In an interview with the Reuters news agency, Trump said he would prefer a world free of nuclear weapons but otherwise the United States should be “at the top of the pack.” The remarks came as Trump prepared to address the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). http://www.cnn.com/2017/02/24/politics/trump-interview-nuclear-weapons/index.html
This is a nice congruent conflation of “top of the heap” and “leader of the pack”, both meaning to be the best in a group. I am looking forward to a treasure trove of malaphors for the next four years. A big thanks to Frank King for spotting this one and sending it in!
