The South Carolina “presidential” rally and late-night tweets show a man in the midst of a crisis—and terrifyingly alone.
Kanye West was in tears. After pleading for George Soros to call him and questioning the legacy of Harriet Tubman, the musical maestro-turned-entrepreneur’s kick-off speech to his “presidential campaign” in South Carolina took a turn for the worrisome as West tackled the topic of abortion. He did so via a personal story about his famous wife, Kim Kardashian West—specifically, the time they learned she’d become pregnant.

“My Dad wanted to abort me! My Mom saved my life! There would have been no Kanye West…” he wailed, as a sea of iPhones trained on him, cameras rolling, hands clapping. “I almost killed my daughter! I almost killed my daughter!”
