OP, please add Pile of Crap Covered in Vomitus and on Fire to the choices. This will serve to make both Politicians and Celebrities look better.

Thanks for your consideration.

I would say the ones who believe they are the other.

IE, politicians who believe they are celebrities and celebrities who believe they are politicians.

And for those that have been both:
B list movie star becomes excellent president.
reality TV star becomes worst president
Not ready for prime time player and writer becomes Senator, and is forced to resign
A list movie star & director seems to be mayor.
A list movie star becomes governer
Love Boat actor serves 4 terms as a rep for Iowa.
"I got you babe" becomes mayor and congressman
"The Body" becomes MN gov.
TN GOP Senator who investigated Nixon was certainly a "Law and Order" guy.

Politicians by a mile. Celebrities impact my life zero, these asshole politicians can fuck an entire economy and arguably decades of progress in under ten days. It’s not even close.

Politician. A celebrity's arrogance comes from others. A politician's arrogance comes from himself/herself.

Reagan was pretty good if that is who you are referring to but if I recall correctly he was not as highly regarded during his tenure as he is now.

All these celebrities are posting about going "make-up free" but all year long hock their cruddy make up products to the public. Just proves they do not use the very garbage they sell and if their stylist, cosmetologist or beautician isn't available they will not use the make-up or hair dye they're spokespeople for.

politicians are celebrities. its a fucking popularity contest where even the president of the united states is more concerned with chasing wealth and likes on twitter than running the fucking country.
