(PCM) Many got a good laugh when Kanye West took to the stage at the MTV Video Music Awards and revealed that he has plans to run for President of the United States in the 2020 election, however according to wife Kim Kardashian he is actually serious about his bid.
During her recent appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres show, Kim revealed that she was just as surprised as everyone else when Kanye revealed his political goal saying “That was news to me! That wasn’t a discussion in our household” beforehand”. Kim went to say “I believe he is serious and I know that if he puts his mind to something he’ll do his best. It’s been fascinating just hearing all the conversation that’s gone on since that announcement. I don’t know if that was planned and I just didn’t know about it or if he just came up with that idea then and there.”
DeGeneres remarked that Kanye did say that he was high when he took to the stage to make the announcement and accept his MTV Video Vanguard Award, however despite that fact he is still not shying away from the idea of a 2020 Presidential bid. That is definitely a bit of a scary thought and as the interview went on, it seems that Kim had more concern over the redecorating of the White House rather than her husband’s political platforms saying “That’s a big thing to not talk to your wife about — but I think it would be so much fun to be in the White House. I was joking with him, I was like, ‘You’re going to have to make it to a second term’ — because he loves redecorating — so I was like, ‘You’re going to want to redo the whole White House, and we’re not going to be able to enjoy it so we’re going to just have to go with the flow.’ ”
If this happens in 2020, we think it might be time to move!
