Paris Hilton Hints That She Might Run Against Kanye For President—And 2020 Just Keeps Getting Wilder
On the Fourth of July, rapper Kanye West inspired countless jokes on Twitter when he announced he was throwing his hat into the ring to be President.
Here's that official announcement.

Seemingly inspired by West's decision to run, however, another celebrity decided to join the fray: Paris Hilton!

Many, however, were deadly serious about NOT voting for Hilton or West, even for the laughs.

This is not Hilton's first time throwing her hat into the ring. During the 2008 presidential campaign, GOP candidate John McCain made a reference to Hilton.
She responded with this video from Funny or Die.

Only time will tell who the next last-minute addition to the Presidential election might be.
Looking forward to Pauly Shore's 2020 campaign, which will begin two weeks before the election.
