I couldn't be due to not being born there. But count me out.

I believe the vast majority of Americans are unintelligent and I would need more than $400K per year for me to put up with those overfed fast food troglodytes for ~4 years.

Only the most unstable and insecure people in need of constant attention, external gratification, and approval would want to be president of that country.

Meh. Like I told someone on this forum back in 2016, I'm not American, and therefore I don't care. So no, I wouldn't.

And in my experience, the whole yapping ape race in general are shit. It's not just Americans. Not even close.

No! I'll be the Governor of my State but that's as far as I'll go.

No. Always having half the country pissed and the other half disappointed no matter what you do. Guards following you around everywhere. So much and so little control all at once. No thanks.

No. I wouldn’t wish to be in such a position of responsibility unless I absolutely had to be.

Maybe?

I mean, if Trump and Bush can do it, and if the fools in the democratic party can run for it, why not me?

Only problem is I am not rich or corrupt enough. I should probably work on that. Does anyone know of any good charities to embezzle, preferable some children's hospitals or orphanages?

Not to toot my own horn but I don't think I could set the bar any lower. I don't even have Twitter. And if I did manage to be worse than that would be an accomplishment of sorts.

My mind is saying hell no. Not enough money in the world to get me to take on that gig.....is what I want to say. But deep down, I think it would make for an interesting 4 years....

Sure. I would need to start a business beforehand so that I could spend millions of taxpayer money there while I'm in office, but that's still a hell of a grift. Or, you know, I could just try to do a good job.

No, but if it meant by some magical act replacing the current manchild in office, I'd make a more competent politician my VP then resign.

No, there is no benefit to being the president.

Also, I love my freedom too much to be closed in like a president is. Not to mention that the presidents' power is not that much when you consider the power of congress.

If I ever wanted to enter into politics I would pick either the administration staff route or the senate. That´s where the real money is.

I'm not American. But regardless of that, no. Not interested in politics as it is.

Are you more close to being rich or corrupt?

Nope. No matter what I did, people would be blaming me for something. Plus, I don't want to just be a figurehead bowing down to my superiors.

Not really. Although I did consider running for town office recently. President of the USA is not a job most sane people would want... there is huge money and bullshit involved. Although I can see where some people's path may lead them there. Take Bernie Sanders for example: Guy went from being essentially the Vermin Supreme of Burlington, VT to the mayor, to house rep, to senator, to running for president. He has a message and a passion for socio-political change (whether you like him or hate him). But most rich pricks just do it for the power.

I don't live in the US, but even if I did, it would still be nope. Well, unless I'm feeling a bit insane and want to throw the world into absolute chaos.
