Anthony Baxter gives us a vivid documentary called You've Been Trumped that treats [Donald Trump] as a smooth, credible, inevitable historical force.

If you still have any questions about the personal character of Donald Trump, check out this muckraking British documentary.

I imagine Trump's idea of beauty is the antiseptic tackiness of the tinfoil towers he erects around the world.

"You've Been Trumped" is a potent study of the intimidating power of money not in theory but on the ground, an examination of how a wealthy man with a boundless sense of entitlement can strong-arm all opposition without really breaking a sweat.

Audience Reviews for You've Been Trumped

Angry and convincing polemic/documentary that tackles the gruesome figure of Donald Trump and reveals him to be an even bigger fuckwit of epic twattery than previously thought.

Generally poor documentary about Trump's actions in Scotland. I don't mind hatchet jobs, and Trump is an easy target; just make sure the hatchet is sharp. The best element of the film were the many clips from the movie Local Hero, which I dearly love and reminded me that I would much rather be seeing it again than watching this.
