We all know that the Donald Trump 2020 campaign has been manipulating a deeply disturbed Kanye West into running for President, in the hope of picking off a few of Joe Biden’s votes and perhaps giving Trump a chance in any swing states that were already close to begin with. But like all things the Trump cartel touches, Kanye’s presidential bid is already dying of incompetence.
Weeks ago we brought you the story of how Kanye West had managed to get on the ballot in Wisconsin by submitting petitions that included fake signatures from the likes of “Mickey Mouse” and “Bernie Sanders.” It turns out he didn’t even file the fake signatures in time, and now the Milwaukee Sentinel Journal newspaper is reporting that Wisconsin has removed Kanye from the state’s ballot.
We’ve already seen Kanye West removed from the ballot in Illinois, for similar reasons of fraudulent ineptitude. But Joe Biden was always going to win Illinois handily, Kanye or no Kanye. Wisconsin is expected to be a closer result, and even if Kanye had gotten one percent of the vote in the state, it could have made a difference. So it’s a big deal that Kanye won’t be on the ballot in the key swing state.
