Every time the pee-tape story is about to slip out of my mind, Trump brings it up in a public forum. In 2021, he announced, “I’m not into golden showers,” while addressing the National Republican Senatorial Committee retreat, though no one had asked. He brought it up during at least two separate speeches he delivered in Ohio last fall. And he mentioned it again on Saturday during a campaign rally in Fort Dodge, Iowa.

The lady doth protest too much, methinks.

[-] NuXCOM_90Percent@lemmy.zip 6 points 7 months ago

Well, in this case it was about getting pissed on by the ladies

[-] PetDinosaurs@lemmy.world 73 points 7 months ago

I mean, I would've thought that story was false, but this makes me rethink that.

Every denial from him is a confession.

Not only do we know from early on that trump has as small penis but that he's insecure about it.

Can you imagine it? The president of the United States, arguably the most powerful and effectual person in the whole world, is so mentally unwell that he is insecure about the size of his penis?

[-] TWeaK@lemm.ee 33 points 7 months ago

I never thought it was false. It's entirely in line with Russia to use both the carrot and the stick at the same time. The carrot was obvious: help Trump become president. The stick was also obvious: release tapes of him getting peed on by prostitutes. Most people - even his fans, hell especially his fans - probably wouldn't care, but Trump really cares about his image, to an unhinged level.

The better question to me is what dirt they might have had on Boris Johnson. Complete speculation, but I think one of his many bastard children was fathered to an underage girl - that would be just about the only thing that would make BoJo step into line.

[-] LeadSoldier@lemmy.world 4 points 7 months ago

The only optimistic point I have is that Russia doesn't respect its assets and sees them as traders to their countries. That means when they are past their usefulness Russia will burn them and brag about how powerful they are. For once in an intelligence operation we may actually get to see the dirty details revealed about these bastards.

[-] FishFace@lemmy.world 3 points 7 months ago

What makes you think they had dirt on BoJo? He was fairly happy to support Ukraine, so they can't have had too great a hold on him.

[-] TWeaK@lemm.ee 2 points 7 months ago

Mostly just how subservient he was to Dominic Cummings when he got into office. Cummings used to live in Russia before he popped up on the UK political scene (first as Gove's advisor, then Brexit, then Boris) and yet for some reason Boris went AWOL and left Cummings filling his role. The first COBRA meetings for Covid were chaired by Cummings. Then towards the end, Cummings toured the UK's nuclear weapons facilities.

I'm aware Cummings has been throwing everything about Covid on Boris in the recent enquiries, but frankly I don't buy it. Cummings clearly wore the pants in their relationship - and that was very strange for someone like Boris.

Boris also was not hard that on Russia. The sanctions they talked about making at the start excluded Russia's biggest bank for 28 days - which ended up coinciding with Russia's first withdrawal. I don't know if said sanctions were ever actually applied. Furthermore, the UK set up an arms deal with Ukraine literally 4 months before, and all the "donations" are in fact bilateral aid agreements - if Ukraine survives, it will be expected to pay back the UK at inflated rates (bilateral aid always favours the giving country, as the receiving country is desperate). Of course, Ukraine probably won't be able to pay, but that's a future government's problem. Meanwhile, Rishi (then chancellor) was able to fiddle the books a little because of it.

[-] FishFace@lemmy.world 0 points 7 months ago

That is pretty weak shit to be honest. Cummings was just the sort of big-talking nerd that someone who fancies themselves as shaking things up would be in awe of.

[-] TWeaK@lemm.ee 2 points 7 months ago

You're pretty much simultaneously claiming that Cummings was an astute liar but also an incompetent fool. Cumming fooled almost half a nation into voting against their interets, in a vote that Nigel Farage called 2 days prior - "If I lost 48 to 52, I'd be out campaigning the very next day".

Boris didn't join the Leave campaign because of Cummings. He joined after his meeting with Lebedev. Much to the surprise of his old school mate David Cameron, who went on record saying as much in interview at the time.

Personally, I think Dominic Cummings is nothing but a weasel looking out for his own interests. Meanwhile, Boris Johnson is nothing but a knock off Rowan Atkinson character, performed by fellow Oxford alumni Alexander Boris DePfeffel Johnson. Someone who desperately wanted to be able to charge the same for his private party appearances as "Former Prime Minister Tony Blair".

[-] FishFace@lemmy.world 1 points 7 months ago

What would Cummings have to have lied about or been incompetent about in order for BoJo to have afforded him enough respect to do the things you're pointing out?

