    My great friend, am I speaking or writing to a Greek? The differences between my own comments and quotes from online articles are crystal clear.

    They are NOT crystal clear please differentiate your own opinion from the quoted references, currently there is no differentiation.

    Forget the smiley, in case you hadn't noticed you are not getting much in the way of responses. That is because you are not making a clear difference between a quote from what should be a live linked references and your own opinion. This is also basically a UK based forum and the knowledge of matters you want to discuss is on most cases scant.
    Also if you made you contributions shorter more people and clearer more people might join in.

    Trumpian umbrella

    1. Instead of leaving the umbrella at the door, the person in the photo could have closed the umbrella and handed it to an attendant in the plane.

    Poor umbrella! It was left “shivering” in the cold long after the user had gone into the plane.

    Here I coin the term "Trumpian umbrella" for a person or an object that is considered disposable and dumped when no longer needed. The following three sentences show the use of the new term:

    (a) After helping to grow the business from a small shop to a multinational corporation, the co-founder was dumped like a Trumpian umbrella out of the company.

    (b) The tearful wife was left alone at home like a Trumpian umbrella while her unfaithful husband went on a long holiday trip with his newfound lover.

    (c) The homeless man sought shelter and food from his friend but forsook him like a Trumpian umbrella after winning the lottery jackpot.



    2. By the way, please check the long list of notable members who had left the Trump administration.

    I end this post with the touching story of the tragic fate of Boxer, a hardworking but naive and ignorant horse in George Orwell's Animal Farm. After losing its usefulness, Boxer became the Trumpian umbrella of the pigs.

    (Begin excerpts)
    One day, Boxer’s strength fails; he collapses while pulling stone for the windmill. The other animals rush to tell Squealer, while Benjamin and Clover stay near their friend. The pigs announce that they will arrange to bring Boxer to a human hospital to recuperate, but when the cart arrives, Benjamin reads the writing on the cart’s sideboards and announces that Boxer is being sent to a glue maker to be slaughtered. The animals panic and begin crying out to Boxer that he must escape. They hear him kicking feebly inside the cart, but he is unable to get out.

    Soon Squealer announces that the doctors could not cure Boxer: he has died at the hospital. He claims to have been at the great horse’s side as he died and calls it the most moving sight he has ever seen—he says that Boxer died praising the glories of Animal Farm. Squealer denounces the false rumors that Boxer was taken to a glue factory, saying that the hospital had simply bought the cart from a glue maker and had failed to paint over the lettering. The animals heave a sigh of relief at this news, and when Napoleon gives a great speech in praise of Boxer, they feel completely soothed.

    Not long after the speech, the farmhouse receives a delivery from the grocer, and sounds of revelry erupt from within. The animals murmur among themselves that the pigs have found the money to buy another crate of whisky—though no one knows where they found the money. (End excerpts)

    I suggest you read some to the other threads on this forum to see how references and videos are used. (Also make your contributions far shorter.)

    I hope reedak ignores this continual harassment.
    Should I ask what "read some to the other threads" means and harass you? No, so if you are not interested in this thread, don't take part. Stop attacking the poster for his posting style.

    I am not harassing anyone, can you follow his contributions? (seriously,) I am merely engaged in constructive criticism.

    Thank you, Barry, for pointing out lankou’s "continual harassment". I look forward to seeing more postings and comments by you.

    In particular, I appreciate this comment of yours: "If you are not interested in this thread, don't take part." In other words, lankou has the free choice of ignoring or boycotting all my postings if he feels anything disgusting about them. If he sees any thread or posting under my user name "reedak", he is free not to click into it and just go to another thread or post.

    All this while, I have the impression that lankou has nothing much to do that he spends his excessive time complaining something out of nothing. I also thought he has a poor grasp of English or worse, out of his mind.

    Actually, this "Trumpian threads" posting style was proposed by the administrator and a moderator of another political forum as a way to help them save cyberspace by grouping all my postings about Donald Trump and US-Sino conflicts under a single heading.

    Nobody has requested me to post all my threads with this style here. I just do it out of civic consciousness to save cyberspace for this forum. Perhaps the administrator or moderator of this forum can make some remarks about this way of saving cyberspace. Maybe lankou can also help save cyberspace for this forum by grouping all his postings under a single heading called "lankou threads". Besides saving cyberspace, it is also a neat and nice way of posting without messing up or flooding the forum with many threads of related topics by a single poster.

    Nevada ruled from the grave

    1. The following are excerpts from Business Insider's November 7, 2018 article headlined "A Nevada pimp who said he’s just like Trump won a state election even though he died 3 weeks ago".

    (Begin excerpts)
    A pimp who was inspired by Donald Trump to get involved in politics has been elected to Nevada’s state assembly even though he died three weeks ago.

    Dennis Hof, a reality-television star and pimp who owned several brothels, had been running for Nevada’s state legislature when he was found dead on October 16, two days after this 72nd birthday....

    By that time, it was too late to take his name off the ballot. Republicans in the state urged voters to cast their ballot for him anyway to keep the seat from the Democrats. Under state law, if a candidate who has died is elected, someone from the same party is appointed by local officials to fill the seat....

    Hof called himself “The Trump of Pahrump,” after his town in Nevada, and beat a three-term incumbent Republican in June’s primary.

    He told BuzzFeed in November that he thought support for him mirrored the continued support for Trump after the emergence of the “Access Hollywood” tape.

    He said: “Women were like, ‘Yeah, we won’t vote for him.’ Till they got behind the f–king ballot box and nobody’s looking – boop, ‘I want a man. I don’t give a **** how many p—sies he grabs, I want a man that’ll make things happen'”

    “And the same thing with me.”....

    He faced multiple accusations of sexual assault, and these were under investigation when he died, according to BuzzFeed. (End excerpts)

    2. Dennis Hof often referred to himself as “the Trump of Pahrump,” a nickname that he said Roger Stone, an adviser to then-candidate Donald Trump and an early supporter of Hof, had come up with.

    Donald Trump is infamous for giving defamatory nicknames to others such as Little Marco, Crooked Hillary and Sloppy Stephen. The late brothel owner’s nickname was definitely not music to the ears of "blame king" Trump. Neither were Hof's apparent "flattering remarks".
