The Internet is fully loaded for Kanye West‘s latest presidential run announcement. Social media has decided to finally strike back at Yeezy with some hilarious memes inspired by his 2005 sophomore album title Late Registration.
Kanye x Late
With Yeezy deciding to announce presidential run plans with the election just four months away, the Internet didn’t hold back on flaming him to pieces. Notably, Twitter users playfully struck Ye with ample lines connected to his unforgettable LP.
On the Fourth of July, Mr. West went to his social media channels to break the massive news. Kanye didn’t announce which party he would go with but said he’s going for the presidency in 2020.
“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 West’s Twitter
Wait, There’s More
In fall 2019, Kanye also hinted at plans to go for the head of state job. However, Ye previously said he had the 2024 presidency job on his mind.
This is not the first time West has talked about running for the biggest job in the country, but now he seems determined, based on his word choice. The Grammy winner was open about his ambitions as recently as this past November, when he said “When I run for president in 2024, we would’ve created so many jobs that I’m not going to run, I’m going to walk” during an event this past November.

Before You Go
Prior to 2019, Kanye had people thinking he would run for president in 2016. At the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards, Yeezy broke the huge news of wanting to become the head of state.
Now, back to politics for a sec. It’s not completely crazy that Kanye is announcing this bid for the White House — he’s publicly toyed with the idea several times in the past … perhaps most notably at the 2015 MTV VMAs. Hell, folks thought he’d run in 2016. Of course, since then … Kanye has dipped his toe in and out of politics and political talk to much criticism — and in some cases, to praise. Just depends on who you talked to. And yes, the guy’s voiced his support for President Trump many times over since 2016. (TMZ)
