Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump has basically steamrolled his way to the top of the heap and doesn't show signs of slowing down. His campaign rhetoric has varied from the vague, "make America great again," to the frightening, "I would bomb the shit out of 'em," to the downright impossible, "It's going to be a real wall. It's going to be a high wall."
But to fans of the NBC comedy 30 Rock, Trump's campaign promises sound a little, well, familiar.
That's right, Trump's "build a wall" promise is eerily similar to a fake GOP endorsement from Tracy Jordan, played by comedian Tracy Morgan, in the show's second season, which aired from 2007-2008.
For anyone who needs a refresher: Jack Donaghy (Alec Baldwin) was worried that the Republican party had no cool celebs, so he got Tracy to record an endorsement promising that the GOP would fulfill "Dr. King's dream" to build a "200 foot high wall to keep Mexico out." Wow.
More proof that Trump was watching 30 Rock for campaign inspiration? In another episode from the show's second season, when Jack Donaghy decides to leave NBC for a career in politics, he says to a room full of fictional Republicans, "We have a chance to make this country great again."
Is that spooky or what?
