Donald Trump is Archie Bunker. Just ask the man who created him.
Norman Lear — who produced many 1970s sitcoms, including “All in the Family,” which stars Carroll O’Connor as Bunker, an angry, outspoken bigot — blasted the presumptive Republican presidential nominee on Thursday during a Writers Guild event with “Big Bang Theory” creator Chuck Lorre.
“He IS Archie Bunker,” Lear told the audience, according to a Deadline report published Friday. “I think of Donald Trump as the middle finger of the American right hand.”
“Why is this happening?” he asked of Trump’s potential election to the White House, questioning how the reality star made it this far. “Whether you’re a Republican or a Democrat, can we all seriously agree this is bad for America?”
