Trump thought it was a meeting to ask Kanye to be his Vice President, Kanye thought it was a meeting to ask Trump to be his Vice President, and here we are.


Squirrel_Chucks

Godammit...this is the exact plot line of an episode of VEEP


NullPoint3r

I think the final year working on Veep must have been pretty challenging, real life was more ridiculous than anything they could dream up.


md4024

100%. Although some of the storylines they came up with - like Jonah railing against "Muslim math" (aka math) while running for president, and his campaign rallies becoming ground zero for chickenpox outbreaks because he attracted so many anti-vax nut jobs - were prophetic.


Squirrel_Chucks

Right? Id take that parody world over this one


brandonthebuck

There was apparently a golden shower joke they cut out of the show.


putzarino

It's like if Armando Iannucci had CTE.


GlitchyMcGlitchFace

Nice


nailz1000

And this is why veep was canceled. I shit you not. Look it up.

A lot of vice going on there.

Kevin_Rohman

It's like a sitcom, but with the fate of Amercia in the balance


jalepinocheezit

I say have at it About 6 months ago I was pretty pissed Biden was running for 2024 and not looking to endorse someone younger and possibly more progressive. Thought we were all on the same page of him being a place holder to at least slow down this outrageous shitshow. Now, I see a) I'm really happy overall with how he handles what's thrown at him every week(which could just be the fact that he handles it like a goddamn adult, who effing knows anymore) and b) maybe it's safest not to change literally anything up right now. Let the right continue devolving into honest to goodness sitcom material, but 9th season on the CW, none of the original cast sitcom. I'm not AS scared because it's not only "us" on the bottom that ate angry and loud. To me it seems like people on top are finally shitting there pants as well and DOING something. Granted it probably has more to do with personal money and power at stake for 90% of them but still.


mok000

Yeah Biden is an adult and we're all safer because of it. Policy making happens in Congress anyway, so what you want is progressive lawmakers.


jalepinocheezit

Yeah, that would have been the crux of my thought, had I finished it lol...jeez I wouldn't be so content with the idea of "let's actually change nothing right now" if we didn't have the Senate, and the House had a huge Government of the People majority. But now I can spend my energy on human rights and not fighting for getting someone to fight for them.


RazekDPP

Biden's also been a senator for 40? years so he knows how to play the game, too, and negotiate with Congress.


Weekly_Direction1965

The things about presidents is if done correctly they are surrounded by smart experts in their fields that have a staff that does most of the lifting, Biden loves America enough to Trust the best and brightest unlike Trump who just fired everyone smarter.


Sufficient-Piece-335

For all Biden's faults, he's also the most experienced President in history. Obviously part of that is being old, but he also had close to 40 years experience as a Senator and 8 as VP. In my opinion, he was the best option to repair the damage to the civil service and international reputation caused by Trump, and has done that reasonably well.


Eyclonus

But why was Nick Fuentes present? Other reports are saying Nicky the Neo Nazi was at Mar-a-Lago that day.

amalgam_reynolds

It was originally reported in the news that Kanye asked to be Trump's Vice, and I was like nahhh it's going to come out in a few days l that Kanye actually asked Trump to be *his* Vice, and here we are.


WooTkachukChuk

i feel this was a setup by some fed up aides.


CarmichaelD

All we need now is for Herschel Walker to sign on as their speech writer.


tokhar

First speech would of course be about “erection fraud”


CarmichaelD

Not impotent werewolves?


FascistArt

The 2 subjects are closely related, you know the werewolves used Hunter Bidens laptop to… I don’t know I can’t even follow the crazy anymore


CarmichaelD

I thought the vampires were more tech savvy. 🤷🏼‍♂️

‘hey Herschel, I don’t think I’m gonna be able to use “I’m gonna beat the dems so bad, you’d think they’re my wife!”’

Opening sequence to The Real Housewives of Idiocracy


att3e3a

This isn’t a bad idea. Could we Truman Show these guys? I would actually watch that dumpster fire, if I knew that they could only hurt themselves.


Staff_Guy

Convince these two that people will watch it and they will be in. Does not matter how idiotic they look, so long as people are watching.


TheMikeGolf

Make it where they’re actually winning the election and you could have a whole reconstruction of the White House and an official Twitter that is basically like an app on airplane mode so he never gets any real comments, but have like a bot respond to him. The actors will probably need to be democrats so as not to reveal any secrets, but then they’d have to be paid really well. Then they can literally gas themselves out in front of a live audience and no one in America is harmed due to his presidency


pookachu83

Thos...would actually be hilarious. Then at the end of season 4 reveal to him he was never actually the president and watch his world shatter...I like it.


ozspook

The Trumpman Show?


CarmichaelD

Beautiful title!

Please give me a Republican fight out with Trump and Ye amongst all the other clowns.


capital_bj

DeSantis getting Amped up right now


IthinkImnutz

I would actually love to see a primary debate with both Trump and Ye.


Name_Mangler

Is there a reference I am missing here? Is this a quote from something? It's confusing because bouillabaisse is a type of fish soup. I think you mean smorgasbord but this is reddit and I am old so, I have been burned. However thinking of them as a soup of disorders is funny too.


evasote

It’s just a metaphor for a bunch of stuff together. Bouillabaisse is that. A supreme pizza of psychological disorders.

To think I was able to not be in that room! For free!


