you're right.That's brilliantly-done, technically (is that an application of some sort of existing 'face-morphing' software, or just a result of very assiduous searching for exactly the right existing photos to cut-and-paste?).
But I don't think it's a great analogy, as the whole point was Murphy's "Valentine" was a street-smart and hyper-articulate hustler with an "instinctive" aptitude for the requirements of his new job (even as I type that I wonder again about the politics of that movie - is it being right-wing or left-wing? Can't work it out). And also who turned out to have a functioning moral compass after all.
I don't get that impression about Walker at all.
It's only a dig at the shame of the GOP, because Greedy McWhiteTrumps (lol i forget their names...Maximillian was one? Chester?) are the analogies for the joke, and it's exact. The design and staging is all exactly the same. ...only the first one was a satirical fiction, played for brilliant comedy.
the second was actual grown adults in the real world turning a once-proud country into their literal toilets out of pure, unchecked hubris and lust.
