Nice word. Or at least, new word, cool.

But sorry, entirely inappropriate for the orange grotesquerie. Chump doesn't have a spiritual aspect at all.

Just call him 'sloth'. Although that's an insult to sloths.

Stump.

As in, he stumps away. As he seems to be doing now. (And will, hopefully, continue to, as opposed to somehow mustering up the energy for one last protracted mad grotesque dance over these last few weeks.)

"Carrots"

Two years ago Trump gave a speech when pardoning a turkey named Carrots. Now that's him.
Quote:
“Unfortunately, Carrots refused to concede and demanded a recount, and we’re still fighting with Carrots,” he said. “I will tell you we’ve come to a conclusion. Carrots, I’m sorry to tell you the result did not change.”

Well, someone finally hit on one that got under his skin. #DiaperDon

https://twitter.com/NumbersMuncher/s...89709670506496

He's having a temper tantrum about it and demanding that Section 230 be "immediately terminated!!!" for National Security.

When President Obama was in office, not a week went by when #DiaperDon didnít criticize the president. It was patriotic back then. But now making fun of a president is a national security risk.

So, how long to we have to keep saying there is no evidence of a mental disorder?

And I donít think #DiaperDon will never understand the Streisand effect weíll enough to apply it in a useful manner.

I never would have heard about this trend if President Chucklehead hadnít let everyone know how annoyed he was.

I think I would rather see him as a contestant. He could certainly stand to lose some weight, and I would love to see the trainer abusing him as he make a pathetic attempt to exercise.

The P-resident. (Still wondering if that tape is ever going to come out. No point now!)
