Dear Kanye,

Someone needs to read up on some facts of political duties, Mr. West. In one of your songs you claim to believe that people think you “ran the world like Michelle’s husband.” This, I’m sure, is a reference to President Barack Obama whose wife’s name is Michelle. This is probably very humbling to the President to be included in one of your rhymes, but hear this. The President of the United States, whomever he or she may be, does NOT run the world. According to your belief, you would subscribe to the idea that the President is in charge of EVERY country when he is only in charge of one (two if you count Israel).

So, I know what you’re thinking, “I can’t change it now, the song has already been released.” Well, you’re right. But as I assume, you probably would not say that and do not take this letter seriously.

Well, consider this: imagine if I wrote a rap that insisted you interrupted EVERY musical artist in the world, even though you only interrupted one. You would feel terrible! Imagine how Obama feels, while you are suggesting that he runs the world, thus he is responsible for all of the world’s problems.

I know you support him, but maybe, I don’t know, maybe you’re just not very smart.

All my respect,


P.S. Thank you for letting me finish.
