Did Obama Just Cosign Kanye For President?
Is Obama rooting for Yeezy 2020?
Does Kanye have Obama's vote? We can't say for certain, but Obama did share some humorous advice for the presidential hopeful during his opening speech at the Democractic National Convetion fundraiser over the weekend. Kanye would later perform, but Obama had this to say to him first:
"First of all, you’ve got to spend a lot of time dealing with some strange characters who behave like they're on a reality TV show. So you've got to be cool with that. Second important tip: saying you have a 'beautiful, dark twisted fantasy'... that's what's known as 'off message' in politics. You can't say something like that. A lot of people have lost their congressional seats saying stuff like that. And number three: Do you really think this country is going to elect a black guy from the south side of Chicago with a funny name to be president of the United States? That's crazy. That's cray!"
Well, at least Yeezy can be grateful that the president didn't call him a jackass again. Watch Obama's full monologue below.
