YouTuber, Elijah Daniel was inspired to run for Mayor and switch from being a YouTuber to a politician because of Donald Trump. He spent two days calling the US towns asking them to be their mayor before finding an easy way to Hell, which is the real name of the town in Michigan
“If Donald Trump, a reality star, can be our president there’s no reason why I can’t be a politician,” he tweeted.
Elijah said he had looked up “the easiest political office” he could hold before contacting towns with his request – and then paying cash to take a short-term job.
He paid £100 to become mayor for the day (something anyone visiting Hell can do) in a town to make a political statement against Donald Trump’s Muslim ban in the US. He issued a ban on heterosexuals entering the town of Hell during his short term as mayor, similar to one issued by Donal Trump when he started his presidentship.
“Growing up, I was always told that homosexuals would go to Hell,” he wrote in his amended ban.
“Now the heterosexuals are trying to take this from us too.”
However, less than an hour after sharing his ban on social media, Elijah told his 500,000 Twitter followers that he had been impeached from his post and was no longer the mayor of Hell. He later suggested Donald Trump should also be impeached as its the same thing.
A regular occurrence at the the office in Hell, are wannabe politician to be kicked out of office and is how everyone who paid their way into office ends up.
“Everyone who becomes mayor there gets impeached,” Elijah told Huffington Post after his short-lived political career.
“Most of the people who visit are same-sex couples who want to be married in Hell.”
His YouTube partner, Christine Sydelko, had celebrated her role in the process as “the first lady of Hell”
