The president is like a one-man game of Telephone: he hears information from wherever or whomever but when he repeats it back, the facts are thrown in the air and come down as surrealist jabberwocky.

Jabberwocky, defined as "meaningless speech or writing," was the title of a nonsense poem written by Lewis Carroll included in his 1871 novel Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There.
Carroll began writing the poem even before the novel's prequel, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, was published in 1865. "Jabberwocky" is noted for its lexicon of creative nonce words, including brillig, frabjous, and mimsy, which have no inherent meaning but invite fanciful interpretation from the contexts in which they appear ("O frabjous day!").
