Trump’s window… is sinking

This nice malaphor was spotted in the PowerPost section of the Washington Post:


“– Trump’s window to score early legislative victories is sinking as Congress’s summer recess nears — giving the president just two months to revive his health-care and tax efforts before lawmakers depart Capitol Hill for a long break.”

Here’s the source:

It is a mashup of “a window of opportunity is closing” (a brief time period in which an opportunity exists) and “ship is sinking (or sinking ship)” (a failed or floundering organization or entity).  Sinking windows is never a good thing.  A big thank you to Barry Eigen for seeing this one and sending it in!

    Personally, I assume they’re referring to the sun quickly sinking in the west.
    But I guess it’s 6 of one, half a glass of the other!
