Which celebrity would you actually vote for if they ran for President of the United States? Many celebrities, from Kanye West to Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, have publicly considered running for president. However, which celebrity do you think would actually make a good president?
After Oprah's powerful Golden Globes speech in 2018, in which she slammed the mistreatment of women in the film industry, there was a lot of buzz online of her launching a 2020 bid. It didn't happen in 2020, but one can dream. 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, 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?
