Kanye West took to his social media to congratulate himself as he thought he led the votes within the state of Kentucky but unfortunately, it had been not real.
According to reports, the image was just a part of the routine system test so on know all the equipment is working perfectly.
The Associated Press runs the statistics test with fake numbers so as to see for system issues before the particular election but Kanye thought they were real.
Someone discovered a cached web link that we used during June's primary election to post Associated Press election results. The old link was still populating current AP data and showed test results, which is part of the preparation the AP does in advance of elections. (1/2)

Reacting to this, tweeps started of by making jest of Kanye but were more entertained by Ye continuing to think he was winning the race even after the stats were shown to be false.
The artist posted a video of himself celebrating and saying that the West Wing of the White House needed to get ready.
