Every few months, the mega rap star manages to grab headlines for completely non-music related reasons. And the latest is his bid for presidency in 2020. During what Kanye would deem a “stream of consciousness,” he took the MTV Video Music Awards stage on Sunday night (Aug. 30) to accept MTV’s Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. In an unfiltered and barely censored acceptance speech he spoke on fresh juice, getting booed by 60,000 people at baseball games and ended with saying he wants to become the leader of the free world come 2020. He didn’t even crack a smile as he dropped the mic and walked back to his seat, which left the internet wondering, “What if?”
As with any other polarizing moments in pop culture, Twitter and Instagram went to work creating the most hilarious memes ever.
