Bomphiologia (bom-phi-o-lo’-gi-a): Exaggeration done in a self-aggrandizing manner, as a braggart.
Listen to this: I had the most Electoral College votes ever recorded in the history of democracy. The people love me. They do! Believe me! That’s no exaggeration. It’s wonderful. It’s great. It’s huge. Once in a lifetime! A mandate!
Oh–and by the way. One month in office: I’ve boosted the economy & cut the national debt. I’m not kidding! It’s true–national debt is down by $12 billion. That’s a lot of dollars! $12 billion! It’s true. It’s fabulous. Believe me! You’ve got to love it!
It’s all good! There is no stopping me & there’s no stopping you!
Thank you for your support!
