Maybe Kanye was trying to look presidential as he left the historic Warfield Theater on Market Street.
First lady (ok, not the real first lady) Kim Kardashian trailed with daughter North West in tow.
Kanye was co-host of the event and performed fro the real president. Obama once criticized Kim and Kanye for “distorting” the American Dream, but he was jocular and friendly during his remarks.
“Saying you have a beautiful dark twisted fantasy. That’s what is known as ‘off message,'” the president advised the potential candidate. “In politics, you can’t say something like that.”
About 1,000 people attended the fundraiser and heard Kanye perform. Obama and the rapper did not take the stage together, however.
Once outside, Kanye did not speak and looked straight ahead sternly. Kim and daughter North West were about 20 paces behind. North frolicked on the sidewalk.
For their part the paps were tame. No one shouted questions. Only one pap could be heard saying, “Have a nice day, Kanye.”
Kim could be heard calling on North to take her hand as they neared their SUV.
