There’s never a dull moment in Kanye West’s bid to become the next Donald Trump. Yes, if you missed it, Kanye’s running a presidential campaign as he apparently aspires to become the next President of the United States.
Although he’s not running for President, he is “walking”, apparently.
In an interview with New York Times, he said he wants to bring back prayer in schools, give more government support to religious groups and asked his campaign staff to refrain from fornicating outside marriage.”
So, Kanye’s now officially a hip-hop artist, fashion mogul and Christian revivalist.
Deciphering fact from Kanye’s bipolar disorder, which he’s spoken about in the past, has become an increasingly complex task.
Kanye’s presidential vision, which is entitled, “Creating a Culture of Life”, contains 10 points, each paired with a snippet of scripture.
For instance, he claims he will “Support faith-based groups to provide vital local services, giving communities a shared purpose in government”. This is coupled with the quote, “We will provide ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works,” Hebrews 10:24.
His declared a commitment to, “Restore faith and revive our Constitutional commitment to freedom of religion and the free exercise of one’s faith, demonstrated by restoring prayer in the classroom including spiritual foundations.” This is accompanied by the quote, “We will not hide the truth from our children, but will declare to the next generation His praises and wonder,” Psalm 78:4.
And then he tweeted a video of someone appearing to urinate on a Grammy statuette and referred to himself as “baby Putin”, so, you know, just your average day in Ye’s presidential campaign.
