What ‘trump’ means in British slang

By Around the Web

(LA Progressive) — Some people’s names just seem appropriate.

A minister in Paducah, where I used to be a reporter and a history teacher, is named “Gottman,” which is of German origin and means “man of God.”

There was a pastor in the same town named “Angel,” which seems equally suitable.

Anyway, my wife’s cousin, a Louisville native who lives in Baltimore, emailed me a link to WordReference.com, a British webpage which suggests that a well-known American politician is aptly named.

Apparently, “trump” is British slang for flatulence.
