But undoubtedly the craziest (i.e. most terrifying) occurrence was when Kanye West declared his 2020 presidential run.
West’s big announcement came while accepting the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award (running for president seems to be the next logical step after winning this award). And this is not a drill, people. As you can see above, West is dead fucking serious (if that whole Beck debacle taught us anything it’s that Kanye West does not make jokes).
At last, White House Press Secretary John Earnest has responded to West’s big announcement. He tells AP that he looks “forward to seeing what slogan he chooses to embroider on his campaign hat.” As do we, Earnest. As do we. Until then, all we have to go on regarding West’s presidential campaign is last night’s speech.
