Top 10 Reasons Why Kanye West Shouldn't Win the 2020 Presidential Election


The Top Ten

1 Kim would become First Lady Kim would become First Lady

Imagine a country whose First Lady is a stripper who gone famous because of a sex tape.

Of course he wouldn't make a good president (he's a rapper with no political experience, come on, and his Twitter proves it), but you guys are taking it too seriously. Do something that doesn't waste your time. - Swellow

The first First Lady to have be made of plastic - SirSkeletorThe3rd

He may even make her secretary of state or vice president...even more dreadful

2 He's not the right person to run

One of the things he's best known for is having a "beautiful dark twisted fantasy". In the political world, many people will take that out of context and assume his fantasy is a left-wing government. Other than that, why would America elect some random black guy from the south side of Chicago who lives life as a rapper? - yaygiants16

He has NO experience. I mean, who'd want a rapper as president? Imagine his economic reform! I mean, all the economy would be from rap music. Imagine his tax reform. He'd tax everyone so he'd be rich!

Kanye West is a fraud! He shouldn't be come a president because rappers aren't allowed! Kanye is the worst celebrity alongside Bieber. HE SHOULD BE ARRESTED, BEATEN TIL UNCONSCIOUS, AND BANNED FROM EVER BEING FAMOUS AGAIN!

Honestly, If Donald weren't president, I would actually vote for kanye in 2020. Why? YEEZY IN THE HOUSE! - Therandom

3 He has zero political experience

And so does trump, but for some reason, trump is winning - RecklessGreed


4 He's a jackass He's a jackass

One of Obama's best lines ever: He's a jackass.

I can never forget the moment when Barack Obama said three words to describe Kanye West: "He's a jackass." It's funny because it's true! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I don't like Obama, but I agree with him 100% on this.

HAHA! - PeeledBanana

5 He would force everyone to listen to his music

I rather have this than have donald trump start a war.

Me listen to rap music? HAHAAHA NO. - PrincessKiana

6 With his temper, he can start a war for a very small reason


Canada: Your music is autotuned.
Kanye: Uwot? I am the most talented human/God in the world! No, universe! I declare war!
Mexico: I agree with Canada
China: Same
U.K.: With Canada on this one
Brazil: Same
Australia: Same
Spain: Same
Japan: Same
Russia: The Soviet Union is reforming to declare that Kanye is an idiot.
Ukraine: I support Russia on this.

Argentina: True, New Zealand
Mongolia: True
Thailand: True
India: True
Phillipenes: True
Portugal: True
Germany: Anyone else agree that Kanye's a jackass?
Poland: Me
Crimea: Me

7 He'd probably change the theme song for America to one of his songs

God, Please give us back John Lennon so we can vote him president (and so that Imagine can be our new national anthem)

DEFINITELY NOT FADE! I'm not American but I don't won't to put you 500 million or so through torture!

As long as it's one of his old songs. Like Stronger. - AlphaQ

Proof? - ProPanda

8 He will make buying album his a law.
9 He will legalize weed

Kids would be getting baked (high) non stop! That's something I do not want to happen even though I live in the UK - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

10 He will twist the minds of our youth

He and his wife are most likely sex addicts.

Soon, he'll change the education so kindergartenersorry will learn about drugs, sex, twerking, and butts. Ewww.

The Newcomers

? The only music will be rap.
? He will cause another 9/11

The Contenders

11 He will change the national flag to a picture of his face He will change the national flag to a picture of his face

West is a jerk who thinks he is god. He will do everything to make himself famous, even if it means having a picture of him on the american flag.

There will be a town named after him. It will be in Illinois and be called West. - BubbleBear01

Oh no! Kanye Wong Un would ruin the US if that happened!

If this happened:
Hey the flag of the America looks like a person hmm.. it looks like kanye west and it burns my eyes - StrawberryCherry

12 He would make rock music (and possibly metal) illegal

If that does happen, then I'll move to Canada enough said.

Didn't he sample a King Crimson song though?

This is the most ignorant list on the site by far lol - ProPanda

Rap is better than Rock but you can't just ban rock. - AlphaQ

13 The annoying and sexual modern music world of America would take over the world


14 He would make buying his albums a law

And you can be imprisoned or even killed just because of violating this "law".

That's when I would move to Canada, because I hate Kanye's music! - RogerWatersfan1999

Kanye: Buy my CDs or get life in jail because I'm so amazing, so amazing! - PrincessKiana

Haha True - Righteous

15 He'll replace every religion in the U.S. With Kanyeism

I'm going into hiding if this ever happens! He'd probably persecute everyone who doesn't follow his religion and put them into concentration camps forcing them to be tortured by his music videos as if he were another Hitler!

