Jamie Kilstein: Kanye Wanting to Run for President Not As ‘Eccentric’ as ‘Invading the Middle East’

Citizen Radio co-host, comedian, and “#NEWSFAIL” author Jamie Kilstein said that Kanye West declaring, “George Bush doesn’t care about black people” was “a great moment,” and “invading the Middle East is more eccentric than Kanye wanting to run for president” on Saturday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Melissa Harris-Perry.”

Kilstein argued Kanye’s comments about Bush was the lowest point for Bush because “Kanye made him feel like a racist, because he’s a racist.”

Kilstein continued, “The thing is we all go after Kanye as being crazy and being eccentric. It’s like, yo, look at every president we’ve had. I think invading the Middle East is more eccentric than Kanye wanting to run for president. And that was a great moment. And you know what? He took a lot of blowback for that. I mean, Kanye talks about that, he went into hiding essentially, after that moment. That was a very — that move that he pulled was braver than what a lot of politicians do.”
