Hillary Clinton is beginning to recognize the strange political power that is the one and only Yeezus. Maybe. Probably not. But still, in a Q&A-style segment of BuzzFeed's latest "Another Round" earlier this week, Clinton told co-hosts Heben Nigatu and Tracy Clayton that the rapper should reconsider his 2020 bid for the White House. "I've told Kanye that he might want to wait, because I'll be running for re-election," she said. "I might want to try to give him some additional experience, so he's got — on all the other things he's done on his résumé ... some kind of envoy role or something that he can point to, but I would not rule out anybody for vice-president." This is great and all, Hillary, but why are you trying to make us wait longer for our free Yeezys? (Unless there's something you're not telling us.) Anyway, listen to the full interview, which also delves into Clinton's thoughts on the Black Lives Matter movement, The Good Wife, and squirrels, below:
