Atlas Shrugged in 2016 — real life characters

The good guys:

Rush Limbaugh is the mastermind John Galt.

Donald Trump is capitalist Henry Rearden.

Carly Fiorina is businessperson Dagny Taggart.

The Most Interesting Man in the World (Dos Equis commercials) is the prodigy Francisco d’Anconia.

Fellow Mt. Juliet resident Charlie Daniels is the pirate Ragnar Danneskjöld.

Newt Gingrich is the loyalist Eddie Willers.

The bad guys:

Mitt Romney is the sellout businessman James Taggert.

Hillary Clinton is Lillian Rearden, but only in a fictional sense. (Trump would have never married her.) Their only two similarities are that Lillian Rearden was cheated on and she conspires with the anti-capitalists.

Al Gore is Dr. Floyd Ferris, who completely perverts science.

Bill Gates is the very intelligent Dr. Robert Stadler, who sells out to the anti-capitalists.

Barack Obama is the statist Wesley Mouch. (Even though there is no Mrs. Mouch in the Ayn Rand novel, this still makes Michelle Obama take on the name Mrs. Mouch.)
