I'm starting to develop a bit of Trump anxiety

My scarily-accurate representation of Donald Trump. The mouth should be bigger, though.

What if it happens? What if Donald Trump actually manages to brag and boast and bluster and blunder his way into the Oval Office in 2016? I think it could happen. I mean, under normal circumstances, blatantly insane "outsider" political candidates like this are brought down by their own scandals, public gaffes, and embarrassing statements. But what scandal could possibly derail the Donald's already scandal-besmirched life by this point? What hasn't he already done? And public gaffes and embarrassing statements are what he's all about. He feeds on them. The things which weaken other candidates actually make him stronger. He's like a Bizarro Superman who thrives on green Kryptonite. When I said recently that Trump could be the first person ironically elected to the presidency, I was only half-joking. I honestly think there are people who will vote for him just to see what would happen if he were elected. As if this great nation of ours were some kind of backyard science experiment!

Perhaps some humor will alleviate my Trump anxiety. In that spirit, I give you a video by a very talented editor named Dominic Nero. It is tastefully titled "Trump Dumps." If you have a strong stomach, enjoy.

  1. Ah, yes! Someone infinitely more talented than I did something with the whole "Trump Dumps!" YAY!

    As for winning the election, I've said it before, and I'll say it again: we're being TrumpTrolled. There's NO WAY that Trump's running anything if he wins. He'll be a figurehead, an infinitely worse X infinity figurehead than GWB. It's impossible to "win" against him--he's like a terrorist. How can you fight someone that's not afraid to die? It's the same thing with Trump--how can you fight against someone who's life has had sooo many yooge public blunders? Multiple baby mommas? CHECK. Questionable business acumen? CHECK. No ability whatsoever to demand even the least bit of respect from any world leaders? OH MY GOD CHECK.

    I was hoping that at least there'd be another Bush/Clinton battle for the White House, but somehow Trump trumped the PROFESSIONAL POLITICIANS. I don't know what that says about them, or what that says about the American people.

    Meh. I'm going to distract myself from the election by trying to link Ed Wood and the Three Stooges in six degrees or less.
