We can see Kanye West's campaign now...
Kanye West made headlines — yet again — when he got political on Thursday during a concert at San Jose, California’s, SAP Center — revealing that if he had bothered to vote he would have cast his ballot for Donald Trump.
West, 39, heard boos from the crowd after the admission, and continued his concert rant, addressing racism, women’s rights, the Black Lives Matter movement and even Dave Chappelle.
“Black people, stop focusing on racism. This world is racist, okay? Let’s stop being distracted to focus on that as much. It’s just a f—— fact. We are in a racist country. Period,” he said. He added that voting for Trump does not mean that “I don’t think that black lives matter; that don’t mean I don’t believe in women’s rights; that don’t mean that I don’t believe in gay marriage.”
West famously announced that he’d run for president in the year 2020. And with his latest rant and past attention-grabbing moves, here’s what we imagine his presidential campaign would look like:
It Would Be Very Trump-Like
During Thursday’s concert, the “All Falls Down” rapper praised Trump’s campaign “approach.”
“When I talked about our president’s approach to the campaign … I don’t think his approach was just entertaining, because that trivializes it,” he said. “I actually think that his approach was absolutely genius because it f——worked.”
Could we expect the rapper to take a page out of Trump’s book?
There Will Be Twitter Rants — and Lots of ‘Em
West is notorious for his rants on the popular social media site. Although one of his most recent tweets saw the rapper reveal that he got rid of his phone so he could “have air to create,” his Twitter rants of the past have secured West a constant association with the site.
He’ll Be Vocal About His Pro-Beyoncé Stance
We all remember it like it was yesterday. The “I’mma let you finish” is still fresh in our minds.
The “Fade” rapper made his love for the Queen Bey known when he interrupted Taylor Swift‘s acceptance speech at the 2009 MTV Video Music awards to declare that Beyoncé had “one of the best videos of all time.”
As any Queen Bey fan, West was not shy about his love of her work. And we imagine that in his 2020 campaign, he’ll keep the Bey praise coming.
His Entire Staff Will Wear Yeezy
Well, what else would they wear?
His Family Will Campaign for Him with (You Guessed it) Selfies
We can see it now: Kim Kardashian West in a “Pablo for President” fur, Kylie Jenner flaunting her “Pablo Pink” lip kit color and Khloé Kardashian posing in a pair of Good American jeans with “Kanye 4 Prez” printed on the back.
The Kardashian-Jenner clan have dominated social media with the help of their always-on-point selfie game. So, it’s only natural that they lend their expertise to Yeezy’s campaign, right?
