9 reasons why we should just re-elect Michael D Higgins immediately

The man is a national treasure.

MICHAEL D. HIGGINS has finally announced that he intends to seek a second term as Irish president much to the joy of nearly everyone. While some people have a problem with his age (otherwise known as ageism) most of us believe that he is the best representative that we could have in these troubled political times.

With that in mind, here are 9 reasons why we should forego a presidential election (just this once) and re-elect Michael D immediately.

1. His dogs.

Have you seen Michael D’s dogs? They just follow him around everywhere and are present at all major events that he hosts in the Áras. We need more Áras dogs in our lives please.

2. His wife Sabina.

Who needs Meghan Markle and Prince Harry when we have Michael D and Sabina Higgins?

3. His presence at Irish sporting events.

The best part of the 6 Nations is Michael D Higgins greeting all the very tall rugby players from every nation. If we re-elect him now we get a few more years of Michael D Higgins greeting Devin Toner which is a gift that we all deserve. Plus he loves sports and is a big Ireland fan so honestly what’s the harm?

4. His passion for the Irish language.

Michael D is one of the few public figures who seem to understand the struggles that we have with the Irish language and who is someone who wants to keep it alive by changing how it’s taught. He really does care and we need more of that.

5. His intelligence.

Get yourself a President who knows more Greek poetry than anyone else including Boris Johnson.

6. The memorabilia.

I don’t see any other president with memorabilia that is this good?

7. His ability to deal with dopes.

Remember he called Tea Party lover Michael Graham a wanker on national radio? That is how you deal with people. We don’t deserve Miggeldy tbh.

8. The photos.

We should be re-electing Miggledy for these photos alone.

9. He’s a man of the people.

He doesn’t send his staff to do stuff he can do himself. Not only does he use the ATM like a regular Joe soap, he also queues for it. THE PRESIDENT QUEUES FOR THE ATM. WHY WOULD WE NOT RE-ELECT THIS MAN?

Need we say more?
