Gerald R. Ford was the vice president to Richard Nixon and former President of the United States.
In the earlier 1970s, one of Richard Nixon's presidential aides accidentally spilled a glass of water and apologized. Gerald Ford replied, "That's ok, nobody's human". After this blunder, Adrian Veidt, in an interview with Nova Express, jokingly referred to Nixon's close aides as "humanoids".
He had met Eddie Blake during a banquet held in honor of his service for the United States government. A picture of them shaking hands was founded in Blake's apartment by homicide detective Joe Bourquin of the New York City Police Department in October 1985. He and Steven Fine joked whether they should consider Ford a suspect for Blake's murder.
Gerald Ford served as president of the United States between 1989 to 1993 after Nixon died in office.

In reality, Gerald R. Ford (1913-2006) was 38th President of the United States (1974-1977) and, earlier, fortieth Vice President of the United States (1973-1974).
His stumbling in the book was a comic nod to his clumsiness.
