That’s no slight at ‘Ye, but still, he has no experience at governing, which seems to not matter to the American public. Let’s just say he has a chance.
When it comes to social commentary, Kanye definitely has an interesting take on things. He recently was asked by the BBC about his bid for the White House and gave an answer we can all now pretty much relate to.
“When I talk about the idea of being president, I’m not saying I have any political views,” he told Annie Mac. “I don’t have views on politics, I just have a view on humanity, on people, on the (the) truth. If there is anything that I can do with my time to somehow make a difference while I’m still alive, I’m all for it.”
It sounds like he’s still up for the challenge.
Kanye West announced that he was running for president during the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards. As soon as Donald Trump was elected president over Hillary Clinton, the hashtag #Kanye2020 started circulating over the interwebs. While some were joking, others are taking his possible bid very seriously.
