Today I received the request below about "dumpster fire"  but don't have an answer.
Would someone else perhaps be able to help?

Hi Gerald,
 
I'm a Books and Culture writer at HuffPost, and I'm working on an article about the phrase "dumpster fire" and its rather sudden ubiquity as an insult. I'm interested in speaking to lexicographers like yourself who might have some insight on its rise to popularity. 
 
Please let me know if you'd be interested in speaking to me for the article; I'd love to hear your thoughts! 
 
Best,
Claire
