While you were carving the turkey with your family last night, Kanye West was on Twitter, unveiling his 2024 masterplan.
On Thanksgiving night, the rapper posted a video titled “Mar-a-Lago debrief,” in which he said Donald Trump was “really impressed with Nick Fuentes.” That would be the same Nick Fuentes who heads up the far-right incel-adjacent "groyper" movement, attended both the Charlottesville and January 6 protests (he was on the steps of the Capitol) and has spoken critically about the notion that America is a "Judeo-Christian" nation.

While you were carving the turkey with your family last night, Kanye West was on Twitter, unveiling his 2024 masterplan.

On Thanksgiving night, the rapper posted a video titled “Mar-a-Lago debrief,” in which he said Donald Trump was “really impressed with Nick Fuentes.” That would be the same Nick Fuentes who heads up the far-right incel-adjacent “groyper” movement, attended both the Charlottesville and January 6 protests (he was on the steps of the Capitol) and has spoken critically about the notion that America is a “Judeo-Christian” nation.

Also, like Milo Yiannopoulos, he’s now working on the Kanye 2024 campaign. With friends like these…

Ye also claimed that Trump started “screaming” at him about his 2024 run during their dinner earlier this week at the Mar-a-Lago resort.

“When Trump started basically screaming at me at the table telling me I was going to lose, I mean, has that ever worked for anyone in history? I’m like, ‘whoa hold on, hold on, hold on. You’re talking to Ye,'” Kanye chuckled as he recounted the events to Yiannopoulos.

Ye described how he’d asked Trump to be his running mate in 2024 and said the former president was “perturbed.” Given Trump’s own 2024 run and poll numbers, this seems like a reasonable reaction.

In true Kanye style, he also made sure to use the opportunity to drag his ex-wife, Kim Kardashian into the mess, claiming Trump said something bad about her.

“You can tell her I said that,” Trump said to Ye, according to the rapper. Kanye censored what it was that was said. Respectful!

Kanye’s video comes just days after he said he asked Trump to be his 2024 running mate. But Ye has yet to file the necessary paperwork to become a candidate — unlike Trump, who announced his 2024 bid on November 15.

West was spotted at Mar-a-Lago with Fuentes and Yiannopoulos on Tuesday, according to Politico and the Daily Beast. Cassandra Fairbanks, a onetime associate of Yiannopoulos, has a fuller account of the meeting which describes how West also brought Trump 2016 campaign strategist Karen Giorno “as a power move to show that he is serious about his White House bid.”

Perhaps Ye’s embrace of the far-right figures is indicative of what he sees as his lane versus Trump in 2024: criticizing the former president for not freeing the January 6 rioters and claiming he had betrayed his 2016 agenda by failing to deliver.

Raheem Kassam, editor of the National Pulse and a former colleague of Yiannopoulos at Breitbart, claimed the West campaign is a “Mercer-backed op to take out Trump.” Whatever the reason for West’s Thanksgiving antics, they certainly made Cockburn spit out his stuffing.
