The Life of Pablo may meet Uncle Joe in the 2020 election; with the news that Biden confirmed that he wouldn’t run, then that he refused to rule out that he wouldn’t. Yay politics.
We may finally have the man who will oppose Kanye West for president in 2020: Saint of the latter-day meme, Joe Biden.
Let us lay the brass tacks on the table, in the interest of non-post-truth journalism (because let’s give the old girl a whirl), Biden confirmed that he’s not confirming his run … but also refused to rule it out.
Also, best part of this exchange: "(pause for about 4 seconds)"

So, what did we learn, Palmer? Well, translated from political English (i.e., bull twang), gird your loins for 2020. Apparently, it’s not happening, which we can naturally assume means it will, given the current rules in the political system as shown below:
Now, will Biden play to the strengths of his electorate/fan base and run an entirely meme-based portfolio? Will he use the kek/lol voter base to push his campaign, a currently untapped power base large enough to swing the ’20 election?
We quizzed our backup U.S. political analyst who said that, if Joe’s opponent is Kanye, all Biden needs to do to best West is make Obama his VP for four years, print memes, and the Life of Pablo will take yet another turn; if his opponent is Trumples, then surely the Dems will vote with revenge in mind, and potentially in record numbers, to slay the tangerine interloper.
At the time of this writing, this is all subjective conjecture, post-truth waffle, but if 2016 has taught us anything it is to refuse to rule out anything; after all, this happened:
Make it happen.
