Yiannopoulos most just lately worked as an intern for Republican congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, however it seems he’s now a part of West’s 2024 presidental marketing campaign.
West beforehand ran for America’s highest political workplace in 2020, however his marketing campaign was most remembered for a weird rally through which he wore a bullet proof vest and broke down crying. Of the 12 states through which his title appeared on the poll, West earned upwards of 60,000 whole votes (together with one from Tucker Carlson.)
Final month, following a collection of antisemitic outbursts, West misplaced over $1 billion in model offers and noticed his radio airplay and streaming numbers plummet.
