Is Cthulhu eligible to be US president?  Given his apparent age as an Ancient Power, he clearly wasn't born in the "United States", which leaves qualification by residency at the time of founding.  Where was his abode at the time?

Yes, Cthulu for President!

After all, why settle for the lesser of two evils?
(Or, three, in the present case).

Last time I looked, R'lyeh isn't, and hasn't ever been, part of the United States, so Cthulhu is ineligible for the office of President. Sorry guys; you'll have to settle for one of the Lesser Evils.

Old idea. I remember seeing "Cthulhu for President" pins in 1984.

What about some of the entities that live around New England? Surely a Deep One would be eligible?

Pity. Cthulhu might be better qualified then the choices presented so far.

He would probably have to produce a plausible birth certificate.

Although R'lyeh might fall within one of the Trust territories or Pacific island groups like Kwajelien etc  - which might explain the testing of certain fissionable devices in the vicinity, just in case....

There has been a suggestion to replace Nigel Farage with Cthulhu for a more informed viewpoint and more respect for the world.
Similar suggestions have been made about David Cameron.

It is widely assumed that all members of the attempted Labour Coup against Jeremy Corbyn are tentacles of Cthulhu.

It is therefore unlikely that Cthulhu will be able to run America since the UK screw up is such thorough chaos that he will be too busy promoting disaster in the UK to also run the USA.  However various corporations, gun lobbies and right wing "religious" organizations will pick up the slack.
