Kanye West’s campaign to become US President -which has 0 percent chance of success- keeps trudging along.
And comedian Conan O’Brien appeared to mock the doomed political tilt on Tuesday, when he took to Instagram to show himself voting in the 2020 election.
The caption read, ‘“Just dropped off my ballot. Good luck, Kanye!” – Conan’.
Laughable: Conan O’Brien appeared to mock Kanye West’s doomed political tilt on Tuesday, when he took to Instagram to show himself voting in the 2020 election
The late night host’s comment was no doubt tongue-in-cheek given O’Brien is a registered Democrat who has voted for his party’s nominee in every presidential election since 1984, when he voted for Walter Mondale.
However the stand up’s comedy is strictly apolitical, with Conan telling Variety in 2019, ‘I have strong political views and things that i’m passionate about but I choose not to go that way.’
‘I don’t think I was put here to tell people passionately what I think politically.’
Meanwhile the target of Tuesday’s zinger has so far only managed to get himself on the ballot in 12 states so far, which would get West nowhere near the 270 electoral college votes he’d need to become president.

Kim Kardashian would not reveal who she will be voting for in the 2020 US presidential election while talking politics on during her appearance on My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman.
Letterman pressed the aspiring lawyer over her candidate of choice while touching on her decision to work with President Trump during several of her criminal justice reform projects.
Though the iconic interviewer, 73, criticized the Commander In Chief several times, Kardashian, 39, deftly avoided having to say anything negative about Trump.
There was no mention of husband Kanye West’s presidential aspirations, as the interview took place earlier in 2020, long before West launched his campaign in July.

‘I know who I’m voting for,’ Kim told David with a smile, per the Daily Beast, refusing to say anything more than that.
Though Kardashian seemed to be confident she had made her choice, the interview was filmed around the start of the year – months before COVID-19, lock downs and widespread social unrest threw the country into disarray.
The chat was also months ahead of Kanye West’s announced his ambition to be President.
Elsewhere in the interview, Letterman prodded the Skims creator to denounce the President.
Despite Letterman’s goading, the mogul would not disavow the President Trump, whom she persuaded to grant several clemencies from 2018 on.
Keeping positive: She also was generous in her comments about President Donald Trump saying she’s ‘extremely grateful’ she was able to work with him during her criminal justice reform advocacy. Kim is seen with Trump at the White House in 2019 above

Keeping neutral, she told David: ‘Hopefully, for the next multiple administrations, I’ll be working with the White House, helping them with clemencies.’
David noted that, unlike Trump, Kim’s ‘good work is overwhelming.’
‘It’s a positive force that diminishes what I consider to be unacceptable behavior by the president,’ Letterman added.
Kim didn’t take the bait, expertly maneuvering around the question, unwilling to critique the current president of the United States.
She went on saying she was willing to listen to David’s perspective on the Trump administration.
Diplomatic: Keeping neutral, she told David: ‘Hopefully, for the next multiple administrations, I’ll be working with the White House, helping them with clemencies’
Not cutting it: ‘I’m grateful for what you’re doing, but it doesn’t make me feel any better about the current administration,’ explained David. It was something Kim said she totally ‘understands’
He asked Kardashian: ‘But do you feel that what is being done on behalf of sentencing reform now via this current administration in any way allows the balance of democracy back in a corridor of viability?’
To which Kim replied with a smile: ‘Well, I have no idea what you just said.’
‘I’m grateful for what you’re doing, but it doesn’t make me feel any better about the current administration,’ explained David.
Diplomatically, Kim said that is something she totally ‘understands.’
Frequent visitor: Kim also revealed how people told her visiting the White House would tarnish her reputation. She has been a guest of President Trump several times since 2018

While Kardashian steered clear of most Trump controversy, she did go on to express that she is ‘extremely grateful’ for the current administration’s part in working towards criminal justice reform.
Kim also revealed how people told her visiting the White House would tarnish her reputation. She has been a guest of President Trump several times since 2018.
‘Trust me, everyone called me and said, “Don’t you dare step foot in that White House or your reputation is done,”‘ claimed Kim. ‘And I said, “I have to step foot in there or these people’s lives don’t have a chance.”‘
Though Kim wasn’t publicly aligning herself with anyone, she has a history of voting blue. In 2016 she endorsed Hilary Clinton in her bid against President Trump.
