Zelensky and Trump—Two Performers, One Hero

From a New York Times column by Maureen Dowd headlined “Zelensky and Trump: Two Performers, One Hero”:

History is full of strange odysseys and intersections.

But it’s bizarre that two men who were both front page news in the Friday Times started on similar paths and, with a consequential encounter along the way, ended up so differently.

Donald Trump and Volodymyr Zelensky both played leaders on TV shows and then became leaders in real life. They both used social media to gain power. And they both had zany acting gigs.
