A Year in Hillary Clinton’s Presidency

“Careful Bill, they said not to touch anything!” snapped Commander in Chief Hillary Clinton.

The object was clean, dynamic and shiny; a drone for Syria that had been in the making for over a year. The Clintons had been exploring the Pentagon for the past half hour; Bill couldn’t help but touch his surroundings because of his affinity for shiny, pretty things.

“It’s perfect. ISIS won’t see us coming. No one will even remember 2012,” Hillary gleamed.

As the former Secretary of State during the Obama administration, Clinton had plenty of time to do what she loved: send emails, delete emails and not so tentatively deal with foreign policy.

The average American has not only survived the past year in her presidency, but thrived and enjoyed their ride to work deportation-free. Millions of construction workers and laborers have provided for their families by building all sorts of things, however, not as many walls as one would presume.

Additionally, children of all socio-economic statuses have enjoyed affordable healthcare, journalists still have jobs and immigrants are enjoying a streamlined process that makes being American slightly less strenuous.

While the past year has been great for many Americans, it has not been a breeze for everyone. Most Trump voters have gone back to a business-as-usual lifestyle much like Trump himself, but not everyone has taken Clinton’s victory so well.

The Bible Belt has seen factions of former Trump supporters take up arms, leave their neighborhoods and form their own little “reservations” where America can truly be great again—because reservations have been so “great” historically.

The Great Again factions get smaller and smaller each day though, apparently being treated differently for their beliefs was hard for them to handle—many could not stick it out and returned to the rest of society, enjoying their healthcare and all of their first amendment rights.

Meanwhile, Congress has subdued its usual divisionary tactics, yet Clinton has still been unable to pass her debt-free college plan due to pesky filibusters. Obamacare received a dashing make-over and was not renamed Clintoncare thanks to the work of Manny Flewinsky, Clinton’s favorite intern, for talking her out of that one.

The Obama administration brought the U.S. some first-class entertainment, with President Obama appearing on late-night talk shows reading “mean tweets” and delivering some serious acting skills. The Obama children stunned citizens with their part-time work, trendy outfits and lack of public controversy. Additionally, Michelle Obama always rocked the hot-mom look and gave her input on issues like children’s health. The Clintons were excited to follow in the Obama’s footsteps—at first. They soon realized that the Obama’s natural grace and cool demeanors are not so easy to replicate.

Clinton has been the most retweeted gif on Twitter ever since she was recorded doing her rendition of “Single Ladies” on the White House lawn much to her chagrin. Her dance skills have not been the only strange sight on the lawn; there has been an unmarked black van sporting a satellite dish parked outside since her inauguration.

The Clintons have had a stable year back in the White House, most of the staff remembered where everything goes, as well as all of the best hiding spots for when the first husband gets bored. Hillary’s attempts to better the American education system have been slow but not in vain, and she has improved the immigration process and managed to keep the U.S. out of another war.

For now.
