  • First female to be elected president, replacing President Morse.
  • Native of Lake Placid and former junior senator from New York.
  • Divorced from Aaron Keane, an anthropologist.
  • Voted in favour of the Iraq War, but later developed an anti-war sentiment after her son Andrew Keane was killed while deployed in the conflict.
  • Ran for President in 2016 alongside Ralph Warner, who later became her Vice President.
  • Evacuated to a safehouse after an terrorist attack in Midtown Manhattan takes place near her transition offices, but later returns against the advice of the Secret Service.
  • Survives two assassination attempts orchestrated by rogue elements of the US government, the United States Army and the United States Intelligence Community, in addition to a smear campaign intended to discredit her before being sworn in. As a result of the attempts on her life, Keane becomes the first president in the history of the United States to be inaugurated behind closed doors.
  • Later develops severe paranoia as a result of the attempts on her life, which culminates in her administration extending the PATRIOT Act and using the new provisions to carry out a mass arrest of government and intelligence officials she suspected conspired against her, with many being detained without probable cause. This move causes her administration to be investigated by Sam Paley, a United States Senator from Arizona, who desires to appoint a special prosecutor with regard to her actions.
  • Personally advocates that General Jamie McClendon, one of the main conspirators in her assassination attempt, should be given the death penalty during his Court-martial, and is infuriated upon hearing he is only given life imprisonment. McClendon later dies in prison under mysterious circumstances.
  • Her administration is later also targeted by a campaign of information warfare masterminded by the Russian government and the GRU in an attempt to trigger a constitutional crisis and discredit and remove her from office. This campaign includes implicating her White House Chief of Staff David Wellington in the death of General McClendon, and on utilising the investigation being performed by Senator Paley, feeding him a steady dose of false information to further damage her presidency.
  • Machinations by Senator Paley and Vice President Ralph Warner result in them attempting to get the Cabinet of the United States to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Keane from office, arguing her poor handling of the situation shows she is unable to discharge the duties of the office. Keane attempts to circumvent this by firing certain members of the cabinet, but the Supreme Court of the United States rules that the method she employed to fire them was unlawful, thus they can remain. This results in the 25th Amendment being officially invoked, with Keane being removed from her office and Warner taking over as Acting President until impeachment proceedings can be posed to congress.
  • Is reinstated as President after testimony made to the Senate Intelligence Committee by Russian agent Simone Martin absolves her of any wrongdoing, and fully reveals the extent of the Russian interference in her administration. However, knowing that her reputation has been tainted in the public eye and that the American people need a leader they can trust to go forward with democracy, she resigns in favour of Vice President Ralph Warner.

  • Came from an observant Jewish family, but it is never specified if she practised the faith herself.
  • In office during a crisis involving a large asteroid, codenamed "Samson", heading towards the Earth.
  • Was revealed that the previous administration masterminded the Atlas Program, which involved the weaponization of asteroids to be used as weapons against enemies of the United States. One such asteroid was crashed in Russia in 2012.
  • Suffered from a stroke while giving a televised address to the nation about impending crisis, before she could say anything about the actual asteroid.
  • The nation was told she had passed away, and Vice President Monroe Bennett assumed the presidency under the 25th Amendment.
  • Later revealed that her illness and stroke were orchestrated by Vice President Bennett, who had slowly been poisoning her with mercury in her asthma inhaler.
  • Later revealed to be alive and recovering in secret, having been rescued by United States Secret Service agents loyal to her presidency, who feared what those loyal to Vice President Bennett would do if they discovered she had survived. The agents diverted her upon arrival at George Washington University Hospital, where they convinced her personal physician to tell the public she had died. Her family's Judaism, which forbids any desecration of a corpse, was used as the justification for her being buried without an autopsy being performed.
  • Later works with Secretary of Defense Harris Edwards to have President Monroe Bennett captured and detained beneath the White House, allowing her to approach the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Cabinet in The Pentagon to request she be reinstated. After hearing of Monroe's treachery, they take her side.
  • During a press conference where she announces the attempted coup d'etat, the Emergency Alert System takes over the broadcast before she can announce the impending asteroid collision. However, it is revealed that the missiles have been hijacked by hacker group RE/SYST, causing Mackenzie to not take immediate retaliatory action against the Russian government.
  • Nominates billionaire aerospace scientist Darius Tanz to serve as her Vice President after the arrest of Monroe Bennett, believing his lack of political history and good rapport with the public will help her administration.
  • Has her presidency challenged again when Monroe Bennett emerges from hiding after escaping custody and takes his case to the Supreme Court of the United States, arguing he is still lawful President and his removal from office was illegal and unconstitutional. However, when it appears the court is going to vote in Mackenzie's favour, he orchestrates bombing of the building which seriously injures the Chief Justice, whose swing vote in the decision had yet to be announced.
  • After the Supreme Court bombing, the capital falls into chaos as infighting between United States Armed Forces factions loyal to Bennett and others to Mackenzie battle one another to take control. US Army and Secret Service officers loyal to Bennett are able to lock down and infiltrate the White House, finally capturing and detaining a defiant Mackenzie in the Oval Office.
  • However, just as a victorious Bennett is about to address the nation, video footage of the now conscious Chief Justice is broadcast on all networks and cell phones, in which he confirms his vote in Mackenzie's favour, shifting the decision to 5-4 and rendering her the legal president. After a brief standoff, the soldiers accompanying Bennett realise they have been deceived and reaffirm their allegiance to Mackenzie.
  • However, despite re-securing her presidency for a second time, she is shot and killed by a remote controlled sniper rifle while leaving a "Unity Rally" held to celebrate the supposed return to normalcy for her administration.
  • She is buried in Arlington National Cemetery in a highly televised funeral. Darius Tanz, her recently appointed Vice President, assumes the office of the President under the 25th Amendment after her death.
  • Played by: Tovah Feldshuh
  • Party affiliation unknown.

