As college students, most of us are eligible to vote. Many of us, however, are not registered, don’t care about politics or just don’t vote. But what if Waka Flocka Flame was running? According to an article from MSNBC, he said, “I’m very pleased to announce today on 4/20, the best day of the year, I will be running for president.” He continued, “The first thing I’m gonna do when I get into office is legalize marijuana.” This be enough for him to win, or at least secure the millenial vote. (Waka being only 28 and ineligible for office is not within the scope of this article.).
Waka’s official policy stances are controversial. He has said that hitting the blunt will make everything okay, unless you’re not doing well in school. He claims he would ban dogs in restaurants and animals in general in food-service areas. Ridiculously, his administration plans to discourage or even ban people with size 13 feet or higher from walking in public rights-of-way. They must take some form of transportation other than walking because he does not want to see their big feet taking up all the sidewalk. In regards to academics, he would create new educational programs that include teaching “reality skills” and his lyrics, with students unable to make the pace of Waka’s educational system failing going back to third grade to start over. Waka has stated that he would not wear a suit because they’re too hot and irritating; instead he would wear a tank top and flip-flops. The rapper would raise minimum wage, and he thinks all fast food restaurants should pay $15 an hour. When it comes to women’s rights he said: “I feel like women got all the rights already, man, what else do they want?” However, he did say women are pretty tough right now.
Asked about the competition, Waka Flocka Flame thinks Hillary Clinton is his only competitor because women love her, she is honest and her husband is Bill Clinton. His vice president would be “DJ Whoo Kid.” During the interview Waka called the potential VP. Waka asked him what they would do to change the world and DJ Whoo Kid responded with “unlimited weed smoking.” Waka has also shown a disdain for the gridlocked 114th United States Congress, stating, “F-ck congress, I am congress.”
Rapper Waka Flocka Flame isn’t the only one planning to run. Though Waka is running as an independent, his competition is likely to include likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, and a to-be-nominated Republican candidate.
