Forget Kanye, I Am Formally Announcing My 2020 Campaign For President!

July 10th, 2020

Ok, so about 50 percent of you hate Donald Trump. And, about 50 percent of you hate Joe Biden. But, probably about 90 percent of you, whether you like his music or not, think Kanye West is pretty freaking insane.
