A college drama club is staging a performance to parody Donald Trump and his administration. At first, they thought of a debate format but concluded that it would require too much lying to defend the pro side. No one wanted to play that role. Instead, they decided on a Trump administration chorus line in which each student steps forward with a different parody. Here are the four parodies.

Nancy steps forward from the chorus line: Donald Trump on filling and not filling domestic and international positions in the government.

How many jobs? Five hundred? Too many. And they all get paid? I can use that money for my wall.

But Mr. President, problems are flaring up all over the globe and we need diplomats to address them. We have 32 embassies with no ambassadors.

Just tell me what the issues are and I'll come up with the answers. Remember, I'm a genius, a very stable genius. In fact, my I.Q. is one of the highest. And what do you need to know to deal with those sh*t holes? We can save a lot of money...the wall, the wall, that's more important. The bad hombres are invading.

Mr. President, some of the issues are potentially explosive. It's urgent that they be defused.

I'm the greatest defuser. Just let me know what the problems are and I'll do great defusing, really great defusing. You've never seen a greater defuser. And if I don't have time I'll send Jared. He'll be available in a few months after he solves the Middle East crisis. Maybe even sooner.

But, Mr. President, you must fill some positions immediately. We urgently need a head of the Transportation Department.

OK, Transportation Department? Yes, very important. Cars are important. I love cars. I use one on my golf courses all the time.

That's a cart, sir.
