First Lady Kim Kardashian-West? It may actually be a possibility.
During an appearance at the 2019 Fast Company Innovation Festival where he discussed the expansion of his Yeezy brand and his business acumen, Kanye West revealed some plans about a potential dive into politics.
Kanye was addressing the crowd when he said his business strategy with Yeezy could lead to a successful 2024 presidential campaign.
The crowd didn’t take him seriously, but Kanye seemed to be serious about a potential run for the White House.
“When I run for president in 2024… What y’all laughing at? When I run for president in 2024, we would create so many jobs that I’m not going to run, I’m going to walk,” Kanye told the crowd, as transcribed by Complex. “What I’m saying is, when y’all read headlines—’Kanye’s crazy,’ this and that—one in three African Americans are in jail and all the celebrities are in jail also ’cause they can’t say nothing, they got no opinion, they’re so scared!”
Kanye’s comments begin around the 24:30 mark.
That would mean we would get First Lady Kim Kardashian-West.
And if the Kardashian klan’s actions in the past are any indication, we would potentially be in for four of the most exciting seasons of Keeping Up With The Kardashians to date. And hey, after Kanye’s switch from hip hop to gospel, you’d have to believe he has the angelical vote locked up.
