Given America successfully had the current POTUS elected and sworn in, is there any reason that despite public outrage, someone like Harvey Weinstein couldn't become President?

  • A 'citation' demonstrating that Weinstein at some point in his career has suggested he might run for the presidency would 'tighten' your question; If you can't tell I'm joking... – Mozibur Ullah Oct 15 '17 at 22:29

    I've voted to close this as off topic because you're asking us to speculate on the future, with an implied attack on the president. – Drunk Cynic Oct 15 '17 at 23:12

    @BigDataLouie I would recommend editing your question to remove the real-world elements and focus on your actual question then. As it stands your question needlessly uses examples of real people, which tends to distract from the actual question. – IllusiveBrian Oct 15 '17 at 23:52

As long as one adheres to the requirements per the constitution, they can run and become president:

No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.
