Donald Trump Selects Down Frontman Phil Anselmo As Running Mate

This was obviously an April Fool's gag. For the full list of our 2016 jokes, head here.

Controversial Down Frontman Phil Anselmo has accepted Donald Trump's request to be his running mate. Speaking to a crowd at a Trump rally at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin, Phil Anselmo had this to say,

“Hey y'all. I'm Phil Anselmo here. Just lettin' you guys know that I'm gonna help make America great again as your new Vice President. It's time to get fucking hostile with ISIS and if you come to this country illegally then you can walk on home, boy. Smoke weed, hail Satan.”

This announcement is particularly shocking as it comes not too long after Phil Anselmo's, “White power” statement at Dimebash earlier this year, contributing to a Trump campaign already controversial for comments about Latinos, Asians, Muslims, Catholics and women but somewhat unsurprising after Trump recently hopped on Twitter earlier today to defend Anselmo's stage banter.

CNN describes the choice of running mate as, “shocking” given Anselmo's lack of any sort of political involvement and past struggles with substance abuse. Conservative news site National Review has called the choice of running mate, “an embarrassment to the United States.” Right-wing outlet Brietbart took a more positive stance and referred to the nomination as, “a breath of fresh air and a wake up call to America's political class.”
