At this point Trump is his own best metaphor. There's nothing that you could call Trump that would be worse or more appropriate than "Trump."

Dude, that's what I said on page 2 of this thread in July 2018.

Same here some time back, but it's going to take a while, I think, before it settles in by itself, as such names as McCarthy or Quisling have.

Trumpian. That's a pretty nice word, trumpian, an adjective that puts together the vast array of repulsive traits that the gibbering orange creature personifies. That's a word that needs to be popularized, trumpian. A trmpian policy, that trumpian person, checking that trumpian impulse.

That is one actual contribution this freeloading crook will have made. Given a new word rich in nuance to the English language.

I hear no-trump is now the most popular bid in contract bridge.

Not surprising. But really? Other than in discussions like this?


eta: Yep, references aplenty in Google. Not quite of the Quisling category though. And apparently sometimes used to refer to Trump-cultists, rather than Trump-like qualities.
