    Then change the name of the thread to "How many presidents pretended to be their own publicist?" Or even "Davocrat thinks the English language will transform to accommodate him".
    Your initial Publius comment was to suggest that Madison's pen name was the same as pretending to be your own publicist to plant positive stories about yourself. I never said Madison didn't have an alias. I asked what other presidents HAD aliases.

    For a #NeverTrump guy, you sure like to mitigate his stupidity.

    This is well worth the read. I saw a poll that said that 47% of Republicans will not support Trump if he gets the nomination. This article shows that they understand the consequences. But we (I include myself in this) just can't bring ourselves to support Trump for the following reasons.

    Questions of character and judgment
    He's a racist and/or panders to racists.
    He's misogynistic.
    He lacks substance on policy.
    He's an unprincipled con man.
    He's an authoritarian.
    He shouldn't be trusted on foreign policy.
    He's a crypto-liberal.
    You forgot: He's got an alias that's the best thing since Publius.

    Some people are always so hung up on the Federalist papers as if they weren't initially put out as propaganda to sway the more politically ignorant citizens of NEW YORK to approve the ratification of the new, improved constitution. Versus the old out of date constitution.

    Oh I get it. You aren't aware that James Madison was a president.

    Does every liberal in this thread need remedial history lessons or is it just you two?

    How does he come up with these? They don't seem very imaginative. I think I might start signing some things as David Dennison just for fun.

    I've always been somewhat fond of Buck Naked. Have any of the presidents used that or is it still available?

    Even Maureen Dowd has the same idea.

    -----------------

    Trump’s love life, it seems, boasts more pseudonyms than Frank Abagnale Jr.

    Stormy Daniels’s real name is Stephanie Clifford, but she was called Peggy Peterson, or “P.P.” (shades of the dossier!), and Trump was referred to as David Dennison in the 2016 legal agreement Trump lawyer Michael Cohen drew up to buy her silence before the election for $130,000. (He registered a whole new company in Delaware for this purpose. More tax benefits!)

    Stormy, the star of 2016’s “Sex Bots: Programmed for Pleasure,” has learned to be litigious from the master. She sued, claiming the agreement is null and void because Trump, a.k.a. John Barron, John Miller and David Dennison, didn’t sign it.
