Trump

Trump as Buddha. Do sincere Trumpists cultivate suffering?

Do dedicated followers of Trumpism practice greed, hate and delusion?

Sincere Trumpists appear to support the supremacy of self-interest, the supremacy of the American dream and the supremacy of their Nation State.  Do you have faith in Trumpism?

Is their mantra Blow your own Trumpet?

A 14 foot statue of The Trump is available for $614, It is not known if there is a high demand for the statue except perhaps for the entrance to all Trump buildings and for the front  garden of his mansions and golf courses.

We cannot confirm whether Mr Trump plans  to build Trump Temples throughout the USA.

Watch this space.

Amazon may have a future offer of buy one statue and get ten free.

A furniture maker and decorator in China created a stir — and inspired copycats — by casting a ceramic sculpture of the former president in a meditative pose that evokes the Buddha.A furniture maker and decorator in southern China has cast a sculpture of Mr. Trump in ceramic whiteware, his legs crossed and hands serenely resting in his lap. He is draped in a monk’s robes, his head is lowered and his eyes are closed, as if in meditative repose, an emotional state not typically associated with the 45th President of the United States.

The artist calls it “Trump, the Buddha of Knowing of the Western Paradise.”

“He has been already very successful, but now he is still tormenting himself, being obsessed, having a lot of ideas and doubts,” the creator, Hong Jinshi, said when asked about his inspiration.

Mr. Hong, 43, lives and works in an old cement factory turned workshop and gallery, in the coastal city of Xiamen. He conceived the work last year, but only recently completed the first few sculptures. He put those up for sale on the online vendor Taobao, offering two sizes, one at just taller than 6 inches and another at 18 inches. He is asking the equivalent of $153 and $615.

I feel some small measure of Empathy for the Non-Violent Protesters on Capitol Hill, Washington DC last week

Big Screens at the President-elect Victory Speech said ‘The People have Chosen Empathy. ‘ From humble beginnings…

One dictator lost his job. The people fired him. A few more to go.
I watched on YouTube the 15 minute victory speech of President-elect Biden.
Worth a view.
I also watched the 15 minute speech of vice-President elect Kamala Harris (mother from India, father from Jamaica).
Fine speeches.
