Friday's HOT MIC

Friday's HOT MIC

Remember this guy?

Now the limo-driving flat-earther wants to run for governor in California.

From Vice:

"Do I believe the Earth is shaped like a Frisbee? I believe it is," he told the LA Times. "Do I know for sure? No. That's why I want to go up in space."

Along with a renewed appreciation for his pets, Hughes's close call with death apparently got him thinking about his future. He told the AP that his next step is to run for governor of California, seeing as he might have a better shot making a bid for public office.

This is the state that just gave Jerry Brown to bonus terms as governor to round out his career. Never rule anything out.

Also, this would sadly be an upgrade over any of the Democrats poised to assume Brown's Supermajority throne.
