Donald Trump actually thought Christian Bale was Bruce Wayne. What?
When did you realize that Superman, Spiderman or Batman isn't real - somewhere around 6, 7 or 10 years, maybe? However, a well-known personality, now a world leader, apparently believed that actor Christian Bale, who played the role of vigilante superhero Batman, was Bruce Wayne, Batman's alter-ego, in real life too. And he's none other than the current US President, Donald Trump. Here's more.
Recently, at a premiere of his upcoming movie, Vice, Bale told media about his 2011 meeting with Trump, when he was shooting for The Dark Knight Rises in Trump Tower. "I think he thought I was Bruce Wayne because I was dressed as Bruce. So he talked to me like I was Bruce Wayne and I just went along with it," he said.
Bale said "it was quite entertaining" for him to keep acting like Bruce Wayne but he did find it odd. The actor further added that back then, he had "no idea at the time that he (Trump) would think about running for President."
If this has come as a surprise to you, then you're in for some more. Apparently, the US President does not believe in global warming and thinks that climate change is a hoax. Six years ago, he tweeted, "The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make US manufacturing non-competitive." In 2014, he posted a similar tweet.
Those were years ago, but is Trump still oblivious about climate change? Just last month, he quashed a study produced by his administration, which involved 13 federal agencies and over 300 leading climate scientists. The study warned of the potentially catastrophic impact of climate change, but Trump dismissed it saying, "I don't believe in it." Is Trump confused between what's real and what's not?
