2015 marked the year when Atlanta rapper Waka Flocka Flame announced that he would be running for president of the United States in the 2016 election. The only problem is that at the current age of 30, he is not actually eligible to enter the race (the minimum age requirement is 35). But the man found his loophole — to run alongside legendary wrestler Ric Flair who is 67 years of age. In this video released on Waka’s Twitter account, we see the two “running mates” give their reasons as to why you should vote for them in this year’s election.
It’s not really clear what Ric Flair is saying. In true Nature Boy style, he just spews a lot of entertaining gibberish. But for true wrestling and Waka fans, it’s sure enough to get some people out there excited for a Flair x Flame 2016 ticket. They even have an official website filled with merch for you to purchase. No explanation of policies to be found though.
Watch the video above and let us know if you’re vote will go to the wrestler and rapper.
