President Oscar De La Hoya?!?! Don’t scoff — the boxing legend says he’s “very seriously” considering running for the highest office in the land … and he’s already putting together an exploratory team.
“I am actually very, very serious and I strongly feel that if a Kanye West can do it and announce and maybe tease the world that he would maybe one day wanna run for president, why not me?”
Obviously, Oscar has no experience as an elected politician — but as ODLH pointed out on “TMZ Live,” neither did Donald Trump. Oscar says if his exploratory team comes back with good numbers, he’ll make it official and begin his campaign.
TMZ notes that De La Hoya “definitely believes” in standing for the national anthem, which may indicate his party allegiance. GOP voters might have a problem with his history of cross-dressing, which he now blames on a cocaine addiction.
