If We Continue To Elect Celebrities As Presidents...

Updated on February 7, 2018
Donald Trump on The Celebrity's Apprentice.
Donald Trump on The Celebrity's Apprentice.

Now, of course we all remember The Celebrity's Apprentice. It was a show in which contestants would compete for prize money and to be the right hand man of Donald Trump. The problems in his presidency have bewildered me, I believe in mistakes but I don't believe that a man should get this many chances. The question... not slamming anyone reading this article but, what were you thinking electing a person with no political experience, nor any diplomatic foreign trade experience. I will swallow my pride to say that he fixed what left of our economy we had (Thanks Obama). Today, we are a nation that does not, and I repeat DOES NOT, show equality, rights towards LGBTQ+ communities, or sometimes even college for people with different ethnic backgrounds. Not once have I seen Trump or his administration face one of these issues head on. My question is.... what will our country do? What if Kanye runs in 2020? Are we going to vote him in because he is the most popular, or can we swallow our egos and elect a qualified politician?


Have we came together as a nation? Are we succeeding with foreign affairs? Have we kept the same FBI director these past 2 years? If you answered NO to any of these questions, you are either doubting why you voted for Trump or you didn't vote for him plain and simple. A celebrity is not fit to run this country as it is to far more complex for any dumb-witted individual to run. Trump has not complete his "100 Day Plan", he made a bold statement showing that he wants to go down history like Franklin D. Roosevelt. He wanted to create "The Third New Deal", but his ego got him in a sticky situation filled with useless executive orders that our country did not need. Various examples of why a celebrity running our country can lead to disaster. There is hope for our president, if he is somehow able to bounce back from his horrid first year as president. I do not expect much from our flamboyant, limelight businessman but he could surprise me.


In closing, I see no fit for a president who is popular among the population as an actor, athlete, or reality TV star. I look for qualities, such as being an optimistic, courageous individual running for our president. So, when all of these idiotic kids are voting for Kanye in 2020. I will be right there with them, only I will be voting for someone who is going to lead our country in the right direction.

Kanye Or A Qualified Politician?

      @bradmasterOCcal - Russian bot troll - write your own article on your own hub. I didn't read your long treatise because comments are usually brief succinct reactions to the article.

      I enjoyed your young slant on our current political situation. It's hard to say or imagine where our new president will lead the country. However, I for one am pulling for him. We were headed down a slimy path. We need to start facing, and solving our problems, not sweeping them under a carpet .

      B:

      As a high school student, what kind of experience do you have to make this claim? What are your foundations for this article.

      Were you like eight years old when Barack Obama became president?

      Plus this article is very terse, and most of us try to get at least seven hundred words in an article. This is not slamming you, but just making a comment.

      --------------------------------------------------------

      The question... not slamming anyone reading this article but, what were you thinking electing a person with no political experience, nor any diplomatic foreign trade experience. I will swallow my pride to say that he fixed what left of our economy we had (Thanks Obama).

      B:

      Since the 1970s professional and experienced politicians have filled the congress and the presidency from both parties. The two parties are diametrically opposite goals on what is the direction to take the country. And they always have been since they were created in the 1800s, and they continue even today.

      • With these experienced politicians the country has been in a continual war of some kind or another. And we really haven’t won any of them. My definition of winning is that the issues caused the war were solved.

      • Beside the war, we have had the economy jolted by two big bubbles, the Dot Com at the end of the 1990s, and 2008 when the economy melted down. In 1993 the WTC was bombed, and Osama Bin Laden got the credit. Yet it took the US until 2009 to get him, and he was right under their noses in Pakistan. Pakistan our alleged Allie?

      • In the meantime, OBL was at work attacking the US abroad, and then in 2001 he and only 19 terrorists successfully attacked the US on its own soil. The entire US military and other agencies failed to defend the country during the 911 attack.

