I'm not in the business of telling people how to do their jobs, but if you're an elected official and want to instill trust in your constituents, show up with a Captain America shield.

Lan Diep proudly wore a Captain America shield on his arm while taking the oath of office this week. 

Dan Liep says there's "no metaphor."

“Except that it represents America’s ideals and I do hope to aspire to those ideals of fair play, equal justice, and democracy during my term,” Diep said. “But really, I just had this awesome shield and I wanted a chance to show it off.”

So wear that shield. Your constituents will either love you or think you don't take this job seriously at all. One or the other!

The major tenants of his platform? Legalizing marijuna, getting dogs banned from restaurants, keeping people with giant feet from taking up space on the sidewalk, and raising the minimum wage. 

His only major concern seems to be the candidacy of Hillary Clinton ("women love her!").

Here's the official measure in all its glory. We encourage any and all from the great state of Missouri to get going and start high fiving each other immediately.



Hopefully once this is done we can make this the official national greeting:

The loathing runs very deep here, guys. Just last week, Marvel released this year’s Spider-Gwen Annual, an 'alternate-reality series' that portrays a black female Captain America as a hero. The villain's known by everyone as the Mental Organism Designed as America’s King, or more crisply, “M.O.D.A.A.K.”

M.O.D.A.A.K. wails incessantly about 'foreign filth' and how he wants to squeeze 'n crush America in his allmighty powerful hands...

Readers have already been quick to note the glaring similarities between the comic's villain and Donald Trump himself:

Judging by Latour's Twitter feed, which touts a marked dedication to a hatred targeted at Trump, you've gotta think the talented Marvel artist really was inspired enough out of a passionate hatred to create a villain that exists solely to make fun of Trump.
