Kanye West Makes an Interesting Run for President

Publisher's note: This post appears here courtesy of the LifeZette, and written by Polizette Staff.

    Former Arkansas governor and GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee commented over the weekend on the likely public relations stunt of singer Kanye West declaring his candidacy for the presidency.

    "I think he's going to be surprised to find out all of the incredible limitations upon his entertainment career the moment he becomes an official candidate for president," Huckabee said to "Fox & Friends Weekend" on Sunday.

    "All of the vast financial reporting that he's going to be required to do and all of the disclosures, some of which are not going to be pleasant for someone in the entertainment industry, and all of the limitations on the money he can earn and how he can spend it. I think it's going to be a rude awakening."

    But the likelihood of this being a real run for the office, given West's very recent strong support for President Donald Trump, is low.

    It is probably just a public relations maneuver associated with West's singing career.

    But if West were really to run, it could only help the president. It would siphon off black voters and young voters, who would not vote for the president anyway, away from Biden and to West.

    West could do for Trump what Ralph Nader did for George Bush the Younger in 2000-throw the presidency to him.

    Did West and the president hatch this? An interesting question.

    Huckabee further commented, "He seems to be a fascinating character, but he should come talk to me and maybe 16 others of us who stood on the stage with Donald Trump in 2016 and he should ask me how that goes before he really jumps into the deep end of the pool. I might have some advice for him and I promise it would be good advice."

    In a bow to the film "Idiocracy," West announced his run Saturday: "We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future. I am running for president of the United States! #2020VISION."

    What would the Huck advise West on message? "We need to recapture the spirit of this country, that pioneer spirit that led people to take incredible risk with themselves, their families, their fortunes and their futures and to build the greatest country on Earth. It's important to do it with a sense of ever-growing equality and an ever-growing sense of opportunity. We never were a perfect nation. Our founders even said we're going to work toward a more perfect union, but they never assumed that we were one or that we would become one...but they always were striving for it to be better and we are better."

    Huckabee finished with, "I've been to a lot of places on Earth, about 70 countries around the globe, I've yet to be in one that I thought was better than this one."

    Sound words.

    However, since West is probably running for another hit song, not actually president, Huckabee could have saved his breath.
