But what to call the scandal that promises to be the most noteworthy in American history, at least so far? After all, Nixon was brought down by just one “smoking gun,” a tape in which he waxed enthusiastic in favor of obstructing justice. At the rate we’re going, the Trump thing is going to have more smoking guns than Iwo Jima. So, let’s get on with this. “Russiagate” is just not going to cut it, otherwise everybody would be using it by now. I personally came up with “Putincanoodle,” “Espionageageddon,” “Ivankadonkadoodle,” "Urinetrouble," and the one I’ll be using from now on, just because it sounds so prescient when said aloud: “TRUMPALOOZA!”
"Shit Sandwich Shop" also sounded good. But you guys had other ideas. Here are the best:
BRETT EVANS: “Putin-scootin’ Boogie.”
GWEN LESLIE WILSON: “TNT” (for Traitor and Treason)
JOHN SIMPSON: “Oligarchs ‘R Us”
DIANE BERMUDEZ CHETELAT: Both “Trumpnado” and “Trumpleputinskin.”
KARLOTTA MYERS: “Red Puppets.”
MIKE ROSE aka MARK ROE: “Clusterfuckingghazi.”
RICHARD PORTER: “Twitler Wars.”
SARAH RIVERA: “Juniorgate.”
BETTY YETTA: “Trumpets and Strumpets.”
The participation award goes to NANCY PARRISH RANDLEMAN, who offered up “Judas Goat (Trump)Gate!
Russian Doll COLLUSION!(matryoshka dolls)
GREED IS GOOD GATE!
PUTIN 'S SOLUTIONGATE !
REPUBLICAN GENOCIDAL GATES of HELL !"
I don’t know if these are going to catch on, Nancy, but you took your assignment seriously. Thank you.
But the winner, who also came up with the nearly equally worthy “Kremlin Gremlin” and “Pedal to the Meddle,” is WENDY MCDONOUGH, for “DOLT 45!”
