Just when you thought 2020 couldn’t get any weirder, Kanye West unexpectedly throws his Yeezy’s in the ring for the presidency! Mr. West sent shock waves across social media this weekend when he tweeted about becoming the leader of the free world, a proclaim he’s made in the past. However, as this would put the Watch The Throne rapper in opposition to his friend Donald Trump, many celebrities were left scratching their heads over his announcement.
We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future. I am running for president of the United States 🇺🇸! #2020VISION
While he garnered immediate support from his wife Kim Kardashian and Tesla CEO Elon Musk, celebrities such as Paris Hilton, Tiffany Haddish and Bob Saget mocked Kanye’s wild ambitions with their own paradoxical professions to run for president while Octavia Spencer thought he was plain ol’ foolish.
Other celebrities such as former Basketball Wivesstar Tami Roman, White House Correspondent April Ryan, former L.A. Lakers player Matt Barnes and actress Rose McGowan wondered if there is something more sinister at play.
Kanye running for President! Now I love his musical legacy and I got a few pair of Yeezy’s but…. is this an attempt to split the vote, take votes away from Biden so Trump can win again? I mean you’ve been known to wear a maga hat 🤷🏽♀️
