We could be looking at a very strange crossover this Fall…
The Walking Dead and the 2016 Presidential Election may not seem like they have a lot in common on the surface, but if you dig a little deeper, the crazy dramas certainly start to blur together.
Not only is there a hero doing their best to survive in a world that used to be run by man, but there's also a villain willing to kill whoever it takes to get to the top.

But don't just take our word for it… Abraham himself, Michael Cudlitz, is the one making comparisons between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton and Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and Rick (Andrew Lincoln)!
To promote TWD's Season 6 Blu-Ray release on Monday, Michael sat down with The Huffington Post where he was asked how he thinks the Presidential nominees would fare in the zombie apocalypse, answering:
"I think we're probably looking at that right now. I think Trump would be more like Negan, and Clinton would be more like Rick — kind of go with the political when you can, but not afraid to kill everybody if they had to. But Negan's a little bit of a loose cannon, and Trump is a little bit of a loose cannon… and that's not me being political. That's by his own description. So yeah, I think we actually have our Negan and our Rick. And neither one is perfect."
So… does that make Bernie Sanders the Carol? LOLz!
Regardless of your political persuasions, you have to admit, Michael sure hit the nail on the head with his casting!
Would U watch a Clinton or Trump-inspired The Walking Dead spin-off??
