According to a report by The Huffington Post, Michael Cudlitz, the actor who plays Abraham Ford on The Walking Dead, was asked by their reporter how Donald Trump and the Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton would get on in a zombie apocalypse. Cudlitz was quick to respond. He said, "we are probably looking at that situation right now."  He thinks that Trump would be more like the evil new villain, Negan, while Clinton on the other hand would be more like Rick. Speaking of Rick, he said that he tends to go with the political when he can, but isn’t afraid to kill everyone if necessary.

Rather a scary thought.

He then clearly compared Negan and Trump by saying they are both a “little bit of a loose cannon.” Cudlitz added that this wasn’t him being political, but that this is by Trump’s own description. He concluded by saying that yes, we have our own Negan and our own Rick in the presidential race, and neither of them is perfect.

Donald Trump and villains from fiction and film

Of course, this wasn’t the first time Trump has been compared to a villain from the movies or TV. As reported on Blasting News, Robert de Niro recently gave a comparison between The Donald and his character in the 1976 film Taxi Driver, Travis Bickle.

He said that like Bickle, Trump is "totally nuts," asking God to help us should he win the U.S. presidency. According to Entertainment Weekly, the Republican presidential hopeful has also been compared to the evil Voldemort from the Harry Potter books and films. Their report also made reference to a comparison between Trump and the character Biff from Back to the Future, and in fact, the film’s screenwriter, Bob Gale, reportedly said in the past that Biff’s character was, in fact, based on Donald Trump himself.

Further associations line The Donald up with the character Effie Trinket from The Hunger Games and a contestant on The Bachelor. Not the most flattering comparisons at all.

Getting back to Negan and that terrible bat

Meanwhile, fans continue to wonder who was battered to death by Negan’s barb-wire wrapped baseball bat in the cliffhanger episode of season 6 and will hopefully be more in the picture when The Walking Dead returns to TV on Sunday, October 23, 2016 for its seventh season on AMC.
