How do you feel about websites where people with similar interests share their opinions?

He is running in 2020, Trump has no real chance of winning this time, no matter how the poles look, unless Trump runs again then we will never see that debate.

True, but I don't think this thread required logic.  ;D

Hey, buddy...

trying to give the people what they want

Not criticizing the thread.  It's all over the news and it's totally entertaining.  Although, I think when he sobers up in the morning, he will lose interest.  It's really not the best idea to speak in front of millions when high.

JK. But I watched on replay afterward and it did seem like an impulsive statement. So yea, I agree, whether it's tomorrow or in 3 years, I can see him losing interest / sobering up / realizing how insane the idea is.

So I guess Trump never sobered up?  Or he always acts drunk and/or high.

Eff it, if Trump can run, why not Kanye?

Maybe a trend will develop. Only requisites are fame and uncontrolled narcissism.

So business as usual, then?

  Other than fame replacing money.

He has every right to run.   I hope he does it, it might be amusing.

still don't understand the fascination for this talent-less hack. 

3 biggest things he's known for aren't talent-related:
1. barging onstage to interrupt Taylor Swift at a music award show
2. hooking up with the country's other best known talent-less 'celebrity' Kim Kardashian
3. giving his kid an inane name "north".

would love nothing better than for this ass-clown to disappear from the national spotlight.

Possibly TMI, but I was on the toilet in a public restroom when I read this and totally busted up laughing. Thanks.... lol TP!

:P  Guess so. Would this not be a new extreme? Too young and removed from politics to know..

I think anyone who looks at themselves in the mirror and says "yes, I could be President" is possessed with a very strong narcissistic streak.

It almost follows that anyone who looks at themselves in the mirror and says "yes, I could (or worse, should) be President" is someone we may want to immediately rule out.   It takes quite a bit of over-confidence to have the belief that you are capable of being a national/world leader.   I like confidence interspersed with a nice dose of humility.

Note that every president we've ever had for more than one term has been embroiled in some form of major scandal.  Examples: Nixon (Watergate); Reagan (Iran-Contra); Clinton (Whitewater; Lewinsky); Bush (Iraq/WMD; Katrina/FEMA); Obama (VA; IRS/Conservative targeting).    In other words, no one can really manage the magnitude of this job without some humility and the ability to acknowledge one's own limitations.  I don't trust that Trump really understands the difference in complexity between building your father's $50M real estate holdings into a multi-billion dollar empire and being the CEO of the United States of America.

That said, I have no doubt that Kanye could do it.

Agreed. That's an old Carlin bit, I think, something about finding the one person who says "no, absolutely not" and dragging him into office.

re: Trump, he's not a real candidate, he's not even pretending to be. I think the whole thing has shown just how willing people are to conflate wealth with capability, which is dangerous.
At least a goldfish with a Lincoln Log on its back goin' across your floor to your sock drawer has a miraculous connotation to it.

He does make great sounding records, though.

Very ignorant thing to say he is talent-less

Luckily, it's the same situation as Trump -- they attract what are called "low-information voters", and those are the people who don't vote in Primaries. I don't think Yeezy runs as an independent.
