Logan Paul might be looking for his next step after his foray into pro boxing didn’t go to plan, but he could very well have a helping hand from a comedian who wants to see him in the White House.

Prior to his grudge match with KSI, Logan Paul spoke plenty about his future – mainly in the fighting game, and potentially vaulting into the UFC. Yet, since losing, the talk about his future has been quiet, remaining solely on YouTube and contesting the outcome of his defeat.

However, if he still has lofty goals of becoming the biggest entertainer in the world, he might just have a helping hand from a comedian who wants to see him take up the reigns as President of the United States.

Logan Paul, InstagramLogan Paul has been quieter than normal about his future following the KSI defeat.

During his appearance on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast, comedian Tim Dillion brought up the topic of Paul being the leader in the White House. 

“I will make Logan Paul president. He’s a smart guy,” claimed Dillon, before expanding on his point. “YouTubers are going to have millions of dollars, millions of fans, and no skills when they’re all 40. I will make him the President of the United States.”

The comedian also noted that the YouTuber “wouldn’t be that bad” at taking up the reigns. “He’s disciplined, he’s got a heart – I will be his Steve Bannon, I’m going to get involved in that. Hundred percent,” added Dillon.

Now, of course, celebrities claiming to run for the role of President has very much become a phenomenon ever since Donald Trump was elected back in 2016.

Kanye West claimed he’d be running in 2024, while Dwyane ‘The Rock’ Johnson has been tipped by many as being President one day. Paul, himself, tweeted that he’d “do it,” as a caption to posting the video from Dillon.

Whether or not he’s being wholly serious, however, is a different story. Citizens have to be at least 35 years of age to run for the office of President, and Paul is 11 years away from being at that required point.

The popular YouTuber would have to wait until the 2032 election cycle, if he was being serious, but who knows what state the world would be in at that point.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
