50 tells Conan O'Brien, "I like the idea of him running," to which the late night TV host replies, "You don't think Kanye would make a great president." Fif responds, "I just - that's a lot of responsibility. It's the same thing with Trump."
O'Brien then says, "You think there's really no difference between Kanye running and Trump running, is what you're pretty much saying." 50 simply replies, "I am saying that."
