“What’s wrong with having a hooker as a First Lady?”
~You, the Reader
Do you know that we have to write fifteen different ways to introduce this series of articles that, if anything, will later be used as evidence for our staff’s eventual Obsessive Compulsion Disorder diagnosis. We dug up all 142 fictional Presidents who have ever made an appearance in a film, and if that wasn’t already exhausting for everyone involved, we decided to rank those Presidents and spread the whole thing out into 15 different articles. You can see all the others by clicking the various links in this paragraph, and no, they’re not in order, because this process has driven us insane. Okay, all caught up? No? Too fucking bad, here are more Presidents.

~Um, just the motherfucking Robocop
Many classic characters have been created for art and film. There’s Hamlet, Sherlock Holmes, that one dude in The Wire that wasn’t Omar but had the bow tie, all of these characters are memorable parts of our culture’s collective memory.
Come to think of it, Omar might be a slightly more memorable character.
So given this absolutely complete list of popular characters of film, stage, and (ugh) literature, what do they have in common? Passion? Eloquence? An enviable fashion sense? Well, none of them hold a candle to the figure of today’s AFFotD, who is of course…
The Motherfucking Robocop.
