Added DiffLines:

To a certain degree, this also keeps the work from getting unintentionally political; putting controversial real-life politicians in your story is risky business, doubly so if the in-story president is specifically depicted in a positive or negative light.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheHalfBloodPrince'' only refers to the Prime Minister as "the Prime Minister", and gives no descriptors besides that he is male.

Added DiffLines:

** Averted in "The Sound of Drums", which has the Master kill off a fake president who likely was designed to be a parody of then-president George W. Bush.
** "The End of Time" ''does'' have Obama in it, but he is only seen from behind or [[ItMakesSenseInContext his head is vibrating so fast you can't see his features]]. After that, he's a clone of the Master and played by John Simm as is everyone else.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'', in accordance to its EqualOpportunityOffender and RippedFromTheHeadlines philosophy of satire, has also averted this trope, having addressed UsefulNotes/BillClinton, UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush, ''and'' UsefulNotes/BarackObama both by name and on screen during its run. One prominent exception to this is UsefulNotes/DonaldTrump, who is substituted with Mr. Garrison.

* ''Dr. Goldfoot and the Girl Bombs'' (1966). The President is only an LBJ-sounding voice on the hotline to Colonel Benson, always preempted by the strains of "Hail to the Chief".

* Every diplomatic mission of the United States has a portrait of the President, Vice President, and Secretary of State; very often this is at the security checkpoint. So if you go into the gatehouse of the American Embassy pretty much anywhere, you will, as you empty your pockets and submit to scanning, be treated to the smiling faces of UsefulNotes/BarackObama and UsefulNotes/JoeBiden.
