15 People/Things Who Should Run For President Instead Of Trump

2016 could possibly be the year that the world ends. Mass gun violence, England is no longer part of the UK, intense terrorism ... and a reality TV star could possibly be America's next president. For the sake of being humorous (and completely serious), here are 20 people and things who should run for President instead of Donald Trump.

1. Harambe

In June of this year, an innocent gorilla at the Cincinnati Zoo lost his life after a child stumbled into his enclosure. The internet erupted in protest, and Twitter (as per usual) came forward to offer a pleothora of memes to honor his memory. Harambe would have been, and would be, a much better president than Donald Trump.

2. Cthulhu


Famous author H.P. Lovecraft, known for his horror stories, brought Cthulhu to life in his story "The Call of Cthulhu," which he published in 1928. Part man, part octopus, and part dragon, Cthulhu is worshiped by cultists within the story. In my humble opinion, he's only a little misunderstood, and would shine if given the chance to prove himself. (Or he could destroy the entire world ... who knows.)

3. A Bean Burrito

Bean burritos are God's gift to the world. With a bean burrito as our president, there would be no war. There would be no hunger. There would be no poverty. There would only be free burritos for all. And Taco Bells would be open 24 hours, seven days a week. That would be beautiful.

4. Voldemort


Throw a fake mustache on him and he's a pretty lovable guy. He wouldn't build a wall, and he wouldn't call women "pigs" or make fun of periods. He could quite possibly, however, attempt to get rid of Muggles in which case it's every man for himself...

5. SpongeBob

Everyone's favorite sea sponge would make a fantastic president. He would fill the White House with his sing-song laugh, the smell of Krabby Patties, and possibly its very jellyfish field. Not to mention the fact that Patrick would make an amazing VP. Could you imagine?

6. The Guy From Ancient Aliens

Granted his meme has come and gone, but his hair and immense faith in extraterrestrial life will live on in our hearts forever. During his presidency, I could see a high tech megaphone placed directly atop the White House, calling out for the Aliens to return to Earth. And if he lost his campaign? It was the aliens.

7. Michael Scott

America would definitely be great again if Michael ran our country the way he ran Dunder Mifflin. The return of "that's what she said" jokes in full force is exactly what our country needs to get back on its feet. Birthday parties for everyone planned by the National Party Planning Committee (NPPC for short) would boost moral. He'd have my vote for sure.

8. Red Forman


Red Forman stole the hearts of our generation with his sarcastic and witty comments. He is us - we are one. His foreign policy would no doubt be air tight, and his domestic policy would include things like the death penalty turning into "shoving a foot up your ass." I'm sure that would help cut down on crime.

9. Seth Rogen

An obvious choice for president, Seth Rogen has stolen our hearts in hilarious movies such as "Neighbors" and "Knocked Up." He's the perfect mix of immature and tasteful, which made his movie "The Interview" walk precariously down the line between in-good-taste and possibly-starting-another-world-war.

10. President Snow


Sure, President Snow is responsible for the death of hundreds of innocent teenagers... and he pitted districts against themselves to destroy unity... and he was simply an all around horrible guy... but, he has presidential experience (unlike Trump), and he's quite the charismatic.

11. A Pug


Look at how cute they are! With their smushed little faces! And their cute little feet! And this one is wearing a Batman onesie! I would definitely vote for a pug in a Batman onesie.

12. Morgan Freeman


If Morgan Freeman can narrate the "March of the Penguins" and play God, he can definitely run the United States of America. That's correlation equalling causation if I ever saw it.

13. Ron Swanson


Ron is everything I want to be: sassy, intelligent, and funny. He's also everything I am: antisocial, hates stupid people, and does whatever he wants anyway. I would definitely be first in line to vote if his name was on the ballot.

14. A Rattata

A Rattata as president would be one of the greatest things to ever happen to America. They're reliable, everywhere, and if you catch enough you can evolve a fairly decent Raticate ... which you can then transfer because you have all the XP you need and the Raticate is basically useless.

15. Kanye West


I'm not saying that I would vote for him if he actually ran for president in 2020, but I'm also not saying that I wouldn't vote for him either.

Donald Trump is not the candidate for me. He's not the candidate for a lot of people. He's a racist misogynist who doesn't understand that there is more to being the president than simply lounging around the Oval Office. It takes thoughtfulness, open mindedness, a care for the American people, and dedication.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
