Nick Cannon says he’s planning on voting for Kanye West for president.
When asked by TMZ what he thought of West’s bid, Cannon responded,
“I love it… we need another Black man” in the White House.”
When it was pointed out that a vote for Kanye is essentially a vote for Trump, Cannon said,
“You never know, man. Stranger things have happened in 2020.”
But, on Friday, the Chicago Tribune reported that Kanye’s name probably won’t be on the Illinois general election ballot because he didn’t manage to obtain the 2,500 valid signatures from state voters, which is required for independent candidates wanting to get on the ballot.
Kanye reportedly filed 3,218 signatures. A state hearing officer later ruled that around 60 percent of the signatures weren’t authentic. West has has until Aug. 21 to challenge the findings.
