Waka Flocka Flame Formally Announces 2016 Presidential Bid, Chooses Ric Flair as Running Mate
Don't wait for Kanye in four years, the revolution begins now
If you thought you had to wait until 2020 to see a star rapper run for President, you’re in luck. Waka Flocka Flame has formally announced his 2016 bid for President, just 20 days away from the general election.
Flocka originally told his Twitter followers in 2012 that he was “dead ass” running for president in the next election, but a campaign didn’t immediately materialize. He did, however, test the waters by crowd-sourcing an essential cabinet duty, an experiment that was met with celebrity participation.
At this point, Waka must’ve thought to himself, “Shit, I can do this.”
So, he’s going for it, and now has to make up for about 24 months of campaigning in 20 days. He’ll have help, as he’s announced Ric Flair as his running mate, and together they’ll try to Make America “Wooo” Again. Why Ric Flair, and not Seth Rogen, the guy who volunteered to be Flocka’s personal blunt roller?
C’mon. You know why. “[I’m the] kiss-stealin’, wheelin’ and dealin’, limousine ridin’, jet flyin’ son of a gun. You can have Waka Flocka and the Nature Boy on the same ticket now. Register to vote! We won’t lose!”
Yeah, this is happening. Not actually happening, like Flocka/Flair actually being on the Nov. 8 ballot, happening. But it’s definitely campaign spot (below) and Flocka/Flair website, happening.
