Kanye West tweeted false election results, claiming he had 19% of the vote in Kentucky

Kanye West was at the height of Kanye West on Tuesday night when he proudly tweeted some alleged early poll numbers that said he received 19% of the vote, or about 40,000 votes, for president in Kentucky.

His tweet, along with a celebratory video, read: "GET THE WEST WING READY !!! … this is how I felt when I saw the Kentucky result (poll)."

In addition to his social media boast, Kanye tweeted in typical Kanye fashion that running for president was the right decision after sharing these poll results.


Well, unfortunately for Kanye, those poll results were supposedly wrong.

While Kanye was actually voting in Kentucky, the news channel that the results were attributed to came up Monday night to explain that the results were fake.

โ€œThe results shown were not valid. They were just part of a test. We regret the discovery of the cached web link and have removed the data from this page. We apologize for any confusion, โ€read a tweet from LEX18News.

Nancy Cox, a reporter for the station, added that the fake results Kanye West shared were sent to "make sure the systems are working."

It's widely believed that Kanye didn't get a shot in the White House this year after failing to get multiple state ballots before the required deadline. His presidential campaign was quite a show and got off to a rocky start after a disastrous campaign event in South Carolina.

But Kanye continues to prevail and even stopped his first presidential campaign this week.

He has been heavily criticized by voters for allegedly trying to break the vote that people certainly believe will only help Trump in the elections. It was also proven that Kanye had Republican activists working his campaign.
