With Donald Trumpet causing the biggest political/PR sensation by attempting to run in next year’s presidential election, it’s easy to see why some other inflated egos could feel like they have a legitimate chance at being POTUS.
At the VMA’s earlier this year Kanye West announced that he was going to be throwing his hat into the ring and running for president in 2020. And as Obama starts to come around the final corner of his eight year presidency he has offered some words of advice to Kanye should he come good on his pledge to run.
“First of all,” said President Obama, who was addressing Democratic party donors in San Francisco, “you’ve got to spend a lot of time dealing with some strange characters who behave like they’re on a reality TV show,” an apparent dig at the GOP, Trump and the Kardashians.
He continued: “Do you really think that this country is going to elect a black guy from the South Side of Chicago with a funny name to be President of the United States? … That is crazy. That’s cray!”
Ronald Reagan was elected to office in 1981 having previously been known as a cowboy in Western movies, so it could happen. Kanye enjoys an enormous fan base and certainly has the funds to be able to make a push happen, but whether or not he has what it takes to become ‘Peezy’ or not would remain to be seen.
We’re thinking probably not…
