And causes a commotion, of course. Apparently his good buddy Ye, formerly Kanye West, came to dinner at Mar-a-Lago with an uninvited guest, Nick Fuentes, whom I was not especially familiar with, but who is reputed to be, by all the correct thinkers, to be a dangerous White Supremacist. John Sexton at Haut Hair reports on Trump's dinner with Kanye and Nick Fuentes.
"Ed put parts of this story in the headlines earlier but I wanted to consolidate some of it here. The basic story is that Trump agreed to host Kanye for dinner at Mar-a-Lago and Kanye apparently brought along white supremacist Nick Fuentes. Let’s just start with this tweet from Kanye in which he says he asked Trump to be his VP."
So right off, an alarm. Ye wants The Donald to be his VP? I know he's crazy, but I thought he was a little closer to reality than that. Could Ye be trying to damage Trump to help his fantasy run? Weird, but that's Ye. William Teach at Pirate's Cove, Bad Move: Trump Dined With Horrible White Supremacist Nick Fuentes. Althouse, "Even taking at face value Mr. Trump’s protestation that he knew nothing of [Nick] Fuentes, the apparent ease with which Mr. Fuentes arrived at the home of [the] former president..." "... underscores the undisciplined, uncontrolled nature of Mr. Trump’s post-presidency just 10 days into his third campaign for the White House," citing Maggie Haberman at NYT. At Da Mail, Trump was 'very taken' with Holocaust denier Nick Fuentes and they fawned over each other during Mar-a-Lago dinner with Kanye West - but former President claims he had no idea he was a white supremacist. How does the Mail claim to know what Trump thought? Pure wish casting. Wa Ex, Trump in damage control mode after dinner with infamous white nationalist. At PM, Trump responds after Thanksgiving dinner with Kanye, uninvited guests, that turned hostile, "West alluded in his Twitter video that his party was kicked out of Mar-a-Lago. When a source close to President Trump and with knowledge of the situation was asked if that was the case, they corroborated Kanye’s story." At Twitchy, Ron Filipkowski spread a lie, claiming that Nick Fuentes now supports Ron DeSantis. The story doesn't concern me much, except as an example of poor message discipline in the Trump campaign. Nobody on the left cares when Obama or other Democrats hang around dangerous Black Supremacists and anti-Semites, hell, they even elect them to Congress.
Teach again, Democrats Pining For Trump As Republican Nominee. They made that mistake once. On the other hand, KT at Haut Hair reports Elon Musk will support DeSantis if he runs for President, which may explain Senator Markey's thuggish tweet.

Atop Da Hill, Newsom says he won’t run for president in 2024, even if Biden doesn’t seek reelection "Newsom said in an interview with Politico that he has told the White House that he is “all in” on Biden running for reelection and told Biden himself during a phone call on Election Day earlier this month. He also said he will not run for president if Biden does not run but was less firm about the 2028 election." Don't Californicate the USA. Capt. Ed at Haut Hair, Newsom to Biden: I'll wait my turn ... for you. Althouse cites Politico, "In 1976, Ronald Reagan challenged a sitting president, Gerald Ford, and four years later Jerry Brown did the same against Jimmy Carter."
"Both incumbents would lose the general election, as would George H.W. Bush in 1992, the last year a president would face a remotely serious primary. This fear of wounding your own president and only ensuring his defeat in the fall is partly the reason why primaries against incumbents have faded, and it’s certainly top of mind for younger challengers who don’t want to hurt their future prospects within the party.
