In the Netflix hit “Don’t Look Up,” emissaries of Meryl Streep — playing a Trumpian U.S. president — urge her loyal backers not to gaze skyward at a visible comet hurtling toward Earth and that right-wing pundits dismiss as a hoax or exaggerated threat. Nearly one year after the Jan. 6 riot, plenty of real Republicans are effectively telling Americans, “Don’t Look Back” at the mob of Trump supporters who stormed the U.S. Capitol.

As the world watches a riven, fact-relative nation still at war with itself, U.S. allies are delivering their own verdict: That an erratic United States can no longer be seen as the model democracy or reliable partner that some once thought it to be.
