Byron York: Kanye West Duped Trump Into Providing Him With a Launching Pad for His 2024 Vanity Presidential Run

And also damaged Trump in doing so.

After trying and failing to quell the controversy about the dinner, Trump issued a new statement in which he attacks "Ye."

"So I help a seriously troubled man, who just happens to be black, Ye (Kanye West), who has been decimated in his business and virtually everything else, and who has always been good to me, by allowing his request for a meeting at Mar-a-Lago, alone, so that I can give him very much needed 'advice'," Trump wrote in a message posted Saturday to his Truth Social account. "He shows up with 3 people, two of which I didn't know, the other a political person who I haven't seen in years. I told him don't run for office, a total waste of time, can't win. Fake News went CRAZY!"

Several prominent Jewish leaders, including David Friedman, who served as Trump's U.S. Ambassador to Israel from 2017-2021, have been critical of the former president for the meeting hosted at his Palm Beach, Florida estate.

The dinner was also attended by white nationalist Nick Fuentes.


Byron York thinks Trump got "played" by someone even better at trolling and media manipulation than he is.


TRUMP GETS PLAYED. What is sure to be one of the weirder moments of the 2024 presidential campaign has just taken place before the campaign is even fully underway.

Here is the short version: Just before Thanksgiving, former President Donald Trump had dinner at Mar-a-Lago with Kanye West, Nick Fuentes, and Milo Yiannopoulos. West is the famous rapper, businessman, and reported bipolar disorder patient who says he will run for president in 2024, a campaign he began last month by announcing on Twitter that he was "going death con 3 on JEWISH PEOPLE," a threat that brought him widespread condemnation and the loss of lucrative contracts. Fuentes, who many readers might not have heard of, is a 24-year-old white nationalist self-promoter who has sought publicity and online donations with a long series of racist and antisemitic statements and is now, apparently, working for West's so-called campaign. Yiannopoulos is a 38-year-old British provocateur who has spent a good part of his life doing the same sort of thing that Fuentes does and is now apparently also working for YE24, which is how West, who wants to be known simply as "Ye," refers to his presidential campaign.

What do they have in common? Well, Fuentes and Yiannopoulos are joined in a quest to exploit West's money and fame. But as far as politics is concerned, the greater similarity is that they are all lowlifes who should never be allowed near a former president of the United States, much less a current candidate for president. And yet Trump shared a table at Mar-a-Lago with them. The event quickly leaked because that is precisely what West, Fuentes, and Yiannopoulos intended. The usual suspects in the media and political world immediately denounced Trump. And in this case, they were correct; as a former president recently embarked on another campaign, Trump shouldn't have anything to do with fringe figures such as Ye and his crew. And yet there they were.

Who benefits from this ugly and stupid little event? Well, it was a publicity coup for West, Fuentes, and Yiannopoulos -- after all, they don't have any reputations to lose -- while Trump looks like he has been played by a trio of clever publicity hounds. And Trump did not make himself look any better with his increasingly panicked-sounding explanations for what took place.

...


As Trump was explaining, West and Fuentes were laughing. Both seemed delighted at having pulled off the coup of enlisting Trump, the former president, in a stunt to promote West's own presidential foray.
...

So at Mar-a-Lago, West and Fuentes managed to recruit Trump to play an unwitting role in West's campaign show. Judging by the videos they made, they seemed to think it was both a major accomplishment and absolutely hilarious.


...

Meanwhile, Trump has been damaged, again, by his own actions. There is a debate about how intentional those actions were. Despite his protests of ignorance, did the former president in fact know who Fuentes was and decided to send some sort of message by dining with him? The answer to that is unclear. But Trump certainly knew who West was and welcomed him. That's bad enough. It is hard to see what benefit Trump might have expected from the dinner. What was it going to accomplish? Score points with the alt-right fringe? Lock up the groyper vote? (For those who do not follow such things, "groyper" is the word referring to Fuentes's relatively small and contentious group of followers.)

