This one is old, but I see alot of reconning about characters were supposedly 'based' on trump (The idea that Biff Tannen from Back to the Future is based on Trump is 100% myth). Glover's character in Gremlins 2 is based more on Ted Turner (Trump was not a media mogul who own television stations), not Trump. The only detail that is lifted from Trump is the idea of Tower. I saw Gremlins 2 when it came out, Ted Turner and whatever bullshit he was saying was in the news all the time. Trump was known fairly nationally, but he was mostly a regional story. You can tell the people who wrote this shit must have been born well after 1990, because it was clear as fucking day in the theaters that this was Ted Turner parody.
Yeah I think they only use two things parodying Trump with Clamp. Everything else was clearly ment to be Ted Turner.

Now back to the future the creator stated that they based Biff off Trump. But I'm pretty sure this was stated after 2016 meaning that is most likely bullshit.

Yeah, Gale is clearly lying for good boy points, even Snopes and Wikipedia say this:

As the October 2015 date featured in the films approached, media outlets began noting the similarities between the older version of the character and Donald Trump, who at the time Part II was produced had just purchased the Plaza Hotel in New York City and, by 2015, was in the midst of an ultimately successful run for President of the United States.[4] When the comparison was brought to Gale's attention in an interview, he said, "Yeah. That's what we were thinking about."[5] Both The Daily Beast and Rolling Stone note the similarities of Biff's casino penthouse to Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino;[5][6] additionally, The Beast points out that in Back to the Future Part II,

Biff uses the profits from his 27-story casino... to help shake up the Republican Party, before eventually assuming political power himself, helping transform Hill Valley, California, into a lawless, dystopian wasteland, where hooliganism reigns, dissent is quashed, and wherein Biff encourages every citizen to call him "America's greatest living folk hero."[5]
The fact checking website Snopes, however, doubts this claim, noting that neither Gale nor Zemeckis mentioned anything about Trump being the inspiration for the character until after comparisons began appearing in social media, and saying that it "...appeared to be retrofitted to 2015’s current events, not prescience on the part of the filmmakers in 1985"

You've been hanging in the YMMV section, it's even better to read their mileage yourself:

I still can't believe these are the same people who claim to be sex-positive (to the point of being coomers), who rabidly support pornography & sex work and are generally supportive of women in the real world (& men in both fiction & IRL) flaunting their sexuality & dressing in skimpy outfits, but fictional women flaunting their sexuality & dressing in skimpy outfits? Oh no, it all "sexism" & "objectification" then. And they have the nerve to mock the likes of The Quartering, No Bullshit, Geeks+Gamers, OAG & BlackDGamer1 for acting like coomers & complaining about the lack of sexy women in fiction nowadays (something which they, the leftoids, caused with their constant objectification sperging. Also, not defending most of aformentioned anti-sjws btw. I realise they can be just as cringey as the SJWs they criticise. Though when wokies dunk on the likes of these people, it's usually either for the wrong reasons or for them saying/doing stuff that SJWs/leftists have done worse. IMHO, BlackDGamer1 was the most reasonable out of the bunch, this coming from someone who followed him on Twiiter for a while. Though this didn't stop the Slicon Valley Overlords from eventually suspending his account).
Though from what I've heard, the leftoids have toned down this attitude recently (some even denying they or any leftist ever had it) to the point where we're starting to see a gradual return of sexy fictional women with Resident Evil' Village's Lady Dimitrescu and at least one online leftist praising the shit out of her.
It is funny how these people never applied the "male gaze is objectifying & bad" to furries & their art, a good chunk of which is animal women with curvaceous figures and big boobs/asses (In fact, I believe Anita actually received a backlash from her own side for targeting Krystal from Star Fox). And of course as we all know, they never apply the "objectification bad" mentality to men (female warriors wearing chainmail bikini is considered "objectifing" & "impractial" but not male warriors wearing literally nothing to cover their well muscled chests).

What I'm really curious about is how these "muh objectification" Sarkeesi-stan types missed the Shantae series? Even the heinous harridan herself never talked about or mentioned Shantae even though it's everything she & her cronies hate. Every girl in those games, including the titular heroine and even some of the game's enemies, is scantly-clad, has an hourglass figure (no body positivity here) and even jiggling boobs (and even worse, the series was made by a man😮). Really, it should've been a prime target for these "muh objectification" types, but it somehow (fortunately) flew under their radar.
I think I've seen Tumblr types redraw her as a Muslim in a hijab. I don't know anything about Shantae but she's a djinn, right? In their mind Djinn = Arabian, Arabs = Muslims.
Yeah, but as far as I know, they haven't stormed the series's creators social media accounts with accusations of sexism, objectification & fatphobia & demands to coverup/fatten up Shantae & her fellow girls (at least not successfully). Nor have their been any articles from Kotaku, Polygon, IGN, Cracked or any other hack journo outlet bemoaning Shantae for being "sexist and/or fatphobic". And like I said before, Anita never talked about or mentioned Shantae despite it being a game series with a central female protagonist (and yet being everything she and her ilk hate).
Late update but apparently, the Shantae series hasn’t completely gone under the radar of the anti-fanservice goblins if this meme posted on on the Shantae subreddit is any indication. Fortunately though, it doesn’t seem that neither the fanbase or the game developers are gonna take their shit. Based. As. Fuck.

Speaking of anti-fanservice goblins, wanna hear a troper tell a joke;

Well duh, like 99% of people who identify as asexual or any of its spinoffs like "aromatic" or "greysexual" are virgins. It's nothing but a cope sexuality.
Asexual is just why for virgins to hide that they have given up on sex and know they will die alone. So just claiming Asexual makes them feel special

For some it's about feeling special, but for many it's just a defense mechanism. They'll be mocked and considered creepy/undesirable for being a virgin, while if they're asexual people on the left can't mock them for it because it's a sexuality. It even takes a lot of ammo from people not on the left, cause the idea that someone just doesn't want sex doesn't provide much mockery material compared to the idea that nobody in the world finds them sexually desirable. It's also far easier to fake and far harder to expose than a fake relationship.

MovieBob really made a mistake trying to make people think he was some kind of player instead of pulling the asexual card.
