  • Are the GOP rules really rigged against Donald Trump?

    CNBC ^ | 2016 April 25 | Bruce Abramson and Jeff Ballabon
    "It's not fair!" may be the most pitiful lament in the English language, but Donald Trump seems intent upon adopting it as his battle cry heading into this summer's Republican convention. The GOP's poorly designed nominating process includes more than its share of problems, but is it really unfair to Trump? ..... < snip > ..... open primaries invite abuse from voters whose goals may not involve selecting the party's strongest representative. Those with deep ties to the party deserve greater input than those with tenuous or nonexistent connections. Yet Democrats and Republicans alike have chosen to pretend otherwise. ........

    The Hamilton Spectator ^ | December 14, 2016
    John Legend is "disappointed" with Kanye West for meeting with Donald Trump. The 'Love Me Now' hitmaker thinks it was a "publicity stunt" for the rapper - who is also his close pal - to meet the President elect. He told Clique: "I don't think it's impossible to talk to [Donald Trump] about issues, but I won't be used as a publicity stunt. I think Kanye was a publicity stunt. "I think Trump has been corrosive, his message has been corrosive to the country. I think the things he's promised to do have been very concerning for a lot of...

    C’mon, they’re a natural pairing. One’s a hip-hop icon, the other’s Kanye West.Katie Pavlich notes that if Obama were missing intel briefings and had just postponed a press conference to address his business conflicts of interest but had found time in the midst of all that to sneak in a photo op with Kanye West, the right would have been unhappy. Correct, but that’s been true of virtually every controversial thing Trump has said and done since at least the McCain POW “joke” in summer 2015, which Republicans would have deemed disqualifying if it had come from O in...

    A representative has confirmed that Kanye West is canceling the rest of his Saint Pablo tour, according to Pitchfork. The decision comes after the rapper ended his set in Sacramento, California, on Saturday early. He performed only three songs and delivered an extended rant about politics, Jay Z, and Beyonc. "The Saint Pablo tour is the most relevant thing happening. If your old a-- keeps following old models, your a-- is going to get Hillary Clintoned. You might not like it, but you need to hear it," West said in the meandering rant, in which he also declared he was...

    If that was Kanye West's way of announcing his candidacy, it could have gone better. On Thursday night, the 39-year-old rapper arrived late to his San Jose concert. Instead of jumping into his set list, West opted to rant about this year's presidential election. "I told y'all I didn't vote, right? But if I were to vote, I would have voted on Trump," he told the crowd, who immediately began booing him.

    As much as I want to throw rotten eggs at anyone who begins talking about the 2020 presidential election this week, particularly after what we’ve just been through, this one is simply too good to pass up. In the aftermath of last Tuesday, Michael Moore went on television to ask why the Democrats can’t just nominate people who are actually beloved by the American people. Well Michael, your wish is granted. As reported by our colleagues at Redstate yesterday, you’ve got a candidate on the way who is a complete outsider and wildly popular with your base. Yes… Kanye...

When I talk about the idea of being president, Im not saying I have any political views, he told Mac. I dont have views on politics, I just have a view on humanity, on people, on the (the) truth. If there is anything that I can do with my time to somehow make a difference while Im still alive, Im all for it. Much to the delight of his fans and shock to...

    Hundreds of people packed the streets outside Webster Hall in Manhattan's East Village after Kanye West teased a surprise concert there early Monday but the concert was ultimately canceled as the crowd grew and grew, leading to a frenzied scene that left behind smashed cars and piles of trash.

    As if rapper Kanye Wests ego needed a boost, now he can say that President Obama opened for him Saturday at the Warfield Theatre in San Francisco. The two men never shared the stage during the fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee. Obama made a beeline for an Air Force One run to Los Angeles for more fundraisers Saturday after speaking for 22 minutes to 1,300 people who paid between $100 and $10,000 to attend. Then West, who Obama referred to as a jackass in 2009 after the rapper interrupted singer Taylor Swift at an awards ceremony, performed for about...

    Kanye West is sharing some thoughts about breaking into the fashion industry. "I feel like I got discriminated in fashion for not being gay," he said during an interview with SHOWstudio on Tuesday. "In music, you definitely get discriminated in music if you are gay. It takes amazing talents to break down barriers. Everyone thought that when Frank Ocean dropped that it was going to be bad for his career. I feel like its so clich to speak about him as it relates to this subject, but there are people who broke the ground and he broke the ground. The...

    Theres a lot of other stuff going on in the world, butt for some reason I cant seem to move on from this gender/pronoun/identity issue. Once I discovered its a real thing, I became mesmerized. No longer constrained to he/she/it, you now have at least 182 (and counting) pronouns to choose from, in 6 different categories (see below). So if you think youve negotiated the waters of the whole gender pronoun issue just because youve nailed the proper grammatical construct of the gender neutral xe,well, lets just say its a little early to be patting zemself on the back.And thats...
