Could Kanye West Be Hillary Clinton's Vice President?
Kanye West turned heads at the MTV VMA’s in August when he said he was going to run for president in 2020.
Now, in an episode of Buzzfeed’s “Another Round” podcast, Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton said: “I've told Kanye that I think he might want to wait. Cause I’ll be running for reelection."
Clinton also mentioned that she may have a special role for the rapper as her Veep.
"I might want to give him some additional experience so he’s got, on all the other things he’s done on his resume, he’s got some kind of envoy role or something he could point to... I would not rule out anybody for Vice President,” she said.
Clinton will go head-to-head with Senator Bernie Sanders in the CNN Democratic debates on Tuesday night.
Kanye also got some advice from President Obama at a recent fundraiser in San Francisco over the weekend.
The president’s advice included jabs at the rapper's reality TV in-laws and his albums: “First of all, you have to spend some time dealing with some strange characters who behave like they’re on a reality TV show. You gotta 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. People have lost congressional seats that way.
“And number three: Do you really think this country’s going to elect a black guy from the South Side of Chicago with a funny name to be president of the U.S.? That’s crazy.”
