The Orb.



"'One orb to rule them all': image of Donald Trump and glowing globe perplexes internet."

The longer view:



ADDED: The "orb" is a globe, and I've already compared Trump to Chaplin in "The Great Dictator." Back in January, when this photograph was installed at the Smithsonian...



I said, "Nice picture. Especially because the apple represents the geographic place Trump dominated, it makes me think of Chaplin tossing the globe around in 'The Great Dictator'":

It's an arab mood ring.

The misogyny of the press. Use a screen shot from seconds later and Melania's hand is on the orb, too.

Trumpski's will fall for all things Trump.

a/ IS aka ISIS and Al-Queda are SUNNI muslims. They want to create the caliphate, a land area stretching from Saudi Arabia across Syria and Iraq. The SUNNI's mortal enemy are SHIA muslims (as well as all other religon's).

b/ Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States are SUNNI and they indirectly fund IS/ISIS/Al-Queda.

c/ SUNNI's represent about 85% of all muslims.

d/ Iran is SHIA and they see SUNNI IS/ISIS/Al-Queda as an existential threat. As do Iraq and Syria.

e/ The 9/11 bombers were mostly SUNNI from Saudi Arabia.

So, who exactly is the USA's and the West's enemy?

Oh yeah, Saudi Arabia is buying $300 billion dollars worth of weapons from the US and so they cannot be the enemy.

Reminds me of the animated film "Heavy Metal."

They have the Egyptians adding their powers to the magic ball too. Cecil B DeMille's productions are the best productions.

But where is Nefertiti? Hollywood needs a sexy woman on the poster. Is she Melania or Ivanka.

Worst fraternity initiation ever

Surprised nobody's brought up the orb in Woody Allen's 1973 movie "Sleeper":

That is so damn weird.

Reminded me of that new generation of evening game shows starting with "Who Wants to be a Millionaire" segueing into reality TV "Shark Tank" and "The Apprentice."

Especially the music in the background. Slum dog Islam.

Trump is satire-proof.

"There is still much work to be done," Trump said. "That means honestly confronting the crisis of Islamic extremism and the Islamists and Islamic terror of all kinds."

Hilarious. Websites that cater to the Golden Shower Left will be using that photo for years to come.

There used to only be one of those machines, at Davos, but it was huge and required a lot of power. In those days they had to bring the people to the machine. But now the machines are smaller, more portable, you can even plug them into 110. The purpose of these machines is to turn the subjects into globalists by sucking out the soul. The subject then tries to relieve his discomfort with constant attempts to demonstrate the virtue he can no longer possess, both to himself and those around him. At that point he is patted on the fanny and led over to be introduced to his "thinking group".
I understand that when Trump touched the machine's glowing interface, the lights in the whole building dimmed, kind of like when they used to throw the switch on the electric chair. The machine bogged down and some smoke came out.
This thing might not work on Trump. If the deplorability factor is high enough, it anchors the soul. The machine sucks and sucks, but the soul just won't come out.
I guess we'll know soon enough.

Very perceptive of you.

CNN MSNBC FOX, ABC NBC CBS and every local news station in the country noticed the same thing.
Did you notice him bow down, and Melania not wearing a scarf? Did you hear he is exhausted?

The Orb pic is second to the Mr. T/ Rapper style giant gold chain and medal pic.

It appears the story you read was based on Trump’s prepared speech and not on the actual words he spoke (“Islamic terrorism” without even the “radical” modifier).
