Averaging three stars a tweet since the death of Favrd!

Has anyone ever seen Donald Trump and Kent Brockman in the same room together?

Without wanting to make any accusations, I present the following:

  • "This election is a total sham and a travesty. We are not a democracy!" - Donald Trump, November 2012
  • "I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: democracy simply doesn’t work." - Kent Brockman, 1995
  • "Look at what’s happening to Nightly News" - Donald Trump, November 2012
  • "Reporters used to expose corruption and corporate greed. Now, like toothless babies, they suckle at the teat of misinformation and poop it into the diaper called the six-o’clock news." - Kent Brockman, 2007
  • "Our country is now in serious and unprecedented trouble…like never before." - Donald Trump, November 2012
  • "Ladies and gentlemen, I’ve been to Vietnam, Afghanistan, and Iraq, and I can say without hyperbole that this is a million times worse than all of them put together." - Kent Brockman, 1992
  • "It’s my honor, real honor, to endorse Mitt Romney." - Donald Trump, February 2012
  • "I, for one, welcome our new insect overlords." - Kent Brockman, 1994
