Close your eyes, and just for a second, imagine Kanye West as the leader of the free world. Isn't it beautiful? What a world that would be.
Well, it might actually exist in four short years, because in an epic mid-concert rant, Kanye claimed he would be running for president in 2020. He also dropped a hint on his policy direction, saying that he didn't vote, but if he had, it would have been for Trump.
We don't get it, either.

Sure, both Kanye and Trump enjoy Twitter way too much, and they're both big celebrities, but what else unites them? Remember, this is the Kanye West who said that George Bush doesn't care about black people on live TV.
It seems like he had a lot of thoughts.

Kanye is talking about how Trump is the president of the free world, and that everyone needs to ask more questions & not to trust the net— Raptor (@RaptorJesuss) November 18, 2016
Kanye just said he thinks he'll have the experience in 2020 to run for office, I'm dead serious, Kanye just said he's preparing for 2020.— Raptor (@RaptorJesuss) November 18, 2016
There it is, people. This is happening.
Kanye admitted he didn't vote in 2016, but says he is concerned with how to become a different type of president in 2020 if nobody else does— Raptor (@RaptorJesuss) November 18, 2016
Kanye just stopped Jesus Walks, talking about how Trump is a genius.— Raptor (@RaptorJesuss) November 18, 2016
Kanye then says "Neither candidate would fix racism in this country" Walks off stage, end of concert. WOW.— Raptor (@RaptorJesuss) November 18, 2016
Now, Kanye has said a lot of things that he hasn't followed through on. But in a world that has gone this mad, why not President Kanye? Seriously, WHY THE FUCK NOT? Nothing matters anyway.
Get used to it.
