7 Annoying TV Characters That Would Make Better Presidents Than Donald Trump

As most of you know, billionaire Donald Trump announced his candidacy for president of the United States at the beginning of this summer. It took me quite a while to realize this wasn’t a joke. The attention from the media on the businessman has been insane so far – everyone has an opinion on Trump, myself included. I’m not here to shit on anyone’s opinions, but I can't even imagine living in a country with a man like Trump leading us. But to shed a little bit of humor into the bleakness of politics, I thought I would create a list of obnoxious, fictional characters from TV shows who would still be better than the Trumpster as president.

1. Ross Geller from "Friends"

Yes, the whiniest "friend" is preferred to Donald Trump. Sure, he's judgmental and unpleasant, but he's into dinosaurs. Which is a plus in my book.

2. Kimmy Gibbler from "Full House"

I grew up loving "Full House," but every time DJ's bestie appeared on my screen, I'd have to turn the tube down just so I wouldn't get a headache. But you can't say Kimmy wouldn't at least be an entertaining president, can you?

3. Mark Brendanawicz from "Parks and Recreation"

I'm a huge "Parks and Rec" fan, but even I sometimes forget Mark was ever on the show. With almost every character on "Parks" being interesting and unique, there was bound to be a useless character in the mix. But the man did work in government, so he might know a thing or two.

4. Piper Chapman from "Orange is the New Black"

Raise your hand if you've ever found yourself wandering out of the room or checking Facebook every time there was a Piper scene on the Netflix dramedy. Chapman has only gotten more annoying each season, and it doesn't help that the other inmates are just far more compelling. On the other hand, Piper has shown she can be manipulative, and that is certainly a prized trait to have in politics.

5. Sheldon Cooper from "The Big Bang Theory"

Don't get me wrong: I didn't hate Sheldon at the beginning of the series. But this character has progressively gotten more intolerable each season. If I have to hear his smug voice uttering "Bazinga" one more time, I might lose it. But Cooper is a physicist, so he's smart to say the least.

6. Rick Grimes from "The Walking Dead"

More likely than not, I’m the minority in this one, but I can’t stand Rick Grimes. His wife, Lori, and his son, Carl, aren’t very likable either. Grimes is bossy, at times insufferable, and I wouldn’t be surprised if he were the next to get bit by a walker. But he’s carried his own so far, and if he can be a leader in a zombie apocalypse, he can probably be a leader wherever needed.

7. Any of the Minions from "Despicable Me"

I know these little tic-tac abominations are movie characters, not TV characters, but they are by far the most annoying creatures on this list. I loathe the minions and am patiently waiting for the day they disappear. These mini-twinkies have already taken over the world, so it wouldn't surprise me to see one in office. Plus, I'd rather hear a minion's unintelligible babbling than Trump's any day.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
