    Not sure where this might fit, but there is a legitimate word, the word is "Trumpery"

    Who here can find the definitions of the word and it's use as a noun and adjective in under 30 seconds?

    What's the next word that comes to your mind, when you read the definitions of the word?

    Moderators, please move, if necessary, to whatever forum you believe is more appropriate.

    Trumpery derives from the Middle English trompery and ultimately from the Middle French tromper, meaning "to deceive."

    It is used as a noun and an adjective, can you expound on your definition and tell us what comes to your mind, between the word and its definitions?

    "Fitting" is what comes to mind, when I read the definitions.

    Yes - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trump_University - Just one

    How many more other "fitting" examples are there to list?

    Actually Trumptards is something more fitting for people that still are Trump supporters after finding out he is a conman, a crook, a profiteer taking all he can get out of his office and how he is made the Office of the Presidency a joke by disrespecting the rule of law.

    There is a Spanish word, tramposo, which means a cheat. I don't know the exact etymology, but whenever I use the word Trumposo with Spanish speakers, they know exactly what I'm saying.
