Trumped Again!

I have been taking the piss put of the ‘Don’ for some time here – but I have been totally trumped by ‘Sesame Street’ who have been lampooning him as ‘Ronald Grump’ for decades now –

You should know a couple of things before we embark on a recap of “Sesame Street’s” surprisingly vicious takedowns of Donald Trump, which span three decades leading up to his political rise.

First: Trump is most often depicted as a grouch — unpleasant monsters who base their culture and economy around garbage. So when “Donald Grump” appears in a 2005 episode as a badly toupeed muppet “whose name equals trash,” that’s not necessarily an insult.

The other thing is that Trump, as president of the United States, wants to end public television funding that created “Sesame Street” — more often known for lessons on counting and sharing than biting satire.

Seriously Don? You’ll end the funding of PBS just because of a little piss taking.

Here’s a lesson I learned long ago mate – ‘if you can’t laugh at yourself you’re missing the joke!’
