#ResistTrump narcissism trump

#ResistTrump today by treating him like the clown he is

Actually. the clown wig is an improvement over his regular weird combover

On CNN, Brit journalist Rob Crilly makes the case for mocking Trump mercilessly. In a post titled “It’s your duty to laugh at Donald Trump,” Crilly notes that

Humor is Kryptonite to [Trump’s] thin-skinned existence.

He is utterly impervious to the usual weapons of politics. Try to wound him with shame or embarrass him with public scrutiny and you may as well try to sink a duck by pouring a jug of H2O over its rear end.

But, Crilly notes, if you make a comment about his allegedly tiny hands (not that there’s anything actually wrong with tiny hands) Trump will lose it completely. And each time Alex Baldwin puts on orange makeup and a wig for Saturday Night Live, Trump watches the show and seethes.

Trump’s sensitivity is easily understood when you realize he is on a desperate quest to be taken seriously. Just remember the face he pulled when he sat beside Barack Obama in the Oval Office on that Thursday after an election. It was the sort of face a three-year-old exhibits when they really, really want you know they are concentrating. Or when they are trying to squeeze out a number two.

Pretty much.

Responding to [Trump] with ridicule is not un-American. It is not demeaning to the office of the President — for there is only one person in all of this who is demeaning the office of the President. …

It is not a sign that you have given up, that you are complacent or one of the winners. When you remember that all Trump craves is to be taken seriously, it turns out that laughing is your duty.

Humor has always been an effective tool against tyrants. And the utterly humorless Trump hates being mocked more than almost anyone in the world.

So make Trump jokes. Post dumb Trump memes. Never give him the respect he so desperately craves but does not deserve. It’ll make you feel better and Trump feel worse. Seriously.

I’m tempted to just start publishing a regular comic strip starring Trump being a buffoon for the next four years, but a) I’d be risking my career making fun of my Commander in Chief and b) he’ll already be making himself a buffoon every day he’s in the Oval Office.

As just a tiny little protest of my own, I will no longer capitalize trump’s name. Just my little way of showing just a bit of the contempt I feel for the “man”. Just a way of saying that I think so little of you, I won’t even put the effort into hitting the shift key when I type your name.

I miss those Trump statues, the ones that were fully nude and showed him with fewer inches than an ant.

We need to put up more of those in public places, get unflattering Trump images out in the open.

Let the little king wave his tiny flea sized fists.

I mean, I do get doing it just because it gets under his skin, but at the same time I hate to contribute to the insecure macho mentality making fun of people’s penis size promotes, not to mention the shaming of fat and elderly bodies.

Agree on feeling conflicted re making fun of penis size, body shape, etc.

Re the mocking strategy more generally, I think it was Sinkable John saying this on a few other threads lately, too? That Trump’s Achilles heel is his thin skin.
He (Trump, not John!) does seem to be all id, no ego & definitely no superego.

Let’s not decide the neatest condemnation of him is that in some alternate universe he has a body that might look both fat and trans, how about that.

Because that’s what you’re talking about, with the ~*~*~inches~*~*~.

I’d argue it’s what a plurality of you are talking about with the hands.

Well, that’s obviously what Rubio and Trump were talking about during the campaign. The hand reference actually came from some article a long time ago in which his hand size was mentioned in passing, but Trump blew up about it and turned it into a Thing. So when people In The Know talk about it, it’s specifically referencing his obsession with that article, even up to apparently until recently sending pictures of his hands to the writer with them circled, apparently to prove that they aren’t small.

Anyone who still thinks that the Don might have a sense of humour, even one that he just borrows for politeness’ sake on particular occasions, watch the first five minutes or so of the face set like stone and the steam from the ears when Seth Meyers gives him a taste of what public political life is about in the USA.

I still can’t believe this is going to happen but…in less than a month there will be an inaugural ceremony. I didn’t actually know until years later, when I saw the footage in one of Michael Moore’s movies, that GWB had to ride to the ceremony in a closed car because of the overwhelming angry protests, including egging the motorcade. I hope people are organising to express their outrage in a similar way, and I hope that if so it gets more coverage than the protests against GWB did at the time.

@Guest:

There’s been some delay on getting the permits for people to protest, unfortunately. If anyone knows any other, more recent updates, I’d be happy to hear them. But last I heard a few weeks ago, there were delays.

On the point of physical mockery of the Cheeto:

I’m a little hesitant about it, to be honest. His personality, words, and other things he can control already have all the appeal of a flaming litter box, so there’s plenty there. Further, it is those things he can control that are so fucking scary, I think mocking those things makes a better point about what an odious little man-child he is.

