UPDATE:  No policy matters have been revealed yet from Kanye West’s South Carolina rally, but he’s making waves with comments on underground railroad hero Harriet Tubman.

Wearing a bulletproof vest and appearing in front of an American flag, West went into an off-the-cuff stream on Tubman. “Harriet Tubman never actually freed the slave, she just had the slaves go work for other white people,” he told the crowd.

EARLIER: Rapper Kanye West is holding his first campaign event for his quixotic presidential campaign today in South Carolina.

The event will be held at the Exquis Event Center in North Charleston. No ticket? Don’t go, as it’s “for registered guests only.”
