Recent photos of Donald Trump

Has anyone noticed that photos of Donald Trump are beginning to look like the pictures of Dorian Gray, who was a character in an 1890 novel?

In the story of the novel, Dorian remains young and handsome as he gets older, but his picture in a painting gets more and more ugly. The painting ages, but Dorian doesn’t.

When the most recent Presidential campaign started, the first words out of The Donald’s mouth, as the candidates walked on stage, were “look at that face” referring to a female candidate, Carly Fiorina.  Now, I am saying “look at that face” referring to Trump. His photos have become more and more ugly. I have not seen him in real life, so I don’t know if he is really as ugly as his recent photos.

      Donald wears a long red necktie that covers his fat belly. He has no hair on the top of his head, and he covers his bald spot with a wig that is sometimes gray and sometimes blond. I have never seen him walking with a cane. Maybe he does, but photographers are forbidden to photograph the cane.

  2. Selecting for publication only unflattering photos of the famous people that the masses are not supposed to love, isn’t that a classic journalistic trick? How could they know who to hate without that?

  3. Carly Simon was a great singer in the 1960s (You’re So Vain, Jesse, etc.). Did journalism school teach anything about getting names right?

      Yes, Journalism School stressed the importance of getting names right. The Journalism school students worked as reporters on a real newspaper. One mistake, and a student got an F.

      My first job, after I was graduated from Journalism school was checking every story, for mistakes, before it went to press. Then I checked the first newspaper that rolled off the press.

      I was the person who yelled “Stop the Press” if something was incorrect on the front page of the newspaper.

  4. I’m surprised you didn’t bring up the “other” Carly Simon. You remember,”you had one eye in the mirror as,you watched yourself gavotte “.

    I still like him well enough. People don’t like him because he’s a radical. He was elected fair and square. Well we got the titty babies crying he wasn’t . They say it was a rigged election. I can say the same thing when Barry got elected.

    Speaking of Barry being elected president, he shouldn’t have passed his security clearance. He was friends with that lil bitch,bill ayers.

        Me? Why? I loathe the man. I’ve made that very plain.

            The name “The Donald” indicates that he is of German heritage. It is common in Germany for men to be known as “the something or other”. It is a term of affection, used by close family members.

            What about the blond wig that he has glued to his head, so that it won’t fall off?
