Watch The Throne, I Done A Trump November 15, 2016 09:30
If you say, "I done a trump", really quickly, and if you have an existing speech impediment, it sounds exactly like you're saying, "Donald Trump." LOLoutLOUD. I made a near identical observation in last week's widely read Tonka's Week on the widely read Ran$om Note website. Have a look, I'm still chuckling at it, to be honest.
On Sunday night, I posted a picture of Donald Trump and Nigel Farage posing in front of the cover of Jay Z's and Kanye West's Watch The Throne album, with the caption, #Lads. It was on Facebook, and some people made the wrong assumption that I was endorsing fascism (an ideology that I haven't endorsed for years). One DJ called, I*an Sm**ghe, almost unfriended me for it in a massive huff, but I won him back to my way of thinking with a humorous related meme of Little & Large, or Cannon & Ball, I forget which, and a succession of "see if I care", laissez-faire comments of my own.

UKIP gain ground; do some funny memes. Labour get annihilated in the General Election; do some funny memes. Brexit happens; do some more funny memes. Donald Trump becomes the President of the USA USA USA USA; do loads of funny memes.
Why fight back properly when we can do some funny memes?
Although, I've just seen on the news that loads of people in America are now rioting and setting fire to cars, so I'm wrong again.
Anyway, a great philosopher once wrote; laugh, and the world laughs with you. Bernard Manning was always telling the black fellas in his audience that it was all just a joCONTENT REMOVED BY HOTFLUSH RECORDINGS LAWYERS
In hindsight, I should have posted the photo of Donald Trump and Nigel Farage posing in front of the cover of Jay Z's and Kanye West's Watch The Throne album, with the caption, "Anti-establishment", and left it there like Banksy would have done, all cool like and edgy. It would have definitely made me look more edgy, and edgily stand-offish, like an edgy political commentator. Like Stewart Lee.
