Call Them Whopper & Whopper Jr.
It turns out that the “Nothing Burger” that the Trumps, members of the administration, and their accomplices at Fox News and alt-right media have been calling the Russian collusion story is a very large Something Burger.
It looks like “two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions, on a sesame seed bun,” with the special sauce being Russian dressing.
But let’s all start calling the president* and his eldest son by appropriate burger names for the extraordinary liars that they are: “Whopper” and “Whopper Jr.”
- With thanks to my friends Vicki Slater Robinson, Lauri Evans Vena, and Dominick Carlucci for some of the inspiration that led me to these names.
