On President's Day, Celebrities Honored the Past When America Had a Leader

"In honor of Presidents Day, lie to everyone you meet and form your own criminal syndicate with the fam. Have fun 'til the feds show up."

In the annals of American history, one tradition lost to time is having a president of the United States.

Now, we have a simulation of a dictator who's passionate about internment camps and scaling back LGBTQ communities' fundamental rights, like serving in the military or going to the bathroom. On President's Day, high profile celebrities used their platforms on Twitter to commemorate the role formerly known as "leader of the free world." From Bette Midler's mournful post that President's Day "just reminds me that we don't have one" to Sesame Street's throwback to Big Bird's ambitious campaign in 1976, here were the best celebrity posts honoring this antiquated holiday.

Until next year, do as Jeffrey Wright (Westworld) suggests: "In honor of Presidents Day, lie to everyone you meet and form your own criminal syndicate with the fam. Have fun 'til the feds show up."
