The co-founder and CEO of Tesla @elonmusk was almost too quick to endorse the music mogul. Predictably, there was no dearth of jokes on Elon Musk—who had once called Kanye his biggest inspiration—for supporting the rapper in his endeavor to run for president.
You have my full support!— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) July 5, 2020
Murray (@murray_nyc) substantiates his Twitter post with reasons. He says Taylor has 3x more followers than Kanye. He adds that she is way more rational than...wait for it… both of them combined! At least if Swift doesn’t win, we’ll get a new song about it.
I think @taylorswift13 should declare her candidacy ASAP!— MURRAY ???? (@murray_nyc) July 5, 2020
Our friend @kjmaje here is convinced that Kanye’s run for the presidency is only a distraction to take votes away from Biden. The presidential elections are turning out to be a riveting game of chess, and Kanye surely seems to be the queen in this game.
Don't fall for this stunt, folks. Kanye is only trying to take votes away from Biden so his buddy Trump can win. pic.twitter.com/echwSEXvNt— Kevin Alexander (@kjmaje) July 5, 2020
After the rapper took to Twitter to announce his news, Marques Brownlee (@MKHBD), a tech Youtuber, pointed out that Kanye was a wee bit late for this election. It’s true. The deadline to register as an independent has long passed in six states. In the remaining seven states, the deadline is soon approaching.

A hilarious meme of US Senator Kamala Harris's reaction to Kanye’s plans to run for president is doing the rounds on Twitter. It’s evident that @people4kam worries about the state of the country after Obama's presidency.
I hate this country. pic.twitter.com/PiUHG8Ut08— United for the People ???? (@people4kam) July 5, 2020
As @ScottIsThatGuy pointed out, we obviously aren’t going to forget Kanye’s controversial opinion on slavery. He eventually did express regret on a Chicago radio station for the comment he made, when he received backlash. He said, “I don’t know if I properly apologized for how that slave comment made people feel.”
Says the guy that said slavery was a choice. I pass. pic.twitter.com/7zl5osRQVn— Scott Foster (@ScottIsThatGuy) July 5, 2020
These are the lyrics to Kanye’s single, "I Love Kanye." Other than the narcissism for which he is known for, this is also a song about self-reflection. @Muscled_Black tweeted it back to Kanye, probably asking him to reflect on his actions.
I miss the old Kanye, straight from the go KanyeChop up the soul Kanye, set on his goals KanyeI hate the new Kanye, the bad mood KanyeThe always rude Kanye, spaz in the news KanyeI miss the sweet Kanye, chop up the beats KanyeI gotta to say at that time I'd like to meet Kan- pic.twitter.com/6QK8KNSwfD— Patrick Star (@Muscled_Black) July 6, 2020
