Trump Isn't Hitler: He's Zaphod Beeblebrox!

“His job is not to wield power but to draw attention away from it.” — Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
Trump isn't Hitler: He's Zaphod Beeblebrox! I didn't really make the connection until someone mentioned this in relation to Oumuamua:
Trillian:  You idiot! You signed the order to destroy Earth!
Zaphod:  I did?
Arthur:  He did?
Trillian:  Love and kisses Zaphod? You didn't even read it, did you?
Zaphod:  Well, I'm president, I don't have a lot of time for reading.
Trillian:  My whole planet destroyed because you thought someone wanted your autograph!
Thinking about it, Douglas Adams describes him as “Zaphod Beeblebrox, adventurer, ex-hippy, good timer, (crook? quite possibly), manic self-publicist, terribly bad at personal relationships, often thought to be completely out to lunch.”  The last bit sounds pretty much like most of the criticism I heard about Trump during the campaign: he was too crazy to win.
Now that he has won: everybody is wondering why he won.  Of course, there isn't too much scrutiny to things like the electoral college, Diebold voting machines, the Democratic party's not being really democratic, etcetera.
No, just sit back and watch the side show while hoping like fuck he doesn't sign the order for Earth's destruction because he thinks someone wants his autograph.
