We’ve all heard Kanye West’s VMA announcement about running for President in the 2020 election. At first we were pretty shocked and confused, but when we really thought about it we realized it was probably the most ‘Kanye’ thing to ever happen.

Our opinion on whether or not Kanye would do well as president isn’t quite formed yet, but we do think a ton of other celebs would do a pretty swell job running the country.

1. Zendaya 

You know we have to kick this off with our girl Zendaya. Even though Zendaya is only 19 years old, she is very confident, passionate and speaks out on what she believes in, which is exactly what we need in a president.  Remember when Giuliana Rancic made that not so nice comment about her hair? Zendaya formed a perfect response that was extremely intelligent and informative. She’s a true inspiration and would be an amazing president. 

2. Meryl Streep

Meryl Streep is another celebrity that would make an excellent candidate for President. Meryl is extremely environmentally friendly, which is an important characteristic the President should have due to the current state of our environment. She is also an advocate for gender equality and pay equality. Remember when Patricia Arquette gave that speech at the Oscars and Meryl was seen being extremely supportive. That is something we need in a President.

3. Kid President 

The next obvious pick would be Kid President aka Robby Novak. Robby is featured in a series of YouTube videos where he has been named Kid President. His videos cover all kinds of topics like schooling, parenting and simply how we can make the world a better place. He’s even met President Obama, so we’re sure he passed along some tips to Robby. Robby is so intelligent and articulate for being a kid, and we wouldn’t be surprised if he actually became president in the future. 

4. Tina Fey & Amy Poehler 

You know how there can only be one president? We think we should abolish that rule and make an exception for Tina Fey Amy Poehler. The BFFS should be duel presidents. Think about it: double the stuff would get done! Besides the fact that every speech they gave would leave us in tears from laughing so much, the pair is extremely committed to making the world a better place.

Tina is a huge supporter of Autism Speaks, which is an organization that sponsors autism research. She is also a supporter of Mercury Corps, which is an organization that fights to end world hunger.

Amy is also a huge supporter of Autism Speaks just like Tina. She also is an advocate for The Trevor Project, which helps LGBTQ youth find comfort and help in a judge-free environment. All of these organizations are truly changing the world, and if Amy and Tina were to become Presidents all of these topics would be brought to light, and it would help make an even bigger difference.

5. Ellen DeGeneres 

Ellen DeGeneres please run for President! Pretty, pretty, pretty please! Ellen would make the most amazing president in our opinion. She’s kind, charming, funny and is ridiculously passionate about really important topics. She’s a huge supporter of the LGBTQ community and their rights. She is also is a huge advocate for animal rights. In 2009, PETA named her their ‘Woman Of The Year’ for crying out loud! She was also named a special enjoy for Global AIDS awareness in 2011 by Hillary Clinton.

These are only a few of the organizations Ellen supports. In addition to this, she helps people on her show every single day. This shows that she genuinely cares about how we as society are treated, and if you don’t think she would make a good president we don’t know what to tell you…

6. Angelina Jolie 

Last but not least, we think Angelina Jolie  would make a great president. First off, Angelina is the ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). The UNHCR aims to protect and support refugees across the world. Angelina has done so many hands-on projects in Cambodia and other places making sure that these refugees get the resources they need. She even donated $1 million to UNHCR to make sure as many people were being helped as possible.

In addition to this, Angelina is a huge supporter of the education of children, women’s rights, the fight against sexual violence, and so much more. She really has a grasp on what is important in this day and age, and with her drive and motivation we know she would help so many people as President.
