“Batman’s an outsider looking in; the corrupt political law enforcement establishment of Gotham hate him because they cannot control him. Outsiders tendency to see and solve problems that insiders cannot. They are by nature against the system, against the corruption of the establishment.
“This is what makes Batman iconic. He fights the corrupt establishment.”
Johnson then remarks: “Kind of reminds me of someone.”
The last thing we expected was for former President Donald Trump to be compared to a superhero, but here we are.
For starters one actually wears a mask when required...
The Newsmax host said: “Both Trump and Batman are rich, mysterious, unpredictable guys.”
But those qualities aren’t exactly unique in themselves.
“They own skyscrapers in Gotham. They have a cult-like hero status for throwing their privileged lives away and getting their hands dirty. Both have a helicopter and a plane.”
Perhaps, Johnson should look up the term “hero” before using it to describe the man who was banned from social media for inciting violence after the Capitol Insurrection in January.
“But it’s their outsider status that make them work,” he added, “They have not been part of the corrupt system, so they can see the problems. They can break the machine when it needs to be broken.”
“Break the machine” aka proclaim that a fair election is corrupt and then continuing to spread this misinformation, not exactly a superhero quality... more like the story arc of a villain.
People on Twitter also seemed to find the whole comparison hilarious.
They are both fictional billionaires. https://t.co/uE7xOYIqFq
