Subject: Donald Drumpf

This comes from Acme's contribution that Donald Trump's ancestor was not named Trump, but rather Drumpf.

Well, I had to see if that was translatable.

I got as far as Rumpf, which according to Translate Google, may mean:

hull
gondola in a hot-air balloon
fuselage , as in, "Flugzeugrumpf"
carcass
hulk
shell


I do like that "grumpf" compound. It reminds me of "Grumpy."

Which reminds me of Disney's Seven Dwarves.
Grumpy, Sneezy, Bashful, Dopey, Doc, Happy .... I forget the seventh?
I'm not certain what that makes Drumpf -- Der Rumpf?

Ah, Monique, how wonderfully silly and absurd!
This seems to be Swiss German, by the way, this link.

Top of one page:

"Drampf, drempf, drimpf, drompf, drumpf"

And apparently in card games, in German, trump is Trumpf:
"Der trumpfet!" (page 1065)

In fairness, this is from Wikipedia:

The immigration records list his name as Friedr. Trumpf, but sources including the genealogy organization FamilySearch, a genealogist at About.com, and the 2013 book America's Obsessives concluded that both his father and his aunt's surnames were Trump.[16][17][18] According to the German Gesellschaft für Computergenealogie, Trump's earliest known male ancestor was Johann Paul Trump (1727-1792) in Bobenheim am Berg.[5] The story of an itinerant lawyer Hanns Drumpf presented by Gwenda Blair in her book The Trumps (2000) who settled in Kallstadt in 1608 and whose descendants changed their name from Drumpf to Trump during the Thirty Years' War of the 1600s[19][20][21] could not be substantiated and is not in accordance with the data provided by the German genealogists.[5] Journalist Kate Connolly, visiting Kallstadt, found several variations in spelling of the surname in the village archives (including Drumb, Tromb, Tromp, Trum, Trumpff, Dromb) but her article does not note "Drumpf".[22]

The thing is, the story is all over the place, from the 1600s to the late 1800s or later. Each quite certain they have it right.

The hot-air balloon, at least, is apropos.

I found a Portmaneau website and it lists countless Portmaneaux for :

Trump + President

Many duds but my favourite is:

republican + dictator        =        republictator

Trump + idiot nearly comes up with

moronic        + nix        =        moroniconix

Trumunicating by hate tweet will fool fools all the time.
Twitlerisms are most amusing to opioid addicts
Artificialation of the truth is at the heart of fake antinews.
Pollshevik Trussian election hackers have moved on to US Nuclear Power Plant Trumputers.
A free press is the only non government occupation/institution mentioned in the US Constipation.
