The Kanye West presidential campaign continues to perplex and confound the electorate, if not keep it entertained, with his often indecipherable Twitter outbursts.

West, 43, set the social media platform ablaze when he compared himself to one of the most revered slave abolitionists ever, Nat Turner, all while brusquely commanding that J. Cole, 35, and Drake, 33, apologize to him.

“I’m not putting no more music out till I’m done with my contract with Sony and Universal. On God … in Jesus name … come and get me,” he wrote before he, again, later deleted the thought.

“My bad I meant Shawn … no disrespect to my big bro,” a contrite Kanye tweeted before he deleted that Twitter post as well.

According to Variety, Kanye also demanded that all Black people get with him because of his deep pockets, but later deleted it out of shame:

“I’m the 2nd richest black man in America … I need all my people with me for us to get free,” Kanye penned according to Variety, then cleaned it up later with this thought:

But the fact that Mr. Kim Kardashian had the gall to compare himself to larger-than-life historical figures irked social media users to no end, and they came after him. Check out their comments on the next page.
