Donald Trump + Zapp Brannigan = Sad realization that Brannigan would make a better president

For today’s MEMEDAY celebration, some memes from our side!

Some unknown (by me) person came up with the brilliant — if in hindsight totally obvious — idea of pasting actual quotes from the famously narcissistic Donald Trump over pictures of the equally narcissistic Zapp Brannigan, a spaceship captain from the show Futurama who is basically, as a show producer once explained, “half Captain Kirk, half actual William Shatner.”

The memes are hilarious in and of themselves  — you can find more here and here.

What makes them even more hilarious is that Billy West, the voice actor who played Brannigan, has started doing dramatic readings of them and posting the results on Twitter. 

Too perfect! Just so long as you can set aside for a moment the fact that we could, for real, end up with the 21st century equivalent of Zapp Brannigan as our actual president.

Those are great! They really do seem like thinks Zapp Brannigan would say. I also like the Lucille Bluth quotes attributed to Trump meme:

My forte Zapp Brannigan mashup is still pairing Zapp quotes with pictures of Gul Dukat (with Damar as Kif, and Kira as Leela).

Honestly for a couple of these I was like “surely these are just clips of Zap Brannigan quotes, they’re too ridiculous to be Donald Trum- oh there are citations on the bottom of the video. Good heavens.”

Dang, I could have sworn that was Phil Hartman’s voice, but obviously he’s been gone a long time. He was awesome, though.

My understanding was that the character was written with Phil Hartman in mind, so it seems that Billy West is doing an homage to Hartman with his voicing of Zapp Brannigan.

I so miss Phil Hartman. I always loved whenever Christopher Walken would host SNL as they’d do a ‘The Continental’ skit, and they’d use Phil Hartman’s intro; it was nice to hear his voice.

Futrelle: That top meme with Trump’s quote about his daughter is a misquote, and it’s bad form to present it without correction. What he said, which isn’t any less gross, was, “If Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I would be dating her.” Still seriously icky, but accuracy is important.

OMG! Thank you so much for posting this! If Trump wins, I’m going to spend my spare time retweeting these at him. Heck, I might just do it now, for funsies.

I’m glad these exist to add some levity to an otherwise dire, possibly even apocalyptic situation 🙂

Peter Serafinowicz has also done a heap of voice overs of Trump speeches in a range of silly voices (the Liberace one is hilarious). I can’t link at the moment, but they are all on YouTube…

Nice images!

By the way, I feel sad. Nowadays, whenever a woman mentions domestic violence, everyone is all “we need proof, bring us proof now!” Amber Heard videotapped Johnny Depp and everyone is all: “You shouldn’t have done that, that’s not nice and I’m sure it’s a fake.”

I really feel sad today. 🙁

I love these!

It would be great to have Zap Brannigan quotes on Trump videos as well, it’d probably work just as great. 🙂

I’m sure it won’t embed properly, but it’s the Bad Lip Reading of Ted Cruz’s RNC speech about Trump.
