Busiek must surely take the side of J. Jonah Jameson
I'll make America great again by keeping idiot fascists like you from getting political power, Mr. Promoted Tweet. https://t.co/G1m1OH4Xan— Kurt Busiek (@KurtBusiek) August 12, 2016
So why is it you have to pay to get your tweets out to people now, @realDonaldTrump? Could it be you're a loser who's losing ground? Sad.— Kurt Busiek (@KurtBusiek) August 12, 2016
Umm, what proof do you have Trump actually pays for his account? The verification symbol maybe, but I thought Twitter was a free service. In any case, gee whiz, don't politicians always spend money for campaigning? What a lethargic bit of blather about something painfully obvious. And I guess he's got no comment on how Hilary paid herself $250,000 from her own campaign funds, huh?
Hillary's response was : "I know, right? Me too! Welcome to the club!" https://t.co/zPWZ6rzKpM— Kurt Busiek (@KurtBusiek) August 14, 2016
I think this comment, in response to Trump's lamentation about the media not covering him honestly, gives us a good idea what Busiek really thinks of Spider-Man, and J. Jonah Jameson as the web-slinger's media adversary. Because he's putting Trump in the Spidey role while the press takes the role of JJJ.
When reached for comment, the Hillary Clinton campaign couldn’t stop laughing long enough to answer. https://t.co/u3257fXSKb— Kurt Busiek (@KurtBusiek) August 14, 2016
And this, written in reply to Trump's comment about how the MSM is protecting Hilary Clinton, gives us a good idea what he thinks of the Teen Titans, and Bethany Snow as their media adversary. After all, she was protecting Brother Blood and his Scientology-style cult, which she'd secretly been a member of during the 1980-96 run.
As a result, one can only wonder why Busiek wanted to be a superhero writer in years past, and feel glad he hasn't been for a while. His positions here only suggest he doesn't have much faith in the components of the mainstream superhero world.
