Lindsay Lohan for president?
It looks like there's going to be a star-studded ballot come 2020, because along with Kanye West, LiLo has announced that she's planning to run for Commander in Chief as well. Is she serious? We're not positive, but she sure seems enthusiastic about it.
The actress took to Instagram to make the (maybe-serious-maybe-not) announcement, posting a photo of herself in deep conversation at a formal dinner with the caption, "In #2020 I may run for president. Through ups and downs #YESWECAN lets do this @kanyewest #truespirits thank your for inspiring us to be better people @barackobama #kanyewest2020 #lindsaylohanat35 #lindsaylohan2020 with #34yearsofEXPERIENCE #unitingWORLDnations @aliforneycenter @savethesociety @unicef."
She followed up with a black and white Instagram photo of her and Yeezy, and wrote, "The first thing I would like to do as president of [America] is take care of all of the children suffering in the world. #queenELIZABETH showed me how by having me in her country."
Nearly two months ago, West made his announcement at the MTV VMA's that he will run for president in 2020, and no one was sure if he was serious. Spoiler alert: He was.
"Oh, definitely," he replied in a new interview with Vanity Fair when asked if he still plans on running. Yet, in a very non-Kanye-esque fashion, the 38-year-old soon-to-be father of two also admitted, "I've got a lot of research to do, I've got a lot of growing up to do."
"That was news to me," Kim Kardashian told Ellen DeGeneres, explaining that it "wasn't a discussion in our household." Regardless, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star said, "I believe he is serious and I know that if he puts his mind to something he'll do his best. And he will. It's been fascinating just hearing all of the conversations that have gone on since that announcement. I don't know if that was planned and I just didn't know about it or if he came up with that idea right then and there...That was a fun night and I'm looking forward to what's to come."
In fact, Barack Obama even gave the rapper some advice at an event on Oct. 10 in San Francisco about being in the Oval Office, telling him, "You got to deal with strange characters who behave as if they are on a reality TV show" and "Saying you have a beautiful dark twisted fantasy, that's what's known as off-message in politics."
Looks like you got some tough competition, Lindsay.
