Many dynasties have their clowns. The infamous megalomaniacs Nero and Caligula for the Julio-Claudian dynasty, etc. Again, the words of WASP, album Golgotha:
You cheered ya'alls clown to king. . .
along with an ancient Hoseaic proverb,
Whoso sows the wind, shall reap the whirlwind.
The labor of nations is fuel for the fire.
Let us enjoy the whirlwind, dēmos. As we ride the mayhem together. The mad torrents of incompetent, raging ego.
