*What on earth would we call him? President Waka Flocka Flame? President Waka Flame? Mr. Waka Flocka…Oh god.
But here you have it: Rapper Waka Flocka Flame announced on Monday, probably in between puffs, that he is running for president.
And I blame president Obama.
He announced his intention for the presidency on video and Rolling Stone released it on Monday, April 20, a date associated with the notorious marijuana smokers undercover code: 420 .
His first strategic move. Not bad!
“I’m very pleased to announce today, on 4/20, the best day of the year, I will be running for president,” Flame said.
And his first command as president will be …wait for it…to legalize marijuana.
No surprise there, seeing as the man once put out a want ad for a personal blunt roller whose salary would be $50,000.
When asked about his presidential mandates, he responded, “First thing I would stop as president is dogs coming to restaurants” and said another mandate would restrict “anybody who’s got feet over size 13” from walking in public (he urged them to use trains, cabs or buses).
Flame said a focus issue of his would be education, which he called “important.”
“We’re going to teach the kids more reality skills and they’ve got to learn my lyrics before they get out of school.”
Wonder which songs in particular will be on the curriculum? Maybe “Salute Me or Shoot Me” or maybe they can choose between that or “Turnt Up Niggaz.”
And you can get the fashion idea of your president donning a business suit out of your head right now. Flame said he’s sticking with a tank top and flip flops.
But he’s got some solid ideas on healthcare, the minimum wage, women’s rights and who his major competition in the 2016 campaign will be.
On healthcare: “A blunt a day will take the pain away,” he said, adding that all he does is “smoke Presidential kush.”
On women’s rights: “I feel like women got all their rights already, what more do they want?” and added that when it comes to gender equality “It’s more of a respect thing.”
On minimum wage: $15 an hour.
On his strongest competitor: Hillary Clinton
And last but not least, your new presidential campaign runner for 2016 talks how he will deal with congress.
“F—- the Congress. I am the Congress. I’m president.
Now right here is why I blame president Obama. His successful run, election and re-election now makes any and everybody believe they truly have a chance to hold the office.
Every president has had his unique campaign slogan. Mr. Obama had “Yes we can!” and “Fired up! Ready to go!” George W. Bush before him had: “A Safer World and a More Hopeful America” and Al Gore before him had, “Leadership for the New Millennium.”
What do you think will be the best slogan for Mr. Waka Flocka Flame’s 2016 campaign?
Your slogan will ONLY BE CONSIDERED if it is in the THISNthat “Comments” section. Not the EURweb comments section. Its your responsibility to know the difference.
