by MaryAnn Johanson

You've Been Trumped and You've Been Trumped Too green light

MaryAnn’s quick take…
A British filmmaker documents the arrogance and disdain with which Donald Trump wields the power of his money… a warning for Americans come Election Day.tweet
I’m “biast” (pro): cannot abide Donald Trump
I’m “biast” (con): nothing
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

If you’re tempted to post a comment that resembles anything on the film review comment bingo card (now updated for 2017’s trolls!) you might want to reconsider.

    This reminds me of the story where Trump was “principal for the day” at a poor NYC school, and while other “principals” donated money and supplies to schools, he donated… 15 pairs of Nikes to “lucky winners”- but on a much larger scale.

    He would happily have paved paradise, but it turned out a golf course was trendier than a parking lot.

  • Ironically, Molly Forbes has a plaque outside her little house that reads “Paradise.”

  • Matt Clayton

    That orange orangutan makes me sick to my stomach. I’m still bewildered how he won the GOP nomination, and how many deplorables buy his baloney.

  • Bluejay

    I find your comment offensive. Orangutans are amazing creatures. :-)

  • Actually, in the movie “Local Hero” the Scots community is all too happy to sell out to the incoming oil company (part of the humor is how there’s an almost gleeful joy with all the promised American dollars rolling in as they plan to overcharge for everything). It’s just the beachcomber – a zen-like old man who prefers the nature over industry – who refuses to sell out and makes the community happy when the beachcomber convinces the company CEO (Burt Lancaster!!!) change the refinery plan into a scientific/astronomy project that doesn’t disrupt the local environment but still brings in the US dollars.
    Also, it’s got Boone and the Doctor playing it up vs. Wedge. I think I just geeked out.

    Well, and, clearly, *lots* people did *did* sell out to Trump, because he did acquire the land for the resort. Michael Forbes and his mother are the beachcomber here.

    Can you cast a vote from Britain?

  • Americans overseas anywhere can vote by absentee ballot. I’ve already mailed mine in.
