Roger Stone Wants Hulk Hogan To Run For Senate

Via YouTube

In what is apparently a real interview somehow, former Trump advisor Roger Stone says he’s “lobbying” disgraced pro wrestler and beach fight legend Hulk Hogan for a U.S. Senate run in Florida.

Granted, this could be like that time I told all my friends Hacksaw Jim Duggan was going to be at my birthday party — read: an extremely clever ruse — but if our current United States President has taught us nothing else, it’s that the time is right for our country to be led in part by an orange old man who got famous pretending to fight with people and was then discovered to be a colossal racist.

From Stone:

“At the moment, I am more focused on persuading Hulk Hogan, whose real name is Terry Bollea, to challenge Governor Rick Scott for the U.S. Senate nomination in 2018. At a minimum, I hope to convince Hogan to body slam Scott in every debate. If the governor is under the impression that his personal responsibility for $1 billion in Medicaid fraud is no longer an issue, he’s wrong.”

Previously in real life, Hogan — a man who could not keep neither a pasta-based mall kiosk or a beach-themed breastaurant in business — announced that he wanted to be Donald Trump’s running mate in his Presidential bid, a role that ultimately went to Macho Man Randy Savage.

The heat-seeking gossip missiles at TMZ have already asked Hulk about a possible senate run. Here’s what he had to say:

The short version: no, he’s not running for now, but he’s flattered, and if he ran, he’d win. He also goes for a Pulitzer Prize by comparing what’s going on with the Democrats and Republicans to a wrestling match, and says he’d rather have another run with the World Title.

Who does one lobby to stop that?
