“President Perfidy”

Donald “Scrooge” Trump (DST) coldly sits behind his desk and scolds Bob Crochet for putting another small coal on the fire when he wants mounds of coal on the fire to fire up the atomsphere.

Qualities include backstabbing, betrayal, business, disloyalty,
double cross, faithlessness, falseness, falsity, and infidelity.

“I suppose you want the whole day off tomorrow,” says DST. “If it’s not too much of bother, sir,” replies meek Bob with a son with a preexisting condition. “A poor excuse for picking a man’s pocket every twenty-fifth of December!” said DST, buttoning his great-coat to the chin.

Qualities include sellout, treachery, treason, two-timing and faithfulness.

The Ghost of Jacob Marley (Fred Trump),
“When I lived, my spirit, like yours, never walked beyond the narrow limits of our counting house.” “But you were always a good man of business, Jacob, I mean Fred,” says DST. Fred retorts, “Mankind should be our business, Ebenezer, I mean DST.”

DST is then visited by three ghosts:
The Ghost of Christmas Past – Roy Cohn
The Ghost of Christmas Present – James Comey, Michael Cohen, Jeff Sessions, John Roberts, Robert Mueller, John Kelly, and Stormy Daniels (I had to include her, such a cool name)
The Ghost of Christmas Future – U.S. citizens

Each ghost recreates or creates a picture of life beyond DST’s one-sided, selfish view of life and leads toward qualities like allegiance, devotion, faithfulness,
fidelity, loyalty, staunchness, and steadfastness.

The housekeeper says toward the end, “And in keeping with the situation, Merry Christmas and I’d highly recommend a heavy dose of therapy.”

Closing credits roll upwards as we roll downwards.
