Kanye West Announces He's Running for President & We Aren't Sure Whether to Laugh or Cry

kanye west presidentFirst Lady Kim Kardashian? In a rather bizarre speech at the MTV VMAs, Kanye West announced he's running for president in 2020. After going on and on about that time he grabbed the microphone from Taylor Swift on stage, and, well, not really sure what else he was talking about, West concluded his soliloquy with, "I’ve decided in 2020 to run for president!" Oh. OK. 


Kanye West is a legitimately talented man, and we all know how much he loves himself, but leader of the free world? Really? Kanye certainly knows a lot about sneakers and leather pants and music, but does he know about foreign policy? It might be time to bone up.

To be honest, I think this actually was just a stunt on West's behalf. He can't possibly be that delusional where he thinks he can run for office, right? And not just any office, the office. Dear God, I certainly hope not. 

We can always count on Kanye to do something completely bizarre and unexpected at these types of events, so it's not totally shocking that he dropped a bomb like this. But, let's all hope he's kidding, because he's out of his f*cking mind if he thinks he can become president.

Hey, Kanye, you're cool and all, but please don't forget that our current president called you a jackass -- more than once. Food for thought.
