As elections go, there really will never be another one like this current one in the U.S. for a multitude of reasons.
Well, no, there's only one reason - Donald Trump. As the days and weeks bring forth something weirder or downright sinister, you've just go to wonder how much more strange t can all get.
After all, we've had Skittles and Tic-Tacs publicly distance themselves from Donald Trump, Scott Baio of Charles In Charge fame stump for Trump and Hillary Clinton's pretty much got 99% of the civilised world on her side.
Now she can add fictional characters to her support base as Ron Swanson of Parks & Recreation has - through his real-world counterpart, Nick Offerman - confirmed that Swanson's with her.
I am frequently asked how Ron Swanson would weigh in on this election. I was able to contact a source close to Ron and here is the result: pic.twitter.com/2A0JWEgpgu

"Ron wouldn’t think much of Trump," explained Offerman in a lengthy tweet on the subject that covered a multitude of reasons as to why Swanson's anti-Trump.
"First of all, he’d be very sad that a businessman entered politics. Huge step backwards. He made it in the private sector and he blew it! Doesn’t speak well of his decision making. Second, he wen’t bankrupt 4-6 times, depending on who you believe. Ron does not like businessmen getting bailed out by taxpayers. Third, Trump disrespects women. Ron likes women. Because they are human beings and deserve to be treated with basic dignity. Fourth, his boys are fatuous suck-ups with slick hair."
Interestingly, however, Swanson / Offerman also pointed out that he would be against Clinton also, but would vote for her grudgingly. "Ron would not like Hillary either. She is a career politician."
"Ron has no love of career politicians. But he would certainly vote Hillary over Trump, if he had to choose between the two. Or he would write in Merle Haggard or Willie Nelson."
It should come as no surprise, either way, that Swanson would vote Hillary - considering Leslie Knope / Amy Poehler played her so brilliantly on SNL when she was in the cast. Right, now what does George Michael Bluth make of the election? We need more fictional characters and their political views clarified, to be honest.
