    For a significant number of the faithful, it seems best to assume there is no bottom. And no need for the suspect imaginings of literary degenerates like Cabell when some meme makers have already declared the man God Emperor.

      Methinks there's a desperate need for some comedian or comedienne to take that and run with it. After all, he has already established the framework for treating his administration and his supporters as the jokes they had made themselves to be.

          Oh well, there is a parody of Gilbert & Sullivan's Modern Major-General Song specifically aimed at Trump:
          Randy Rainbow Goes All ‘Pirates Of Penzance’ On Trump’s Putin Loyalty

          We may as well enjoy it.

            According to Stephen Colbert: DT's main defense lawyer for his impeachment trial; one Bruce Castor should be considered less competent than the meme gone viral Lawyer Cat Rod Ponton!

              I just want to go back to the days when I was disappointed in my country and not terrified.

                I just realized something - Donald Trump, erstwhile Presi Dent of the United States of America - Dent as in the late Arthur Dent, Dent as in Panel-Beaters' Delight - is Baron Captain Armiad-naam-Sliforg-ig-Vortan in modern dress. Once more Mike hits the nail on the head ....
