Shakespeare knew about the likes of Trump

The context changes, but the line from one of his plays is as true today as it was about 500 years ago when he wrote it:

He is "... a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage and then is heard no more: it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing." Macbeth Quote (Act V, Scene V).
