Anyone else see that Kanye West is running for president this year? He announced it on July 4th and just gave an interview with Forbes. He plans to run under a new party he made called the Birthday Party. He also revealed the following (this is all real btw):

 

  • That he’s running for president in 2020 under a new banner—the Birthday Party—with guidance from Elon Musk and an obscure vice presidential candidate he’s already chosen. “Like anything I’ve ever done in my life,” says West, “I’m doing to win.”
  • That he no longer supports President Trump. “I am taking the red hat off, with this interview.”
  • That he’s ok with siphoning off Black votes from the Democratic nominee, thus helping Trump. “I’m not denying it, I just told you. To say that the Black vote is Democratic is a form of racism and white supremacy.”
  • That he’s never voted in his life because he was scared. He was told that if he voted Trump, his music career would be over. He was threatened into being in one party.
  • That he was sick with Covid-19 in February.
  • That he’s suspicious of a coronavirus vaccine, terming vaccines “the mark of the beast.”
  • That he believes “Planned Parenthoods have been placed inside cities by white supremacists to do the Devil’s work.”
  • That he envisions a White House organizational model based on the secret country of Wakanda in Black Panther.
  • His VP pick is Michelle Tidball, an obscure preacher from Wyoming.
  • He denies it is a publicity stunt for his upcoming album.

Isn't it like way too late to join in on running for president?

I don't think there is a cutoff. But according to this, he missed the deadline for being on the ballot as an independent in 4 states. But he's not running as an independent so idk. 

He has failed to register with the Federal Election Commission so far. He has to do that if he wants to run. 

So I guess it's technically not too late but the likelihood of him winning at this point is incredibly low.

He HAS to know this right...? This is definitely just a publicity stunt... or to pull votes...

Follow the money.  Keep in mind this man owns a clothing line.  There will soon be plenty enough "official" Kanye 2020 wear, and you better believe it will sell like hot cakes.

I know the man is either unstable or enjoys playing that card, but he is smart in other ways.  He's just profiteering off of the times and the fact that this is an election year.

He probably does. I guess we'll see how serious he actually is over the next month or so. It sure does makes this election more interesting though.

This seems most likely.  Get some attention and cash in real quick.

I'm happy to announce here today that I, too, am running for president.

You could run for prime minster!  Do you have a similar loophole like we do in the US where the Constitution does NOT read that the Speaker of the House has to be a Representative?

Just now, Gloves said:

No way baby I'm goin' all the way to the top, the White House.

I don't think you can do that if you're a Canadian citizen/resident...say where does your Canadian Prime Minister live and what's his equivalent of "Air Force One"?  Hopefully better than the UK's Prime Minister, all he gets is a door with a 10 on it! 😛

This day and age, you'd be wrong.  I mean, running for president is pointless anyway.  It's not like this country cares about laws anymore anyway.  Actually, Gloves, don't run for the president.  Just declare it.  If we can kick our cops out, might as well allow self-established overlords.

A vote for Gloves is a vote for COMMUNISM.

 

Did you know that @Gloves is NOT in fact a pair of latex gloves.

Did you know that @Gloves is Canadican? Who know who else is Canadian? Justin Trudeau (or is he actually the illegitimate child of Fidel Castro!!!)

Did you know that Canadia uses the commie "Metric" system? They've even invaded our state Maine with their filthy round numbers. DISTANCE SHOULD BE MEASURED IN MILES, WHICH ARE SIMPLY 5280 FEET (or is it 5820....I always forget)

Did you know that Canadia is British territory? You know who's face is on their money? Queen Elizabeth! SHES NOT MY QUEEN, BEND THE KNEE JUSTIN!

Did you know that Canadia has two forms of currency, both of which are illegitimate in America!? (I'm talking about Canadian Tire Money, and Plastic money)

Did you know that Canadia is the second largest nation by landmass alone, but 90% of it is WASTELAND! Do you want THAT in America?

Did you know that approximately 80% of all Canadicans live on the US Border!? Are they planning an INVASION!?

Did you know that Canadia's military refuses to reclaim "Saint Pierre and Miquelon" from France? There are 6,000 captive Canadicans living in fear. WAKE UP CANADIA.

Did you know that Canadia's official pass time is hanging out at Tim Hortons? A MAPLE SYRUP THEMED SOCIALIST COFFEE CHAIN.

Did you know that Canadicans pay EXTREMELY HIGH TAXES to fund "Free" healthcare. WHAT'S FREER THAN FREEDOM FROM OPPRESSION @Gloves

Did you know that in Canadia it isn't called "Ice Hockey" since ice is the default state. They just call it "Hockey". It'd be like calling Golf "Grass Golf" or Surfing "Water Boarding" (not to be confused with our superior enhanced interrogation tactics)

 

Don't vote for @Gloves

Do the mansions fly? Like Air Force One?

I thought you meant their offical residence; but yeah surely other world leaders should get their own plane that's just as if not more iconic than Air Force One should they not?  What about QE2?  Or the pope...I mean he has a "pope mobile" after all...
