Consider a world in which Adam Carolla, a New York Times bestselling author, comedian, actor, television host, and podcast host, is President of the United States. Don't think you'll be able to do it? You're not obligated to! Adam has taken care of it for you!
In his New York Times best-sellerIn... Fifty Years We'll All Be Chicks, podcast king Adam Carolla first shared his unique, but always hilarious world view—but he's not done yet.
Carolla shares his vision for a different, better America in President Me, which is free of big issues like big government and small issues like hotel alarm clock placement. President Carolla, who is running on an anti-narcissism platform, calls for a return to the values of a bygone era when stew and casserole were on every dinner table and there were no "service dogs" on planes.President Mehits right at the heart of what makes our country so irritating, and offers a plan to make all of our lives, but especially Adam's, much better.
More importantly, as comedians, our job is to say what is on our minds. Unfiltered and un-focus-group-tested. That’s what drives me nuts when yours truly and other comedians get gang-raped on Twitter every time we say something controversial. We’re comedians, not politicians. We should not be held to the same standard. We’re not just allowed—we’re required to do what a politician can’t do. And that’s to be honest. Everyone talks a good game about wanting their politicians to speak their mind, but then look at who gets elected—sociopaths, narcissists, sex offenders, and liars.
But our leaders can’t tell the truth. We won’t let them. We’ve created a society where the politicians aren’t allowed to criticize the people. There’s no tough love coming out of the White House or Congress. They’ve gone from leaders and legislators to wedding caterers. If they want to keep the gig, they better give us what we want.
Humans need challenges to overcome, just like a muscle needs resistance to grow. In a zero-gravity environment, an astronaut’s muscles atrophy because there is no resistance. The government giving you a bunch of handouts and living your life for you is the equivalent of doing push-ups in outer space. Big government is like the void of space—it’s massive, constantly expanding, and if we immerse ourselves in it, we’ll simply wither away.
