Kanye West revealed his intention of running for president in 2020 earlier this week, during his acceptance speech at the VMA‘s. And of course, after his announcement, it was almost impossible for the media not to comment on it, or ask other celebrities to do so. Even the White House has responded to it, as Josh Earnest, the White House Press Secretary, looks “forward to seeing what slogan he chooses to embroider on his campaign hat”.
Rihanna, who was also asked for her point of view, seemed to take West’s announcement more seriously, saying to Entertainment Weekly “People are voting for [Donald] Trump; who wouldn’t vote for Kanye?” and “I’m really, really elated with his speech. His speech was incredible”. She has a point, but seriously who can picture Kanye as the President and Kim as the First Lady?
