Behold your next savior, America! Appearing in the large persona of none other than Kanye (Hi, my name is Kanye and my pronoun is “ye”) West. Having finally won VMA’s Video of the Year Award, ye’s now set yis sights on yis next achievement: President of the United States. Because, why not?
“And yes, as you probably could have guessed by this moment, I have decided in 2020 to run for president.”
In his 10 minute announcement speech Ye waxed eloquently about his regrets over his previous bad behavior the time Taylor Swift won the award that he felt rightly belonged to Beyoncé. He seemed truly repentant for that Hennessey-fueled rant which turned him into a bit of a pariah; scorned and reviled by millions of fans. It ultimately resulted in our sitting Savior and President calling Ye “an a**hole.” Boy, that hurt! Yeezy carries the wounds to this day, as he explained in his acceptance/announcement speech.
“Sometimes I feel like that I died for artists to be able to have an opinion after they were successful.” [ed. remember, Ye’s first big album was titled “College Dropout”]
“I don't understand how they get five people…to come, stand on a carpet and for the first time in their life, be judged on the chopping block and have the opportunity to be considered a loser. I don't understand it, bro!…I just wanted people to like me more.”
Well dang, isn’t that what everybody wants? Butt given that feeding his ego is his highest priority, I’m not sure Ye’s going to enjoy presidential politics all that much either. On the campaign trail not everyone gets a trophy for participation. And in recent memory, only our first Great (black) Savior enjoyed that type of blind adulation, sycophancy, tears and fainting women…ah yes, those were heady days.
Butt bad news, Ye, I knew the Won, and you sir - as big an a**hole as you can be - are no Won.
Anyway, I for one can’t wait for the 2020 match-up.
Welcome to the 2020 presidential popularity contest; please check your privilege at the door. This one’s going to be too close to call, it could all come down to to which pronoun is currently in favor. And whether America is really ready for another Kardashian president.
