Waka Flocka chooses a running mate: Ric Flair - Bring Me The News

Waka Flocka chooses a running mate: Ric Flair

Waka Flocka Flame's presidential campaign has new world champion running mate.

There's a lot one can say about the 2016 Presidential Election, but despite all of the blurred lines and bent rules, the one thing that's remained steadfast is the minimum requirement of a Presidential candidate being 35-years-old. It's not for aspiring candidate and rap sensation Waka Flocka Flame's lack of trying that he wasn't able to get around it, having announced his intentions around the 2012 election and even beat Trump's official 2015 candidacy announcement by two months.

But where there's paint to go hard in, there's a way, as Flocka has opted instead to run as vice president with someone who happens to be of-age on the ticket. He's selected Minnesota-native and wrestling great "Nature Boy" Ric Flair.

With tonight being the final Presidential debate, early voting already beginning, and the Flair/Flocka tickets being months late to get on the ballot in any of the 50 states, the two have quite the obstacle ahead of them. But, they seemingly have a strong backing from Budweiser and an inspiring campaign video tweeted by Flocka today promising to "Make America Woooo Again."

They also have a website with merch that's at least as good as their opponents.

No word yet from Nate Silver as to how this announcement will impact tonight's debates or the election as a whole.

To find out more info about how you can vote for Flair/Flocka (or other, more established tickets), head over to Go Vote MN, and come party with us tomorrow night at InBound Brew Co. for Beerocracy!
