Walter Trump looks remarkably similar to Fred Trump, the president’s father.
That dude looks like Fred Trump too.

Fred Trump was a well-known real estate developer in the 1950s, so the namesake probably not a coincidence.
This actually makes me feel better, there’s a chance the writers knew Fred Trump. Because the alternatives makes me question reality.

Fred Trump the slumlord, reviled by many in NYC back then. Woody Guthrie wrote him into a song back in 1950. https://t.co/88YXSa73vL

You may be wondering if this is all a hoax.
Thanks to Snopes, we now know this is all too real.
“A representative for MeTV, a Chicago network that airs reruns of Trackdown, confirmed that the episode was real,” Snopes reported on Wednesday. “The rep said that the after Hoby tells Walter Trump that he is under arrest, the character gets shot by another character and may have been killed.”
