An artist put Trump quotes on sexist 1950s ads and the results are brilliant

In a Presidential debate last year, he said “nobody respects women more than I do”, which, if true, is a terrifying prospect. But while there are plenty of *gross* Trumpisms on record, they haven’t ever been showcased quite like this. Saint Hoax, a “pseudonymous Syrian artist, satirist and sociopolitical activist” (as described on his website), is known for manipulating images and icons to highlight ugly truths.

In this case, the ugly truth is that the current President of the United States is a rampant chauvinist. By juxtaposing Trump’s words with 1950s memorabilia, Saint Hoax brilliantly highlights just how dated and backwards his worldview is. Take a look a the series, cleverly titled, ‘Making America Misogynistic Again’ (All image credits to Saint Hoax): You might WILL also like this video! Donald Trump's Hair Finally Surrenders To The Wind, And Twitter Loses It. Umm . . . it was already reported that Trump eavesdrops on guest telephone calls at Mar-A-Lago. The latest story about Trump’s twitter rant that President Obama tried to wire-tap Trump’s telephone is just too much and too perfect.

Umm . . . it was already reported that Trump eavesdrops on guest telephone calls at Mar-A-Lago.

But . . . given the weirdness of this outburst . . . we shouldn't ignore that previous reporting indicated that Donald Trump long has had a scheme and habit of secretly listening in to the telephone calls of guests and staff at Mar-A-Lago. Here is a June 2016 Vanity Fair article on the subject: Trump allegedly eavesdropped on conversations between staff members and possibly guests at the Palm Beach resort, BuzzFeed News reported Thursday. Citing four anonymous sources, the outlet reveals that club staff members were aware of—and warned that—the real-estate mogul would listen in on calls made using Mar-A-Lago landlines during the mid-2000s.

Kristen Stewart Mocks Trump’s Obsession with Her on SNL: ‘The President Tweeted About Me Eleven Times’

“I’m a little nervous to be hosting because I know that the president’s probably watching and, um, I don’t think he likes me that much. Here’s how I know.” That’s how Kristen Stewart, the gifted star of Adventureland and Clouds of Sils Maria, opened her monologue for Saturday Night Live. The 26-year-old actress was, of course, addressing President Donald Trump’s completely bizarre obsession with her much-ballyhooed breakup from her Twilight costar, Robert Pattinson. A Timeline Of Trump’s Relationship With The Press.

The words in that debate mattered, as did their delivery. Donald Trump interrupted Hillary Clinton 18 times (compared to 51 interruptions in the first debate). His reply to the moderator Anderson Cooper’s question about his videotaped boasts of grabbing women by the pussy, which had been released a few days earlier, was: ‘But it’s locker room talk, and it’s one of those things.

I will knock the hell out of Isis … And we should get on to much more important things and much bigger things.’ Then he promised to ‘make America safe again’ – but not from him. But words were secondary to actions. Trump is patriarchy unbuttoned, paunchy, in a baggy suit, with his hair oozing and his lips flapping and his face squinching into clownish expressions of mockery and rage and self-congratulation.

Here is everything that Trump has called ‘overrated’ Beneath Trump’s Mockery of a Reporter, a Cascade of Lies Leading Back to 9/11. Donald Trump, the serial liar who will be sworn in as President of the United States next week, lied once again on Monday, rejecting the actress Meryl Streep’s condemnation of him for impersonating a reporter’s physical disability on the campaign trail last year by insisting that he had done no such thing.

Beneath Trump’s Mockery of a Reporter, a Cascade of Lies Leading Back to 9/11

“For the 100th time,” Trump wrote on Twitter, “I never ‘mocked’ a disabled reporter (would never do that) but simply showed him… ‘groveling’ when he totally changed a 16 year old story that he had written in order to make me look bad.” Trump’s Twitter spats and false claims are by now so routine that it can seem pointless to even report them, but this one is worth unpacking, because it reveals a cascade of lies leading back to a false claim that helped him win: the fantasy that Arab-Americans in New Jersey had openly celebrated the September 11, 2001 attack on the World Trade Center as it took place.

