Turning Away from Turnip

A regular reader asked me to stop referring to Donald Trump as Turnip or the Turnip. What did turnips do to deserve this defamation? she asked. They are delicious. You can even pickle them.

Nothing, I say. The turnip is faultless. You are right.

I have affronted this noble vegetable and will henceforth use only Turmp (or Trump, I suppose) to refer to him. He is not good enough to share their humble name.

Rest well, turnip friends.
