NEW YORK–In a surprise press conference last week, Anthony Weiner’s Penis announced that it intends to throw its hat into the race to become the 45th President of the United States of America in 2016. Even though Weiner’s Penis has a monumental task ahead of it, many political strategists believe that its recent virality has given it an invaluable advantage in the upcoming race to become the head of state.
“Weiner’s Penis has already gained significantly more exposure than any other potential 2016 nominee. It is establishing himself early on as a household name, and I believe this will pay off big come campaign season,” noted senior political analyst Geddy Peart.
Some opponents have criticized Weiner’s Penis for its “edgy” and “guerrilla” marketing tactics, however its supporters and many political analysts argue that, while occasionally crude, Weiner’s Penis’ mastery of social media is its biggest strength.
“I’ve been in politics for forty-seven years, and I’ve never seen more young people re-tweet a politician’s posts in my entire career. Weiner’s Penis really knows how to not only target, but engage America’s youth on an never before seen level.”
“Obama’s 2008 and 2012 victories have demonstrated that a strong social media presence is crucial to reaching out to voters, and I think Weiner’s Penis has really taken this lesson to heart.”
Running on a platform of transparency and a return to Clinton-style politics, Weiner’s penis has already amassed over a million followers on twitter. In a speech made last Thursday from his campaign headquarters in New York, Weiner’s Penis vowed that his administration would be, “one of the most transparent in American history”.
