Kanye West is reportedly enlisting the help of alt-right provocateur and intern to U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, Milo Yiannopoulos, to help him run for president in 2024.

As reported by Newsweek, Ye introduced Yiannopulous to paparazzi over the weekend as someone who is "working on the campaign." Whether he was talking about his seemingly ongoing campaign to be the most disliked man in entertainment wasn't clear, until he clarified that he was indeed running for president.

"Yes... It's simple.... It's just we're moving toward the future," he said.

Ye has had a little bit of a dangerous love affair lately with right-wing political figures. Yiannopoulos is a former Breitbart writer known for his hateful stances on everything from Islam, feminism, and the LGBTQ+ community, to his associations neo-Nazi and antisemitic figures. To add insult to industry, Yiannopoulos identifies as gay.

Just when it seemed that the world was finally rid of Yiannopoulos, after he was fired from Brietbart and lost a book deal after a video circulated in which he appeared to condone pedophilia, he is seemingly back and thirsty for any attention he can get.

Last month, after a series of antisemitic outbursts, West reportedly lost over $1 billion in brand deals.
