The bar was set low a long time before Trump came along.

Spoiler: show
12 years before Trump was elected we did elect a guy who was previously appointed to the position and started a war under false pretenses. We're still in that state of war. The office holder prior to him is infamous for receiving fellatio on the job.


The inexperience factor is major. Who is Oprah going to put in her cabinet? Probably the same (D) names you'd have seen under Hills. Who would advise her? Obama? Cory Booker? Someone else that would be a better fit for the job? I liked Obama because Rahm Emanuel is a super asshole and imo that's what the seemingly nicest guy in the world needed. I didn't like Trump because of Steve Bannon. I'm not buying into Gayle King as a serious Presidential adviser. Shit, I'm still trying to give her the benefit of the doubt that she's got a job on TV right now for some reason other than her BFF pulled some strings.

Do you want Trump re-elected? Because this is how you get Trump re-elected.

The problem isn't that she's a minority woman. Tammy Duckworth would wipe the floor with Trump and I'm pretty sure Tulsi Gabbard and Kamala Harris would also beat her.


Can someone check to see if Duckworth is unmarried and Sellers is trying to make his pitch? I swear, the only person who gets more name recognition than Trump here is Duckworth, and it's all off the back of one guy.

Anyways, to the whole thing at large, I'd vote for her for the same reason I'd vote for the Rock if he ran: Likely to be as incompetent, but less humiliating, hateful, and less likely to defend white supremacists. If you really want to put yourself through another four years of Trump, go for it, I'll be willing to vote for the exact same dysfunction if I at least don't have to wake up every day wondering if Texas and California have finally begun our Second Civil War.

Hell, I don't care if Anthony Wiener ran on a platform of starting global thermonuclear war with Russia, I'd glance at Trump and then be like "Yeah, you know what, we probably all deserve it."

That said, I'd definitely prefer someone with some experience run simply because of the enormity of the problems facing this country that will go unresolved (or, in the case of division, racism, and economic inequality, get worse) under Trump, went unresolved under Obama and also, like...the last ten or so presidents.

Let's be real though. Even Charlie Sheen would be a better president than the current one.

Her campaign slogan should be "at least as qualified as Trump". She managed to jump that rather low bar, but she falls short of being able to hit her head on the bar of actual competent governance.

Nahhhhhhhhhhh, he was just like how a president should be in the cult classic Machete Kills.

Other than the hair, Charlie and Martin could be nearly the same age. Don't do drugs, kids.

The younger Mr. Sheen clearly dyes his, so the difference might not even be the hair, really.

I've said this before somewhere, and I'll say it again:

If American Society could be compared to a Feudal one, then The Government would be the Nobility and Hollywood would be the Church/Clergy.

What have we learned, from 2016 at least, about filling offices with people that don't belong?
Because that's what we seem to be intent on doing:
Jamming the Clergy into the Noble hole.

All American Society would get from the exchange is a sore hole, an angry Nobility, confused Commoners, and a disappointed Church.
