Trump (Page 2)
srbiddy09: @spd: Yes, it upsets me when a President acts like a Latin American dictator and tries to overthrow our government.
spdshftr69: oh like the one who stated that the amendments to the constitution are not absolute? The one telling people if you do what he says, he might let you have a bbq for 4th of July?
spdshftr69: Listen, you want to have a set of standards and laws but only apply them to scenarios that you upset you. Its a debate or conversation that never ends. You cant be rationale about anything, not facts, not laws, not evidence, not truth. And I do apologize for getting involved in this conversation tho.
One Writer's End of Term List: 10 Things I Now Hate Because of Trump
Like escalators and the color orange. They rank low on the list of his worst offenses, but they're forever tarnished by the 45th president.

Sorting through old papers, I’ll sometimes come across a note signed by my mother. She’s been dead 15 years and the sight of her signature triggers a rush of emotions. Autographs are more than scratches on paper. They are a legal representation of a person. For 50 years, I’ve viewed signatures on a scale that ranged from “necessary” to “heartwarming.” It never occurred to me that I could hate a signature.
I hate Donald Trump’s signature. I hate it aesthetically with the odd peak at the end that makes it seem like he’s signing his family’s original surname, “Drumpf.” I also hate the cruel bills and executive orders that he has signed to ban Muslims, roll back environmental protections, and protect Confederate monuments.
This anger extends beyond his signature. Trump has taught me to hate things that never seemed worthy of hatred, items like:
1. The number “45.” There are no photos of John F. Kennedy wearing a football jersey with the number 35. Historians and journalist sometimes use Bush 41 and Bush 43 to distinguish the two, but most presidents aren’t recognized by their sequential number. Still, Trump has embraced “45,” putting it on his golf hat and embroidering it on his cuffs. Many elevators skip the “13th floor” because it’s considered bad luck. In the future, we will skip from 44 to 46.

2: The color orange. Orange still doesn’t rhyme with any words, but it’s now synonymous with Trump whose nicknames include Agent Orange, the Mango Mussolini, the Cheeto in Charge, and Tangerine Jesus. Orange is now off-color forever. Sorry Howard Johnson’s. Sorry Princeton.
3. “Bring Your Daughter to Work Day.” Founded by the Ms. Foundation for Women, this day kicked off in 1993 and used to happen once a year in April. At the White House, every day is “Bring your daughter to work day” thanks to senior adviser and filler-enthusiast Ivanka Trump whose “work” drew eye rolls from world leaders and Christine Lagarde.

4. Words like “sir,” “hoax,” “sad,” and “huge.” How one man could ruin so many monosyllabic words is both sad and huge.
5. Phrases like “When you look at X…” or “When you think about it…” Trump uses these phrases as rhetorical tics, the filler between lies. I now cringe when I hear them. Even cliches that were already disliked—“It is what it is”—I now hate even more.
6. Escalators. Stairs. Ramps. Trump has issues with between-floor conveyances. He truly can make the most ordinary things seem weird.

Donald Trump ruined escalators when he announced his candidacy for the U.S. presidency at Trump Tower on June 16, 2015 in New York City.
7. Solar eclipses. I will always associate solar eclipses with Trump so it’s a good thing they don’t occur very often.
8. Mario Kart. In her book Full Disclosure, Stormy Daniels described Trump’s sexual apparatus: “It has a huge mushroom head. Like a toadstool… I lay there, annoyed that I was getting fucked by a guy with Yeti pubes and a dick like the mushroom character in Mario Kart.” If you can hear “Mario Kart” and not envision Trump’s penis, I am jealous.
9. True story: Trump ruined my friend Susie’s vagina. After Trump won in 2016, my friend Susie’s cervix spasmed and required medical attention. Susie wasn’t alone. In an article for The Cut, Emily Gould concludes her story about Gawker with a visit to the gynecologist. Gould explains she first felt pain in the area of her reproductive organs after watching Trump steamroll Hillary Clinton in a debate. The doctor responds, “Yeah, I’m seeing a lot of this lately. Women who haven’t had problems in years coming back in. People have all kinds of different reactions to trauma.”
10. Flushing twice. On the occasions when I have needed to flush a toilet twice, I never thought about it. Now that Trump regularly brings up bathrooms and the need for multiple flushes, I think of him as I watch the waste swirl into the sewer. To be fair, of all the associations, this one makes the most sense.

Ravens Flight: "srbiddy09: Trump has officially been out of office for two months now, yet..."
...yet you are choosing to continue to invest your limited time and energy into him... Why exactly? You could be thinking about literally anything right now from puppies to icecream to how bubble wrap is made, but yet... here you are, can't seem to get enough of bringing him up... From a psychological perspective I find this highly fascinating.

I may be slightly trolling, but I'm also pretty serious. I used to act homophobic until I finally just came out of the closet and embraced my sexuality. Usually if you hate something so deeply it's because you can relate to it somehow and are in denial, it's called psychiatric projection. I think you might have narcissistic personality disorder.
"When a narcissist tries to control your reputation and make you look bad what they are really struggling with is maybe you are a good person everyone will love and it’s them who brings out the worst in you. They don’t want to accept that."
Is that why Trump still has such a strong grip on your mind, that you can't let him go? You need to continually invest time into hating him to try to drown out what's really bothering you? I mean what other reason would someone have for making a thread like this, what goal or result are they hoping to achieve?
KeithJ: Biddy yep he is a troll and maybe he wants to change Dumpty trumpty's soiled adult diaper for some sudo sexual reason .
