The eye of the beholder

Filed under: Amusement,Formalities,Future,Peace — bitchontheblog @ 17:27

I wish Trump were easier on the eye. It wouldn’t make anything better but at least I wouldn’t feel vaguely repulsed every time (which is all the time) I am forced to set eye on the man. Also, he needs a stylist. That thumb touching forefinger forming a circle aka hole does nothing for his allure. Only to repulse further by echoing the shape of his permanently open (and round) mouth. It was therefore with some glee when I came across mention of some fossil. All mouth, no anus.

I recently mentioned somewhere that America’s then-just-about-to-become First Lady looked like a rabbit caught in the headlight. This was, naturally, as is her wont, immediately being taken as a criticism of Melania by someone who – a few moons ago – managed to take a mega dislike to me which isn’t as remarkable as it sounds. The person in question doesn’t appear to like anyone much, not even herself. Fact is, Melania did look like a rabbit caught in the headlight during the inauguration. Pays to pay attention to body language. And what do you know: It’s now all on youtube. No wonder the boy, Barron, looked excruciatingly awkward too.

That Trump has (supposedly) small hands is not his fault or doing. So, STOP going on about it. Having said that, and no use denying it, there is and always has been folklore about what people’s features say about them. For instance, my father warned me about men whose earlobes are not well defined. Can’t remember what it meant. But it wasn’t good. Then there are the thick necked. Which, whilst not particularly attractive, does, for obvious reasons, come in handy if you aspire to become a professional wrestler. What else? Hair. Hair is a matter of pride. And you may joke about the hamster on Trump’s head but what would he look like if he let his scalp go commando? Mussolini?

Other than that I am confident that Angela Merkel will not hold hands with Trump. Unlike Theresa May (with an ‘h’ omitted by the current administration).

And, just now, “the US president has expressed no desire to speak in Westminster Hall, or another venue within parliament.” You don’t say. What an opportunity to miss to make a complete ass of himself. AGAIN. As long as he slurps his tea with the Queen and assures her that he’ll make America GREAT, AGAIN, all will be fine.

Mind you, the Angel pointed out and, as much as it pains me, he is right that whatever Trump’s shortcomings may be he sure has shaken the world and woken even those given to political inertia. If that’s Trump’s only legacy it’ll be swell.




  1. And it’s only been two weeks and a couple of days. Seems longer, but my uncle’s birthday was the 20th (inauguration day) and mine is EXACTLY two weeks later, which was this last Friday.

    More is coming, I’m sure. For worse or for better.

  2. Melania is the unhappiest looking First Lady I have yet to see. And I’ve lived long. Beyond pretending anyway which must be the slide to despair.
    I knew a man like Trump. Worked for him. Couldn’t read but self made billionaire. I did write about him after he died.

  3. It is always fun to see smug people squirm. Was just observing that the likely new first dog is not an official breed.

  4. It will be a good test to see if the idea of checks and balances still works. We do live in historic times.

  5. Third try to comment here – we elected this clown. We deserve what we are getting. Not sure the rest of you (the world) do butthat is just the way it is. Trump.Bannon are like David Copperfield – the crazy stuff is a giang misdirection. The trick is to figure out what is really going on. Bannon is ready for war – literally.

  6. U, don’t trample on the boy. His lineage he simply can’t do anything about. Aw families good or bad, are just ours. There are observations from his father DT who has questioned the connection between vaccines and autism? In circles around Manhattan, whispers of the wide spectrum of autism are the culprit. It would explain not up rooting the young man so quickly. His Mother adores him. Children are off limits. Human kindness will make this world seem not so big.

    • Hold your horses. I didn’t “trample on the boy”. I am the mother of a son myself. And as such my sympathies lie entirely with Barron who shouldn’t have been put “on show” which even for a non autistic child constitutes an ordeal – not least when your father is Donald Trump. I can’t even begin to imagine what a foaming at the mouth father he must be. And remember when Trump turned to his wife, judging by how her face fell, giving her a dressing down documented on cameras round the world? I don’t normally advocate putting distance between fathers and sons. In this case I’ll make an exception and hope Barron’s mother will stand her ground.

      • Thank you for your explanation.
