Yo, get up out my seat, Honky. I'm'a be the 10th Black president and the 1st urban one.

I ain't a joke. I'm a Kardashian and a billionaire.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Just when you think things couldn't get any weirder in Election 2020: Kanye West says he's running for president.

The [delusional Republican billionaire] rapper, businessman, record producer, and social activist who once spoke of launching a presidential campaign for 2024, made his "announcement" about this year in a cryptic tweet on Saturday.

Experts are unsure how seriously to take West's proclamation, assuming he could even get on state ballots at this point. [It's more likely to be a publicity stunt for a new song, or a way to help his racist friend and fellow DJ Trump.]

"We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision, and building our future," West said. "I am running for president of the United States."

Yeah, K, you be the comic relief for a while.
So far, however, there is no evidence West has a campaign organization, nor is there any indication he has filed papers with the Federal Election Commission just four months before the November 3, 2020 election.

The filing deadlines for independent presidential candidates in many states have either passed or are coming up soon. Qualifying deadlines have passed in Texas, North Carolina, New York, Maine, New Mexico, and Indiana.

The last deadlines are in early September, just two months away, and candidates have to get thousands of people to sign petitions in each state in order to get on a ballot. More
  • COMMENT: Well, he's better than Joe Biden and Don Trump rolled into one, but is the USA really ready for a Black president? Barry Obama, who is half Black, and was the ninth president of the country, according to the suppressed history of the U.S. Historians will argue that the first eight don't count because the country was not officially put together in its current form until George Washington. The others led the Continental Congress or some such.
