American politics is no longer about cranky old guys that would sell their mother to get an extra vote. How about voting your favorite celeb as the 46th U.S. President?
With Trump set to have a tumultuous four-year term, hopes are high that the next Commander-in-Chief will be a better one. Check out the A-listers that might switch their illustrious careers for a cozy spot in the Oval Office.
1. Katy Perry
Katy Perry saluting the American public as their new President would be the best thing ever.
The White House is craving for its first female President, and we all want to see Perry perform at the highest of levels. Let’s explore together some fresh clues that the 32-year-old singer is ready for a major career shift in 2020.
Katy supported both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton throughout their campaigns, and pleasing the voters of the Democrat Party in Primaries would be a piece of cake. Katy kicked off her campaign early by sitting alongside George W. Bush and Bill Clinton. She dubbed that Instagram candy “42, 43, 46?!”
The only drawback of having Katy Perry as the next U.S. President is putting up with Left Shark as VP.

2. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson
Actor, producer, professional wrestler, … and President of the United States of America.
Let’s admit it! Dwayne Johnson augmenting his occupational history as The Leader of the Free World is no longer as far-fetched as it once was. After all, fellow muscle man Arnold Schwarzenegger pulled a similar stunt and got the chance to end each speech as Governor of California with “I’ll be back!”
The “Baywatch” star announced his 2020 presidential campaign in a “Saturday Night Live” sketch that saw veteran actor Tom Hanks as his running mate. The Rock might have joked about running for the White House, but after what happened with Trump, political analysts are ready to credit even your neighbor’s cat with decent odds of winning.
“We the People” sounds catchy enough to win. Nevertheless, there is one huge argument that makes Johnson’s Oval Office bid fit only for a Hollywood movie.
The Rock is last year’s best-paid actor, and the $65 million he cashed are light-years away from the $400,000 the President makes per year.
Can you guess who is next on this crazy list of potential U.S. presidents?
3. Kanye West
Kanye West intends to run for President in 2020 and the prospect of him winning is a bit scary.
To start with, Yeezy has no clear agenda. “I don’t have views on politics, I just have a view on humanity, on people, on the truth.” That might sound beautiful in a poetical sense, but ruling the world’s biggest economy is a serious business, one we doubt the rapper can handle.
However, that’s not the worst that can happen in case Kanye Omari West catches a great day and wins the popular vote. Can you imagine Kim Kardashian becoming First Lady?
Even worse, can you imagine the rest of the Kardashians taking public office or acting as foreign ambassadors? Something tells us that Kris Jenner serving as Secretary of State would be far more disastrous than Hillary Clinton’s term.

4. Oprah Winfrey
“You get a car! You get a car! And you get a car!”
How’s that for a political slogan? Oprah Winfrey as the candidate for the upcoming Presidential Elections would send the opposing ticket on a shopping spree that would exhaust their campaign budget immediately.
Oprah has enough money to buy her place into the hearts of most American voters. Nevertheless, the fantastic work she did so far in entertainment will act as good enough credentials for her taking the highest public office.
Until now, Oprah rejected the idea because she felt like not having experience for the job. Everything changed once fellow media tycoon Donald Trump claimed his improbable victory.
Winfrey was a supporter of Ms. Clinton, and she might be the Democratic Party’s next attempt to install a woman as President.
You are going to like the next candidate!
5. Will Smith
Will Smith as the next U.S. President is a scenario no longer limited to Hollywood imagination.
Will is by a comfortable margin the most efficient big screen magnet. That means the millions that flock to see each of his movies can quickly turn into voters. You can be that he can draw in even from the 50% that traditionally don’t show up at polling sections.
In American society, freedom to pursue happiness makes everything possible. Will Smith has enough money to support his campaign, and the endorsement Hollywood can coagulate might prove crucial.
The only thing against Will Smith is the fact that his fellow countrymen already elected an African-American, and they did it twice. Something tells there is a lot of pressure for that not to happen again shortly.
Coming up next is an actor who would serve great as President.
6. Tom Hanks
Tom Hanks is yet another possible winning ticket for the Democrats in 2020.
Although nominated by Dwayne Johnson to be his VP, Hank was never shy in admitting he is in for the highest position. And we see a lot of reasons that would make him a solid candidate.
Tom Hanks has remarkable speech abilities and being a respected senior of the movie industry gives his bid that needed weight to impress the voters. The 60-year-old actor also holds a privileged position in American popular culture that puts him in pole position.
Forrest Gump is an all-American hero, and his fans would give their lives to see that crew cut return to the White House victorious. Now it should be less embarrassing than the time when Hanks dropped his pants to show President Lyndon B. Johnson his war wound.
On the next page, you’ll meet another celeb who joined the race after witnessing Trump’s surprise win.
7. Ron Perlman
Ron Perlman used Facebook to announce his intention to run for President in the 2020 elections.
The disclosure came just one day after Trump had secured his victory in November last year. “My slogan will be, “Make America Great Again, Again” so…hold onto your hats!”
It’s hard to say whether Perlman would make a good president or not. We need to watch “Beauty and The Beast” and “Sons of Anarchy” all over again to evaluate his potential.
One thing is sure, though. More and more celeb joined what has become a trend and pose as viable candidates. Did Trump open a Pandora’s Box? It seems so, given that a Hellboy wants to be next in line.
Even comedians stand a chance. Can you guess who is next on the list?
8. Ellen DeGeneres
Ellen DeGeneres is the kind of Presidential candidate we all want, and need.
Always harboring a smile on her face, Ellen is capable of turning any political feud into a hilarious sketch. Her instincts as a comedian might cheer up the world traditionally belonging to grumpy gray-haired men that jump at each other’s throats on a regular basis.
Ellen’s approach to American politics is delicious. Forget about the donkey and the elephant! Ellen promises she will get rid of all parties, and throw a giant pizza party instead. That’s gold!
Voters would have the ultimate tool to trust someone’s good faith. No one likes the guy that claims the last pizza slice. As for Trump, we’ve all seen how he ate a slice backward.

