Kanye West for president is no publicity stunt, says the would-be candidate's wife, Kim Kardashian. The reality mogul tells Ellen DeGeneres that her husband is dead serious about his 2020 presidential run.
"I believe he is serious," she says. "If he puts his mind to something, he'll do his best." His announcement to run, which he made during the MTV VMAs, came as a total surprise to Kardashian. "That wasn't a discussion in our household," she says. Still, she's down to campaign for Kanye and says it would be "fun" to be first lady.
Well, Kanye already has a co-sign from 2016-hopeful Ben Carson and will be performing at a Democratic fundraiser next month, so it seems the tracks are being laid for a bid. Now, he just needs to figure out which party he wants to represent.
