"Resolute Desk Total Landscaping" is one of the best I've seen.

I think what makes this stand out is tacking the seal on there. No other pictures of presidents using that desk have it. Sticking the seal on it overwhelms the history and gravitas of the desk and makes it look comical. Very Trumpian result to be sure.

I'm thinking use the tilt-shift effect on the original. Not that the original isn't already 'shopped.

Hmmm...for a guy who's been all-in on image since he was a young turd, he's really terrible at optics. I'm starting to think he may not be that bright.
 
2020-11-27 12:20:41 PM  
Hehe. He looks like he's sitting at the kiddie table.
 
2020-11-27 12:20:57 PM  
Y'know, it probably wouldn't be getting nearly the same traction if not for that goofy seal that so obviously doesn't belong there.

YEAAAAAH....the only other possibility is someone actually looked at that and said, "that's good".

He's just playing 4D chess to get Section 230 shoved through.

Totally using Twitter against them and outmaneuvering the libs.

He's just that smart. A genius, if you will.

Along with this we should make sure we don"t keep #diaperdon trending he is blowing fuses over it.

Yep, just highlighting how insecure he is about having lost. "I'm still Pwesident!!"  He even lashed out at one of the reporters with 'I'm the Presdient, how dare you?'
 
2020-11-27 12:28:37 PM  
the scary thing is that there an actual bizarre reasoning into why they would use this particular set-up.  They are so blinded to the optics they wanted to convey, that couldn't fathom any other optics being viewed.  This, I'm sure, was solely from the one with the bestest vision...

I'm wondering just how Pawnee-ish that mural behind him is, actually.  Might need to consider a January project of "Hand VP Harris a spray gun and a pair of paintin' chucks."  But maybe I'm wrong.

Politics aside, I cannot *wait* to have a functional admin with talented employees willing to work hard for a president who respects their expertise and abilities.  No one with *any* talent has been willing to work for Dipshiat Donnie The No Good, No Taste, Contractor-Stiffing Asswipe for decades.

It will be deeply refreshing, and depressing that it is, simultaneously.

What's hilarious (aside from desk), is his lash out at Twitter: like he has the slightest f***ing idea of what's tending and what is not, and/or why. He just knows that he don't like #DiaperDon.😅

One of the twitter threads had pictures of Obama at the same desk with the seal (not to say that someone wouldn't have photoshopped it on to make Trump seem less ridiculous).  The main difference though is that Obama was surrounded by people so that the desk isn't that noticable.  Trump on the otherhand...

I predict he is going to a fake presidential seal made up to put on podiums and desks when he is out of office and have some "I'm still president" cosplay thing going on.

I predict he carves "I WON" on the resolute desk.

I wonder how much he sold the other desk for...Crazy Don's "Going Out of Business" Sale...everything must go...ever want to sleep in the Lincoln Bedroom?  Now you can own the whole furniture set!  Need a Pardon? Make us offer!  State Secrets?  We got em!  Tired of those old Treaties? Everything must go!  Business need to strip mine or drill on Federally protected Land? Last chance!

What gets me is the flags in front of a fireplace and the chandeliers. You know he insisted on having them in the shot.

I love how triggered he got at the female reporter doing her job that he had to scream "RESPECT MAH AUTHORITEE!!" like the petulant little child he is.

The chair is also totally wrong -- it's a lounge chair rather than a proper chair for a writing desk. from the side you can see his knees are bunched up, and it puts his elbows below the level of the desk. totally makes him look like he's at grandma's card table with the cousins.

I hope he does, because unauthorized use, especially for commercial purposes, of the presidential seal is illegal.

I was actually a little depressed after the election when I realized that now we could deal with all of our real problems instead of Trump's self-created and made up fantasy problems.

There are many moments that should have ended any support from one or more constituencies... you'd think "make AF1 a particularly obvious target from the ground" would have at least led to loud objection from anyone even vaguely interested in the military, security, etc, but no.

Good times.

Just another anecdote revealing how mindbogglingly stupid and self absorbed he is, and now we're bumping up on 270,000 dead Americans and 300,000+ by Xmas.  Thanks, MAGAts.

It might be a bit like how I imagine getting proper medication for some flavors of mental illness might be... "Shiat, now the noise is gone.  This is boring / sad / startlingly clarity into the world / holy shiat look how farked everything is / etc."

Come to think of it, it might be worth reading up on precisely that before it gets here.

Gonna get quiet and calm and cold-light-of-day *real* fast, I fear.

Somebody got fired today.  Probably somebody that had nothing to do with the decision to stick the tiny desk in front of him.  But, it's Trump so it can't be HIS fault.
 
2020-11-27 12:49:54 PM  
So as a canadian I have to ask, what's the deal with the tiny desk?
