If Presidential Candidates Were Futurama Characters

There is a striking resemblance between the 2016 candidates, and characters from the animated series Futurama. It may be they are those characters, after one of the show's typical time travel mishaps.

"Old Freebie", the flag of Earth in Futurama.

Candidates marked with a * are no longer running. Without further ado, here they are:

Democrats

Hillary Clinton: Turanga Leela

Tough, smart, and capable, but has difficulty getting others to warm to her. Still traumatised by Bill's impeachment Cookieville Minimum Security Orphanarium.


Bernie Sanders: Lord Nibbler of Nibblonia

Approximately 3200 years old and has an ambitious plan to save the universe. Often underestimated, but can devour a spaceship hold full of savage monsters in less than a minute. Hillary Leela used to consider him an amusing pet, but now has to take him more seriously.


Republicans

Donald Trump: Zapp Brannigan

A power-mad, pompous buffoon, ready to sacrifice wave after wave of his own men. Known for his triumphant victory over the pacifists of the Gandhi Nebula. Easily distracted by hot alien babes.

Ted Cruz: Nudar

Leader of a crew of scammers, happy to risk destroying the universe if it might get him what he wants. Considered repulsive by everyone except victims of the obedience virus. Has a disturbing tendency to win anyway, after which he does an annoying victory dance.


Marco Rubio: Philip J Fry

Nice enough guy, but out of his depth intellectually (and in most other ways).


Jeb Bush: Amy Wong

A complete and total klutz, without much sense of purpose. Practically unlimited financial resources, as the Bush Wong family own half of Mars.


John Kasich: Kif Kroker

Rational and competent, but has trouble getting anyone to listen. Despairs at the antics of Trump Zapp Brannigan. Sighs a lot.


Ben Carson: Hubert J Farnsworth

Brilliant at his specialist area of expertise. Baffled and confused by the wider world.

* Chris Christie: The Donbot

Known for taking excessive revenge on those who disappoint him. Any resemblance to the New Jersey Mafia is entirely coincidental.

* Carly Fiorina: Mom

A ruthless businesswoman, but unsuccessful in her scheme to take over the world.

Not running: Nixon's head in a jar

Although he would be an improvement on some of the others.


Also not running: FXJKHR

He is the 60th President, and Obama is the 44th, so we have some time.
