8 Celebrities Who Could Do A Good Job As The President Of America


There are actors, musicians and television personalities who the American public likes so much, they wouldn’t mind seeing them becoming the next President of the United States. But it is not just about popularity; there is also something to say about these people’s intelligence, charisma, body of work and charity endeavors that gives them a solid background which wouldn’t be out of place in the Oval Office. What connects them all is an unwavering idealism and a desire to make the world a better place and, after all, isn’t that what politics should be about?

1. Ellen DeGeneres

Core skill set

The popular host genuinely cares about making the world a better place. Her slick dance moves and sense of humor aren’t to be sniffed at either.

Professional experience

Although she has little de-facto political experience, the 59-year-old is believed to have done more in influencing people’s opinions on LGBT rights than any other American. She’s also raised awareness for HIV sufferers and campaigned for animal rights and she’s good friends with Barack Obama.

In the past, Kanye did claim to be a “living God”. That’s about it when it comes to skills.

Professional experience

The rapper is a big supporter of black rights. He has met with President Trump to discuss the ‘multicultural issues’ he cares about such as “bullying, supporting teachers, modernizing curriculums, and violence in Chicago.” Even more than referring to himself in the third person, Kanye loves to make bizarre rants on politics.

The US would perhaps find “the truth” during President West’s reign, although no one is quite sure what that really means. Judging by his lyrics, gun crime, equal rights and the legalization of drugs would be first on the list of reforms.

The 40-year-old announced he would be running for President onstage at the MTV Music Video Awards in 2015, claiming he would like to have the top role so he could make a worthwhile difference in the world: “If there is anything that I can do with my time and my day, to somehow make a difference while I’m alive, I’m going to try to do it,” he said.


3. Tom Hanks

Although the Democrat movie star was once jokingly asked to be the Rock’s running mate in 2020, he wasn’t particularly sold on the idea of becoming a politician, saying: “Just because I’m an actor, I can give a good speech, I agree with that. But the concept of actually voting for someone just because they can do that?”

The best friend of everyone in America is strong, an excellent problem solver and a very hard worker.

We’ll probably never know if President Winfrey could have been the one to bring Americans together, as she has time and time again insisted the job is not for her: “No, that won’t be happening, but I mean, I did used to think, ‘Well gee’, you had to know so much more than I thought you had to know’,” she said once.

The father of Kylie and Kendall has claimed she wants to get into politics to do “a better job,” saying: “Over the next six months or so I gotta find out where I can do a better job. Can I do a better job from the outside working the perimeter of the political scene, being open to talking to anybody, or are you better off from the inside? We are in the process of determining that. But yeah, I would look for a senatorial run.”


6. Will Smith

Core skill set

He’s a true Prince, who isn’t opposed to Getting Jiggy With It from time to time – what more do the United States need?

As one of the world’s highest paid movie stars, Will has come a long way. Could he possibly go further: from West Philadelphia via Bel Air to the White House?

What would America look like under his presidency?
