By now we are all well aware of the disturbing chance that Donald Trump could be the next President of the United States. For those experiencing high levels of terror or fear fueled by that possibility, let us not forget who said they would be running for President in 2020. That individual is the complete opposite of the toupee encompassed Drumpf, Kanye West.
At this point in the presidential race, it's safe to say that many voters would actually rather have Kanye at the helm as opposed to America's worst nightmare. By replacing this potential nightmare, Trump, with another, Kanye, a lesser of two evils if you will, one can start to imagine a world where celebrities hold all the cards. While we're leaving this up to our colorful imaginations and hopefully it remains that way, here are five outstanding reasons why yes, Kanye West would be a better president than Donald Trump.
Art will always come first
Here at Magnetic we truly love all forms of Art, so this is a major plus. It's not only a good thing in terms of art in the physical sense, but also from what Kanye's view on art actually is.
Kanye is of course, an artist, and his stance on what it means to be an artist is something that can definitely be beneficial. As Kanye says, "I’m an artist… the definition of art - or at least my definition - is to be able to see the truth and then express it..." The truth is something that is of the utmost importance to voters. While people may have doubts regarding the truthfulness of other candidates, except for maybe Bernie Sanders, we do know that Kanye will always tell us exactly how it is. Whether or not he can see the truth is a different story.
PornHub will become the biggest social media/music platform on the planet
It was announced last Tuesday that Kanye's new album, The Life of Pablo, was streaming on the porn site, PornHub. As the album will never be physically released and was supposedly only streaming on TIDAL when this news broke out, the only place to hear TLOP was from either the porn site or the music streaming platform. We suspect more people gravitated to... well, you know.
With all the awkwardness aside from listening to Kanye's latest while simultaneously watching the Kim K tape, Mr. West will look to capitalize on the fact that people love music, sex and social media. This will be the tri-pod of his campaign.
We can all be broke together
This can be either a blessing or a curse. Hey, if Kanye's just as broke as me, life isn't so bad. After stating that he was $53 million in debt, we can finally have a President that knows the struggle that many Americans have experienced. This point is of course detrimental to the success of his bid, so he will need to seek help while on the campaign trail. Perhaps he will reach out to Mark Zuckerberg again or maybe his boy Jay Z can lend him a few bucks.
Clothes will be made from everything:
"Clothing should be like food. There should never be a $5,000 sweater," says Kanye. From garbage bags to the vast array of miscellaneous items you find on the street, clothes will become practically free to own if Kanye gets elected. Sounds like a pretty sweet deal if you as me. Now everyone will be able to maintain a full wardrobe of what was once overpriced garbage. This will lead to the decree that clothing will be optional if Kanye is re-elected in 2024. I'm not opposed...
Paparazzi will be outlawed
We all know how Mr. West feels about the media. He's constantly being filmed or photographed when out in public and has had bad experiences with confronting paparazzi in the past. When elected, the only way you'll be able to hear about what's going on with celebrities is by either being there or getting it straight from Mr. President. Goodbye TMZ.
