Does anyone know if there are terms in rhetoric for the kinds of structures illustrated below?

1. Birds of a feather gather no moss.

2. What's the difference between Donald Trump and a bee? One is fat, orange, likes to sting people and nobody wants it around. And the other is a bee.

Apparently there are 2 eponyms from Lord Dundreary. One is the Dundrearyism, and another are dundrearies, which are a particular style of facial hair.
