Trump Executes an Absolutely Epic Troll of Joe Biden

Sometimes you just have to admire the talent.

Donald Trump has always been known as a master troll, but he’s reaching new levels. His latest work makes Ted Cruz’s brilliant owning of Deadspin look like child’s play.

The setup is that Joe Biden got caught lying about his knowledge of his son’s business dealings in Ukraine. In fact, Biden did know about it, had discussed it with his son Hunter, and there’s even a picture of the former vice president playing golf with the executive of the Ukrainian gas company in question.

Enter President Trump with one of the most epic trolls I’ve ever witnessed.

Just hit play, trust me.

I’ve got nothing left to add.

Petition to rename Trump Tower’s avenue after Obama now has over 300,000 signatures

Westlake Legal Group tt Petition to rename Trump Tower’s avenue after Obama now has over 300,000 signatures trump tower troll The Blog street rename petition Obama Elizabeth Rowin avenue

In his heart of hearts, I bet Trump appreciates this as a good troll. Peel away his rage, his pettiness, his vindictive contempt for his enemies, his weird habit of comparing himself to Obama on everything, and, to the extent there’s anything left after all that, somewhere deep down King Troll is thinking, “You know, that’s pretty good.”

I mean, it even coopts his own M.O. What more fitting way to humiliate a man known for slapping his brand on everything he touches than to slap the word “Obama” on his home base?

Some members of the Resistance are so excited about this idea that I’ve seen mock stationery for Trump Tower circulating on Twitter, with “725 Barack H. Obama Avenue” listed in the letterhead instead of “Fifth Avenue.”

“I honestly started it as a joke,” Elizabeth Rowin, the woman behind the petition told Newsweek. “I saw a comedian joke about how it would make Trump so mad if it was named after former President Obama and thought why not,” she added.

Rowin said she wrote to the New York City Council and got responses from several members assuring they would pursue the case.

The 56-year-old petitioner said the city should honor the president responsible for taking out Osama Bin Laden, the mastermind behind the September 11 terror attacks that killed almost 3,000 people. Rowin and other supporters also want to honor the leader for being “scandal-free” and “bringing back the economy.”

Here’s the petition, which is at 302,000 signatures and counting as I write this. To the extent that the support of local residents is required, there should be no problem. Manhattan was a deep indigo blue in the 2016 election, including Trump Tower’s precinct, and the rules on street-naming for one Manhattan Community Board require the signatures of just 100 locals to force consideration of a naming proposal. But there’s a problem. For one thing, that same Community Board requires that notice be posted of the naming proposal and there be “no objections” to it. There are probably a few Republicans in the vicinity in this case who’d pipe up on Trump’s behalf, starting with right-leaning residents of Trump Tower itself. Like Trump himself!

For another thing, it’s awfully petty. The Times reports that city officials are cool to the idea.

[City Council Speaker Corey] Johnson, who effectively determines whether the renaming will happen, said in a statement, “As much as I love the idea of celebrating President Obama, I am not positive this is the best way.”

“The Obamas epitomize class, dedication to public service and respect for the Oval Office,” he added. “I’m pretty confident we can find a better way to honor the greatest president of my lifetime than by trolling the worst president of my lifetime.”

Councilman Keith Powers, a Democrat, said, “While this is a fun and clever idea, the best way to protest the president is to go back and win the White House.”

“I actually think Obama wouldn’t like it,” added Powers, which is likely true. Obama has always cultivated an image of being above the fray; lending his name to a measure that stoops to trolling Trump would be off-brand. Really, how much of an honor is it to have a street named after you if you’re just being used as a prop to make a political enemy mad?

On top of all that, the Community Board that oversees Trump Tower’s district has a moratorium on “secondary street names,” likely because the real estate involved is so central and heavily trafficked — we’re talking midtown, Fifth Avenue here — that they’d be inundated with requests by all sorts of people pushing pet causes if they started accepting applications again. Even if they were willing to hear this as a special request, current rules require that secondary street names be limited to people who have been dead for several years. You can understand why: Imagine renaming a street after someone living who subsequently ends up at the center of some embarrassing scandal.

