Trump is still an asshole, even if you happen to be on of his staunchest supporters, apparently. Last night, Trump had another one of his infamously Covid-19 ridden events, only this time, elderly supporters were left to either freeze to death, or brave the elements for the miles long walk back to their vehicles. I live in a later time zone than most of you, so I’m up late at night scouring the internet to see what Trump plans to do in order to kill me in my sleep. This left me on hand and alert when reports started coming in about the people being rushed to the hospital with symptoms of hypothermia. I’ll let The Lincoln Project tell you what happened to Trump’s biggest fans last night in the cold while waiting for buses to take them back to their cars.
You hear that shit? He left HUNDREDS of supporters behind, with no transportation.
The president left on Air Force One just after 9 p.m following the event at the Eppley Airfield. But many of his supporters were stuck there until very late at night, miles away from their cars, waiting for the buses the Trump campaign had chartered to shuttle attendees back to the parking lot…Thirty people were “contacted for medical reasons” and seven were transported to the hospital from the event, a spokesperson for the Omaha Police Department told BuzzFeed News.
He had these people outside waiting on busses that were obviously never ever ever going to come, who does that? Trump. Not only were there hundreds of people still left outside in the cold when the busses the campaign chartered left, never to return, temperatures were so cold, at least 30 had to be taken to the hospital for weather related medical issues.
According to Omaha Scanner, a Twitter account that monitors local emergency scanners in the area, a number of people had to be treated for hypothermia and other conditions as a result of the cold. One older adult was reported to be “frozen cold unable to move with an altered mental status.”
Oh look! Trump is trying to throw Grandma off a Ice Cliff!! Where is Paul Ryan when you need him? Oh, that’s right, he quit when he saw the orange disaster coming.
While the Trump campaign claimed it had hired “plenty of buses” but was simply “having trouble getting them to people still waiting because traffic flow on the small, two-lane airport access road” was limited to one direction, a police officer said that “at least 30 more buses” were needed to accommodate people, according to a CNN reporter.
Just like the Titanic, there weren’t enough lifeboats, or in this case, heated busses, to tote all of his fanatical supporters back to safety. Instead they had to either hoof it back to their cars, or rely on emergency services to come pick their half frozen bodies up and cart them to the local hospital.
In a statement, Samantha Zager, Trump’s deputy national press secretary, said they “always strive to provide the best guest experience at our events and we care about their safety. President Trump loves his supporters and was thrilled to visit Omaha last night,” Zager said. “Despite the cold, tens of thousands of people showed up for his rally. Because of the sheer size of the crowd, we deployed 40 shuttle buses instead of the normal 15, but local road closures and resulting congestion caused delays.”
Oh, please, Samantha! We know Trump doesn’t give a shit about his supporters, and we know y’all didn’t do anything when you heard they were out there freezing last night. This whole situation is a mere glimpse at what trump has in store for all of us if he manages to win another term. I tend to see people who attend a Trump rally as lost causes, so I doubt many who actually suffered harm will change their minds and not vote for him. It’s really sad how terribly Trump treats his own fans, and even though their minds are completely twisted, it’s hard for me to say they deserve to suffer like that, so I won’t. I will say “We told you so.” and hope a few of his hypothermic superfans wake the hell up before it’s too late for all of us.

What’s been up in the world of aging rappers with too much time on their hands? Ice Cube is doubling down on his bullshit plan of trying to help trump win the election, Kanye West is STILL running for President himself, and we even have some new youthful adherents to the message of the Marmalade Messiah, like Lil Pump, who is seriously hating on Uncle Joe. But, 50 Cent, aka “That Brotha Who Endorsed Trump to Keep His Taxes Low” has suddenly pulled the plug on his burgeoning relationship with the Orange Spasm, better known as President Trump. Amazingly enough, 50 has not only decided that he never really endorsed Trump, he has realized that he never liked Trump anyway. Not only that, he thinks maybe Trump is the one who got his friend Angel Fernandez killed. Yes, you read that right, 50 is Scarface, and he pulled an “I don’t know him” with a side of “You know he maybe got my boy killed, but maybe not, who knows?”
Rapper and actor 50 Cent has apparently retracted his endorsement of President Trump, saying, “I never liked him.”
That makes sense, actually. You can’t really find many people who actually LIKE Donald Trump, you can only find people who have to say they like him, and people so evil you don’t really care if they really like him or not.
Last week, Jackson posted an apparent endorsement of Trump on Instagram, citing Biden’s proposed tax plan, which would raise rates for those who make more than $400,000 a year. In the caption of the post, he wrote, “I don’t care Trump doesn’t like black people 62% are you out of ya f—ing mind.”
Wait… Maybe I have whiplash from the quick turnaround, but did I miss the part where 50 changed his mind on caring about Trump’s racism, or nah? I expected him to flip flop, but I was not actually ready for the rapper’s response to a video clip of his Ex-Girlfriend Chelsea Handler on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. It was ODD, to say the least, so let’s read their exchange, shall we, and see if his response makes any sense whatsoever.
