I’m proud to announce that Thaddeus Moose is running for President of the United States. You might know him as “The Moose”. Thaddeus is running on the Be Nice party ticket. As such, his campaign will not be saying anything about other candidates that is not nice. He expects the other candidates will not run attack ads about him; largely because he will not be perceived as a serious candidate. He first ran in 2016 but didn't get enough votes to win.

Thaddeus pledges to make the country and world a nicer place. He will make this his number one issue. He also pledges for campaign reform. His campaign will not accept a single dollar in donations. Although if you want to donate, he wouldn’t mind if you donate to his political action committee and put some moo-lah in the tip jar.

I (Bender the Robot) am really excited to be Thaddeus’ campaign manager at this exciting time. In fact, I myself checked Thaddeus’ eligibility for President of the United States. Thaddeus Moose is a native born citizen of the United States having been initially drawn in the United States by Paul Wheaton. He’s had some plastic surgery (re-drawing) done since to look nicer. While Thaddeus Moose was born in 2000, it is a little known fact that he was frozen for 1000 years with Fry and woke up in the year 3000 for twenty years. He then figured out how to time travel back to five minutes after when he was frozen making him subjectively 40 years old and a permanent resident of the United States for the last 20 years. This makes Thaddeus eligible to run for President.

At least Thaddeus will be old enough to take up the position (≥21) as long as you don't subtract the thousand years of freezing.

35. And the time of freezing doesn't count. That would be absurd! Now the 20 years actually lived in the future counts, because that's how one ages.

Hmm. Maybe that's why the moose needs glasses now.

No, the glasses are only there to make him look more studious; you can tell he has 20‑20 vision just by looking at him.

I suppose you have it in both eyes, not like poor Thaddeus.

Either that, or 10‑10.

First, we need to see his birth certificate. Then, we need to consult with a Russian friend if he will make a good candidate. Lets not forget to see his email accounts too.
