Easter-Egging Insults

In this piece in The Economist about Trump's takeover of the GOP, they got in at least three subtle insults aimed at Trump and his base.

See if you can spot them.

Interesting. A good read. The thing that bothered me was the end with the "3 possible endings".
I don' want any part of a "Right Wing New Deal". I can see so much hurt behind such a 'deal'.

So I pull up the article, begin reading and looking for the insults....and realize that just stating the facts, the words/tweets, the actions, the cloud of, of , well....excrement hanging around Trump like the dirt hung around Peanuts' Pigpen, that myriad cloud of corruption/incompetence/smarmyness...which would be insulting if attributed to what I think of (or used to think of) as a normal person. And he glories in it and his base worships him glorying in it.
It's like coming to some out-of-the-way Third World country, traveling back into the bush and coming across some obscene rite being performed in a small village. Think Shirley Jackson's The Lottery.

I don't know about "party of one", but the rest come from Mel Brooks movies.
