So, help me out here. I just heard my bagger Mother-in-law refer to TRUMP as a "handsome devil."

Now, she's 75 and therefore maybe lusting after a younger man, but what can ANYONE possibly like about TRUMP's looks. I was so flabbergasted I couldn't even respond. I mean, she's half right of course, but handsome? Really?

and thinks he's a substantial devil?

2.
(of a number, sum of money, or margin) substantial.
"elected by a handsome majority"

14. :) Sorry. Maybe younger generations should

get a forum going. A big one, with lots of subforums for specific problems. They're going to need it, and no doubt many families already have a strict practice of never mentioning politics around grandpa.

"Help! We've tried everything, but our mom won't stop hissing "Hillary" and "BO" all the time the TV's on or whenever we have friends over. She's gained 15 pounds from positive reinforcement treats, and they only work while she's gumming them. Not even even the squirting her in the face with water thing (yes, I know, but we're desperate!) and putting her in time-out. What can we do?"

At least yours isn't senile. Smile and give her a hug any time she doesn't mention politics.

when he was not hefty like he is now.

but now he's revolting with his ridiculous hair and his lumpy pudding orange face with white bags around the eyes. He is tough to look at.

Some people are dim enough to have fallen for the act, and to believe, therefore, that he must have been handsome.

28. Every woman adores a fascist Sylvia Plath

Your post OP made me think of a section of Sylvia Plath’s famous poem “Daddy:”

Every woman adores a Fascist,
The boot in the face, the brute
Brute heart of a brute like you

Of course every woman does NOT adore a fascist, and Plath’s poem is filled with provocative and often contradictory statements. But about Trump — some people (not just some women of course) seem to be drawn to Trump for the worst reasons. I saw one of his rally attendees being interviewed about why he liked Trump, and he responded in an incoherent mash of sentences regurgitating White House/Trump campaign talking points that Trump is SO tough, such a MAN, and always says what he’s thinking without being PC. They think he’s a tough guy. The guy also said “he’s bringing back our steel jobs” (sigh. It makes me sad these people fell so hard for his pack of lies).

Yeah, I don’t get the “handsome devil” fixation either. Trump is not even just average — he is and always has been a very unattractive man even before he opens his yapper. Tiny pig eyes, truly horrible combover filled with hair products (how can she not be grossed out by that nest on his head?), the bad tanning, the turkey neck, no jawline despite his best efforts to shove it out, and of course, he’s obese.

So friggin' unattractive you'd not only need a bag for his head, but one for yours, too. Time for Mom-In-Law to schedule an eye appointment.

for people's attractions... politics aside Trump has always been repulsive to me

on the other hand the men (and women) I find attractive, no doubt others would disagree... I find wit, intelligence and kindness the most enticing feature, not physical attributes

I've never been one for pretty faces. My first movie star crush was Anthony Quinn. Trump is neither good looking nor masculine.

... or stiffing contractors, engaging in racism, cheating on his wives, paying off porn stars, lying constantly, acting like a whining piece of shit, making fun of the disabled, ridiculing Gold Star families, and on and on...

Does THAT make him handsome?