“He doesn’t want to pay 62 percent of taxes because he doesn’t want to go from 50 Cent to 20 Cent,” said Handler. “I had to remind him that he was a Black person, so he can’t vote for Donald Trump, and that he shouldn’t be influencing an entire swath of people who may listen to him because he’s worried about his own personal pocketbook.”
So, she pretty much says what all the rest of us have been saying about him since he came out, unasked as hell, and gave his endorsement of Mr. Donald Trump for President. For her to have to remind him that, as a Black man with status, he should not be using his influence to assist Trump, against the best interests of Black people, and to stop being selfish. Normally, I would be mad that a White woman stepped in to say that, but in this case, I’m just glad SOMEONE had the ability to change his mind. Not sure I’m buying the whole “I never liked him,” canard. As a matter of fact, I’m not buying it AT ALL. But, whatever.
Um? For all you know? This rather feels like an attempt to muddy the waters and pretend you never liked the man who gave you all those delicious tax breaks, my dude. I mean, I don’t like Trump either, for all I know he’s the one who has been stealing half a pair of socks out of my dryer periodically when I’m not looking, but then again, maybe it’s my weird ass neighbor who has drunken sex parties that takes them. Whether it’s my neighbor or it’s Trump, I DO NOT want those socks back, Lord knows what they’ve done with them.
I don’t know whether Trump had anything to do with getting any of 50’s friends killed, I’m guessing, maybe not, but really, I wouldn’t put anything past the Trump Crime Family, so all y’all best watch ya backs in case the Trumps get buck. I’ll be out here on Black Rapper Watch, waiting to see which one of these political gadflies of the Rap industry decides to embarrass Black America next, and act like our leaders and the representatives of Blackness itself.

It’s July, and people are writing articles about Kanye West running for President.
This is silly.
Kanye West is NOT running for President, no matter what he says, thinks, believes, or dreams. Kanye literally has no idea what Presidents even do. I will spend my precious time here today explaining why the media needs to stop paying attention to West. Additionally, let me stress this now: his family needs to intervene and do something to help Mr. West get the help he needs to live a rewarding and successful life, without delusions of running for President making his condition worse. West appears to be suffering an episode before out very eyes, and regardless of how much I hate what he is saying, I am empathetic to his plight. I wouldn’t bother to write this if it were not for the media feeding into his delusions and doling them out to the masses, some of whom still believe Pizza-gate was real and have now glommed onto this Wayfair Cabinet Child Sex Trafficking Ring conspiracy theory.
So, let’s talk Kanye, shall we?
What has Kanye West done to show he’s ready to be President of the most powerful nation on the Planet?
What led him to this ridiculous place of running under the banner of the Birthday Party?
How have the past few years prepared him for such a demanding job?
I’ll tell you what he’s been up to since Trump became President, since that’s just about as far back as I can remember.
Last year, like the two years prior, Kanye West and his wife spent a significant amount of time sucking our energy with their endless sycophantic fuckery. In July of 2019, we saw Kanye contacting the President himself, in an attempt to maneuver the release of A$AP Rocky, who was at the time being held in a Swedish Jail due to charges stemming from a street fight the rapper and his crew got into against some very aggressive locals in Stockholm. Donald Trump agreed to contact the Swedish Prime Minister and get on his nerves until the rap artist was released from the jail and sent home. He was like unto fucking MOSES himself, in the way he dedicated himself to the liberation of the rap star, indeed, by the time the rapper was released, Trump was on the verge of screaming “LET MY PEOPLE GO, Pharaoh!” He REALLY needed a new Black Friend. Apparently Trump is super annoying, because even though the Swedish Authorities had decided to move ahead with charges against A$AP Rocky, they still ended up finding a way to send him the fuck up out of Sweden for a small fine, likely so that Trump would stop texting the PM and calling back to back. A$AP Rocky appeared to believe Trump’s “help” was a bit counter-productive. I only say that because, once released, A$AP Rocky showed gratitude to a list of people, and zero of those people happened to be Donald Trump. Also? He ghosted him.
In 2018, Kanye was learning how to be off his meds, which is the exact opposite of what I would prefer, because he appears to be suffering now likely due to his decision to cold turkey his medication for interfering with his creativity. He released an album that year, took trips to Montana, he left Twitter, found his motivation with Tony Robbins, and came back back to Twitter with a vengeance to promote his 2018 Album, and creatively stress all of us the fuck out. In 2017 Kanye announced that he and Kim were having some more babies via surrogate, so, we had been hoping for a Blessed 2018. After Kanye declared in 2017 that Slavery had been “a choice” we all really needed some time away from West and his bullshit. No such luck was in store for us. In 2016, Kim Kardashian West was robbed at gunpoint, an event that seems to have fueled Kanye’s erratic behavior, leading him to spend some time hospitalized for his bi-polar disorder. Yeah, Bro. Been there myself, it’s a stressful world. 2016 is also the year that Kanye reignited his long running feud with Taylor Swift, and saw the rise of another apparent narcissist, Donald J Trump. Apparently, the reality TV star became quite good friends with the enigmatic entertainer, leading to the past few years of MAGA hat wearing, Candace Owens befriending, crazy shit about slavery saying, Kanye Muthafucking MAGA West, y’all.
