The Fog Of Historical Pictures: Worst Photo-Op Ever

Trump: A Man and his Sharpie.

I’m old enough to remember when Republicans were the best at photo-ops. Reagan’s image man Mike Deaver was the master of the fully staged photo-op. And Reagan was an actor: he knew how to pose and not to give a thumbs-up in 90% of his photos like the Insult Comedian. Half the time he looks like he’s hitchhiking.

The latest picture from Team Trump featured above is the worst photo-op ever. It was, of course, tweeted out although the Insult Comedian laughably claims to not like tweeting. Yeah right, Mr. Flim-Flam Man:

The pad is obviously blanker than his “very good brain.” Plus, who the hell believes Trump is capable of writing a speech? And who writes a speech with a Sharpie? They’re great for signs for demonstrations. We’ll see a lot of Sharpie art tomorrow y’all.

Is there any Trump room that isn’t nouveau riche tacky? He likes glitter more than a New Orleanian during Carnival. Glitter is crack for some of my friends. You know who you are.

There was considerable snickering about the whole “Winter White House” thing. It’s another Nixonian throwback. Tricky’s spokescreeps often referred to his pad in San Clemente as the Western White House. Of course, Nixon had a brain, which is something this moron lacks, his vehement protestations notwithstanding. But like Trump, Tricky’s photo-ops were not always stellar:

Note the dress shoes. Only Tricky would stroll on the beach in wingtips. I doubt if he even owned a pair of sneakers or boat shoes or anything informal. At least he took his tie off.

The “speechwriting” picture enters the annals of bad Trump photo tweets with the taco bowl one. I’m sure there will be more to come. It’s a pity that he’ll never tweet this picture of the Lithuanian mural wherein he and Vlad are Vilnius’ of the piece:

Putin-Trump mural.

    There is an insanely heated back and forth on the twitter posting that identified the desk as belonging to the hotel concierge

    The question being debated is: Did Domf steal the nice lady’s desk, or does he have more than one room decorated with that hideous tile and faux antique desk?

    How did we get here folks?

    HOW????

    I think Trump actually does write with a Sharpie. If you look at his handwriting it is printed in big letters. Google ‘Trump letter’ or ‘Trump handwriting’ and you can see. I do think you will see a lot of casual lying with images from President Trump with images showing him doing X on Y date when obviously it was staged.

    It looks like a wax dummy…which is to say exactly what we’re about to get.
