Donald Trump, Meet Archie Bunker

“Look, Archie Bunker ain’t no bigot! I’m the first to say it ain’t your fault you’re coloured.”

“This here’s a copy of the Apollo 14 insignia. That’s what separates the U.S. of A. from the Red Chinks and all them other losers.”

-- Archie Bunker
All in the Family (CBS, 1971 - 1979)

Archie was a real bigot but at least he didn't have the power to lay waste to a great country with the power and ability to be a positive force in world politics.
Crooked Don is mocked and laughed at everywhere but the damage to the environment and government that he is responsible for, is no laughing matter!

Archie was often described as "the lovable bigot". As actor Carroll O'Connor said in an interview, back when he was playing Archie: "I don't think Archie's a mean man." The main difference here being that Donald is a mean man; a viciously mean man.
