Last night, while accepting the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the MTV Video Music Awards, Kanye West dropped a bomb on the audience, announcing that he is planning a presidential run in the year 2020. “I don’t know what I stand to lose after this, it don’t matter though, because it ain’t about me, it’s about new ideas, bro, new ideas. People with ideas, people who believe in truth,” he said during his acceptance speech. “And yes, as you probably could have guessed by this moment, I have decided in 2020 to run for president.”
Oh yeah, Kanye we totally guessed that you, someone with no previous political experience or demonstrable interest/ knowledge of civics, politics, law or government, would be running for the highest office in the land. But we ain’t mad – it seems a lack of qualifications, a recognizable name and a big mouth is all you need to get people to back your campaign. If Donald Trump and Deez Nuts can run for president, why can’t Kanye West?
Of course, once Kanye gets his presidential vision board on fleek, he’s got to come up with a slogan. The guy has a way with words, so we think he’ll have no problem conjuring a few, but just in case, we’ve got some ideas to help get those creative juices flowing. Not that the greatest presidential candidate of all time will ever need them.
