Kanye West shocked the world a month ago when he declared that he would be running for president in 2020.
While it was considered a spur of the moment, emotional "joke" by some, many are taking West serious. One of the most important people to take his announcement in stride is our current POTUS Barack Obama.
During the Democratic National Committee fundraiser yesterday, Obama used the event as a platform to drop some knowledge about being POTUS.
Obama kept it real and told it like it is:
"First of all, you got to spend a lot of time dealing with some strange characters who behave like they’re on a reality TV show… Second important tip: Saying that you have a beautiful dark twisted fantasy? That’s what’s known as off-message in politics. You can’t say something like that. A lot of people have lost their congressional seats saying things like that… And number three: Do you really think that this country is going to elect a black guy from the South Side of Chicago with a funny name to be president? That’s cray."
Gotta love Obama man. I wish we could get another 4 years out of him in office.
