Lindsay Lohan Wants to Run for President & Kanye West Suddenly Seems Qualified to Be POTUS

lindsay lohanGame on, Kanye West! Another celeb has announced her plans to run for president in 2020, this time via Instagram: Lindsay Lohan. Yup, you read that right: LINDSAY LOHAN wants to run for president. Because of course she does! Why not? (You did notice that Donald Trump was running for president, right?)


On Friday, October 16, the oftentimes-beleaguered LiLo shared a photo of herself at the 2012 White House Correspondents' Dinner (which she apparently attended as a guest of Greta Van Susteren's?!) with the following caption:

"In #2020 I may run for president. Through ups and downs #YESWECAN lets do this @kanyewest #truespirits thank you for inspiring us to be better people @barackobama #kanyewest2020 #lindsaylohanat35 #lindsaylohan2020 with #34yearsofEXPERIENCE #unitingWORLDnations"

Here's the pic:

Looking very presidential there, LiLo! Except, no, she's not. Seriously, what the hell is going on here?! I've always been one to give Lohan the benefit of the doubt over the years, because I think everyone deserves second chances and I also consider her to be legitimately talented. But politics??

Look, perhaps the question of whether or not one has to be uniquely qualified to be a politician is moot at this point, what with the aforementioned Trump thing going on and the also aforementioned Kanye thing maybe going to happen at some point in the future. But at least Kanye has actually made comments about political issues in the past and seems to be semi-aware of political issues. Lohan? Not so much.

Then again, maybe I'm being unfairly dismissive of Lohan's aspirations. She did go to that White House Correspondents' Dinner, after all. And she is a living, breathing human being. So, there's that. 

Maybe she could at least scale back her expectations? I mean, Kanye is gonna need a running mate. West/Lohan, 2020? Bet Kim would love that one!
