Kanye West is one of the biggest names in music and he is most known for his vocal ways of interrupting and disrupting events. That being said, he mentioned that he wanted to run for president in 2020 and many started laughing at the “joke” they thought he was telling.
However, the joke may be on us.
According to his wife Kim Kardashian West, he is very serious about pursuing the office of president.
“I believe he is serious,” said Kardashian. “And I know, you know, that if he puts his mind to something, he’ll do his best. Well I was joking with him, I was like, ‘You’re going to have to make it to a second term,’ because he loves redecorating. I was like, ‘You’re going to want to redo the whole White House and we’re not going to be able to enjoy it.'”
There would likely be quite a few voters that are followers of his music who would be willing to turn out in the polls for him. While they may be willing to help him in the polls, there would be very few that would actually vote to put him in office.
While West may be dominant in the music industry, he would have no chance of being a commanding leader in foreign policy or business.
That alone would practically disqualify him from any presidential race.
That being said, seeing Kanye make a run at the presidency would give us quite a bit of entertainment. He is a very vocal guy and is not shy about making bold statements and promises. West also has no conscience when it comes to others and would be a very cut-throat type of candidate.
Hey, if Donald Trump can get a shot at the Oval Office, why not Kanye?
