Ben Carson Made A Rap Radio Ad — And It’s As Magically Horrible As You’d Imagine


This is not a drill. Ben Carson’s campaign made a radio ad, where someone raps, “Ben Carson 2016 / Vote and support Ben Carson / for the next president he’d be awesome.”

Doug Watts, a spokesman for the Carson campaign, told ABC News that the ad was aimed at “reaching [young black voters] on a level they appreciate and follow and see if we can attract their consciousness about the election. They need to get involved and express their voice through their vote.”

Considering Ben Carson spoke out earlier this year against Hip-Hop music, claiming it was “deteriorating” African American communities, this seems like Grade A pandering on the presidential candidate’s part.

Twitter is responding in wonderful and hilarious ways:

We can all go back to bed now, because this is as good as our day is going to get.
