Everyone comparing Trump’s Superman t-shirt idea to Willy Wonka’s stunt: Gene Wilder did that somersault stunt in that first scene to teach the audience not to trust Wonka for the rest of the movie. Just putting that out there.
The New York Times reported Saturday that President Trump floated the idea of a stunt when he left Walter Reed National Military Medical Center after treatment for COVID-19. The plan called for Trump to appear frail when people first saw him. Then he would open his button-down dress shirt and reveal a Superman t-shirt.
