Julia Louis-Dreyfus Turns 55 — 12 Veep GIFS That Prove She'd Make a Hilarious President

Julia Louis-Dreyfus Turns 55 — 12 Veep GIFS That Prove She'd Make a Hilarious President

Julia Louis-Dreyfus turns 55 Wednesday, and with two iconic roles in award-winning TV shows under her belt, it's safe to say she's accomplished quite a bit. Dreyfus first made us cry of laughter as Elaine Benes on Seinfeld and now elicits the same effect as Selina Meyer, the first female president, on the HBO comedy series Veep

Dreyfus may not play the most eloquent, well-intentioned president, but she hilariously mocks what some imagine goes on behind closed doors in a White House full of narcissistic politicians. She keeps her staff in check with poetic analogies like "that's like using a croissant as a dildo — it doesn't do the job and makes a fucking mess."

Here are 12 classic President Meyer moments that prove she'd make a no-bullshit president IRL:

She's brutally honest about the heartlessness of politicians.

This is so what President Barack Obama was actually whispering to people during his State of the Union entrance.

She whips up the most creative analogies to describe her staff's incompetence. 

She doesn't let running the country interrupt her beauty sleep. 

She uses her expertise on foreign affairs to solicit relationship advice. 

She submits to no alpha male politician bullshit.

She sums up politics in four words: angry, aggressive, dysfunctional men.

President Meyer: She's just like us. 

She'd rather go blind than appear weak.

Simply put, she runs shit.
