I think Treverus was implying that it wasn't the hilly billy vote that swept Obama into power.
I think a good way of looking at it is:

- Obama is black, smart, and charismatic and ran against a useless opponent (twice). Man, I miss him.

- Trump is white, stupid, and charismatic and ran against the worst opponent ever (and, even then, only just scraped in). Plus point is he's comedy gold. If we don't all die hideously in a nuclear conflagration, it won't have so bad. (I'll miss the daily LOLs, at least.)

- Kanye is black and stupid (nobody really cares how charismatic he is) and definitely not funny (unless he's in a South Park episode). Only chance he'd have is if the Democrats put up the worst opponent ever against him. They wouldn't, would they...?

They can put up Hillary again.

(I think she'd have won if she would not have shown so muck weakness/illness but would have appeared as a fit and strong woman, not many people like a president who looks like she is collapsing every moment.)

Amerika baffles me, surely there are smart and healthy people at positions that make them fit to run for their party, but almost every election the joke gets bigger and bigger.

No. The guy's a jerk.
Yes because of Dunning-Kruger and a lack of self-awareness

Simple really Amerika is controlled by the military-industrial-intelligence-media-Jewish complex and is funded by the taxpayer who think they are doing their patriotic duty. Now get a clown in the white house who on one side is telling the rubes what they want to hear and on the other causes such controversy that you get a country that is quasi at war with it´s self and unable to see what is happening.
Or as Herman Göring once said: "Naturally, the common people don't want war ... but after all it is the leaders of a country who determine the policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in every country."

Obama was white
No, but Obama was intelligent, educated and what most people forget - a career politician with a more than credible track record. Because unlike Trump do most people have to work hard for their political successes...

Kanye is a very creative music producer, but the only way to get voted without having the competence and experience is some extreme charisma... people like Wyclef Jean or Vitali Klitschko had it. He simply does not. There is very little he stands for except of being broke and publicly asking Zuckerberg for 50 millions to cover his debt...

Hillary was nominated because she is from a political dynasty and because they felt she was entitled to be president. They nominated Bernie to run against her, knowing full well he was unelectable but to be able to pretend they were offering people a choice. Things started going wrong when Bernie unexpectedly stopped talking like a professor and actually mounted a far stronger and more credible campaign than anybody was expecting and started to look as if he could genuinely hurt Hillary.

Nope, that would expect he makes his choice. He does not. He is being promoted by policy which he happens to suit. Will give him unearned stardom for a while, which he told himself he needs when he started being productive. It is not about him at all but about what he can symbolize in said policy that seems to be shutting people's ratio and milking their need to invest their empathy at some place. Dunning-Kruger is a fab cognitive trick. Inflated ego only helps but these matters aren't concerning cognition, ego mostly. Of all of us. Empathy and ego works tightly together.
