11 Popular Political Figures Described By Disney Characters

Politics and Disney seem like an odd pairing but I think it'd be hilarious to pair them up. Spoiler alert: it totally is.

Disney movies are probably one of my favorite things on this planet. Politics and Disney seem like an odd pairing, but I think it'd be hilarious to pair them up. Spoiler alert: Politics and Disney are totally hilarious when paired together. These are my pairings, for your viewing pleasure. Let me know if you get abs from laughing so hard. I did.

1. Donald Trump as Governor Ratcliffe from "Pocahontas."

This dude is racist AF. Nuff said.

No, but really, am I the only one who sees the similarities? I think not. Power hungry, rich AF, and giant douchebags? Check. All categories match. I'm convinced they are the same person.

2. Mike Pence as Jafar from "Aladdin."

This dude was legit evil. Like has no soul. And he scared me. Pence scares me more than Trump, hands down. Pence even has the same crazy eyes. Like these dudes freak me out. With good reason. I mean, conversion therapy? Get the fuck out, asshole. Clearly, you are the one with the issues, much like Jafar.

3. Hillary Clinton as Elsa from "Frozen."

I think this is legit a perfect fit because Hillary is queen. Maybe she is an ice queen but she doesn't care, and she's a freaking boss. She is a strong woman who may seem cold but really, she is just a woman who gets what she wants. She doesn't need no man to be fabulous.

4. Bill Clinton as Flynn Rider from "Rapunzel."

He's a play boy who seems to have reformed. He reminds me of Flynn, but the Flynn from the beginning of the movie. Not the sweet guy who will die for love. Bill is a fuck boy, through and through. He only does things to benefit himself.

5. Sarah Palin as Snow White from "Snow White."

Actual footage of Sarah Palin...^^^^

She exhibits all the classic "homemaker" characteristics. If that floats your boat, then cool, but she is by no means a feminist. And she's a little crazy, which also makes her air-headed, but who am I to judge? They are the classic and traditional woman. Honestly, It's annoying. I need strong women role models, not these chicks.

6. Barack Obama as Mufasa from "The Lion King."

He's wise but in the end he gets killed (Obama, metaphorically) by his haters who were jealous of him. Sounds pretty fitting to me. Trump also = Scar. Everyone tries to ruin Obama's legacy with anger and hate but look at all the GOOD he did. Dude is wise and a damn good speaker, just like the BELOVED Mufasa.

7. Michelle Obama as Moana from "Moana."

I love Moana and I think she fits Michelle Obama well because this lady gets what she wants. She doesn't give up or let go of her dreams. She just puts some of her life on hold because it's best for her people...just like MICHELLE! I love how Moana breaks out on her own and is the brains of the operations with Maui. These ladies are goals. Michelle for President 2020! Just kidding. *whispers* Not really.

8. Paul Ryan as Kuzco from "Emperor's New Groove."

Dude is a coward, like legit full of himself, but will push the blame onto others or dodge the serious issues. He never realizes his ways like Kuzco, though some would say Kuzco never does. I don't have hope for Paul Ryan either.

9. Bernie Sanders as Rafiki from "The Lion King."

Bernie! My man. He BEATS sense into people, though for some reason everyone ignores him...like SIMBA does for Rafiki and ALL AMERICANS with Bernie. #justsaying

10. Elizabeth Warren as Nala from "The Lion King."

These ladies stand up for what they believe in and will not take shit from anyone. Man or woman. She has class and humor. She knows that no one can push her around, just like Nala.

11. Angela Dorothea Merkel as Mulan from "Mulan."

The real best Disney lady for the woman who continuously breaks and cracks that glass ceiling. Like Mulan, Angela is a fighter and a go getter. She has saved millions of lives with her progressive ways, much like Mulan saved all of China. She is challenging so many societal norms, just like Mulan challenged gender and cultural norms. These ladies are a force to be reckoned with. They give me life. Both are such inspiring women. Mulan will forever be my favorite Disney princess. #sorrynotsorry

7 Reasons Why Literature Is So Important

"Literature Is One Of The Most Interesting And Significant Expressions Of Humanity." -P. T. Barnum

Today, there are too many people who believe that literature is simply not important or underestimate its abilities to stand the test of time and give us great knowledge. There is a stigma in society that implies one who is more inclined toward science and math will somehow be more successful in life, and that one who is more passionate toward literature and other art forms will be destined to a life of low-paying jobs and unsatisfying careers. Somewhere along the line, the world has come to think that literature is insignificant. To me, however, literature serves as a gateway to learning of the past and expanding my knowledge and understanding of the world. Here are just a few reasons why literature is important.

