Kanye West has some nice things to say about Ben Carson.
Similarly Ben Carson has some nice things to say about Kanye West.
Is a Republican candidate endorsement blooming before our very eyes?
To be determined. And millennials will be watching every move.
Kanye first awoken the news cycle commenting on Carson after he first heard him speak. He told Vanity Fair in its September issue: "As soon [as I heard him], I tried for three weeks to get on the phone with him. I was like this is the most brilliant guy".
Apparently, Kanye eventually reached the GOP presidential candidate. Carson told ABC in a TV interview that he had a chance to speak with Kanye and was very impressed with him, not notably his "business acumen".
Trevor Noah took in the Carson-Kanye situation and decided to poke fun at all the political candidates trying to align with celebrities.
Saying of Carson, "Congratulation Doctor, the man who hangs out with the [Kardashians] all day thinks your a genius."
“Well, I am certainly willing to give him a chance. He’ll be able to explain things and see if he resonates with the people.”Ben Carson, ABC
What makes this blooming new friendship so intriguing, however, is Kanye's yearning to make a run for President in 2020.
The rap star and media mogul first made his announcement at the MTV Video Music awards.
While the possibility seems ludicrous, Carson gave an amicable pass at the notion:
“Well, I am certainly willing to give him a chance. He’ll be able to explain things and see if he resonates with the people.”
Hold onto your hats; Yeezy season is approaching, and it's called Kanye-Carson 2020.