Quoting Mel Brooks seems appropriate here:

” Of course it is impossible to take revenge for 6 million murdered Jews. But by using the medium of comedy, we can try to rob Hitler of his posthumous power and myths. In doing so, we should remember that Hitler did have some talents. He was able to fool an entire population into letting him be their leader.”

I think it would be great if there were a large group of people at the inauguration who, just as a Trump finished taking the oath, began singing the National Anthem of the USSR. It would be a lovely middle finger the red-baiting Republicans who now back Trump whole-heartedly. Plus, while Trump’s too dim to realize that Russia doesn’t use that anthem anymore, he’d still know he was being insulted. It would also be the nicest bit of music in the whole farce.

Sadly, I have no idea how one would set something like that up.

I came up with a list of funny curses directed at the Orange One. Here are a few:

1. May the only Cabinet you ever assemble come from a discount furniture-store chain.
2. May taco trucks show up outside the White House for the next four years.
3. May Scottish people put your face on their golf balls.
4. May somebody play the Funeral March at your inauguration.
5. May Kim Jong-un mock your haircut.
6. May your namesake towers be demolished in order to build a mosque.

I was going for that outlandish “may the fleas of a thousand camels infest your armpits” vibe, but more specific in this case.

The man is a loser — he lost the popular vote by almost 3 million. Which is a far cry from the “landslide victory” he claims.

So I’m thinking that despite graduating from the fancy-schmancy University of Pennsylvania Wharton School of Business, he’s terrible at math.

As well as being a loser.

On the tiny hands thing, what’s funny to me isn’t the alleged tininess of his hands (who on earth cares? there’s nothing wrong with having tiny hands or tiny anything else) but just how mad it makes him.

1000% this. I’m not looking to mock him for having tiny hands (does he even? I do not care nearly enough about hand size to have ever noticed) or the implication that he has a tiny penis. I’m just want to mock the hell out of him for being so incredibly insecure he absolutely has to defend his dick size at all costs.

Mmmm, okay. How’s this? Ever notice how conveniently the word “Trump” rhymes with a large number of derogatory words? “Lump”, “mump”, “dump”, “rump”, “hump”, “grump”, “frump”, “chump”, “slump”, “plump”, “stump”…

Oh, I think we all noticed. Of course, making fun of someone’s name rhyming with something else is literally Kindergarten bully humor. On the other hand, it’s also probably the only humor Trump would understand.

Thank you, @Michael Brew.

I had to stick to my guns when it came to saying that size shaming was never appropriate even with an odious asshat like The Rump, even though mine was an unpopular opinion.
I worked with the geriatric population for close to 25 years as a CNA before going to the complete opposite end of the spectrum and working with pediatric patients as an LPN starting last year. There are a lot of elderly gentlemen who have bodies similar to those statues. To imply that it is a disgusting or laughable thing to have such a body is wrong.
I hate to break out this old chestnut, but two wrongs don’t make a right. The Rump is a horrid human being for his body shaming, particularly where women are concerned. However, it would be equally odious for me to ridicule his body type because he said bad things about mine.
Certainly, his actions give us a veritable bottomless Christmas stocking full of laugh (and cringe) worthy material.
I do agree with those who say that calling him a Cheeto gets a pass. He doesn’t have to put on the Deplorable Orange spray tan.

What is amazing is the amount of stuff there is to mock him about without size and/or body shaming. Thrumplethinskin makes it just too easy.

*mispelled tweets
* orange spray tan
* badly fit suits
* not knowing jack sh*t about anything

I think Elizabeth Warren and Clinton did the best job mocking him with his own words during the campaign. Just follow that strategy, and never call him president, just Donald.

mrmagnificent said much the same thing. Trump is rich enough to have a whole troupe of butlers, footmen, groomers, shoppers working for him. Surely someone could suggest that he get a personalised colour mix that suits him better and that no one else could ever have. (A bit like the Queen and her lipstick.)

A clever make up artist could ensure that the changeover wasn’t an overnight conversion from Mango Mussolini to Wally the Walnut. Changing the mix week by week for 8-10 weeks would be more or less imperceptible. It’d probably make old publicity shots look as though they’d been done on an old Polaroid.

It really shouldn’t be that hard for someone who knows their stuff to
a) get a better colour
b) apply it evenly and consistently.

Something that would really get his goat – massed protestors turning their backs on his motorcade. I was going to suggest mooning as well, but that’s probably going a bit too far.

