Donald Trump quotes make as much sense in the voice of Futurama's Zapp Brannigan

The internet made a very interesting observation of late.

Take a few choice quotes from Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, whack those words over a picture of Futurama's Zapp Brannigan - the arrogant, sexist, witless, captain of the spaceship Nimbus - and it becomes near-impossible to tell the difference between who said what.

After a short period which saw the memes slowly multiplying and infiltrating the internet's masses, actor Billy West - who voiced Zapp on the show - seems to have caught wind of what was going on.

And, keeping in line with Futurama's ever-intrepid spirit, West decided to make a few recordings of his own; selecting a few representative Trump quotes to rerecord in Zapp's voice.

Soon enough, the hashtag #MakeAmericaBrannigan exploded into life; Twitter users left tussling with the decision over whether they'd rather have a Trump presidency, or put in the charge the guy who once said, "When I'm in command, son, every mission's a suicide mission".

Only one question left - who's the Kif in Donald Trump's life?