What seems more likely is that Trump did not have any clear intention for the dinner. So why did he take part in it? For one thing, he loves celebrities, and Kanye West, even damaged Kanye West, is a celebrity. Trump also loves flattery, and West had said all those nice things about Trump on TV. And at the dinner, Fuentes was a veritable flattery machine, repeatedly telling Trump how great Trump was. Not surprisingly, Trump thought Fuentes was a really sharp guy. In other words, West, Fuentes, and Yiannopoulos might simply have pushed Trump's buttons over and over and over. That might be all there was to it.

The celebrity thing. The flattery thing. Oy.

Does Trump have no one around him to warn him against this sort of thing? Or have they all by now learned that warning him is futile?

"Ye's" stunt also damaged other Republicans, who are now being demanded to denounce Trump, but can't, because if you say anything bad about Trump's many dick self-stompings, you're "taking the left's side." So you have to make Trump's baggage your own.

RINO Bill Cassidy of course has run out to denounce:

U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy, M.D.
@SenBillCassidy

President Trump hosting racist antisemites for dinner encourages other racist antisemites. These attitudes are immoral and should not be entertained. This is not the Republican Party.

I don't know how eager others will be to stand up for Trump. People may be getting tired of the long list of things they're expected to say "don't matter" and may want Trump to begin exhibiting some discipline and judgment so that this list of things that "don't matter" stops growing.

On the other hand:

Oh, I should say that I have no idea what Elon is referring to here. It could be any of a dozen different current Regime psyops.

Those years were high humor

First: If rumors of the president having sex with an intern are true he'll have to resign! He'll just have to!

Then: Well it was a consensual private matter between two adults. It wasn't like he sexually harassed someone

A little later: Well uh, that whole thing were he paid a woman for sexually harrassing her was just a misunderstanding. See he thought his employee wanted to see his p*nis. You know? Its not like he raped someone!

And then: Ok, fine he raped someone. But since she was an adult she probably actually wanted him or something.

Finally: There is no proof that when Clinton went to Epstein island that he raped any of the underage sex slaves there. I mean, he probably just wanted to see the beach right?

Posted by: Bilwis Devourer of Innocent Souls, I'm starvin' over here at November 28, 2022 02:22 PM (cupoy)

90 I literally have no one idea who Nick Fuentes is but if the MSM says he's a white supremacist, that's the gold standard right there, and you can take it to the bank.

I'm going to go with he's just a largely powerless shit stirrer in the mold of Milo Yionoppolis and is being used as a cudgel against anyone the MSM can.

Again, I have no idea who he is and since he has largely escaped the larger zeitgeist other than being held up as a white supremacist to impugn MAGA and conservatism generally, he's either a con artist, Op or dupe, perhaps all three.

Everything is an Op.
Everything is bullshit.

137 This was his biggest character flaw, falling for a anyone that kisses his ass. He could have a senator that agrees with him 99.99% of the time, but if that senator says one thing against Trump then Trump will try to burn that person down, on the other hand someone can be totally against Trump,but if they say something nice about him than Trump wil bend overt backwards for them. It's why he was often surrounded by people who were just there to sabotage his agenda.

With Kanye he got screwed multiple times, like when Kanye's skank of a wife decided to get Trump to start pardoning "just grandmas in prison for a little pot" except that grandma was laundering money for a violent drug gang she was part of for years. But Trump caved from flattery.

Trump needs to remember more and more people are going to be out to get him now, and if history is any indication he'll fall for it every time.

He was a provocateur. A gadfly, even. And one of the earliest victims of cancel culture, enough that a major publisher cancelled his book deal if I recall correctly.

Still unsure of the logic behind the witch-hunters of New Salem, but: Milo touched the topic of gay grooming. He didn't speak against it, but instead talked about his experience.

He was the groom-ee, not the groom-er.

So he was the victim, didn't condemn it, but was destroyed. Now we have flat-end bell-curvers teaching pre-teens to mutilate themselves and they're protected.

