‘Wishin’ we had a real one’: Internet celebrates #PresidentsDay2018 by fantasizing about having a different — and better — US president
President Donald Trump urged Americans to “reflect” on Presidents Day — but many social media users fantasized about past and fictional chief executives.
Former presidents such George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and Barack Obama were celebrated by many Twitter users, while others pined for would-be presidents.
I am honoring the President that Americans elected in 2016 by changing my avi to Hillary Clinton. #PresidentsDay2018

It’s been 396 days since a real President worked (not watched cable news) in the White House.
It will be another 988 days before we have our next real President work in the White House.#PresidentsDay2018