9. Stephen Colbert
Stephen Colbert is no stranger to politics and analyst view his name as a great ticket for the 2020 elections.
The 53-year-old comedian already tested the waters in two South Carolina primaries. Colbert ran for the Democratic Party in 2008 and for the Republicans in 2012, claiming higher-level obstructions that denied him generous percentages.
The next obvious step for Colbert is to run as an independent. We see scores of voters that would rally behind a man so firm in his anti-establishment beliefs.
The only downside of Colbert becoming the 46th President of the United States would be him having to step down from “The Late Show.” That, and embracing a more somber attitude.
Coming up next, we will show you why the Democrats currently court a famous musician.
10. Tim McGraw
Tim McGraw throwing his fabulous hat into the political rings is not as far-fetched as we once thought.
The 50-year-old has a made a successful crossover between country music and pop, and that should be enough to attract crowds of millions to cast a ballot on his behalf. Will he finally muster the courage and run in 2020?
What’s most appealing about Tim McGraw as a candidate is that he might bring the Democrats the most comfortable win in years. Remember all those states colored in red on the 2016 result map?
That might change once country music enthusiasts deny their Republican allegiances for a shot at seeing McGraw president. Tim is the only man capable of turning Texas into a swing state!

11. Mark Zuckerberg
Zuckerberg gave humanity the gift of social media, so chances are he will do great as the next U.S. President.
By 2020, a lot will change. Can you picture a future in which candidates face each other on Facebook and the winner is the one with the highest number of “Likes?” We certainly can, and in that no so far-fetched reality, Zuckerberg will have the advantage of home ground.
Excited fans should curb their enthusiasm. Although Zuckerberg never denied the rumors, his candidature is highly unlikely.
Common, the man has a net worth of more than $60 billion! The Oval Office offers the most stressful job in the world that offers pennies as a salary. With $400,000 per year, Mark would have to spend 15,000 years to make as much as he owns now.
The first female President in U.S history will be … Can you guess, or should you click next?
12. Angelina Jolie
“Vote for Jolie!”
Sounds legit, right? Angelina Jolie winning the 2020 elections to become the first female President is not just another wild fan theory. In fact, something similar happened some decades ago.
Before becoming the 40th President of the United States, Ronald Reagan was a Hollywood big shot. Historians are still not sure how he made his way into politics and how he convinced the American public to vote for him.
One thing is sure. Long hours of rehearsing roles end up polishing actors’ public speaking to the point of perfection.
When it comes to Angelina, that’s only the beginning. The 42-year-old dedicated herself to humanitarian work like no one before, and she should have no troubles in posing as the better candidate.

