Would President Kanye Defund Planned Parenthood?
Kanye West announced Sunday night at the VMAs he plans to run for president in 2020, which makes us wonder whether he’d support defunding Planned Parenthood. If past statements mean anything, it certainly seems he would.
On the bonus track “The Joy” featuring Jay Z from their collaborative album “Watch The Throne,” Kanye voices his displeasure with the federally funded Planned Parenthood.
“I never understood Planned Parenthood/Cause I never met nobody plan to be a parent in the hood/Taking refills of that Plan B pill/Another shorty that won’t make it to the family will,” he raps
While this does seem to mean Kanye would run under the GOP banner, he also has lines in the same album disparaging the Republican Party: “And I’ll never let my son have an ego/He’ll be nice to everyone, wherever we go/I mean, I might even make ’em be Republican/So everybody know he love white people.”
We are staying tuned for more policy positions from the Chicago rapper.
