Kanye West Taking Over Politics

Kanye West announced that he was running for president during the VMA'S last weekend. I don't know if he actually will end up running, but since he is a very popular artist I think it will definitely get younger kids involved in politics due to his popularity with the younger generations. The election is five years away, and yes I do think he will change his mind by then. By him saying "I have decided in 2020 to run for president," is just telling us that that is his decision right now. There are no key words in his speech that guarantee us his place in the 2020 election. I myself hope that he does run for president because it would be a breathe of fresh air from the stuffy politicians who only care about themselves, not saying Kanye West wouldn't be selfish but it is better than Donald Trump or Hilary Clinton. If Kanye West became president I think all hell would break loose but I also think it would give young people a voice and open up a lot or doors for people who usually don't have a say. Even though we still need to get through the 2016 election I'm sure many people are anxious to see what happens in 2020.

  1. Although Kanye running for president would be an interesting thing to witness, I overall believe it would have a negative impact on the country. Kanye is not qualified for a such a role. Young people may be intrigued by him running but their interest is strictly based off of his music and may not reflect his political views.
