Kanye West's presidential bid

Things went downhill when Kanye West gave a teary speech at his unusual debut political rally in South Carolina in which he appeared wearing a military style jacket with ‘2020’ shaved into the back of his head. He broke down in tears and said some controversial things like one about wanting to abort his first child, North.

Wearing a bullet-proof jacket marked "security," West gave a rambling speech in which he claimed he had wanted his wife, Kim Kardashian, to get an abortion and that renowned American abolitionist Harriet Tubman "never actually freed the slaves."

The event was for registered guests only, and all attendees were required to sign a COVID-19 liability release form as well as wear masks and practice social distancing, US media reported. Less than four months ahead of November's election, West, 43, raised eyebrows on July 4 when he announced on Twitter he would challenge Trump.
