The Best Fictional President
5. President Skroob, Spaceballs
In space, no one can hear you scream. Also, no one will listen to your concerns about the stupidity, incompetence, and 1-2-3-4-5 luggage combination of the President. Quit complaining. Space is supposed to be fun.
4. President Schwarzenegger, Simpsons Movie
Animation is a beautiful thing. It's why Springfield is a small town with everything the writers could ever need. It's why Homer can suffer every injury ever and keep on truckin'. Most importantly, it's how we can ignore the whole "natural born citizen" Constitutional requirement and make a dangerously unprepared Austrian bodybuilder the leader of the free world.
3. Tom Beck, Deep Impact
All the really important Presidents carried this country through something traumatic: a world war, an economic catastrophe, their own personal sex scandal. Not only did Tom Beck see the country through an extinction-level event, he's also got the perfect mellifluous voice to narrate a Ken Burns documentary about everything that went down.
2. Thomas Whitmore, Independence Day
Thomas Whitmore gave a speech that brought the entire planet together, and he did it before Barack Obama was even a thing. It wasn't quite good enough to make him #1 in the fake POTUS power rankings, but he's still one of the very best Presidents in the history of Earf.
1. James Marshall, Air Force One
97% of Americans find the line "Get off my plane" more memorable than any statement by any real life President, according to a statistical study I made up. And if you can think of a more important Presidential statement, you must not have spent sophomore US History flirting with Jess Henriksen.
