UPDATE: Breitbart is freaking out about Trump eating dinner with Fuentes who is a “Holocaust denier.”
I have given Kanye credit for drawing attention to the Jewish Question. I think anything that helps to undermine that taboo by exposing Jewish power and influence is positive. We need to keep trying to move the Overton Window on that issue like we have with other issues.
“Ye said that he thinks Trump was “most perturbed” by him asking the former president to be his VP, but that the former president was “really impressed with Nick Fuentes — and Nick Fuentes, unlike so many of the lawyers and people that he was left with on his 2020 campaign, he’s actually a loyalist.” …
“Nick attended the dinner and sat across from the president. I sat to the president’s right and Ye to his left,” Giorno said. “The president was by himself for dinner but invited Ye to meet some people on the patio.” …
By this point, the whole meeting was becoming a disaster.
“Trump starts getting edgy, antsy, fidgety — and angry. He can’t get them out of there fast enough,” the source said.
“When they get up to leave, there is an enormous line of people who want photos with Ye, and not a single one of them asked for one with Trump alone,” the source said. “Trump was just kind of allowed to join in some of them. By the end, Trump was like, ‘is the car here? Is the car here? Where’s their car?’” …”
At the same time, Kanye is apparently running for president in 2024 and MILO is going to be his campaign manager. He is hanging out with Nick Fuentes in public. He brought Nick Fuentes to Mar-a-Lago to meet Trump who was impressed with him because he is a Trump loyalist.
A few thoughts:
1. Kanye’s presidential campaign isn’t going anywhere. It will just be MILO and Alt-Lite ecelebs grifting off Kanye like maggots as he goes broke.
2. The problem with Trump is that everything he does including running for president in 2024 has always been about Trump. He is a narcissist who surrounds himself with sycophants and flatterers. Trump expects loyalty from others. He isn’t loyal to anyone else. This character flaw derailed his presidency. Trump wants to lockdown influencers like Fuentes to be his cheerleaders in the 2024 primary.
3. The fact that this even happened makes everyone involved look less serious and less likely to defeat Joe Biden in 2024 which is all that really matters.
4. Finally, this is a good career move from Nick. It will elevate him and bring him a larger audience by being associated with Kanye and Trump. I doubt that this will translate into anything beyond that though.
Note: We haven’t seen much winning from the Trump camp in the last three election cycles.
