To have realised that in our house

... We have now totally replaced the word "fart" with "doing a Donald" (Trump)

It started as a (shit) joke, but now we find ourselves saying "has the baby just done a Donald?! Or was it the dog?" And "DP will you please not drop Donalds just before people are coming round?"

Of course I never do a Donald grin

AIBU to hope this catches on, as a subversive way to express discomfort with the election of the new Pres across the pond?

We say the same in our house! grin

My American niece thinks it's hilarious that the new President is named after an unpleasant bodily function! grin

It's not totally accurate.
Most of Donald's hot air comes from his mouth not his bum

That's amazinggrin I'm totally stealing this.

Slightlyperturbedowlagain Thu 19-Jan-17 16:55:39

We do this too. My DS started it last year. I can't say that it honestly makes me feel any better about it but it makes the DCs split their sides grin

TopBitchoftheWitches Thu 19-Jan-17 16:58:45

Myself and dp have done this as well.

It's always more amusing when I have done a Donald, for some reason grin

AristotlesTrousers Thu 19-Jan-17 17:00:17

I'm definitely going to start doing this. grin

Brilliant!

CigarsofthePharoahs Thu 19-Jan-17 17:13:24

I think I will start doing this now.
I might even say "It wasn't me, it was Donald!"

My husband is called Donald, so I don't think it would work in our house. He already gets grumbly and Trump calling himself The Donald and we are reminded often that he isn't THE donald, just A Donald and not the best one at that.

ZippyNeedsFeeding Thu 19-Jan-17 17:14:03

Sorry, should say grumbly about...

Slightlyperturbedowlagain Thu 19-Jan-17 17:14:09

zippy grin

So sick of everyone saying 'the donald' - where did it even come from? I blame John snow!

Letustryagain Thu 19-Jan-17 17:19:21

Well I'm not sure where you are OP but we're in South Devon and my DD has started saying it (7yo) and all her class do. Let's spread the word!!! grin

Bushymuffmum Thu 19-Jan-17 17:20:11

And I think anyone who refuses to own up to doing the fart should be told they're 'doing a clinton'

Hushabyelullaby Thu 19-Jan-17 17:21:30

yup, we say this too!

Hushabyelullaby Thu 19-Jan-17 17:22:53

(and my 9 yr old does), we're iin N Wales

anonymousbird Thu 19-Jan-17 17:30:52

Chris Evans was using this on his show this morning! DD and I did have to laugh!

HerOtherHalf Thu 19-Jan-17 17:32:45

I think that is incredibly unfair to farts, they're not that offensive they should be compared to him.

MoreBushThanMoss Thu 19-Jan-17 17:32:47

This is EXCELLENT . We split our time between London and Yorkshire... So that's two counties covered... tryagain has Devon, hush and her boy are spreading Donalds around N Wales... Can anyone else help make this "the thing"??

MoreBushThanMoss Thu 19-Jan-17 17:34:22

anonymous - he's stealing my material??

I'm calling points of view

stuckinny Thu 19-Jan-17 17:34:53

This is brilliant. I'm going to see if I can get my son to start it.

SasBel Thu 19-Jan-17 17:36:53

Sister announced (via whatsapp nach) that DN had done a trump in trumpington! Classy family I have grin

starsorwater Thu 19-Jan-17 17:44:02

Same, only they seem to be turning into Donalds.

enfru Thu 19-Jan-17 17:48:22

We say it too! It was our 9 year old DS who started it, apparently everyone at school says it.
