Politics turns into celebrity attraction

At the Video Music Awards this past month, Kanye West made the bold statement of announcing that he would be running for the 2020 presidential election. We can question how serious West is about his plans running for president as he admitted to smoking a little something to “knock the edge off.” But apparently, many people seem to be in support of West. Is it just me, or does politics seem to be crossing the line between politicians and celebrities?

Donald Trump, a so-called American businessman, most infamous for his show “The Apprentice,” is also currently running for presidency in 2016. He’s a pretentious, racist and sexist celebrity who claims to be the most intelligent candidate running. It really questions if anyone can just run for president and perhaps even have a chance to win, even if they don’t have experience with politics.

It appears to all come down to money and support of the fans.

Who would make the better president? In the epic battle of money, power and ego, we have Kanye West vs. Donald Trump. This would be a great contest, seeing as both these men have the same personality type.

West and Trump both have the biggest egos and sense of self-worth. Trump once stated, “I will be the greatest jobs president that God ever created.” Then we have West on the other hand rapping out lyrics that state, “I am a god, hurry up with my damn massage, hurry up with my damn ménage, get the Porsche out the damn garage, I am a god.” So clearly they believe that they are above everybody and are equivalent to a god.

West and Trump are both clearly a little crazy, dishing out wild conspiracy theories, even without the proper evidence. Trump has claimed that he doesn’t believe Obama is an American and even sent out an investigative team to search for his birth certificate. Clearly, they found his birth certificate, but of course Trump still claims he’s not American. On the other hand, West believes the government administered AIDS, according to his song “Heard ‘Em Say.”

Both men don’t like being told what they can do or say. Of course not. They are gods and you can’t tell a god what to do or say.

“The big problem this country has it being politically correct,” Trump claims.

He then goes on to explain how he doesn’t have time for total political correctness.

Of course you don’t, Trump.

Meanwhile, West continues to rap in his music how “Uh, uh, you can’t tell me nothing.” And apparently no one does.

As for the decision between Trump and West, I’ll take my vote with Kanye West. I mean, at least the man isn’t racist.

Either way, let’s hope that celebrities such as Donald Trump, Kanye West or whoever else, never actually win any elections, presidential or otherwise.

As if other countries don’t already hate and make fun of the United States already, this will definitely show how ignorant our country really is.
