29. Guess Who?

This doodle doesn’t intentionally relate to any of the words below. It’s just that last time I promised ‘toons.

I ran across the following while reading a fantasy/sci-fi novel by this award-winning author who also happens to be a fellow Philadelphian.

“The incompetent man issues many orders so that he may look decisive, overrules subordinates in order to appear powerful, contradicts himself frequently so that no one dares act without his presence, spreads chaos and confusion so that others will be forced to look to him for alleviation of their misery.”
Michael Swanwick, Chasing the Phoenix

The novel was published in 2015, but the description, in my opinion, fits a certain public figure to a “T.”

Can you guess who?
