Chump Tower

trump-render-1a-1024x507

Chump Tower | Noun |  Vancouver’s general antipathy towards Donald Trump existed before his proposals to forcibly repatriate millions of illegal immigrants from Mexico (together with their American-born children) and deny any and all Muslims entry to the United States. We know this because Trump Tower was nicknamed Chump Tower on the same day that his association with the building at 1151 West Georgia was announced (June, 2013; ie. well before he began his bigoted, pandering presidential bid). Occasional variant: Dump Tower.

Usage | “As far as giant phallic symbols go, Chump Tower sure looks twisted…”
