So Kanye West wants to run for President of the United States in 2020.
Obviously the superstar made the announcement on stage at the VMAs, and admitted that he had smoked a joint before the ceremony, so quite how serious he was being remains to be seen.
That being said, Kanye isn’t exactly short on confidence, so you can imagine him actually thinking he could be the leader of the USA – it would probably be worth him running to see him lose and storm the stage when the eventual winner was elected.
Obviously the internet reacted in style to the announcement.
Kanye For President.
