Remember that time when Kanye West threatened to run for President of the United States at the MTV Video Music Awards? Less than 2 years left to see if he was kidding or being a total Kanye. But while we’re waiting, let’s speculate on what would happen if more celebs decided to actually take part in the Presidential Race.
I mean, if Trump can become POTUS, sky is the limit! What’s the big deal about being the President of the United States? Granted, none of these celebs will know what to do but at least they’ll be able to stall the conversation using those countless years of practice in from of the cameras.
Get ready to see some superfluous reasons why these 9 celebs should run for President!
1. Tom Hanks
Wouldn’t it be fun to have the dude from “BIG” and “Forest Gump” as the President? I guess, the world leaders would at least respect him.
2. Ellen DeGeneres
Lately the American government feel like it would benefit from a woman’s touch, and Ellen here can do that and even more!
3. Bill Nye
What better candidate than a scientist? And a celebrity scientist at that. Kids love him, women want him, men want to be him.
4. Leonardo DiCaprio
Leo may have finally gotten his long-awaited Oscar, but what’s a petty old statuette in comparison to becoming the world’s most powerful person? Do it, Leo!
5. Robert Downey Jr.
We already know all the ins and outs of RDJ’s past, his battle with drug addiction, and alcohol, so there’s no new “dirt” on him. He’s basically going to be like a saint among the sea of sinners.
6. Dwayne Johnson
Do you even need a reason? It’s the Rock. He’ll get s$#t done while putting smile on our faces. Plus, if anyone tries to assault him, oh boy, they’d be in for a world of pain!
7. Angelina Jolie
There are a handful of people as iconic as Jolie. She’s basically like a loving mother who can also kick arse if someone messes with her children. Yes, and yes!
8. Morgan Freeman
Who wouldn’t want to have the voice of God himself as their country leader? Mr. Freeman is a no-brainer!
9. Oprah Winfrey
And of course we could not but include Oprah in our list.
