Porn star launches bid to become 2020 American president

A porn star, Cherie DeVille, is considering running against Donald Trump in the 2020 election with ’90s rapper Coolio as her running mate.

According to the 39-year-old, she has been thinking about the run ever since Donald Trump was elected last November.

“When he first ran, I thought his campaign was a stunt or joke, and people were only watching because it made good TV,” she told HuffPost. “I thought when the election came, people would do what’s right and not vote for him.”

“But people seem more interested in celebrity than a person’s views and more interested in the spectacle,” she said.

If a spectacle is what the public wants, DeVille said she’s willing to provide that, if her efforts can help unseat Trump from the presidency.

“My philosophy of governing is based on integrity, honesty and openness,” she said. “I will listen to my experts. I’m not an insane narcissist. I love other people.”

Cherie DeVille decided to toss her hat in the political ring, saying she’s planning on running 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.”

The adult film performer — 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.”

DeVille also realizes she can’t depend on her own level of fame to get her the amount of free publicity Trump got. That’s why she’s bringing in Coolio as her vice president.

“He represents the American dream,” she said. “He started from nothing and made something of himself.”

Coolio believes he and DeVille represent a necessary change from the current situation.

“Somebody’s got to do something, man, somebody’s got to try. We need normal people, we need normal, regular, everyday people in office,” Coolio told LA station KESQ.
