It’s been 10 years since Kanye West’s legendary Hurricane Katrina telecast, where he infamously proclaimed: “George Bush doesn’t care about black people.” A decade of rants and outrageous moments later, and this unscripted national television outburst is still one Yeezy’s best moments. George W. Bush actually admitted the rapper’s comments ranked high among his lowest moments as President.
10 years later, the tables have turned. George W. Bush was succeeded by Barack Obama, and just like his predecessor, his eight-year tenure is ending with much criticism. The 2016 Presidential Elections looks to be one for the ages, thanks in part to Donald Trump’s surprisingly high support rate nationwide.
On the tail end of Kanye West’s announcement, there’s one specific moment in mind from his past.

Following in the footsteps of a celebrity presidential candidate, Kanye West just announced his 2020 bid at the 2015 VMAs. Yeezy’s announcement falls on the same week as 10 year anniversary of him bashing George W. Bush. Which has us asking the question – How would have Kanye West reacted during Hurricane Katrina or if god forbid a similar national disaster occurs if he’s elected in office?
If Kanye West does indeed run for President or even win the election, he must be prepared to fix the world’s problems that goes past design and greater human interests. George Bush may not have cared about black people during Hurricane Katrina, but if Kanye West moves his family and Yeezys Boosts to the White House he should be prepared for scrutiny that 15 years living under the microscope as one of the world’s biggest rockstars couldn’t prep him for.