Yes, the guy may be a kook but that doesn't make him a white supremacist. In terms of Holocaust denial, he's about mainstream for Democraps. I'm very skeptical about buying into our enemies' inflammatory labels like "white supremacist" -- especially when the dude is Mexican. Would I have advised Trump to meet with him? No. But this is a tempest in a teapot.

I cannot argue these points. I also don't know who he has around him at this point since he lives at a resort community or whatever away from the public eye.

He did not do well in his first run at public office. I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt that he's learned lessons.

He trusted Kanye because they'd had a good relationship up until that point. It COULD be that Trump knew Kanye said the anti-sematic but was trying to 'help' him and guide him differently because of said relationship.

But, who knows. Trump is who Trump is and everyone will treat him how they will forevermore. It doesn't sway me much.

I 'm confused. I'm not saying he's not a moron. Like "the moon landing was faked" people, but is he actually a racist who believes the master race should be permitted to exploit and exterminate lessers? Or is he saying that the whole thing never happened? There is a difference between the two. On the one hand he'd be an idiot, on the other he'd be a racist, and with both, he'd be a racist idiot. If he's a racist, and anti semite it'd be like all the democratic candidates hanging with Farrakahn. If he's an idiot, it'd be like everyday in DC.

Yeah, this is much ado about nothing. Don't know a whole lot about Fuentes, but I agree with you about his name. Definitely diminishes the "white supremacist" argument.

Sadly, there is no one better for this moment than Trump.

I've stated that I think it would be foolish and disastrous for DeSantis to abandon Florida for a run at the Capital City.

He's going to find just as many problems and resistance trying to work his will as Trump did.

Another area of concern for DeSantis is that he is ex-military and we have no idea what a DeSantis foreign policy would be, for all we know he's a Bolton type.

One of the things that attracted people to Trump was his deep animosity towards foreign entanglements, wars and interventionism.

My suspicion is DeSantis is more of an establishment type Republican in this area than Trump was.

I looked further into the story and found some lefties had already outed the ONE guy behind this. He was a former (white) rapper who had a couple of moderately successful songs (they are still on youtube, apple music, etc).

The FNM says he makes enough money selling knock off white supremacist materials to pay rent and travel around the country. I call...bullshit.

Note: Even though some lefties outed him, he wasn't cancelled.

How to explain all this? Well...the most obvious answer is...fed. A white supremacist former rapper who worked with other black rappers? Who makes his money selling...t-shirts? And who corporate behemoths like youtube won't cancel?

This is something that would be expected to come up if and/or when DeSantis runs for president.

Personally, my single biggest issue with Trump right now is probably the fact that if he wins, he's a lame duck. A good chunk of Trump's power right now comes purely from the threat of him winning the next election. As odd as it sounds, in some ways his power actually decreases if he wins the presidency again because everyone knows for a fact that he'll no longer be holding office in four years.

Right? Made no sense. I have never listened to Fuentes and have no baseline for him but he's described in "news" articles as a white supremacist and how does that work?

237 What I'm seeing here is that the only-Trump crowd is willing to concede another 4 years to the Biden junta if Trump isn't the nominee. I hope it's just fervent support for what people believe is the candidate who will fight the hardest for real conservative principals. If Trump is all about winning, he can't be blindsided by things like this meeting that he admitted was a mistake.

I don't give a shit about Nick Fuentes or his idiotic beliefs, the discussion is about how much it really hurts Trump.

I got on my high horse. Sorry about that. But apart from the question of "do people care" *is* the question of, *objectively*, is it good to have a leader meeting with this kind of trash?

How many times have we trashed Democrats offering the "I was ignorant" excuse, saying, either he's lying or he's stupid? Neither of these options is good for Trump.

The left is really separating itself from the country by insisting that the public doesn't mind drag queens teaching kids about transgenderism. We are now at the same point, of insisting that the public "doesn't mind" a little white supremacy or Holocaust denial here or there. They do. And they think it's weird and bad.

That's the point I am at. One anti-semitism is only used when it is politically expedient. The Dems have tons of them and their Jewish voters are more than happy to keep voting for them. They don't care so why should I? Next, who cares what the yahoo's believe. My grandmother didn't believe we landed on the moon. Unless they are doing something violent or truly illegal, so what. Finally, no one on the right stood up and said, "We don't like what Kanye said, but he shouldn't have his life ruined." Nope, they were all happy with cancel culture. The 1st Amendment only matters sometimes.

Addendum, let me know when the people decrying Kanye and Fuentes go with the same gusto after the anti-Christian, white male bigots.

Personally, my single biggest issue with Trump right now is probably the fact that if he wins, he's a lame duck. A good chunk of Trump's power right now comes purely from the threat of him winning the next election. As odd as it sounds, in some ways his power actually decreases if he wins the presidency again because everyone knows for a fact that he'll no longer be holding office in four years.

So, what upsets York and others is down to the "optics" of it, maybe. But I even doubt that York, deep down, even cares about that. This is politics, played out by phonies who want their brand of POL in office and not yours - they're allowed to play that game and Trump shouldn't give them easy material - his failing is he doesn't care. But we can easily see what this is.

263 I understand and realize a double standard exists for acceptable behavior and positions between Dems and Republicans. We can go over all the hypocrisies and BS the Dems say and do.

The fact is, a Republican presidential candidate MUST be beyond reproach and have no perceived issues or problems. The press and their ilk will hound and highlight any problems, and unfortunately the LIV will attach these problems to the candidate and refuse to vote for him/her.

Trump has this problem. There are so many people I know who, even though they agree with Trump on many issues, will NOT vote for him. They will cut off their nose to spite their face. They find him repulsive.

Republicans need to understand this. I voted for Trump twice and love him. But he had too much baggage and issues that make him electable to a large percentage of the electorate, mainly swing voters.

We have to face reality. Trump cannot win. Does not matter that he should win. He is radioactive.

If we expect our leaders to be perfect we are never going to find one good enough. And again, I already think Trump has an issue with picking the people he associates with, but I'd rather talk about him selecting Pence or Scaramucci

303 Trump has this problem. There are so many people I know who, even though they agree with Trump on many issues, will NOT vote for him. They will cut off their nose to spite their face. They find him repulsive.

We have to face reality. Trump cannot win. Does not matter that he should win. He is radioactive.
Posted by: Czech Chick at November 28, 2022 02:43 PM (6Tc2R)

Another reality to face is that there are other millions who have only voted Republican because of and for Trump. Not anyone else. They don't trust the other GOP and especially GOPe.

So who wins this tug of war?

304 Over the weekend I read a book about the 2020 election: The Parallel Election: A Blueprint for Deception : Evidence of Massive Election Fraud in Delaware County, Pennsylvania.

What went on there was repeated in every single state. The authors' suit is still pending.

I understand it was much worse in 2024. They filed for the 2024 election and were given a 9-hour evidentiary after which the hack judge tossed the suit.

Also turns out that Doug Mastriano was a rat - he had no intention of investigating voter fraud. I went to see him during the campaign and he skeeved me out - there was something creepy about him.

Anyway, elections no longer matter, and it's not just the Dems.

The whole trio would set off alarm bells at Creekmore - and lots of pols meet and greet with these types of insane people - you look at your normal self in the mirror and say, I could never get a private dinner meeting with a former President, but these three loony-toons get one?

But fame, fortune and politics is just plain weird - on all sides of the ideological perspective.

308 Media political discourse is just insane. "White supremacists" ally with black rappers, and also just hapoen to be Latino. Meanwhile, the non-racist civil rights equality leaders openly say "all white people are evil", while the rebellious counterculture are backed by all the biggest corporations and support the 80 year old lifetime pols in DC.

309 5 years ago, Trump would have found a way to turn this on the Democrats.

But his playbook is tired and worn out.

I recall often the story of his initial campaign, just him in an empty boardroom firing off tweets. And he was dead in the water.

That's Trump now, just firing off hollow missives in random directions. Aimless, spent,... sad.

They think they can beat him, so the plan is to get MAGA to choose Ron over Don then go thermonuclear on Ron. He has a bright future, and a young family.

