What Disease or Symptom Would You Name After Trump?

Name COVID Vaccine 'The Trump' To Cheer Him Up - Geraldo Rivera Fox News pundit Geraldo Rivera knows just how to cheer up the 74-year-old man baby in the White House after his election loss to the man he calls the worst ...

  Details   DMCA

Geraldo Rivera proposes naming the Covid-19 after Trump to make the sad man-boy feel better. There's the germ of an idea there, but I don't think he has it quite right. Better to name the disease after him, like, as some have said, the Trumpidemic. Or maybe pick a manifestation of the disease or a symptom, like projectively coughing up sputum or mucus. You could say the person was Trumping.

Or maybe if someone has a cytokine storm, they could be "trumped up."

Of course it doesn't have to be tied directly to Covid-19. Instead of saying a person has a fecal impaction (they are literally full of sh*t,) one could say that the person is trumping or has a Trumpaction.

But no, I think there are better ones out there. Put your head to this fun excercise and share what your imagination stirs up.

Love this! Mine probably doesn't technically meet the specs., but I can't resist. Maaaaybe it would qualify as a symptom.

Trump (noun) 1. Severe defecation marked by extraordinarily objectionable qualities/characteristics; nastiest ever; like no one's ever seen; people say there's never been more odorous

Ex. God, what was in that burrito? Two minutes till I launch a serious trump.

I voted for Trump only b/c I see him as the lesser of two evils. See my 11/18 article here about what is in store for America and the world with warrior Biden at the helm.

My nickname for Obama was Obomba. My choice of a disease moniker for all but the 2 prez who died in office after only a month or so would be "DEATH.". They have all been surrogate murderers and international war criminals. Biden was exactly that as a VP and he will be it I guarantee as Prez.

Concern for war being waged by Biden against other countries is nice. Disregard for Trump's war against the U.S. is frightening. If Attila the Hun was the alternative then Trump might be the lesser of two evils.

"Concern for war being waged by Biden against other countries is nice. Disregard for Trump's war against the U.S. is frightening." And there you have it. . . all neatly packaged - the me generartion's self-indulgent, degenerative moral priorities on display. Concern for tax suppoorted annhilation of sovereign nations of POC like Libya is "nice." But it's more improtant to rant, rave and be "freightened" over the obscene personality of Trump, whose domestic policies were in reality an improvement over the last two neoliberal criminals to reside in the White House.

The democrat lynch mob, on the verge of having their warlord in power, is one step away from the edge of madness. By Valentine's Day bombs will be raining down on Syria and the two perverse chief executives will be scrambling around in the war room like Homer Simpson at the controls of a nuclear submarine out of its depth.

"nice," as in table stakes; taken for granted. Jesus.

Yes, trump's domestic policies were a big improvement if you are a billionaire who wants to keep more for yourself, or a xenophobic nationalist who would cry like a baby if they saw the prices trump's protectionist trade would result in, or a white nationalist who would like to legalize lynchings, or you loathe the idea of health insurance for poor people, or you think toxic pollutants improve the quality of rivers and wetlands, or you think religion class should replace science class, or you're in favor of launching pre-emptive missile strikes on Iran* or any of a thousand other insane ideas. But if you don't fall into one of those categories, they were a "hot mess inside a dumpster fire inside a train wreck." Pick any Democrat out of a hat for infinite improvement.

And it's self-indulgent and degenerative to be frightened at the prospect of Trump's success in bringing fascism to the U.S. Dude, you have a very odd worldview.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I just finished a very large meal so I must beg my leave to go drop a giant trump.

*right, not domestic policy.

I guess it's not your fault. You're just repeating the MSM fantasies that've been leaking into your consciousness. "[T]rump's domestic policies were a big improvement if you are a billionaire." I guess that's why 71M mostly rural poor voted for him and why the billionaire donor class, yuppie metrosexuals and Chardonnay moms voted for Biden. Or are the Trump voters all just dumb, racist deplorables? You also have the economics backwards in your machinations over protectionsit trade policy. It's free trade policy that has gutted the economy for the working class. And ultimately you'll be wrong about the damage to the environment, too. The devastating result of US free trade policy is that it has been a level one contributor to the damage to the world's (there's that word again) environment through destruction of agrarian infrastucture and the resultant effects on ecosystems. Read The Shock Doctrine as a homework assignment to learn more.

In the meantime prepare yourself for a massive letdown: Q'anon militias gone wild and a redneck zombie apocalypse are not happening. They were just more fearmongering illusions, Stephen. There were 35 Proud Boys at their last rally and 75 cops guarding them. You kow, same as it ever was. Nor is Trump going to be emperor or morph into Hitler like you were also led to believe. If he had the slightest inclination to impose fascism, he would have had a military enforced lockdwn like Viktor Orban did in Hungary. Trump did the opposite. He also had every opportunity to strike against Iran and demurred. It's why MIC wants him out. Get it? You've bought into the make-believe agitprop the ruling class has been dishing out for decades. Detox yourself, you can lick hysteria if you just try. Trump's evil, but the LOTE. https://youtu.be/GLMdLsLC5AE Hopefully you'll vote Green next time or stay home.

