Was Donald Trump among the movie fans pushing the latest entry in the Marvel universe to box office records this past weekend? Where else would the president have gotten the idea to play superhero, rushing to meet an active shooter — as he said he would have at a Florida high school — with only his bravery and, one imagines, a fantasy “Black Panther” suit to shield him?
On second thought, given his low opinion of the African continent, it’s hard to imagine him getting inspiration from any country there, even the fictional Wakanda.
Jacob Zuma resisted until his ouster was inevitable, and he still may face legal consequences. But he is no longer president after his African National Congress, pressed by an opposition ready to pounce in the next election, pushed him out the door.
