Marvel attacks Donald Trump by turning him into a MODOK variant

This may not be the first time they've attacked Trump recently, but it sure is as stupid as they come:
In Spider-Gwen Annual #1 — which centers on an alternate universe in which Peter Parker’s girlfriend, Gwen Stacey, was the one bitten by a radioactive spider — the villainous Modok bears more than a striking resemblance to the presumptive GOP presidential nominee.

In the new comic, Modok is now M.O.D.A.A.K. (Mental Organism Designed as America’s King), a giant-headed villain with a tiny body who plans to rule the world.
And this villain apparently bears some resemblance to Trump. He's even depicted spouting disparaging lines:
In the story, Trump-MODAAK yells at some vaguely brown-skinned people to get "back on your feet, foreign filth!" to which they reply that they're from Waco, Texas. The Captain America of that world smashes him in the face with her shield, while the aged Steve Rogers of that world narrates, "It's a weird new world out there, Cap... Full of enemies that look and think and act too much like the demons in my mirror. The monsters men like me have never been able to defeat alone. This nations' anger and greed and fear are still very real."
They may be marketing it as "parody" but forget it, I've long ceased being fooled by that defense. It sure does confirm Spider-Gwen's not the classic they must want some people to think it is. Even some of the commenters on ComicBook.Com and The Wrap weren't amused, and saw through writer Jason Latour's idiocy for what it is: just more politically-driven dimwittery that clogs out all entertainment value.

In which case, November will be really fun, when Marvel will go full Red Skull on Trump. Or conversely, make Hillary Clinton the next Lady Thor, since enough Marvel writers would probably view her as a goddess, anyway.

Marvel has completely gone off its rocker. Did you know that last year they did a comic where Nick Fury and his black son went back in time to save baby Obama from Hate-Monger while pushing support for the BlackLivesMatter racists? Issue was Fury: S.H.I.E.L.D. 50th Anniversary #1. Completely ridiculous. I'd love to get your opinion on it.

The Nick Fury story does sound disturbing. I'll certainly try to do some research on it.
