By Breitbart. The campaign co-chair for Sen. Bernie Sanders slammed actress Debra Messing over her “racist” attack on Kanye West after Messing accused the Grammy-winner of trying to “take young black votes from Biden” by announcing his own presidential run.
On Saturday, Kanye West tweeted that he’s “running for president of the United States” with the aim of “unifying America.” Although West did not refer to when he planned to run, his tweet included the phrase “#2020 Vision,” suggesting it could be this year.
We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future. I am running for president of the United States 🇺🇸! #2020VISION

Messing’s comments were quickly picked up by Bernie Sanders’s spokeswoman Nina Turner, who declared her remarks “racist” as black voters are “not owned by anyone.”
“You just can’t stop dipping can you @DebraMessing?” Turner wrote. “Your connotation is racist. 1. Black voters are not owned by anyone. Our vote should be earned every election cycle. 2. We can think for ourselves & don’t need your help. 3. Sometimes it’s best to stay out of family business.”
You just can’t stop dipping can you @DebraMessing? Your connotation is racist🤬.

Kanye West Says He Is Running for President. Is That Actually Possible?
By ABC. US rapper Kanye West took to Twitter over the weekend to announce he was running for president, with his declaration quickly going viral and prompting a flurry of speculation. . .
West first raised the idea of running for president during an acceptance speech at the MTV Music Video Awards in August 2015. . .
The presidential election is on November 3, so that doesn’t leave him much time to get his name on the ballot.
He could run as an independent candidate, but the deadline for registering has passed in a handful of states, including New Mexico and North Carolina.
And getting his name on the ballot would mean he’d need to either hire staff or recruit fans as volunteers to gather tens of thousands of signatures across the nation before other registration periods close in August and September.
