Presidential candidate, Donald Trump, and The Barack Obama Administration have already weighed in on Grammy-winning artist Kanye West’s decision to run for president in 2020. Also, a 24-year-old recent graduate who has ‘KanyeforPresident.com‘ registered, has been offered six figures this week to sell the domain name. It is almost a given that the hype over Kanye’s announcement on the VMAs has not died down.
But if there was any doubt of this, The New Yorker has unexpectedly joined in on the action with having West cover the front page of its magazine, in which they stated:
Kanye West’s announcement of his intention to seek the Presidency reminds us that it’s not too early to start thinking about the 2020 campaign. (2016’s already old hat by now, anyway). And when one considers Mr. West, it doesn’t take a whole lot of imagination to be reminded of another scrappy kid who won the Presidency, back in 1948, against all odds. The press wrote him off, too. That’s right—Harry Truman.
Yeezus’ cover is set to debut in the Sept. 14 issue.
