Trump vs Xi Trade War Sumo Style

President Trump arrived in Japan for 4-day state visit during the memorial day holidays for trade talks, golf and sumo. As part of the visit, Trump attended the final round of wrestling matches at the Summer Grand Sumo Tournament and presented “The President’s Cup”, which stands 54 inches tall and weights 60 to 70 pounds. The Japanese media have nicknamed the cup “The Trump Cup”.

Based on Trump’s love of wrestling and his obsession with the Mexico border wall and Wall Street, artparodies has created a parody of Trump challenging China’s President Xi Jinging to a sumo match at the Great Wall of China as a result of the on-going trade war. Hopefully a trade agreement can finally be reached at the upcoming 2019 G20 Osaka summit on June 28-29. According to the South China Morning Post, China had been warned to prepare for a lengthy trade war with the US.

Too bad that Trump’s America first policy does not allow the Chinese to build “The Great Wall of Trump” for him. They appeared to be good at building really big walls. Trump’s wall could become the eight wonder of the world!

Trump: My Horse is Yuge!

It’s Even Yuger than Putin’s!

Trump: My horse is yuge!It looks like President-elect Trump now is trying to one-up President Vladimir Putin of Russia. He claims that his horse is yuger than Vladimir’s!

To do that he had to borrow President George Washington’s magnificent white-gray horse named Blueskin (no racism intended). My apologies to Rembrandt Peale for basing this parody on his painting of Washington on Horseback circa 1830.

All kidding aside, Trump should not belittle “little” Vladimir, but should be thanking him, whom many claim helped Trump win the 2016 US election! Did the Russian government hack the US election to aid Trump’s candidacy? The releases to Wikileaks were perfectly timed to tilt the election in Trumps favor.

A Donald Sterling Parody

Donald Sterling as Super Villain Magneto

Obama biting gold POTUS medal

With the shocking release of the Donald Sterling audio tape by TMZ, I decided to do a parody on the Marvel Comic’s “Magneto – Not a Hero” super villain with Donald Sterling as Magneto. V. Stiviano is the blue Mystique (in Jennifer Lawrence’s body). The heckling third party in the parody is Adam Silver, the NBA Commissioner, telling Sterling that about his lifetime band and imposed the 2.5 million dollar fine.

Sterling’s apology on the Anderson Cooper show started out according to script, but once he got started on Magic Johnson, he became emotional and ended up blaming V. Stiviano for bating him and slamming Magic Johnson for deliberately misleading him. He also attacked Magic’s character and his battle with HIV.

Sterling refuses to pay fine and threatens to sue the NBA. Parody aside, it will be interesting to see how this all plays out.

Masahiro Tanaka Chooses to be a Yankee

My Bad Prediction

Masahiro TanakaIt’s all over folks… Masahiro Tanaka decided to be a Yankee after all. My bad! Corrected the ninja parody to show the Yankee logo instead of the Dodgers. It’s understandable that $155 million is a hard offer to turn down. I wonder what the Dodgers offered?

In any case, I wish Masahiro the best in his MLB career!

WWDCKD?

We know “What Would Dodger Clayton Kershaw Do (Did)!” Too bad Masahiro didn’t take the hint. I wonder if we will ever see them as opposing pitchers in the World Series?

The Masahiro Tanaka Decision

A Stain on the Ninja Uniform

Masahiro TanakaIt’s all over folks… Masahiro Tanaka awoke this morning with a stain on ninja uniform resembling the logo of a MLB team.

The Dream

You see… Masahiro Tanaka had a dream last night that he visited the Oracle at Delphi. The Oracle said:

“You will come to a fork in the road with five paths. They all lead to gold, but only one will give you the coveted WS ring year after year. There you will share in the glory with a recent CY hurler!”

Now which path would that be? Of course, that would be the Dodgers where he can share in the rotation with the newly signed Clayton Kershaw. Kershaw got a seven-year $215 million package. I wonder what the Dodgers have offered to Tanaka?

WWDCKD?

Masahiro Tanaka needs to consider WWDCKD! (Mnemonic for What Would Dodger Clayton Kershaw Do?).

Note: Changed from WWCKD to WWDCKD since the hashtag #WWCKD is being used on tweeter for …Captain Kirk and for …Chief Keef. I’m sure that it would have confused Tanaka to consider their actions!

The Demise of Congress

Half Mast at Congress

Half mast at CongressIt looks like in trying to kill the the Affordable Care Act (ACA AKA Obamacare) Senator Cruz and the teaparty are instead successfully presiding over the demise of Congress. Sad… very sad.