1. Expanding horizons

First and foremost, literature opens our eyes and makes us see more than just what the front door shows. It helps us realize the wide world outside, surrounding us. With this, we begin to learn, ask questions, and build our intuitions and instincts. We expand our minds.

2. Building critical thinking skills

Many of us learn what critical thinking is in our language arts classes. When we read, we learn to look between the lines. We are taught to find symbols, make connections, find themes, learn about characters. Reading expands these skills, and we begin to look at a sentence with a larger sense of detail and depth and realize the importance of hidden meanings so that we may come to a conclusion.

3. A leap into the past

History and literature are entwined with each other. History is not just about power struggles, wars, names, and dates. It is about people who are products of their time, with their own lives. Today the world is nothing like it was in the 15th century; people have changed largely. Without literature, we would not know about our past, our families, the people who came before and walked on the same ground as us.

4. Appreciation for other cultures and beliefs

Reading about history, anthropology, or religious studies provides a method of learning about cultures and beliefs other than our own. It allows you to understand and experience these other systems of living and other worlds. We get a view of the inside looking out, a personal view and insight into the minds and reasoning of someone else. We can learn, understand, and appreciate it.

5. Better writing skills

When you open a book, when your eyes read the words and you take in its contents, do you ask yourself: How did this person imagine and write this? Well, many of those authors, poets, or playwrights used literature to expand their writing.

6. Addressing humanity

All literature, whether it be poems, essays, novels, or short stories, helps us address human nature and conditions which affect all people. These may be the need for growth, doubts and fears of success and failure, the need for friends and family, the goodness of compassion and empathy, trust, or the realization of imperfection. We learn that imperfection is not always bad and that normal can be boring. We learn that life must be lived to the fullest. We need literature in order to connect with our own humanity.

Literature is important and necessary. It provides growth, strengthens our minds and gives us the ability to think outside the box.

Here's Why You Find Lara Jean The Most Relatable Character Ever

If you haven't seen this movie, you've got to!


First of all, let's just say this is the cutest teen movie I've ever seen in my life.

All of the characters, while some of them may be a little trope-y, they're done in a way that makes them all authentic, honest and original. I love them all.

Everyone has a back story and is explained well enough that you know what their role is. Some movies don't do this well. Even though you basically know what's going to happen, because, at the end of the day it is still a teen movie, you're going to sob and maybe even scream.

But back to my queen, Lara Jean, and why she's the absolute best

1. She Has Amazing Style

Were y'all keeping up with the fact that she was putting complete and total looks together that entire time? From the socks to the scrunchies, to the shoes; she looked great every single day! I really can't even believe Gen tried to come for her? Rude.

2. Her Best Friend Is Also Cool

Chris AND Lara Jean together?! Stylish, fashionable, hilarious: iconic! 10/10, I love their friendship and how they're the only ones each other trusts. The way they take care of and look out for one another is great. Plus they both have such great personalities.

3. She Daydreams

I love how Lara Jean lives in her own head. She has all these ideas of what love is because she's read about it and imagined it, but she's never experienced it before. Reminds me of someone I know (me).

4. She Pushes People Away

Not necessarily a positive thing about her, but this makes Lara Jean a real person and less like every other perfect fairytale, teen romance movie to ever be made. She has a problem letting people in and her background and the dialogue in the movie actually explains why.

5. She's Not One Of The Popular Kids

Whenever they make a teen movie, there's always the popular kids and I love when the protagonist/main character isn't one of them. I wasn't one of them in high school, so making movies about the cool kids doesn't make them easy to root for.

6. She's a Person of Color

Do you know how great it is to see a POC as the lead in a teen movie? I watch a lot of these because I'm garbage and it's usually a blonde white girl who's like stereotypically attractive but not "popular," and it just makes the movie harder to relate to. I think having the lead be a person of color makes the movie a little more accessible to more people. Because people who look like Lara Jean can see themselves in her and it's important for young people of all types to be recognized in media so they can feel heard and understood. I just love that!

7. She Wins In The End

Even After Gen was terrible to her the whole movie and she lost Peter, Josh and her own freakin' sister, she eventually gets the boy and repairs her relationship with her best friend and her sister! Ahhh, We love a happy ending!

As I said before, this is truly one of the greatest movies I've seen in a very very very long time. All of the characters are so likable, even Lara Jean's dad. It's like "Mean Girls" but so much cuter and less dramatic.

As a fan of the genre of teen romance, I'm glad a movie like this exists, with a woman of color as the lead and a sad backstory, but a cute and witty family. It's truly all the things I ever wanted in a teen romance.

Thanks, "To All the Boys I've Loved Before."
