The Dude vs. The Don

Donald Trump has been heavily scrutinized for his limited vocabulary and a rudimentary understanding of basic, grammatical structures. He’s even gone so far as to straight-up invent words – the most popular being “cofeve” which probably made literary experts everywhere want to stab their ears drums out.

Not me. I was trying to figure out how to interject this awesome, new, incompressible word into my everyday vernacular. It’s particularly fun to order a cofeve at Starbucks.

If you can make up words on the spot while the entire Nation is watching, you either are the most unaware person alive, or you just don’t give a damn. My guess is, with Donald, it’s a combination of both.

You know who also exhibits that sort of ballsy, blasé attitude? The Dude. Yes, Jeff Bridges’ iconic character in The Big Lebowski is sort of like how you would expect Donald Trump to live if he had better hair, less money, and was comfortable rocking bathrobes.

On that note, here are 10 “Dude-isms” that are totally made up phrases that you should definitely start including into your everyday interactions.
