Donald Trump

When you think about it, a Trump presidency makes perfect sense. He personifies as much as anyone the self-delusion and mindless hype that characterize contemporary capitalism. This is a man who has filed for bankruptcy three times, yet the media celebrate him as a financial wizard, a modern-day King Midas. Who better to preside over a government that gives money to bankers who collapsed the economy? Who better to preside over an unwinnable war in Afghanistan? Who better to preside over a bubble economy heading for another crash?

The downside to a Trump presidency is that we will have to spend four years looking at his weird hair.

Fun Fact: Donald Trump and John Boehner both belong to the same orange-skinned hominid species!
