    Anybody ever consider this decision to run for president was to make sure Trump would win again?

    I wouldn't put it past Ye to come up with an idea like that.
    Ever consider? That's exactly what it was; to siphon votes away from Biden. 
    I thought so too.  Just looking for some agreement.
    Oh yeah. West even had a meeting with Jared Kushner at one point.

    Ye is at it again.  If he has beef with someone he should call them out and not the whole religion.

    So much so that ADIDAS and his talent agency dropped him.  I figure it's only a matter of time before Twitter bans him?

    Kanye or Ye is a billionaire already.  People can drop him but he will still make money.  He seems like he can't be cancelled.

    Weird world we live in right?

    These people don't think he can go off and make his own shoe line?  If Lavar Ball can make his own shoe and sell it direct I'm pretty sure Kanye can make Yeezys that way too.

    With that much money he can do his own Yeezy line.

    Agreed, and this doesn't say much for all the people who help make him a very wealthy man.  I'll never understand that.  People are weird.

    Apparently so, for some.  I don't argue taste in music.  It's just not my thing and I'm particular glad for that because the man never made a single dollar off of me and for what he has become, I'm very good with that.

    I enjoy his stuff but never bought anything either.  I always wanted a copy of Watch the Throne though.  He collabed w Jay Z on that one.

    That's cool.  My comment was more about people who still support him.  Hard for me to understand that.

    It is weird but at the same time people still supported Michael Jackson, R Kelly, Kevin Spacey Donald Trump and so on...

    I just read up on Murray and that is some real timid stuff.  He comes off as a prankster and some people didn't care for the antics.

    Dumped by Adidas, Kanye showed up at Skechers HQ. They kicked him out.  https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2022/10/26/kanye-west-skechers/ 

     Dumped by Adidas, Kanye showed up at Skechers HQ. They kicked him out.
    By Jaclyn Peiser
    October 26, 2022 at 19:19 ET
    Ye, the musician and fashion designer formerly known as Kanye West, showed up unannounced at the Skechers corporate office in Los Angeles on Wednesday, prompting executives at the footwear company to escort him out of the building.
    “Skechers is not considering and has no intention of working with West,” the company said in a news release. “We condemn his recent divisive remarks and do not tolerate antisemitism or any other form of hate speech.”
    The incident comes one day after Adidas announced it ended its multibillion-dollar partnership with Ye following his continual, brazen antisemitic comments. For weeks, the artist has unleashed diatribes on social media and in podcasts and TV interviews.
    According to Skechers, Ye and others arrived “unannounced and without invitation” and had a “brief conversation” with executives before they were ushered out of the building because they was “engaged in unauthorized filming.”
    Ye’s surprise visit could signal that he may be looking for a new home for his Yeezy footwear brand.
    [These brands have dropped Kanye West amid antisemitism controversy]
    The backlash to the artist’s antisemitic and offensive comments have cost him almost his entire empire. In the weeks before Ye lost the Adidas deal, which Forbes estimates at $1.5 billion by itself, several companies — including French fashion house Balenciaga, JPMorgan Chase, talent agency CAA, and Hollywood financier and producer MRC — ended relationships with the performer. This week, Gap and other companies announced they would no longer carry Ye’s products.
    The artist, who was often described as a creative genius before his latest erratic behavior, has been essentially ostracized from major cultural touchstones. Last week, a spokesman for Vogue told Page Six that the magazine and editor in chief Anna Wintour would no longer work with him. The magazine has a history of working closely with the artist, putting him and Kim Kardashian on the cover when they got married and including his line with Balenciaga in its pages.

    When’s Ye doing a three night stand in the capital of Israel? Maybe campaign with Bibi, being tight with POOTWH, yo.

    Come to think about it, how come Ye isn’t a victim of cancel culture? Oh, never mind.

    Actually, no, I wake up every morning feeling like a I was run over by a Mack truck, but that comes with age and I keep on hacking, man.  But look, what the fuck does my comfort level have to do with the topic at hand?
