What If The 2016 Presidential Candidates Were 'Back To The Future' Characters?

Great Scott!

It's uncanny how many things Back to the Future has accurately predicted for 2015. We have hover boards and communication screens and what's this about the Cubs? And the parallels extend even farther into the political sphere of campaign season. "The Daily Show" correspondent Hasan Minhaj compared Bernie Sanders to Back to the Future's infamous mad scientist Doc Brown in an interview with the Huffington Post, which begs the question: What about the other candidates?

Of course, no one could ever be golden boy Marty McFly himself, but we've found some pretty convincing comparisons. Buckle up, 'cause where we're going, we don't need roads.

    You never really know what's going to happen next with these two. But they're totally brilliant and you're along for the ride.

  • Hillary Clinton is Lorraine Baines-McFly

    She's got it together and is commanding all of the attention, even from buttheads like Biff.

  • Ben Carson is Douglas J. Needles

    Wait, Flea was in Back to the Future? And Ben Carson's really running for president?

  • Jeb Bush is Einstein

    A perfect companion, Jeb and Einstein are both in it for the sake of experiment. Three Bushes in office makes about as much sense as a time-traveling dog.

  • Donald Trump is Biff

    This one needs no explanation...

  • Ted Cruz is George McFly

    Hello! McFly! Do these two not look identical? Just don't let Biff knock you out, Ted.

  • John Kasich is Principal Strickland

    You just can't help but feel like you're going to get detention from these two. Slacker.
