On Sunday, Kanye West, who has announced that he is running for president, gave an emotional speech about abortion, trashed famed abolitionist Harriet Tubman, and boasted about his IQ during a weird campaign rally in South Carolina.
The Chicago rapper had the numbers “2020” shaved into his head while wearing a bulletproof vest as he addressed the crowd, revealing that he and wife Kim Kardashian West thought-about terminating their first pregnancy, but didn’t after he had a “vision from God,” according to a livestream of the event.
He then started to cry hysterically as he said: “My mom saved my life. My dad wanted to abort me.”
West, 43, continued in tears, “I almost killed my daughter,” referring to the couple’s eldest, North West. Seriously?
“No more Plan B, Plan A,” he added.
Talking to a crowd of a couple hundred ticket-holders at the Exquis Event Center in North Charleston, the rapper later backtracked, saying that he believes abortion should be legal, but that financial incentives would discourage the practice.
“Everybody that has a baby gets a million dollars,” he said as an example.

His rambling speech also included a dig at Harriet Tubman, the underground railroad hero.
“Harriet Tubman never truly freed the slave, she just had the slaves go work for other white people,” West told the crowd.
He additionally claimed to have a 132 IQ and that: “I went to the hospital because my brain was too big for my skull.”
This was West’s first campaign event since he announced his presidential bid in a tweet on the 4th of July. The billionaire rapper and Yeezy shoe mogul said he was going to create his own party for 2020, “the Birthday Party.”
He is now actually on the presidential ballot in Oklahoma, after filing the $35,000 filing fee last week, but questions are still still up in the air over whether or not he’s really running.
West wants to collect 10,000 signatures by noon Monday to appear on the South Carolina ballot.
