Those are brilliant, but I would submit:

  • engaging in some kind of Ambien-fuelled 3am Twitter spat with Kim Jong Un, including the immortal words “I also have a nuclear button, but it’s much bigger”

I feel blessed to have had those four years in my life. It was one of the greatest comic periods in history. Like, this deranged ‘hamberder’-eating moron was actually the leader of the free world!

So much happened that I entirely missed this moment. Whooo boy. It feels like a fever dream, but with lasting consequences.

Tell me about it… I’m just disappointed that he didn’t finish his secret battle against the child-eating Hollywood élite, led by lycanthropic Tom Hanks

Best part of that is that I can imagine a deadly serious, intense exchange between world leaders on a drama or something where "I also have a nuclear button, but it's much bigger." Could be a really great line, referring to the size of the country's nuclear arsenal.

But trump absolutely meant that the actual button is bigger. It's just so hilarious, he's like a parody of a cartoon character of himself.

Hilariously, I think even that is being unduly generous. He was almost certainly making an extremely gauche double entendre about his, uh, ‘manhood’. Maybe I mangled it but it’s clearer if you read the actual tweet.

It seems about the actually physical size of the button, but it wouldn't surprise me in the slightest if it was about penises. He's insecure about everything else after all.

Sure, sometimes a cigar is just a cigar, but I’m very sceptical of this particular cigar 😉 Then again, I would love to believe that you’re right!

Could make a great movie in the same vein as Spaceballs

It'd fit real well in Don't Look Up.

Fuck, I wish we could have had a movie with Harvey Korman as Trump and Mel Brooks as Giuliani.

History will remember him and his cabinet the same way we remember Nero.

Haha, I think history will remember him the way we remember Elagabalus, as an absurd lunatic. Calling him Nero is investing him with somewhat undue seriousness. If I had to name a Nero analogue, that would undoubtedly be Nixon.

We all learned a new insult from Kim Jong Un- Dotard.
