How I Imagine the Discussion of Placing a Woman on U.S. Currency Went
  • Obama: So have we figured out which woman we're going to put on U.S. currency?
  • Treasurer: Yes! I believe that Harriet Tubman is our best option.
  • Obama: Great! We'll put her on the 10 dollar bill. She'll replace Alex-
  • Treasurer: No. Mr. President, we can not do that. *Whispers* Alexander Hamilton has received a recent cult following. I strongly advise against that.
  • Victoria: Okay, codenames everyone. From now on you address me as Eagle 1
  • Victoria: Lord M. Been there done that
  • Lord M: ...
  • Victoria: Albert. Currently doing that
  • Albert: ...
  • Victoria: Alexander. It happened in a dream
  • Alexander: ...
  • Victoria: Harriet. If I had to pick a dude.
  • Harriet: ...
  • Victoria: And Lehzen...
  • Lehzen: *sweats nervously*
  • Victoria: ...Eagle 2
  • Lehzen: Oh thank god

BREAKING: Harriet Tubman is replacing Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill

Sources at the U.S. Treasury Department confirmed to Politico on Wednesday that Alexander Hamilton will remain on the $10 bill, while abolitionist Harriet Tubman will replace former President Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill. But wait it gets better, changes featuring people of color are coming to the $5 too.

Alexander Hamilton, as the musical opening for previews on Broadway this week reminds us, has much to recommend him: he was the immigrant son of a single mother who became a founding father and the architect of our financial system. Why take him off the ten, and leave Andrew Jackson, who brutalized Native American communities, defended slavery, and opposed a national paper currency, on the twenty? A group called Women on 20s had already been organizing a drive to get Jackson off and a woman on. Harriet Tubman won the group’s online poll of who that woman should be, and she seems to be the leading choice all-around.
