"Zelenskiy defeated incumbent Petro Poroshenko in a landslide 73% victory last month. It was a stunning result for the political novice, whose previous experience in government is almost entirely fictional: On Ukrainian TV, Zelenskiy is famous for playing a high school history teacher who is elected as Ukraine's president after a video of him ranting against the status quo goes viral.

In his inauguration address, Zelenskiy urged ministers and government officials to resign if they aren't willing to work for change. And he urged Cabinet leaders and others not to put his portrait on their office walls.

"I really do not want my pictures in your offices, for the President is not an icon, an idol or a portrait," he said. "Hang your kids' photos instead, and look at them each time you are making a decision."

We should be so lucky to have comedienne rather than the grotesque horror cartoon Pres we have.

Sounds like what America needs.

Because it sure isn't Biden.

The American equivalent would be dissolving Congress.

I've been waiting for some Trumpite to say that.

Who supplied you with the meme?
