A Porn Star And Rapper Coolio: Presidential Hopefuls For 2020

Mac Slavo

A porn star and the rapper Coolio are two of the so-far presidential hopefuls to run against Donald Trump in 2020.  And both say their campaign has what it takes to beat the sitting president.

When Donald Trump won the election last year, porn star Cherie DeVille (who’s running alongside rapper Coolio) says she sobbed. “I didn’t cry because I hated [Trump] specifically, I cried because of what I felt that meant for the direction our country was going in.” Like many liberals who saw their world crumble because of Trump’s election, DeVille found herself melting down. But then she decided to do something about it.

DeVille, who’s starred in such videos as “A$$ Planet” and “Hot Tub Hottie,” says she was inspired to run for office out of her “personal frustration for the current political climate.” The porn star then, ironically, went into full blown hypocrite mode. “We’re voting for people as if we’re on a reality television show, and my concern is if we continue to purely vote for celebrities, or political figures, or the most entertaining, they’re not always going to be quality politicians,” DeVille told ITK on Tuesday. So vote for the porn star! That’ll fix it!

The 39-year-old porn star said she was (surprise, surprise) going to run as a Democrat. “If our criteria now for becoming a political official is minor celebrity, I have that,” says DeVille, who boasts 190,000 Twitter followers. “I feel like I can be potentially what I’m feeling the American people — for better or for worse — want, which is interesting news, scandalous news, you know, not ‘boring’ political news.”

“But at the same time [I can] do what the American people really need,” she continues, which is “having a person with integrity, and having someone listen to the people, and actually care about America in public office.”

According to The Hill, DeVille (whose campaign slogan is “Make America F—— Awesome Again”) says a lot of people “giggle” when they learn that “Gangsta’s Paradise” rapper Coolio is running as her VP. “He’s lived and exemplifies what I consider the American dream,” DeVille says. While a rep for DeVille told ITK the Grammy winner wasn’t available for comment on the 2020 campaign, Coolio told Los Angeles’s KESQ-TV in a recent interview, “We need normal, regular, everyday people in office.”

“Normal” and “everyday people,” like porn stars and rappers. DeVille admitted that the original intention with her trading porn for politics was to “start a dialogue” about stereotypes against sex workers. “I just want to challenge the public opinion that a sex worker, just because they’re a sex worker, couldn’t be in public office.”

While she hasn’t filed any intention to run documents with the Federal Election Commission (FEC), DeVille insists, “It’s evolved into a real and realistic run for president.”  Filing with the FEC sets up a fundraising vehicle for a campaign. It’s a necessary part of the process. And DeVille believes she has a shot at winning – and she just might.
