Distraction is often a way for us to avoid answering those uncomfortable questions. It had been some years, since I dealt with a full-fledged narcissist, until my most recent supervisor. I didn’t pick up on it at first, as the niceties overshadowed the deep-seated inconsistencies. Eventually, the errors became more apparent and the conversations often drained anything fruitful into something being completely one-sided.
I see the same constantly self-centeredness in the present world leader who this comic is named for. Their constant reductionist attitude to complex geopolitics and apparent derision towards domestic policies gives the American populace little faith in who is leading us. Never in recent history, does America feel lull and directionless than the present tense, as we all know what gross incompetence looks like. In the third issue of The Incapable Trump, the brilliant Omar Mirza uncovers how such an imbecile navigates foreign policy.
We’re taken to the hospital where Trump’s condition is closely being watched by Dr. Iman Ali, a situation Mueller looks to get down to the truth about. We also find Kim Jung-Un, who offers a reward to capture the Incapable Trump. This leads President Trump to enlist the help of Dennis Rodman as they prepare to visit North Korea. What unfolds is a hilarious exchange between these two delusional office-bearers.
Overall, one of the best parodies of this officeholder that almost everyone agrees should have kept his day job. The story by Mirza gives readers what they have come to expect from the story and more than they ever expected. The art by the creative team is beautiful. Altogether, the story gets better with each issue.
