News from the Campaign Trail

This is hard to believe. It is so hard to believe that it’s probably true. The artist, named Illma Gore, who painted the less than flattering picture of a nude Donald Trump has been physically assaulted near her home in Los Angeles. Such is her claim.

Here is the Instagram evidence:

You recall that the painting, which I will not reproduce, portrayed Trump as having a less than imposing virile organ.

In other news from the campaign trail, the noted Romanian hacker, Guccifer, has said that he breached Hillary Clinton’s server repeatedly and that it was not very difficult to do so.

It's not humanely possible for me to care any less about this girl, or her "art" than I do at this very moment.

I'm willing to wager..

Hate Hoax by a masochist.

No Trump fan knows or cares about the painting.

It was quickly forgotten.

This is self-promotion by a freak.

Just like Emma Sulkowicz.

Or the UV and Duke LaCrosse cases.

She's probably into S&M anyway.

The only sexual culture worth its name is L&M: Love and Marriage.

The question "Is the attack real?" does bother me, but it does look more like a SM photoshoot (if such things exist) that documenting bruises. Maybe she should have skipped the red lipstick on the second shot?

Google finds her website quick enough, with a cropped version of her Trump, and a poetic message of acceptance of our bodies.

Anyway, easy enough to call this a hoax-attack. And if so, perhaps she needs to look in the mirror for the "massive prick" she sees in Trump. Good artists shouldn't have to play a victim to get attention. Gore is a controversial Gender Fluid Futurist. A fine Artist merging tech, our physical selves and art.
"Make America Great Again" 11"x14" Pastel Pencils, 2016

"Make America Great Again" was created to evoke a reaction from its audience, good or bad, about the significance we place on our physical selves. One should not feel emasculated by their penis size or vagina, as it does not define who you are. Your genitals do not define your gender, your power, or your status.

Simply put, you can be a massive prick, despite what is in your pants.

The insinuation is that she was attacked because she created this art about Trump.

After all, we know only anti-Trump people get beat up in Los Angeles, California.

The media ignores organized riots at Trump rallies, but one artist gets jumped on the streets of Los Angeles and the implication is that Trumpists are a threat to everything America holds dear.

But hey, it might be true because we know Trump supporters are caveman troglodytes who are racists who beat up white girls. Rob Reiner said all Trump supporters are racists, so it must be true.

Got it. Noted. Check.

This is going to be a fascinating general election.

Rob Reiner.

Fat, no talent, liberal shmuck, whom if his father wasn't Carl Reiner, he'd probably be delivering pizzas to the Morning Joe set.

IAC, Stuart didn't give the story, and she claimed the attacker(s) said "Trump 2016" as proof of his motives.

But unless she was carrying her "little Trump" artwork around the neighborhood, or shouting antitrump chants, it seems unlikely that she'd be recognized by a Trump supporter and randomly attacked.

If real, perhaps it was like the old white guy at the Trump rally - sucker punching the black guy getting escorted out, after the the black guy raised his middle finger. So if Ms. Gore said or gestured something that provoked the attacker(s), that's no excuse for violence, but she's still being deceptive if she excludes stating her participation in the setup.

As Trump said "People who are following me are very passionate" which means they're weak-willed and stupid, so don't provoke them, and you'll be okay.

He was a great as Meathead.

And I love SURE THING, a old-fashioned comedy romance.
