From all directions

Kanye would make best presidential candidate

Story by Matt Francis, Staff Writer

Kanye West is easily the most creative and interesting person in the world today. Anything he does ends up gaining national attention and is talked about for weeks to come. Most recently at the MTV Video Music Awards, Kanye announced his candidacy for president in 2020.

Kanye should have decided to run in 2016 for the sheer fact that he outdoes every candidate in every way. The proof is obvious.

Hillary Clinton: While Hillary “just chills in Cedar Rapids,” Kanye never stops working. He has released eight albums since 2004 and is about to release his next album “SWISH” by the end of 2015. He also has found the time to do fashion deals and spend time with Kim Kardashian-West and his child. So keep on chillin’ Clinton. Kanye has this election in the bag.

Donald Trump: Kanye has money, influence and nice hair. Trump only has the money and influence. While Trump was born into a rich family, Kanye built his life from the ground up. Kanye lived in Chicago’s South Side for most of his early life with his mother, Donda West. He went from being poor to being, well, Yeezus. He could bring his experience from Chi City into the White House if he were elected. Beat that, Donald.

Bernie Sanders: While Sanders may have support from rapper Lil B, Kanye has the backing of most of the hip-hop community. Also, his label, G.O.O.D. Music, boasts some of the most well-known artists of today such as John Legend, Big Sean, Pusha T and Travis Scott. Plus, his wife, Kim Kardashian-West, belongs to one of the most known families in the world. With all of this support, there is no way Sanders could win against Kanye.
The amount of things Kanye could do for this country is unimaginable. Just be prepared America. Yeezy Season is coming in 2020.
