President Obama has sort of thrown his support behind Kanye West.
With the rapper seemingly serious about a Presidential run in 2020, the current Commander-in-Chief gave a speech at a fundraiser in San Francisco during which Kanye was set to perform.
“A little bit later you’re going to hear from a guy who I hear has been talking about launching a potential political career,” said Obama, joking:
“You may have heard about this. Kanye is thinking about running for Speaker of the House.”
Obama went on to refer to President West as “Peezy” and then offered the following advice:
First: "You gotta spend a lot of time dealing with strange characters who behave as if they are on a reality TV show."
And second: "Saying that you have a beautiful, dark, twisted, fantasy, that’s what’s known as off-message in politics."
HA! We love it.
Kim Kardashian posted part of this speech on her Instagram page and now we're left to wonder: Will Obama really stump for Kanye in four years?