A short (fingered) history of Donald Trump’s feud with Graydon Carter

(Don Emmert/AFP/Getty Images) Donald Trump has a busy Friday. He has a big briefing with “intelligence” officials, he has “Apprentice” ratings to tweet about, and he has a deliciously intriguing meeting with journalist Graydon Carter. You might not recognize Carter's name, but you are surely familiar with his work — or, at least, the result of it. Carter is (indirectly) the reason Trump felt compelled to tell the world during a Republican primary debate that there is “no problem” with the size of a certain appendage. You see, Carter is the one who — more than three decades ago — started this whole thing about Trump having tiny hands. Text analysis of Trump's tweets confirms he writes only the (angrier) Android half.

By the time Donald Trump becomes president in a few, desperately shortening weeks, he will already have made falsehood a U.S. goal.

Donald Trump’s War Against Facts

Trump does not lie to cover up the truth; he lies to deny the possibility that such a thing even exists. His feints and reversals are the essence of his belief system; he espouses a philosophy of bullshit. Until now, those habitual falsehoods have been the idiosyncrasies of a private citizen with no real responsibility toward anyone but himself. Once he takes the oath, his style becomes policy. We will have to get used to a president who dismisses the intelligence apparatus he commands, who denies events that took place on live television, who does not care whether he is caught in an obvious contradiction. The term propaganda comes from the Latin phrase denoting a 17-century committee of cardinals charged with spreading — propagating — the faith.

Trump, on the other hand, has stripped his public utterances of coherence, let alone ideology.

That is the way business has been done at the Trump Organization, a relatively small company with a big reach and a bigger self-image that has come under intense scrutiny as its chief prepares to become president of the United States.

With extensive entanglements around the world, many packaged in a network of licensing agreements and limited liability companies, the Trump Organization poses a raft of potential conflicts of interest for a president-elect who has long exerted such control over his company that, as he told The New York Times in a recent interview, he is the one who signs the checks. “I like to sign checks so I know what is going on,” he explained. Mr. Trump — owner of all but the smallest sliver of the privately held company — has said that, while the law does not require it, he is formulating plans to remove himself and his older daughter, Ivanka, from the company’s operations. Mitt Romney and Donald Trump Battle for Handshake Supremacy. It’s well known that Donald Trump, a germaphobe, doesn’t like shaking hands.

Someone Keeps Face Swapping Donald Trump With The British Queen. Donald Trump's Recount Tweetstorm and Corruption in Politics. While the shebeen was closed for the holidays, there was no lack of frenzied insanity among the staffers of Camp Runamuck down in Manhattan.

Owner of a Mexican cement company expressed his desire to provide cement for the US President-elect’s effort to secure the border between the two countries from the onslaught of rife organized crime. Kristian Rouz – “I will build a great, great wall on our southern border, and I will make Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words,” US President-elect Donald Trump used to reiterate night after night when on his electoral campaigning trail during the past several months. His pledge appears to be coming true somewhat: a Mexican-based cement producer has announced its plans to assist the next US President in his effort to secure the southern border of the United States from the trafficking of drugs, humans and weapons, currently rampant in the entire border region, from San Diego in California, to Corpus Christi in Texas.

Enrique Escalante, CEO and the owner of Grupo Cementos de Chihuahua (GCC), has expressed his willingness to participate in Trump’s endeavour to build the border wall. Source. Jared Kushner's Role in Donald Trump's Presidential Campaign - What Will Jared Kushner's White House Role Be? Trump stood up to speak after Charles, and he floundered miserably. According to one guest, he "gave the most pathetic, lame, embarrassing speech I've heard in a long time.

" People often talk about the Kushner brothers using similar adjectives: handsome, humble, diligent, polite, intelligent, and so forth.
