Kanye West sermonKanye West says he's running for president of the United States but it’s up in the air if he is serious or just seeking more publicity.

West, who is hated by the Left for being a MAGA-hat wearing supporter of President Donald Trump, announced a White House bid over the weekend via Twitter.

“We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future,” he said.

The New York Post reported a 2020 run would be “virtually impossible” at this point in the year due to missed filing deadlines in numerous states.

Responding to West’s announcement, Christian apologist Alex McFarland says wealth and success can make people “very spontaneous and impetuous,” and that appears to be the case with West.

“Sometimes unrealistically so,” he adds.

McFarland recalls the cringe-worthy moment years ago when Kanye took the microphone from singer Taylor Swift during an awards show. More recently, however, West has turned heads and changed minds by eloquently explaining his salvation experience and expressing it in songs such as “Jesus is King.”

Asked for comment from reporters about Kanye’s announcement, President Trump pointed out the singer has missed numerous deadlines in twelve states so far.

“But he’s a very good guy. He is a person that I get along with really well,” Trump said. “In the end, I think he would support us over anyone else.”

“With all the respect I have for [West] as a brother in Christ,” McFarland tells OneNewsNow, “I really don't think, if he is serious about this presidential bid, I don't think he's going about it in any sort of a viable way.”