Mostly focused his efforts on weakening the country (such as not taking steps to stabilize the economy) as part of the overall conspiracy, and attempting to cover up his connection to said conspiracy by giving a shoot-to-kill order on the man who attempted to assassinate Kirkman, overriding his advisors' orders to take the man alive.
  • Relieved of his emergency duties once Kirkman successfully recovered from surgery. Shortly thereafter, Kirkman arranged an FBI sting to expose MacLeish's involvement in the conspiracy.

President Henry Talbot MacNeilEdit

  • President in: Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea
  • Voyage ran for four seasons, from 1964–1968, but was set in the years 1973–1980. President MacNeil was elected in 1972 and evidently won re-election in 1976. His character appeared in at least a half-dozen episodes of the series, all in its first and second seasons. By all accounts he was extremely popular president domestically, and was extremely effective internationally. In one episode, it is stated that "Only MacNeil was able to prevent World War III when the peace talks broke down in 1973, and again last year." In addition to being president, he was on a first name basis with Admiral Harriman Nelson (Richard Basehart) and the two of them regularly played poker.

  • The US defeats all other countries in the world in a single year, MacPherson becomes President of Earth.
  • Atomic weapons in the story very different from those actually developed later on. The "MacPherson Gun" has the size, shape and weight of an ordinary rifle but a destructive power "ten thousand times that of heavy artillery".
  • George MacPherson did all that mainly in an effort to impress Claire, with whom he fell in love when he was 15 and the only woman he ever loved or will love. However, even when he offers her a chance to become The First Lady of Earth, Claire still prefers to marry Allen, the man which she had loved since her teen years, a criminal lawyer in the small Idaho town where all three of them came from.
  • Considering suicide on the night of Claire and Allen's marriage, George MacPherson concludes unhappily that he must continue the work he begun and consolidate the World State - "I have created this trap for myself, and there is no way out".

President Selina Catherine MeyerEdit

  • President in Veep (Season 3–5, 7)
  • Born Selina Catherine Eaton.
  • Married, and later divorced Andrew Meyer, the father of her daughter, Catherine.
  • Former Senator from Maryland who lost in her party's presidential primary to Stuart Hughes, and then became Hughes' running mate and eventual Vice President.
  • Initially sidelined in the Hughes Administration, Meyer gained more influence after successfully campaigning during the 2014 midterm elections and ended up announcing her candidacy for President in 2016 after President Hughes elected not to run again due to a spy scandal that threatened impeachment.
  • After President Hughes resigned to care for his mentally ill wife, Meyer is inaugurated as the first female President, and appoints Senator Andrew Doyle as her Vice President.
  • During her eight-month term, she sought to introduce a far-reaching subsidized childcare program funded through the scrapping of unnecessary defense systems. However, due to the potential jobs losses this would incur and an accidental pledge to increase nuclear defense spending made during Meyer's inaugural State of the Union address due to one of President Hughes' old speeches being run on the teleprompter, the White House lobbies for the bill to get voted down, prompting a congressional inquiry. This inquiry inadvertently made public the 2016 Meyer Campaign's use of targeted campaigning aimed at bereaved parents.
  • Narrowly wins her party's nomination in the 2016 Presidential Election, and selects Senator Tom James as her running mate to replace Doyle.
  • Experiences a tied election after she and her competitor Senator Bill O'Brien both receive 269 electoral college votes in the 2016 Presidential Election. A recount in Nevada not only maintains the Electoral College tie but loses Meyer her lead in the popular vote.

