On October 23, 2016, Lionel of the United States (LOTUS) announces his independent write-in candidacy to be the 45th President of the United States (POTUS). Be a part of the #LOTUS4POTUS revolution. The #LIONELECTIONS! He promises to provide via the magic of raucous (out)spoken word and the immaculate twang of bluegrass a thorough dissection of issues that plague and concern our noble republic. Think Mort Sahl meets Ted Talks. Think Dick Gregory meets Irving R. Levine. Or, think what legendary record producer Jerry Wexler wrote of his friend Lionel: “He wears the mantle of Lenny Bruce, with Lenny’s own tropisms.” And no higher praise exists. Appearing with LOTUS will be his bluegrass trio Lock ‘n Load, with the inimitable and ineffable Bob Harris, flatpicker extraordinaire, and banjo master Bob Sutor. This information was leaked deliberately for your personal reference and enjoyment without the assistance of foreign espionage.

Netflix Season 4: Episode 11: Chapter 50
Lionel, as talk show host, interviews FLOTUS Claire Underwood (Robin Wright) as to POTUS Frank and FU2016.
Lionel is “[a]n intellectual known for his irreverent political and social humor.” (Newsweek)
“He wears the mantle of Lenny Bruce, with Lenny’s own tropisms: The Oblique, The Irreverent, The Tangential, The Concupiscent, The Polymorphous Perverse, The Arcane, The Numinous. And yet Lionel brings to the table his own savory: A love of the mother tongue and a gonzo vocabulary that puts his logo on all his works, whether talk-show hosting, standup-comic spritzing, or hanging out – with himself a minor art form.” (Jerry Wexler)
Lionel is an Emmy® Award winner and is fond of speaking of himself in the third person.
