10/10 worked like a treat ;)
21 April 2017 | by uselessemail-75893See all my reviews

I was skeptical at first but after following this simple guide I easily won the presidency. This is a brilliant film that accurately and whimsically examines the main influences leading to the election of the worlds most powerful leaders such as myself; money, lies, money, power and money. All jokes aside this is a great documentary on US political campaigns and who knows what could have happened if only Hillary had got a Netflix account. God bless America
