2020 has been a year full of surprises. With each passing month, there seems to be something new waiting for us.
However, the beginning of the new decade seems to have been a little too harsh on a particular country.
Starting right from the Iran-USA clash, to having the highest number of Covid-19 cases, to a nation-wide protest following the death of George Floyd, USA seemed to have had a pretty rough journey through 2020.
Adding on to the list of shock-waves, came the announcement of Kanye West running for the US Presidential Election!
2020 summed up in one meme. We had: a Pandemic, Riots, Racial Inequality, On the brink of war, Economic Depression, Political division, etc. And just when you think its over, Kanye West is trying to run for president. Fuck 2020. pic.twitter.com/RlXK8TJ9Lp— Warren, The Wandering Ranger (@wanderer0421) July 5, 2020
Yep, you heard that right!
Yeezy is finally doing it!
On the 4th of July, the 21 times Grammy award winning rapper announced his candidacy via Twitter. The tweet itself has gone viral!
The netizens are not sure whether they should be happy or horrified!
The tweet was re-tweeted by his wife Kim Kardashian West and Tesla CEO Elon Musk replied to the tweet, saying that Kanye has his “full support.”
We are sure the Simpsons must’ve mentioned about this somewhere, right?
Many started questioning the validity of the statement and considered this to be a political stunt or simply a prank.
ye think Ye is kidding?
This isn’t the first time Kanye has talked about his presidential aspirations. Back in 2016, he had hinted that he would be standing for the elections in 2024.
In 2016, Kanye announced his complete support for Donald Trump. Now it seems the tables have turned!
However, the only constant things in this unpredictable year are the MEMES!
Soon after Kanye’s announcement, memers flooded our feed with their box full of memes and jokes. Some supported him, others imagined what would Kim do if she became the First Lady.
