​11 Reasons I'm Thankful Hillary Clinton, With Her Normal-Sized Hands, Is NOT In The Oval Office

​11 Reasons I'm Thankful Hillary Clinton, With Her Normal-Sized Hands, Is NOT In The Oval Office

A woman as president? No way.

The reaction to the 2016 Presidential Election has probably been one of the most split in decades. Some people were overjoyed to see that the electoral college welcomed Donald Trump into the oval office and others were very much not. When it comes to my own views, there are SO many reasons that I’m so glad Hillary wasn’t elected to office.

1. It would have sucked to have a woman as president.

God, we really dodged a bullet with this one. It was almost too much to have the first POC as president with Obama. But a woman!? Really? Come on, America. Clearly, the best thing for us right now is to have another white, male president. We almost progressed too much there. The best thing for us right now is to go back to the same ideals that the white guys that founded the country had back in the 1700s.

2. Public policy is so much more convenient and professional when announced on Twitter.

Crooked Hillary probably would have gone the traditional route and made an official release of public policy and other important announcements. That would have been a total bummer. As a millennial, I want every single important thing to be sent directly to my iPhone. It would have been a total drag to have PROFESSIONALISM in the oval office.

3. Pride Month may have actually been recognized.

Hillary, an ally of the LGBT community, would have probably made an effort to recognize the community every June. Not in my good Christian White House! I feel so much more comfortable with an administration that ignores this abominable month that advocates for a lack of discrimination and violence against human beings.

4. POC and the LGBT community may have felt safe.

Speaking of, I can’t believe the American public REALLY thought that POC and the LGBT community should feel SAFE. Crooked Hillary may have actually fostered a nation full of people with an attitude of acceptance, support, and without racism, homophobia, and transphobia. Could you even imagine? Immigrants, POC, LGBT people, minorities of any kind….feeling safe!? Nope. Nope. Nope. Thank GOD Hillary isn’t in office.

5. She has regular-sized hands.

If my president doesn’t have puny hands, then they are #NotMyPresident. This is a NECESSITY for a qualified candidate. I can’t believe she even considered running for office; she probably doesn’t even have to custom-order her gloves. The audacity.

6. Hillary actually had government experience.

Senate, secretary of state... what? That would have been ridiculous to elect someone with actual experience to qualify her for the job. I feel much better knowing that the guy with all of the missile codes has next to no qualifications for his job other than bold claims and dangerously enthusiastic supporters. Hosting a reality show is really all you’d ever need. I wonder if Carson Daly is considering a new job?

7. She knows not to poke the bear.

One thing that has been absolutely refreshing within the last year is to see Donald Trump so boldly go after Kim Jong Un with all of his United States-reaching nukes. He really gives no regard to how badly angering North Korea could go. Hillary probably would have wimped out and left him alone with his nukes. I’m glad we didn’t put that maniac into power.

8. Hillary might have chosen to talk to experts about pressing issues.

That would have been idiotic to think of talking to people who actually know a lot about what they’re talking about. I’m so thankful we have Trump to talk to people like Kim K on prison reform. I hope he got some bonus cash on Kim Kardashian Hollywood for meeting with her while he was at it.

9. Hillary may have actually accepted criticism, rather than attempting to discredit those that offered it.

If Hillary had been in office, I wouldn’t have known about all of the #FakeNews out there. I’d always known that journalism can be skewed, but until Trump, I had no idea bad media was as easy to spot as seeing if they’ve ever said something negative about Donald Trump. With this quick indicator, I’ve been able to weed through journalists with ease. Thanks, Don!

10. No wall!

Nothing promotes a positive relationship with other countries better than a dividing wall between us! Hillary had absolutely nothing to bring to the table that topped this idea. I can’t believe she couldn’t cook up a genius idea like this. Let’s make it #TenFeetHigher for some real results!

11. Hillary might have done something about gun violence.

There’s nothing like the systematic death of our children in schools to promote gun reform. With Parkland, Santa Fe, and the countless other school shootings in recent news, many are calling for stricter gun laws. Crooked Hillary may have listened and tried to take guns away from good American citizens! No, no! The right thing here is to do nothing but tweet half-hearted condolences and promise your supporters that they won’t have to worry about losing their extensive assault rifle collection just because of a few “wacky” kids.

I'm The College Girl Who Likes Trump And Hates Feminism, And Living On A Liberal Campus Is Terrifying

I will not sugarcoat it: I don't feel safe on my own campus.


