George W. Bush fields questions about Kanye West for president


Former President George W. Bush seems think the idea of Kanye West running for president is pretty funny.

“Mr. President, your thoughts on Kanye running for president one day? You think he’d have a chance in 2020?” asked a person in the media scrum outside a fundraiser for Jeb Bush Thursday.

The question elicited a chuckle from the former president, who attended the event in Washington in support of his brother

The Kanye query happened as Bush signed autographs for admirers jostling for his attention. As he left to get in his car, he had instructions for the signature seekers: “Don’t put that on eBay!” he shouted back with a grin.
