With an election year around the corner, everyone and their mother is announcing a Presidential Campaign for 2016. So far, the most talked about candidate (for all the wrong reasons) is Donald Trump.
Trump wasted no time in offending people and reminding us how crazy he is, with a Presidential Candidacy Announcement that included him claiming that most Mexican immigrants to the U.S. are drug dealers, rapists and “some, I assume, are good people” .
All political views aside, I hope both sides can agree that Trump might be the craziest candidate in this election…. So far.
If Donald is allowed to put his hat in the ring, there’s some other people that I think should consider running:
An important duty of the President is informing the public on important issues in our country. Who would be better at keeping us all updated on current events than the man who taught us all how awesome science is? Plus, the Presidential Anthem is getting pretty outdated, I think it’s time we replace “Hail to the Chief” with this.
Let’s be honest, Arnold is an inspiration. He came to the U.S., became a world famous weight lifter, award winning actor, and a GOVERNOR. That’s all pretty impressive when you consider the fact that English is his second language. We need that kind of determination in the White House. Plus, it would be great for comedians, because they wouldn’t have to learn and practice a new impression.
If Shia LeBeouf proved one thing this year, it’s how to give a motivational speech. Similar to Trump, we didn’t need evidence that Shia was out of his mind, but, he did a good job of reminding us. Let’s put this insane child-star to work before he ends moving to Mars or something.
No, not me, I mean THE Brian Williams. So what if he lied to the world about an involvement in a middle eastern war, isn’t that what the President is supposed to do anyways? Also, if Brian doesn’t find time to run for President, we all hope he gets a chance to spit another rap.
If T-Swift is good at one thing, it is getting things done. Last month she publicly complained about Apple Music not paying artists for streams from free trials, and they changed it THE NEXT DAY. If she can bully one of the biggest corporations in our country, I’m sure she could get Congress to do whatever she wants. Oh, let’s not forget when she ACCIDENTALLY topped the Canadian iTunes Charts with an 8 second mp3 of nothing but white noise.
Hologram Theodore Roosevelt
If we can get Hologram Tupac AND Hologram Michael Jackson, why not put a Holo-President in the White House?
Ron Swanson is the ultimate American. He already has some famous quotes that could easily become campaign slogans, like:
“America: The only country that matters. If you want to experience other ‘cultures,’ use an atlas or a ham radio.”
“There is only one bad word: taxes.”
Or my favorite:
“Give 100%. 110% is impossible. Only idiots recommend that.”
Why have a President who is all talk and no walk, when we can have a President who is all walk and no talk?
