Is he even qualified?!

According to Canadian newspaper Le Droit, Wyclef John is running for president of his native Haiti.

"I can't sing forever," said John.

His foundation, Yele Haiti, released the following statement:

"Wyclef's commitment to his homeland and its youth is boundless, and he will remain its greatest supporter regardless of whether he is part of the government moving forward. At this time, Wyclef Jean has not announced his intent to run for Haitian president. If and when a decision is made, media will be alerted immediately."

Elections are November 28th, so he better figure this shiz out soon.

    wow…and I thought Haiti was in bad shape before.



  2. 2

    It's Wyclef Jean. and it's not jean like "im wearing a pair of jeans" its Jean like a French name, maybe bc Haiti was once a French colony and predominantly speaks French. Way to get a name right.



  3. 3

    Was arnold qualified when he ran for gov of cali? Wyclef loves his country and has dont a lot to help his people out. I think he is perfect, that country needs a straight shooter.



  4. 4

    As qualified as B.O. is to be President and as qualified as Scary Palin was to be Governor !



  5. 5

    What a joke. Did you really misspell Wyclef JEAN's name?! Twice?!?!?! Get an editor, douchebag.



  6. 6

    once corrupt. always corrupt.



  7. 7

    FRAUD. He's just using the earthquake to his advantage and he stole money from Yele to pay for personal stuff.



  8. 8

    Yet another horrible spelling mistake on this failing blog, this time you've even managed to give someone a completely different name! You get paid millions for this shit, could you at least put some effort into it?!



  9. 9

    I think he should. I think he'd do a good job and the people listen to him. He has a lot of passion for Haiti and the people.



  10. 10

    HAHAHAH Wyclef JOHN? WTF.



  11. 11

    Qualified? Since when does that matter?!



  12. 12

    Wyclef John? lol ..



  13. 13

    Maybe he can convince Jason Derulo–birth name Desrouleaux–to be his veep running mate.
    Marchons, Haiti.



  14. 14

    his gonna win for sure



  15. 15

    JOHN?????????? You need to hire better ghost writers Pig Puke !!!!!!



  16. 16

    Doesn't anybody else recall the scandal involving Wyclef Jean and his foundation from this past January? You know… when tax returns showed the organization paying Jean and business partner Jerry Duplessis (both foundation board members) for office space in their studio, advertising on the tv channel primarily owned by the two and $100,000 for promotional appearances?



  17. 17

    his name is Wyclef JEAN you moron. and YES he should run…he has done more fo rthe people of Haiti than their own government has ever done….he is probably the one person who could unite them. The more power to him…I hope he succeeds!



  18. 18

    There are alot of people in Haiti that can't stand him and feel that he is just out for personal gain, and takes advantage of the situation in Haiti for his personal Gain.

    Re: Gary78

    1) the misspelling didn't bother you in your first post 10 minutes ago - probably because it took reading other people's comments for you to realize (by proxy) that there was a mistake.

    2) ghostwriter is one word, not two. Pot call the kettle black much?

    2) if you regard Perez as "Pig Puke" (capitalized, no less), then why are you not only visiting this site, but also very actively participating on it?



  20. 20

    well he is corrupt, didnt he use money from his chairty for his personal use? so he actually does have a chance. oh wait, does this mean if he wins, he will leave our country?



  21. 21

    just you can talk about politics doesn't mean you can rule a country. it does not make you politician period. it's the same thing since i was a kid in Haiti and it's the same now



  22. 22

    I'm gonna run for Emperor of the MOON! And I'm gonna make everyone speak pig Latin and only eat cheese.

    Poor Haiti.



  23. 23

    Re: DRINNY – According to Perez, who apparently doesn't know the dudes name.



  24. 24

    YOu can't help these people bc they all will still vote for another thief just bc they believe they're rap about country and helping they're poor. Its a lot of BS. Get Trump or Jack Welch to run and rebuild the country…give them a year or two and it will be rebuilt and functioning like a top.



  25. 25

    Can they trust him more money? Somebody call Imelda Marcos to be his personal assistant.



  26. 26

    I hope he protects himself. Its such a corrupt country. Good luck to him and his country. He would win just because of his celebrity.



  27. 27

    FINALLY THE BLACK MAN IS STANDING UP TO USE HIS POWER FOR GOOD.
    GOOD LUCK SIR………



  28. 28

    his music sucks.



  29. 29

    John??? Do you mean Wyclef JEAN???? As in NOT an English name? Next thing you'll be talking about "July Churches" and his son "Henry Churches". Idiot!



  30. 30

    "Wyclef John"

    This site is done.



  31. 31

    Is he even qualified?! Obama certainly wasn't when you voted for him Perez. Obama isn't qualified to run a waffle house.



  32. 32

    He could take like 25% of his salary for one year and feed, house, educate, medicate, and clothe all of Haiti. Hate that ALL celebrities don't give more. When celebrities donate a million here or 2 million there, that's not different than you and I giving 50 to 100 bucks here and there. Lame. Cheap.



