Here’s a blog tribute to the bravery of Emilie, her friend and her cat named Limberbutt during the 2016 elections. It was just a joke (of course) filing a candidacy for a cat in the US Presidential elections but it was actually not the first in the election history. There was a boar in the 1960s name Pigasus and Molly the dog in 2008 who were also filed to run for the said important position.
People make fun of these serious events in the US for many reasons but I believe this was just an expression of something that is deeper, wanting to imply that the right to lead and the right to live their rights is for every citizen of USA. My country is known to respect everyone’s freedom. It should not just be known as a trademark alone. No one in the position should suppress us from living that special freedom. Thanks to Limberbutt for reminding us this very important factor.
