Kanye West is continuing his presidential campaign with a change in his political team. He has brought back his former collaborator, Milo Yiannopoulos, as YE2024’s Director of Political Operations. Milo sent emails to Nick Fuentes and Ali Alexander, two of Ye’s political advisors, stating that their services were no longer required for any possible future campaign. Nick Fuentes, who is known for his white nationalist views, accompanied Kanye during his visit to see Donald Trump at Mar-a-Lago last year. Ali Alexander recently apologized after being accused of asking teenage boys for sexual pictures.
Milo Yiannopoulos’s Role in the Campaign
Milo confirmed that he has been in Los Angeles for the past week, discussing Kanye’s presidential aspirations. He was previously removed from the campaign team after Kanye’s controversial interview with Alex Jones, and reportedly blamed Nick and Ali for his firing. Milo’s return to the team suggests that his next mission is to determine how serious Kanye is about running for the White House.
Addressing Kanye’s Antisemitism
Milo’s return to the team also raises questions about how he will address the antisemitism that Kanye has been accused of spewing for months. Kanye’s recent theory about Jonah Hill has been criticized as ridiculous and not fitting for the campaign trail. With Milo back in the mix, it is unclear how the campaign will proceed and what changes will be made to address these controversies.
