We Both Wear Spanx… and other things I have in common with Donald Trump


You’re probably thinking to yourself, what could Marie Christine possibly have in common with Donald Trump? Well, the outspoken Werther’s Original and I actually have some unexpected overlap in interests, beliefs and activities.

– We both think we are right most of the time.

– We watch Saturday Night Live religiously.

– We agree that we want term limits for local and state government officials.

– We both wear Spanx, although he wears them far more often than me, from what I can tell.

– We would both be horrified if the people we work with saw our medical records.

– We don’t like leaving the house without make-up on.

– Neither of us was in the military.

– Related: We both avoided the draft during the Vietnam War (although for me it was because I was an infant)

– We LOVE us some fried chicken. Any day, anytime.

– Neither of us knows how to use Twitter properly, yet we keep trying, and continue to embarrass ourselves.

– We want restrictions on the impact of lobbyists on public policy.

– Neither of us did any due diligence in researching Michael Flynn’s credentials before he was hired. (Whoopsie)

– We make up nicknames for people we dislike.

– We are REALLY bad at geography.

– We love NYC.

– We binge watch TV in a bathrobe while everyone else is asleep.

But… only ONE of us knows where gold comes from.

  1. this is brilliant — I love, love, love your quirky, original sense of humour — just like Original Werthers!

    thanks for visiting me — I’m very grateful we have connected. I shall keep following — and just so you know, I am nowhere near as funny as you are (just ask my daughters. They tell me all the time! 🙂 )

    1. Thanks so much for the feedback! I always go back and forth between writing too much or writing too little. I’m queuing up a post with short paragraphs about random celebrity encounters… and I keep feeling like I need to bullet it. You’ve just encouraged me NOT too. I underestimate the attention span of the public? I’m also going to try to do 50/50 political vs non so I don’t get too bossy 😉 THANK YOU SO MUCH!


  2. Great blog, had me “lol-ing” as the kids say. Just a thought on term limits. We already have term limits in our country. We, as an electorate, just suck at voting out incumbents. All term limits do is create a period of time when an elected official has no repercussions. (Lame Duck period)
