The irony, of course, is that Hamilton's quote applies much more easily to Trump's opponents in the Democrat party and deep state than Trump himself, who is literally the opposite of this.
At the end of Thursday’s night’s episodes, Lorre, who co-created the shows, posted one of his “Chuck Lorre Productions” vanity cards with a quote from the Founding Father that was recently used in a Washington Post op-ed by Hamilton biography Ron Chernow, arguing Hamilton would have supported attempts by Democratic Party lawmakers to impeach Trump.
The use of Hamilton’s quote was a suggestion that Trump may be deliberately seeking to inflict chaos on the country by repeatedly trying to embarrass the General Government while scoffing at the principles of liberty.
The quote is as follows:
When a man unprincipled in private life, desperate in his fortune, bold in his temper . . . despotic in his ordinary demeanour — known to have scoffed in private at the principles of liberty — when such a man is seen to mount the hobby horse of popularity — to join in the cry of danger to liberty — to take every opportunity of embarrassing the General Government & bringing it under suspicion — to flatter and fall in with all the non sense of the zealots of the day — It may justly be suspected that his object is to throw things into confusion that he may ‘ride the storm and direct the whirlwind.’
