This is how I picture an average day in the Trump administration, minus the political murder.
Like an opposite-Vice in that the longer I think about it, the more I like it (aka it's actually a well-made and funny historical satire).
Iannucci definitely has a much better grasp than McKay on the kinds of comedy you can extract from the simple situation of bumbling idiots in power. Yet he also realizes the horrific gravity of such a scenario, and there definitely is a real horror to the carelessness with which violence is administered here, most often to innocents. The accidental murder of 1,500 is treated with the annoyed scolding of someone forgetting to take the garbage out.
