The presidential candidates remind us of these Muppets


Alexandrea Griffin of Hypeline has posted a hilarious breakdown of the presidential candidates and their Muppet doppelgangers and kindred spirits. If you’re sick and tired of hearing post-debate analysts or reading some pundit picking apart every single phrase a candidate has said, this is a nice change of pace. Plus, you can never have enough Muppets in your life.

Griffin makes the obvious Bernie Sanders/Statler and Waldorf connection, but there are some pretty brilliant Republican observations, including Rand Paul as Sam the Eagle and Jeb Bush as Scooter. On the Democratic side, you’ll find Martin O’Malley as Beaker and Lincoln Chafee as Kermit.


We won’t spoil Hillary Clinton for you, but Muppet fans can make an obvious guess.

The pictures make it a worthwhile view, so click here to check out Griffin’s article at Hypeline by clicking here.
