And so, the tense wait for Election Day was finally upon us. We watched, we wept, we prayed; and we questioned why we never followed through with the Iron Sheik’s presidential campaign.
Obviously we all deserve a broken back for not supporting the Sheik when we really needed to.
And if anyone needed extra incentive to exercise their rights when Election Day finally arrived, the Legend had that covered as well.
And so the Iron Sheik’s army of faithful followers flocked to their ballot boxes, with some attempting to mend the country’s mistake of nominating such a sorry pair of Jabronis.
As November 8 reached its fateful end, as the entirety of the United States stayed glued to the election’s progress, the Sheik chose to indulge in something much more gratifying.
And it wasn’t long at all until every American also considered this very choice of action.
By the end of Election Night, the entire American population was doing one of two things: sitting in shocked suspense or drinking themselves into oblivion. We all know which of these options the Sheik chose.
God knows nothing else was making us happy that night.
The Legend must have dozed off shortly after that declaration, because he didn’t tweet again until the following day. By that time, the election results were in, and Donald J. Trump had become the president-elect of the United States of America.
But the reality of this fact did not completely sink in until the Iron Sheik officially announced it to the world.
It was true. After a nearly two-year-long feud that took the country to its highest highs and lowest lows, Trump applied his finisher, snapped Clinton in two, and gained a TKO victory over his opponent.
But though it seemed a bad dream to some, that morning began the nation’s very real journey under the leadership of Donald Trump. The best we could do was put our best foot forward, right?
Well, actually, it appeared that despite the conclusive end to a turbulent election, America still refused to stop acting like bunch of shameless jabronis come 2017.
A particularly trying event for America came on January 10th, when everyone lost their minds over a collection of unsubstantiated memos regarding Trump alleged ties to the Russian government. Perhaps the most peculiar of these allegations was that Trump once paid Russian prostitutes to urinate on his hotel room bed.
The Iron Sheik had but one question to ask.
A truly valid query at the dawn of Trump’s America.
And so, the nation turned its full attention to Donald Trump. Would the new president really make America great again? Would he be a president for all Americans? Or, in more pronounced terms…
Only time may answer that profound question.
I think that it was at this dire moment that we all again looked toward the Sheik, hoping that he humble the systems of political discourse that had grown overbearing over us, that is, if we first humbled ourselves first. We owed the Champ that much, and perhaps, so much more.
The Iron Sheik had overcome the insurmountable many times before 2017. He was an Olympic champion, a world champion, a hall of famer, a living legend, a hero, and he could surely help give us the strength to find our way.
And so, the Iron Sheik stepped up to inspire a lost and grieving nation.
When the time came for the president to place his hand on the Good Book and deliver the Oath, it was really the Iron Sheik’s words that would carry us confidently into the next chapter of America.
Only the following words could truly unite us as a single nation, all striving for a more fulfilling life and a better tomorrow.
This was the charge that wrapped up the 2016 presidential election. In those eventful two years, we saw perhaps the best and the worst of our humble country. We fought for what we believed in, we defended our rights, and we strived for the freedoms our founding fathers intended. But the one thing, the only thing that truly helped foster us through this landmark moment in history was the legendary words of the Iron Sheik.
The United States of the America remains forever grateful for the true Champion of the World.
