which is why all of his policies support greater imbalances of wealth distribution.

The idle rich don’t make themselves!


#3

He thinks Toronto is an American city?


#4

It seems so and he thinks Obama did something to it.


#5

That wasn’t a tweet from Trump, the twitter id was RealDonaldTrFan.

It was from a fan or a parody account. It’s impossible to tell which.


#6

… said the parody account. :slight_smile:

@RealDonaldTrFan != Real trump twitter account


#7

No. That part is a joke from a parody account.

It can be shocking when noted fictionalists refuse to behave like the journalists you expect.


#8

I totally got taken in by that, too, going so far as to post about it mockingly. Egg on my face. :slight_smile:

Goes to show, though, that the shit he tweets is hard to tell from parody.


#9

After the past year, seeing his name removed from something in such a public manner is a welcome tonic. Now let’s see about removing his name from the White House, starting now.


#10

How’s tRump go’n to blame Obama for this?


#11

Well, no, he himself doesn’t lay bricks or pour concrete, but The Trump Org. has a very large real estate development division that develops and builds buildings.


#12

They should have removed the ‘T’ first.

My morning coffee hadn’t kicked in yet.


#15

I bet they thought about that. There are lots of possibilities to spell amusing things while installing or removing these types of sign. The workers could have a lot of fun unless the bosses spoiled it.


#16

Too bad that they didn’t organize a ceremony for it. Lots of people would have attended.


#17

Well, geographically speaking…


#18

Don’t worry. He’ll find a way.


#19

I have to admit that for a couple seconds I thought it was the real Donald’s twitter. Sad.

If you ask him about this, he will just say it’s really still there.
