While speaking to the crowd, Barack offered some advice to Kanye about running for president in 2020.

“In case Kanye is serious about this whole POTUS thing, or as he calls it ‘Peezy,’ first off all, you gotta spend a lot of time dealing with strange characters who behave as if they are on a reality TV show,” the President joked, alluding to Kanye‘s reality star wife Kim Kardashian.

“Saying that you have a beautiful, dark, twisted, fantasy, that’s what’s known as off-message in politics…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?” he questioned, jokingly alluding to his own Presidential wins.

    Isnt Kanye from Georgia? I get that it’s a joke….but it’s not funny. Especially since it’s Kanye and if he was president we’d be the most fucked up country on earth. I refuse to think of it.

    I mean he was born there but he was raised in Chicago from an early age.

    I wish everyone would ignore West’s ignorant statement about being President of the United States of America. Stop giving this dude attention and let him and the trash he married into go away!
