It’s safe to say that the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards was a hilarious disaster. But the night’s biggest moment came from Kanye West. He captured all of (ok, some of) America’s heart thanks to a rant without a streamlined focus. When he wrapped up, he made a bold and hilarious announcement.

“I don’t know what I’m finna lose after this,” West said. “It don’t matter, though; It’s not about me. It’s about ideas. New ideas. People with ideas. People who believe in truth. And yes, as you probably could’ve guessed by this moment, I have decided in 2020 to run for president.”

Since there are plenty of presidential candidates who lack political experience throwing their hat in the ring, why not Ye? Think about how America would transform into a country built on ideas, fresh sneaks and would no longer be a slave to brands and megacompanies. If Kanye West has your vote, here are 10 amusing things that would happen if he was to take over the oval office in 2020.


Before Kanye West kicks his Yeezys up on that pristine, wooden desk, he needs to have a vice presidential candidate on his ticket. After his MTV Video Vanguard speech, it’s safe to say that Taylor Swift is the best candidate. Not only does she sweep award shows, but her good girl, all-American image has yet to be tarnished. Not even Nicki Minaj could kill her vibe.

The First Lady Of Selfies

If you follow Mrs. West on the ‘gram, then you are more than aware that her selfie game is strong. Very strong. Picture all of the duckfaces from the White House’s many rooms that would end up in your feed.

Save The Trees! Not The Ones You’re Thinking Of…

If the nation isn’t hip by 2020, the first order of business for ‘Ye? Legalize marijuana. West got his smoke on before his big speech on Sunday. “I rolled up a little something. I knocked the edge off!”

All In The Family

Jay Z, Kris Jenner, and Caitlyn Jenner would be appointed to cabinet positions and enter every meeting with “Clique” blaring in the background.

An Artist’s President

Funding for art programs would be a priority, and Donda’s House would spread outside of Chicago so that art programs around the country would flourish.

College Dropout

Would-be college dropouts would only be allowed to leave school if they could prove to President West that they have ambition.

From Pennsylvania Ave To Lake Shore Drive

The White House would be moved to Chicago and named the New Capitol Of America.

State Of Confusion

State of the Union addresses would blindly inspire, motivate and confuse the public all at the same time.

Yeezys For All

Kanye Day would be instituted. Everyone in the free world would wear Yeezys and trash their Nikes.

The West Wing

Staying true to his claim to fame, a recording studio would be built in the White House. West and the G.O.O.D Music family would release a compilation album. Titles? I’m thinking In America We Trust.
