20 Dec 2018 - Anthony

Everyone has unique insight: you just have to ask the right questions. In this series, we probe into the lives of "average" people, along the way encountering the undeniable beauty of human life.

Here in part two, we meet a politically refined thinker with an ear for music.

Which party do you stand with?

In my opinion, it’s not about the party. I’m with whichever one’s better.

If there was one thing you could change about our government, what would it be?

The current president.

Who is your favorite politician?

Queen Elizabeth II. It’s amazing how she’s such an icon but has no actual power.

Who is your least favorite politician?

Trump. He’s just stupid.

If you were president for one day, what would you do?

I wouldn’t change any laws, I’d just chill at the white house. Prank the secret service and act like I’m dead or something.

In your opinion, what’s the best country and why?

Probably the United States. I mean, I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else.

Who do you think is the most admirable world leader?

Queen Elizabeth II. Because their country isn’t as much of a mess as ours.

Outside of politics, who is the person you admire most, historical or contemporary?

I gotta go with lil’ pump. The way he does everything is just amazing. The way he came to fame, the way he carries himself, it’s just otherworldly.

Finally, what’s your greatest life accomplishment?

A 4 on the AP Human Geography Exam.
