TR rode horses.  Trump is full of horse manure.

TR's moustache could kick Trump's ass six ways from Sunday.
 
2020-08-09 4:00:45 PM  
I was expecting something from Kevin Gannon, but this'll do.

TR also enjoyed roughing it in the wilderness and outdoors, so much so the Amazon nearly killed him.

Trump won't walk more than50 feet on pavement.
 
2020-08-09 4:05:39 PM  
TR spoke softly and carried a big stick.

Trump whines incoherently and carries a tiny mushroom.
 
2020-08-09 4:10:48 PM  
Having said all that, if you think Trump is anti-Latino . . .

Teddy Roosevelt got shot and while bleeding gave an 84 minute speech with the bullet still lodged in his chest.

/he also stopped the mob from killing the man, then calmly asked him why he did it.

[South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem] likened him to Theodore Roosevelt, a leader who "braves the dangers of the arena..." Link (NY Times, possible paywall).

That was the quote I used juxtaposed with the photo of Trump holding up the Bible after his stroll from the White House.

TR could speak English in full sentences, read.
 
2020-08-09 4:40:09 PM  
Teddy Roosevelt trekked through the goddamn Amazon on an uncharted river and it almost killed him .

A dangerous trek for Trump is a ramp.

It can't be stressed enough: Theodore Roosevelt was everything that Donnie is not.
 
2020-08-09 6:52:46 PM  
Teddy Roosevelt said "Bully!"

dumpy just is one.

Trump has the doughy physicality of Taft, the paranoia of Nixon, the muleheaded disregard for human life of Jackson, the deeply racist convictions of Wilson, the mile-wide vicious streak of Andrew Johnson, the corrupt underpinnings of Harding, the treasonous instincts of post-presidency Tyler, the criminal indecisiveness of Buchanan, the growing dementia of late-period Reagan, and an egomaniacal narcissism and pathological need to destroy the truth that is all his own.
 
2020-08-09 7:07:26 PM  
Teddy came up with his own volunteer regiment for the Spanish-American War. Donny couldn't make it past cadet training.

TR was Not a Piece of Shiate

Well, there IS a valid comparison. Both were bipedal humanoid beings. Roosevelt was human, we're not sure about Trump, though.

But Trump lifted a small glass of water with one hand, and then finished his speech!

Like a horse could carry his fat ass.

No, Trump stands alone. He will, until there's worse, go down as the worst, incomparable to any before him.
 
2020-08-09 7:27:30 PM  
Teddy Roosevelt was a sickly child who exercised and worked to become active, energetic and healthy.

TR read on average a book a day. Donnie can't be bothered to read anything.

you have got to be sh*tting us. There's no comparison.

It's as if someone was insisting that a lump of dog vomit was equivalent to a bar of gold.

Pornstars get tested every two weeks.

Trump has probably never been tested.

Kristi Nowm isn't very bright.
 
2020-08-09 7:30:54 PM  
TR created parks, Trump shrank them.  TR believed in education, Trump loves stupidity.  TR was physically fit. Trump got winded walking down a ramp. TR taxed the wealthiest.  Trump prefers to tax the poor.

Yoinked.

Death could not take Trump awake, because death would have had a whining crying baby and he didn't want to deal with that shiat.
 
2020-08-09 7:34:41 PM  
Who even thought this would be a legitimate comparison? It's like comparing a 12-gauge shotgun and a cheeseburger. Not a valid comparison on any other level beyond the fact that both exist.

Trump is the Nero of the US.
He golfs while his people die.

And the poor guidance of Bush II.

Roosevelt was shot while giving a speech. After checking himself out, he continued the speech.

Comparing the brass balls on that man to Rump doesn't even parse.

Both shotguns and cheeseburgers have their uses. The Flim Flam Führer doesn't.
 
2020-08-09 7:43:54 PM  
Well, both like riding bareback, but I have a feeling they wouldn't agree on what that means.

RooseveltTed: To folks recently comparing Trump to Teddy Roosevelt. TR did not like those who dodged their military duty, hid in bunkers at the first sight of danger, and eschewed science. I doubt he'd appreciate being compared to a man who does all three. Also it's absurd.


He also REALLY loved the environment because of his love of hunting.
 
2020-08-09 7:44:51 PM  
Teddy had a strong moral compass. He believed all men should get a fair shake.

There is no comparison between the 2.

Teddy farking Roosevelt had a zoo at the WH.

https://www.nps.gov/thrb/learn/histor​y​culture/the-roosevelt-pets.htm

And instead of a horse in the hospital his kids put a horse in the elevator to cheer up a sibling.

President Roosevelt loved the pets as much as his children did. Algonquin was so beloved that when the President's son Archie was sick in bed, his brothers Kermit and Quentin brought the pony up to his room in the elevator. But Algonquin was so captivated by his own reflection in the elevator mirror that it was hard to get him out!

No way Bunkie can ever top that.

The ads for those things are so inane I swear they are made by a Democrat who wants to steal Trumpniks money.
