    I also enjoy that, to this point, his platform would essentially be yelling at people to do what he wants. And call that tough negotiating.

  2. Franklin says:

    There’s a skill to using the f-word effectively and successfully. Trump doesn’t have it.

    “The F-bomb” is possibly the dumbest euphemism in the history of American usage. “F**k” is a word, not an explosive, and considering we all hear it and say it every day, can’t we all stop pretending to be delicate little flowers who need to be protected from it?

    Of course, the readers here are so delicate that a post using the actual word goes to moderation, hence the silly abreviation — is there a better word for substituting symbols for letters? It seems like there must be — above.

    So he called the Chinese muhfuhs.

    I wonder what would happen if voters chose him as president 😀

    Yeah, it’s gonna be T-Paw. Have fun with him.

    wr – It’s an explosion. You must not be doing it right.
