There’s no doubt about it; Donald Trump knows how to generate media buzz. The host of NBC’s Apprentice and now presidential contender says what he means and means what he says. He’s worth 9 billion dollars, he has the most iconic head of hair in the world, and he’s promising to “Make America Great Again” if he wins the presidential election in 2016. While the American public will certainly have to decide for themselves if he’s the best choice for the 44th president, there’s little question that a President Trump would make quite a few things great again, starting with Saturday Night Live.

Here are 16 reasons voting for the Donald in 2016 could make the news, late night comedy, and a whole bunch of other things in the media great again going forward.
