Anyone Can Be Next House Speaker
… Even You, Kanye!!!

Sen. Marco Rubio is shedding some light on a little known fact about the position of Speaker of the House — and no offense to Paul Ryan, but any Joe Schmo can do it! Even Kanye West.
We got Rubio Thursday on Capitol Hill and addressed the soon-to-be open gig — now that Rep. Ryan’s bowed out of reelection — and the fact that it’s literally wide open. If ya didn’t know … you don’t even have to be in Congress to score the job.
Rubio makes it clear there are a few caveats, mostly because you’d be 3rd in line of succession to the White House. But as our camera guy and the Senator point out … Yeezy is more than eligible.
Before Kim starts packing for D.C., though — Rubio had the perfect analogy for why he wouldn’t bet on ‘Ye or any other political outsider becoming Speaker.
