Is Waka Flocka Flame Really Running For President? There's Literally No Way, But His Announcement Is Still Pretty Amazing — VIDEO
Did you hear the news regarding the 2016 presidential campaign? Waka Flocka Flame is running for president in 2016, he announced via Rolling Stone on April 20, aka 4/20. Yep, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has some major competition. OK, not really, because I assume this is a satirical video. Plus, at 28 years old, Waka doesn't meet the age requirement for president (an individual must be at least 35 years of age to run as the leader of the United States). However, that doesn't mean the rapper and marijuana enthusiast is holding back in his "campaign video."
In 2012, Waka declared he'd run for president in 2016, and it looks like he's at least trying to keep his word. In the very entertaining video released by Rolling Stone, not only does Waka give a run down of what he'd do as president — like not allowing dogs in restaurants — but he also announces DJ Whoo Kid is his running mate. The two are both very passionate about legalizing weed and smoking it every day, so obviously they're the perfect running mates.
Even though I'm sure Waka fans would totally vote for the rapper, sadly, he's not eligible. However, #WakaForPresident t-shirts are available for those who still want to show him support and lend a helping hand in making our country a "pro-weed America."
With that said, and until Waka can actually run for president, here are some of the rapper's top quotes from his campaign video that will surely make your day, save for his thoughts on women's rights.
“I’m very pleased to announce today on 4/20, the best day of the year, I will be running for president."
How do you think we should congratulate him?
“The first thing I’m gonna do when I get into office is legalize marijuana.”
Of course he will.
"A blunt a day will take the pain away."
Every president needs that, right?
"The first thing I would fuckin’ stop as president is dogs coming into restaurants.”
Wait... did Waka write the song "Who Let The Dogs Out"?
"Anybody who got feet over size 13 cannot walk in public no more. They have to take trains, cabs, and buses. I don't want to see your big ass feet taking all the space on the concrete."
Who knew big feet were such an issue?
"School work get too hard, don't touch the blunt. Think about it. Wait till you're old enough."
Just say not to drugs, kids.
"I'm not wearing a suit when I go to a meeting. It's fuckin' irritating."
I'm all about comfort too, Waka.
“I’m gonna raise minimum wage, I feel like all fast food restaurants should pay $15 an hour."
Waka just won over every fast food worker in America.
“I feel like women got all the rights already, man, what else do they want?”
"Education is important. We need to start teaching these kids more reality, skills... traits. Excuse me, the president has been smokin' one."
The future president, folks.
