** In the 2016 Presidential Election, a troll registered "Deez Nuts" as an independent candidate and got a reputable firm, Public Policy Polling, to poll it. In North Carolina, between Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, and Deez Nuts, Deez Nuts had a respectable 9% of the vote--but still behind the proven future President Not Sure, at 12%.
** President Camacho is a former professional wrestler. President UsefulNotes/DonaldTrump appeared as a guest star on Wrestlemania in 2007 against Vince [=McMahon=].
** President [[UsefulNotes/DonaldTrump Trump]]'s nomination of Andrew Pudzer, CEO of Carl's Jr., for secretary of labor has ''not'' gone unnoticed.



** The above is also discussed by Albert of ''Website/TheAgonyBooth'': [[http://www.agonybooth.com/movies-that-predicted-trump-idiocracy-2006-50744 he was tired of]] the internet joke that "''Idiocracy'' is now a documentary" and was trying to rebuke that with actual data... until Trump's 2016 victory changed his mind.
-->(Perhaps four years from now, Idiocracy will look less like a documentary, and more like a utopian, escapist fantasy.)

* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop: The film blames poor people for their own lack of birth control and low levels of education; all while conflating class, wealth and intelligence. This is remarkably mean spirited for a film which allegedly wants to aspire to a better world. Idiocracy's take away is that the poor are to blame for the state of society (despite having little to know control over the circumstances of their lives) and that success comes from "common sense" (rather than the chance circumstances of health and education a person is born into).
