Newly discovered blind amphibian that buries its head in the sand named after Donald Trump.

Seems fair.

Courtesy of The Guardian:

A newly discovered blind and burrowing amphibian is to be officially named Dermophis donaldtrumpi, in recognition of the US president’s climate change denial.

The name was chosen by the boss of EnviroBuild, a sustainable building materials company, who paid $25,000 (£19,800) at an auction for the right. The small legless creature was found in Panama and EnviroBuild’s Aidan Bell said its ability to bury its head in the ground matched Donald Trump’s approach to global warming.

Trump’s distinctive hair has already led to comparisons to a poisonous furry caterpillar and a golden-plumed pheasant, while a yellow-crowned moth was called Neopalpa donaldtrumpi in 2017.

I think this is appropriate because whenever I think of Donald Trump I typically envision a disgusting creature, unaware of its surroundings, that is continually shoving its head into the dirt to avoid potential danger.

    It’s December 20, 2018, nearly two years of the Trump Reign of Error and finally Republicans are upset with President Goofy. Too late assholes, you gave up your outrage right three and a half years ago. Liberals will fix this problem starting on January 2, 2019

    No,no,no! Don’t insult the creature. It may have characteristics like the slug in the white house but disgusting Donald is not one of a kind. He has a white house full of carbon copy rats just like himself.

    Personally, I feel sorry for the blind and burrowing amphibian, it didn’t do anything to deserve being named after trump. Besides little donnie already has a loser named after him, donnie jr.
