Rumpy Trumpy

Spotted this evening, on the London Tube.  And this raises the question of the part played by humor in the normalization process.  Does this have the same paradoxical, Bakhtinian effect of reinforcing power as other forms of the carnivalesque?  Or is it rather - as I want to think, even if this is the Evening Standard, a belittling, a deflation of the orange pomposity?
