President Donald J. Trump has made history. He has not only proven that he can beat a Clinton without losing a family member to a freak accident, but he has also proven that a person can obtain the highest political office by simply being a celebrity. Now that President Trump has broken the barriers that have kept celebrities who have never held a political office out of political office, names of people like Lebron James, Beyonce, Kanye West, Tom Brady, Kim Kardashian, and Taylor Swift are among those being circulated as possibilities for a similar run to office. Here is a breakdown of some factors they may be judged on, along with a campaign quote by the potential candidates addressing each factor.
Fame Factor: 10 - "Everybody know me."
Public Hate Factor: 9 - "10 percent haterless"
Chance of Running: 5 - "Imma prolly do it, but I don't know. I prolly will tho ... maybe."

Fame Factor: 8 with Jay-Z, 9 without- "I don't care about fame. I don't think anything at all about the 423 new Twitter followers and the 567 new Facebook followers I got last month. I mean ... who's counting?"
Public Hate Factor: 1 - "My husband don't like when people be hating on me."
Chance of Running: 1 - "I don't even like what they be makin' the presidents wear."
Chance of Winning: 9 - "Who run the world!?"

Fame Factor: 6 for Kim, 9 for Kim's ass - "I have the formula for fame. Ass + Home Movie = More Fame."
Public Hate Factor: 5.8 or 58%, the approximate female population - "Every man I'm with says they love me."
Chance of Running: 1 - "I don't run ... I spin."
Chance of Winning: 1 - "Don't you like ... sweat ... when you compete?"
Chance of Fucking Things Up Worse Than Trump: 9, 10 if she tries to be productive - "I love fucking things!"
Since Kim and Beyonce probably don't care enough to run, they can be eliminated as potential winners in the next election. Due to Taylor Swift's age, she is going to have to keep practicing running the world until she reaches the old age of 35. Lebron James would be interested at first, but would likely have a hard time establishing residency because of his inability to stay in one place. This puts the race between Tom Brady and Kanye West. While it's tempting to lean on Brady after he has demonstrated his Teflon-like ability to evade prosecution and his desire to win at all costs, the victory would likely go to Kanye. Even after the votes are counted in Brady's favor and he prepares to greet his nation, Kanye grabs the microphone and explains how he really won. Amidst the confusion, a new president claims the throne, alongside First Lady Kim Kardashian.
