Jason Bateman Compares The Trumps to 'Arrested Development's The Bluths!

Jason Bateman Compares The Trumps to 'Arrested Development's The Bluths!

Jason Bateman hit Stephen Colbert‘s couch on The Late Show on Wednesday night (May 23) and compared the Trump family to his Arrested Development family, the Bluths!

“There are brothers that I think equal ours in number, there’s a crazy dad, a crazy mom, and a lot of moral bankruptcy,” the 49-year-old actor told Stephen.

“There were some story lines that started back in the early 2000s. Like the wall between Mexico and the United States was a dumb, dumb Bluth family idea that is of course now tragically real,” Jason continued.

Stephen then asked, “Which Trump is most like your character, Michael Bluth?.” Jason replied, “Barron. He’s essentially innocent and has that ever-present look of, ‘How am I gonna get out of here?’”

    All these late night shows are all the same…and they no longer even pretend to have humor. It is always…blah, blah, blah, Trump is bad….ENOUGH already. Can’t we have ANYTHING that permits us to get a break from politics? Must EVERYTHING that ANYONE from Hollywood is involved in have to include political anti-Trump commentary? This is why no one is watching awards shows….red carpet shows…talk shows. We are tired of hearing it.