  • After the tie in the House, the Senate must vote to appoint a Vice President from the two presidential nominees' running mates (James and Montez) as per the Twentieth Amendment to the United States Constitution.
  • The Senate vote also results in a tie, which is broken by incumbent Vice President Andrew Doyle in his capacity as President of the Senate. Doyle selects Laura Montez, O'Brien's running mate and a member of the opposing party, as revenge against Selina Meyer for backtracking on her offer to make him Secretary of State if she won the election.
  • As the office of president is vacant due to the tied House vote, and the House announces that a second vote to determine the President will not be cast, now Vice President Laura Montez immediately ascends to the presidency, replacing Meyer.
  • Post presidency, Meyer sets up The Meyer Fund, takes part in election monitoring on behalf of the United Nations in the Republic of Georgia, and enters into a relationship with Qatari Ambassador Mohammed Al Jaffar. However, when documents leak resulting in the public becoming aware of her actions during her presidency that helped free Tibet from the People's Republic of China, her popularity soars and gives her the confidence to run again in the 2020 presidential election.
  • Is presented with a lower ranking award from the Nobel Foundation for her actions in freeing Tibet, however during her time in Oslo a warrant for her arrest is issued by the International Criminal Court due to accusations of her administration committing war crimes by violating Pakistan airspace and using a drone to kill innocent civilians at a terrorist's wedding. She is able to escape back to the United States with help from the Finnish Embassy and the President of Georgia.
  • Is able to narrowly secure her party's nomination for president during the 2020 National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina. However in doing so she is forced to alienate and dismiss her entire former team, ruin the lives of her former friends and competitors, and accept her former assistant and congressman from New Hampshire Jonah Ryan as her running mate.
  • Defeats President Laura Montez, and serves a single four year term as president. However, this was achieved through election interference in collusion with China in exchange for the unchallenged re-annexation of Tibet; Montez, running against Meyer, would have been guaranteed reelection otherwise, according to Chinese polling data.
  • Successful in permanently overturning same-sex marriage (a promise made to the Governor of Nevada Buddy Calhoun to get his endorsement but never intended to fulfil), resulting in a permanent rift with Catherine.
  • Dies in 2045 of natural causes, reported as having died somewhere between the ages of 75 and 77. After resting in state at the United States Capitol she is interred at her presidential library at Smith College, Massachusetts. Upon being interred in the crypt, coverage of her funeral is immediately pushed out of the news cycle by the death of Tom Hanks at the age of 88.
  • Party: Not mentioned (but implied by the blue color identifying the states she wins in the election as Democrat).
  • Played by: Julia Louis-Dreyfus

President Jeffrey MichenerEdit

  • Native of Evanston, Illinois.

However, he organised for his son to be transported to the stadium from an infected location in Ann Arbor, Michigan, causing a mass outbreak of the virus in the southern United States. His son and wife later died, but he was forced to kill his daughters to spare their suffering after they became infected with the Red Flu.
  • Naturally immune to the Red Flu, he was taken in and brainwashed into becoming a puppet of Sean Ramsay, leader of the quasi-fascist 'Immunes', who plan to murder all survivors who are not naturally immune. He was later rescued from the 'Immunes' by United States Navy sailors from the USS Nathan James, and as the only surviving member of the presidential line of succession assumed the role of President after his rescue.
  • Attempts to commit suicide due to the guilt of mercy killing his family, but later recovers and supports the Nathan James in their mission to spread the cure and defeat the 'Immunes'.
  • Declares St. Louis, Missouri the new capital of the United States after he is officially sworn in as president in the season 2 finale and establishes the Old St. Louis Courthouse as the new White House.
  • Appointed Howard Oliver, the former Mayor of St. Louis, as his Vice President, Alex Rivera as Secretary of Foreign Affairs, Tom Chandler as Chief of Naval Operations, Allison Shaw as Chief of Staff, and Kara Green as Deputy Chief of Staff.
  • His policies during the post-plague reconstruction of the United States, which included; the rationing of food, the restriction on cash withdrawals from banks, and restriction of land ownership rights, were criticised by regional leaders across the country.
  • Apparently commits suicide after AMT reporter Jacob Barnes revealed his complicity in the Doak Campbell Stadium outbreak and is succeeded by Vice President Howard Oliver.
  • It is later revealed that his "suicide" was actually an assassination, carried out by Secret Service agents loyal to Chief of Staff Allison Shaw and the regional leaders, who seek to disband the United States federal government. The purpose of this would be to elevate Vice President Howard Oliver to power, and as Oliver (unlike Michener) still had surviving family and friends, he could be easier blackmailed into becoming a puppet for their cause.

  • The grandson, Harris Moffatt III, was faced with a demand of the Krolp to conduct strip mining for silver and a small amount of gold miles below the surface of northeastern Utah, which would most likely render the rump U.S. and Canada uninhabitable. He embarked on a foredoomed rebellion which the Krolp crushed with in three days, dissolving the rump U.S. and embarking on their strip mining anyway.
