The Trumps are exactly like the Bluths from ‘Arrested Development’

This comparison between the Trumps and the Bluths from 'Arrested Development' is astoundingly good.

One of the more reliable joke constructions on the internet that’s been used to fight President Trump is the “NARRATOR VOICE.”

It stems from Ron Howard’s use of it on Arrested Development, wherein a character on the show would make a bold, ridiculous claim with absolute certitude. Howard would then chime in to inform you in the third-person omniscient they were lying or bluffing.

So now, when Trump says something blustery, Twitter users are reminding you not to worry, that it isn’t true.

But that is actually one of the smaller parallels our current president has with the screwball comedy. A writer at Politico noticed that Trump and the Trump family were the exact same as the Bluths.

These comparisons are absolutely uncanny.

That… is damn near perfect.
