Peter Kramer/NBCKanye West’s VMA announcement that he will run for president in 2020 is blowing up social media, and the Democratic Party is chiming with a thumbs up.
The party commented on its official Twitter account, “Last night @kanyewest declared his candidacy for president in 2020. Welcome to the race, Mr. West. Glad to have you.”
The Dems are already using West to attack two Republican presidential candidates. The party postd a GIF of the rapper shaking his head in disagreement along with the comment, “Scott Walker said building a U.S.-Canada wall is a ‘legitimate’ idea.”
Another West GIF was posted with the caption, “This is awkward: Marco Rubio embraces a Romney error as his own.”
So far, West has not responded to the Democrats thrusting him into their current campaign.
