Juaquin Malphurs, better known by his stage name Waka Flocka Flame or Waka Flocka, is an American rapper who has recently announced to the media that he will be running for President of the United States in the 2016 Presidential election. Is it possible for the American rapper to become the new President of the United States after President Obama leaves the Oval Office in January 2017? What exactly has Waka Flocka done to prove himself to the country that he will be a great world leader? Congrats to him for selling thousands of albums, but how do album sales support his running in the election? If Waka Flocka wins, will he get what he wants because if he does who exactly voted for him?
Flocka announced his candidacy for a United States Presidential run in 2016 through a video with Rolling Stone magazine. He said if he wins the election, he will legalize marijuana, outlaw dogs in restaurants, and ban people with big feet from using the sidewalk. Some of these ideas from Waka Flocka seem to be over the top. Students at Highland High School had mixed feelings; where some said they would vote for Waka Flocka and others had a quick response of “No!”
Sadly, as much as Waka Flocka tries to run for President, he’s not eligible because he is only 28 and to be eligible to run for the Presidency one must be at least 35 years old and fulfill the other requirements. On the bright side Waka Flocka will be eligible to run for the Presidency in six years. Maybe that will give hope for fans looking to him and Gucci Mane to make a serious run.
