I couldn’t resist sharing it here, as I love the name Dump Trump Dump Truck, and also think this would make a great T-shirt design, and a good idea for a toy truck too. If you are not a fan of the current US president, please share this amusing logo around, and let your friends see it. If you like Mr Trump, then I can only apologise. But I do love that name…
I have no real axe to grind in US politics. I would have disliked Clinton as much as Trump, I have no doubt. I didn’t care much for Obama, or for his predecessors either. But there are times when someone hits the spot, and this is one of them. As a foreigner, I try to stay neutral about American political leaders, at least most of the time. And as I don’t like any of them, that’s very easy for me to do.
This is a short post about something that is causing me some concern.
Ever since Donald Trump first came to my attention, I have been fascinated by his strange hairstyle. Not just the colours, which are interesting enough in themselves, but also the strange way that he styles it to disguise any baldness, and to achieve what he must believe is something attractive to behold.
To be honest, I did wonder that anyone could take a man with hair like that seriously, let alone elect him to the most important office in the world. Had I been an American voter in 2016, I would never have been able to get past that hair, whatever his policies. It would have been a case of a vote lost for want of a hairstyle, that’s for sure.
When he was elected, I felt sure that he would modify his coiffure, and appear with something more dignified, and better suited to his important role on the world stage. But no, he carried on with the intricate combing-over of hair that resembled soft straw, seemingly unaware of how it enabled him to be further mocked.
Last week, I was watching him being interviewed by a reporter. He sat forward excitedly in his chair, like a teenager making a point that was important to him. His answers were full of contradictions, and he really didn’t come up with a convincing reply to any of the probing questions. The news moved on to a different story, and I forgot about it after a while.
Sometime later that evening, it occurred to me that I hadn’t noticed the President’s hair. After his 100+ days in office, it seemed that I was actually becoming used to this clownish style, and beginning to accept it as perfectly normal.
Now THAT is worrying!
