With just a week until the 2020 presidential election, Kanye West still seems intent on getting his name on the ballot, one way or another. Over the weekend, ‘Ye appeared on Joe Rogan’s podcast for a wide-ranging three-hour interview in which the rapper claimed that he had been personally asked to run for president by God himself, among other things.
Just one day before the podcast aired, Jennifer Aniston posted a few photos of herself dropping off her ballot, as well as a selfie with her “I Voted” sticker. In the lengthy caption accompanying the post, Aniston made a plea for why people should vote for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.
“I voted for them because right now this country is more divided than ever,” the Friends star wrote. “Right now, a few men in power are deciding what women can and can’t do with their own bodies. Our current president has decided that racism is a non-issue. He has repeatedly and publicly ignored science … too many people have died.”
“PS,” Aniston added at the end of her post. “It’s not funny to vote for Kanye. I don’t know how else to say it. Please be responsible.”

#IVOTED for @joebiden and @kamalaharris. I dropped my ballot off, and I did it early 👏🏼 I voted for them because right now this country is more divided than ever. Right now, a few men in power are deciding what women can and can’t do with their own bodies. Our current President has decided that racism is a non-issue. He has repeatedly and publicly ignored science… too many people have died. ⠀ I urge you to really consider who is going to be most affected by this election if we stay on the track we’re on right now… your daughters, the LGBTQ+ community, our Black brothers and sisters, the elderly with health conditions, and your future kids and grandkids (who will be tasked with saving a planet that our leadership refuses to believe is hurting). ⠀ ⠀ This whole thing isn’t about one candidate or one single issue, it’s about the future of this country and of the world. Vote for equal human rights, for love, and for decency. ⠀ ❤️🗳⠀ ⠀ ⠀ PS – It’s not funny to vote for Kanye. I don’t know how else to say it. Please be responsible 🙏🏼
Despite the fact that Aniston uploaded her Instagram post a day before Kanye’s appearance on the podcast, he claimed victory regardless.
“Wow that Rogan interview got em shook. Let’s gooooooooo,” he wrote in a since-deleted tweet, adding: “Friends wasn’t funny either.”
Despite the fact that Kanye clearly does not have a chance in winning the election and will likely only siphon votes away from Biden, who is currently leading polls, he is still asking that fans write-in votes for him.
With any luck, common sense will prevail and after the election, Kanye can continue to focus on his music, mental health, and family.
