Hammers can be used to bulid things up or to tear things down.  As we contemplate the appropriate way to make Trump Toast, we might want to look into Trump's habit of tearing things down even as he claims to be about building things up (?).

Here's something trump wasted no time in tearing down.

TRUMP DECIDES TO TEAR DOWN THE PLAYSET OBAMA BUILT FOR KIDS AT THE WHITE HOUSE
http://www.ifyouonlynews.com/news/trump-decides-to-tear-down-the-playset-obama-built-for-kids-at-the-white-house/

Interesting, no?

What does this remind you of?

Does it remind you of another tear down on the White House grounds, such as this one?

You guessed it, it involved Ronny Ray Gun!

"Ronald Reagan helped tear down the Berlin Wall, and he also helped tear down the White House’s solar panels."

Presidents like to build things up.   And presidents like to tear things down. That's just how they roll.  The're Great Men, after all!

"Tear down that wall!" says one president.   "Let's build a wall!" says another.

If you're gonna make expensive toast, you gotta do it atop a Great Wall!

Just so you know where we're eventually going with all this.... Toast is but the beginning.  Once we have made really quite excellent Trump Toast, we plop it into the Very Expensive Blender to make the most excellent -- even Yuge -- Trump Smoothie.  Yes, you guessed it, this involves Very Expensive Champagne.  We'll get to these details in due time. 

Some of the process is explained, though only very roughly, in this music video with very dramatic music indeed.

No smoothie for you. Come back in one year!

 ... and what does the ingrate say when we finally serve him up his Very Expensive Super Yummy-Yuge Smoothie?

He thinks he's the one that will be doing the firing, right?  Poor Humpty Dumpty.  All of the King's horses and men cannot help him now.  He's in a moderately priced rubber room telling the walls about it.  Bread and water.  "No toast for you!"

"You're pushing your luck, little hands."

Trump Toast

Begin with the world's most expensive bread...

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/video/news/video-1145138/Take-look-worlds-expensive-bread-GOLD.html

Then, chefs... How do you toast it correctly?

This should probably be in the Diner Pantry, given it is a Cooking Theme, however I will leave it here in the Kitchen Sink for now.

You're right!  A gourmet thread like this needs a gourmet sub-forum!  Let's put it in the cook book section!

The Mar-a-lago Club Sandwitch

The Mar a lago Club Sandwich
The Mar a lago Club Sandwich

Gather together a bundle of 2x2x2" cubes of well-laundered Russian cheese, baloney and other assorted Russian mystery meats.

Sprinkle these with American diamond dust, gold leaf, mayo and a drizzle of Only The Very Best mustard.

Smoosh these between slices of Oligarch Brand Russian Bread which has been thoroughly laundered and then hung out to dry.

Be sure to stack this sandwich so high that only a very Big Mouth, after a day of Big Lies, could get a good Yuge bite of it.

JRM, you're on a roll!   This thread is hysterical!
I haven't laughed so much in quite a while.
For years we have let ourselves believe that as long as we have money we will have food. This is a mistake. The government will bring forth no food by providing hundreds of billions of dollars to the agribusiness industry.  --Wendell Berry after the 2008 crash

Maybe I can get hired as a comedy writer for SNL?

Nahhh!  Then I'd have to be funny for money, and the world has too much funny money as it is.

I thought you might enjoy it.

I think I've found my way to be involved in this forum.  I'll just be a clown!  By not taking any of you very seriously I can not take myself at all seriously.  And vice versa.

Tequila may be necessary on some days. On other days a beer will do.
