What fictional characters would have voted for Trump?

This thread is just for fun and the idea taken from a Twitter thread that has been running now for a couple of days. The only rule is no villains. For example, no Mr. Burns, Lex Luthor, Dr. Doom, Skeletor or Darth Vader

I'll start

Amy Poehler's character from Mean Girls
Krusty the Clown
Dr. Julius Hibbert
Rev. Lovejoy
Dale from King of the Hill
Tim Taylor from Home Improvement
Kramer
Costanza
US Agent
Jerry Maguire
Paul Kersey from Death Wish
Walt Kowalski from Gran Torino
Archie Bunker

I disagree about Costanza and Kramer. They'd have voted for Gary Johnson.


Dallas & Brett from Alien.

Ronnie fuckin' Dobbs.

Does anyone not view Biff as a villain?

Re: What fictional characters would have voted for Trump?

As mentioned in the OP, the most obvious answer is Dale Gribble. If they were still making KotH today, he'd have swapped his Mack Truck hat for a MAGA one, he'd tell John Redcorn to go back to his own country, then head down stairs to his basement to post on r/the_donald railing about soy-boy beta cucks while Redcorn's snuck in the bedroom window and is plowing Nancy in their bed. Then there'd be the episode where QAnon conspiracy theories convince him that Sugarfoot's is a front for child sex-trafficking...

I'm pretty sure that George and Kramer wouldn't bother voting.

Oh, and in (my head cannon) King of the Hill universe, Buck Strickland is Trump's Secretary of Energy instead of Rick Perry.

When were the Seaver kids ever political? I'm pretty sure the daughter would be classified as a liberal or progressive.
I don't remember Elvin, but I doubt that Cliff Huxtable would vote for Trump. Maybe because of Bill Cosby's Pound Cake speech and later sexual assault and rape conviction?
Buddy yeah, but why would Charles from Charles in Charge vote for Trump? He seemed like a pretty compassionate character that looked out for the kids he was in charge of. Scott Baio's a different story.

Re: What fictional characters would have voted for Trump?

Michael: Mother, did you vote for Trump?

Lucille: I voted for the one who did the most business with your father.

Michael: Okay, that doesn't clear things up at all.

Lucille: Oh, Michael, what does it matter? Trump wins, the other won wins, what's the difference?

Michael: 'The other one'? Do you even know who ran for president against him?

Lucille: I think her name is Hussy.

GOB: What's everybody talking about?

Michael: Mom voted for Trump.

GOB: That's unlikely, Michael, considering the election is next week.

Michael: Election was yesterday, buddy.

GOB: ...No, it wasn't.

Michael: Yep.

GOB: ...But that can't... I was going to pick up all those Hillary voters.

Michael: Yeah, the stair car would've packed 'em in the polling place. Could've made the difference.

GOB: I've made a huge mistake.

Lucille: We'll see about that...

Keaton was a hard Republican, so even if part of his persona was compassionate, he still would have voted for Trump because of the wealth and traditional values campaign. Probably change his vote in the second term.

Elvin was Cliff son-in-law, who called him Dad all the time. Cliff feels like the character similar to Ben Carson for some reason. Extremely talented doctor who cares more about his wealth and being financially safe. His conservatives ways as opposed to Denise's more free spirited attitude makes me think he would have voted for Trump and since Elvin was a Cliff butt kisses, he would have done so too.

Charles was always scheming to get girls, get money and be a playboy. He would have seen Trump as the guy he wanted to aspire to be. Also, it's hard to see Scott Baio now too since it has been said that he slept with an underage Nicole Eggert. And Buddy is a fucking dufus that would do whatever Charles told him to.

As for the Seavers, I was mostly kidding but it's also hard to see Kirk Cameron today after all the shitty things he did even back then, like firing her love interest on the show because she was on Playboy and that was against his beliefs

I feel Mr. Drummond would have voted for Trump before he adopted Arnold and Willis.
