"I really enjoy Theodore Roosevelt because, he made the park system. I just love being outside and exploring the natural resources and he just had such a commitment to the environment and just preserving that for future generations which I really appreciate."
"Donald Trump because the stock market is rising, everything about it right now is just pumping. I am a stock trader so it's like, easier to make money in it. It's a lot better and everything is doing well.
"My favorite president has been Obama, because he was hella supportive of gay rights, I am pretty queer myself. He was black so a plus for that. And he just like instituted... he pretty much tried to do everything that he said he would do which is kind of unlikely for a president I've noticed."
"President Taft because he got stuck in a bathtub."
"So my favorite president I would have to say is George Washington he was the first and uh... He had both the soft and the hard skills required for the office and I think he balanced them well."
“My favorite president is Donald Trump because not only was he a good actor, because he made me laugh in certain movies. And I think he sure knows how to get things done around here.”
"My favorite president is Abraham Lincoln because he went against what was popular for something he believed in."
"My favorite president would be Ronald Reagan, mainly for his ideas on economics and the America first policy with his Reaganomics. And his war on drugs at the time was a really good one to try and get drugs off of the street. And that's why I just like him. And, he had a pet monkey at one point."
"My favorite president is George Washington because he started what we got today."
"My favorite president is Donald J. Trump. He is cutting my taxes and he promised as long as he is president our second amendment rights will not be infringed."
