The MSNBC anchor also reveals which animal Donald Trump most resembles. 

Down in the dumps over the presidential election? Don't worry--Rachel Maddow has come along to lift our spirits by poking fun at presidents past and future.

The out MSNBC anchor sat down with Entertainment Weekly for an innocent game of "Who Would You Rather?" starring great--and not-so-great--presidents from American history.

Turns out, Maddow is no fan of "the Andrews" (presidents Andrew Johnson and Andrew Jackson), and her ideal dinner date would include Lyndon B. Johnson, Barack Obama, and Theodore Roosevelt.

When asked who would she rather between George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush, she responds, "Oh that's too easy!" Which is a clear choice for Bush senior.

She also imagines what Donald Trump would be if he were an animal.

"When I imagine him as president, I think I imagine him as a cold-blooded a snake in the cold," she says. "He just kind of holds still and looks dead. Get the heat lamp!"

When asked what's more dangerous--binge drinking or not voting--she has some choice health advice.

"This year? Not voting."

Watch the second presidential debate between Trump and Hillary Clinton Sunday at 9 p.m. Eastern.
