ORANGE COUNTY, Calif., March 3, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Film legend Daffy Duck announced his intent to seek the office of President of the United States. Shouting at a crowd of three from the steps of the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity, he said, "A vote for Daffy Duck is a vote for creativity and imagination, and I'm throwing my bill into the ring! Why not? It's been thrown everywhere else!"
Mr. Duck's reasons for entering the 2016 political fray were concise: "As candidates of both parties fall away, one candidate rises! A champion of the people who's not mainstream (but who knows his streams). He's more stream-of-consciousness. He believes in mom, apple pie, and social insecurity. He's got brains, bluster, and pluck! He's a nihilistic socialist rogue insider with Tea Party Appeal."
Tying the announcement in with an early victory party on Sunday, June 5, 2016, from 2 to 4 PM, the Chuck Jones Center will host a "Daffy Duck for President" bumper sticker/campaign poster drawing party, with prizes and celebrations. Supporters can cast their vote for Daffy any time on the campaign website, http://www.daffyforpresident.org.
For contributions to the Center's "Daffy for President" PAC (Patently Angry Character), the contributor will receive campaign materials that include Chuck Jones's "Daffy Duck for President" book, a campaign button, and a "Daffy for President 2016" bumper sticker. Visit http://www.daffyforpresident.org to donate and for full details! All contributions benefit the educational and outreach programs of the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity, a 501(c)3 public charity in Orange County, California. The Center brings creativity programs to underserved children and adults in Los Angeles and Orange Counties and beyond.
"Daffy puts the 'wag' back in 'bandwagon,'" the announcement said. "He puts the 'otus' back in POTUS. He puts the 'ivity' back in 'creativity.' He's not only a problem solver, but he's a problem creator! And if this world needs anything these days, it's more problems! Ladies and Gentlemen—support the next leader of the Free (if not reasonably priced) World--Daffy Duck for President, 2016!"
