Ah, the Peter principle.[^]
I wouldn't recommend going to the top boss, as in effect you will be telling the top boss that he has bad judgement as he hired this manager.
Working with jerks both at the same level and above you is just an unfortunate aspect of work Sigh | :sigh:
Fortunately you will probably find that the jerks are in the minority although that does not always minimise their effect.
Good luck all the same.
