White House Spox Says Trump “Most Masculine President Ever”

Tue Jan 12, 2021 1:29 pm

Just something I came across - in response to a question on Fox News, one of the White House press staff claimed that Trump was not emasculated by Twitter because he’s “the most masculine person to ever hold the office.”

Putting aside the various behaviors that comprise Trump’s character, who would actually believe such a thing? Can a real estate investor really be compared against other Presidents who were war heroes, avid outdoorsmen, and the like? I just can’t fathom why anyone trying to be taken seriously as a professional would say such a thing. Has the definition of masculinity changed?

Cue someone photoshopping Trump's head on a picture of a bare-chested Putin riding a horse.... :shock:

So they have invented a new definition of the word 'Masculine' then?

What even is masculine in this context? Is it supposed to be a praise? Or is this a reference to gender mix of his support base?

Good question. I suppose because of the question posed it was praise referring to strength?

If by "most masculine" they mean "biggest @sshole", then it's certainly a possibility.

We have enough legitimate concerns with some of the things he says. Let the mindless followers drool over this. We're not going to convince them any different to begin with. Let's just ignore the things that don't actually relate to the President's next 8 days in office.

Idi Amin springs to mind. Amateur boxer, Sergeant Major, Dictator, father of countless illegitimate children and feeder of alligators with live humans. All pretty manly, if occasionally antisocial, acts.

Teddy Roosevelt, no doubt. Avid outdoorsman, Military man, actively promotes competitiveness while deriding the “office bound” laziness that was overcoming men.

He also got shot and continued his speech before seeking assistance.

He was essentially the anti-trump

I would go with Teddy Roosevelt. Or many of our early presidents who grew up with no electricity, no refrigeration, little to no running water, had to hunt and gather, sleep outside, chop wood, and so forth. Those long trips to Europe by sea, trips to meet with constituents by carriage. Even with the wealth many of the early presidents had, they still had to do many things for themselves.
You bet I'm pumped!!! I just had a green tea!!!

If an albino panda bear is considered masculine then yes, DT is the most masculine President ever. Still a total knob though.

"White House Spox Says " perhaps it is best for the remainder of Trump's first and hopefully the only term in office, stop reading or listening there. House of lies is almost done for.

Agreed ....to those who address 'masculine president 's like fake strong men like Dueterte, Erdogan and Fat Kim.

But all those guys are physically 'disasters on fat stubby legs'...except T. Roosevelt (and just barely).

At his peak, had Al Gore made it the presidency, His physical build at that time was fitting for a Superman role and he had the look to go with it.

So when I hear 'strong man' 'masculinity...at least me the minimal criteria of some body matching - somewhere.

Looking like a blob on wheels just doesn't match the terms.

Whether Teddy R was in shape or not, I think he gets the mantle in the traditional sense. JFK, Reagan, Truman and Ike are also up there. Honorable mention to Coolidge and LBJ.

I’ve seen footage of MAGA flags where Trump’s face was pasted over Rambo. Maybe that caused the misunderstanding.

It only seems fitting that on that same flag RamboTrump is supported by what appears to be a Russian Hind helicopter*.
