    Is it now OK to mock people for their appearance on OT?

    Because if so, I’ve got some things to say about Reagan and that 1940s hairdo he wore long after it was out of style. And don’t get me started on the size of Jimmy Carter’s collars.Report

      Perhaps it’s splitting hairs (GEDDIT?), but I don’t think of whatever that thing is on Trump’s head as part of his personal “appearance”; it’s more of its own thing or a pet/accessory, like Blofeld’s cat.Report

      Apparently it is, as this is Zic’s second thread doing so. And people say that i bring down the rarifed intellectual atmoshpere here.Report

      Consider this is a safe zone; so long as the politicians being mocked belong to the majority of politicians ever and are not some minority status.

      Mock away. Points given for creativity.Report

      I thought Reagan’s hair was pretty awesome.

      Anyway, I’m generally reticent to go there (I wrote a post on Christie’s weight), but I think Trump’s hair is fair game because he pretty clearly chose that in a way that can’t be explained but my his own volition. That, in combination with the fact he’s Donald Trump. Neither alone is sufficient, but together…Report

        As an aside, I was watching Back to the Future with my son last night, and we saw the scene where 1955 Doc Brown first meets and is quizzing Marty to see if he truly is from the future.

        Dr. Emmett Brown: Then tell me, future boy, who’s President of the United States in 1985?

        Marty McFly: Ronald Reagan.

        Dr. Emmett Brown: Ronald Reagan? The actor?

        [chuckles in disbelief]

        Dr. Emmett Brown: Then who’s vice president? Jerry Lewis?

        [rushing out and down a hill toward his laboratory]

        Dr. Emmett Brown: I suppose Jane Wyman is the First Lady!

        Marty McFly: [following Doc] Whoa. Wait, Doc!

        Dr. Emmett Brown: And Jack Benny is secretary of the treasury.

        Marty McFly: [outside the lab door] Doc, you gotta listen to me.

        Dr. Emmett Brown: [opens the door to the lab] I’ve had enough practical jokes for one evening. Good night, future boy!

        Hmmmm….maybe a Trump presidency isn’t as far-fetched as I thought.Report

          Then that episode of Sliders… “The Cleveland Indians won the World Series? Oakland Raiders? OJ Simpson is on trial for murder? I’m afraid we’re in the wrong timeline again, boys.” (paraphrase)Report

      • Avatar Oscar Gordon says:

        Oh, I think the fact that he is Trump is more than sufficient. Like all politicians, he was not unwillingly thrust into the public limelight, he actively sought it, pursued it, and ran it down like the hunters of old. That fact that he did it with his own… panache, just makes it even better.Report

    On one of John Oliver’s early shows, he described trump as a clown made of mummified foreskin and cotton candy. I loved that.Report
