I so want to build a Mega-MetaloTrump giant robot with a talking combover. The great beast will stride around SL crushing everything it hates.

Which is most everything. But it's so hard to make a cartoon out of someone who is already a cartoon.

I've written a little more about the Trump wall after talking to the heads of both the Sanders and Trump groups (and owners of the HQs) - http://slnewser.blogspot.com/2016/04/news-and-commentary-more-on-trump-wall.html

As for cartooning the Trump trolls, I think I ended up making this one look smarter than when he originally appeared (at least to this Fox Reporter) - http://slnewser.blogspot.com/2016/04/cartoon-of-day-trump-supporter-in.html

Cn you even believe these events actually were Trump supporters and not the creation of the Bernie HQ people looking to create an conversational event and generate traffic.what happens in Vegas stays in vegas what happens in SL never really happened..

Batters Box, isn't it more likely that this was actually the work of Clinton supporters trying to make both Trump supporters and Sanders supporters look bad?
It's common knowledge that Trump supporters tend to shy away from anything that resembles a circus and Sanders supporters are too young to know what would work for them anyway. Nope, this devious conspiracy has Clinton written all over it.

I'm a long time Sanders supporter and never heard of this 'Sanders HQ in SL'...

So, who's up to building the cruz/carlyzilla.....

Enough with the myths and speculations, yes those were very real trump supporters who had built the sim, and it was incredibly fun and intelligent people talking about serious real life aspects in our real-lives.

It's tragic to what happened to it
