“ When the winds of change blow, some people build walls and others build windmills.”

Bannon goes to jail for “We Build the Wall”, and Trümp says windmills cause cancer.

“To talk much and arrive nowhere is the same as climbing a tree to catch a fish.”

Trümp talks much, comes and goes, releasing piranha into the sea of supporters he doesn’t want to shake hands with — ever.

“Often one finds one’s destiny just where one hides to avoid it.”

White House bunker.

“Outside noisy, inside empty.”
