Ex-GOP lawmaker describes Trump as smelling like a mix of armpits, ketchup and a butt

Over the years, there have been wide-spread rumors that Donald Trump has a certain signature aroma that has rarely been described as being good, which the former president has taken great offense at. On December 16, former Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill. threw his take on this subject into the mix via a now viral social media post, writing, "I’m genuinely surprised how people close to Trump haven’t talked about the odor. It’s truly something to behold. Wear a mask if you can." And he doubled down on that in a recent interview on The MeidasTouch Network.

On the subject of a Trump spokesperson firing back at Kinzinger's claim with, “Adam Kinzinger farted on live TV and is an unemployed fraud," Kinzinger went in even harder. ................(more)

How on earth would you advertise it? "Smell like success. Smell like Trump." sure isn't going to cut it.

I suppose they could put it in a spray can and sell it like pepper spray. Need to repel an aggressor? Give 'em a blast of Trump in the face!

Shouldn't he have issued a fake twixt by now proclaiming, "I smell like the best flowers on a beautiful spring morning! A lot of people are saying mine is the best smell ever, the likes of which have never been smelled before, that I can tell you!" Instead all he says is that there was that one time that Kinzinger farted on TV. Why doesn't he deny that he smells like a porta-potty at a barbecue-eating contest on an August day in Memphis?

"I can personally attest that neither roses nor fresh-baked bread can compete with the sweet aroma of President Trump's butt crack after an afternoon of golf on a warm day. It is an honor for me just to have the opportunity to inhale the fragrance of his golf cart seat while he putts so magnificently."

6. World leaders who interacted with Trump probably had to hold their noses n more than one way.

Perhaps those leaders who were openly laughing at Trump were laughing about more than his constant bloviating nd his display of utter ignorance about world history and affairs.
