More people who probably have more important things to be getting on with have been discussing Kanye West’s professed plans to run from the US presidency in 2020. This time it’s Hillary Clinton, who has graciously offered to allow the rapper to be her vice president.

Appearing on Buzzfeed’s Another Round podcast, Clinton said: “I’ve told Kanye that I think he might want to wait, because I’ll be running for re-election. I might want to give him some additional experience on [top of] all the other things he’s done on his resume, so he’s got some kind of envoy role or something he could point to. [And] I would not rule out anybody for vice president”.

Outgoing president Barack Obama offered some campaign advice to West at the weekend, while America’s next leader ‘The’ Donald Trump has previously welcomed the rapper’s competition. And White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest is presumably still keen to see West’s hat.
