"Pile of asterisks" has a ring to it.

But shouldn't it be something more like
*
**
***

Interesting. Originally, I had the word “bull” followed by 4 “*”. The auto censor took that and somehow came up with 12 “*”.

"Bull feces", OTOH, seems to be quite acceptable.

Acceptable maybe, but not strong enough. The only thing weaker is Trump himself.

Early on, I kind of liked “Alleged billionaire Donald Trump.”

Then I considered “serial bankrupter” but that was awkward, so I went with Bankrupteur.

But now that 2020 is here something much, much harsher is required.

I wonder if the suggestions given in the thread so far can be ranked according to harshness. You might find several are already above your threshold.

Meanwhile, here's some proposals from the OP. Who knows? Maybe one of them already meets your requirement:

"Traitor" seems pretty harsh. What with treason being a capital crime and all. Are you looking for something even harsher than that?

I don't understand why you should have. I thought our instructions were to just type stuff out and let the autocensor do its job. It isn't like anything is being done to try to evade it.

Apparently I was evading the censor by typing "feces" instead of "****".

There are so many different words which describe the same things. Some of them considered profane or obscene, many of them commonly acceptable in daily conversation or even in clinical descriptions.

"Feces" as a descriptive noun fits neatly in both of the latter two groups.

How are we to know where the line is drawn without allowing the autocensor to do it for us?

The fact that it wasn't censored automatically and that you took no unusual steps to evade the autocensor means that you operated clearly and well within the rules.

They should have given autocensor the yellow card.

Yes, but Traitor Don is so much more.

He loves telling stories about how someone comes to him and says “Mr. President here is a problem only you can fix.” Referring to him as Don would be infuriating to him and amusing to many of his critics.

There was no ambiguity. I understood exactly what you were saying.

That's why I suggested looking at what else has been put forward in the thread, to see if any of them met your requirements for something harsher.

"Traitor", for example. Does that meet your requirements?

I often wonder how closely President Trump's inner life matches the inner life imagined by his critics. It seems to me that he thrives on the conflict, enjoys the give-and-take of name-calling, and sees the abuse as evidence of his successful trolling. He certainly doesn't seem demoralized by it. Are you tired of all the winning? Because Trump isn't tired yet.

Then there's the wildly aspirational aspect of this name-calling. The magnificently unearned confidence of it. Maybe if the entire White House press corps started prefacing their questions with "Don...", it might get under his skin.* But I think we can all agree that what goes on in this thread has no bearing on that.

This leaves "... amusing to his many critics." Which really means "amusing to a few people on this forum." Which okay, it tickles your funny bone. And that brings me back to wondering about Trump's inner life. It seems like this thread has nothing to do with Trump's inner life, and everything to do with the inner lives of the people designing these clever epithets. Kind of like how The West Wing was a comforting parallel universe for progressives during the Bush Administration.

I have seen no evidence that Trump enjoys the give and take of name calling. Only the give. He does not appear to be demoralized by retorts, but I would not bet that this is due to anything more than his apparent ability to dismiss criticism as the work of wreckers, and his apparent ability to believe his own lies. I see more malice than enjoyment.

Speculation about his inner life presumes that there is something to speculate about.

Speculation about his inner life has been put forward repeatedly in this thread and others to explain the value of verbally abusing him.

I've lost track of the number of times some bit of abuse has been celebrated because it's really getting to him inside. Or some program of abuse is advocated because it's clearly going to make him upset inside.

I think he is more affected than he shows. He is remarkably and notoriously thin skinned, petty and vengeful. He got owned by Obama at the WH Correspondents' Dinner and his anger is almost palpable in the video. It's been claimed that dinner is when he decided to run for POTUS.

Quote:
But on April 30, the tables were turned. Trump was the recipient of President Obama’s jokes at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner — and Trump political adviser Roger Stone tells FRONTLINE in The Choice 2016 that the dinner was a turning point for Trump.

“I think that is the night he resolves to run for president,” Stone says in the opening scene of FRONTLINE’s two-hour documentary on Trump and Clinton, which premieres on Tues., Sept. 27 at 9 p.m. EST/8 p.m. CST on PBS stations nationwide.

“I think that he is kind of motivated by it: ‘Maybe I’ll just run. Maybe I’ll show them all,’” Stone adds.
Quote:
“Donald dreads humiliation and he dreads shame, and this is why he often attempts to humiliate and shame other people,” author Michael D’Antonio tells FRONTLINE. “This is a burning, personal need that he has to redeem himself from being humiliated by the first black president,” D’Antonio adds in the final moment of the film’s opening sequence.

Are you sure about that bit? I thought Trump advocated programs of abuse because they clearly made him happy inside.

Maybe The One Thing That Will End Trump is if Barack Obama makes fun of him some more. Where is the National Hero when we need him most? Is he short on material? Has anyone considered telling him about all the pith and wit put forth in this thread?
