Our movie villain president

I love all the headlines along the lines of “Trump appears to push aside the Leader of Montenegro.”  No “appears” about it.  At least, not to those of us with, you know, vision.  Anyway, I was trying to think if I had ever seen anything quite like this before–especially Trump’s hilarious preening as he takes his place at the front.

In case you haven’t seen it, my favorite take is JK Rowling’s:

Anyway, I realized I’ve never actually seen anything quite like this in real life.  Seriously.  I have seen it portrayed, though– in movies where they have cartoonishly evil villains act like this.  This is seriously far more Dr. Evil than something you would expect from a world leader.
