Is it actually going to happen?

Kanye West seems to be taking his first steps in running for office. On Sunday, he held his first rally in South Carolina. Wearing a vest with “Security” written on the front, and sporting “2020” across the back of his head, West spoke to the crowd about his platform and anti-abortion stance. He also got emotional while speaking about personal family matters.
According to Federal Election Commission Form 1, Statement of Organization, signed by Andre Bodiford, the rapper is seeking the office of president under the party “BDY.” West, 43, previously stated in an interview with Forbes that it stands for “Birthday Party,” declaring, “Because when we win, it’s everybody’s birthday.”
West also filed a Statement of Candidacy with the FEC.
