On May 12th, Willie Nelson appears to have accepted a previous offer made by Roseanne Barr to be her Vice Presidential running-mate for the Green Party nomination. He tweeted, “I would be happy to run w u After thinking about it awhile it kept sounding better Are u still interested? Love, Willie”.
Barr quickly shared this tweet around and then made some additional statements of Twitter of her own, announcing the selection of her Vice Presidential running mate. However, Mr. Nelson appears to have re-thought his stance and later backtracked, saying on Twitter, “Im not ready 2 get n2 politics I have stayed away this long I am content 2 sit on the sidelines & criticize every1 else.” and “Good luck with your campaign. Love, Willie”. Barr pleaded with Nelson, via Twitter, to reconsider and to contact her privately.
Perhaps Mr. Nelson discovered that it is mathematically impossible for Barr to win the Green Party nomination?
