BWAAHAHAHAHHAHAHA.......

Yeah, sure...why not?

The bar has been set so low by Trump it sounds totally reasnable.

20 ( +25 / -5 )

I'd vote for Kayne before I'd vote for any current Dem candidate for Pres.

-27 ( +5 / -32 )

You can see why he might think he can be President. He sure sounds like the current guy...

Ego...

"For the greatest artist in human existence to put a red hat on was God's practical joke to all liberals."

Veiled and incomprehensible threats...

"There will be a time when I will be the president of the U.S., and I will remember... any founder that didn't have the capacity to understand culturally what we were doing."

And also why some US and world citizens might respond pretty much the same as we did with Donald Trump...

'No! Not Kanye!'"

9 ( +11 / -2 )

i don't see why not, he is definitely on same or higher intelligence level than most of US citizens and richer than most of them... he can atleast read ... so yea quite plausible.

Coming from the successful music producer / IT security expert. LOL!

I love that he has the hootspa to fly in the face of jaundiced PC culture.

Go for it Kanye- might be an improvement from what we have seen in the last 4 presidents !

After Trump's election, there is a fear in the US that President Kanye West and First Lady Kim Kardashian is not impossible.

8 ( +9 / -1 )

Wouldn't be surprising...

3 ( +3 / -0 )

OMG the guy has no clue. And anyone in America that would really vote for him also have zero idea.

Such an occurrence would signal the end of America. The world would just ignore it completely an probably make New Zealand the new world leader.

The US is already the butt of the worlds jokes but West as president would be the only thing to get Trump from being the worst ever US president.

American jokes are getting worse by the day.

Kanye groovin' in the Oval Office!? Does this mean after Trump "le deluge"? As old Benjamin Franklin warned his fellow-countrymen in the newly independent United States: it's “A RepublicIf You Can Keep It”. (Yeah, Yeah, Yeah!)

3 ( +4 / -1 )

He's 42, he can run at any time. Not news.

Kane stay in your meds

We are already seeing what is happening in the Oval Office with Trump who lacks political and diplomatic skills and experience. Better he keeps his finger on the recording button than the nuclear one.

Same here with the exception of Tulsi Gabbard and John Delaney.

As a Christian, I hate to jump on the Kanye bandwagon until we know this is really genuine and not a PR ploy like his wife is known to do. But whatever his motives, it seems like he has a positive message for today's youth. So many artists are out there promoting sex, booze, rebellion, drugs, etc. It's refreshing to see someone standing up for what is right and even admitting his own struggles in the past. That is not easy to do and it gives me some hope that his conversion might be genuine. Time will tell. Celebrities can often fall hard because they are so much in the public eye and there will be people out there who want him to fall so he will have to on guard. Anyway, I'm anxious to hear his new album.

-8 ( +1 / -9 )

So let me get this straight.

Many people think its impossible for Kanye West to get elected when we have elected a reality show host as president, a body builder/action star that had no real speaking parts as governor, and a wrestler as governor. The only thing that would separate Kanye from that category is his skin color. In case you don't know who I am speaking about I am referring to Donald Trump, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Jesse Ventura respectively.

Kanye can win a presidential election. Same way Trump won. All you need is a voters that are heavily divided and party that is heavily insistent upon pushing the wrong candidate regardless of how much evidence there is to go with a different candidate.

Rapper Kanye West on Thursday said he one day would helm the Oval Office

I think I saw that movie already: Idiocracy

11 ( +11 / -0 )

idiocracy is USA for the last 50years... Kanye would be hardly any different ... tbh, they should just make all those top posts lottery based with a month or two duration... so that anyone can be a president a while.

-2 ( +4 / -6 )

Yes i would also vote for Kanye over any 2020 Dem. John Delaney is actually not bad though. Wonder how long before he is a Russian asset too.

-9 ( +1 / -10 )

...and pigs just flew over my house...

3 ( +4 / -1 )

"tbh, they should just make all those top posts lottery based with a month or two duration... so that anyone can be a president a while." Actually, Israel, Italy, Japan, Greece, Spain, Korea, Pakistan and most of the countries in Africa have had more gevernments in the past 50 years than the US.., Why don't you think before you post?

1 ( +3 / -2 )

And people wonder why most brightly educated Americans are leaving the US, turning in passports and renouncing their citizenship. As much as I would be against Hillary, and I really expect the backlash, I would take Hillary over this thing.

Some people drown themselves in drugs, and I drown myself in my addiction: sex," West said, explaining he discovered pornography at a young age and became addicted to sex after his mother died in 2007.

He can't beat that addiction if he married a woman that slept with half of the American rappers and ball players.

But as a business man, at least better than a nothing but talking and smiling politician breaking promise after promise.

Better he keeps his finger on the recording button than the nuclear one.

Naw, he’s probably having a new album coming out. I think he knows liberals will take his trolling bait as serious. The guy is a genius. Lol

Naw you would be spouting the 180 deg opposite if was a Biden or Clinton supporter.

You mean like president Obama who achieved a greater fall in the unemployment rates and black unemployment rates than so far than by Trump who has managed to add $2 trillion to the national debt and will become the first president to take the national debt over the ¥30 trillion ceilings.

5 ( +6 / -1 )

Well, If the stupid republicans elected Trump, anybody could be president..

Nope, I would not.

Not at all

-5 ( +0 / -5 )

I remember the days when Trump supporters were slamming Obama for his lack of political experience, slamming celebs supporting politicians and were screaming about out of control spending.

Now they like lack of political experience, support celebs who support Trump and don’t see the debt as a problem.

They change with the wind. It’s like trying to nail jelly to a wall.

Plain unprincipled.

Thank you for getting that wall built and for getting Mexico to pay for it Mr President! Especially that part along the southern border - you know, in Colorado...

We don't even mind that an eight year old can climb over it...

Better he keeps his finger on the recording button than the nuclear one.

The only thing this Moron and pervert has his hands on are women's genitals and a golf club...

Trump does hold the record for the longest government shut down in history.

Today, he stated that he's the only president since George Washington to donate his president salary.

An incorrect fact.

Hoover never collected his salary and donated it has did JFK who also donated his salary

Most of what Trump says is not true.

West also said he would one day be commander-in-chief: "There will be a time when I will be the president of the U.S., and I will remember... any founder that didn't have the capacity to understand culturally what we were doing." It was unclear to whom the artist was referring.

Depends which one of his personalities took control at the time to answer that question.

Liberals tend to do that.....a lot.

Yeah, but the Dems did enough of their own shut downs.

I've seen an editorial cartoon where Kid Rock gets to be the next POTUS. Is this what we really want? Traitor Unqualified Trump has made the Presidency a dictatorial monarchy and a JOKE.

No, or like idiots like Cynthia Nixon and Ashley Judd muddling up the waters.

No, Democrats have successfully and burned the Constitution

Kanye is completely without care re the industry, media and lefties. Pro Trump AND a christian. Hes seen through the Dems bs. Dangerous.

-3 ( +0 / -3 )

Loved that album he put out some years back My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Perhaps this is another fantasy?

I think he's lost the plot but hey, so many people in the public light do. A certain Mancunian who touched the hearts of a generation is now repulsing us decades later.

Pro Trump AND a christian. Hes seen through the Dems bs. Dangerous.

I've spoken to some actual Christians about Trump. They are horrified by the hypocrisy of evangelicals in siding with such an immoral criminal.
