1. The following are excerpts from Business Insider's November 7, 2018 article headlined "A Nevada pimp who said he’s just like Trump won a state election even though he died 3 weeks ago".

(Begin excerpts)
A pimp who was inspired by Donald Trump to get involved in politics has been elected to Nevada’s state assembly even though he died three weeks ago.

Dennis Hof, a reality-television star and pimp who owned several brothels, had been running for Nevada’s state legislature when he was found dead on October 16, two days after this 72nd birthday....

By that time, it was too late to take his name off the ballot. Republicans in the state urged voters to cast their ballot for him anyway to keep the seat from the Democrats. Under state law, if a candidate who has died is elected, someone from the same party is appointed by local officials to fill the seat....

Hof called himself “The Trump of Pahrump,” after his town in Nevada, and beat a three-term incumbent Republican in June’s primary.

He told BuzzFeed in November that he thought support for him mirrored the continued support for Trump after the emergence of the “Access Hollywood” tape.

He said: “Women were like, ‘Yeah, we won’t vote for him.’ Till they got behind the f–king ballot box and nobody’s looking – boop, ‘I want a man. I don’t give a shit how many p—sies he grabs, I want a man that’ll make things happen'”

“And the same thing with me.”....

He faced multiple accusations of sexual assault, and these were under investigation when he died, according to BuzzFeed. (End excerpts)

2. Dennis Hof often referred to himself as “the Trump of Pahrump,” a nickname that he said Roger Stone, an adviser to then-candidate Donald Trump and an early supporter of Hof, had come up with.

Donald Trump is infamous for giving defamatory nicknames to others such as Little Marco, Crooked Hillary and Sloppy Stephen. The late brothel owner’s nickname was definitely not music to the ears of "blame king" Trump. Neither were Hof's apparent "flattering remarks". :)

Title: The Trump of Pahrump

3. Since a dead pimp could be elected to Nevada’s state assembly from the grave, I use Dennis Hof's self-assigned nickname "the Trump of Pahrump", humorously or sarcastically, to mean the ideal candidate (male or female) for any selection such as election, job, prize, honour, etc.

In short, the Trump of Pahrump means the perfect or ideal candidate for a selection.

The following sentences show the use of the new term:

(a) After interviewing 100 job applicants, the manager finally found the Trump of Pahrump to be his secretary.

(b) The majority of voters were casting protest votes as they could not find any Trump of Pahrump among the five presidential candidates.

(c) The old king regarded the youngest of the seven princes as his Trump of Pahrump for the crown.

(d) Of all the candidates who sat the government examinations, he scored the highest grade to become the Trump of Pahrump for the priesthood.

(e) The party's secretary-general said at an election rally: "We would be doing a disservice to the people and the country if we field a team of mediocre candidates. All our candidates are the Trumps of Pahrump for serving the country and the people. In other words, they are the crème de la crème of the country."

(f) The television presenter spoke to the audience: "Here are the ten finalists in the singing contest. All are the Trumps of Pahrump, but only one will trump all to become the champion tonight. So vote wisely and carefully.

I mean I get it. Force an appointment to ensure a Repub senator and if the Dems had a mandate in that race, they'd have won and the issue would have never arised. "Vote for the dead guy!" is the better option than stay home.

I love that pimp is being used as derogatory term. As if this guy was hustling street corners and taking a cut. It’s a good headline.

4. In the definition of the American Dream, James Truslow Adams said in 1931:

“The American Dream is that dream of a land in which life should be better and richer and fuller for everyone, with opportunity for each according to ability or achievement. It is a difficult dream for the European upper classes to interpret adequately, and too many of us ourselves have grown weary and mistrustful of it. It is not a dream of motor cars and high wages merely, but a dream of social order in which each man and each woman shall be able to attain to the fullest stature of which they are innately capable, and be recognized by others for what they are, regardless of the fortuitous circumstances of birth or position.”

5. The incredible success of the dead pimp, "The Trump of Pahrump", gives a new definition and dimension (fourth dimension) to the American Dream. I propose adding two more words ("or death") to the last sentence of James Truslow Adams' quote:

"It is not a dream of motor cars and high wages merely, but a dream of social order in which each man and each woman shall be able to attain to the fullest stature of which they are innately capable, and be recognized by others for what they are, regardless of the fortuitous circumstances of birth or position or death.”

In other words, not only the living but the dead can have the American Dream.
