Gender Fuck Thursday: Presidential Edition

In between near-daily panic attacks that a racist, sexist, anti-Semitic, homophobic xenophobe could become president and gain access to our country’s nuclear codes, I remain cautiously optimistic that a smart, capable, infinitely qualified woman will finally, finally break the 227-year male stranglehold on our nation’s presidency. But until then, please enjoy these famous presidential speeches reimaged through some famous female voices. Here are Bryce Dallas Howard (“Jurassic World”) as Abraham Lincoln, Becki Newton (“Ugly Betty”) as John F. Kennedy, Deborah Ann Woll (“True Blood”) as Lyndon Johnson, Gillian Zinser (“90210”) as Jimmy Carter, and Robinne Lee (“Hitch”) as Barack Obama. I know, the suits don’t hurt either. Just 123 more days to go, folks. Vote.

Very cool! I've watched it twice so far and shared on Google+, because I think everyone should see it, American or not. Hell, I'm Canadian and I worry the doofus might get into office too. Since you can't keep the current POTUS in office, Hillary is the best bet, not only for you, but for the entire world. Shudder to think where the world will end up if DJT gets in.
