Caitlyn Jenner says she would like to be Kanye West's vice president, Internet calls it 'pure insanity'
Caitlyn Jenner would like to be the next Vice President of the United States of America. As per reports, the reality TV star has begged Kanye West to be his running mate in the upcoming election.
Caitlyn revealed that she would love to be considered as 'VP' for West's run for POTUS, reports TMZ on Thursday, July 16. Caitlyn was asked whether she'd be voting Kanye when she spoke of her plans.
She shared, "I texted him and said, 'can I be your [vice president]?'" When asked if she was serious about her plans, she teased, "We’ll see!" However, the 'Stronger' rapper had already announced his intentions to make 'biblical life coach' Michelle Tidball as his running mate.
Social media users took to the comments to express their concerns over Caitlyn's reported plans. "OMG - this whole thing is a joke, right? Like this can not be real like. I know we are living in some crazy times right now, but this is pure insanity. Not to mention a prime example of people who are rich as hell for doing nothing, honestly believe they can do whatever," wrote one social media user.
"Omg! If they don’t leave us the hell alone with this needing attention BS! The world has too much going on right to try to be assisting 'celebrities' w/their desire to get back in the spotlight somehow someway since the lockdown. Go away. Smdh," commented another.
Another Twitter user wrote, "That's It!! If this happens! I'm moving to Norway!" Yet another commented and said, "Ok like I support her and her choices, to each is own, but this is just redic. Like GTFO already."
We had earlier reported that Kanye announced on Independence Day that he was running for the presidency. While giving an interview with Forbes magazine, Kanye insisted that he was very serious about running for presidency.
He also added that his days of supporting Trump were over. He shared, "I am taking the red hat off, with this interview." He had also taken to Twitter to share, "We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision, and building our future. I am running for president of the United States! #2020VISION."
Elon Musk and fellow rapper 2 Chainz seem to be aboard the Kanye for President train. West also has the support of his wife Kim Kardashian who has previously expressed some concern as to what could happen should her husband run for President.
In 2015, Kanye revealed that he wanted to run for office in 2020. A year later, the 'Keeping Up with The Kardashians' star spoke with Wonderland magazine and expressed that she was worried about how her past could be weaponized.
While referring to current First Lady Melania Trump's semi-nude photo shoot for GQ in 2000 which re-emerged in 2016, Kim said, "Look at all the awful things they’re doing to Melania [Trump], putting up the naked photos [of her]."
"I’ll say to Kanye: ‘Babe, you know the kind of photos they’d put up of me!'" Kim revealed. Back in 2016, Kim had also said if her husband did run for president it would not be as Republican. "I don’t wanna put words in his mouth, but I’m pretty sure the Democrats. Maybe independent? I don’t know how serious he is about it. We’ll see."
