Hollywood actress Lindsay Lohan has announced plans to possibly run for president in the 2020 election.
Lohan broke the big news to fans on Instagram Friday (October 16).
Recently, presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton spoke on hip-hop star Kanye West‘s plans to run for president in 2020.
Speaking on an episode of Buzzfeed’s Another Round podcast, Clinton said: “I’ve told Kanye that I think he might want to wait. Cause I’ll be running for reelection.” The Democratic candidate also said she’d be open to giving West a political role under her regime: “I might want to give him some additional experience so he’s got, on all the other things he’s done on his resume, he’s got some kind of envoy role or something he could point to… I would not rule out anybody for Vice President”.

President Barack Obama gave Kanye some tips about running for head of state during a recent Democratic National Committee event.
“First of all, you got to spend a lot of time dealing with some strange characters who behave like they’re on a reality TV show,” Obama continued, a jab at Keeping Up With the Kardashians. “Second important tip: Saying that you have a beautiful dark twisted fantasy? That’s what’s known as off-message in politics. You can’t say something like that. A lot of people have lost their congressional seats saying things like that.” (Rolling Stone)
A few weeks ago, Kanye’s celebrity wife Kim Kardashian West talked about his run for the presidency.
“I believe he is serious and I know if he puts his mind to something he’ll do his best… it’s been fascinating just hearing all of the conversations that have gone on since that announcement,” Kim said. “I don’t know if that was planned and I just didn’t know about it or if he came up with that idea right then and there.” (“Ellen”)
