US President Barack Obama has given some tips to Kanye West on the American rapper’s political ambition to run for Presidency in 2020.
During a West Coast Fundraiser in San Francisco, President Obama gave a “Presidential advice” to West who was also invited to perform in the gathering.
It is to be recalled that the American Rapper announced his Presidential Bid for 2020 during the MTV Video Music Awards last August.
In his opening remarks, the President talked about hearing Kanye’s plan to run and then he pauses, “for Speaker of the House.”
Obama said, “couldn’t get any stranger.”
It appears that the President knows about West’s “nicknames” for the White House position.
Obama went on by saying, “but in case Kanye is serious about this whole ‘potus’ thing or as he calls it, ‘peezy,’ I do have advice for him. Just some stuff that I’ve picked up on the way.”
The President gave his tip number one and said, “First of all, you’ve got to spend a lot of time dealing with some strange characters who behave like they’re on a reality TV show. So, you’ve got to be cool with that.”
His second tip “referenced West’s fifth studio album.”
Obama said, “Saying that you have a ‘Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’ — that’s what’s known as ‘off-message’ in politics. You can’t say something like that. There are a lot of people who have lost their congressional seats saying things like that. You don’t do that.”
His last tip “hit the Chicago-raised West close to home,” NBC News mentions.
Obama then asked, “Do you really think that this country is going to elect a black guy from the South Side of Chicago with a funny name to be president of the United States?”
The President told the crowd, “That is crazy. That’s cray!”

E! Online reports that West’s wife, Kim Kardashian, has posted on her Instagram “a photo of two boxes of sneakers from husband Kanye West’s Yeezy Boost 350 and 750 collections.”
The caption was, “Special Delivery #yeezy” and it had post-it notes which said, “Obama.”
It appears the shoes, sizes 11 1/2 and 12, is for the President.
Do you think Obama supports West in his political plans?
