It was the most bro-filled presidential announcement speech in American history.
While accepting the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award Sunday night at the MTV Video Music Awards, Kanye West announced he is seeking the presidency in 2020, because obviously that's the next logical step for the self-described "creative genius" and husband to Kim Kardashian.
"I don’t know what I finna lose after this," West said, in closing. "It don’t matter though, because it’s not about me. It’s about ideas, bruh, new ideas, people with ideas, people who believe in truth. And yes, as you probably could have guessed by this moment, I have decided in 2020, to run for president.”
This was just moments after West admitted, "I’m not a politician, bruh!" So, uh, Yeezy 2020?
In other words, we're still five years away, but the 2020 election cycle is already looking to be as entertaining as the current one. Beat that, Donald Trump!
