Kanye West spoke and the White House has responded.
A day after Kanye announced at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards that he will run for president in 2020, Press Secretary Josh Earnest said on Monday that he approves of the rapper’s announcement and is looking “forward to seeing what slogan he chooses to embroider on his campaign hat.”
According to the Associated Press, Earnest made the comment while traveling to Alaska aboard Air Force One with President Barack Obama. While Kanye has yet to elaborate on his bid, this isn’t the first time he’s talked politics. In fact, he previously criticized the federal government’s response to Hurricane Katrina and compared his wife Kim Kardashian’s fame to that of the First Lady.
It would be an absolute DISGRACE to have Kim Kardashian in our White House.
