Was it a submissive curtsey or an obsequious bow? Is the proper
spelling "curtsey" or "curtsy"? Or did Trump invent a new
move that is half-bow, half-curtsy/curtsey ... the burtsy/burtsey/bowsey? The Internet debate rages on ...
And why did Melania slap away one of the Serial Groper's tentacles, on an
airport runway in Tel-Aviv, Israel?

submissively before the Saudi king in his first official act as an American
president abroad? Yes, the Big Dipper dropped a pretty little
dip, while receiving the
Gilded Collar of King Salman Abdulaziz al-Saud. This, after Trump had blasted
President Obama for a much more reserved half-bow several years before, tweeting
at the time: "Do we want a President who bows to the Saudis?" But a meek little
curtsey, however prettily delivered, is far less presidential than a half-bow.
So let's add The Hissy-Fit Hypocrite and the Hypocritic
Oaf to our ever-expanding list of
Donald Trump Nicknames.
Trump loyalist and campaign adviser Roger Stone was livid about the curtsey,
tweeting: "Candidly, it makes me want to puke #JaredsIdea."
Stone has a right to be livid, since Trump had told his staff before deplaning
Air Force One: "I catch one American bowing here and you're on the next flight
But was it a
bow, a curtsey, or some sort of hybrid? One Tweeter was happy to
explain: "To be fair, first Trump bowed, then he curtsied like a sparkly
Another Twitter user noted: "Unlike Obama, Trump refuses to
debase himself by bowing before a king. Diplomat that he is, Trump deftly opts
instead for a half-curtsy!"
Another Tweeter adopted Trump-Speak: "Trump has all
the best curtsies, nobody curtsies like Trump, everybody says so!"
In a similar vein, Trump's submissive gesture was described as "one of the best
and bigliest curtsies."
Another tweet: "For all those that were apoplectic over
Obama's bow, I present the Trump curtsy."
Someone opined that
Docile Donald must have
watched reruns of Shirley Temple while practicing his curtsies.
insisted instead that Melania had taught her husband his "little teapot" moves!
it really a curtsey? During the debate, Michael Moore tweeted: "It still looks
like a curtsy to me."
John Aravosis agreed, tweeting that Trump would "make America curtsy again."
But another Tweeter disagreed, opining that Trump's awkward genuflection was
Someone else suggested that Trump had resorted to a "kneel and bob" move.
Another opinion was that Trump's "manboobs and saggy ass" made it difficult from
him to keep his balance .
Another possibility is that Trump has a dowager's hump, which he normally keeps
concealed unless he bends too far over.
Or perhaps Trump genuflected to demonstrate his superior curtsying
ability: "Who's a pretty princess now bitches!!!"
Or did Trump misinterpret Acting President Bannon's order to show the Saudi king
proper "courtesy"? Trump is known,
after all, to have a very limited vocabulary!
Unfortunately, Trump over-did his act of genuflection and inadvertently made
America grovel again.
It seems the Trump motto is: "Will bow for gold baubles, blowhard, or bend over
and take it up the a$$."
In any case, the awkwardness of the bow/curtsey (or whatever it was) is surely
grounds for impeachment!
However, there was considerable confusion: was the correct hashtag #TrumpCurtsy
or #TrumpCurtsey with an "e"? Well, the "e" seems a bit more feminine to us, so
we are voting for "curtsey" as befitting Her Royal HighnessPrincess Prima Donna.
Later, to add insult to Trump's injured ego, Melania flicked away one
the Serial Groper's tentacles on a runway in Tel-Aviv, Israel.
Does her "slap heard 'round the world" mean that Melania has finally joined the
Resistance, or will she continue to stand by her Man-Baby? In
the hope that she has joined the Loyal Resistance, we are pleased to officially
promote Melania from the Trump Sitter to the Trump
Swatter. If Trump is the Terminator, Melania is now
his TerminEX. Will she star as a real-life Black Widow, sucking
the life-juice from her mate, in a gruesome new form of reality TV? Well, if so,
it can't be any worse than the current Trump-produced Celebrity Apprentice
Q: What do you call it when a Man-Baby takes over the American government? A: Coup d'Tot.
