As election year 2016 grinds agonizingly on, the inevitability of Donald Trump (or Drumpf, if you prefer) becoming the Republican presidential nominee is looming on the horizon like a very dark cloud with a tinfoil lining. Democrats shudder at the thought of a President Trump*. Republicans are in a panic because their Frankenstein’s monster is a zombie chicken coming home to roost. People who dislike Trump dislike his arrogance, his bombast and his lack of decorum. They wish his ego were the World Trade Center on 9/10. I don’t know if Winston Churchill ever heard of Trump, who was only eighteen when Churchill died, but if he had, this famous Churchill quote might have applied to him as well as Sir Richard Stafford-Cripps:
“There but for the grace of God…goes God.”
There are three groups who are not, unlike most of us, dismayed at Trump’s ascendancy. The first, of course is his rabid followers, who have been promised legal fees in exchange for providing informal security for Trump’s public appearances. The second is network executives, who see endless dollar signs in the ratings boosts that Trump provides.
Politics: A strife of interests masquerading as a contest of principles. The conduct of public affairs for private advantage.”
— Ambrose Bierce, The Devil’s Dictionary
So who is the third group? Comedians, of course, especially late-night comedians. Trump’s personality inspires – nay – demands ridicule, and a Trump presidency, however disastrous it would be for the rest of us, would be a new Golden Age of Comedy. Saturday Night Live would be in no danger of cancellation for the next four or eight years, and fansof The Daily Show might even stop missing Jon Stewart. One type of comedy that is particularly suited to politics is the one-liner. Short, pithy and usually barbed, it has a long history. Aristotle is credited with the oldest known one liner: “”On his feet he wore…blisters.”
And who best to be the butt of a long string of one-liners than Donald Drumpf? Herewith are the first of a series of Official Donald Trump® Brand™ one liners. Some are mine and some were recalculated for this meridian (which is a polite way of saying plagiarized). Some of them are low blows, but as a wise man, Anonymous, once said, “A cheap shot is a terrible thing to waste.”
