Remember good presidents?

Remember halfway decent presidents?

It's strange to think we might not know what the next four years of our futures hold (at the time of writing), but fortunately, fiction can still give us mentally stable, reliable, honorable, trustworthy, hard-working, stable, passionate, respectful, (did we mention stable?) presidents for us to enjoy.


Reddit user, u/CreativePhilosopher, wanted to know who you long for when they asked:

Who is the best fictional US President from tv/movies/books?

The Doctor. I mean, technically he was President of Earth, but that includes the US.

Look Out For Any And All Glass Domes

President Schwarzenegger from The Simpsons Movie.

I scrolled way too far to find this answer. He did an incredible job for someone who was suddenly and unexpectedly forced into the job.

President who attempted insurance fraud with a golden faced weirdo.

The fact that I had to scroll through so many imposter presidents shows me that redditors aren't drinking enough ELECTROLYTES

All Together Now: "Get Off..."

President James Marshall - Harrison Ford in Air Force One

IMO, the "Get off my plane" scene is the best presidential moment on the big screen, except the "we will not go quietly in the night" speech by the prez in ID4.

Take The W

George W. Bush in the 2nd Harold and Kumar film.

"Let me ask you something Kumar. You like giving handjobs?"

"No"

"Do you like getting handjobs?"

"Haha yes"

"Well doesn't that make you a bit of a hypocritisizer yourself?"

Hands down President Bartlet from the west wing. He's an actual PhD economist who's also a charming genius with great people skills, and shows respect and humility to everyone regardless of political affiliation or how much they agree with him. he was designed to be sort of the ideal american president.

Sometimes I think back to a teacher I had when I was a kid who demanded to know whether any of us were "raised in a barn" in response to crappy behavior. Namely littering. She hated littering. Can you blame her? It's a horrible habit and some people do it with no sense of shame. She dedicated much of her time to telling students to pick up after themselves and dispose of things properly. For that, I'm thankful.

But why didn't anyone else get the memo? The trash I see on the streets is obscene.

People had lots of thoughts to share after Redditor SneakyStriedker876 asked the online community,

"What seemingly uncivilized thing is commonplace in society?"

I love presents. I try to hide my enthusiasm, and I do my best to appease the greater public by saying "it's the thought that counts." But that is a WHOLE lie. I don't just love gifts, I love great gifts. And if you go rogue from my lists, please keep a receipt. It's just plain rude to divert from what the recipient has requested.

This thought process has emerged from experience. I have received some trash presents over the years and now I'm too old to pretend you just went crazy while shopping. Like... "do you even know me?!"

Redditor u/sulemannkhann wanted to hear all about the presents some of us have received that we prayed, came with a receipt, by asking:

What's the worst birthday gift you ever got?

I'm still on the fence about this whole extraterrestrial situation. I need more proof. Now I'm not naive enough to think that in this vast, endless universe only the human race exists. I just need proof, tangible, solid, didn't see it from my trailer through beer goggles proof.

I also need proof about the afterlife, another out there topic. Truth be told, I've never been that into this whole conversation. I've got enough daily problems on this planet, let alone worrying about making Will Smith's biggest hits into documentaries and not just popcorn/comedy space farce.

But let's compare thoughts...

Redditor u/ValencikHannibal197 wanted to discuss life beyond this planet, what do we really think? They asked:

What's the best theory on UFOs or aliens you've ever heard??
