I like her humanitarian side and how much she cares for other people around the globe. I hear what shes saying in the interview and I think she makes good points but I dont know if she would be up for the entire task of being president one day.

That being said if she ran in 2020 Id vote for her bc literally anyone is better than what we have now.

To have yet again someone from entertainment be elected as president would again turn the presidential election more into a popularity contest; something frivolous rather than a serious political process. I'm also a bit suspicious of that extreme rightwing dad of hers...

Then again:

Eh, its always hard to say.
I mean when you look at "actual" politicans nowadays in america or somewhere else...i hardly believe they are qualified enough to be called politican in the first place.

If you know your way around in politics, know the law and stuff then i dont see why someone in the entertainment industry or so shouldnt run for president or anything else.

There are many politicans or hell the current president of america who have no clue about politics...so i dont see why being in the entertainment industry or so should disqualify someone.

But i think first all the bases need to be checked to see if the person is fit and knows how important the task is.

And its true, many people do more good for a country or the whole world without being president or some politican...so there is that.

But i do think its an interesting topic to think about when looking at politics all over the world.

I have no idea if she'd actually make a good politician, but she certainly does more for good causes than the vast majority of Hollywood posers.

I'd vote for Lucifer over Trump at this point.

Surely the president should be, you know, a politician?

Once you're elected, you're a politician.
