This has got to be the silliest thing I've ever seen, but whatever.
You enter the command dnf remove dnf, and guess what?  It removes dnf.
You enter the command dnf remove kernel, and guess what, it removes
the kernel.  What a concept, it does what you tell it to do.

Not withstanding the fact that:
1.  You have to be in root mode to invoke
2.  It lists everything it is going to do, and you have to explicitly say YES.

So we're spending valuable developer time on things like this, when
there are certainly more important things that need attention.  Just
