"I do have some advice for him," said President Barack Obama. "Just some stuff that I've picked up on the way."
At a Democratic donor’s fundraiser in San Francisco yesterday, President Obama had a few tips to share with Kanye before his intended 2020 Presidential run, ABC reports.
“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,” Obama said. “So you gotta be cool with that.”
West should be “cool with that” considering his wife is one of the most popular reality tv stars of this generation. So what other gems did POTUS have for Mr. West?
“Saying that you have a ‘Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’ — that’s what’s known as ‘off-message’ in politics,” Obama said. “You can’t say something like that,” he joked.
The President continued in his playful tone, even poking fun at himself. “Do you really think this country is going to elect a black guy from the south side of Chicago with a funny name to be president of the United States?” Obama said. “That’s cray.”
Anything is possible Mr. President.
