If you are totally ready to move on from Donald Trump, you're not alone. According to a report last April from the Wason Center National Survey of 2020 Voters, "President Trump will be the least popular president to run for reelection in the history of polling."

Yes, you read that right, "history of polling."


According to Gallup, his approval rating hasn't really changed since that report. As of October 31, only 41% of Americans approve of the job Trump is doing.

A recent report in Bloomberg found that Trump ranks 10th of 11 polling-era presidents after 1,027 days in office, and his disapproval number is now up to 54.6%.

So people are already fantasizing about a magical day in January 2021 and they wake up to a new president being sworn into office.

No more crazy 6 am Twitter rants. No more president calling every news report he doesn't like "fake." No more glad-handing with ruthless autocrats. No more bullying and schoolyard nicknames for his political opponents.

Hopefully it's a kinder person who instills a feeling of warmth and pride to be an American instead of a sense of dread and chaos.

Thousands of Twitter users are sounding off who about they type of person they'd like to see in office under #IHopeOurNextPresident. Most of them, it seems, just want a decent human that can handle the job and isn't embarrassing.

Some hope our next president is a functional human being.



Some hope out next president is a decent human being.



A lot of people hope our next president is female.



Some hope it's Mark Del Figgalo. Whoever the hell that is.



Some hope our next president is Democrat Andrew Yang.



Others hope it's "Uncle" Joe Biden.



Some hope the next president isn't a major creep.



Some just hope the next president isn't a racist.



Some just hope it isn't Donald Trump.

Some beauty pageants, like the Miss America competition, have done away with the swimsuit portions of the competitions, thus dipping their toes in the 21st century. Other aspects of beauty pageants remain stuck in the 1950s, and we're not even talking about the whole "judging women mostly on their looks" thing. One beauty pageant winner was disqualified for being a mom, as if you can't be beautiful after you've had a kid. Now she's trying to get the Miss World competition to update their rules.

Veronika Didusenko won the Miss Ukraine pageant in 2018. After four days, she was disqualified because pageant officials found out she was a mom to 5-year-old son Alex, and had been married. Didusenko said she had been aware of Miss World's rule barring mother from competing, but was encouraged to compete anyways by pageant organizers.

One mystery in our universe is a step closer to being solved. NASA's Parker Solar Probe launched last year to help scientists understand the sun. Now, it has returned its first findings. Four papers were published in the journal Nature detailing the findings of Parker's first two flybys. It's one small step for a solar probe, one giant leap for mankind.



It is astounding that we've advanced to the point where we've managed to build a probe capable of flying within 15 million miles from the surface of the sun, but here we are. Parker can withstand temperatures of up to 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit and travels at 430,000 miles per hour. It's the fastest human-made vehicle, and no other human-made object has been so close to the sun.

Since the mid '90s the phrase "God Forgives, Brothers Don't" has been part of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point's football team's lexicon.

Over the past few years, the team has taken the field flying a black skull-and-crossbones flag with an acronym for the phrase, "GFBD" on the skull's upper lip. Supporters of the team also use it on social media as #GFBD.
