The Trump Rat…


What’s orange, inflatable, fifteen feet tall, and full of hot air? – – Why, the Trump Rat, of course!  Now, Donald Trump has been depicted as a variety of anthropomorphic animals, including a rooster.  The Trump Rat, however, shows uncommon attention to detail.  In addition to the trademark hair, there’s also the pursed lips, the red tie, and in a whimsical touch, Confederate-flag cuff links!  

The Trump Rat was positioned a short distance from Trump Tower when The Donald retreated to New York, and has become a popular site for tourist selfies.  Its creator was supposedly inspired by a particularly revolting rat that he spotted in New York City some time ago. The windbag is supposedly poised to travel to other locations, at times shadowing Trump himself.  

I would hasten to add that normally rodent-human hybrids have a proud and respectable heritage, with Mickey Mouse, The Secret of NIMH rats, and Fivel of An American Tail but several examples that come to mind…

    Evidently, you’ve never seen DEADLY EYES. A 1980’s Canadian offering about wharf rats that fed on steroid-laced cattle grain and, of course, grew to the size of opposums! Although, to be fair, urban legend has it that those rats were really dachsunds…wearing faux-fox skins.

      Nope, I’ve never seen that, although it sounds like a fun viewing! The rat flicks “Willard” and “Ben” were also memorable. In one of his short story collections, Stephen King had a tale about rats in the sewer, one of which was described as having grown to the size of a calf!
