heron61: (Not My President)
Yesterday, my partner [personal profile] teaotter had an interesting idea about incoming President Puppet, that he might not be lying in one of his recent statements – that he really is a germaphobe. Then, she did some research, and it seems to be true, up to the level that he avoids pushing elevator buttons and such. [personal profile] teaotter thought that this might be one of the reasons that he is so impressively unwilling to travel in planes and sleep in buildings he doesn't own. Naturally, my first thought is that people could weaponize the hell out of this. The easiest tactic would be foreign leaders to make certain to have some people sneezing or coughing around President Puppet, to both distract him and also to make him wish to cut the visit short and this give them anything they want to he can escape their germs. However, we might also be able to use this ourselves.

I'd dearly love to see people throwing dirty diapers at him (and to watch his reaction afterwards), but that would result in arrest and possibly being shot, so that's a terrible idea unless someone can figure out how to manage it and not get caught. However, if he goes with his (horrifying sounding) plays for frequent public rallies, then he'll likely need to be somewhat near the public when coming or going, and sneezing or coughing on or at least near him might be possible.

My ideal would be to reduce him to a babbling & terrified bundle of panic, but unsettling him would be a good start, and would make him more likely seem angry, weak, and also be more inclined to fight with Republicans in Congress, which is clearly to our benefit. Also, both because this is more of an issue for conservatives (according to Jonathan Haidt's research on "moral foundations"), and also because President Puppet seems to be a germaphobe, he almost certainly has unusually strong disgust reactions, and so promoting images of (especially of him) that include various disgust triggers might also help us.
