Screenwriter Bob Gale already revealed that future Biff Tannen in Back to the Future II is based on Donald Trump, but a video screened at the Democratic National Convention made even more comparisons between the Republican nominee and famous movie bullies. 

The video titled “Bullies” (found via Slate) began with scenes of Scut Farcus from A Christmas Story, Chet from Weird Science, Buzz McCallister from Home Alone 2: Lost in New York, and Johnny from Karate Kid before getting to Trump. Soundbites from the presidential candidate were featured among similar phrasing from Nurse Ratched from One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Regina George from Mean Girls, and Biff.

“I really do think we need more love and kindness in our country,” Hillary Clinton says in the video. “That’s why it’s important to stand up to bullies wherever they are and why we shouldn’t let anybody bully his way into the presidency.”  

Ted Cruz brought up the link between Trump and Biff earlier this year. “We are looking, potentially, at the Biff Tannen presidency,” he said. “I don’t think the people of America want that. I don’t think we deserve that. I don’t think Hoosiers want that.”
