https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wizard_of_Oz_(character)

quote:  “The Wizard is one of the characters in The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Unseen for most of the novel, he is the ruler of the Land of Oz and highly venerated by his subjects. Believing he is the only man capable of solving their problems, Dorothy and her friends travel to the Emerald City, the capital of Oz, to meet him. Oz is very reluctant to meet them, but eventually each is granted an audience, one by one. In each of these occasions, the Wizard appears in a different form, once as a giant head, once as a beautiful fairy, once as a ball of fire, and once as a horrible monster. When, at last, he grants an audience to all of them at once, he seems to be a disembodied voice.

Eventually, it is revealed that Oz is actually none of these things, but rather an ordinary conman from Omaha, Nebraska, who has been using a lot of elaborate magic tricks and props to make himself seem “great and powerful.” Working as a magician for a circus, he wrote OZ (the initials of his first two forenames, Oscar being his first, and Zoroaster being the first of his seven middle names) on the side of his hot air balloon for promotional purposes. One day his balloon sailed into the Land of Oz, and he found himself worshipped as a great sorcerer. As Oz had no leadership at the time, he became Supreme Ruler of the kingdom, and did his best to sustain the myth.”  (end quote from this article)

Among other things, the Wizard of Trump is manipulating his supporters to believe that when the truth about him is revealed his supporters will see those truths as fake news, and they will see those who report the truth as enemies of the people.

Too bad we can’t just click our heels together and wake up safe in Kansas with Auntie Em.

Or Toto to dash through the golden living room in Trump Tower, racing into the bedroom and barking at the closet where the Russians are hiding.

I think Trump rather to be a Wicked Witch - let’s test my theory by dropping a farmhouse on him.

I can find him in the whole cast. ‘Tis easy…

He is the feeble Wizard who speaks from a controlled and technically enhanced platform while barely knowing how a bag of hot air works. He is the automated man with no heart. He is the roaring lion with no testable courage. He is the made-up blustering scarecrow without a brain. He is the clueless and innocent Dorothy, in that he is in way over his rainbow. He is her little dog, too, in that he escapes incarceration. He is the delegation from the Lollipop Guild stacked vertically under an overcoat. He is the horse of any color you want to see. He is the flying monkey who spread our guts all over the forest. He is Glenda, the Witch of the North where the sparkling and good white people come from. He is the Witch of the West, who will leave us all in a plume of black smoke.
