In a night filled with head scratching twists, turns and "jokes," the biggest thing we took away from the MTV's 2015 Video Music Awards was Kanye West's rousing Vanguard Award acceptance speech that turned into his official bid for presidency in 2020. With the presidential race for 2016 heating up faster than Donald Trump's hair on a warm day, West could potentially have a chance, especially considering his hold on the youth, bro.

The White House seems to be open to him throwing his hat in the race in five years, and White House press secretary Josh Earnestreleased today a statement saying that they are looking "forward to seeing what slogan he chooses to embroider on his campaign hat." which may or may not be a dig at Trump's campaign slogan. Who knew the Oval Office was good at throwing shade? Stay tuned as Kanye's presidential race makes more strides to reality.
