An old Soviet joke: “What doesn’t buzz and doesn’t fit in your ass? A Soviet machine for buzzing inside your ass.”
GPT3, make me a Trump joke using this prompt.
I'm thinking something related to leading the COVID-19 crisis might work here...

A sentence should contain no unnecessary words, a paragraph no unnecessary sentences, for the same reason that a drawing should have no unnecessary lines and a machine no unnecessary parts. This requires not that the writer make all his sentences short, or that he avoid all detail and treat his subjects only in outline, but that every word tell.

random commenter on whether The Rock is bigger than Jesus wrote:Jesus was notorious for only doing cardio, and they didn’t even have protein powder back then, let alone steroids, so that’s a fair assessment.

Washington Post wrote: A group of prominent former world leaders and statesmen chastised Trump on Thursday for refusing to accept his loss in the U.S. election and “putting at risk the functioning of American democracy.”

The group, called the Elders, typically comments on world conflicts and violations of human rights or democratic principles.
...
Former president Jimmy Carter is an emeritus member of the Elders.
"Emeritus member of the Elders" sounds like life goals.
