Move over Kanye, there's a new and equally as baffling Presidential candidate on the block, and it has arrived in the shape of everyone's favorite Mean Girl, Lindsay Lohan.
In an emoji filled Instagram post this weekend, which no doubt inspired global WTFs and more than a few eye rolls, Ms. Lohan declared she is considering running for President in 2020. Naming Kanye West and Obama as inspirational #truespirits, it seems Lohan is optimistically shooting in a direction where Ronald Reagan and Arnold Schwarzenegger have shot before.
In #2020 I may run for president. Through ups and downs #YESWECAN lets do this @kanyewest #truespirits thank your for inspiring us to be better people @barackobama #kanyewest2020 #lindsaylohanat35 #lindsaylohan2020 with #34yearsofEXPERIENCE #unitingWORLDnations @aliforneycenter @savethesociety @unicef
And then followed up with an image of her buddying up to the opposition.
The first thing I would like to do as president of is take care of all of the children suffering in the world. #queenELIZABETH showed me how by having me in her country
If the rest of her Instagram feed can provide insights into additional agendas she may push once inside the White House, one can assume they'd be inspired by the teachings of Mahatma Gandhi, leader of the Indian Independence movement... though hopefully she'll have learned to spell his name properly before her campaign really kicks off.
However, unfortunately for Lilo, she should've done a tad more research before declaring her intentions to the world. One must be 35 years old to run for President, and in 2020 she'll still be one year shy. Perhaps they'll make an exception though, as clearly there are multiple reasons as to why she'd be an interesting candidate...
1. Ruthless competitive streak
Her enemies know where they'll end up.
2. Solid family values
She's experienced at patching up long-term feuds.
3. On point PR skills
She has the proven ability to pass nonsense off as fact.
4. International Relations
Not a problem!
5. Has the right credentials
i.e. she's wealthy and white.
Plus, she probably knows a thing or two about how the whole justice system works, but let's not get into that.
Nice try, Lilo!
