2000AD predicted Trump

Ive been reading 2000AD since 1977 and still have my copy of the original Judge Dredd story.

But

The makers of 2000 AD, the comic anthology where Judge Dredd strips appear, have got several predictions right. One of their most notable was casting a certain TV reality star as a future president.

As editor Matt Smith explains, the world of the story in question, published in 2011 as The Day the Zombo Died, was "run by this rubbish government getting everything wrong".

A ruthless President Trump is seen firing members of his staff, similar to the contestants on his hit show The Apprentice.

"That's 2000 AD picking cultural figures and lampooning them, not realising how close to the bone it would end up being," Smith concludes.