That would violate the first Amendment of the Constitution, which says everyone has freedom of religion. How is there freedom when there is only one? - SwagFlicks

I wish I could speak Japanese so I can move to Japan if this happens. Better to religiously watch anime instead of listening to Kanye's songs.

Kanye is bad(who I'd only vote for because it'd be such an interesting presidency), but is list is worse. - Therandom

16 He lacks the simple knowledge

Of course. He wouldn't be able to run anyway as he isn't exactly qualified for the job. Though if he was actually to become president...

He isn't even a politician

17 He's arrogant

He is way to full of himself to become president.

18 He has no political experience

Come on! I mean, imagine what he'll do to this country!

19 He will say that Beyonce has the best video of all time to everyone who won best video besides Beyonce

I remember the moment when Taylor Swift won Best Female Video and Kanye interrupt her.I think if Taylor win awards on VMA, he will come to the stage and take the trophy and give it to another nominate artist. - TaylorSwiftLover02

20 He will banish Taylor Swift and her friends, and family from United States

No, Kanye is better than Taylor Swift and Taylor is overrated. If Kanye becomes president and banishes Taylor Swift we wouldn't have to worry anymore about the Kanye and Taylor feud. - Lucasw14

Even Taylor is better than Kanye, a big wrapper. Lol. - Erinaliese

21 He would make sure he wins all the awards
22 He's Too Young

You have to be at least 35 to be president.
Kanye is 39.
He is not too young, but he still wouldn't be my choice, even if I like his music. - djpenquin999

23 He would name Taylor Swift Secretary of State

Nah, Taylor isn't interested in that stuff. - Swellow

And vice will be Snoop Dogg - TeamRocket747

And his vice president would be Beyoncè. Movin' to Canada! - RogerWatersfan1999

24 He will declare Michael Jackson and Beatles music illegal

This would never happen because Kanye has said he enjoys Michael Jackson's music. - yaygiants16

You can take away Michael Jackson but not Beatles! I love the Beatles! No! Don't become president! (I know this won't happen)

He's collaborated on paul with two songs...but if that ever happens, music is officially dead

Well I'm a Beatles fan, but Americans behaved horribly and some still hate them after the "Jesus" joke in the 60s.

25 He racist
26 He would start World War III because Beyonce's video didn't win at the VMAs
27 He's foolish.
28 He is 55 million dollars in personal debt

Our debt is already extremely high, and we do not need any more of it.

29 He is clinically insane

Let's not joke about this.

too true

30 Jay Z would Be Vice President

Apparently Jay Z is not on good terms with Kanye because their wives hate each other, highly unlikely.

Jay-Z is better than Kanye West. Period. - AlphaQ

31 He will start WWIII because no one will buy his albums

No one wants to hear a screeching donkey but if it saves the U.S. I'll consider buying a song.

I feel like some of the reasons are repetitive

Life Of Pablo went number one on streams alone? He dosn't even sell then anymore - ProPanda

32 Being president is hard

Have you noticed how Obama's hair gets grayer and grayer. It's because of stress. Presidents have to write policies,sign or veto bills, meet with other presidents, meet with the Cabinet. They also have secret service who will not let them use the internet or do anything!

33 He's rude
34 He would rename every state after one of his songs

Don't you ever rename texas or we'll beat you up. - TeamRocket747

Georgia Will Be Called After His Best Song:
Stronger. That'll Mean The End Of The US. - 12cc

35 No one can spell his first name correctly

I always thought his name way kayne

I always thought his name was kayne

This list does better than most. I've seen Kenye, Kanya, Kaney, Kenya, and probably other variations...

36 He would get assassinated by Taylor Swift's father

This is a good reason not a bad reason he would deserve it a little

37 He would make new laws in the form of rap
38 He is a rapper wanting to be president, not a president that can rap
39 He would make Beck's music illegal
40 He will declare war on every country that his music isn't in
41 He will try to use telepathy to make his head go on Mount Rushmore
42 He will make people to leave the U.S.
43 He's been arrested

If you want to become president, your criminal record must to be 0. I heard he got arrested before in 2008, so he cannot be president. - ChroniclerMan5

44 He supports Donald Trump
45 It will be the end of the world the week he is president.
46 America will become like North Korea.
47 America will have a new name: North Kanye
48 He will change the television shows
