Regarding the Statue of Liberty cartoon, I've heard of "beer goggles", but you'd need a "beer welding helmet" to sleep with Trump.

Perhaps an alternative would be the blind statue of justice (Lady Justice / Justitia)

Between his tiny man parts, and his giant waist, I'd suspect "is it in yet?" would be frequently muttered.

KIM TOLD TRUMP HE WAS TOO BUSY DEVELOPING BALLISTIC MISSILES TO HELP WITH BIDEN THING

 

PYONGYANG (The Borowitz Report)—Donald J. Trump asked Kim Jong Un to help dig up dirt on Joe Biden, but Kim said that he was “busy with rocket stuff", the North Korean dictator confirmed on Thursday.

 

“I remember getting a call from him in August,” Kim told reporters. “And I was, like, ‘Sorry, right now I'm super busy developing new ballistic missiles.’ ”

 

Kim recalled that Trump was very understanding and said he would “try some other countries.” 

 

"But I'm not sure why he called me, you know?", the North Korean leader went on. "I mean, digging up dirt isn't my field of expertise - I'm more into killing family members who piss me off. But he said he didn't need help with that. Not right now, anyway."

 

 





TRexit - Vote him out, drag him out, take him out: either way, he's gotta go.

Long read in The Atlantic. 30 pages, from George Conway, the husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway.

He criticized President Trump's "erratic behavior" and says Trump is "unfit to be president"

Unfit for Office

Donald Trump’s narcissism makes it impossible for him to carry out the duties of the presidency in the way the Constitution requires.

[Last two paragraphs]

...In short, now that the House of Representatives has embarked on an impeachment inquiry, one of the most important judgments it must make is whether any identified breaches of duty are likely to be repeated. And if a Senate trial comes to pass, that issue would become central as well to the decision to remove the president from office. That’s when Trump’s behavioral and psychological characteristics should—must—come into play. From the evidence, it appears that he simply can’t stop himself from putting his own interests above the nation’s. Any serious impeachment proceedings should consider not only the evidence and the substance of all impeachable offenses, but also the psychological factors that may be relevant to the motivations underlying those offenses. Congress should make extensive use of experts—psychologists and psychiatrists. Is Trump so narcissistic that he can’t help but use his office for his own personal ends? Is he so sociopathic that he can’t be trusted to follow, let alone faithfully execute, the law?

Congress should consider all this because that’s what the question of impeachment demands. But there’s another reason as well. The people have a right to know, and a need to see. Many people have watched all of Trump’s behavior, and they’ve drawn the obvious conclusion. They know something’s wrong, just as football fans knew that the downed quarterback had shattered his leg. Others have changed the channel, or looked away, or chosen to deny what they’ve seen. But if Congress does its job and presents the evidence, those who are in denial won’t be able to ignore the problem any longer. Not only because of the evidence itself, but because Donald Trump will respond in pathological ways—and in doing so, he’ll prove the points against him in ways almost no one will be able to ignore.

Shoot Migrants’ Legs, Build Alligator Moat: Behind Trump’s Ideas for Border

New York Times By Michael D. Shear and Julie Hirschfeld Davis

The Oval Office meeting this past March began, as so many had, with President Trump fuming about migrants. But this time he had a solution. As White House advisers listened astonished, he ordered them to shut down the entire 2,000-mile border with Mexico — by noon the next day.

The advisers feared the president’s edict would trap American tourists in Mexico, strand children at schools on both sides of the border and create an economic meltdown in two countries. Yet they also knew how much the president’s zeal to stop immigration had sent him lurching for solutions, one more extreme than the next.

Privately, the president had often talked about fortifying a border wall with a water-filled trench, stocked with snakes or alligators, prompting aides to seek a cost estimate. He wanted the wall electrified, with spikes on top that could pierce human flesh. After publicly suggesting that soldiers shoot migrants if they threw rocks, the president backed off when his staff told him that was illegal. But later in a meeting, aides recalled, he suggested that they shoot migrants in the legs to slow them down. That’s not allowed either, they told him.

...In the Oval Office that March afternoon, a 30-minute meeting extended to more than two hours as Mr. Trump’s team tried desperately to placate him.

“You are making me look like an idiot!” Mr. Trump shouted, adding in a profanity, as multiple officials in the room described it. “I ran on this. It’s my issue.”

...Mr. Trump had routinely berated Ms. Nielsen as ineffective and, worse — at least in his mind — not tough-looking enough. “Lou Dobbs hates you, Ann Coulter hates you, you’re making me look bad,” Mr. Trump would tell her, referring to the Fox Business Network host and the conservative commentator.

Ms. Nielsen ... tried again to reason with him.

We can close the border, she told the president, but it’s not going to fix anything. People will still be permitted to claim asylum.

But Mr. Trump was unmoved. Even Mr. Kushner, who had developed relationships with Mexican officials and now sided with Ms. Nielsen, could not get through to him.

“All you care about is your friends in Mexico,” the president snapped, according to people in the room. “I’ve had it. I want it done at noon tomorrow.”

...When Ms. Nielsen tried to get him to focus on something other than the border, the president grew impatient. During a briefing on the need for new legal authority to take down drones, Mr. Trump cut her off midsentence.

“Kirstjen, you didn’t hear me the first time, honey,” Mr. Trump said, according to two people familiar with the conversation. “Shoot ’em down. Sweetheart, just shoot ’em out of the sky, O.K.?”

Trump twitter archive is a great resource.

 

If you're using a PC, then you don't need to have a twitter account to browse his tweets.  On mobile without installing the app and using your browser, it'll sometimes fail to load and pester you to use the app, select "use desktop mode" in Chrome etc sorts that.

 

Over 41,000 tweets archived since 2009.

 

51 tweets so far today (Oct 3 in US).  Not sure if that's a record, but the more deranged he's becoming - the more he tweets.

 

There's a tweet for every moment in history:
