With the chances of Kanye West running for president in 2020 still being questioned, it looks like he’s trying to get the love of the current Commander-in-Chief. President Barack Obama added his comments on Ye’s possible run today at the Democratic National Convention Fundraiser in San Francisco. According to ABC News, Obama’s comments included:
“It couldn’t get any stranger. But in case Kanye is serious about this whole POTUS thing I do have some advice for him.”
First of all, you have to spend some time dealing with some strange characters who act like they’re on a reality TV show. You gotta be cool with that.
Second important tip: Saying you have a beautiful dark twisted fantasy — that’s what’s known as off message in politics, People have lost congressional seats that way.
And number three: Do you really think this country’s going to elect a black guy from the South Side of Chicago with a funny name to be president of the U.S.? That’s crazy. Cray.”
Kanye West was set to perform at the Fundraiser, with his wife Kim Kardashian as well as the Golden State Warriors present in the audience.
