That wasn't even a dad dance. That was the dance of a person who has never felt joy in their entire life. A person who has never felt or been loved. A child who was spurned by his parents. "Monster" I name thee, Fred Trump. "Criminal" I name thee, Fred Trump.

He has retained the most move in his stuck in the 1980s dance repertoire, "The Privileged White Boy On Coke, Lip Bite."  The only thing that could make it more authentic would be if he could tie a pastel sweater around his waist or shoulders while doing it.

Dancing involves movement of the feet.

The President is on drugs.

Truly.

Marcus Aurelius: Dancing involves movement of the feet.


Yeah, was gonna say does it really qualify as dance without actual foot movement?

If he ever actually does The Chicken Dance I will immediately switch into "Well, that's enough internet for today" mode cos I am only human and do have my limits.

Wait, rallies, plural? He's done that weird upper-body jerking-gyrating thing more than once? Jesus.
 
2020-10-22 11:52:02 AM  
I'm sure they're weaning him off the meth as slowly as possible, so can he dance to Huey Lewis and the News "I want a new drug?"
 
2020-10-22 11:52:24 AM  
It's entirely possible he was gleefully stepping on ants. This seems more "in step" with the Trump I know.

He looks like a dork but that's hardly what makes him a national embarrassment.

He would probably fall off those heel lifts and do a faceplant if he picked those diminutive little hooves up.

In somebody with a soul it would be a humanizing and endearing bit of self-effacement.

That was the quintessential 'old lame white guy' dance. As such, it could actually help him with his base.

Says the Village People are fine with him using the music. My guess is it's because they see how much of a fool he's making of himself and they're fine with that.

He says he's going to give us the post-event preview of the post-view himself.

"Since our music is not being used for a specific endorsement, the President's use is "perfect(ly)" legal," they wrote on Facebook in February. "Like millions of Village People fans worldwide, the President and his supporters have shown a genuine like for our music. Our music is all-inclusive and certainly everyone is entitled to do the YMCA dance, regardless of their political affiliation. Having said that," they added, "we certainly don't endorse his use as we'd prefer our music be kept out of politics.'Wow, there's a whole lot of milque in that toast.

How does Trump's drug dancing stack up to Yeltsin's drunk dancing?

I read this in Gene Wilder's voice.

Now people are embarrased?

He's been defining national embarrassment down for 3 1/2 years.

Another 1,200 people died of coronavirus yesterday. I'd say that's slightly more embarrassing than an old man who can't dance.
 
2020-10-22 12:02:03 PM  
O nailed the Rev Al Green when he got the chance.

Just another thing he is better at than Trump.
 
2020-10-22 12:02:23 PM  
I sure he thinks that he looks like a tough guy boxing when he does that.
 
2020-10-22 12:02:42 PM  
I still don't understand why "YMCA" is the song they chose....

Or slam to "Slam" by Onyx.

When he does that stupid fist-pump thing, I imagine two invisible wankers in his hands.

shiat.
He's gonna win now, isn't he.
This dancing shiat is what makes the olds smile and remember when their lives were great in America.
It's so stupid it's brilliant.

They also were cool with the US Navy using their song "In the Navy" IIRC

Cuz the songs are about the buttsex

It's like if Trump started drawing dickbutt everywhere and they asked the creator of dickbutt if he cared and the creator said something like "who DOESN'T love a little dickbutt? We are totally cool with President using our dickbutt as his own dickbutt"

Y'know what, whatever.

So now it's his dancing that is a national embarrassment? I thought it was everything else he does.

Are you suggesting he's incapable of embarrassing us in more ways than one simultaneously?

Pfft.  Libs just can't accept that he's good at anything, when really you're just jealous because he's the best at farking up everything.

He's going to do three solid months of these rallies when he loses just to make himself feel better, isn't he?

And before anyone says that's a good thing, keep in mind that leaves Pence and Kushner in charge to do do whatever they want.

Probably the same guy that picked Fortunate Son


Or "Sympathy for the Devil".

He also plays Village People's "Macho Man" at his rallies. It's beyond parody.

I have a new song for him to try.
