On Saturday it was reported that America lost a national treasure as the original Batman, Adam West, died.
And it took literally minutes for his death to be politicized.
John Ziegler, a columnist for the often left-leaning news website Mediaite, attempted to make a comparison of West’s Batman to President Trump.
But it just looked like a pathetic and weak attempt at humor that fell flat.
Adam West’s Batman was a lot like Trump. Those without fully developed brains took him seriously, while most adults realized it was a joke. https://t.co/tYMczuesNY

I don’t care for Trump but sad you have to take this sad story and make it political. Rest in piece Batman.

In 2015, the original caped crusader, who also played the role of the mayor of the fictional town of Quahog Rhode Island in the “Family Guy” series, sent a tongue-in-cheek tweet to the future president.
After future President Trump told a young boy on the campaign trail that he was Batman, West “thanked” him for removing the “crimefighting weight” from his shoulder.
