Of course Waka Flocka Flame announced his presidential campaign on 4/20

‘Presidential kush’ for everyone!

Rapper Waka Flocka Flame is a great pitchman. He knows how to sell you on throat drops and blunt rolling, which means he understands health care and job creation. In other words, Waka is a better candidate for president than most of the current yahoos.

It’s fitting, then, that Waka announced on Monday that he was running for president. In a video for Rolling Stone, Waka fulfilled a prophecy set forth in the ancient text known as Twitter, circa 2012.

Many current presidential hopefuls have botched their campaign announcements, but Waka’s video set the gold standard. As far as policy stances go, he’s pro-marijuana and anti-dogs-in-restaurants. He’s also got that everyman touch: It looks like he’s still rolling his own blunts.
