Obama Offers Kanye West Presidential Advice

Speaking at San Francisco’s  Warfield theater, Obama addressed the rap star’s presidential aspirations.

“In case Kanye is serious about this whole POTUS thing, or, as Kanye calls it, ‘Peezy,’ I do have advice for him,” he said.

“You’ve got to deal with strange characters who behave as if they are on a reality TV show, so you gotta be cool with that. Saying you have a beautiful dark twisted fantasy — that’s what’s known as off-message in politics,” Obama said of the rapper’s 2010 album “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.”

“You can’t say something like that. There are a lot of people who have lost their congressional seats saying things like that,” said Obama.

The president then asked, “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 U.S.? That is crazy. That’s cray.”

In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, Kanye West opened up about his presidential aspirations, saying, “I’m not a politician at all. I care about the truth and I just care about human beings. I just want everyone to win, that’s all I can say.”

West offered compliments to GOP candidate Dr. Ben Carson, calling him “brilliant.”

The rapper later spoke in person with Dr. Carson during a 30-minute telephone conversation. He even rapped for the acclaimed neurosurgeon.
