The showboat

[Warning: the following was written more than six hours ago and may no longer apply to whomever is now Anykindof President of the United States.]

A member of the federal government, known hereafter as the Performing President — seems more apt than Acting President, though of course I am not dealing here in the lingo of governance — has complained that another member of said federal government was “outside the realm of normal,” even “crazy.” According to the Performing President, said member had “something wrong” with him. He was, in fact, a “showboat.”

One might be tempted to cite this as an instance of pot and kettle, except that on one side we have a rather ordinary human being and on the other we have both pot and kettle.

If you are unsure who is named what by whom, I refer you here.
