Who said it: Donald Trump or Mr Burns?

Well it was nice knowing you, America…

As Donald Trump took the latest step in his bid to be US President yesterday, appearing on Republican’s major GOP debate in his usual mud-slinging manner, there emerged the very real and all too vexing possibility that this flapping hairpiece with a grin could be a genuine frontrunner to lead the party forward.

Yes, somehow, despite insulting women (he’s called breastfeeding in public 'disgusting') and stoking racial divisions (he claims Mexicans are "rapists"), Trump has somehow assailed quite the following thanks in part to his no-nonsense style and antiquated values. Which isn’t too dissimilar to a certain Montgomery Burns, himself a raving old racist and frequent visitor to Springfield’s shadowy Republican Party Headquarters. But just how alike are they?

Two tyrannical, cartoonish billionaires, some very interesting quotes – see if you can match the quote to the man...
