Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

I call your Trump Sandwich and raise you a Trump doll, complete with flabby arse, ridiculous hair, saggy man-boobs, small hands, tiny pecker, and removable hairdo. And, of course, the customary smartphone from which to distribute his pearls of wisdom on twitter.





The kickstarter (which i assume started as a joke) had a target of $38,000. It is currently on $344,899, and there is still 16 days to go.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

That butt isn't flabby enough, or my imagination is wilder than reality. Time to check in at the local nudist beach.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

J2488, you've made my day with that post.

The 64 thousand dollar question though is - are people backing the Kickstarter because they hate him or love him?

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Photos of him getting into a plane when very windy and his jacket flapping clearly showed his bum is indeed MUCH bigger than that

Wish we didn't insist on mocking his (ridiculous) hair and looks though- but his ideas or lack of, his dreadful actions and so-called politicies. Same for May - why mix looks and 'policies' - what is the point.

Had an e-mail from my Trump voting cousin in the USA, replying to mine thanking her for my b-day present, and saying how so many of us in Europe are distrought and concerned about Trump, and here is part of her reply:

'Please try not to be so distrought about Trump. The press is so evil,
and it goes overseas as well. As a matter of fact, he has brought more
jobs to US soil in two months, but not enough yet to overturn the
disaster of Obama. Also the economy is getting better everyday. Don't
believe what you see o n TV. When we were at G's (other Swiss cousin) and saw the 1/2 hour
of English-speaking TV, I did not recognize our country! They slant
everything to their liberal agenda and a lot of it is just not true'

Just can't think how to reply- but OH and I have come to the conclusion it is just best not to reply at all. Sad - there will be no visit to the USA as planned.

Primacy is a fairly well documented effect in survey and form completion, and might have some impact on voter choice. It's not shite. it might have had an impact in some of the close races. Unfortunately, no way to prove it. Forms like this should always be randomized.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

I'll attack him on a great many issues, but not looks. He's a 70 year old geezer, age takes its toll.
When he was my age he was in better shape than I am now

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Lack of US presence at the UN may signal problems down the line. And no ambassador in Geneva yet.

Too busy tweeting criticism of the press to get on with the real work.

Did you actually read my comment? I said MIGHT. I have seen it myself in survey construction. So I was disagreeing with your shite assessment.

The most fiercely contested election in living memory. Never off the news, internet, daily conversation. Those that bothered to turn up to vote knew who they wanted to vote for. It's shoddy journalism, cannot be proven and unnecessarily anti-Trump. He was right not to invite them.

I didn't read it as trying to prove anything.

It's a theory, and all news outlets report them.

I would agree usually, but i am willing to make an exception for bigots who believe it is OK to judge others (especially women) in the same way.

People in glass houses should not throw stones, and old donny boy has thrown plenty of stones.

i see...so just because you dont agree with a particular editorial choice, you should treat them as persona non grata.

Free Press, indeed.

Well, it doesn't appear to be fake news, and is from a "One of the world's leading political scientists" so unlike the President's accusations, it is hardly shite...!

It is free. They can write what they want, and Trump can welcome into the White House who he wants.

How can Hannah Sander explain Trump winning the primary?

She is deluded. Like so many of the anti-Trump brigade.
