Only a day after rapper Kanye West announced that he will be running for president in 2020, Etsy users have been busy designing an extensive selection of Kanye 2020 merchandise. And apparently, they have also determined the hip-hop artist’s ideal running mate: His former frenemy, Taylor Swift.
You can now buy T-shirts, sweatshirts, buttons and posters that say “Yeezy for President,” “Yes, we Kan,” and “Yeezus 2020,” references to West’s nickname.
There is even a “West/Swift 2020” T-shirt available in case West decides to run with the “1989” pop star, whom he famously interrupted at the 2009 Video Music Awards while she delivered her acceptance speech for Best Female Video to tell the audience that Beyoncé should have won the award instead.
While it was not clear whether West was serious when he declared a 2020 presidential bid at Sunday night’s VMAs, he spent a significant amount of time in his acceptance speech reflecting on the first time he met Swift, who presented him with this year’s Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.
Although Swift has not hinted at any political ambitions of her own, one thing is clear: She has finally made amends with the man who once told the world she did not deserve to win.
