Modern-day media has changed forever with the introduction of social media.
The days of Hollywood picking who and who cannot be a star are officially finished.
Stardom can be obtained by simply going on to YouTube and posting videos and that’s exactly what has happened with Mr. Beast also known as Jimmy Donaldson.
Jimmy Donaldson has been able to amass over 105 million subscribers on YouTube and has announced he may plan to run for President in 20 years.
Donaldson however didn’t say which party name he would run under though.

The Hill had more details to add:
YouTube personality Jimmy Donaldson, known as MrBeast, said he would consider running for president in 20 years.
“Maybe in like 20 years,” Donaldson said of the possibility of running for the White House in a recent interview. “We’ll see.”
Donaldson, who has 105 million subscribers on his YouTube channel, said he thinks it could be “fun” to run when he’s in his 40s.
“I think we’re due for younger presidents,” he said. “I’m tired of them always being in their 70s.”
At 79, President Biden is the oldest person to ever assume the office. Former President Trump took the oath of office at age 70. Both men are considered likely candidates for the 2024 presidential election.
Donaldson also suggested that he would give away all of his wealth prior to running for office.
“I want to try to make a ton of money and then just like give it all away right before I announce my campaign,” he said. “Imagine I have like $10 billion and then I just give it all away and I’m just like ‘I can’t be bought.’ … That’s pretty powerful.”
I really want @MrBeast to be president but run the country like his videos.
