After a long and winding acceptance speech at the VMAs about bros, trophies, the importance of ideas, the hazards of brands, and MTV’s profiting off his unhinged behavior, Kanye West signed off by announcing that he plans to run for president in the election after next. While you could easily make the argument that West’s shocking finale negated much of what he had just preached about, it’s still a great mic drop. It’s so great, in fact, that if he doesn’t actually end up running for president, no one is going to hold it against him. Well played.
