Just when we thought climate change would be the harbinger of the end of the world, Kanye West has swooped in and proved that, in fact, it may be he himself that beats global warming to the punch.
Appearing at the fifth annual Fast Company Innovation Festival in New York, West confirmed he intends to run for President of the United States in the 2024 election.
Here we go again, Kanye West has confirmed he intends to run for President of the United States in the 2024 election. R.I.P. World.
“When I run for President in 2024,” he said, to an audience erupting with laughter. “What y’all laughing at? We would create so many jobs! I’m not going to run, I’m going to walk. When you see headlines saying Kanye’s crazy – one in three African Americans are in jail and all the celebrities are in jail also because they can’t say nothing, they got no opinion, they’re so scared!”
It was during this same appearance in which he also said he’s considering changing his name to Christian Genius Billionaire Kanye West.
Weekday morning news show Fox & Friends (Donald Trump’s personal favourite) has now endorsed West’s potential candidacy.
“His new record, it is unbelievable. It’s great. The messages are beautiful. He’s a strong Christian. He’d get the support of the black community,” described host Ainsley Earhardt. ” When our current president announced that he was running, a lot of people laughed too.”
“He’s a free thinker,” added Pete Hegseth. “People like him who have been liberated by the president, to think more freely, ask the big questions that aren’t being asked, and be aggressive about it.”
This is not the first time the rapper has expressed his desire to run in the 2024 election. His recent actions seem, scarily, to back up these intentions. This includes lunching with Trump at the Oval Office and wearing a red MAGA hat, becoming a born-again Christian and releasing a Jesus-praising gospel album, as well as announcing his intention to manufacture his Yeezy apparel only in American factories.
He has also begun espousing conservative talking points during interviews, like in this recent conversation on BigBoyTv, where West spoke of the Democrats’ “brainwashing” of African Americans.
“We’re [black Americans] brainwashed out here, bro. Come on, man,” Kanye described. “This is a free man talking. Democrats had us voting [for] Democrats with food stamps for years. What are you talking about? Guns in the Eighties, taking the fathers out the home, Plan B, lowering our votes, making us abort our children… Thou shall not kill.”
