New York City is in the midst of Fashion Week, so that means all kinds of celebrities are coming out of the woodwork and attending runway shows, afterparties, etc. In fact, on Monday night, Wyclef Jean showed up to an afterparty for the Donna Karen Collection show and had a few interesting things to say. Still showing an interest in politics, the rapper talked about American politics and his admiration for a certain political figure from Alaska…Ms. Sarah Palin.
Wyclef told WWD, “I am a huge fan of Sarah Palin. Cause she’s rad. She’s shrewd. She’s cool … Anyone should have the right to say, ‘Look I can do the job and this is what qualifies me to do the job.'” Sensing a little bit of disbelief at his bold statement, he went on to clarify that, “I’m not saying she could be the next president, you know, but there’s something about her…people think I’m crazy, but I like her, I do. I can like whoever. This is America, right?” Of course, you may notice he didn’t mentions his thoughts of her becoming Vice President and since Wyclef already has a whole album about running for president himself, it looks like we could be looking at a Wyclef-Palin 2012 campaign! Just kidding, but hey who knows, stranger things have happened.
