Donald Trump thinks he has invented a new saying.

Yep, I dood a smart thing.
This is from an interview conducted by The Economist:  

President Trump: That all goes into tax reduction. Tremendous savings. 

But beyond that it’s OK if the tax plan increases the deficit? 

Trump: It is OK, because it won’t increase it for long. You may have two years where you’ll…you understand the expression “prime the pump”? 


Trump:We have to prime the pump. 

It’s very Keynesian. 

Trump: We’re the highest-taxed nation in the world. Have you heard that expression before, for this particular type of an event? 

Priming the pump? 

Trump: Yeah, have you heard it? 


Trump: Have you heard that expression used before? Because I haven’t heard it. I mean, I just…I came up with it a couple of days ago and I thought it was good. It’s what you have to do. 


Trump: Yeah, what you have to do is you have to put something in before you can get something out.

Is it possible to laugh hysterically while also sobbing uncontrollably?

If not I think I just invented a new emotion. 

Seriously though, how can you reach your 70's without ever having heard the expression "priming the pump?"


  1. Word is he's certainly primed the pump over at the FBI.

    Didn't you know? "The Donald" is the most brilliant intellect ever! No one ever born has been as smart. Any day now he's going to reveal the secrets of the universe and everyone will forget all about the bad things he's done or been accused of.

    Underneath that spray-on tan he has the pallor of a corpse. Look at his eyes. No wonder Malaria doesn't want to be near him. It's spooky.

      U are correct. He invented priming the pump, is the only person who knew Lincoln was a Repblican and Frederic Douglas was still alive.

    prime the pump means Trump is full of shit like a porta potty.

    Trump says we're the "highest-taxed nation in the world." Hasn't one of the biggest GOP complaints about the social benefits provided in many European countries been that they are the "highest-taxed nations in the world"? It's been the reason they give for not providing better social benefits here for decades. No, Donald doesn't have a clue about what "prime the pump" means; letting the billionaires and multi-millionaires get off without paying taxes does not "prime the pump." "Trickle-down economics" DOES NOT work. Even Ronald Reagan learned that lesson, sort of. And now Trump wants "trickle-down economics" on a really, really, really big-ly scale. It won't work.

      A week or two ago I heard an economist (sorry can't remember who) say in an interview on NPR that the US does have the highest corporate tax rate in the world. I remember that because I was surprised to hear it.

    2. Anonymous7:06 AM

      Linda, Very few corporations pay that rate.

    Not only ugly but a complete primed idiot. It does not get worst than that!!

    The funny part is that he himself has used that expression in prior speeches that were definitely more than 2 days ago.

      Most of them were prostitutes or escorts, no doubt. He should brag about the phrases that have been invented FOR him, such as "shitgibbon" "agent orange" "rumpelthinskin" and others. He is a disaster, and the only good thing about him is that the gop is going down right along with him. Where is first lady/wife Ivanka these days? Having more cosmetic surgery?

    I am old enough to have used a pitcher pump. The priming water was to wet the leather valves so it was soft enough to hold a vacuum. One quart of priming water would allow the pumping of gallons. The big deal was to REMEMBER to refill the priming jug for next time. You only forgot one time as a kid. It is a bad metafore for the current situation.

    How did he get a fucking WHARTON school degree from Penn and not understand "prime the pump?

      And he never heard the term "prime the pump" while studying economics at Penn???? I don't think he attended many classes or read many of his textbooks. Did he write his own papers?

    Dear POTUS Trump,

    Please, live on a farm, ranch, rural USA, or even in the suburbs before or still without public city water or sewer. If you have or had a well and pump, you'll have heard 'prime the pump' before you hit the age of what ... one?

    As it could come up in conversation and I might not know what it the phrase meant, yet I would have heard it. From my parents or some relative. Or repair person. As they were talking about work that day or what has to be done the next day, or soon, etc.

    I believe you, POTUS Trump are too sheltered.

    Other people in the real world do have to work (or deal) with actual mechanical equipment in the daily tasks of their lives. We do what must seem very mundane and menial tasks to you, POTUS Trump. Yet that is our reality. Many of us get our hands dirty. Though sometimes we wear gloves if the job tolerances allow for it. We work with real tools. (Not a sexual reference, POTUS Trump).

    We occasionally pay someone else to do a job when we cannot do it. Or trade tasks. Yet often have to do it ourselves or we work together collaboratively or collectively.

    Our lives are not the Wall Street films where it's dog eat dog. Where one gets to be top dog by criminally screwing everyone else. Most of us do not have those kind of morals.

    It's also not your reality show world of 'You're Fired.' The lone wolf survives. The vast majority of us also aren't familiar with the world of lawyers or bankers.

    We also have to survive by being kind to each other. By supporting each other. If you think you exist without anyone supporting you, then you're extremely naive. You're a small man as you cannot see that you survive, thrive and are supported by many people supporting you. Without them, you would fall off your pedestal fast and would not know how to support yourself. I would hope that you can say please, thank you and be grateful, kind and gracious for what you have in your life including to the people whom are in your life in all aspects.

    More than family; if you're even grateful for all of them. More than your equals, er, you probably don't see yourself as having equals. Your higher ups, er, okay, people just below you and people below them and below them, etc.

    I hope you're also nice to all of your support staff, yet more than chauffeurs, pilots, butlers, cooks, etc. The people below them too. Even whom gases up your plane, changes the tires, stocks the tires, puts food in your warehouse for your plane, takes out the garbage, works in the back offices and not in the front office, the person who cleans your floor; scrubs your toilets at the White House, in your plane, at Mar-A-Lago; polishes your shoes, has to clean out the golf course golf ball holes. The tedious jobs. People whom you don't know by face or name. Not whom don't have the glorious jobs at your places.

    Otherwise, what skills do you really have to survive with? What can you really do?

    In conclusion. I am so glad I'm am not you. I once thought invented a word. When I was three. I started to call my sister Karen, Kare, like Care. Well, duh, little kids can be forgiven for thinking they're so smart or inventive. They're curious, growing, exploring and challenging themselves.

    The POTUS cannot be forgiven when it seems he has syphilitic dementia which was never treated.

    POTUS Trump, please go and see a real and really good doctor. Actually, you need a whole team of them. Walter Reed Medical Center is nearby. Do more than self diagnose and self medicate. Do more than use the medical doctor you've used forever in New York City who is not the best medical professional for you and is not one who is helping you. Thank you.

    Reminds me of the time my mother, also a narcissist, told me she wrote a great line and then proceeded to tell me what it was. "I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now." I looked her straight in the face and said, "Bob Dylan wrote that."

    It is sad and scary that this low information phony says this. It shows how terribly insecure he really is. When I saw part of a video of him greeting Comey, what I saw in DJT (not my president) was a man who, at some level, knows he is unfit for office (or for any job that requires integrity and a thought process.) His desperate smile moved me..for about a nano-second. When will this nightmare be over????????
