You'd almost think Trump is running against Megan Rapinoe who literally could run circles around him

Why Donald Trump and the right can't leave women's soccer alone

Do a Google News search for Trump and Meagan Rapinoe and this is what you see:

Yesterday at a rally in New Hampshire Trump mocked Chris Christie for his weight:

Trump mocks Chris Christie's weight: 'Don't call him a fat pig'


This was Christie's response on Twitter and my reply:



When I posted this I had no intention of writing on this subject. Then I read the article in Salon about Trump and Megan Rapinoe 

I don't believe in fat shaming. If you are reduced to attacking the appearance of someone you don't like it means you have nothing of substance to say. It is also not just petty but wrong so I do it knowingly with Trump with just a smidgen of guilt.

Like in court, if one side opens the door the other side is able to pursue the subject. I'm not sure I would have advised Nancy Pelosi to say Trump was morbidly obese though I can see how she bears a grude against him. (See: Nancy Pelosi called President Trump ‘morbidly obese.’ Is he? ) Remember how Trump Jr. attacked her husband who was literally attacked. Then Trump senior joined the Paul Pelosi conspiracy caucus (article).

Trump, the preening narcissist who has promoted those stupid electronic cards depicting himself as Superman and other lean and muscular macho men is easy to mock for his, dare I say kindly, aspirational fantasies rather than calling them delusions. 

Does one even have to photoshop him to make him look less, let's say, phsycially fit than he really is? (See how kind I am being?)

It shouldn't go unnoticed that when Trump attacks President Biden he will try to hit him on being a communist or Marxist, he'll use versions of "Sleepy Joe", and other ways to say he has dementia or is stupid. He has made fun of Biden who has largely overcome a stuttering problem everytime he stumbled over a word. I'm not sure if he has come up with new attack lines but in 2018 and 2019 when he was still on Twitter he tweeted:

"Welcome to the race Sleepy Joe. I only hope you have the intelligence, long in doubt, to wage a successful primary campaign. It will be nasty - you will be dealing with people who truly have some very sick & demented ideas. But if you make it, I will see you at the Starting Gate!"

 "Joe Biden got tongue tied over the weekend when he was unable to properly deliver a very simple line about his decision to run for President. Get used to it, another low I.Q. individual!"

Looks to me like it’s going to be SleepyCreepy Joe over Crazy Bernie. Everyone else is fading fast!

Crazy Joe Biden is trying to act like a tough guy. Actually, he is weak, both mentally and physically, and yet he threatens me, for the second time, with physical assault. He doesn’t know me, but he would go down fast and hard, crying all the way. Don’t threaten people Joe! 

Low IQ, crazy, threatening people, sick and demented, creepy, acting like a tough guy... of course Trump uses a form of projection when he frequently accuses others of things he has done and what he is. 

The only insult Trump hasn't hurled at Joe Biden actually would have a rhyming ring to it. He'd never use it because it is absurb and would open him to ridicule. 

Can you imagine the blowback if Trump call him Fatso Joe?

A personal note:

I am a fan of Megan Rapinoe Like millions of other soccer enthusiasts I was talking about the heartbreaking loss the American women's team suffered in the World Cup finals to Sweden. The only difference was that my partner and I were having dinner with her daughter, son-in-law, and their 10 year old daughter who is a super soccer player. We were celebrating the fact that her club soccer team just won a third place in a hard fought regional tournament. 

They regularly go to Portland Thorns games (Portland is called the Rose City, get it, Portland Thorns). They are our own professional women's soccer team. In 2022 they won the National Women's Soccer League championship.


Rapinoe  and her sister (who was sidelined due to an injury) were star players for the University of Portland's Portland Pilots so we consider her a hometown hero. Not that very many people in Portland are going to vote for Trump, let another any other Republian who may run for president, but his attacking "our Megan" can't be going over well with too many people here.
