“Our America needs a new support.”
A little more than a year is left before the next presidential election in the USA – the candidates have already started their campaigns. Against the background of serious political statements and promises, The Hard Drive portal launched a comic action : a note appeared on the site about Ace Watkins, “the first Gamer who entered the presidential race”.
America, it’s time for Gamers to become president. My name is Ace Watkins and I am ready to be this Gamer. I urge you to watch my first video and retweet. The future of our country depends on it.
In about a day, more than 15 thousand people subscribed to Watkins on Twitter , and his posts now collect up to several thousand likes. In tweets, he makes fun of the standard promises of real candidates and the current political agenda.
So, for example, Watkins emphasizes that he is the first “Gamer” (with a capital letter), who entered the election race. At one time, it seemed that Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton acted – as the first African American and female respectively, nominated from one of the two largest parties.

Democrats and Republicans are just two sides of the same coin. We need something new. We need a gamer president.

Billionaires – imbalance, and they need ponerfit.
Not a single candidate running for President has even mentioned A Song of Ice and Fire. I will negotiate with George RR Martin and get America books 6 and 7 during my first term. We will heal this great nation from the pain caused by Game of Thrones season 8.— Ace Watkins (@GamerPres2020) July 9, 2019
None of the presidential candidates mentioned the “Song of Ice and Fire”. I agree with George Martin that the sixth and seventh books come out during my first term. We need to heal our glorious nation from the pain generated by the eighth season of the Game of Thrones.

I always play for the healer, even though everyone knows that I am the best shooter. I promise to do the same for America.
Like all real candidates, Watkins, among other things, pays attention to the most painful areas for the US society – education and medicine.

Republicans and Democrats have drank the kool-aid when it comes to politics. Well I've drank the bath water. And now that I've seen the inside of a hospital for myself, I'm ready to lead our nation to stronger healthcare.— Ace Watkins (@GamerPres2020) July 8, 2019
Republicans and Democrats drank sweetened water when it comes to politics. And I drank water from the bath . Now, after I myself have seen the hospital from the inside, I am ready to lead our country to better health care.

I spoke to a little girl on a campaign stop yesterday and she said to me, “Mr Watkins, why can I play Destruction Derby 1 on my PS Classic but not Xenogears?” and I did not have an answer for her.— Ace Watkins (@GamerPres2020) July 8, 2019
