Backpfeifengesicht*

*A German word known to many DUers, but for those who aren't familiar, it means "a face in need of a punch" (or slight variations thereof).

Today I came across the name Hogan Gidley, a White House toady (sorry, spokesman) vehemently defending Trump's corona response, & was compelled to see the face attached to that name. What turned up did not surprise me in the least, and in fact reminded me of another backpfeifengesicht candidate from a few years ago.

Hogan Gidley


Martin Shkreli


We really do get the face we deserve.

This recent photo of Trump reminded me

of his fellow faux populists in the superb animated feature Animal Farm (1954). The pigheadedness (understandable in the 2nd photo) and arrogance are there for all to see except for the willingly blind.
