Rarely do we talk politics here at SportsChump. This isn’t the venue for that. I’m not here to ram my political opinions down your throat nor do I want anyone else doing the same.
However, since next year is an election year, I thought we’d engage ourselves in a little political humor.
One familiar face is taking the Republican Party by storm. His name is Donald Trump and as of yet, he looks to be the leading candidate to earn his party’s nomination.
There’s another cult of personality in the sports world that for some reason we can’t seem to get enough of. That man’s name is Johnny Manziel.
After being demoted to third string for his famed and filmed extra-curriculars, we knew he wasn’t going to play in last Monday’s Ravens-Browns game yet he was all ESPN could talk about.
Since he draws so much attention, who better to be Trump’s 2016 running mate than Johnny Football?
This ticket is bound to get voters out to the ballot box one way or another.
Surely I gest but since politics has become such a joke in this country, I thought I’d hold a contest celebrating the absolute absurdity of a Trump-Manziel ticket.
Here’s your task should you choose to accept it.
The reader who comes up with the best campaign slogan for Trump-Manziel 2016 will win one free comb over, free entry into one of Las Vegas’ finest casinos, the chance to never again play for the Cleveland Browns and the opportunity to make an absolute fool of yourself in public. If onlookers question your behavior, just tell them it is part of the contest. I’m sure they’ll understand.
For me, the first thing to come to mind is…
Trump-Manziel 2016: At least they’re not fucking a Kardashian.
There, now that the tone has been set, let’s have some fun, people.
“Drink all you want and I guarantee the house will pick up the tab.”
A hit and a miss by both ,,, Donald Trump wants to build a wall , while Johnny Manziel’s career has now hit a wall .
In the background , Tim Tebow can he heard laughing while thinking to himself , why not me ? (Presidential candidate while playing up my career in the NFL as an athlete)
If that’s the case, Bets, I will meet you there.
I like the wall jokes, Al. Ain’t that the truth.
I can’t help but wonder if this is going to end badly for both of them.
I will have to think of a few…
how about for starters…
“The Hair and The Hair of the Dog”
How about “Egos Are Us”
Or “Support Trump / Manziel – we are not just another pretty face’. Whew…both of them are butt ugly.
I like it, KP.
I can relate to both… or a lack there of.
He he, egos are us.
We might just have a winner, Moose.
Donnie and Johnnie 2016
Because…fuck it we’re all fucked anyway
It looks like Manziel’s going to have to back out of the campaign.
He’s led his Browns to a winning streak of one.
Any odds they re-sign the kid?
…Not if Jerry Jones’ mancrush on the douchebag has anything to say about it.
Is that even possible, Bleed? I hadn’t heard that.
It’s time for John John’s agent to strike while the iron is hot. This could be this kid’s only pay day.
And if Jerry is committed to signing him, it might be time that he too, should be committed.