On legislation as huge as ACA, there are/will be difficulties in implementation. Members of Congress should concentrate on fixing the issues, not shutting down the government!

The flag at half mast was added to the earlier version of the parody that was posted on twitter yesterday.

Senator Cruz Green Eggs and Ham

The Irony of Choosing Green Eggs abd Ham

Senator Cruz delared a saintSenator Ted Cruiz reading Dr Seuss’ Green Eggs and Ham during his 21-hour “filibuster” was ironic since the unnamed creature in the story is adamant about not liking green eggs and ham. However, when Sam-I-am finally convinces him to actually try it, to his surprise, the creature really liked it! Shouldn’t Senator Cruz let the country try Obamacare prior to denouncing it?

Here are some of the commentaries regarding Senator Cruz Choice:

There are a lot more. You can get the additional commentaries by googling, “irony of senator cruz reading dr seuss green eggs and ham”

Senator Cruz Declared A Saint

The Tea Party Has Found Their Saint

Senator Cruz delared a saint
Senator Ted Cruz has set a world record for being canonized as a saint. Normally, the canonization process is a lengthy one; however, Senator Cruz (AKA Saint Cruz) was granted sainthood by the tea party in just 21 hours. How cool is that?

After deriding the Democrats for declaring Hillary eligible for sainthood, Senator Cruz beat her to the punch. Is this a preview of the 2016 presidential campaign? If so, it should be a slugfest!

I hope you enjoy my parody of Senator Cruz achieving sainthood after his 21 hour “filibuster” marathon. The photo by Jason Reed/Reuters strongly suggested a halo behind Saint Cruz’s head. I followed the suggestion by superimposing a halo from the mosaic in the Empress Zoe mosaic Hagia Sophia.jpg at Wikimedia Commons

Go ahead Assad make my day

Is the gun cocked?

It is hard to image President Obama as a cool Dirty Harry, saying to Syrian President Bashar Assad, “Go ahead, Assad, make my day!” Yet, that is exactly the message that that President Obama wants Assad to get by preparing to fire cruise missiles at strategic military targets in Syria. Go ahead, Assad, make my day!
He has asked the Congress for their agreement, while maintaining that he has the authorization to act without their concurrence. The problem with this approach is that it (1) diminishes his image as a tough Commander-in-chief and (2) will be a though sell to convince the war-weary American public to support the “warning shot” even with the promise of no-boots-on-the-ground.

Tonight, President Obama will give a nationally televised address from the White House on the use of military force — a proposed strike against Syria. Polls and news media indicate that there is scant backing for a Syria strike. It will be interesting to see if there is a significant shift in opinion after the speech.

The Russian Proposal

One positive result of all the saber rattling is that that Russia has proposed having the Syrian chemical weapons placed under international monitors. The proposal sounds attractive as an alternative to military action; however, as usual, “the devil is in the details.” It is possibly just a diversionary tactic to further delay any action by the U.S. and its allies. China apparently backs the Russian proposal.

A Win-Win Compromise

If the purpose of the strike is to give President Assad a warning that the use of chemical weapons is unacceptable, there is an alternative that is less costly and risky that can accomplish the same objective. If instead of Congress agreeing to a military strike NOW, they could instead agree to give their authorization for an immediate response the NEXT time we have “undeniable proof” that he or anyone else uses chemical weapons. This would serve as a warning to the future perpetrators that the U.S. is willing and able to prevent any further use of chemical weapons. If the U.S. could respond within hours of the next attack with NO further warning, the guilty party would not have time to move their troops and equipment like they have already done in this crisis. Just a thought, from your friendly folks at ArtParodies.com!

More Weiner Sexting Scandals

Can a Leopard Change His Spots?

Weiner Sexting Scandal

New allegations of Weiner’s sexting misconducts have surfaced to throw a monkey wrench into his New York mayoral campaign. This time he has wife, Huma Abedin, at his side saying that she forgives him. Is this enough to save his campaign?

The Telegraph contains a timeline on Anthony Weiner’s sexting scandal. Weiner’s attempt to stay in congress after the original scandal proved unsuccessful. Will he be able to survive the latest revelations?

Some of the alleged text can be seen on the The Daily Caller although the details of the scandal was originaly published at the website, thedirty.com. Weiner reportedly used the name “Carlos Danger.”

My parody of Weiner as Michelangelo’s David holding an iphone to take a photo of his “private parts”. The animated GIF plays five times and then stops. David appears to be blushing!
