Days after a spirited poker game with Rand Paul, poker champ, Instagram celebrity, and cat owner Dan Bilzerian unveiled his "Dan Bilzerian 2016" t-shirts on men's clothing site Rowdy Gentleman. Bilzerian is many things — notorious for allegedly tossing a porn star from the roof of his admittedly magnificent L.A. mansion; the proud owner of not one, but two cats who are regularly shaved to resemble lions; the man whose frequent photographs of guns and/or cats and/or half-naked women have made him famous — but you probably didn't expect him to turn to a life of politics. Well, that's where you'd be wrong! Apparently.
In late April, Bilzerian changed his Twitter and Instagram bios to promote his brand-spanking-new line of men's T-shirts — well, one T-shirt and one tank top; "line" may be going a bit far here. Intriguingly enough, said clothing bear the logo "Dan Bilzerian 2016," and are featured beside a prominent photo of Bilzerian looking super-serious in front of an American flag backdrop. "Millionaire, Playboy, Poker Player, Sexual Philanthropist," reads the tagline. The tank can be yours for $29.50, and the T-shirt for $32.50, if that's what you're into. On the "buy" page, the website states: "Dan's our man. No way they're gonna take our guns with him in charge."
Here's what we know so far about the unexpected marriage of Dan Bilzerian and the 2016 elections. Bustle has reached out to Bilzerian for comment via Twitter.
He played poker with Rand Paul
Rand Paul is definitively running for president. Rand Paul hasn't yet announced who will be on the ticket.
I'll leave it at that.
He passionately supports the NRA
Waka Flocka Flame Called Him His Running Mate
Like Rand Paul, Wake Flocka Flame is definitively running for president, and has said nothing about his running mate.
Well, apart from the aforementioned tweet, which makes his first choice pretty clear.
And, well, he has "Dan Bilzerian 2016" T-shirts
Evidence is thin on the ground, so here's another picture of Bilzerian looking tough beside the American flag.
Who'll it be, Dan? Waka Flocka Flame? Rand Paul? Has Bernie Sanders approached you yet?
Bilzerian himself seems unruffled.
