If you’ve been anywhere near a television or the internet today, you’ll know three things that are positively true.
One; Justin Bieber is man enough to cry in public. Two; it IS possible for Miley Cyrus to get even crazier than we thought and Three; Kanye West plans to run for President in 2020.
If you’re choking on your afternoon coffee right now, know that you’re not alone.
At first, I was equally as flabbergasted, not because I think it’s out of the realm of possibilities, but I thought he was WAY too into himself to care about what happened to America as a whole.
But, after writing various tweets, Instagram posts and there ‘ere article, I’ve gone and changed my mind. And even though I know I’ll probably be slaughtered for this (figuratively speaking), I’m going to tell you the six reasons I think Kanye West would make a great president.
#1: He’s all about change.
You know how the world rejoiced when America declared same sex marriage legal? Kanye would go about making those kind of forward-thinking, positive changes a regular thing.
#2: He’s not so bound by red tape.
This could be seen as a bad thing, as I know people in power have to be level-headed and take all facts into consideration, but I feel like Kanye would see an issue like the gun laws and really DO something about it.
#3: He has powerful friends that can help him bring attention (and donations) to needy causes.
His besties are Jay Z and Beyonce, people who are able to bring big attention to causes that deserve it – and fast.
#4: He’s actually intelligent.
Listen to his lyrics, really listen to them – and you’ll see that he actually has many layers. He’s about positive change and religion and making the world a better place. NB: not ALL songs, but a lot (before you grab Bound 2 and tell me that’s not intelligent – I know that already.)
#5: Arnold Schwarzanegger did it – kind of.
No-one thought Arnie becoming Governor of California was a good idea, in fact – I’m pretty sure everyone laughed. But he actually didn’t do too bad of a job!
#6: The fact that he’s a celebrity isn’t a reason.
Look at guys like J.F Kennedy and even Barack Obama, they become celebrities in their own right. Kennedy was seeing actresses, Clinton had his fair share of scandals, so the fact that he’s famous and married to Kim isn’t really a card that you can play.
