President Obama Acknowledges “Kanye 2020”

by Bridget Richard

President Obama has finally addressed the famous “Kanye 2020” campaign declaration. It has been about two months since West stated at the 2015 VMAs on August 15 that he would run for president. The POTUS himself told some jokes on the subject during a recent fundraising event in San Francisco, making several conspicuous references, about both his “Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” and his wife Kim. President Obama formatted his jokes as advice for West on his future campaign, saying: “First of all, you’ve got to spend a lot of time dealing with some strange characters who behave like they’re on a reality TV show. So you’ve just got to be cool with that.”

Several Bellbrook High School students also have some thoughts on the matter. Freshman Jasmine Melton says, “I think that it was a rude and inappropriate comment. Because you should give everyone a fair chance at the presidency,” regarding Obama’s almost mocking tone on the subject. A BHS senior had a different opinion, saying, “It’s awesome that the President even said anything about Kanye West. It was really funny.”
