Kanye West and Miley Cyrus could be a hot presidential ticket in 2020, but not if Jimmy Fallon has anything to do about it. The pair had a hilarious exchange about who should be Kanye’s Veep on the Oct. 1 episode of ‘The Tonight Show.’ Watch the video here!
Miley Cyrus, 22, stopped by The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, 41, on Oct. 1, to promote her upcoming third round of hosting NBC’s iconic Saturday Night Live. While the pair were discussing how awesome her performance was during the show’s 40th anniversary special, the talk quickly turned to Kanye West, 38, and his announcement that he’ll be running for president in 2020.
West/Cyrus or West/Fallon? Who would you vote for in 2020? That could be the ticket choices we have if the singer and late night talk show host have anything to do about it. Miley thanked Jimmy for his compliments about her SNL anniversary performance and quipped, “I was the only chick. I was the only girl and the only one that wasn’t old…er. Besides Kanye. Compared to me, compared to me.”
Realizing Kanye is NOT someone you’d want to get on the bad side of, she quickly corrected herself noting, “But even Kanye’s kinda old, compared to me,” she said. “But he’s about to be our future president, so I shouldn’t say too much.” Good idea, because Yeezus is really taking this presidential thing seriously!
“I’m vice president, hello,” Fallon retorted. The singer suggested she’d be ready for the challenge as well, telling Jimmy, “Uh, you’ll have to fight me for it.” Jimmy replied, “can’t wait for the debates girl! Unfortunately for Miley’s sake, you have to be over the age of 35 to hold the office of Vice President and she’ll still be too young when the 2020 election rolls around.
HollywoodLifers, who would you rather see as Kanye’s Vice President — Jimmy Fallon or Miley Cyrus?
