There is a saying, after George W. Bush everyone can be the president. Now, there finally comes the guy who tries to verify this idea. Kanye West, the famous (or maybe infamous) star announced he was running for president in 2020 during the MTV VMAs on Sunday after admitting he’d smoked a joint before he accepted his award.
In this picture: President, Obama, and First Lady
Kanye received the lifetime achievement award and was honored by Taylor Swift with a gushing introduction. This prize has previously been won by acts including Michael and Janet Jackson, Britney Spears, U2 and George Michael.
After Kanye’s announcement, his face is pictured on Mt. Rushmore, taking the place of George Washington. But in fact, Kanye is quite a political guy. On September 2, 2005, Kanye appeared at a telethon benefit for the victims of Hurricane Katrina, and almost immediately he appeared to go off script. I hate the way they portray us in the media, if you see a black family, it says, ‘They’re looting.’ You see a white family, it says, ‘They’re looking for food.’ And you know that it’s been five days because most of the people are black. George Bush doesn’t care about black people. This bold criticism is described by Bush, the most disgusting moment of his presidency.
What a Kanye West presidency would look like in 2020.
Also, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have voiced their support for Hillary Clinton in the upcoming election.
Kanye was seen smiling as Taylor Swift took the stage to present him with his award. This smile is quite rare for a stoic star.
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian laughed together during the show on Sunday night. Or should we say the future president and first lady?
The Kardashian sisters applauded happily as Kanye took the stage to receive his award.
Kanye also commented on Obama. When asked how he felt President Obama was doing in office during a radio interview he said; ‘Man, let me tell you something about George Bush and oil money and Obama and no money. People want to say Obama can’t make these moves or he’s not executing. ‘That’s because he ain’t got those connections. Black people don’t have the same level of connections as Jewish people…We ain’t Jewish. We don’t got family that got money like that.’
Are we really into this blunt guy and going to elect him as the president? Or are we just so desperate for fun?
