The site Politico recently examined the Twitter account of businessman and U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump (@realDonaldTrump) from its inception in 2009 to the present. Politico notes the significance of the account: “Today, @realDonaldTrump is a force, a newsmaker, an agitator, an American political phenomenon that combines the high profile of a presidential candidate with the reach and velocity of social media. It has more than 7.5 million followers. It has tweeted more than 31,000 times. It is a thing.”
Noting the absence of tweets from @realDonaldTrump on the topic of comics, Nothing But Comics ponders what Trump might tweet about comics, were he to take an interest.
Perhaps Trump would comment on the recent nominations for the prestigious 2016 Eisner Awards:
Maybe Trump would tweet the inspirational quotes of comics heroes, such as WWII-era superhero Captain America:
Or, since Trump tweeted a quote attributed to WWII-era fascist dictator and foreign enemy Benito Mussolini, perhaps he might tweet the quote of a WWII-era supervillain, such as the Red Skull:
Nothing But Comics would love to see Trump’s comments on various comics characters, such as Green Lantern, archers Hawkeye and Green Arrow, and Wakandan king and superhero Black Panther:
Given Trump’s controversial views regarding Islam, we think that he might spotlight the controversial graphic novel Holy Terror by Frank Miller; originally conceived as a Batman story but later published by Miller using a different superhero character, Holy Terror follows protagonist The Fixer as he battles Muslim terrorists that attack his city:
Given Trump’s following on Twitter, we believe he would like the election concept presented in DC Comics’ Prez series, a sci-fi satire set in a future America where citizens can vote for president using Twitter:
Maybe Trump would comment on DC Comics’ plans to publish a comic featuring a Chinese Superman:
Would Trump express admiration for certain comics characters, such as Marvel Comics character (and 1976 presidential write-in candidate) Howard the Duck?:
Would Trump use comics references to express disdain for his political rivals?:
Maybe Trump would tweet provocative, divisive opinions about comics:
But all of this is pure speculation; although Trump uses his Twitter account to shape public opinion about various people and political topics, Trump doesn’t tweet about comics. And maybe that’s a good thing.
