Magic Shake-Ball

Dear Shake-Ball:
President Trump? Really?

Upon the corner of the moon
There hangs a vap'rous drop profound,
I'll catch it ere it come to ground;
And that, distill'd by magic sleights,
Shall raise such artificial sprites
As by the strength of their illusion
Shall draw him on to his confusion.
(Macbeth 3.5.23-29)


Thank God. You pointed me to a scene from Macbeth that Shakespeare didn't actually write. A pretender scene fit for a pretender president. Perfect. Plus, if he actually does get elected, it sounds like he'll get messed with by some righteous sorceresses. Out, out, damn spot.