So, how the fuck did we get to a point where every news outlet is taking Kanye West one bit seriously on his claims to be running for President? Did you read anything in what I wrote that indicates that Kanye West has been laying the groundwork for a 2020 run for office at any level? Hell no. The only thing that has changed is the fact that Trump is in a really shitty place with not much hope of winning the November GE, and Kanye has decided to take the Red Hat off and “end” his support for his “friend” Donald. Or so he says. Trump says “Kanye is always going to be for us.” This might be one of those rare times Trump is telling the truth.
Kanye West is breaking with Donald Trump and focusing on his own presidential bid. The rapper has said he’s disappointed in the President and is no longer a supporter. “I am taking the red hat off, with this interview,” West said.
Ok, but it was always one big mess? You never minded before. Anyway, West sat down for an interview with Forbes Magazine that should have ended any speculation that Kanye West was seriously running for President.
Here are some of the things we learned from his interview with Forbes:
That he’s ok with siphoning off Black votes from the Democratic nominee, thus helping Trump. “I’m not denying it, I just told you. To say that the Black vote is Democratic is a form of racism and white supremacy.” (Kinda sounds like Trump is keeping it real. Wow.)
Kanye. Saying slaves chose slavery is White Supremacy and Racism, boo. We are not saying Black People HAVE to vote Democratic, we are just saying that Black Voters DO vote Democratic. Do we mean every single last Black Person votes Dem or is required to? No. Stop listening to the GOP.
That he’s never voted in his life.
What the fuck is your problem, muthafucka? Who does this? You don’t even vote? Shut up.
That he’s suspicious of a coronavirus vaccine, terming vaccines “the mark of the beast.”
Here we go with this shit. The Left Behind Series did a lot of damage to American Culture.
That he believes “Planned Parenthoods have been placed inside cities by white supremacists to do the Devil’s work.”
Shut UP! I just don’t have time for this.
That he envisions a White House organizational model based on the secret country of Wakanda in Black Panther.
That’s a fucking movie. It’s not real. Fuuuuck.
He says he definitely plans to run in 2020, versus his original plan in 2024. The campaign slogan: “YES!” His running mate? Michelle Tidball, an obscure preacher from Wyoming. And why the Birthday Party? “Because when we win, it’s everybody’s birthday.”
Oh, hell no.
Go fuck yourself, Kanye.
“I’m not saying Trump’s in my way, he may be a part of my way. And Joe Biden? Like come on man, please. You know? Obama’s special. Trump’s special. We say Kanye West is special. America needs special people that lead. Bill Clinton? Special. Joe Biden’s not special.”
Who is “WE”? We best not include ME. So, it’s pretty clear Kanye is just in need of a lot of attention right now, and if he plans on helping anyone get elected, it will likely be Trump. Do not vote for Kanye.
“Trump is the closest president we’ve had in years to allowing God to still be part of the conversation.”
Okay, so why did Obama and Hillary’s praying always annoy me? Obama literally sounds like a Preacher, and Hillary raised Chelsea, who prayed for Rush Limbaugh after he insulted her as a child. Hillary prays ALL THE TIME. I saw her doing it in 2016, I kept my eye on her, and she was prolific. Also? Trump doesn’t believe in God. I’ve never seen him go to Church unless he felt obligated.
This is the worst shit of all:
“One time I talked to Jared Kushner who was saying, ‘We don’t have Black leaders, we just have hustlers.’ Why? Because they killed all the Black leaders.” (Requests for comment from the White House and the Kushner Companies last night were not immediately returned.)
Holy. Mutha. Fucking. Shit. Kanye? You were supposed to be mad when that son of a Felon said that shit about Black People, bruh. I don’t have time for Kanye.
“Let’s see if the appointing is at 2020 or if it’s 2024—because God appoints the president. If I win in 2020 then it was God’s appointment. If I win in 2024 then that was God’s appointment.”
Meh. You don’t even VOTE, so why would God make you President? She wouldn’t.
Here is the only thing he said that made any fucking sense whatsoever:
“Thou shalt not kill. I’m against the death penalty.”
If you silly muthafuckas take your dumb asses to the polls and vote for Kanye West, you deserve all the fuckery Trump can offer. I, personally, will simply hate you. Don’t ever confess that sin to me unless you have plenty of room to run away from my ass before I shake some sense into your soul. Kanye is NOT running for President. He is running to be cast in a movie about a patient in a psych ward who believes he is running for President. The ONLY person Kanye can help with his candidacy is Donald Fucking Trump. So, please don’t report on his Presidential run anymore. He is not running. He is Wilding, tho.
Time for Kim and the Gang to get her man some help.
