Kanye West, a flashing douchebag sign who needs no introduction, was on stage in California last night as part of his 'Floating on a stage above a sea of iPhones' tour of America.

You might have heard over the last few days that Kanye has said he still fully intends to run for President in 2020. As you may have noticed, these days anyone with a blue tick on Twitter is qualified for the Oval office job.

He said in an interview with Annie Mac on Radio 1:

"When I talk about the idea of being president, I'm not saying I have any political views," he added, "I don't have views on politics, I just have a view on humanity, on people, on the truth. If there is anything that I can do with my time and my day, to somehow make a difference while I'm alive I'm going to try to do it."

No political views? Brilliant.

The rapper was on stage in San Jose, California, where he claimed he would have opted for Donald Trump had he voted. To a resounding chorus of boos, West explained that he liked the Republican's politically incorrect way of speaking and the change Trump represented.

Interestingly, he also said "I don't say 2020 out of disrespect to our President" - although West is probably just worried about being on Trump's hit list, having spoken about running against him in the next election.

One fan threw something at Kanye after he continued announcing why he would have cast a ballot for Trump, at which point he stopped and threatened to cancel the show.

Just the type of even temperament we should get used to in the White House.
