Is a Beanie Cap Constitutionally Eligible to Be President? YES!

The only eligibility requirements for President of the United States are in Article II, Section 1, of the United States Constitution:
From Article. II. Section. 1. of the US Constitution
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.
No where in the above eligibility requirements does it say that the president has to be a person.

Reread it. It doesn't say that anywhere.

All it says, is that if you are a person, you have to be born in the United States to be eligible for the office, a minimum of thirty-five years old, and have lived in the United States for the last fourteen years.

That's all it says.

Any person who wasn't born in the US, isn't at least thirty-five years old, or hasn't been living here for the last fourteen years can't be president.

All that means is there are extra requirements for people who want to be president, not that only people can be president.

These extra requirements don't apply to non-persons who are duly elected by a majority of electors. You could be a paper clip made yesterday in Canada and there's no restrictions on your eligibility if you are chosen for the office by the electorate.

Now you may say that's just to be assumed that you have to be a person, but we can't go around making assumptions about the Supreme Law of the Land. We have to interpret it as it is written. This is the law, not your opinion.

You can go with the Originalism of some Supreme Court Justices and say that we have to do our best to understand the original intent of the Framers who wrote the Constitution, but if we do that, Hillary Clinton wouldn't be eligible.

The Founding Fathers assumed that only male people would be eligible. It's evident in their grammar:
Article. II.Section. 1.
The executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America. He shall hold his Office during the Term of four Years, and, together with the Vice President, chosen for the same Term, be elected, as follows...
You sexist.

You want to be a sexist? I didn't think so.

Nobody's questioning Hillary Clinton's eligibility on this basis, so don't start using Originalism to block a legitimate candidate that the people want to be the next president of the United States.

If the Beanie gets a massive majority of voters to stand behind taking a break for eight years, it will be undeniably received as a mandate from the people and the Beanie will sit quietly in the Oval Office and allow us some breathing room to improve our lives.

The Beanie absolutely is Constitutionally eligible to be President of the United States, and here's how you can vote for him this November election.
