The 4 TV shows that predicted Donald Trump

The current Republican nominee and potential President of the United States, Donald Trump, is arguably a politician like no other; his misogyny, his xenophobia, and his incompetency are largely unprecedented in US politics. However, there’s more than a few television shows that seem to have had him sussed a long time ago…

Another one for Yahoo. Tackles a couple of different programs – I won’t name them, in the hopes of preserving the surprise, but you could probably figure it out by looking at the tags.

I think this was a good one to write, actually, because it’s a little more engaged than my usual stuff; while it’s still basically just a Buzzfeed list type thing, it is about more than just TV, which is good, I reckon. Healthy. Stretching myself and all that.

(I very much doubt this one has aged especially well.)

The Shared Universe Between Supergirl, Parks and Rec, Scandal and more!

You may have recognised the man in the picture above as Perd Hapley, one of the funniest of Parks and Recreation’s recurring background characters. Perd was a newscaster with a fairly unique set of inflections and turn of phrase, which lead to a lot of funny moments across the course of the show’s run.

Did you recognise him when he was on Supergirl, though?

Something more of a joke-y, fun article today. It made me laugh, at any rate, but my sense of humour is fairly subjective.
