Donald Trump: A Penis Portrait


Behold Tumblr user HomoPower's mosaic of Trump composed entirely of dick pics. 500 of 'em.


Donald Trump Stares Forlornly At Tiny, Aged Penis In Mirror Before Putting On Clothes, Beginning Day

"God, look at this thing," said a dejected Trump, hoisting up a large quantity of belly flab with his forearm to make his stunted organ visible. "Pitiful."


CNN’s Bash to Trump: ‘I Can’t Believe I’m Gonna Ask You This,’ But About That Dick Joke…

“I can’t believe I’m gonna ask you this question,” Bash asked, “but do you realize you’re probably the first person in American history, maybe world history, to make a joke about your you-know-what on a debate stage?”

Trump coyly said he was only talking about his hands, literally saying, “Look at these hands, aren’t they beautiful? I have very powerful hands, large hands. Relatively large hands.”

KRUGMAN: "The establishment’s problem with Trump isn’t the con he brings; it’s the cons he disrupts"

.....the Trump phenomenon threatens the con the G.O.P. establishment has been playing on its own base. I’m talking about the bait and switch in which white voters are induced to hate big government by dog whistles about Those People, but actual policies are all about rewarding the donor class.

What Donald Trump has done is tell the base that it doesn’t have to accept the whole package. He promises to make America white again — surely everyone knows that’s the real slogan, right? — while simultaneously promising to protect Social Security and Medicare, and hinting at (though not actually proposing) higher taxes on the rich. Outraged establishment Republicans splutter that he’s not a real conservative, but neither, it turns out, are many of their own voters.

Just to be clear, I find the prospect of a Trump administration terrifying, and so should you. But you should also be terrified by the prospect of a President Rubio, sitting in the White House with his circle of warmongers, or a President Cruz, whom one suspects would love to bring back the Spanish Inquisition.

As I see it, then, we should actually welcome Mr. Trump’s ascent. Yes, he’s a con man, but he is also effectively acting as a whistle-blower on other people’s cons. That is, believe it or not, a step forward in these weird, troubled times.

on your mark.....

Fortune Magazine to Trump: Actually, NO - you don't run a Fortune 500 company.

PSA: Donald Trump does not operate a #Fortune500 company

On Wednesday, the magazine also published an article challenging Trump's claims that his income was $362 million in 2014. The report says the real estate mogul's actual income is most likely only about a third of that and says a generous estimate would be that it is only about half.

A US government agency says it has attained the “holy grail” of energy – the next-generation system of battery storage, that has has been hotly pursued by the likes of Bill Gates and Elon Musk.

Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (Arpa-E) – a branch of the Department of Energy – says it achieved its breakthrough technology in seven years.

Ellen Williams, Arpa-E’s director, said: “I think we have reached some holy grails in batteries – just in the sense of demonstrating that we can create a totally new approach to battery technology, make it work, make it commercially viable, and get it out there to let it do its thing,”

If that’s the case, Arpa-E has come out ahead of Gates and Musk in the multi-billion-dollar race to build the next generation battery for power companies and home storage
