Andrew Yang Planning to Use a 3D Hologram to Hold Campaign Rallies

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang revealed this week that he`s planning to use a 3D hologram to hold campaign rallies in multiple cities at the same time."

Concert performances by holograms of music legends Prince and Michael Jackson have generated controversy and excitement, but nobody is breaking into a moonwalk over the prospect of a hologram of Yang delivering a stump campaign speech.

Yang has the charisma of a boiled head of cabbage, and I wouldn`t walk a couple of yards to hear the real Yang speak, never mind a holographic representation of the low-energy presidential candidate.

The entrepreneur, philanthropist and presidential candidate plans to deliver a recorded version of his stump speech to crowds in battleground states to save money in travel costs.

This gimmick may save Yang travel costs, but a dozen Yang holograms is as exciting as a full-body massage by a dozen Rosie O`Donnell lookalikes.

Prior to the hologram publicity stunt Yang was known primarily for his Universal Basic Income scheme: a guaranteed payment of $1,000 per month to all U.S citizens over the age of 18.

I guess when you have zero name recognition, no campaign war chest to speak of, and the show biz appeal of a cruise ship entertainer, you have to rely on gimmicks and publicity stunts. But an Andrew Yang hologram? Bitch please!
