List RulesNo politicians - and none of their relatives, either. Only Americans who are at least 35 years old.

Which celebrity would you actually vote for if they ran for President of the United States? If you can remember all the way back to Kanye West’s speech at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards, you may remember that he closed by saying that he’ll be running for president in 2020. If he actually runs, it’s going to be highly entertaining (just think of the debates). But he shouldn’t be the only celebrity who takes a shot at becoming the most important person in the world. After Oprah's powerful Golden Globes speech in 2018, in which she slammed the mistreatment of women in the film industry, there has been a lot of buzz online of her launching a 2020 run as well. There are plenty of other actors, rappers, and just plain famous people who could probably handle having their finger on the button. From Kim Kardashian to Stephen Colbert, and even Charlie Sheen, here’s a definitive list of other celebrities who should run for President of the United States.

If you think about it, being President of the United States isn’t all that different from being a regular celebrity. People with no knowledge of what you really do are constantly criticizing you, you spend most of your time on a private airplane, and you have a giant posse. If you’re a famous person (FP for short), you might as well run for president every four years. Worst case scenario, you actually win and have to figure out which member of your inner circle is going to be your chief of staff. Which celebs do you think make great presidential candidates?

Upvote the celebrities you think should run for President of the United States. If you think there’s a celebrity who’s uniquely qualified to run the US of A, add them to the list and see how many votes they get.
