We’re in the thick of another long run of presidential primaries and that means that a bunch of candidates will promise you whatever your heart desires in order to get your vote. You could walk up to Lincoln Chaffee right now and tell him that you’d vote for him if he got down on all fours and barked like a dog in heat and he’d probably do it. Of course, before he did that, you’d have to realize that Lincoln Chaffee is actually one of the candidates. Former First Lady and New York Senator Hillary Clinton is trying to maintain her lead by strengthening her support with those finicky millennials by making one of her most insane promises yet.
Which one of these people thinks they are God?
Back in August, Kanye West made the announcement at the MTV Video Music Awards that he wants to run for President in 2020 because let’s face it, if Donald Trump wins, we’re going to need a bigger ego to get him out of the White House and they don’t come any bigger than Kanye West. Hillary Clinton made an appearance on the Buzzfeed podcast “Another Round” where he talked about West and how she reportedly told her, “I think he might want to wait. Cause I’ll be running for reelection.” That led to her bizarre announcement that she put West on the “to-consider” list for jobs in her cabinet including as her running mate. Why stop there? Why not tell millennials that you’re also considering having Perry the Platypus from “Phineas and Ferb” as your CIA chief?
To be fair, the full quote from the podcast states that she “would not rule out anybody for Vice President” but if she was smart and if someone asks her West is on that list, she just say “No” until she either passes out or someone tells her to stop. You can’t rail against Donald Trump for being an opportunistic publicity hound and then say you’re going to consider adding Kanye West to the ticket. It’s about as pointless as a pirate who wears an eye patch over their good eye.
