By now you’ve probably seen Tina Fey’s comments about Trump’s disastrous press-conference on the “Unite-the-White” white supremacy tiki-torch parade with the KKK and the neo-Nazis in Charlottesville. In her denunciation of Trump's remarks, she coined a new term for stress-eating: sheet-caking.
In response to all of the lunacy related to Trump’s commendation of all the “fine people” who support Nazi causes, Fey noted that many people – particularly women – have been eating a sheet cake per week since the election.
If you do partake in weekly sheet-caking, I suspect that Trump hopes (at the very least) that you’re buying and consuming Trump-brand white-sheet cakes.

Fey also suggested that “all good sane Americans” forego the various upcoming Hate Rallies for Trump.
“Treat these rallies this weekend like the opening of a thoughtful movie with two female leads – don’t show up. Let these morons scream into the empty air.”
One of Trump’s Hate Rallies is scheduled for Tuesday, August 22, in Phoenix, AZ, but the mayor there has asked him not to come. At this point, though, it looks like Trump does plan to continue intensifying racial tensions in cur country at his rally in Phoenix next week.
The organizers of the drive to “Show Your Rump to Trump” reported that the idea stemmed from a poem by Emmett Lee Dickinson (Emily Dickinson’s third cousin, twice removed – at her request) called “White as an Indian Pipe” (below on the left). Dickinson’s poem inspired third cousin Emily to pen her poem with the same opening line (below on the right).
By Emmett Lee Dickinson:
White as an Indian Pipe
Round as Distant Uranus
Londoners show their Moons at Noon
Flashed at He who Pains us –
By Emily Dickinson:
White as an Indian Pipe
Red as a Cardinal Flower
Fabulous as a Moon at Noon
February Hour –
If you’re unsure about what to do this weekend in response to the coming Trump and KKK/Nazi hate rallies, I suspect you’re not alone. Should you stay at home sheet-caking while the “chinless turds march through the streets”? Or should you assemble with others to protest the rising tide of hatred in our country?
Well, if you do decide to attend the gruesome gathering in Phoenix, maybe you could take a cue from the Brits – and show your rump to Trump!
