11 Celebs Who Should Save Us All And Run For President in 2020
Because if Trump can win, surely anyone can.
It's happened. The people have spoken and somehow Donald Trump is officially set to succeed Barack Obama as the 45th President of the USA.
This highly controversial turn of events understandably hasn't been met with joy from a large portion of Americans, thanks mainly to the contentious sexist behaviours, homophobic beliefs and racist sentiments Trump expressed during his campaign.
At this point not much can be done about his Presidency and so many people are already looking forwards to the 2020 election with high hopes for change.
But if Trump can get elected it makes you think that anyone can - potentially including this list of celebs who we'd not only like to see take control, but who we can't help think would probably do a way better job...
1. Kanye West
Well he's already declared he's running for 2020 and the dude could definitely take on Trump when it comes to the mind vomit tweet rants. And actually, he has some pretty sound ideas if stuff like this is an indication of his policy...
2. Kim Kardashian West
We know she probably wouldn't want to go up against her own husband, but the woman is a self-made media mogul and we can't help thinking she has much more power than Kanye to mobilise the masses to get out there and vote.
She's an astute businesswoman, knows how to defend herself and her own in a spat (hey Taylor, what's good?) AND she's due a comeback. COME ON KIM, WE NEED YOU
3. Kerry Washington
Never have we needed Olivia Pope more. She basically already runs Washington (hello, have you not seen Scandal?) and let's be honest: she does a better job of it than actual President Fitzgerald. Hate to say it but he's a bit of a wet blanket.
And if that woman went up against Trump or any other bloke she'd probably take him down with a simple barbed comment and a swish of her perfectly pressed power lady coat.
4. Harry Styles
Because you know he would never ever talk about grabbing any woman by their pussy. He has way too much respect for ladies, their bodies and also cats - as pretty much any human you'd want representing you politically should have.
5. Chrissy Teigen
She is queen of Trump shutdowns and anyone who can do that with such grace and simple eloquence deserves a place on the throne.
(What do you mean America doesn't have a thrown? FINE, the Oval Office if you're going to be pedantic)
6. Katy Perry
If her consistent campaigning for Hillary didn't prove that this woman is politically awake, nothing will. And at this point, we've never felt more like a plastic bag drifting through the wind and consequently landing in a large pile of dog shit.
Having a president who once shot whipped cream out of a spinny bra also seems way less ludicrous than Trump getting voted in.
She's the queen and we all know it. There is honestly no one we'd trust more to inform our political, social, econimic and sartorial choices and America really should too.
Actually forget President, we'll have her for World Leader too, please.
8. The Cookie Monster
Because if Donald Trump isn't seen as a joke, we're not sure how the Cookie Monster can be seen as one either.
Plus we personally find his economic and social policies of cookies, cookies and more cookies way less offensive than that time Trump said he wanted to build a wall between the US and Mexico and genuinely voiced the opinion saying Mexico "are sending people that have lots of problems, and they are bringing those problems to us. They are bringing drugs, and bringing crime, and their rapists."
9. Lin-Manuel Miranda
Seriously, HOW GREAT would a musical campaign be? You couldn't not vote for that and particularly if it featured a casual rap or five of him shading Trump's direct quotes, including that time he called Black Lives Matter movement 'trouble' and basically denied the existence of climate change.
And because as Hamilton taught us; immigrants? They get the job done.
10. Michelle Obama
If you take any one of these seriously, take Michelle's. The woman is a a powerhouse, has bags of experience and knows how to throw serious sideye.
What's not to like?
11. LITERALLY ANYONE ELSE
LITERALLY ANYONE. Anyone that isn't Trump and we're with them.
