Poor Donald is getting a lot of stick of late but perhaps we are measuring him against the wrong model?

Granted, he doesn’t stack up well, measured against a civilised human being, but we may be aiming too low.

Check out the similarities between Trump and the American God and you discover a much better fit.

Firstly, the American God is mostly male and white which is not far removed from Donald’s male and orange-ish white. And both have a full head of hair or some such facsimile.

Next, most versions of the American God are not big on the female of the species. 2nd class is probably the best you can aim for. Compare that with Donald who believes the ladies are there for his own entertainment rather than as his equal and it’s suspiciously close to God’s level of respect.

How about the fan base?

Another close match. Trump fans seem pretty excited about the Bible or at least the first version now marketed as the Old Testament. Like Trump himself they are not much impressed by feeding the less fortunate or turning the other cheek, as featured in the rewrite (New Testament).

And what about the treatment of those fans? Both God and Trump feed off the less well off. Churches achieved their magnificence off the backs of the poor while Trump uses them as his power base but doesn’t repay the favor by deliberately trashing their health care. Both entities work in mysterious ways I guess.

Now we come to the mental state and here the match is closest of all. Both God and Trump are full of themselves and require everyone else to jump on the love machine. Not only that, if you don’t, both are very unforgiving. With Donald the retribution is a little less extreme with only the threat to trash your career, whereas God is way more vindictive offering fire and brimstone for Eternity. (I think Donald needs to ramp that part up a tad if he wants to reach full God mode).

Your Love is not just a “nice to have” thing either. Clearly Trump is melting down over having to pump up his own tires, and God goes out and visits tornadoes and such like on America if he thinks they “don’t hate fags” enough.

Ground crew get the same level of support from God and Donald too. With Trump it’s asking for investigations to be dropped, while with God it’s not handing over serial sex offenders to Police.

So what do you think? Is Donald not closer to being a God than a human?

Clearly his humanity level is low so perhaps he is a God. He certainly thinks he is.

This week, the brilliant Billy Connelly. If you are ever looking for bang for your entertainment dollar, go to one of his performances.

You get comedy, music, comedy, more music, and then when your face hurts from all the laughing, you get another round of comedy where you just have to smile and nod your appreciation.

About the only man I know who can say fuck in front of your Nana and get away with it.

The deterrent that cannot be used. I’ve always loved Nigel Hawthorne’s portrayal of the Head of a Government Department. He has far and away the very best lines in the program. “Trident is the nuclear missile Harrod’s would sell.”

Time to celebrate Melissa McCarthy and her fabulous tear down of Sean Spicer.

 

She is actually more informative than Spicer and the fact that it irritates Trump so much that he can’t help promote SNL just adds icing to the cake. It will be sad to see Spicer go but I can’t imagine how he can survive now that he is a laughing stock and the most visible proponent of Fake News.

 

These days Fake News is owned by Sean Spicer.

I was devastated to hear of the death of John Clarke recently and haven’t posted a NFf since the event, but it’s time to honour the man who has kept a discerning eye on our pollies and Business leaders over the years.

There have been many tributes paid to this great man but none have mentioned a little program he did on the ABC as a solo performance where he pretended to be running a Helpdesk and giving advice on the phone.

YouTube didn’t find any episodes of the program, but I was hoping to grab one where he served it up to Telstra boss Ziggy Switkowski. He often targeted Ziggy for being able to sell Telstra several times over and yet still hit the tax payers for another feed every time the rules changed.

Never mind. This collection produced on the day of his death covers some legendary skits.
