The Man Running For President With A Boot Strapped On His Head

Grace Higgins | November 27th, 2019

Known as Vermin Supreme, this performing artist from the United States of America is currently running for president for 2020 – amazingly even with a bootstrapped on his head, he is bringing in more votes than other candidates in New Hampshire. Though his candidacy and act would surely be in line with political satire, it appears some of the public is really getting behind his vision.

A Gandalf like looking man from the New Hampshire political sphere, Vermin Supreme has a large white beard that makes him resemble a magical wizard. Of course, he also has a couple of dozen neckties and a leopard print cape on also. In the New Hampshire Democratic primary, he brought in enough votes to place him in fourth, well ahead of certain candidates like the Republican Jim Gilmore who was even a former governor. So despite having a campaign that is entirely satirical and borderline senseless, Vermin Supreme is finding voters.

Reading his campaign’s website will offer you no further information than simply stating that his mission is to take back American into the Future. A sort of bizarre addition of Back to The Future and Trump’s famous mantra from 2016.

Though this is not Vermin Supreme’s first attempt at becoming president, and this is indeed his legal name. He has been running during the state’s primary since 1992 and using political parody to make fun of the current American system. It was not really until 2012 when a small local candidates debate video went viral, suddenly Supreme was making waves around the whole of America.

His campaign seems to be built on three main points, one he believes in making teeth brushing mandatory and that there will be a secret tooth brushing police. Secondly, every America will be given a free pony and that they will switch over to a pony based economy. And thirdly that huge turbines will be created that harness energy from running zombies, to lesson the American dependency on foreign oil.

His schedule generally includes a large amount of heckling other candidates, especially Republican ones and constantly reminding voters that politicians never keep their word.