Even if all that could be overcome, there’s still the problem that this would be a secondary street name, not a renaming. New York City isn’t going to rename Fifth Avenue. What it would do in this case is add Obama’s name as a secondary designation to the stretch of Fifth Avenue on which Trump Tower is located, a la Sixth Avenue and “Avenue of the Americas.” The point is that Trump Tower wouldn’t need to change its official address or its letterhead. The trolling would largely amount to Trump himself potentially catching a glimpse of Obama’s name whenever he hopped out of his limo and glanced towards the corner, where the street signs are. Other than that, the only time he’d encounter “Barack H. Obama Avenue” would be on mail addressed to Trump Tower by people who chose to use that designation instead of “Fifth Avenue.”

Which, admittedly, would be pretty funny. But a determined Resistance type could use that address now and still get their letter safely delivered in all likelihood. It’s not like the Postal Service won’t know where to find Trump Tower if “Fifth Avenue” isn’t on the envelope.

Here’s the woman who started the petition getting some free airtime this afternoon from Resistance TV. You know, if they’re eager to troll Trump by naming his home street after a political enemy and they’re stuck choosing someone who’s already deceased, I know just the guy.

Pearl-Clutching Lefties Aren’t Happy About “Cocaine Mitch” Merchandise

Westlake Legal Group cocainemitch-1-620x413 Pearl-Clutching Lefties Aren’t Happy About “Cocaine Mitch” Merchandise troll Team Mitch Mitch McConnell meme Lindsey Graham Kentucky Front Page Stories Front Page Don Cherry don blankenship Cocaine Mitch Carolina Hurricanes Allow Media Exception 2020 election

If leftists were smart, they would have learned a long, long time ago that while their powers of emotional manipulation are quite impressive, their ability to meme, troll, or otherwise social media is nearly non-existent. Their hashtag games work about as well as hashtag diplomacy. For some reason, their Twitter polls never end up with results even resembling the results of “scientific polls” they pay for. And, their attempts to meme-smear the right hilariously fail on the regular.

In the latest example, failed U.S. Senate candidate Don Blankenship (D-WV) will never live down his attempt to remake the man then nicknamed “Turtle” into a cartel kingpin.

Like the NHL’s Carolina Hurricanes, who’ve cashed in on incoherent Canadian Don Cherry’s (but I repeat myself, sorry Kira) “bunch of jerks” slam and used his condescension as fuel for their first playoff run in more than a decade), Mitch McConnell has turned Blankenship’s shady, well-placed hit piece around and made Blankenship a laughingstock. (Not difficult, to be sure.)

It started when Blankenship lost his race in May 2018 and Team Mitch sent an “aww, I’m sorry” tweet. (Blankenship wasn’t even running against McConnell, which makes it even funnier.)

When McConnell seemed to really grow a pair – ehh, a spine – during the Great Kavanaugh Confirmation Saga of 2018, the Cocaine Mitch legend took on new life. McConnell even gained a sidekick – Cocaine Lindsey Graham. One of the funniest things about the Adventures of Cocaine Mitch and Cocaine Lindsey is the irony of it all. Two men who have been known to, well, easily surrender instead of charging into the fight suddenly woke up and said, “IDGAF.”

Apparently McConnell decided that no one, no one, would call him Turtle ever again.

As our own Sister Toldjah covered, this week Team Mitch started selling “Cocaine Mitch” t-shirts on the campaign website, a picture of McConnell on the front and the words “Cartel Member” on the back. At last check, they were selling like hotcakes.

Acting like the humorless scolds they are, Che-shirt leftists were suddenly up in arms that anyone might promote cocaine running. One can only call Mitch McConnell a drug runner when they say so!

People who are okay with giving needles to addicts and allowing actual cartel members to cross our borders with impunity, many of whom couldn’t find Kentucky on a map and certainly have never expressed a positive opinion of its citizens, suddenly care about the state’s drug “epidemic.” (Note: Every state is dealing with a drug epidemic.)

Sigh. One of the architects of hashtag diplomacy weighed in.

In reply, Team Mitch pwned Conrad.

Quick, Team Mitch – while attempting to tie McConnell to the “Chan crowd,” they’ve given you another priceless opportunity to market. “Old Dork Meme Lord,” oh my.

These new rules… they’re kinda fun.

Let’s hope they’re as effective for other conservatives as they’ve been for Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell. At least C-list candidates might think twice before trying to place shady oppo in “The nation.”
