As far as we know, fictional Americans aren’t eligible to vote. But if they could—as liberal as real-life Hollywood might be—they wouldn’t all be #WithHer. Here are 25 of your favorite movie characters, past and present, who we believe would mark their ballots for Donald Trump. (Our selections are based on the highly scientific methodology of “yeah, that feels right.” Nate Silver would approve.)

1. Biff Tannen from Back to the Future Part II

Universal Pictures

If you think dystopian alternate future Biff–a mega-rich, pervy casino owner who's transformed sleepy Hill Valley into a seedy Vegas knockoff—seems familiar, that's not a coincidence. Screenwriter Bob Gale has said the character was based on Donald Trump.

2. Jeffrey Lebowski from The Big Lebowski

Gramercy Pictures

The titular Big Lebowski—not to be confused with the Dude, who would never, ever vote for Trump, man—may be a millionaire, but he's too cheap to buy a guy a new rug.

3. Uncle Rico from Napoleon Dynamite

Fox Searchlight

Outside of creepily pushing breast enhancement products on teenage Deb, all this former high school quarterback wants is to make his football career great again.

4. Gordon Gekko from Wall Street

20th Century Fox

"Greed is good," said the archetype that inspired a generation of business douches in Oliver Stone's drama about the world of high-stakes, frequently unethical finance—which came out the same year as Trump's The Art of the Deal, in 1987. (The real-life inspiration for Gekko, for what it's worth, endorsed Bernie Sanders.)


Fun fact: The Republican presidential nominee himself shot a cameo for the 2010 sequel, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, but his appearance didn't make the final cut.

5. Buzz McCallister from the Home Alone movies

20th Century Fox

It may have been Kevin who crossed paths with Donald in the Plaza in Home Alone 2, but it's his older brother who best embodies the Trump ethos. An immature bully, Buzz offers a seemingly heartfelt apology for humiliating Kevin at the school Christmas pageant before whispering, "Beat that, you little trout sniffer"—an insult so creative that Trump probably wishes he came up with it.

6. Mr. Potter from It's a Wonderful Life


The richest man in Bedford Falls would find himself drawn to the candidacy of a fellow real estate magnate. His exploitative housing development, Potter's Field, took ruthless advantage of the city's poorest citizens. As Donald Trump justified rooting for the housing crisis, "That's called business."

7. Ivan Drago from Rocky IV

Even if the terrifying Soviet boxer isn't eligible to vote in the U.S., he'd happily join Trump and Putin for a weekend of topless horseback riding in the country.

8. Charles Foster Kane from Citizen Kane


Orson Welles' story of a bitter, power-hungry millionaire and failed politician who dies alone in his Florida estate with a fancy name is, no joke, Trump's favorite movie.

9. Shooter McGavin from Happy Gilmore

Universal Pictures

Like Trump, Shooter loves golf. Also like Trump, he's a very sore loser.

10. Nathan Bateman from Ex Machina

Universal Pictures

The tech millionaire is so committed to not treating women like people that he designed AI robots to have sex with instead.

11. Harry Ellis from Die Hard

20th Century Fox

The coked-out yuppie executive would like to remind you that he "[negotiates] million-dollar deals for breakfast." Well, his negotiations with Hans Gruber and his gang of terrorists are like watching nightmare foreign policy in action. "Hey, business is business," Ellis says. "You use a gun, I use a fountain pen. What's the difference?"

12. Johnny from The Room

TPW Films

Considering the extent to which the evil, two-timing Lisa was "tearing him apart," it's hard to conceive of Johnny ever voting for a woman. Also, a hypothetical Trump presidency is what I would imagine a Tommy Wiseau-directed season of The West Wing would be like.

13. Gaston from Beauty and the Beast

Walt Disney Pictures

Belle's rude, self-centered, and wildly sexist suitor seems like exactly the kind of guy who would have an aneurysm if you told him his hands looked small.

14. All of the non-Charlie kids from Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory

Paramount Pictures

Veruca Salt, Violet Beauregarde, Mike Teevee, and Augustus Gloop are spoiled, greedy, and entitled little monsters. I have no doubt that Donald would have bought every case of Wonka Bars in the continental United States in pursuit of a Golden Ticket for Ivanka.

15. Johnny Lawrence from The Karate Kid

Columbia Pictures

Actually, everyone from the Cobra Kai dojo is voting for Trump.

16. Tyler Durden from Fight Club

20th Century Fox

The hyperviolent anarchist would see electing Trump as the endgame for Project Mayhem. The Narrator, meanwhile, would vote for Hillary.

17. William “Bill the Butcher” Cutting from Gangs of New York


This gang leader harbors a vicious hatred of immigrants, or as he calls them, "trespassers." As Trump once said, "Well, I think that when you get right down to it, we're a nation that speaks English. I think that, while we're in this nation, we should be speaking English." As Bill the Butcher once said, "You see this knife? I’m gonna teach you to speak English with this fucking knife!"

18. The Dursleys from the Harry Potter movies

Warner Bros.

Petunia, Vernon, and Dudley—Harry Potter's aunt, uncle, and bully of a cousin, respectively—have no patience for magic, or for anyone who's different from them, really. That's why they mistreat the orphaned Harry, whose Muggle-born mother was Petunia's sister, and force him to live in the cupboard under the stairs. Vernon is also a devoted reader of the Daily Mail, so.

19. Bob Ewell from To Kill a Mockingbird

Universal Pictures

Fortunately for this alcoholic, down-on-his-luck poacher, whose full name is Robert E. Lee Ewell (yup), there's racism and sexism to make himself feel better—that's why he accuses an innocent black man of raping his daughter, who he himself beats. It is disturbingly easy to picture Bob Ewell in a "Trump That Bitch" T-shirt.

20. Warner Huntington III from Legally Blonde


Elle Woods' aspiring politician ex-boyfriend greatly underestimates the capacity of a nasty woman to a) get into Harvard Law School and b) get shit done.

21. Cal Hockley from Titanic

Paramount Pictures

I'll leave it up to you to imagine what lengths Donald Trump would go to in order to secure himself a seat on a lifeboat.

22. Loki from the Marvel Cinematic Universe


The trickster god with a frost giant-sized chip on his shoulder would admire Trump's ability to shape-shift as if by magic from one political stance to another. Plus, a recent Marvel comic series envisioned just how Donald-esque a Loki presidential campaign might look.

23. Andrew Clark from The Breakfast Club

Universal Pictures

This star wrestler with bullying tendencies and serious daddy issues ("I won't tolerate any losers in this family," his father would threaten him) would likely respond to Trump's flair for fascism.

24. Patrick Bateman from American Psycho

Lions Gate

There are few examples of on-screen misogyny more iconic than this status-obsessed investment banker and serial killer. Author Bret Easton Ellis told the New York Post that Bateman, his most infamous creation, would vote for Trump. "I think Trump would be a father figure for him," Ellis said. "He would see a kindred spirit in the Donald Trump of today: Somebody who calls out bullshit when he sees it."

25. Stanley Kowalski from A Streetcar Named Desire

Warner Bros.

In addition to abusing his wife, Stanley Kowalski rapes his sister-in-law and then has her committed to a mental institution. Seems like he and Trump might have similar views on consent.
