Democrats know how to party.

Yesterday, Kanye West performed at the Democratic National Committee in San Francisco, a fundraising event billed as an “afternoon concert.”

Ahead of his performance, West was the subject of a series of jokes on the part of President Barack Obama about his recent admission that he would run for office in 2020.

Among jibes about his album titles and connections to the Kardashian, the president dropped this bomb: “Do you really think this country’s going to elect a black guy from the South Side of Chicago with a funny name to be President of the United States?”
