You think his face looks ok in that original pic?? It's a f*&<ing tomato, with or without enhancement. Natural, for sure. Insecure, demented frauds do things like that.
Let's be honest, is it really that hard to believe this story? No. Our POTUS has the mind of a distracted 10 year old with the vocabulary to match. I, for one, find it refreshing!No idea of this is actually true, but since the pee tape didn't pan out, this is my favorite....
"After Trump was reminded that the short-legged omnivore was practically synonymous with the Badger State, he'd make a point of bringing it up at seemingly random occasions to his beleaguered chief of staff.
"'Are they mean to people?' Trump at least twice asked Priebus in the opening months of his presidency. 'Or are they friendly creatures?' The president would also ask if Priebus had any photos of badgers he could show him, and if Priebus could carefully explain to him how badgers 'work' exactly.
"He wanted Reince — resident White House badger historian, apparently — to explain to him Wisconsin's obsession with the animal, how the little critters function and behave, what kind of food they like, and how aggressive or deadly they could be when presented with perceived existential threats.
"Trump also wanted to know if the badger had a 'personality' or if it was boring. What kind of damage could a badger to do a person with its flashy, sharp claws?
"An obviously enthralled president would stare at Priebus as the aide struggled for sufficiently placating answers, all the while trying to gently veer the conversation back to whether we were going to do a troop surge in Afghanistan or strip millions of Americans of healthcare coverage."
Are badgers friendly creatures?
Nope, Trump isn't a nativist at all:like I said, it's a vague term that people can use to mean a lot of different things. I looked up the wikipedia defintiion and it's basically pro government intervention. So I don't really think that your definition and what your links refer to, match.
Trump populism is anti global elites, pro america, trade interventionism. There are populist components, but it doesn't meet the general definition you're using. Nationalism does.
Is Obama a nativist?
