    Think about it. For the first time since the early 60s a little presidential son will run around the White House. An ultra-hot First Lady. An extended group of beautiful children with handsome spouses. A doting patriarch who is the Leader of the Free World.

    The similarities--while not perfect--are stunning.

    Why posing nude is a problem now? For the past few years I heard liberals saying that women should not be sexualzied, that they should be proud to show their body, that they should go topless in NYC because it's a sign of freedom, that ***** riots are heroes because they use their body... and now that this gets into the WH is bad only because of the R next to the candidate? Explain.

    So you painted Trump as liberal idealist with that title.

    Besides that, it was based on the 1960's Camelot musical, do you know what happens in it?
    There is an adulterous romance w the queen and lancelot, there is also the machinations of Arthurs illegitimate son. Don't forget Arthur himself, he had an idealistic personality, but could not think for himself and couldn't handle the actual issues of the government.

    Not really. I don't think Trump plans on invading Cuba, sending troops to Vietnam, or starting World War III over Berlin or Cuban missiles.

    I painted him as a president with a large extended family, something we have not had in the White House for many years.

    JFK was one of my favorite Presidents, Trump would have a lot to prove before the got there. Both are sexist pigs, but then men are pigs.

    Dude did you actually live through the Kennedy administration ?

    Drumpf family is not anywhere near like the Kennedys.

    Well, I wasn't part of the Kennedy administration if that's what you mean. I said the similarities aren't perfect--as far as I know the Trump family didn't lobotomize any of their children. But they are there: both fathers were shady crooks, both Presidents horndogs, etc.

    Maybe the House of Windsor is a better comparison. Ivanka Trump is the American Princess Diana (except better looking and not as bitchy.)

    Who cares? Are you worried that someone might have fapped to her? It's a pointless concern.

    Sometimes Aaron and I manage to agree despite our political opinions clashing with each other. This is not one of those times. Comparing the Trumps to the Kennedy's is akin to spitting on the constitution.

    I don't think Barron cares much about his father.

    Can't even see what she looks like in that pic, and really...how old is that? Nowadays, she looks like a confused cat staring into the sun, and puts almost an entire department store worth of makeup on every day. And how much plastic surgery has she had?

    I mean, seriously...this is hideous.

    But, to each their own. You probably wouldn't be attracted to girls I find hot, either.

    Yep. And how is that all not the perfect day Camelot? I'm afraid our nation has reaped what it has sown.

    Decide. Is it demeaning or liberating women?

    Very good observation. It would also depends on which Playboy we're talking about. Before Hef went senile and decided to remove the main selling point? And of which nation? Netherlands' edition is my favorite, Italian is average. Russian one is awful.

    Really, I thought Russia had all the hot ones. Or is it just topless pictures of Putin and his horse.

    Models are hot, but they never go full.
    Slovakia on the other hand is a good compromise.

    Incidentally, Pat Nixon and Betty Ford were both models in their younger days.
