Kanye West is running for president in 2024 – with ‘ex-gay’ Milo Yiannopoulos’ help
Kanye West has enlisted alt-right commentator Milo Yiannopoulos in an anticipated 2024 presidential campaign.
On Saturday (20 November) the pair were spotted by paparazzi heading into West’s studio.
“This is Milo right here, working on the campaign,” West says in a video by X17.
“Is that an announcement,” Yiannopoulos asks West.
“I guess it is,” West responds.
The clip follows West and Yiannopoulos into the studio to reveal what seems to be campaign merchandise sporting “Ye24” branding.
The announcement comes only a month after West came under fire for a slew of anti-semitic remarks, which cost him more than one billion dollars in brand deals in a matter of weeks.
He was also banned from Twitter, before his friend Elon Musk took over the social media platform and reinstated his account.
But West’s alignment with the alt-right began much earlier than this, making him and Yiannopoulos a predictable, but dangerous, pairing.
“I hope people will support and pray for me, if for no other reason than they share my delight at the prospect of Milo Yiannopoulos furiously and indignantly railing against homosexuals for sins of the flesh,” Yiannopoulos said in an interview with Christian outlet LifeSite news in 2021.
He went on to announce plans for a conversion therapy venture in Florida.
In 2017, Yiannopoulos was fired from Brietbart News after he appeared to condone statutory rape and sexual relationships between underage boys and men.
Most recently, he worked as an unpaid intern for conservative, anti-LGBTQ+ congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene.
Reactions to the West/Yiannopoulos partnership have begun to spread on Twitter.
Can someone tell @kanyewest that this is the same Milo Yiannopoulos who resigned from Breitbart News over his disgusting pedophilia remarks. Or never mind, RIP 2024 Ye-campaign. https://t.co/fe9d2jf0Vp— Arzu ? (@pantarheio) November 20, 2022
Kanye West, don't care about Black people. He's scheming with right wing bigot and white supremacist Milo Yiannopoulos to cause more chaos.https://t.co/OOPoa87DuB— Michael Crawford ?️? (@dmcrawford) November 21, 2022
When asked later in the clip if West was truly running for president, he said yes.
“It’s simple,” he said. “It’s just we’re moving toward the future.”
