Over the last 4 years or so, Trump’s detractors (I am proud to be in that club) have been finding clever ways to portray the buffoon in the Oval Office. Graphic illustrations, cartoons and the like have been employed to amusing effect.
But finding the perfect animal.
Mother Nature’s contribution to this valiant effort…
Until now has not been effectively conveyed.
Something that contains just the right characteristics of the pompous ass prowling the White House for the last 3 years. It has to have exactly the right “feel”. And so I started with the prominent color. Orange. The color sprayed (?) onto our blustering blowhard on a daily (?) basis so he always looks like a withering, yet bloated tangerine. What in nature might have some of these features? A bird was my first thought. Lots of colorful birds on this planet that have stunning plumage. And plumage somehow is befitting a caricature of our prezidunce. Something that preens. Something that prances around showing off its plumage. Yes! This is a good start. And so it was that I happened upon the Andean Cock-of-the-Walk. It has all the perfect features (although I would have liked a more pronounced frontal prominence (KFC sponsored gut) but still… This is pretty close, don’t you think?
Ladies and Gentlemen here is …
<drum roll please>
The Andean Cock-of-the-Walk
(I could not have made up a better moniker)
Maybe I CAN come up with a better moniker!
Now Re-branded as:
The Tangerine CockWomble see this list
(noun) A person, usually male, prone to making outrageously stupid statements and/or inappropriate behaviour while generally having a very high opinion of their own wisdom and importance.
synonyms: fuckwit, shit-for-brains
…and here in all its glory is the Tangerine CockWomble
