DC Comics Calls Trump A 'Racist Short-Fingered Failed Meat Salesman' – But Makes Him President

So, Hellblazer Rebirth #1by Simon Oliver and Moritat, published by DC Comics yesterday, has street-level magician John Constantine returning home to England.


He's been in New York for the last few years, appearing in Constantine and Justice League Dark for DC Comics. And he has some fond memories.


Jimmy's bar – is that Jimmy Palmiotti? And is he talking to the recently late Darwyn Cooke? A sweet tribute. But Constantine does feel he has to get out. And why?


A certain "racist, short-fingered, failed meat salesman" – there's only one person he's talking about there, Donald Trump, the Republican Presidential candidate. Yes, no wonder he has to head to the UK. Um….

24_04…has anyone told him about Brexit yet? And check the newspaper headline…
24_20"Beauty pageant owner becomes leader of the free world"…

That's right folks, in the DC Rebirth Universe, Donald Trump has won the Presidency of the United States. This is now established on panel canon.

Either that or it's terrible British journalism. Maybe someone will ask DC co-publisher Dan DiDio at a panel at San Diego Comic-Con.
