Mix-n-match movie night

Over dinner, the boys and I got talking about Tintin, the series of comic books about the plucky Belgian "boy reporter" of indeterminate age who does a bang-up job fighting ne'er-do-wells.
A mental misfire led me to refer to "when Clinton goes into the ..." instead of "when Tintin goes into the ...".

We immediately started trying to recast the Tintin books using figures from contemporary politics.

Taking Hillary Clinton as Tintin because of my original slip-up, we all three saw right away that Trump would be Rastapopoulos.

Captain Hadock for some reason was Bernie Sanders.
Snowy was a real stumper.

Your thoughts?
