    To date, I agree, but the potential for a twist is there.



    I did say "Depending how this thread develops....."


    Ah well. You're right. More like a damp squib. (or should that be dead-damp-squid?)

    We wonders, yes, we wonders just how the OP thought the site worked... It's called MSE, not PsychicsRUs.com... If anyone wants to use that, I think it's still available.

    Squibbier and squibbier.
    What is this life if, sweet wordsmith, we have no time to take the pith?
    I took it upon myself to investigate a trifle; it had custard, jelly, soggy sponge things...

    Just in case anyone is interested although even with the OP it's still clear as mud.

    "dangerous president" is not a malopropism - he's called Trump (though I can think of a few other mal......s that would apply).

    Example of a malapropism "I've just brought a house" when someone has bought a house.

    Example of another dangerous president, John F Kennedy. The Bay of Pigs invasion he ordered in 1961 and the subsequent Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962 almost led to WW3.
