Harris Faulkner: Kanye West’s presidential bid can’t be ignored by either party

Kanye West’s bizarre behavior has made it easy to write off his White House bid as a political sideshow. But Fox News’ Harris Faulkner said Democrats and Republicans would be foolish to ignore his campaign.


“Democrats cannot ignore him because he could split the vote,” she told us, especially since race is so front and center right now. “No one can ignore a black candidate, even though they may think whatever they think about Kanye,” she said.


“They kind of have to keep an eye on him because he’s going to pop up on the ballot in certain places and they better hope it’s not in a swing state.”


And with West being a former political pal to President Trump who’s now going his own way, the GOP “can’t ignore him either,” Faulkner said.
