No joke.

All Trump gas is pitting one group against another.

Well we've done that, so he has no playbook left.

He is built like a 1955 Zenith Television.

No, those were attractive and sturdy.

Honestly he wasn't built for any time. There is no scenario in which he isn't a failed president
 
2020-06-01 11:15:40 AM  
He wasn't built for much more than sitting on his fat ass ordering servants by way of titles like "boy!" and "you there!" to get him Big Macs and KFC and raging at unflattering news pieces about him and spending his every other waking moment plotting endless revenge scenarios at those who wrote said unflattering things while viciously berating his servants for the most inconsequential breaches of duty, regardless of whether said breaches were even part of their duties.

Well, that and copious amounts of "throne time."  I'm pretty sure his entire backside has permanent indentations of a toilet seat.

He's much more suited for the corporate world, where everybody has to kiss his ass or get fired.  This "separation of powers" thing, and having to be President for even the people who didn't vote for him, is just not the sort of thing he's suited for under the best of circumstances.

This is why the Obvious tag exists.
 
2020-06-01 11:44:15 AM  
He was built to rape underage girls.
Well come to think of it he's not even built for that.
He's so fat he squashes them.
 
2020-06-01 11:44:24 AM  
Careful.. the Obvious tag might blow a fuse on this one.
 
2020-06-01 11:44:25 AM  
Trump has repeatedly been asked how he can best bring Americans together. In each instance, he responded as if he didn't understand the question.

His entire political career was predicated on sowing division and hoping anger would unite a group dumb enough to give him power. When the only thing you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.
 
2020-06-01 11:45:07 AM  
Trump wasn't built for pants without elastic, sharp eating utensils, or non-velcro shoes.

That worked pretty well for his reality show. The only job where that skill is even an asset.

Trump wasn't built, he was allowed to fester.
 
2020-06-01 11:48:34 AM  
What time was he built for?
 
2020-06-01 11:48:35 AM  
No, this is *exactly* what he was built for.

Distract from his abject failures
Divide the US into us vs. them
Stoke division
Give permission for the worst elements of America to come out and play
Blame everyone else for the chaos

This is what he *wants*- a simple narrative of the glorious keepers of "order" fighting against the hordes of "those people" who don't know their place and are so ungrateful to his glorious leadership
 
2020-06-01 11:49:02 AM  
Trump creates times like this. He cannot be President without bringing about disaster and dividing people.

Do you know someone who still uses one of those? Apparently for aesthetically pleasing structural purposes?

Trump promised chaos.  Now he has chaos.

But the problem with chaos is that you can never predict the outcome.

Trump is wholly ill equipped for any aspect of the Presidency.  He sucks at the "easy" bits and is dangerously inept at the stuff that requires actual effort much less these times when there's an actual crisis.
 
2020-06-01 11:50:46 AM  
The president has no intention of bridging divides or healing wounds, and he doesn't see the point of pretending otherwise.

Well, yeah, he's not the president of the USA, he's the president of American conservatives and supranational businessmen. He doesn't give two shiats about anyone else. As long as he keeps those two groups happy, he has the votes and the money to keep the train rolling another four years.
 
2020-06-01 11:51:01 AM  
Trump wasn't built to serve anything or anyone other than himself.

If you couldn't figure that out in 2016 you never will, and I would like to sell you a bridge on some lovely swamp land that you owning would surely piss off the libs.

Ishkur: What time was he built for?


The French Revolution would have been a wonderful place for him...
 
2020-06-01 11:52:11 AM  
Was he ever suited to anything else other than being a mealy-mouthed shiatheel?

He can't run a business, everything he touches turns rotten and dies. He's the epitome of privilege, wants everything but can't figure out how to do shiat without it being done in the most broken ways possible. 

Hides in his Bunker when his fee fees get hurt / gets scared of actual consequence / has zero cohesion.

He's a series of racist, fascist buzzwords being cock-puppeted around by McConnell and Putin. He's a meal ticket for Bastards.

Donald Trump is the enemy of the people.
 
2020-06-01 11:53:20 AM  
Divide and agitate is his only move.  I have no doubt Trump is jerking off furiously to this, as it may give him the opportunity to declare call the Democratic Party the political arm of the Terrorist Organization Antifa.
 
2020-06-01 11:53:28 AM  
"Public servant" is probably the single worst job title for Donald Trump. He hates the public and exists solely to serve himself, and expects those around him to do the same.
 
2020-06-01 11:53:32 AM  
No farking shiat. I'm not sure what time would have been appropriate for him. The only thing that's allowed him to survive this long is that he was born rich and had a massive head start. If he had to live on his wits...well....rats would have eaten him by now.

Trump is built more like a 1955 "TV tray" table.

- trying to look way more impressive that they actually are
- looks like they will handle way more than they actually can
- will collapse as soon as any real pressure is put upon them
 
2020-06-01 11:53:35 AM  
Trump was built for better refrigeration. He looks like a county fair butter sculpture gone bad.

the only thing Trump was built for was cloggin toilets and arterial shunts.

kazrak: He's much more suited for the corporate world, where everybody has to kiss his ass or get fired.  This "separation of powers" thing, and having to be President for even the people who didn't vote for him, is just not the sort of thing he's suited for under the best of circumstances.


He would do terribly in the corporate world. There he would be accountable to directors and shareholders. The only place his shtick works is in the thin slice of reality where he owns his own business so that he truly has no responsibility to anyone.

/that, and the playground

That's  a little unfair. He seems quite well-suited for meal time, nap time, 'executive time' and serving time. They seem a better fit than his actual suits.

Pretty sure this was typo, but sometimes a typo says it better.

If we had a working EPA, Trump gas would be heavily regulated and not allowed into the atmosphere.

He probably would have been a decent robber baron, since the lag time with communication would have allowed his underbosses to actually get stuff done before he could screw everything up with his insanity. Although, he probably would have died of untreated syphillis before turning 30.

Yep.

He's a "businessman" insulated from the realities actual businessmen face.

The biggest worry for a lot of people was that an external crisis would hit while shiathitler was president.

There's been *one*, and thankfully it wasn't orchestrated by another power, unless you count multiple levels of international leadership shiatting the bed in the name of austerity.  Hey who needs pandemic funding and strategies?

Now there's inevitable domestic trouble and the guy has absolutely crumpled like a wet paper bag.  This dude wanted to think of himself as a "wartime president"?  He can't even face protests without hiding and shutting off the lights.
