Politics has always been something of a circus, no matter which side of the political spectrum you fall on. However, if there’s one figure that’s become an unparalleled point of discussion, it’s U.S. President Donald Trump. Be it his America First mindset, or his talk first, think later attitude, the past few years of news has had no shortage of him being at the center.
This latest piece of news is one of those rare instances of being both political and geek-centric in nature. On the heels of some controversial statements from the president regarding other countries, writer Sara Benincasa took to Twitter to make an offer to journalists. Here’s what she said:
“I am offering $300 to the journalist who very seriously asks Trump his opinion on our nation’s relations with Wakanda and gets the question and answer recorded live on video. I know $300 doesn’t sound like a lot to some people but I also know what most reporters make so…$300.”
Fans of Marvel will recognize Wakanda as the fictional nation from which Black Panther hails, and with this question, they’re clearly hoping to catch Trump in the act of speaking without any knowledge of a subject.
While this call to action has led to some asking Trump the question on his official Twitter, but as far as we can tell, there have been no bites from Trump, nor has anyone asked Trump, in person, about this. We doubt this will ever pop up, as there are countless more important things to do than bait Trump, but we’ll have to wait and see if anything comes of this.
