Another day means another opportunity for Kanye West to be the center of conversation. The rapper, who most recently “shocked” the world with his announcement to run for President, recently chatted with Forbes to dive more into his political plans, COVID-19, and so much more.
While it was revealed that Kanye West had not yet registered to officially run for President, that means nothing to the Jesus Is King creator, who has plans well underway.
Kanye on his new political party, campaign slogan and running mate:
The campaign slogan: “YES!” His running mate? Michelle Tidball, an obscure preacher from Wyoming. And why the Birthday Party? “Because when we win, it’s everybody’s birthday.
Kanye’s thoughts on Donald Trump:
He insists he’s lost confidence in the president. “It looks like one big mess to me,” he says. “I don’t like that I caught wind that he hid in the bunker.”
The chart-topping rapper also talked of having COVID-19 and his thoughts when hearing that Drake also allegedly had it, along with his views on a potential vaccine.
“Chills, shaking in the bed, taking hot showers, looking at videos telling me what I’m supposed to do to get over it. I remember someone had told me Drake had the coronavirus and my response was Drake can’t be sicker than me!” (laughs)
“It’s so many of our children that are being vaccinated and paralyzed… So when they say the way we’re going to fix Covid is with a vaccine, I’m extremely cautious. That’s the mark of the beast.”
In usual Kanye fashion, he isn’t shy with his thoughts and current viewpoints. The interview comes just over a week since the release of his slightly politically-charged “Wash Us In The Blood” single and music video
