Reap What You Sow

203A9AC5-D06F-4F7A-A6FB-0C0C6411176D“Donald, you can’t continue to sow discontent on the American people,” the president’s lawyer told him. “Ultimately you will reap what you sow, and it won’t be pretty.”

“I know what I’m doing, believe me,” the president said. “I’m a very smart person, a genius, a stable genius.”

“All due respect, Mr. President,” the lawyer argued, “even you can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear.”
