Besides the Covid-19 pandemic and the #BlackLivesMatter protests, there is one other thing on people's minds - the upcoming Presidential election. With Joe Biden and Donal Trump being the topic of conversation, another individual was added to the mix, rapper Kanye West. After announcing that he too would be running for President, there were far too many reactions on Twitter. Some thought it was hilarious, some called for serious action worrying that Trump would win  and others simply called the rapper out on his "bulls**t." While we don't know how serious the rapper is about running for Presidency of the United States, users started to speculate that should he win, it would be "no different" than President Trump winning a second term.

"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," Kanye had tweeted. After being "trashed" for being a Trump supporter, this was a rather odd tweet to put out. The reactions to the possibility of West running and winning seems to have taken over social media. One user wrote, "#IfKanyeWerePresident Like Trump, we would have a president with a very long rap sheet" with another one adding, "#IfKanyeWerePresident he couldn't be worse than trump."

Interestingly there seemed to be a running theme of narcissism, as many thought both the rapper and the president were "made from the same cloth." One user wrote, "#IfKanyeWerePresident the situation would probably be the same. Kanye and Trump are the same narcissistic idiots that we should keep out of the highest office in the world." Another user wrote, "#IfKanyeWerePresident would be no diff than it is now @realDonaldTrump is a white narcissistic celeb & @kanyewest is a black narcissistic celeb no difference. how about #NOMORECELEBRITYPRESIDENTS." 

Many took a serious stance as the elections are not too far behind. "#IfKanyeWerePresident he would be no different than Trump. All ego, no patriotism and no exprience. We need a new Obama, not a new Trump," tweeted one user with another one adding, "#IfKanyeWerePresident the United States will be in a State of Emergency each day. As we are with Trump." Many also reminded West of the side he had chosen once, with one user writing, "Nahh Kanye fucked up when he said he was supporting Trump, I ain’t forgot. #IfKanyeWerePresident." Another wrote, "#IfKanyeWerePresident wed have someone in office that's trump 2.0 and thinks slavery is a choice."

The rapper recently revealed that he doesn't support the president after announcing his 2020 bid. While many continue to wonder how it would be #IfKanyeWerePresident, others are hoping that "America survives this narcissistic competition! #Biden2020."
