11 Popular Political Figures Described By Disney Characters

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

9 Eligible Princes You Need To Know About Now That Prince Harry Is Off The Market

You too could have a Meghan Markle fairytale

Prince Harry's royal wedding is officially over and there won't be another British royal wedding for quite some time now, as Prince George is way too young to start thinking about that. Fortunately, there are plenty of other countries with plenty of other princes that are still eligible bachelors at the moment. Lucky for you, I did my research and compiled a list of all the eligible princes you need to know about know that Prince Harry has tied the knot with Meghan Markle.

1. Prince Louis of Luxembourg (31)

Prince Louis is the third son of the Grand Duke Henri and Duchess Maria Theresa of Luxembourg. He has recently become a bachelor again after his separation with his wife of 10 years, Princess Tessy.

Fun Fact: He graduated from Richmond, The American International University of London with a BA in Communications. He can also speak Luxembourgish (the fact that's even a language is fun fact by itself), French, German, and English fluently.

2. Prince Sebastien of Luxembourg (26)

Prince Sebastien is the youngest child of the Grand Duke Henri and Duchess Maria Theresa of Luxembourg, so if you marry him, you'll probably never actually be queen because he's pretty far removed from the throne. However, he's relatively young and single, so best of luck.

Fun Fact: For some bizarre reason, this prince actually went to college in Ohio. He played rugby and graduated from Franciscan University of Steubenville in 2015. Now, he is back in his home country and is an officer in the Luxembourg Army.

3. Prince Phillipos of Greece and Denmark (34)

You read that correctly, Prince Phillipos is the prince of not one, but two countries. He is the youngest son of King Constantine and Queen Anne Marie of Greece and Denmark. Unfortunately, Greece abolished their monarchy, so he's a prince in name only there.

Fun Fact: Like Prince Sebastien, Prince Phillipos also went to college in the United States. He earned his B.A. in foreign relations from Georgetown University in 2008. Fortunately, for us American girls, he is actually still living in the US and he works in New York City as an analyst at Ortelius Capital.

4. Prince Albert of Thurn and Taxis (34)

Ever heard of Thurn and Taxis? No? Me neither. Anyways, Prince Albert is from the House of Thurn and Taxis, which is essentially a very old German aristocratic family. He is the son of Prince Johannes XI of Thurn and Taxis and Countess Gloria of Schonburg Glauchau. His family is well known for their breweries and castles, so unless you're gluten-free, you can't really complain.

Fun Fact: He's not just a prince. He's also a racecar driver and 10 years ago he was ranked 11th on Forbes Magazine's List of The 20 Hottest Young Royals.

5. Prince Mateen of Brunei (26)

Prince Mateen is basically like all the guys you already know, except he's royalty. He's the prince of Brunei, which is a small country on the island of Borneo, south of Vietnam. He is one of the five sons of Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, and he also has seven sisters. Maybe that's a little different than the guys you know, but one thing he takes very seriously, just like most frat guys, is his Instagram.

Fun Fact: Mateen enjoys playing polo, flying in his private plane, cuddling cute wild animals, and keeping up his Insta game with 890k followers. You can follow him @tmski.

6. Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum of Dubai (35)

Sheikh Hamdan also has a killer Instagram with 6.3 million followers. Anyways, Sheikh Hamdan is the billionaire crown prince of Dubai and the second son of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, who is the prime minister of the United Arab Emirates and essentially the king of Dubai (Emir). He's actually next in line for the throne because his older brother died in 2015.

Fun Fact: Hamdan's hobbies include skydiving, zip lining, and diving, just to name a few, so if you're an adrenaline junkie, Sheikh Hamdan is the prince for you.

7. Prince Hussein of Jordan (23)

Prince Hussain is the son of the extremely beautiful, Queen Rania and Abdullah II of Jordan and next in line for the Jordanian throne. At 23, he's already a second lieutenant in the Jordanian Armed Forces and he was the youngest person ever to chair a UN Security Council Meeting

Fun Fact: Like Prince Phillippos, Prince Hussain also graduated from Georgetown University in Washington D.C.. Also, like Prince Mateen and Prince Hamdan, he's Insta famous with 1.3 million followers and you can follow him @alhusseinjo.

8. Prince Constantine-Alexios of Greece and Denmark (19)

Like Prince Phillipos, Prince Constantine-Alexios also has two countries. Lucky for us though, he is also living in the US right now attending Georgetown University in Washington D.C. (like pretty much every other prince, amirite?) He is the oldest son of Crown Princess Marie-Chantal and Crown Prince Pavlos of Greece.

Fun Fact: He's Prince William's godson, so that's pretty neat. However, if that wasn't cool enough, you might like to know that this Greek/Danish prince was actually born in New York. Oh yeah, you can also follow him on Instagram @alexiosgreece where he has 88.7k followers.

9. Prince Joachim of Belgium (26)

Prince Joachim of Belgium, Archduke of Austria-Este is the third child of Lorenz, Archduke of Austria-Este and Princess Astrid of Belgium. Although he bears the title, "Prince of Belgium," he is also Archduke of Austria-Este, Prince Royal of Hungary and Bohemia, and Prince of Modena. Unfortunately, he'll probably never actually be king in any of these countries as he is ninth in line to the Belgian throne.

Fun Fact: Prince Joachim has degrees in economics, management, and finance, but he decided to join the Nautical School in Brugge after completing college and is currently an officer in the Belgian Navy.

Hope is not lost for all you girls dreaming of finding a Prince Charming that's literally a prince. After reviewing the data, my best advice is to transfer to Georgetown where princes are basically around every corner.
