There are quite a few questionable moments that took place during this year’s 2015 MTV Video Music Awards. However, it’s safe to say that the most confusing– and oddly captivating– moment happened when Kanye West announced he would be running for President of the United States in 2020.
While few doubt ‘Ye’s intellectual capabilities, many were struck as to whether the announcement was sincere, or a strange joke.
“I don’t know what I’m finna lose after this,” West said. “It don’t matter, though; It’s not about me. It’s about ideas. New ideas. People with ideas. People who believe in truth. And yes, as you probably could’ve guessed by this moment, I have decided in 2020 to run for president.”
Voters won’t know just how serious Mr. West’s candidacy is until 2020 draws closer. But, what cannot be denied is if Kanye were to take office, he would make history in a way that that is rivaled by previous office holders. While a few candidates with little to no political experience have put their hats in the ring, one cannot help but marvel at the amusing changes Kanye West would bring to the White House– if he were elected.