13. Daniel Day-Lewis
With Daniel Day-Lewis Hollywood makes another firm statement that it wants the turn the White House into a movie set.
However, we have a long way to go until our beloved actor can install as Commander-in-Chief. First, Day-Lewis would have to fake his birth certificate to make it look as if he was an American citizen all along. We suggest he talk with Obama on instructions for pulling the stunt.
As far as we know, his role as Lincoln is the only thing linking him with the presidential institution now. On the other hand, who would have credited Trump with chances of winning? 2020 promises to be a wild year with many celebs fighting each other for the throne.
On the next page, you get to meet another potential celeb candidate.
14. Howard Schultz
Howard Schultz becoming the next U.S President gives White House employees good reasons to cheer.
Can you guess who will get free coffee each morning? That is only one of the perks of having a Starbucks former chief executive as your boss.
Schultz stepped down from the company in March 2017, and the question here is not when he will make his 2020 bid official. There is plenty of time to go until Trump’s seat will approach vacation, so we see no reasons to be hasty here
Voters will have to figure out what kind of president is Schultz going to be. Will he be a “Short” or a “Trenta?” Can you imagine him walking into Starbucks after Election Day and asking for “Mr. President” on his coffee cup?
You must read about the next comedian that dreams of performing in the White House.
15. Chris Rock
Trump’s surprise victory inspired stand-up comedy legend Chris Rock to pursue a similar goal.
Although having no experience in public office, Rock can lure in the voters with the fact that he once played the role of an imaginary American president. “Head of State” aired in 2003 and it somehow foretold Obama’s successful bid.
Under the motto “The only thing white is the house,” Chris hopes to see his face added to Mount Rushmore for good this time. You probably guessed it already! The Democrats are the only ones eager to support Rock and his wild dream.
Can you imagine the confusion of having to choose between Rock and The Rock in the Primaries? Grammar pundits would kill for such a once in a lifetime shot.
No one is better than him at playing president! Can you guess his name?
16. Morgan Freeman
The soothing voice of Morgan Freeman would make even the most absurd executive order coming from the White House seem friendly and harmful.
If elect, Freeman would serve as the eldest American President. He will be 83 when assuming office, thus beating Trump’s record. Let’s have a short look at the credentials that make the Oscar-winning actor such an obvious choice.
Freeman is probably the most experienced political figure … of the big screen. He played Senator, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, U.S. President (in “Deep Impact”), and … even God.
Oh, and let’s not forget how people often mistake Morgan Freeman for one of the most admired political figures – South African President, Nelson Mandela. All those roles make him ideal for the real-life scenario.
Will the next actor switch his beloved Hollywood for a 4-year term at the White House?
17. George Clooney
George Clooney is another star who won’t need the campaign to win the 2020 elections.
The 56-year-old holds an uncontested position as a heartthrob, and any woman would vote for him without thinking twice about political programs and campaign promises. Either Democrats or Republicans, no female eligible voter would miss the chance of admiring Clooney take over the TV for the upcoming four years.
By our calculations, that is enough to secure a comfortable margin victory.
Clooney made it clear that his term will focus on dealing with many ongoing international crises. The actor embraced humanitarian work like no one before him. With Clooney Commander-in-Chief, you can bet that the Syrian conflict will finally end.
Clooney is fiercely intelligent and refined. By contrast, Trump looks like a school bully who was elected Hall Monitor. Chances of re-election appear slim if Clooney’s name will be on the Democrats’ ticket.
We make jokes about him. This time is serious!
18. Chuck Norris
Leaving all jokes aside, Chuck Norris fits the image of the man Americans want as their new president.
The 77-year-old actor has become a symbol of heroism and patriotism. It’s hard to find someone else so engraved in popular culture and representing so well the combativeness of the American way.
Norris is a member of the Republican Party, so we will most likely have to fight with incumbent Trump for the nomination. Nevertheless, we are completely convinced by then Trump will have ruined his popularity with even wilder antics.
Who can deny Walker, Texas Ranger the chance to bring his acute sense of justice into American politics?
Would you vote for the guy that fought the system?
19. Michael Moore
Michael Moore would make a solid candidate for the 2020 elections.
The 63-year-old documentary filmmaker has a long history of fighting against the corrupt system. Avid contester of the Bush administration, Moore was never afraid to make his opinions heard loud and clear. “Bowling for Columbine” and “Fahrenheit 9/11” are just two of his productions, showing just far this man is willing to go to speak the truth.
You could compare Moore with Bernie Sanders. The two share a similar anti-establishment speech. It remains to see if the ones calling the shots in the Democratic party will allow Moore to advance all the way to the finals.
Let’s end the list with a name often mentioned around elections. Will he sign up for 2020?
20. Bill Gates
Bill Gates needs no further introduction.
The richest man in the world to date did such a great job with Microsoft, the American public is willing to invest him with the ultimate public office. Although all past pre-election talks mentioned the name Gates along the way, the 63-year-old has made little to confirm the rumors.
Even so, taxpayers see him as a savior for the sluggishness of U.S. economy. Some just hope for a free Windows 10 license.
Like the other business tycoons on the list, Bill fails to see an irresistible attraction in the White House seat. When you are a billionaire preparing to add a 12th figure to your net worth even politics at the highest of levels appears mundane.
