A possible fifty-state slogan: "Trump has sacrificed nothing." Run it in

EVERY swing and red state. Make that bastard choke on his privilege and leave nothing but ashes and smoking ruins of his brand behind. No fucking mercy for that shit-heel.

5. If anyone votes for Trump, he or she needs to know he or she

 

is voting for unapologetic privilege, unconstrained by simple human decency, unaccountable to everyone.

I'm not an advertising or marketing person, but I'm confident that your sign or its equivalent can be hung around Trump's neck or branded (npi) on his skin in indelible ink.

6. i'd avoid that language in an electoral slogan - it's not slogany in the right ways

first, it emphasizes tRump with its first word
second, it uses past-perfect verb tense, which is excessively complex and conveys nothing you won't get from straight-up past tense
third, "nothing" lingers as a weak final word of four, and the slogan truncates to "Trump has sacrificed"

but i'm sure someone with a lot of campaign talent is working a similar angle right now

11. LOL. A marketer I'm not. My contempt for Trump makes me

 

near-apoplectic with rage.

8. Not great

 

I wouldn't go there.

That's not the kind of campaign I think she should run.

Stay positive and upbeat and keep showcasing competence and mastery of issues.

9. I hear ya. But hear me. Sone of my students are Muslims and

 

Latinos. I want Trump to feel more consequences than merely losing an election. I want people who hear his name to think of Joseph McCarthy and feel the same revulsion.

Competency and mastery of the issues is fine for the Blue States. (We already feel the revulsion.) I want anyone who votes for Trump to understand when they pull the lever that they are voting for an entitled prick who isn't worth a damn compared to the hardworking immigrants whose labor and sacrifices sustain his parasitical ass.