On the “small hands” thing:
I’ve always enjoyed it as an illustration of Trump’s ridiculous sensitivity to the wrong interpretation of a damning insult.

It is now a running joke about his penis size only because he chose to make it one. Spy Magazine used to refer to him as a “short fingered vulgarian”, accurately invoking the “deep pockets, short arms” adage about wealthy people who are unwilling to spend their own money.

In other words, the insult was that he was a cheapskate misappropriator of other people’s money, with tacky personal taste to boot.

Since he couldn’t refute that, he spent the next 28 years defending his hand size, and linking it to his penis size, and the rest of the world started joining in.

I for one will continue to refer to him as ShortFingeredVulgarian Trump because I am implying nothing about his genitals or his hands when I say that.

Due to past events, I’m gonna mostly sit this discussion out. My heart has been softened.

One comment though: I don’t find penis size jokes funny at all, and I also think they’re very problematic for various reasons. However, I do believe Donald should #ReleaseTheDickPics

Just because the people deserve to know that he’s not lying.

I find the stubby-fingers thing hilarious because I also have stubby fingers and toes, relative to hand size; I always have little bits of glove sticking past the ends of my fingers, and toe socks are never gonna fit – my big toes approach circularity. Those are literally the only issues with the stubby digits. For a presumed adult, Trump really is hilariously sensitive to finger-length jokes.

Re the mocking strategy more generally, I think it was Sinkable John saying this on a few other threads lately, too? That Trump’s Achilles heel is his thin skin.

’twas indeed me. That came with my suggestion to petition the White House to have him release his birth certificate and prove he is neither a lovecraftian horror from the deep nor a poorly programmed robot planted by Putin to undermine the US.

His ego is definitely the best target. And mockery is one of the few things that even foreigners can do. Activism is tricky if you’re not a US citizen, but taunting Trump from across an ocean ? Heh.

Re : Body-shaming. I can’t think of a single context in which a penis size or fat joke can be justified. Any kind of body-shaming, really. And just because it’s him, doesn’t make it fair game. But by all means, please do make fun of the hair. The hair is fair game. It was through a conscious (if misguided) choice that he paid a fortune to make it look like a swamp monster immigrant made its nest on his head.

Just be careful not to stray into bald-shaming territory. That would kinda defeat the whole point. It’s not about why he’s got fake hair, it’s about how ridiculous (and ridiculously expensive) the fake hair is.

True, his hair piece is a great allegory for his business enterprise. He pays a huge sum on something that looks sketchy and ultimately fails while he insists it’s completely legit and pretends no one noticed.

I also am uncomfortable with fat-shaming, but I think it’s fair to point out the hypocrisy of his behavior and comments, including his own hypocrisy judging women’s bodies, considering his own size, and behavior (saying “she must have eaten a lot) while skoffing bacon cheeseburgers).

when it comes to body shaming & generally mocking trump, just ask yourself if you are also hurting his victims/innocents thereby*. If you are mocking his behaviors, ie his trying to censor the press from showing his neck, I think thats different.
(*ie men with micropenises already suffered enough, and it might not even be true anyway)

If I make a joke that wanders into actual body shaming (with the inherent splash damage) instead of just laughing at him for his unbelievably fragile masculine ego, I hope you all will call me out for it. That’s certainly not my intention.

epitome of incomprehensibility

How about some more Tweet-mocking?

The United Nations has such great potential but right now it is just a club for people to get together, talk and have a good time. So sad! (Trump, Dec. 26)

Getting together, talking, and having a good time are such sad things. So, so sad. And it’s really all the UN ever does. It’s just one big international party. Tragic.

The so-called “A” list celebrities are all wanting tixs to the inauguration, but look what they did for Hillary, NOTHING. I want the PEOPLE! (Dec. 22)

Celebrities are not people. Or, maybe they’re people, but they aren’t PEOPLE.

I met some really great Air Force GENERALS and Navy ADMIRALS today, talking about airplane capability and pricing. Very impressive people! (Dec. 21)

You’d think GENERALS and ADMIRALS would be PEOPLE, not just people.

Today there were terror attacks in Turkey, Switzerland and Germany – and it is only getting worse. The civilized world must change thinking! (Dec. 19)

Change thinking into what?

Well, we all did it, together! I hope the “MOVEMENT” fans will go to D.C. on Jan 20th for the swearing in. Let’s set the all time record! (Dec. 16)

I’m a fan of movement, but I didn’t know about the time record. How do you set it?
