So much in politics seems like parody these days that voters in Ukraine reached the only conclusion possible, cut out the middleman, and elected a comedian as president.

President-elect Volodymyr Zelensky is the latest shock election outcome, although he’s far from the first to cash in on popularity built on television to take the top job.

He faces criticism of being an oligarch’s puppet, having no policies and no political experience, but as ICYMI finds out, that sounds like a winning strategy in the 21st century.
