Deadpool Announces Presidential Run

Deadpool announced he’s exploring a run for the President of the United States in the 2016 election.

“Many of you have asked Deadpool to run for President. There’s all sorts of reasons this won’t work. He’s Canadian. He kills people. Pretty sure he’ insane,” a spokesperson for Deadpool said in an email.

The email then continued to expand the positives of Deadpool presidential run.

Takes millions from wealthy ‘donors’ to carry out their dirty work both here and abroad. Probably inhaled. A community dis-organizer. Not afraid of elephants or donkeys. Cats maybe. You want to talk about the issues? ‘Cause Deadpool has tons of them. Deadpool ‘gets’ ‘social’ ‘media.’

“So today, Deadpool is official exploring a run for President. In totally unrelated and uncoordinated news, a SuperPac – which is totally unaffiliated with Mr. Pool – has been formed. The SuperPac is called ‘Weapon X-ers for Progress. Deadpool for El Presidente 2016 might actually happen, you morons,” said a spokesperson for Deadpool.

Based upon Marvel Comics’ most original anti-hero, Deadpool tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, he hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.

Deadpool is directed by Tim Miller and stars Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, T.J. Miller, Ed Skrein, Gina Carano, and Brianna Hildebrand.

The Merc with a mouth will be in theaters on February 12.
