President Obama Gives Kanye West Advice On His Presidential Campaign

#KanyeForPresident2020 may or may not be a “thing” but President Obama sure made light of the situation at a fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee in San Francisco. 

Both Kanye and Obama were guests at the fundraiser where Kanye was set to perform. The crowd got a sample of Kanye’s upcoming album, SWISH. 

Before performing, Obama gave his scheduled speech and threw a few jokes in there about Kanye and his 220 presidential candidacy. 

“In a little while you are going to hear from a guy who is thinking about getting into politics…in case Kanye is serious about this whole POTUS thing, or, as Kanye calls it, ‘peezy.'” Obama said before offering some words of advice: “You’ve got to deal with strange characters who behave as if they are on a reality TV show. Saying you have a beautiful dark twisted fantasy — that’s what’s known as off-message in politics.” 

Obama jokingly posed a question to Kanye before leaving the podium, “Do you really think this country is going to elect a black guy from the south side of Chicago with a funny name to be president of the U.S.?” 

Good to know our POTUS has a good sense of humor!
