Metaphor (met’-a-phor): A comparison made by referring to one thing as another.

The Trump administration is a carnival ride. It is a version of bumper cars purposely crashing into each other: The Secretary of State banging into the Attorney General, who at the same time is going after the Chief of Staff, etc., etc. I wish somebody would pull the plug. Maybe they’d find a better way to relate to each other and the rest of the world too.
