Obama Offers Advice To Future Presidential Candidate Kanye West
Stephen Williams stashed this in Politics
"Kanye is thinking about running... for Speaker of the House," Obama joked with the crowd. "In case Kanye is serious about this whole POTUS thing—or as he calls it 'peezy'—I do have advice for him."
"And number three: do you really think this country is going to elect a black guy from the south side of Chicago with a funny name to be president of the United States?" he concluded. "That is crazy!"
Kanye West would be Trump for Democrats. +e
In that he could conceivably win despite not really having the support of the inner circle?
Perhaps. But mostly they seem similar because of being driven by similarly extreme narcissism.
Narcissism in the name of helping the country. Which is a complicated form of narcissism.
More of a Deity Complex combined with narcissism, don't you think?
I don't think either of them approach a Deity Complex, or perhaps my definition is a little too extreme. It would be interesting to see how both of them translate their thoughts into being responsible for the well-being of the US and the world. I can't imagine being an adviser to either of them in office; that seems like an extreme up-hill battle. However, perhaps they are ready. A number of people have transformed at their peak. Or, maybe, they only see the position as enriching themselves, in which case we'd be in trouble unless their advisers and the press could put the right things in terms of helping their image, legacy, etc.