[-] captainlezbian@lemmy.world 17 points 7 months ago

Yeah nobody cares what size Bush’s dick is. Could be huge, could be tiny, probably is about average. But nobody cares. He doesn’t make it our problem and we don’t make it his problem.

[-] Late2TheParty@lemmy.world 9 points 7 months ago

I needed this image like I need another hole in my head.

Thanks so very much for that. Hahahahahah

[-] dual_sport_dork@lemmy.world 31 points 7 months ago

I don't think anyone would give a rat's ass even if he were, except that he keeps bringing it up.

We have plenty of other legitimate complaints about him. You know, just a few.

[-] vettnerk@lemmy.ml 15 points 7 months ago

Same about his hands. The only reason why it is brought up so often is because he seems incredibly insecure about it.

[-] nightwatch_admin@feddit.nl 4 points 7 months ago

Yeah, it’s not my cup of tea (sorrynotsorry) but generally I don’t give a lark’s behind - except he just keeps rubbing it in!

Methinks he doth protest too much

[-] captainlezbian@lemmy.world 21 points 7 months ago

Idk dude if you announce that you aren’t into something on stage years after people forgot about the story you’re probably into ir

[-] jordanlund@lemmy.world 16 points 7 months ago

It's likely false, but the idea that there is a fake tape going around was confirmed by the Mueller report.

I'm not sure why articles like this continue to say the Steele Dossier has been discredited when it's been confirmed over and over again:

https://www.rollingstone.com/politics/politics-news/pee-tape-trump-mueller-report-823755/

"According to the report, on October 30th, 2016, Trump’s private attorney and fixer Michael Cohen received a text from a Russian businessman involved in the Trump Tower Moscow deal, in progress for more than a year. “Stopped flow of tapes from Russia but not sure if there’s anything else. Just so you know….” Giorgi Rtskhiladze wrote to Cohen. Cohen told investigators he spoke to Trump about the issue after receiving the texts from Rtskhiladze. 

Rtskhiladze later admitted he had been told the tapes were fake, but he did not communicate that to Cohen, the report says. 

Rtskhiladze’s description of the tapes’ content tracks with the unverified information included in the Steele dossier, which claimed that Trump watched Russian prostitutes urinate in a Moscow hotel room in 2013. “Rtskhiladze said ‘tapes’ referred to compromising tapes of Trump rumored to be held by persons associated with the Russian real estate conglomerate Crocus Group, which had helped host the 2013 Miss Universe Pageant in Russia.”"

[-] FlyingSquid@lemmy.world 16 points 7 months ago

I'd think it was false, except he's so intent on denying it rather than just ignoring it. Years later. It's not like it's the first time he's done something like that when he was actually guilty. Or the fiftieth.

[-] KingThrillgore@lemmy.ml 10 points 7 months ago* (last edited 7 months ago)

If you're obsessed, you like it.

If you're obsessed, the Russians hang it over your head.

If you're obsessed, you don't feel comfortable about it.

[-] ShaggySnacks@lemmy.myserv.one 7 points 7 months ago

I thought the story was that Trump paid Russian sex workers to pee on a bed used by Obama. If so, wouldn't Trump's base enjoy that?

[-] OldWoodFrame@lemm.ee 4 points 7 months ago

That is where the story ended up, and the theory was that Russia bugged the hell out of the room to try to spy on whoever they could, including the Obamas and then Trump, thus the existence of a "pee tape."

A further point would be that the Russian prostitutes probably pushed this whole thing on the orders of the KGB, so even someone who really believes every bit of this shouldn't really think he likes golden showers. He was duped into participating in something that can be used as leverage against him, if any of it is true at all.

We don't have any evidence to say it's true, for the record. But that is my understanding of the rumor.

[-] nutsack@lemmy.world 5 points 7 months ago

i really don't care if he's into piss shit

[-] Pretzilla@lemmy.world 4 points 7 months ago

Spoiler alert: the P in P-tape is actually for pedophilia

Pootin doesn't fuck around when it comes to kompromat

[-] billwashere@lemmy.world 4 points 7 months ago

It could be both …. young girls peeing on him, but you’re absolutely right, he doesn’t fuck around.

[-] feedum_sneedson@lemmy.world 1 points 7 months ago* (last edited 7 months ago)

I kind of am? If I'm the one getting showered on, I mean.
