Alice Cooper vs. Donald Trump: Who gets your vote?

With a 10-item manifesto that includes banning selfies, Alice Cooper has announced simultaneous bids for President of the United State and Prime Minister of Great Britain. To hell with making America great again, “make America sick again,” he says. His campaign slogan? “A Troubled Man for Troubled Times.”


It’s a ploy for attention (not an actual bid to run), but it’s tinged with enough cutting commentary to get voters thinking. “He is asking his fellow Americans, and all those around the world who are disillusioned with their leaders, to join ‘The Wild Party.’ … Cooper has rattled the cages and undermined the authority of generations of guardians of the status quo, continuing to surprise fans and exude danger at every turn, like a great horror movie, even in an era where 24 hour cable news can present real life shocking images.”

“It’s so funny to think about Donald Trump and Hilary,” Cooper said in an interview last fall (via Blabbermouth). “It’s going to be the funniest election of all time. I mean, think of it. I keep thinking to myself, is this really the best we can do? With all the great minds in America, this is really the best we can do?”

He didn’t sound keen on Trump. “(Voters) don’t want some vanilla politician in there anymore doing business for us that’s milk toast. They want a guy (like Trump) that is going to do something. I don’t know how much he knows about foreign policy and that’s what worries me, and I think [it worries] a lot of people.”