I will get right to the point: being a conservative on a liberal college campus in 2019 downright terrifying.

At my university, I'm sure about 90% of the population, both students and faculty, are liberals. They are very outspoken, never afraid to express their views, opinions, and feelings in several ways. There are pride events for the LGBT community, a huge celebration for MLK day, and tons of events for feminists.

Then there's the minority: the conservatives. The realists. The "racists," "bigots," and "the heartless." I am everything the liberals absolutely despise.

I like Donald Trump because he puts America first and is actually getting things done. He wants to make our country a better place.

I want a wall to keep illegals out because I want my loved ones and me to be safe from any possible danger. As for those who are genuinely coming here for a better life, JUST FILL OUT THE PAPERWORK INSTEAD OF SNEAKING AROUND.

I'm pro-life; killing an infant at nine months is inhumane to me (and yet liberals say it's inhumane to keep illegals out…but let's not get into that right now).

I hate feminism. Why? Because modern feminism isn't even feminism. Slandering the male species and wanting to take down the patriarchy is just ridiculous.

I hate the media. I don't trust anyone in it. I think they are all biased, pathological liars. They purposely make our president look like the devil himself, leaving out anything good he does.

I will not sugarcoat it: I don't feel safe on my own campus.

I mostly keep my opinions to myself out of fear. When I end up getting one of my "twisted" and "uneducated" thoughts slip out, I cringe, waiting for the slap in the face.

Don't get me wrong; not everyone at my university is hostile to those who think differently than they do.

I've shared my opinions with some liberal students and professors before, and there was no bloodshed. Sure, we may not see eye to eye, but that's okay. That just means we can understand each other a little better.

Even though the handful of students and faculty I've talked to were able to swallow my opinions, I'm still overwhelmed by the thousands of other people on campus who may not be as kind and attentive. But you can't please everybody. That's just life.

Your school is supposed to be a safe environment where you can be yourself. Just because I think differently than the vast majority of my peers doesn't mean I deserve to be a target for ridicule. No one conservative does. Scratch that, NO ONE DOES.

I don't think I'll ever feel safe.

Not just on campus, but anywhere. This world is a cruel place. All I can do is stand firm in my beliefs and try to tolerate and listen to the clashing opinions of others. What else can I do?

All I can say is... listen. Be nice. Be respectful of other's opinions, even if you strongly disagree. Besides, we all do have one thing in common: the desire for a better country.

9 Candidates Running In The 2020 Presidential Election

The political state of the U.S. can't get any worse than how it is now, or can it?


Despite just getting done with the 2018 midterms, the candidates who will be running in 2020 are already coming into the spotlight.

1. Elizabeth Warren


As a senator from Massachusetts, Warren is a Democrat and is very progressive. Some of her goals as president would be to fix the flaws in our capitalistic society and place heavier taxes on those with much wealth. If elected, she would be the first female president.

2. Kamala Harris


Like Elizabeth Warren, Kamala is both a senator and Democrat. She has said she wants Medicare for all, and to give a tax cut to the middle class. If elected, she would be the first black, female president.

3. Andrew Yang


As a Democrat who served under the Obama administration, Yang wants a policy to be passed that allows for a minimum income of $1,000 every month, for everyone over the age of 18.

4. Pete Buttigieg


Buttigieg, a Democratic who is a mayor in Indiana, has much experience with redevelopment and infrastructure projects. If elected, he would be the first LGBTQ president.

5. Tulsi Gabbard


A Democratic representative from Hawaii, who wanted to pass a Constitutional amendment to protect and ensure "traditional marriage" now says she understands LGBTQ rights. If elected, she would be the first Hindu president.

6. Kirsten Gillibrand


A Democratic senator from New York, Gillibrand has focused much time attempting to lessen sexual assault in the military. She was more of a centrist democrat at the beginning of her career but is becoming more progressive. If elected, she would be the first woman president.

7. Julian Castro


Castro, a Democrat, worked for Obama's cabinet and was the youngest member in it. Having immigrant grandparents, Castro believes the immigration policies need to be "reconstituted" yet opposes the Wall. He has a twin who also serves in Congress.

8. John Delaney


A democratic representative of Maryland, Delaney has been running since July 2017. He wants to embrace immigration and keep the U.S. globally competitive.

9. Donald Trump


The only Republican candidate to officially declare that they're running in 2020 is Trump, who wants to take up a second term.

There aren't many candidates yet, but from who there is so far, many demographics are represented. So, I have faith in the 2020 election cycle.
