An official government budget report claimed that Batman, Spider-Man and John Cleese were all White House economics interns in 2018.
Martha Gimbel, a former Labor Department and Council of Economic Advisers official who now works as the research director for the job posting site Indeed, tweeted a screenshot Tuesday afternoon of the president’s 2018 economic report that included Cleese, “Peter Parker,” “Bruce Wayne” and others as interns.
“The Economic Report of the President has revealed that the quality of interns at CEA is much better than it was when I was there,” Gimbel tweeted. “We never got cool ones like Steve Rogers, Bruce Wayne, Peter Parker, Aunt May, and John Cleese.”

Along with Spider-Man and Batman, the report also claimed that Parker’s beloved Aunt May, Star Trek‘s famous captain Kathryn Janeway, Game of Thrones‘ Jon Snow (misspelled as “John”) and Star Wars‘ Jabba The Hutt (“J.T. Hutt”) are also CEA interns.
As of press time, the 711-page official CEA report still included the references to the fictional characters.
Check out responses to the bizarre intern list below:
J.T. Hutt = Jabba the Hutt
Aunt May = Spiderman's aunt
Peter Parker = Spiderman
Steve Rogers = Captain America
John Snow = Jon Snow?
Bruce Wayne = Batman
Kathryn Janeway = Captain of Star Trek ship
John Cleese = comedian from Monty PythonADVERTISEMENT

Makes sense that JT Hutt interned for Trump TBH. https://t.co/ijBUtXPutS

Interns who helped with the president's economic report apparently include John Cleese, John Snow, Peter Parker, Bruce Wayne, Steve Rogers, Kathryn Janeway, J.T. (Jabba The) Hutt, and someone's "Aunt May."ADVERTISEMENT
I'm guessing John Snow knows nothing.
