Kanye West "Serious" About Presidential Run, Says John Legend

There's been plenty speculation that Kanye West wants to run for president, and now, an ominous tweet from the hip-hop star is adding some fuel to the fire. "If I were to guess I think he'd run as an independent, but he's never told anything about what party he would run from". I think that is a part of why he likes Trump.

Makes sense. Narcissists love other narcissists!

But seriously... could Kanye really think he's got a chance to be President?

The main problem is that Kanye supports Trump while Legend is a huge opposer of many of his policies, especially those involving the black community. The rapper later found himself battling a slew of backlash after he shared a photo of himself sporting a MAGA hat.

CBS CEO Les Moonves Accused of Sex Crimes, Violence By More Women
Moonves has denied accusations of non-consensual contact, but admitted to having had sexual interactions with three of the women. The Time's Up advocacy group issued a statement on Thursday blasting CBS for considering such a sum in light of the allegations.

Legend told The Sun's Dan Wootton on the journalist's podcast: "I was stunned when he posted the texts". And while many celebrities attacked West on Twitter, Legend chose to personally reach out to his friend via text message.

West was intensely criticized for supporting President Trump and showing his support for conservative voices, like praising Owens on Twitter. "But then, my other side of me was like I'm glad I said what I said, and I'm glad people know what I said to him because I think so many people were anxious that Kanye was saying the things he was saying and there weren't people advising him differently", he says.

He then went on to address a text conversation the two friends had on the topic of politics a few months back that Kanye shared on social media. Along with his wife, Chrissy Teigen, Legend is frequently outspoken against Trump, while West has been anything but.

Kardashian has also made headlines for her trips to the White House to work with the president on pardoning those who are serving long prison sentences related to drug offenses. "I don't know how he'd run". "It's time for REAL systemic change".
