The predicted de-evolution of American Presidents

The key difference between Donald Trump and the previous American Presidents is basically just everything about him. This break in tradition makes us wonder what sort of Presidents we can expect to see next. Now that candidates don’t have to be experienced. Or up to the job. Or even vaguely human.

To discover what’s coming next, we had an octopus make some predictions. Which seems ridiculous, but the octopus’ hit-rate is actually better than most professional polling companies.

Anyway – let’s have a look at who he predicted will be the next Presidents/Vice Presidents.

2020

Hulk Hogan / Dog the Bounty Hunter

Two kids in a rain mac / Sock puppet

CONS: Having a puppet President being an actual puppet might be a bit on the nose.

PROS: There are two kids in the rain mac, so the President will be at least twice as smart as Bush/Trump/etc.

2028

Duke Nukem / Clippy

CONS: Neither physically exist.

PROS: Both understand that America must explode/irritate its enemies.

2032

Bag of medical waste with a face drawn on it / Snowman

000207-predicted-evolution-of-american-presidents-05

CONS: Yes.

PROS: 50% festive.

2034

Sound of someone screaming / Festering pig carcass being picked at by crows

000207-predicted-evolution-of-american-presidents-06

CONS: Probably won’t matter by that point.

PROS: Will maybe – just maybe – make people realise that the American political system is never going to throw up a worthwhile candidate.

We’re a thorn in the side of the establishment, but we can’t do it without your help

Your fight is our fight. But as many of you will know, speaking truth to power has never been easy, especially for a small, independent media outlet such as the Canary. We have weathered many attempts to silence our vital opposition to an increasingly fascist government and right-wing mainstream media. Now more than ever, we need your support.

We don’t have fancy offices, and our entire staff works remotely. Almost all of our income is spent on paying the people who make the Canary’s content. So your contribution directly supports our team and enables us to continue to do what we do: disrupt power, and amplify people.

But we can’t do this without you. So please, if you appreciate our work, can you help us continue the fight?
