Last evening at the VMAs (Video Music Awards), Kanye West announced that he was going to be running for president in 2020.

Let’s not forget that this is the same person who, when given a national platform to raise money for Hurricane Katrina victims, spent his time telling America that George W. Bush ‘doesn’t care for black people.’ (Never mind that President Bush has spent months out of every year since his presidency in developing African nations helping the least fortunate in the world. But I digress.)

From The Guardian:

Kanye West said that he is running for president in 2020 during his acceptance speech for the MTV Music Video Award’s lifetime achievement honor.

West made the announcement at the end of a 10-minute speech where he discussed visiting the grocery store with his daughter and admitted that he does not understand awards shows.

“And yes, as you probably could’ve guessed in this moment, I’ve decided in 2020 to run for president,” West said, before walking off stage.

West famously stormed the stage at the 2009 awards to protest Taylor Swift’s win for best female video. Swift presented the Video Vanguard award to West on Sunday night and stood next to his wife Kim Kardashian during the speech.

After accepting the award on stage, West stood silently for several minutes under a spotlight while the crowd cheered for him. “Bro, bro, listen to the kids,” West began.

In his speech, West rehashed the controversy in 2009, when he took Swift’s award. He said that it is something he thinks about in the grocery store with his daughter and when a crowd of 60,000 people boo him at a baseball game.

“I think if I had to do it all again, what would I have done?” Kanye said. “Would I have worn a leather shirt? Would I have drank a half a bottle of Hennessy and given the rest to the crowd?”

One thing is sure. Kanye West will most assuredly not get my vote.

Although a West candidacy may be a good source of humor.

Here’s the video of his announcement.
