Have you ever listened to an artist describe a person in lyrics and known someone to fit that exact description? I think of President Donald Trump when I hear the following lyrics from the Hamilton soundtrack.
"You have invented a new kind of stupid / A damage you can never undo kind of stupid / An open all the cages in the zoo kind of stupid / Truly, you didn't think this through kind of stupid"
This. All of this.
2. "Farmer Refuted"
"My dog speaks more eloquently than thee"
One word: covfefe.
3. "Meet Me Inside"
"You solve nothing, you aggravate our allies to the south"
...and the north...and the east...and the west.
4. "History Has Its Eyes On You"
"History has its eyes on you"
We all do.
"Why do you assume you're the smartest in the room? / Soon that attitude may be your doom!"
-- and our doom.
6. "Schulyer Defeated"
"I swear your pride will be the death of us all"
Get it...pride rock.
7. "Blow Us All Away"
"He refused to apologize, we had to let the peace talks cease"
The Paris Agreement and almost all of his interactions with foreign leaders.
"You and your words, obsessed with your legacy / Your sentences border on senseless / And you are paranoid in every paragraph / How they perceive you"
Replace sentences with tweets and paragraph with speech.
9. "The Election of 1800"
"Ask him a question: it glances off, he obfuscates, he dances"
Always avoiding questions.
10. "Your Obedient Servant"
"Now you call me 'amoral,' a 'dangerous disgrace'"
...to the country.
11. "The World Was Wide Enough"
"I wish I could tell you what was happening in his brain"
Kim has one possibility.
12. "Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story"
"I try to make sense of your thousands of pages of writings"
We are all trying to make sense of your thousands of tweets.
13. "Aaron Burr, Sir"
"If you stand for nothing, Burr, what'll fall for"
What do you stand for that you will actually stand by?
