There's a certain kind of person people expect to vote for Donald Trump, whether they're real or not.

On July 21, Twitter user @malkatz asked internet users to do a fascinating thought experiment:

which fictional characters seem like they "absolutely voted for Trump."


The answers seemed frighteningly accurate.

According to @Malkatz's rules, the character could come from any country or period in history—this was more about their personalities and political beliefs.

To kick things off, she had some ideas of his own!



The thread went viral, with people everywhere offering up their diehard fictional Trump supporters.



The characters were, for the most part, older white males, with a distinct conservative tilt.



Characters who were obsessed with money and wealth also seemed like a good fit.



Trump has also found a lot of support among people who are over-zealous about the military.

Sometimes, entire fictional families seem like they'd shout MAGA at the drop of a hat.


Even if characters lived hundreds of years before Trump, their opinions on social issues made their vote clear.


Some characters aren't that different from the people who played them...

Though @Malkatz had asked for characters who weren't villains, one Twitter user left us with the true lesson of the viral Twitter prompt:

Have a not villain you think might be leaning red in 2020? This shirt, available here, can express your concern.

We sometimes regret decisions and life choices too, but the missed opportunities always seem to hit the hardest when we look back on them.

Accusations of sexual harassment are serious things, and not tools for manipulating a game, but two Survivor contestants ignored that to make the game go their way.

Elizabeth Beisel and Missy Byrd voiced concerns over touching by another contestant, Dan Spilo, which now appear to have been either greatly exaggerated or completely made up to manipulate other players.

We all need a pick-me-up now and then. The news can be depressing and so many of us are used to hearing nothing but messages of gloom and doom from the moment we step outside.

Parents are everything, well good parents, parents who are destined to be parents. Some people really shouldn't be parents. That's for another time to discuss. When we are all born our parental units have such high hopes and plans.... and more often then not, the spawn will choose the adverse path. When you're children choose the adverse path, it has to be harrowing, but, a true parent finds a way, even with disappointment. But that doesn't mean you can't chat about it.

So flying can be a handful and a half. We can't travel with anything but our knickers anymore, well that is what it feels like. Sometimes we forget what we've packed, especially if we've packed in a hurry. It feels like the simplest of necessities is now a HUGE no-no. So once and awhile we're flagged with a thing or two that could raise a few eyebrows. (For no good reason!)
