A VERY STABLE GENIUS: Theme and Variations (97 anagrams)

SATIRE COMPOSED: Giorgio Coniglio, January, 2020. 

BACKGROUND INFORMATION: Last week, an important book describing the administration of the White House under President Donald J. Trump was released for publication. The book, entitled "A Very Stable Genius", is the result of extensive reporting by two Pulitzer-prize winning journalists. The phrase used for the title derives from a description by the President himself of his own mental abilities.

ANAGRAMS:   Phrases composed by rearrangement of the 17 letters of the original.
In this case, the 17 letters of each new phrase must include:

     E E E
     A A 
     S S
     V R Y T B L G N I U. 
  The meaning of the resultant new phrases are, not surprisingly, sometimes in keeping with the tone suggested by the original title, but are often directly in opposition, and may even fly off and explore new tangents. They are best imagined, in this case, as further utterances by the book’s protagonist, as asides by the authors, or as comments by startled readers. 
 The editors have concocted innumerable possibilities, and selected almost 100 of the most intriguing anagrams for your enjoyment. Our experience suggests that the phrase “A VERY STABLE GENIUS” is a unique mother-lode for such wordplay; there are thousands of results, but most defy logical interpretation. If you discover additional examples that appeal to you, please indicate them in the ‘COMMENTS’ section.
