Chance the Rapper unofficially endorses Kanye West for president


Chance the Rapper found himself trending for all the wrong reasons this morning, after seeming to endorse Kanye West's bid for the presidency in 2020.

It started with Chance (real name Chancelor Johnathan Bennett) retweeting a video West posted to his Twitter account in memory of his late mother, in which she can be heard reciting lyrics by rapper KRS-One over a montage of archival footage, commenting, "And yall [sic] out here tryna convince me to vote for Biden. Smfh (Shaking my fucking head)."



From there, he went on to (among other things) accuse those opposed to a West presidency of being racist, defend West's anti-vaccination stance and attempt to draw a comparison between West's presidential qualifications and those of 1829 president Andrew Jackson.