A majority of the 71M are fools taken by a con. Behind closed doors, even trump can't believe the idiocy of his crowds. Billionaires, yuppies and chardonnay moms voted for Biden because they clearly saw what a fraud and wretched man trump is and are smart enough to heap scorn on his ridiculous BS.

On free trade, your argument cuts against your apparent concern for the people of the "world." Is the working class in the U.S. entitled to blue collar jobs simply because they are not Asian or African? Should Americans reach deeper into their pockets to buy stuff so the working class doesn't have to strive for higher value add jobs, despite access to an education most Asians and Africans could only dream of? I don't disagree U.S. trade policy should require universal environmental and labor standards.

There are two things stopping Trump from killing our democracy and naming himself ruler for life. 1. Enough Americans are still paying attention. 2. The man is a f***ing moron, to quote Rex Tillerson and many others. Trump is too stupid to take over a garage sale, let alone a nation. Some say he's smart because he pulled off this big con on the American people in 2016. I say you don't have to be that smart to pull the wool over the eyes of enough Republican dimwits to win the electoral college.

All voting Green does is make it easier for the corrupt, morally bankrupt Republican Party to take over Washington, at least until we have RCV.

Your concern that my critical thinking skills are inadequate to inoculation against propaganda is endearing, but we disagree which of us has fallen victim.

Pollution kills, and Trump allowed greater amounts of air pollution with disregard to a likely increased death total due to additional pollution of thousands per year in USA. His response to Covid-19 has likely led to many tens of thousands of deaths. The war metaphor is not about obscene personality.

After a quick review, I believe you are correct about Garfield. He was a supporter for imperial expansion (and likely continued the genocide of native Americans by starvation and disease), but did nothing major during his Presidency that I found. As to William Henry Harrison, while did very little in office, he was a genocider before that and even made that the key part of his best remembered campaign slogan.

There is a pattern of thinking that has been around for a very long time time that goes something like this: if one wishes a world-view to be true, it is true despite any facts, and one is free of any legal or moral responsibility because wishing something is true (without checking the facts) is sincere belief. This is somewhat awkward phrasing, and incomplete, but I hope readers get my point.

The US Covid-19 situation has had little effect on creating this world-view, but it has made it far more blatant in terms of its effect on contemporary USA. (This world-view within USA has had far greater effects elsewhere in foreign wars, and in the past within USA regarding the genocide of Native Americans and slavery and subsequent subjugating of African Americans (with a terminology caveat on USAn versus American).)

This pattern, I shall call it a syndrome, is not limited to Trump. It describes the vast majority of his supporters, but also very many USAns who are not his supporters. I note it is very common elsewhere in the world, but seems to most widespread in USA. Why do so many beneath the top 10% economically vote for candidates that are their economic enemies?

Faith is a good word for this, because historically religious faith combined with formal religion uniting with government has been a major component of this phenomenon, likely the biggest one when it comes to impact on society. In a public relations sense, this is not a good term, because not everyone who believes in a religion believes their religion has a right to impose their beliefs on others.

I suggest we call this Trumpist Syndrome.

Are we still arguing over the lesser of two evils? That is the state of the union. Biden is a terrible consolation prize. He personifies everything that created Trump: wars, bank bailouts, foreclosures, TPP, neoliberalism, crony capitalism, austerity, medicare for some, fracking, corruption, domestic spying, torture, prosecution of whistleblowers, censorship, biosecurity state, deportations, prison industry, children in cages,,,

Every time I read one of these posts assailing Democrats, I want to ask: Have you forgotten about a little enterprise called the Republican Party? Are you aware that they hold a large majority of the elected offices in the U.S.? Are you aware that, on every single item on your list, they are at least a hundred times worse than Democrats?

Democrats didn't create trump. Decades of inflaming racism, xenophobia and crazy religious fairy tales amongst dimwits by Republican politicians who actually cared about nothing except chopping taxes for their masters is what created trump. Lie long enough to the cluelesss and even they get restless.

As another point of view, did the Dems offer an alternative to Trump that was noticeably different? They did not, and there real alternative was Bernie Sanders, whose campaign was destroyed by the top of the Dem Party. Dems did not create Trump; despite or because of Trump's obvious flaws; they nominated a candidate who wars far worse in expected war deaths per year. Except for the nuclear war issue, of course: Biden was for the truly evil status quo, Trump sufficiently ambiguous to let the generals and admirals run the show, and WW3 a high possibility of a WW3 Holocaust being far greater than what actually haooened.

I disagree. There is no comparison between Democrats and Republicans today. Republicans have sold their last shred of integrity and abdicated all duty of responsibility to the offices they hold as they double and triple down on appeals to voters' worst impulses in a downward spiraling vicious cycle of wretchedness sown and harvested. Whether it's waging war or control of nukes or painting parking lot stripes, today's Republicans deserve the trust and confidence of no one.

The DNC had it in for Bernie in 2016 and its leadership paid the price. There was no "top of the party" that took him out in 2020. More Dems thought a moderate had a better chance to beat trump. It didn't help Bernie and Buttigieg that their support among African Americans was soft and if they don't vote in high numbers in the general, the Democrat loses. Finally, while young people showed up at Bernie rallies like they were keggers, their turnout in the primaries didn't break through the conventional wisdom that they don't vote on election day. He needed them to win and too many of them had better things to do, evidently. By the way, he was my first choice in 2016 and I believe he would have beaten trump.