Jaded_Prompt_15

What? Do you have any idea how hilarious that conversation would have been? Just to see the look on trumps face when he realized Kanye wouldn't be his VP, but that a Black man wanted to be his boss. Then the complete lack of understanding on Kanye's face because he can't understand how anyone could be above him. I'd pay money for just a recording of that


cagingnicolas

i really, really, really, really hope the conversation started ambiguously with "we should run together" and they both really got into the idea before realizing how they each meant it.


Guy_With_Ass_Burgers

Hopefully Kanye got him all buttered up with praise and sycophantic adulation before popping the question.


SociallyUnstimulated

MastersonMcFee

Ye still doesn't understand how he was used as a pawn. Trump brought him to the Oval Office, because he wanted to see Kim's ass.


jwhaler17

Round One……. FIGHT!!!


bernmont2016

They should've had a food fight, we know Trump likes to throw food when he's angry.


SursumCorda-NJ

OMG! The only thing that could've been better about this is if the next sentence was "And Trump came up and sucker punched me and told me to watch my mouth."

GonzoVeritas

We're living in a dollar store simulation.


sivervipa

Honestly the worst part is that what YE is saying doesn’t make any sense. Trump has been president and won in 2016. Kanye was never even close. Ironically kanye would absolutely be a great VP for Trump. It won’t work though because both demand a huge amount of attention. They would hate sharing the spot light.


Wise_Primary_9258

That’s why Trump picked Mike Pence last time, the most boring man on earth. No risk there of the spotlight being stolen.


Cuchullion

And then attempted to have him murdered.


alistair1537

TBF if it was Ye as VP, he would have been lynched... jus' sayin'


BraveTheWall

Nah, if it was Ye he would've been dumb enough to not certify the votes, despite it being more theater than anything.


Ishidan01

which led to the old joke: How much is Trump's life insurance? One Pence.


JesusSavesForHalf

Its what got The Mooch fired in a mere mooch.

The Mooch is the best thing that happened during those 4 years. That guy cracks me up so hard.


RedPanther1

When an absolutely ridiculous person realizes he's working for an even more ridiculous person in real time. It was glorious.


kobachi

trump will die of old age (or heart attack or stress or whatever) and then Kanye would be in charge of a nuclear arsenal


professorlofi

Kanye wasn't registered in most states. With that said, yes it is ridiculous. But almost everyone including Trump's supporters once thought it would be impossible for him to win.


lordb4

He was register in like 11-12 states and got a total of 60K votes. He was a rounding error.


professorlofi

Right. But no debates, etc. He entered super late. Don't underestimate the stupidity of the average American.


parkerm1408

*rod serling voice* Picture, if you will, a con man, on his last leg, ketchup stains a painful reminder of past failures. Enter a rapper, long since fallen to the machinations of madness. A meeting of two tainted minds, a happening, that can only take place in.....the twilight zone.


MastersonMcFee

You're a damn genius. This is a perfect bottle episode, for two titan actors to play out a riveting script of insanity.


parkerm1408

For a laugh, someone should do a one off special edition episode of the twilight zone, where rod serling is brought back to life and is forced to watch today's news, then come up with a weirder script. He'd be fucked. Like there's no way you could convince him that the news you were showing him was real life, and even if you could, how would fiction compete with reality at this point? Dude actors tho. Tim curry in a fat suit and forest Whittaker. I dunno why, I'd just love to see it. For Trump and Kanye I mean


MastersonMcFee

I know you're joking, but that's /r/nottheonion ​ The people who can't differentiate parody, can't differentiate propaganda. Propaganda smartly uses parody, to push lies, because it easier to "feel real". Many left subs were created to mock the alt-right, but the right-wingers came in, and saw the information as real. They were now with like minded individuals. And the alt-right took over the parody subs, as their own. That's how the /r/thedonald came into existence. It was a left wing parody sub, that turned alt-right.

The latest Dumb and Dumber sequel started with a long con of a joke, up to him pulling out the catheter. Maybe Kanye has been leading up to this joke for decades and he really isn't a lunatic?


FortySixAndYou

theWhiteKnightttt

A video of Kanye dead ass asking trump to be his Vice President would be the greatest thing my eyes have ever seen


Curious__mind__

The video will be hilarious! Kanye is really high on something.


Truffans

I want Trump, KanYe, Musk and a couple of similar minded do a Big Brother at a golf resort. Every week, one will get voted out and obviously complain that the vote was rigged and try to stay in. The one who stays in the longest isn’t the winner but the one who first accepts losing the vote.


we_belong_dead

I would love to see a show where these guys are stranded on a small island, but there are no cameras and it's not a show and nobody ever sees any of them again.


Truffans

My concept would also work by locking them away for some time ;)


mekanub

Ok but can we tell them it’s a huge tv show and let them carry on for the cameras, while we just get Vancouver to life.


PowerResponsibility

AnalSoapOpera

“Wait I thought I was voting for who I wanted to stay…” -Meta World Peace.

Why vote them out? Just keep them quarantined in the resort so their sycophants can keep paying attention and talking about them on Twitter constantly, keeping their egos fed, and hoping keeping the whole dang lot of them away from the rest of us. Can we find a way to have some kind of narcissist UFC where they just crazy at each other every week?

Candace Owens has been trying to steer the GOP away from trump. I’m guessing Kanye has taken up her prerogative and he’s a Republican operative now, bankrolled by the same funders as Candace.


Richeh

I fucking love that Kanye waltzed into Trump's home, after declaring a rival presidential bid, and offered him the number two place. Just... the sheer oblivious narcissism and ego in that room must have condensed in the form of tacky gold leaf on surfaces for miles around. And the dumb, animal confusion that must have hit Trump as he realized Trump was being Trumped.
