The Court Jester

(The) Court Jester: Long defunct, this official medieval position was revived by the Trump Administration soon after it took office in early 2017 under the name of White House Spokesperson. The move was initially met with bemusement which soon turned into shock, disbelief and despair. While the original intent behind this controversial institution was to amuse the king through recourse to buffoonery, the main task of the modern iteration lies in distracting the general public from the President's own buffoonery.
