1. Trump's limitations

This is a good piece of writing.

Trump's limitations are endless.

I still think that the fetal alcohol syndrome theory is correct. He exhibits the limited range of affect, he appears to have only fear and hatred in his emotional repertoire, and his cognitive and interpersonal dysfunctions are glaring and pervasive.

There also appears to be personality pathology, learning disabilities, and an inability to understand moral concepts.

7. Yeah, it gets posted every couple of months

... but it's good if you haven't read it before. Strange that the London Daily published it again with today's date and no attribution to the original.

9. so good

"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 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."

10. Don't ask me where Trump's head is at.

He can't sing.
He ain't pretty
and his ass is fat.



Seriously, I never understood the appeal about Trump. He has no charm. He's not witty. He doesn't sing or dance or play a musical instrument. He's not smart. The only thing funny about him is his clownish appearance.

Others here have posted links to earlier versions of this editorial. Try one of those.

14. I have seen this before but still good: He's more a fat white slug. A Jabba the Hutt of privilege

There is never any under-layer of irony, complexity, nuance or depth. It’s all surface. 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. 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.
