The dubious notion that he didn't "meddle."

"Partisan politics," "palpable" dangers,

As "tribal" divisions spawned two "echo chambers."

Hurricanes "barreled" and wildfires "raged,"

Rain totals, "historic," cliches at "flood stage."

So "woke" and so "salty," we called them "Nextgen."

On college campuses, "snowflakes" flew:

"Discourse," "engagement" and "hashtagMeToo."
