Blog King, Mass Appeal
LOS ANGELES — How’s this for fireworks on Fourth of July? Grammy Award-winning artist Kanye West raised eyebrows on Independence Day when he announced he’s running for President of the United States in the 2020 election. He’s expected to run as a Republican against incumbent Donald Trump. The 43-year-old rapper tweeted his intentions late Saturday night. Kanye plans to turn America into Wakanda. “We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future,” he wrote. “I am running for president of the United States.”

Kanye is a self-made billionaire with southern roots. So, he certainly has the mazuma to fund a formidable campaign. He also has the pecuniary backing of Tesla CEO Elon Musk who tweeted his approbation in response to Kanye’s shocking presidential bid. “You have my full support!” Elon wrote.
If Kanye wins, he’ll become the second black president in U.S. history.
It also means Kim Kardashian would become the First Lady.
Does Kanye have your vote?
Will Kim continue to do her reality TV show?
Should the White House be renamed the Black Bungalow?
Share your thoughts dawg!
What’s my take?
For starters, Kanye will automatically fissure the African American vote so you could make a strong argument he’s working in cahoots with President Trump to get him re-elected. Remember, Kanye is a Republican and GOP brethren typically stick together. Should be one helluva debate this Fall.
Speaking of Trump…
During his Independence Day address from the White House, the Commander-in-Chief went postal on Democrats. He even vowed to extirpate the “radical left” who he compared to Nazis and terrorists.
“American heroes defeated the Nazis, dethroned the fascists, toppled the communists, saved American values, upheld American principles and chased down the terrorists to the very ends of the Earth,” Trump told attendees.
“We are now in the process of defeating the radical left, the Marxists, the anarchists, the agitators, the looters and people who, in many instances, have absolutely no clue what they are doing.”
For a minute, I thought he was gonna say “n*ggas” but he left that group out.
Watch Trump’s speech.
Again, share your thoughts.
