Urban Dictionary - Thrump

If someone has already posted this, let me know and I will delete. But....

I think this may be my spelling of the covidiot's name from now on. Fitting and proper.


The act of taking a dump (bowel movement) so big, it is equivalent to three dumps.

Dude, you should see the size of the thrump I just took.

Welcome to the Democratic Party Steve Schmidt!

Your efforts in the battle for democracy are appreciated and welcomed. Sure, you will occasionally run across those whose temperament will not allow for forgiveness or acceptance. Do not let it bother you. I can assure you they are few and far between, so bring it in Steve. You are welcome here.

Apologies if this is a dupe, but I just couldn't help myself. Michael Keaton is spot-on.

"Trump Can't Just Refuse To Leave Office"

Although written in June, a few months doesn't change anything. Not if, but when Joe Biden wins....

Trump Can’t Just Refuse to Leave Office
We have a lot of things to worry about in the next eight months. This isn’t one of them.
By Fred Kaplan
June 01, 20201:54 PM

So it’s the morning of Jan. 20, 2021. Trump doesn’t meet President-elect Joe Biden and his wife in the White House driveway, nor does he attend the inauguration on Capitol Hill. Instead, he proclaims, as he has many times by this point, that the election was a fraud (he has set the stage for this with his false claims about mail-in ballots), and at noon, instead of acceding to the transfer of power, Trump proclaims that the swearing in was FAKE NEWS and that he remains the president.

Here is what would happen next.
On the dot of noon, the nuclear codes, which currently allow Trump to order and authenticate a nuclear attack, expire. The officer who has been following him around everywhere with the “football”—which, contrary to popular belief, is not a button or a palm print but rather a book filled with various launch codes—leaves. If Trump and whatever lackeys stay with him prevent the officer from leaving, another officer, holding a backup football, would join Biden at the inauguration ceremony.
By the same token, the entire U.S. military establishment will pivot away from ex-President Trump and salute President Biden. The principle of civilian control is hammered into American officers from the time they’re cadets—and the 20th Amendment of the Constitution states, “The terms of the President and Vice President shall end at noon on the 20th day of January”—no ifs, ands, or buts.
