The Writers of Idiocracy Are Planning Anti-Trump Ads Starring Terry Crews

The Writers of Idiocracy Are Planning Anti-Trump Ads Starring Terry Crews When the truth is as strange as the fiction By David Gianatasio

Ted Cruz failed to take down Donald Trump in the Republican primaries, but maybe Terry Cruz Crews can get the job done.
With elements of the current election cycle often compared to the zany, low-I.Q. future America depicted in the 2006 satire Idiocracy, it's perhaps no surprise that Crews may soon reprise his character from that film—pumped-up, machine gun-toting, R&B belting President Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho.
In Idiocracy, Camacho, a former professional wrestler and porn star, presides over a failing, fervently anti-intellectual U.S.A., where commercialism and the cult of personality reign supreme, and society teeters one flush away from the sewer.
Now, the film's writers, Etan Cohen and Mike Judge, are prepping a series of anti-Trump spots starring Crews as Camacho. The clips will break once Fox clears the rights for the character's appearance, according to an interview with Cohen in BuzzFeed.

I look forward to seeing those.

3. I can't imagine that Fox will release the character. I liked "Millionaire"

when Crews was the host. Sorry to see him go. It is slow and boring without him.
