In recent days, Kanye West came back into the spotlight after he revolutionized networks by announcing his intention to run for the United States presidential election.
The news generated hundreds of comments of all kinds and conflicting positions: there are those who support it while others consider that it is simply a crazy idea and that the rapper has a millionaire life that would not allow him to know the true reality of society and rule it.
But beyond all opinions, the most anticipated of course was that of his wife Kim Kardashian, who could become First Lady of the United States. The socialite shared the rapper’s message with the icon of the American flag, making her support clear.
Some time ago, the businesswoman acknowledged that her husband had caught her off guard with the news but limited herself to stressing that West is a man who gives 100% in everything he proposes. Now, she publicly supports him and is determined to do battle together.
Another of the celebrities who immediately expressed their support for the musician was South African magnate Elon Musk, co-founder of PayPal, Tesla Motors, SpaceX, among other companies.
On the other hand, there were some personalities who ridiculed West’s idea, such as actress and comedian Tiffany Haddish and “Full House” actor Bob Saget. Both joked about also presenting their candidacies. Even Saget proposed his former partner John Stamos as a running mate.
But there were also celebrities who took the news more seriously and were even outraged at the prospect of a personality like Kanye West ruling the country. One of them was Oscar winner Octavia Spencer who tweeted: “It is obvious that some people live in a bubble. It is time for it to burst.”
The idea of West’s candidacy as President of the United States in the midst of a global crisis raised the alert, although some still consider it absurd and far from possible, in the same way that was originally thought with Donald Trump.
