As everyone already knows, Kanye West ended his 12-minute long VMAs acceptance speech on Sunday night by stating that he plans to run for president in 2020. However, what some people might not have realized when listening to his speech is that, in many way, the Grammy Award-winning rapper actually sounded a lot like a presidential candidate that’s already running in the 2016 election, a candidate that has dominated coverage on news channels and entertainment websites everywhere. I’m talking about Donald Trump, of course, and last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the late night show host pointed out the very striking (and mostly very funny) similarities between West and Trump.
While their political stances would more than likely not match up, the two biggest things that Kanye and “The Donald” have in common are their massive egos and their flair for the dramatic. And even though we know it would be impossible (and frankly, harmful to our political system as a whole), we would love to somehow see a Kanye West and Donald Trump debate at some point in the new future. However, both of them would need to promise to not interrupt the other, and somehow we just don’t think that would be very likely.
