This Garbage Pile Is The Trump Metaphor You’ve Been Waiting For
#DumpTrump has a whole new meaning.
After the Republican candidate gave a speech on Monday at the Alumisourse Building in Monessen, Pa., right in front of a giant wall of trash, the internet reveled in the irony of his backdrop.
On Twitter, curious commentators wondered if Trump was speaking inside a giant trash compactor or what the candidate’s advance team (if he even has one) thought about the site for a speech. They joked about their disappointment with his grand plans for a wall and proposed he tap fellow trash-dweller Oscar the Grouch as a VP.
Since the speech drew him so much publicity, we figured that Trump might want to continue campaigning at landfills, junkyards and trash dumps all around the country. Below, we’ve pictured him at some other attractive locations he may want to consider for his next speech in pursuit of the presidency.
