Late last year, the internet brought us politicians with man buns. Now, we have presidential candidates with beards.
A community user on BuzzFeed, who runs a digital marketing agency, hired Hrach Drambyan to photoshop beards on the 2016 presidential candidates. The results are hilariously brilliant.
Candidates We Have (Happily) Said Goodbye To
The One Candidate Even Republicans Would Vote For If He Was In The Race
The Republican Candidates Still In The Running
The Two Democrat Presidential Hopefuls Still In The Race
The great thing about these photoshopped pictures is some of the politicians actually look better with facial hair. For example, Donald Trump looks more intelligent with a beard than he does without one. Honestly, I didn’t think that was possible.
Of all these pictures, my personal favorite is Marco Rubio’s beard. I find this hilarious considering Rubio’s hatred of the Cuban dictator. I just love that Drambyan not only put what appears to be Fidel Castro’s beard on Rubio, but also left Castro’s signature cigar in place.
Whether it is Rubio, Trump, Hillary, or Sanders, it is very unlikely that our next president will start wearing a beard. It is quite interesting that only nine of our 44 presidents wore beards, while a handful more wore some type of facial hair. With beards being in fashion these days, I think it is time we have another president who wears one. Well, unless our next president is Hillary.
