'Futurama' actor reads Donald Trump quotes as Zapp Brannigan
Make America great again?
No, make America Brannigan.
Donald Trump’s campaign speeches and interviews can often include very broad hyperbole (recent examples: Trump saying President Barack Obama founded ISIS and insinuating that “Second Amendment people” should stop Hillary Clinton). So much so, in fact, that many on the Internet connected Trump’s phrases to cartoon character Zapp Brannigan from Futurama.
Now, voice actor Billy West made that connection literal this week by posting a string of short videos featuring him reading actual Trump quotes in the voice of his vain, preening Futurama character. So far, they include quotes from a 2006 interview with The New York Post (“my fingers are long and beautiful”), a 2012 tweet (“the concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese”), and a 2014 interview with Brazilian news magazine Veja (“it is not a wig, it’s my hair. Do you want to touch it?”), among others. West promises that more are coming.
