Al Bundy and Leslie Knope: Twitter Picks the #BetterFictionalCandidates Over Clinton, Trump
Let’s take a quick look at the newest unfavorables to emerge regarding both major party nominees, shall we?

Ladies and gentlemen, your 2016 nominees.
It’s no secret that we’re dealing with two vastly unpopular candidates in reality, so sometimes turning to fiction can cure the ills of our real world politics. Enter the newest hashtag to sweep social media this morning: #BetterFictionalCandidates, Twitter’s attempt to present anyone — and I mean anyone — better suited to lead than Clinton or Trump.
