Trump
Reagan and Rockefeller in the White House
Business Tycoon Nelson Rockefeller: One of Trump’s predecessors at the top of the political food chain in the US.

The victory of Donald Trump came as a shock to many people who could not believe that a rich businessman and part-time actor could become President of the United States. Yet, electing a celebrity and a man of business to even the highest political office is not unprecedented in the USA.

How students feel about the presidential election

On November 8, a new (wo-)man in power will commence their reign in the USA. The portrayal of the candidates in the media is clear. But how do students in America feel about the upcoming announcement? The :bsz has contacted reporter Susanne Jaworski, who is studying for her Master’s degree in Boston at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy and questioned students about Clinton and Trump. She will provide us with her very own impression as well. 

 
Donald Trump vs. Recep Erdoğan

 

Donald Trump

Du hast ’nen Schnäuzer, ich hab Style und das Geld,

Meine Zerstörer und Kreuzer sind mein Geschenk an die Welt.

Die Welt ist das Geschenk an die großen US of A

Amerikaner sind Babos, außer sie sind Schwarze, Frauen oder Gay.

Einreise für Weiße, nur für diese Kreise, so wahr ich Trump heiße!

Ich baue ’ne Mauer gegen Diebe und Klauer, werde Moslemverhauer.

Nach dem IS kommst du, also nimm dich in Acht:

Ich habe die Power, ich habe die Macht!

 

 

Recep Erdoğan

Yo, Donald! Deine Frau ist ne slowenische Schlampe!

Welche Sau reibt Erdoğans Wunderlampe?

Ich ficke die Uni, ich ficke die Presse,

Auch Deutsche wie Böhmi, also halt deine Solariumfresse!

Du träumst von Krieg, ich lebe deinen Traum:

Ich werfe Bomben auf Kurden-Männer und -Frau’n.

Meine Beats sind fetter als die von Bass Sultan Hengst,

Du siehst mein Gesicht, wenn du an den Hass-Sultan denkst!

Satire: Draft of Trump’s inaugural address discovered!
“Now the trumpet summons us again – You and I have a rendezvous with destiny”: If you vote for Trump, he promises that he’s “never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down”. Karikatur: DonkeyHotey, CC-BY-SA-2.0, Bearbeitung: lux

The scandal continues: After Melania Trump apparently plagiarizing Michelle Obama in her speech last week, the real writer has come forward. Ghost writer Rick Roll claims that (in light of recent events and after an overthrow with the Trump family) he’d rather go public himself than “being dragged kicking and screaming into the limelight.” The grad student (English Literature) makes a living selling speeches to politicians and their families. In an exclusive interview, he has shown us some of his work. The :bsz procured exclusive rights to a particularly juicy piece – an early draft for Donald Trump’s inaugural address as President of the United States.