  33. 33

    who the eff is Wyclef John?
    and the fact that you got his name wrong twice..i mean he's been around forever, how can you not know his name? atleast the site you copy & paste from got it right.
    ….your a horrible blogger. *shakes head*



  34. 34

    He's perfect and totally qualified! Corrupt. CHECK. That qualifies him! He can be as bad as Obama and a lier and theif like Obama and all the politicians! Welcome! He proved he is worthy to be their president when he stole from the charity he set up for them:) A sham! Just like global warming! But we will never tell ya:) We like u to be stupid and it's another way to tax you. For we are the government! We will control all you see and here:)



  35. 35

    wow he's really into himself



  36. 36

    Didn't his Haiti foundation "misplace" a lot of donations made by US sources to help Haiti after the earthquake? (plus, he seems to have problems with his personal finances) Very bad precedent.



  37. 37

    Well, anything is better than what they have now. Go for it Wyclef, it can't get any worse.



  38. 38

    JEAN



  39. 39

    He truly loves his country and has always done a tremendous amount to help his fellow people…He could not do any worse that the present President who has been hiding in the broke-down palace for months, and as for Wyclef's questionable spending habits? Again- he couldn't do ANY worse than the corruption that government is already mired in! Even if he skimmed a little, you know a lot more would go to the people than present.



  40. 40

    Wow! Hm. Didn't know he had an interest in politics.



  41. 41

    You meant to type Wyclef JEAN. Who the hell is John?

  42. Eris says – reply to this


    42

    He is probably more qualified than the idiots that currently run the country, many deaths could have been prevented if proper building regulations were implemented, simply compare how a stronger earthquake affected South America which resulted in way fewer deaths than the less stronger earthquake in Haiti!!!



  43. 43

    John? Really? Was that a REAL misspelling?



  44. 44

    I hate this guy. He already filtered money out of his charity for personal gain. What a winner. Remember when he was performing and he said no fat chicks allowed. What a class act! I hope he goes back to Haiti and stays there, so america doesnt have to hear about him anymore. I have talked to a few people from Haiti and they say a lot of people in power over there are corrupt and conartists. This guy is one of them.

    Wyclef JOHN??! SMH! You couldn't be bothered getting the names (and/ or pics) of BLACK celebs right can you? Not long ago you put a picture of The Dream with Christina Milian…only it wasn't The Dream! Why don't you just stick to reporting on White Hollywood folks which is all you're interested in anyway instead of this disgraceful fuckery!

    Re: Marne Di Simoni – Wanna suck on my cock? Stupid kunt !



  47. 47

    He would be better than what Haiti has had in office. I've been on medical missions to Haiti. I've seen in person the dire situation there, and that was before the quake. The aid money never got past the politicians. I actually think someone like him with such passion for his people could get work done there.



  48. 48

    HA! He's trying to legitimize and extend opportunities for more creative accounting. I guess seeking political validation by his native countries people will help him sleep. Poor Wyclef. "Hey mista-mista, can I get $5 dollaas, hell no matha fucka.."

    oh gross, he should go die somewhere, no one cares



  50. 50

    this is a horrible idea. Wyclef is a pawn of the NWO who has destroyed Haiti with their HAARP weather control programs. We need real people to govern real people



  51. 51

    It's Wyclef Jean. Get it right!



  52. 52

    Wyclef running for president is a stupid publicity stunt to draw attention away from Wyclef ripping off Hatians with his phony charity. Dumbass media viewers are supposed to think Wyclef is now a great guy because he may run for president of Haiti….FUCK YOU, WAKE UP! Wyclef probably used charity funds to pay for this stupid good publicity stunt. Wyclef stole hundreds of thousands of dollars from poor Hatians, he is a fucking disgrace.



  53. 53

    Haitians are grateful for what Wyclef has done for Haiti — that he always has talked positively about the country in the American press. But running for President is quite another thing. First, he doesn't even fulfill the constitutional requirements to run for President, and second, he has absolutely no experience. His work with his Yele Haiti foundation has been suspect for tax violations and misuse of funds. To be sure, a non-profit is hard to run, but it seems he did some very questionable actions. The discussion in the US press about him being a viable candidate makes a joke out of our country — would Americans elect Ludacris for President? He's not serious and we need someone serious to put our country back together. We need a real, tested leader

  54. 54

    Why not. Suriname is ruled by Desi Bouterse who is a dope dealer and a killer. So Wyclef is a good choice. You go man: have a smoke and it's "Wyclef for President".

  55. OT says – reply to this


    55

    Wyclef as President is a joke. Looks like he stole Won-G's style too!!!!! If anyone Won-G should be President of Haiti. Look at what he is doing. www.won-g.com/blog



  56. 56

    Is he even qualified?!



  57. 57

    Americans are so stupid they would rather let a country just suffer and fend for themselves (which Haiti has no problem doing (hence no one cared about the little country until the earthquake)) than to see someone care enough to want to do something more than throw some money. and the money scandal, come on! in we get our money stolen all the time by people in power..hmm wonder how the rich get richer? the tag even has the right spelling and somehow you got John? are you qualified to blog?



  58. 58

    hey, i have been to haiti, and the corruption is just terrible. I would vote for wyclef. the people love him, and he's got tons of money that ISNT dirty. they are already a mile ahead of their current president and he hasnt even been elected.
