O’Malley does freestyle rap: ‘Guns, guns, guns, I don’t like them guns’


Former Gov. Martin O’Malley spit fire at the National Rifle Association during a freestyle rap released late Tuesday.

“The NRA hates me because I don’t like guns,” he rapped during an interview with “Off The Record.”

{mosads}“Guns, guns, guns, I don’t like them guns,” O’Malley told hosts Xavier Rotnofsky and Rohit Mandalapu.

“If you look at the polls you might get the impression, that president of the United States may not be next profession,” the Democratic White House hopeful said. “Just FYI bro, you’re so dang wrong, soon my polls will be higher than Cheech and Chong.”

O’Malley also took on Democratic presidential rivals Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), as well as former Gov. Mike Huckabee (R-Ark.).

“I’m Martin O’Malley, please vote for me, not Clinton or Sanders or Huckabee,” he said of the other presidential candidates.

O’Malley’s performance Tuesday night was part of a wide-ranging satirical interview with “Off The Record.”

The former Maryland governor revealed that Abraham Lincoln ranks among his favorite former presidents. He also said he would never repeal ObamaCare, even if “humans could never die, were invincible and could never sick.”

O’Malley additionally unveiled his preferred choice for a potential Secret Service codename.

“I’d prefer Eagle,” he said. “The Eagle has left. The Eagle has arrived. I’d like to say Eagle.”

The Democrat also praised GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson for his past work as a neurosurgeon.

“I would say Dr. Carson,” O’Malley responded when asked if he would let Carson, Dr. Oz or Dr. Seuss operate on his brain. “He was good at that.”

Mandalapu and Rotnofsky closed the interview by offering O’Malley $10 in pennies as a campaign contribution.

O’Malley has made his record of progressive polices in Maryland a central tenet of his Oval Office bid next year. He has frequently promised stricter firearms regulations in the wake of several mass shootings earlier this year.

O’Malley has struggled for traction with voters since launching his White House run last summer.

He presently ranks last in the 2016 Democratic field with 4.4 percent, according to the latest RealClearPolitics average of samplings.
