Midnight Meme Of The Day!


-by Noah

The picture for this meme has been used for several memes, but, after SeƱor Trumpanzee's "Shithole Explosion," I had to take another look at it and add my own caption to it.

Having worked in the music business, I couldn't help remembering a similar pose by another group of Germans, and I don't mean German-Americans. In this case, I'm talking about real Germans, Kraftwerk, the pioneering innovators of the electronic music. Kraftwerk, as you can see, liked to play with very germanic imagery. If you google the band, you can see a lot more. They did it with a kind of tongue in cheek attitude. Apparently, the Trumps are playing with the same style, but, most likely, for different reasons.

There was also the album cover of the classic Meet The Beatles album with its dramatic cover photo by the band's German friend, photographer Astrid Kirschnerr who they had met in their Hamburg days.

So, you see, what the Trumps were going for with this photo didn't just pop out of thin air. No, they chose a specific historical style. Would it shock you if someone in the Trump family was inspired not by the dramatic artistic statements of rock bands, but by something darker, from an something that matches their political dreams? Can't you see Eric or Don Jr. growing up with the poster below on the wall of their room? Maybe it was a Christmas gift form dad; his way of saying Merry Christmas.

Sadly, The Trumps isn't the name of a ground-breaking rock band but the name of a country-breaking family.

Connecting Trump to rock music is an insult. The only music suitable for the Trumps is whatever they play at incestuous hillbilly weddings.

Whenever I see pics of the shitholes, why is it that I only hear the theme from JAWS?
