    For those who don't know, Dan Bilzerian is a guy who got rich playing poker, and now lives in a huge house with at least 20 women. He's a self-admitted sex addict and his lifestyle pretty much revolves around having sex with as many women as possible. However, to his credit, as far as I know none of the women have accused him of sexual assault, although he has been sued by two women for other issues. In addition to this, he also seems to be a big fan of both guns and marijuana, meaning that he would not fit neatly into the Democrat or Republican party. He seems to be pretty convinced that he will be president one day, even though the only reason he wants to run is just because it would be a cool thing to check off the bucket list. So, my question is, if he ran for president, would he succeed? I don't think it's likely, but then again, we elected Trump. This guy probably wouldn't be any worse.

    Dan Bilzerian seems to me like he'd be a good Libertarian Presidential candidate, who if does as well as other Libertarians having campaigned for President, would get one percent of the popular vote with zero electoral college votes.

    Dan Bilzerian allegedly assaulted model Vanessa Castano whom he allegedly kicked in the face. He also allegedly injured porn actress Janice Griffith whom he throw off a roof. Perhaps, Dan Blizerian's purported use of violence against women might not bode well for his chances of being POTUS.

    Never heard of him before. At least most people had heard of Trump, as his name had been a household word for decades. The media indulged Trump with a good deal of limelight while he soaked up every bit of it. They may not like the monster that they created, but he's still their monster.

    As for this Bilzerian guy, he's going to have to find his own limelight and get some more name recognition.

    Maybe he could get the Secret Service to be all women like Muammar Gaddafi had.

    He sounds more libertine than libertarian.

    Perhaps, although they'd probably want a family man. He'd have to have a picture of him and his family - along with a family dog. Nixon managed to save his sagging political career with his "Checkers" speech.

    Suppose saying that better suits his image than noting he got rich off daddy's trust fund.

    Maybe, but not necessarily. The guy openly admits to living with two dozen women at a time, having sex with multiple women every day, and all of his instagram photos he is with 5-10 chicks on top of him or grabbing him. He says marriage and dating are pointless. In addition, he also is an active user of psychedelic drugs. I doubt most republicans would go for all of that, but then again you never know. One thing I admire about him is his honesty. He doesn't pretend to be someone he's not. But that's probably the reason he'll never be president. Kennedy was very promiscuous too, but he tried to hide it and pretend to be a family man with a wife.

    Hell no. He sounds like a crank and should be in rehab for gambling and sex addictions. You don't want impulsive and unstable people leading the country, especially ones prone to violence. I want this country to get over the Trump nightmare, not go further down the toilet.

    Hmmm. I certainly am not saying that I would support him for president. However, he is not a gambling addict and stopped gambling once he won big as far as I know. I don't know whether he is impulsive and unstable or not, but he does not come across that way in interviews.

    Extreme promiscuity as you've described is impulsive behavior and indicative of psychological issues.

    Possibly, but not necessarily. It may be that he just has a really high sex drive and lots of women find him attractive. As he has said in other videos, most guys would have as much sex as he does if they *could* get laid that often, but most guys simply can't get laid that often.

    No, they wouldn't. Most people have lives outside of ****ing and also desire emotional intimacy, including men (how shocking that men are human and not see robots).

    In his defense, he claims that in the first instance, the woman that he allegedly assaulted first pushed another woman off of a five foot stage, pulled her hair and repeatedly punched her, and so he was just doing whatever he could to stop her from assaulting the other woman. The second instance you also took out of context. He threw her off a roof into a swimming pool as part of a photo-shoot for a magazine that she fully consented to be in. However, she slipped and broke her foot because she accidentally hit the side of the pool.

    I'm not necessarily saying that he was not in the wrong. I just think that you should put the allegations in more context before making the claim that he is violent towards women.

    What makes you think he does not desire emotional intimacy? It's possible to be polyamorous and emotionally intimate. He just doesn't want a monogamous relationship. Nothing wrong with that.

    Sleeping with huge numbers of people isn't polyamory. That's just being a ****.

    In your subjective opinion, apparently.

    Call it what you want but it's not polyamory or at least what polyamory is defined as. Polyamory is when a person has more than one romantic relationship at the same time. It's not about sex, whereas you said in the first post of this thread that "he's a self-admitted sex addict and his lifestyle pretty much revolves around having sex with as many women as possible". So I don't understand why you're arguing with me.

    I just don't see anything wrong with him having sex with lots of women or even being a sex addict, as long as they all consent and he's honest with all of them. It's a little excessive, but to each their own. Again, I don't think the guy would be a good president, but I don't think it's our place to judge his lifestyle. You sound like a fundie Christian prude who doesn't like the LGBTQ community because of their sexual lifestyle. Cant you see your own hypocrisy?
