Why would Trump say he thinks a mask makes him look like the Lone Ranger?

Asked by Dutchess_lll (8433points) 3 weeks ago

The Lone Ranger had a mask around his eyes, not over his mouth…or is Trump planning on wearing a mask over his eyes instead of his mouth… makes NO sense whatsoever.

Unless you are a stone cold republican , does anything that guy does makes sense?

Dutchess_lll's avatar

No. Nothing he says makes sense.
Not only that, his flight of fancy comparing himself with an old time superhero is worthy of a 6 year old.

SQUEEKY2's avatar

Ya got that right, he reminds me of a spoiled six year old throwing a temper tantrum when he doesn’t get his way.

He would say it to upset Dems, and get fluther buzzing.

Oh forget the evil Dems for a second @Patty_Melt WHAT WAS YOUR REACTION when he said wearing the mask made him look like the lone ranger??
Total admiration ?but then hey wait a second the lone ranger wore it over his eyes..

Dutchess_lll's avatar

It doesn’t upset me, it leaves me scratching my head. It’s just further proof that he’s retarded.

You’re expecting Trump to make sense?

@Dutchess_lll Do you actually believe that President Trump is retarded? Or are you being tongue in cheek?
Even slow citizens have the right to run for office. If Trump really is slow then It would be discrimination and hate speech to target his disability.

@ Also to no one in particular It should not be important for ones color of their skin. Oranges skin too.

RDG, he’s autistic.
He seems like a brute, because he has no internal gauge for other people’s emotional boundaries. That makes him superb at brokering deals.
It also makes him a payback bitch.
Melania is the metronome for his mood rhythm.

What do you think will happen when you talk in public ?

He is for sure special needs, at the least @RDG.

He’s signaling the generation that actually remembers watching The Lone Ranger on TV when they were kids.

Also he has to keep pointing out how special he is, in case people forget.

It doesn’t bother him not to make sense. He’s never had to. Just look at how that expectation limits you and me.

@PattyMelt ”That makes him superb at brokering deals.” if he was so suburb why did he have to file bankruptcy so many times? Was he just bad with money?

His skin color isn’t orange. He cakes the make-up on like a Parisian whore to get that Tang-colored glow.

Some people always defend him, and it baffles me. The majority of things he says can’t be defended. They say the media attacks him, but the media just puts the quotes out there and the American people form their own opinion.

Trump’s fear of masks is not about spoiling his pretense at being unafraid. In view of his history, it’s almost certainly about the Lone Ranger’s constant problem with that mask. Remarkably, the fool has just enough sense to realize the association of him in a mask with his former profession of bank robber /swindler. No point in reminding us of his actual vocation.

Because he is a childish idiot.

@RedDeerGuy1 , If Trump is retarded then he is unqualified to be president, and there is nothing wrong with pointing it out. He can run for office if he wants, but we are hurt by not having someone who is in fact qualified. I would say that it is more a case of willful ignorance, which is worse, because he refuses to make use of whatever capacity he may have.

Because if it’s in his head, it comes out his mouth.

gorillapaws's avatar

Because it gets us talking about pointless stuff and changes the national conversation away from the issues that are actually impacting his poll numbers. He’s a master of manipulating the media to get them to focus on extraneous “controversies” that he manufactures and then plays the victim.

elbanditoroso's avatar

He meant to say “The Lone Deranger”.

cheebdragon's avatar

Why do you even care? I’m not asking to be rude, I honestly just want to know why you guys hang on his every word? Does it change anything at all in your life? Because I’ll be honest, it says a lot more about you, than it does about Trump at this point.

SQUEEKY2's avatar

@cheebdragon uh Maybe because he is in charge of one of the most powerful nations on earth, if you have a neighbour that says crazy shit things you tend to look the other way,but when the president of the US says crazy shit stuff ya kinda sit up and take notice.
I mean the guy has the nuke launch codes for Christs sake.

Because we’re hoping that some one thing will get through to his supporters.

From a book by his niece:
“Donald is much as he was at three years old: incapable of growing, learning or evolving, unable to regulate his emotions, moderate his responses, or take in and synthesize information,” an excerpt on the book’s back jacket cover says. “Donald suffered deprivations that would scar him for life.”

I know what sources to believe.

The man occupies the most powerful office on the planet. What he says matters.

cheebdragon's avatar

@SQUEEKY2 If you’re more concerned about a retarded offhand comment made by a foreign president, than a crazy comment made by someone within 5 miles of your house, it’s probably because you are the crazy person in the neighborhood.

@Dutchess_lll A tell-all book written by a pissed off relative!? Better preorder immediately.~

@cheebdragon Psychiatric trained and approved relative !! He is trash !
