It’s safe to say that Kanye West will not be president of the United States of America… at least not as a result of the 2020 election.
But if the American rapper has anything to say about it, all that will change in 2024.
But because he failed to qualify for the ballot in his home state of Wyoming, he had to write his own name in.
The posts started out super optimistic with a motivational “keep believing” caption:
KEEP BELIEVING KANYE 2020 Thank you Jesus Christ https://t.co/OgFDGOCAOp — ye (@ye)
The first vote of my life We are here to serve We pray for every servant leader in the world 🕊 https://t.co/UWSrKslCt1 — ye (@ye)

He also tweeted “Kanye 2020” and posted a photo proudly wearing his “I voted” sticker.

Then just nine hours later, the tone switched and West essentially conceded defeat and focussed his attention on the 2024 election:
It’s estimated West received at least 50,000 votes in this year’s US election.
And people had a lot of thoughts – namely that West’s run was completely “ridiculous” (among other things):
the fact that you got 46,000+ votes was so incredibly ridiculous i can’t believe you’re still keeping this shit up https://t.co/BbLYM7FCAp — lucie (@lucie)
Then the memes started:
To add insult to injury, Kanye’s wife Kim Kardashian reportedly may have voted for Joe Biden.
