"CJ, these hallways are for walking and talking, not screaming and punching."
Even freaking Batman Returns features the Penguin, a political figure, having his public image destroyed after Batman leaks a recording of him mocking the people of Gotham.

Everything that's damaged or destroyed these fictional careers has already popped up during the current administration, only to bounce off of Trump like an anemic Nerf dart. Trump's father was arrested at a 1927 riot instigated by the KKK -- who incidentally, are still big fans of the Trump name.
The Confederacy endorsed Jill Stein, though.
Both Trump and his press secretary, Sean "I Eat 2.5 Packs Of Gum Every Day Before Noon For Some Mysterious Reason" Spicer, are notorious for handling their press conferences with all the grace of a drunken frat bro on his first spring break. Can you imagine if they punched a wall every time he said something that could be considered a gaffe? It would be a miracle if the White House was still standing.
Not even Aaron Sorkin's crack-fueled brain could come up with this stuff.
And then there was that infamous recording of Trump bragging about committing sexual assault.
