President Thomas J. Whitmore: basically the male Laura Roslin.

It's the slow month of August, 90s nostalgia is hitting full swing this decade, and you could use some simple "if this famous person did what another famous person did" joy. Here's a nineties-tastic mashup of Gilbert Gottfried doing Bill Pullman's iconic speech from 1996's Independence Day, where he informs a ragtag army of drifters from the American Southwest that they and a montage of foreigners are about to fly planes from the 1970s and 80s against an interstellar fleet of city-destroying spaceships that are several kilometers in diameter. (The montage of foreigners is later and includes some Egyptians who have chosen a spot about 1000 yards from the Pyramids to regroup—and if I was avoiding aliens, the Pyramids would be the last place I'd go.)