      • There is no excuse for that lack of defense, and it started with the failure of the 16 US Intelligence Agencies from stopping the attack, when the necessary information was in their hands. This is the same failure by the US Intelligence agencies that was involved with the Dec 7, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor that got the US into WWII.

      My point is that being a politician, and most of them have been lawyers is not a basis that is synonymous with a presidential qualification.

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------

      Today, we are a nation that does not, and I repeat DOES NOT, show equality, rights towards LGBTQ+ communities, or sometimes even college for people with different ethnic backgrounds. Not once have I seen Trump or his administration face one of these issues head on. My question is.... what will our country do? What if Kanye runs in 2020? Are we going to vote him in because he is the most popular, or can we swallow our egos and elect a qualified politician?

      B:

      I won’t go through the previous analysis, but just say what do you think is a Qualified Politician for the presidency?

      In my opinion, social issues cannot be changed by the government. They can make laws but they can’t change the way people think. Although, the abundance of liberal teachers in the US, can affect their students by favoring their liberal ideas. That is not the place for their ideas, an educator should be objective and not biased.

      Take the social issue of Abortion versus Pro life, and the SCOTUS landmark case of Roe v Wade in 1974. The matter was settled as a matter of law, but the debate goes on every presidential election. And it detracts from discussing the other problems that the government has a better chance of solving.

      There is no such thing as equality, in any of your issues above.

      The preamble says, All Men were Created Equal

      Looking back at history we see that the word “Men” actually meant Man. The proof is that women were not allowed to vote, so where were they equal to men.

      • Even the Black Men were more equal than women with the passing of the 15th amendment that gave the them right to vote.

      • And the 14th amendment that was used in 2008 to give gays the right to marriage didn’t give Black Men or Women the right to vote.

      • The right to vote is the foundation of the US Democratic Republic, and yet neither the US Constitution nor the 14th equal protection amendment gave them the right to vote.

      • The 15th Amendment gave the Black Men, but not the Black Women the right to vote.

      • It took another amendment, the 19th, and 50 more years for all women to get the right to vote.

      So much for the concept of Equality.

      • Further more there is no equality in families.

      • There is no equality of men in their workplace.

      • There is no equality of women in their workplace.

      • There is no equality among white males.

      • There is no equality among white women.

      • Color doesn’t come into play with this inequality.

      • In essence, every time a particular type of person gets protected, it doesn’t help the inequality of the non protected class. For example, there is inequality among white males in their jobs. As it is human to have a pecking order, and there are non objective ways of creating that order. Say two white men are in line for a promotion for the same job. Yet, when the less qualified man is promoted, what recourse does the qualified man have. Contrast that with a women of any color, and black men, and throw in lgbtq.

      • My point is that there is no equality, and having the government try to force equality is a non solvable issue.

      --------------------------------------------------

      Have we came together as a nation? Are we succeeding with foreign affairs? Have we kept the same FBI director these past 2 years? If you answered NO to any of these questions, you are either doubting why you voted for Trump or you didn't vote for him plain and simple.

      B:

      The country has been divided by the democrats and the republicans forever. The divide was the biggest when the democrat got the US into the Civil War to protect their slave ownership. And today, the democrats have once again divided the country, this time because the want illegal immigrants to get the citizenship they don’t deserve, so they may legally be able to vote Democrat in our elections.

      This was a set stage not created in any way by Donald Trump, as he wasn’t in politics, but all your “Qualified” politicians were. And the race card waved for the last 8 years, ironically under a black president.

      The FBI, along with the other US Intelligence agencies have failed us at Pearl Harbor, 911, WMD got us into Iraq. And now that there is evidence to show that the upper management, not the real agents have been making their own biased decisions instead of following their place in the executive branch of the government, why should they remain for even a day longer.

      A celebrity is not fit to run this country as it is to far more complex for any dumb-witted individual to run.

      Go back and read my comments on how your “Qualified” politicians have caused the decline of the US, as well as once again dividing the country.
