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.

ANSWERS: 1 - Trump; 2 - Michael; 3 - Trump; 4 - Trump; 5 - Michael; 6 - Michael; 7 - Trump; 8 - Michael; 9 - Trump; 10 - Michael; 11 - Trump; 12 - Michael; 13 - Michael; 14 - Trump; 15 - Trump; 16 -Trump; 17 - Michael; 18 - Michael; 19 - Trump; 20 - Trump

In our patriarchal society, men hide from their feelings, but toxic masculinity is literally killing men. They swallow the pain and move on so that they can look, feel, and act "tough."

But, strength is derived from asking for help and voicing your struggle and, trust me, working on your mental health is one hell of a struggle. The real way to "man up" is to acknowledge the downfalls in unjust societal norms. Mental health problems do not mean that a man is weak, they are neurologically-based disorders that require professional treatment.

Sorry, But 'I Don’t Care About Politics' Is Not A Valid Excuse For NOT Voting

The younger generation of voters is so crucial to the upcoming election because our vote is going to shape the world that we are about to enter as adults.


When I ask my friends if they are voting this term most of them respond with "no" followed by an explanation of "I don't care enough," "It doesn't affect me," or "I don't keep up with politics," etc. I get it, as a college student I know that there are many other things to be concerned about like school, relationships, work, and friends. I also understand that keeping up with politics can seem like trying to keep up with an over-exaggerated reality show that has way too many seasons. Not to mention most news stations and websites are biased so it's hard to decipher if what you hear is true or fake.

However, despite all of this annoyance, as the next generation of Americans, we have to remember that we owe it to ourselves, our families, and to our futures to care.

Two of my favorite things in life are reading and books. Obviously, they go hand-in-hand. In my life, I've realized that there is nothing better than learning about the current world or getting fully immersed in another world. Reading can inspire, teach, and entertain you.

For me, the feeling of opening a book and smelling that fresh book smell can't compete with anything else.

20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

Any ally of the community needs to be reading these incredible reads.


I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

I Asked 46 Women What They Thought About The Term 'Plus-Size', And Here's What They Had To Say

It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.


We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.

For years, the body positivity movement has pushed for the acceptance of all marginalized body types not represented or celebrated in the media. Recently, we've gotten better at appreciating and accepting all body types, but one thing that's still lingering is the stigma of body image in the fashion industry — more specifically, the term "plus-size."
