Watch out Donald Trump and Joe Biden, there’s a new contender for this year’s presidential election, and his name is Kanye West.

On Fourth Of July, the rapper surprised a lot of us when he made the big announcement on twitter. 

“We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future. I am running for president of the United States! #2020 vision.  Tweeted West.

Kanye’s wife Kim Kardashian West showed support for her man by posting  an american flag emoji, while Tesla CEO Elon Musk was all for Kanye’s Presidential run by tweeting, “you have my full support.”

Some celebrities however are not down for Kanye taking that seat in the oval office.

Actor Octavia Spencer did not hold back while responding to Kanye’s presidential run.

“Too much foolishness today #sitallthewaydown. It’s obvious that some people live in a bubble. It’s about time to burst it. #2020vision.” Tweeted Spencer.

Comedian Tiffany Haddish threw her 2 cents in by announcing that she’ll be running for president as well with a very special running mate.

““We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future. I too am running for president of the United States…. Well this just in Dave Chappelle will be my running mate.” Tweeted Haddish. 

Comedian Jay Pharoah  got into the mix and offered  a solution if Yeezy gets elected.

“I think we should give Kanye West the AOL Free trial treatment if he gets in office. He gets 30 days , if he’s doing well after 30 we subscribe for another trial version, if he’s messing up we can subscribe to another service.” Tweeted Pharoah. 

This isn’t the first time West announced his run for presidency. In 2015, after receiving the video vanguard award at the MTV VMA’s he announced his plan for his potential 2020 run.

Also during  Fast Company’s Innovation Festival in November  West announced he would run for President in 2024. 

Only time will tell if the rapper is serious about his presidential run this time.

Afterbuzzer’s what do you think, are you for Yezzy getting into that oval office, or is this a hard pass for you?
