Journalist and livestreamer Tim Pool attended the HOPE9 conference in New York City over the weekend, and crossed paths with Vermin Supreme, so naturally an interview ensued. Many of you may know, or know of Vermin, the satirical candidate for president in 2012 whose platform is based on free ponies, mandatory tooth-brushing, and zombie preparedness.

“I have become one of the more well-known ones [candidates] by utilizing humor, absurdity in my presentation and in my appearance,” explained Vermin. “I’m all about simple, elegant, and effective, and when I wear the rubber boot on my head, it draws a lot of attention.”

I'll have to agree, that rubber boot does draw a lot of attention!

“Free speech is very important,” Vermin stated sincerely, “and I am exercising it to the fullest of my abilities by putting myself on the front line. My candidacy, it may be farcical, but I am there in the real life, interacting with real life people, real life police, real life Secret Service agents, real life candidates, and I am doing it because I am representing my constituencies.”

It would be interesting to hear if there are actually any write-ins voting for Vermin Supreme in November.
