The former President came back from his day at his golf course with a noticeable limp. One of his aides asked him what happened and Trump explained that he drove a ball into the rough and got so angry that he kicked a tree trunk and broke his toe. “But don’t you tell anyone about that,” Trump said. “If you snitch on me to the press I will have to fire you.”
“Unfortunately,” the aide told one of the other aides later, “this is the price you pay when you work for someone with a personality that is off the scale in insanity and narcissism. He’s a total gabble-ratchet and should be sent to a funny farm for the rest of his life.”
“Yeah,” said the other aide, “but I think they should send him to Sing Sing Prison, up where he belongs.”
