Dumb Donald Gets Into Shoe Biz (Vid of the Day)

Long before the Real Donald crammed his butt into the DC throne, clever, clairvoyant(?) Match Game writers were creating a slew of silly situations for their fake character, Dumb Donald, to cope with… for instance…

On 18 September 1978, game show emcee Gene Rayburn presented the following scenario to contestant Tina…

“Dumb Donald is so dumb, once he buried his
shoe because he wanted to grow a __________.”

While the celebs began writing down their answers, the ever clever, consummate, entertainer Rayburn hammed it up as an on-the-fly, fly swat wielding exterminator and… to say the very least… he excelled in that role, too.

Well now, it’s just about time for us to take a gander at our clip to hear Tina’s response and see how many celebs she’ll match…

But… before we do so… let’s first check out how all the above ties into the Real Donald’s world. And believe me, no Match Game writer could ever concoct and match… let alone trump… the cockamamie-ness of what went down in Minneapolis, Minnesota on 4 October 2018 / 4:51 PM CDT.

That’s the where and when to how Trump got into some really big-time, shoe business of his very own. While ascending the stairs to board Air Force One, some sort of paper product (perhaps TP?) had gotten stuck to his left shoe.

Assuming that shoe “adhesive” had been some sort of doo-doo…

• Descendants of Rayburn’s fly were likely buzzing about his Boeing 747-200B jet cabin, too.

• While doo-doo does make growing vegetables much easier, the only things growing within veggie Trump’s fallow noggin would’ve been his [1] humiliation over being perceived as vulnerable as the rest of us and [2] annoyance that he’d soon be the butt of every late night comedian’s joke.

• While it’s a given that the Real Donald has never worked his butt off doing much of anything, it’s easy to see how he would’ve buried his shoe… just like his Match Game namesake, Dumb Donald. Or in lieu of that… delegated that disgusting task to some unfortunate underling.
