Chance the Rapper was the source of countless eye-rolls on Twitter recently when he endorsed his friend and collaborator Kanye West for President over Joe Biden.
And yall out here tryna convince me to vote for Biden. Smfh https://t.co/JgbGBmPQk5— Chance The Rapper (@Chance The Rapper) 1594646581.0
Even Chance's fans were frustrated, hoping he saw that logically Biden is the nation's only alternative to President Trump.
Serious question; What’s the alternative? https://t.co/RpZ6Adhh2N https://t.co/IVzOYHQ2i6— Corey🤬Reynolds (@Corey🤬Reynolds) 1594659704.0

Shortly thereafter, however, Chance doubled down on his tweet, daring someone to explain to him how Joe Biden is any different than Donald Trump.

At this point, Chance began to falter a bit, saying he understood why someone might favor Biden, but that he still thought Kanye West was a better candidate.

Twitter didn't let Chance off the hook, however.
Many people online pointed out that West has not been taking this process seriously and logistically has no path to winning the Presidency even if he was.

Chance then began to realize he may have made a mistake.
He began to backpedal.

Chance couldn't even catch a break from Terry Crews.
Lmaooo Chance the Rapper saw Terry Crews was on his side and immediately heard a record scratch.— Yip Yip with the Blip Blip (@Yip Yip with the Blip Blip) 1594674793.0

Like many before him, it seems Chance the Rapper would have been better off keeping his thoughts to himself until he had the chance to talk with some regular people.
