October 26, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – So, Kanye West — 2020 presidential candidate, rap artist, and (recently) self-described Christian — headed over to Texas for a conversation with Joe Rogan, and it was quite the ride. West talked about how he plans to create stadium churches; his brawls with the music industry executives; his (very American) path from hip hop to church and sort of back again; and his apparently very real political aspirations.
Despite accusations from the Left that Kanye West is running for president as the 2020 election cycle’s Jill Stein with an eye to screwing things up for Joe Biden, West dropped $3 million on his campaign last month alone. West assured Rogan that he is running to win—although he was pretty vague on the particulars. “It was something that God put in my heart back in 2015,” West told a surprisingly straight-faced and very secular Rogan. “A few days before the MTV Awards it hit me in the shower. When I first thought of it, I just started laughing to myself and all this joy came over my body, through my soul. I felt that energy. I felt that spirit.”
When Rogan suggested that he might want to take a shot at a governorship first like Ronald Reagan, West shrugged it off, clearly having none of it. “If it’s in God’s plan that part of my path is to be the governor then that’s fine, but my calling is to be the leader of the free world,” he replied resolutely. Trump’s team might be hoping that West voters act as a spoiler for Biden, but West clearly has his own plans.