I think you are exaggerating a wee bit here. There seem to be very vocal types both in the Dem and Republican sides, and generally only the Dems seem to accept them as fairly mainstream.

After the Civil War and Presidency Grant was bankrupted by "friends" investments and was dying of throat cancer.

375 The fact is, a Republican presidential candidate MUST be beyond reproach and have no perceived issues or problems.

When Romneycare was the standard bearer they told me he was literally Hitler because he put a dog on the roof of his car, cut some kid's hair as some sort of hazing incident, and apparently has the ability to give people cancer.

When Shrub was the standard bearer they told me he was literally Hitler because he was a former alcoholic with two daugther that went drinking...underage!

And so on. No one is perfect.

They may all be anti-semitic loons, but they do seem to be non-racial, non-homophobic anti-semitic loons. Not sure how those fit together or if it even helps - but Nazis sure seem to have softened up a bit since my great Uncle fought them.

Trump agreed to meet with Kanye because they're 'friends.' They worked together during Trump's administration and Trump worked with Kanye's wife for some prison reform. It worked out.

Trump was not going to turn Kanye away regardless of who he showed up with at his door.

Sit down, this is going to be hard to hear. If your premise is correct and all the levers of power are held by the left - whether or not "we" are objectively perfect doesn't matter. The ones with the power make the rules. Also, of small note, perfection is not obtainable. This is why the old saying exists, Perfect, is the enemy of the good. You are in denial. You are in denial of the very premises you embrace. Denial is not a plan, see for example McCain and Romney.

i'm not saying Trump is a nazi, i'm saying that the argument that we shouldn't exclude "trash" must have limits, unless we're ready to just start signing up actual Nazis and open white supremacists as Republicans.

Trump himself concedes he should not have met with Fuentes. It's only some of his stronger supporters who seem to be arguing against that.

I have lost all confidence in him. He has no discipline or organizational ability. He has no internal warning light. He doesn't check things. He cannot see a single move ahead.

Apparently he dropped out of politics in 2018. He's...doing something since then to make money and hasn't been cancelled. He also claims to not be on the right any more and supported Biden in 2020.

I don't understand this comment. Is the idea that "backwoods, poor, low-status" voters are enthusiasts of a rapper who is manifestly crazy and whose body of work is frankly lackluster, a garish morally repulsive homosexual who likes to talk about his love of big black cock, and a 20-something nobody who no one has ever heard of under any circumstances and who just doubts the Holocaust but loves the Jews as all Holocaust deniers do?

I actually would put his actual anti-Semitism likelihood at high since that is the pattern. Still, Al Sharpton actually engineered the murder of a Jewish guy who had the audacity to do business in a black neighborhood. Sharpton regularly appears on the tube and at Democratic events. Conservatives have a fatal flaw of following whatever laser light the Left points and this is no different.

Trump's biggest mistake was not delivering the death blow to the controlled opposition party after 2020.

487 I like Milo. He is really, really sharp and makes good arguments. We need people like him in public life even if we don't agree with every single thing he says or does. He was cancelled and ruined so I cannot begrudge him seeking a patron.

Fuentes sounds like he is worthless and Ye is crazy.

But I think if Obama can link hands with Sharpton, who actually lead a mob to riot and seek out Jews to kill and injure in New York (to the point where Jews were cowering in their homes and were afraid to go out) and it is considered unremarkable then there is obviously something here other than concern over anti-Semitism at work.

I think it is very dangerous to condemn people for talking to others and deeming people so unclean as to make them an untouchable caste. We should all talk, if for no other reason than to convince people they are in error to hate Jews etc... All of our leaders regularly dine with people who are as bad as Fuentes or worse. Many such people serve in Congress and will have to be dealt with.

So if we are going to accept the premise that dining with someone amounts to endorsement of all of their views then we are all going to be dining alone.

That video clip is a joke alluding to the necessity for people to discuss the holocaust using coded language if they intend to divert in any way from the approved version of events. In fact, there are countries where one can be arrested for disputing the holocaust.
