Trump is the dogshiat in Pink Flamingos: He's there to shock and break norms, but is ostensibly an artificial  prop, yet it turns out he is acutal dogshait, and Divine (his base) still eats it up even after knowing he's actual dogshiat because it grosses everyone (liberals) out.

That's....unfortunately a pretty good analogy.  Harkens to the line 'a Trump supporter would literally eat shiat if it meant a liberal would have to smell it'

John Waters would be insulted if you compared him to Trump.

In Trump's case, I think Waters would use a bucket full of puss.

I don't know, John Waters can be hit or miss, but there's no doubt he has some talent.  Trump, OTOH...
 
2020-11-30 1:47:14 PM  
Nah...

John Waters is an intelligent, creative, self-made man, who reads, speaks in coherent sentences, and has a sense of humor... he's also not a corrupt sociopath.

Donald Trump is a piece of Shiate.


And John Waters is damn national treasure.

Hey now, I like John Waters.

Trump is an authoritarian wannabe with Swiss cheese for brains.

Next one won't be as dumb.

A great deal has already been written about Donald Trump's legacy by his detractors, nearly all of it hysterical and unfocused.

Seriously... WTF is wrong with Subby. You should even mention Waters in the same breath as T-t-t-t-t-twat.

Donald Trump isn't even the equal to some sticky gum on the bottom of John Waters' shoe. Trump is just David Duke with a better public image and a bit more media savvy.

"A great deal has already been written about Donald Trump's legacy by his detractors, nearly all of it hysterical and unfocused."


But first, let's poison the well in the first paragraph.  That's a great way to start a conversation or make your point.
 
2020-11-30 1:57:44 PM  
Trump is more like a john waters villain if anything. Deranged, disgusting, shiats himself on a regular basis. He probably keeps teenagers in his basement and farks chickens.
 
2020-11-30 1:58:25 PM  
One thing that surprises me is how little has been said by either side about the actual nature of Trump's appeal.

Are you kidding? They even made a song about it back in '87 or so:

This.  Adolf Hitler promoted a kind of German "camp" culture of traditional values even as he waged a world war and industrial scale murder of millions.
We have another word for "camp" when politics are involved.  It's called propaganda, not art.
Donald Trump is not, nor has ever been a successful businessman, father, or religious icon. He is a pathological liar that destroys everything he gets involved with and walks away from the damage, claiming victory.
The journalist should remind readers that #45 is responsible for some 300,000 American deaths.  He's almost at Robert E. Lee's record.
 
2020-11-30 1:58:41 PM  
That's a lot of hate on John Waters, Subby
 
2020-11-30 2:01:32 PM  
Trump wouldn't even be equivalent to John Water's freaking mustache. If John Water's mustache was located on John Water's taint.

Still way better
 
2020-11-30 2:02:11 PM  
Good god, that was one of the dumbest, most wanktastic articles I've ever seen.  There's the germ of an idea there (that Trump's entire image is a sham, an artificial caricature), but then it gets dressed up in a lot of mental masturbation about how the author, and the author alone, understands the true nature of Trump while literally everyone else on either side is a loud, uncultured swine.

And then, just when I thought the article reached peak stupidity, it comes out with this at the end:

It is still too early to say what historians (who only the day before yesterday were dismissing the now-beloved George W. Bush as a crypto-fascist) will ultimately make of the Trump presidency.

"The now-beloved George W. Bush"?  farking seriously?  Dude, just because Trump made him look good by comparison, doesn't mean anybody loves him or is nostalgic for him.
 
2020-11-30 2:04:28 PM  
I'd say he's more Ewe Boll than John Waters.  John Waters can make a point with a character eating dog poo.

Boll, like Trump, just flings dog poo everywhere.

It is safe to ignore the contents of TFA. There are three things that can be said to be certain in this world: death, taxes, and that Matthew Walther's take on anything is inane and worthless.

Yikes, this was a goddamned mess.  Unless you're queer or you're Susan Sontag, maybe it's best not to try to tackle camp.  And even the queer thing isn't guaranteed.

I would go so far as to argue that there is something inherently campy about fascism.  (TFA almost goes there, placing camp on the political right and associating it with Mussolini.)  It's why they come off as cartoonish supervillains.  But it doesn't make the danger they pose any less real.

For about 30% of Republicans, that article may be true.

The other 70% of Republicans who think the election was fraudulent? No, they think Trump is the Real Thing.
 
2020-11-30 2:57:47 PM  
Wrong. John Waters is successful.

The thing about camp esthetics is that some consumers just really like it thinking it is really good rather than exaggeratedly over the top, Many "pro" wrestling fans think it is real and don't claim to be watching it ironically.

I blame engineered Supernormal Stimuli - taking a perceptual cue and exaggerating it past anything (normally) found in nature in order to get an even bigger response.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superno​r​mal_stimulus

For example Playboy magazine never featured normal women but over time their models evolved to be
big-haired blond women with large fake tits (mostly indistinguishable from each other) because that is what their base found most stimulating.

And that is Trump's "type" of woman.

I stand by my assessment that Donald J Trump is the Christian Weston Chandler of Hitlers.

Both of them are dumb AF yet have huge egos about themselves.
Both of them sit around all day doing nothing.
Both of them burn through tons of money and have nothing to show for it.
Both of them have atrocious eating habits and diet.
Both of them have poop-in-the-pants issues.
Both of them believe they have magical powers that can make reality bend to their will.
Both of them only care about what they want. No one else matters.
Both of them hold decades-long grudges.
Both of them see other people as nothing but NPCs in a video game.
