As the election looms mere hours in our collective future, ideological debate has reached something of a stalemate — if you don’t know where you stand on the most pressing issues of the day, you truly have been living under a rock.
But while the room for political discourse may have reached a temporary ceasefire until the votes are counted and the future secured, there is still one item of extreme import up for debate: Who, exactly, does CNN’s “Millennial Trump voter” remind you of?
Alex Griswold, a reporter for Mediaite, sparked the conversation with a Tweet this morning:
CNN’s millennial Donald Trump supporter looks prety much exactly how you would have expected pic.twitter.com/3Ib61gVZLB

But while that statement might be true, the photo set off a serious round of comparisons.
The obvious standout, of course, is Draco Malfoy:
“In other words,” wrote one commenter, “Trump has locked down the Draco Malfoy vote.”
“He looks like he’s thinking hard about how to resolve ‘the Mudblood question,'” chimed in another.
Some saw the Malfoy resemblance, but felt the comparison was lacking something, or someone. Or whatever it is you call a Milo:
“I saw him and thought ‘Dammit they cloned Milo,'” wrote one disappointed internet surfer.
But the comparisons didn’t stop there, from the Mighty Ducks villain:
To a little dose of Max Headroom:
And while we don’t quite see it, someone called out A.J. Soprano:
OK, but we can all agree ha looks strikingly similar to Richie Rich:
And, yeah, there’s definitely some Waldo from The Little Rascals:
We never would have guessed this one, but after someone suggested “Magic Earring Ken,” well, yeah, we see it:
But perhaps the most terrifying comparison comes at the prospect of this little Trumpet pretty convincingly resembling the Nazi youth from Cabaret:
In summation: GO VOTE.
You know-nothing gays. That last image is from Cabaret!!!!! Millennials!
Dear Queerty Editors,
Please don’t feed the animals. Don’t give them press. That’s what they want.
I thought of Rolf, the young Nazi from The Sound of Music. All this guy needs is the armband.
Gotta love the lavender tie. But that guy looks more like a typical millennial Romney supporter in 2012. He’s not how I imagine a typical millennial Trump supporter: that would be a tattooed, potbellied, drooling, toothless hillbilly meth head.
I don’t recognize him from porn. Though he looks cute enough for it.
I definitely saw the kid from Cabaret first.
The real thing here is no matter who wins this election it will go down as the two most un professional acting candidates in history ! Never seen it get this low in my life time(im 60 )
What a nasty article!…but, I accept the fact Queerty.com is a biased, opinionated left-leaning blog, and most of the readership has a very caustic acerbic vocal streak…but that’s OK, First Amendment honored. I think the millennial voter looks like Ronan Farrow
I thought Leonardo DiCaprio myself. If he dyed his hair platinum.
Can I just kindly request that Queerty not ever cover Milo Yannipolous? He’s not famous enough yet to be truly influential but he could be if people keep insinuating him into things. I think it’s a very dangerous thing to cover his goings on because it gives him more of an opportunity to get his toxic rhetoric across to susceptible gay people who mistake him for an ally. He’s no ally, just an agent of trolling mentality that seeks to push people around with misinformation.
At this stage the best one can do is look at the good Donald Trump has done:
– the evangelical christians who continue to support him despite every moral outrage have been exposed, once and for all, as the hypocritical, morally bankrupt, sleazoids that we always knew they were;
– the news media has had a nasty wake-up call and are at last beginning to understand how shallow and dangerous the 24-hour news churn has been; hopefully paving the way for more depth and fact-checking in future;
– there are now easy ways to identify flawed thinkers with no real critical faculties: e.g. anyone who ventures the opinion that Trump and Clinton are equally depressing choices. Try and introduce them to the concept of false equivalency.
@Sansacro: It says Cabaret.You can’t read English?
The little twerp is on TMZ live and is proud of his effort.
Bullying a teenager just because he is voting for Trump. The same gay medias who advocate for anti bullying.
@Stilinski26: If he’s able to vote for Trump then he’s an adult, therefore he’s fair game
Zack–Saved by the Bell. That was my first thought.
I have to say that my first thought was that he looks like a poster boy for Hitler but the Drake mudlood analogy works as well.
I thought of John Barrowman as the Lead Tenor in the Producers (Springtime for Hitler).
Hmmm, why are his eyebrows dark….
at first look I was thinking of that Hollywood psychic kid that is always showing up on tv. Sorry, Hollywood medium.
Good on him for not conforming to gay group-think.
Love the Coiffed Do. Makes him look like a Trump Mini-Me.
@grainne_gillespie: so its fair to bully an 18 year old gay man because hes an adult based on your logic
@bobnla: Then what are you doing here?
The US infantilizes its youth and does so through their twenties. 18 year olds are old enough to vote, get married, smoke (ugh), are over the age of consent, and to go to war and kill people.
They’re more than old enough to take care of themselves.
@Stilinski26: Queerty editors have a strong anti-bullying policy unless you’re Catholic, conservative, pro-life, or you think that “trans” has no place in the LGBTQ lineup. Then you can be vindictively shredded by the liberal nutjob readership because you deserve it. That’s how they play it here.
Tom is cute but I don’t think he’s all that smart.
@scotshot: I don’t think 18 yr olds are ready to vote. I find that this age group doesnt yet have the knowledge & life experience to go to the polls.
@FlyBy: thought the same thing
