I found this thread on twitter and I thought I would transcribe it here, because, well, it articulates very clearly how I feel about Cheeto and the monumental fuckery that the republicans unleashed upon America. 





"A few things spring to mind.

Trump lacks certain qualities which the British traditionally esteem.
For instance, he has no class, no charm, no coolness, no credibility, no compassion, no wit, no warmth, no wisdom, no subtlety, no sensitivity, no self-awareness, no humility,
no honour and no grace - all qualities, funnily enough, with which his predecessor Mr. Obama was generously blessed.

So for us, the stark contrast does rather throw Trump’s limitations into embarrassingly sharp relief.

Plus, we like a laugh. And while Trump may be laughable,
(4) he has never once said anything wry, witty or even faintly amusing - not once, ever.

I don’t say that rhetorically, I mean it quite literally: not once, not ever. And that fact is particularly disturbing to the British sensibility - for us, to lack humour is almost inhuman.
(5) But with Trump, it’s a fact. He doesn’t even seem to understand what a joke is - his idea of a joke is a crass comment, an illiterate insult, a casual act of cruelty.

Trump is a troll. And like all trolls, he is never funny and he never laughs; he only crows or jeers.
(6) And scarily, he doesn’t just talk in crude, witless insults - he actually thinks in them. His mind is a simple bot-like algorithm of petty prejudices and knee-jerk nastiness.

There is never any under-layer of irony, complexity, nuance or depth. It’s all surface.
(7) Some Americans might see this as refreshingly upfront.

Well, we don’t. We see it as having no inner world, no soul.

And in Britain we traditionally side with David, not Goliath. All our heroes are plucky underdogs: Robin Hood, Dick Whittington, Oliver Twist.
(8) Trump is neither plucky, nor an underdog. He is the exact opposite of that.

He’s not even a spoiled rich-boy, or a greedy fat-cat.

He’s more a fat white slug. A Jabba the Hutt of privilege.

And worse, he is that most unforgivable of all things to the British: a bully.
(9) That is, except when he is among bullies; then he suddenly transforms into a snivelling sidekick instead.

There are unspoken rules to this stuff - the Queensberry rules of basic decency - and he breaks them all. He punches downwards - which a gentleman should, would, could
(10) never do - and every blow he aims is below the belt. He particularly likes to kick the vulnerable or voiceless - and he kicks them when they are down.

So the fact that a significant minority - perhaps a third - of Americans look at what he does, listen to what he says, and
(11)then think 'Yeah, he seems like my kind of guy’ is a matter of some confusion and no little distress to British people, given that:
* Americans are supposed to be nicer than us, and mostly are.
* You don't need a particularly keen eye for detail to spot a few flaws
(12) in the man.

This last point is what especially confuses and dismays British people, and many other people too; his faults seem pretty bloody hard to miss.

After all, it’s impossible to read a single tweet, or hear him speak a sentence or two, without staring deep into the
(13) abyss. He turns being artless into an art form; he is a Picasso of pettiness; a Shakespeare of shit. His faults are fractal: even his flaws have flaws, and so on ad infinitum.

God knows there have always been stupid people in the world, and plenty of nasty people too. But
(14) rarely has stupidity been so nasty, or nastiness so stupid.

He makes Nixon look trustworthy and George W look smart.

In fact, if Frankenstein decided to make a monster assembled entirely from human flaws - he would make a Trump.

And a remorseful Doctor Frankenstein would
(15) clutch out big clumpfuls of hair and scream in anguish:

'My God… what… have… I… created?

If being a twat was a TV show, Trump would be the boxed set."
(16) In other words, from me, as an American, even in Alabama, @realDonaldTrump is an embarrassment to humanity."


Hahaha I despise anybody who defends Cheeto.

  1. Leave it to a Brit to sum up perfectly this man-child. He’s petty, uneducated and deceitful. This sums him up perfectly: “He’s more a fat white slug. A Jabba the Hutt of privilege.” No one in the free world respects him and more and more are losing hope that America can recover from this shit. And over the last few days he’s acting more and more like the dictator he wants to be. And the fucking Republican Party sits on their hands with Lindsey Graham his lap dog. Fucking disgusting.

    XOXO 👨‍❤️‍💋‍👨

  8. @bae: it’s all about privilege with Cheeto, that’s right.
    @jimmy: oh yes, love the supercilious, acerbic quality of their insults.
    @debra: there are some pretty awesome burns throughout. LoL
    @walter: you KNOW there’s always porn stars, dear Walter. Always.
    @steven: I know, right? I thought the whole thing was absolutely spot on.
    @dave: yes! Put Cheeto under the microscope and it is clear as day.
    @annemarie: the day Cheeto goes to prison should be a national holiday.
    @Maddie: yes! Somebody should read this to Cheeto while he eats his bucket of chicken. And let’s!

    XoXo
