As we were writing this, we realised it’s not a single blog article, as there are so many people who hate Trump. To be honest, it almost restored our faith in human intellect.
The rules are simple. We are going to watch the world, wait and see who has shared their most colourful opinion on Trump, or which news channel or paper has run yet another story on Trump – one worse than the other. Every week. With just a few months left for the election, it’s got to be fun.
It’s now a joke that's been going on for too long. So much so that's it's not even funny anymore, just scary. What if by some weird fluke of nature Trump actually wins??? “Oh Universe!! Please listen up, we DO NOT WANT TRUMP TO WIN. Capeesh? “
Ok, now that we have clarified that with the universe, moving on.
Even though it's a scary prospect, this Trump debacle has given us some very interesting scenarios, great jokes, fantastic rants, and in some cases, humanity getting back in touch with reality. And in some other cases, opened our eyes to how stupid humans can also be.
So before we take off on our weekly endeavour to thrash Trump, we are obliged to share the best views expressed so far by some great and famous people. Here's a recap of what all the lovely, intelligent, successful and talented people who spoke against trump. Ranked in no particular order, just what we found was most appropriate.
Let's start with the US president who incited the Canadian parliament to chant - “4 more years!” (Even Canada does not want Trump for President!)
Mr. Barack Hussain Obama. (And yes, he is an American citizen, and yes he was born in Hawaii. And yes, Hawaii is a part of US.)
Obama had a few choice words about Trump. "(Trump is) somebody who has fought against civil rights and fought against equality and who has shown no regard for working people most of his life.
He was kind with his words. And we are just getting warmed up.
Next let’s bring in the Brits! Who else could be as eloquent with words as them, right?
“Divisive, unhelpful and quite simply wrong.” - Former British Prime Minister David Cameron
“Let's be clear, Donald Trump is an idiot. I have tried to find different, perhaps more parliamentary adjectives to describe him but none was clear enough. He is an idiot."- Gavin Newlands, a British MP.
"The person you are dealing with may be a successful businessman, but he's also a buffoon." Gavin Robinson, a British MP.
"The only reason I wouldn't visit some parts of New York is the real risk of meeting Donald Trump."- British Foreign Minister Boris Johnson.
So much was the outcry when Trump was chosen as the Republican candidate, that “relocating to Canada” was the trending search term on Google. And Canada being, well, Canada opened its arms in a massive hug.
"The fact is, Cape Breton is lovely all times of the year and if people do want to make choices that perhaps suit their lifestyles better, Canada is always welcoming and opening." Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau answered when asked whether Americans could leave the country to relocate to Canada if Trump is elected. Aren’t you an angel!
While all these colourful terms were used to describe Trump by political leaders, Trump started playing the Christianity card. To be fair he was always playing it, but guess he amped it up a bit. And that was a step too far, even for the Pope.
Pope Francis was not amused. “A person who thinks only about building walls — wherever they may be — and not building bridges, is not Christian.” he said. And that’s that.
We were wondering what the business world was doing in all this drama. Afterall, we look at out business leaders for inspiration. They didn’t disappoint. Truly successful businessmen stopped being diplomatic and started openly voicing their well-founded feelings about Trump.
Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos responded to Trump on Dec. 7, 2015, after Trump insulted The Washington Post, which Bezos owns.He tweeted, "Finally trashed by @realDonaldTrump. Will still reserve him a seat on the Blue Origin rocket. #sendDonaldtospace."
Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said, "Trump says he wants to run the nation like he's running his business? God help us. Truth be told, the richest thing about Donald Trump is his hypocrisy,"
Warren Buffet, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Eric Schmidt and more have also been vocal, but they are way too serious to say anything funny.
Moving on to the artist’s category. Do you know that some leading names like Actor Mark Ruffalo, producer Shonda Rhimes, actor Bryan Cranston and many more artists signed a petition titled "Artists united against hate," that says they are committed "to defeat the presumptive Republican nominee for president, Donald Trump."
Yes, that happened.
And some others expressed their brilliant opinions on Talk Shows ~
“If Trump becomes the President, the world will come to an end.” Said J Law. Apparently she was at a gala where Trump was present as well, and really wanted to meet him, why you ask.
To tell him two words – F*** You! Check out the very merry video here
George Clooney simply called him “an opportunist and a fascist, a xenophobic fascist.“ Just in case we were wondering.
Stephen King wrote: "Congrats, Republicans! You're about to nominate a thin-skinned racist with the temperament of a 3-year-old."
Miley Cyrus took to Instagram to passionately say that she is moving out if Trump gets elected. If Miley Cyrus has a problem with this, gosh you have a giant orange problem.
Jack Black was quoted saying "Listen, I'll take Kanye [West] over Trump, anyone but Trump." You know what they say, desperate times, desperate measures!
Rapper Mac Miller appeared on Comedy Central's "The Nightly Show" and called Trump an "egomaniacal, attention-thirsty, psychopathic, power-hungry, delusional waste of skin and bones."
Looks like his thesaurus just blew up the minute he mentioned Trump.
But the best of the Trump It series episode 1 is reserved to the Talk show hosts – John Oliver, Stephen Colbert, jimmy Kimmel and Jon Stewart. They killed it. And we have compiled all the best videos for your reference:John Oliver: Check out the video here.
Oliver then revealed that one of Trump's ancestors had changed the family name from "Drumpf." (Ha! Best last name ever!)
"Stop and take a moment to imagine how you would feel if you just met a guy named Donald Drumpf, a litigious serial liar with a string of broken business ventures and the support of a former Klan leader he can't decide whether or not to condemn," Oliver said.
He also created the hashtag #MakeDonaldDrumpfAgain and asked viewers to download a "Drumpfinator" Chrome extension that would replace the word Trump with Drumpf anywhere online.
Everything is online these days!
Stephen Colbert: He has a running reel on every episode dedicated just to Trump, so we just recommend watching his show if you want more jokes on Trump, they are all equally good. The best one though was when he joined forces with Jon Stewart. Check out the video here.
Jon just lost it, killed it and trashed it! Yes, it really was soooo good!
Then waltzed in Jimmy Kimmel. The man took centre stage as the host for Emmys 2016, and blasted off beautifully!
“Television can also tear us apart. If it wasn’t for television, would Donald Trump be running for president?” Kimmel asked. “No, he would be home right now quietly rubbing up against his wife Malaria [Melania, honest mistake!] while she pretended to be asleep.” Kimmel then took aim at producer Mark Burnett, the man behind Trump’s former reality show, The Apprentice.
“He’s sitting right there,” Kimmel said as the camera showed Burnett. “Thanks to Mark Burnett, we don’t have to watch reality shows anymore before we’re living in one.” Speaking to Burnett from the stage, Kimmel asked, “Who do you have lined up to fill the spot on the Supreme Court? Miley Cyrus or Cee-Lo,” a reference to NBC series The Voice. Kimmel later added, “The first person we’re throwing over is Mark,” mocking Trump’s plan to build a wall between Mexico and the United States. Check out the full monologue here.
So that ends the episode 1. Hope you had fun. We certainly did. We have been watching this drama play out for a while. Good luck America! God knows you need it!
