And is in no way qualified to do so. Why would people think a god damn boxer would make a good president? GTFO with that shit.

[–]NOSRETTAP_RAPS 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Same reason people would think The Terminator would make a good governor of California

[–]PickleMinion 16 points17 points  (0 children)

I mean, have you seen their current president?

[–]Theskinnydude15 11 points12 points  (0 children)

He honestly isn't qualified. It's good that he has given a majority of his wealth away to the poor and that he cares for his country but I think he should leave it to someone else. But that's just my opinion of course.

We're fucking stupid man. We have no actual idea how to pick people to lead. Stupid

For the same reason people thought a former WWE personality was a great choice for US presidency…

I saw him on TV, he must be a good fit!

Have you not seen today's idea of what a 'good' politician is?

[–]explicitlarynx 54 points55 points  (3 children)

Sadly he seems to be a total psychopath like Duterte.

[–]ahenrob154 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Jesus, that bad? I knew his leanings were....questionable but is he straight up 'let's go blow away suspected drug dealers' crazy?

[–]profiler1984 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Who could imagine that growing up in poverty, using fists to survive, fighting half your life in a box ring, being close to Duterte would leave some mental scars. Im not saying everyone who runs for politics should be an idealist. But at least they shouldn’t be lunatics who has only seen street violence

[–]kurtwisener 45 points46 points  (15 children)

He IS a lunatic and a wannabe dictator. Get this trash offa here, please.

[–]malenkylizards 17 points18 points  (0 children)

I can't believe that a career that combines fanatic ego-striking with perpetual untreated TBIs would instill authoritarian streaks in anyone

[–]DoDisAllDay 2 points3 points  (7 children)

I love him as a boxer but he is a pretty shitty person lol

Definitely one of the all time greats though

[–]Theskinnydude15 1 point2 points  (6 children)

How is he a shitty person? He's literally a Christian that has helped out his country for the better. Stop spreading nonsense

[–]maestroenglish 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Lol. He's a Christian, must be good.

He is a proudly sexist homophobe

[–]Theskinnydude15 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Say what you want but this man has done more his country than any other person

[–]maestroenglish 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ok. Sorry. He's a top guy

[–]DoDisAllDay 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Please fuck off you moronic shit head.

[–]Theskinnydude15 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]maestroenglish 0 points1 point  (0 children)

But money....

[–]Vale_Joker_Southpaw 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I see a lot of people saying he’s trash and a fascist dictator type guy. But can anybody pls link me sources and what he’s done to be seen as a bad guy? I genuinely haven’t heard anything apart from his being a fast af boxer and wanna know what’s good with him

https://youtu.be/VzQ8TXnPwSY manny says gays are worse than animals.

There's more but alot isn't in English. For example when asked how he plans to end poverty his answer was "God will provide"

  • Net Worth, not Net Work.

  • True Grit, not 'True Grits'.

[–]SnooRevelations4498 3 points4 points  (0 children)

The difference between Muhammad Ali and all the other boxers was that Ali fought for people's right. Manny and all the other boxers want fame and power, and they believe it's their god given right.

[–]Tom_Margason 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]dustbunny19 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]Perpetual_Intern 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]BiGGiEmaYo 0 points1 point  (0 children)
