As if things couldn’t get any weirder, Kanye West is running for president:
We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future. I am running for president of the United States 🇺🇸! #2020VISION

Er… what? The. Heck.
At the risk of repeating my errors from 2016, I think this will go no where. The only people who like Kanye West now are Trumpers, and they already have a candidate. All of the people who aren’t voting for Trump hate Kanye for wearing a Trump hat. On the other hand, given our universe’s recent of schizophrenia, I guess the smart bet is that he’s our next president. Why not.
UPDATE: I forgot to remind you that this happened:
