    Donaldistic: To be that of the Donald phraseology meaning HUGE. Syn. Large, immense, titanic, Donaldesque.

    Example: Because of her Donaldistic prevarications and lack of care when dealing with matters of Top Secret information, Hillary might get sent to the hoosgow.

    If Trump becomes the president, I guess that term will be more popular and commonly used. Before Erap Estrada became president of the Philippines, he had published a book called Eraptions, humorous quotes which are actually recylced jokes that was directed at him. He had the image of a man who speaks poor English so there are lots of jokes about his ignorance of the language. Until now the term Eraption still refers to him.

    By the way, Erap is only a moniker of Joseph Estrada whose real name is Joseph Ejercito. And after being president of the country, he was jailed for plunder and was eventually pardoned. Now he is mayor of Manila.

    Facetious fellow that I am, I should point out that in the UK, the phrase to "go for a Donald Trump" refers to a daily lavatorial function...

    Frankly, no, but it gives those of us that enjoy rhyming slang an alternative to "going for a pony" (pony and trap) or "taking a Forrest Gump."

    This is not a new word but it has been taken out of the dictionary and I think it needs to be put back in because it is here now..
    Kakistocracy
    pl. kak·is·toc·ra·cies. Government by the least qualified or most unprincipled citizens. [Greek kakistos, worst, superlative of kakos, bad; see caco- + -cracy.]
