The Trump insult website you’ve been waiting for

Keeping up with Donald Trump’s insults? Better yet, are you looking for a way to keep the Republican frontrunner’s brickbats, R-rated put-downs, and off-color wisecracks in one place?

Two New York artists have done the work for you. They have created Trumpsults.com, an interactive page containing 55 identical images of Trump’s face. Put your cursor over a face and it changes expression, and a recording of an infamous Trumpism plays.

Be warned: The words come out as the Donald said them, uncensored and with the potential to offend.

The site is the creation of Timothy Goodman and Jessica Walsh, graphic artists and self-described “self-centered New Yorkers.” They say Trumpsults.com is part of a social experiment they call “12 Kinds of Kindness,” in which they took steps “to become kinder, more empathetic people.”

So how does a website loaded with insults serve that purpose?

“Donald Trump is the antithesis of being kind, and we wanted to create a platform that proves this,” Goodman said. “Let it live as a reminder to all of us to try and be kinder people.”

As part of the same project, Goodman and Walsh on Tuesday gently protested one of Trump’s more polarizing positions, his promise to build a wall along the US border with Mexico.

Joined by 100 volunteers, they built a “kindness wall” in front of Trump Tower in Manhattan, holding up 40-inch by 60-inch boards that spelled out Build Kindness Not Walls.”
