Doctor Who and Trump

I don’t usually follow Doctor Who, but thought I would look into it now in order to see how its new female Dr Who is shaping up. I thought she was super. Last Sunday’s episode (series 11, episode 4) was up to date in another way, casting a Donald Trump-like figure as its villain. (See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FLAEJW-RjF8; 3’50” in.) He had all the right personality traits, attitudes, and ambitions, including presidential. And was utterly villainous. No-one could miss the parallel. So long, that is, as they weren’t too distracted by the giant spiders. They were super, too.
