The lack of diversity among American presidents is appalling.
There has never been a President of Italian descent, or a President who publicly identified as gay or transgender.

What are your thoughts on the GOP’s field of presidential hopefuls?
I’m finding them incredibly amusing. They’re so ridiculous that it’s entertainment. I can’t imagine that America would be that insane to put any of these people in [the White House]. I just have to believe that the GOP just wrote off this time and said, ‘We don’t care. Anybody can run!’ ’Cause this can’t be the best they can do.
