Can you tell the difference between the President of The United States and Michael Gary Scott?

Here 20 Quotes From Michael G. Scott And Donald J. Trump — Good Luck Guessing Who Said What

Despite your political opinions, you can't deny that Donald Trump has a way with words. He knows how to make you laugh, cry, and cry laughing. As an avid "The Office" fan, I can't help but see the similarities in our current president and the president of paper, Michael Scott. Now, before you click away, angry that I've starting comparing Trump to Michael Scott, let me clear something up. The similarities begin and end with their unique way of speaking.

So whether you're a Trump supporter or simply a fan of Michael Scott, here's a challenge for you. Can you distinguish between the work of a comedy writer and the President of the United States?

Answers are at the very bottom of the article. Best of luck!

"We have the worst laws we have ever seen." 

OK, first question, who is "we?" And why is it used twice? Is this an attack on the American political system or the ramblings of a regional manager?

"Wikipedia is the best thing ever. Anyone in the world can write anything they want about any subject. So you know you are getting the best possible information."

Clearly the work of someone who doesn't know how to do research... Fake news or another internet scam Michael Scott has fallen victim to?

"People love me. And you know what? I've been very successful. Everybody loves me."

I think we can agree that both men have been very successful. Trump is the President of The United States, and Michael Scott started writing his book "Somehow I Manage."

"A person who is very flat-chested is very hard to be a 10."

Honestly... Michael or Trump? It's hard to say.

"I don't hate it. I just don't like it at all, and it's terrible." 

I think we've all said things like this.

"Inventory is boring. In the islands they don't make you do stuff like take inventory. Why do you think so many businesses moved to the Caymans?" 

Bored office workers unite! But, who knows? Our president is also a successful business owner.

"The worst thing a man can do is go bald. Never let yourself go bald."

Hmm... neither man is bald. But one is much closer than the other.

"I guess I've been working so hard, I forgot what it's like to be hardly working."

Don't we all, sometimes.

"I have a great relationship with African Americans, as you possibly have heard. I just have great respect for them. And they like me. I like them."

Which dynamic duo: Stanley and Michael or Obama and Trump?

"Ok, too many different words coming at me from too many different sentences."

The English language can be confusing... especially when you don't know any other languages.

"I think I am actually humble. I think I'm much more humble than you would understand."

Someone doesn't quite understand what "humble" means...

"Is there something besides "Mexican' you prefer to be called? Something less offensive?"

This seems a bit to "nice" for one of the choices...

"It's simply beyond words. It's incalculable." 

Maybe Michael talking about his relationship with Jan... or maybe Trump's statement on the size of his hands.

"I have never seen a thin person drinking Diet Coke."

Have you?

"Robert Pattinson should not take back Kristen Stewart. She cheated on him like a dog and will do it again -- just watch. He can do much better!"

Obviously he's a HUGE "Twilight" fan.

"Eventually we're going to get something done and it's going to be really, really good." 

Is this the government speaking or a mid-range paper company?

"I captivated the guy who captivated 1000 guys."

Who could Trump captivate? Who could Michael captivate?

"Sometimes I'll start a sentence and I don't even know where it's going. I just hope I find it along the way."

I think George Bush did this too...

"You know the funny thing, I don't get along with rich people. I get along with the middle class and the poor people better than I get along with the rich people."

So does that mean he's rich... or poor?

"It's one of the wettest we've ever seen from the standpoint of water."

"That's what she said."

Sometimes, in the face of raging political debates, touchy conversations, and harsh exchanges you just have to take a step back and laugh. See the humor in a "humorless" situation.

So next time your uncle, mother, grandmother, or grandfather gets bent out of shape about politics... remember this quiz. And maybe, if you're lucky they'll play along with you.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
