I am a “leftie”. My butt is doing fine these days. But around 20 yrs ago, I suddenly developed hemorrhoids. My first thought was: “WTF is that?!!!” I soon realized that that is what hemorrhoids are. I soon found a proctologist and got them cut off. That, in retrospect, was one of the best decisions of my life. If someone suffers from a prolonged period of having hemorrhoids, I would say that would qualify for the term “butt hurt”. If you have or develop hemorrhoids, it seems to me that the best course of action is to get them cut off by a good proctologist, asap.
In terms of the state of our current politics, it occurs to me that for lefties, like myself, our current POTUS, (who has not been a vaunted deal maker with the Democrats, rather has been a perpetual a-hole, while overtly and perpetually supporting and arousing his base alone) is very much like a big slimy, stinky, irritating hemorrhoid. He has pretty much, daily, been such a metaphorical hemorrhoid to all who don’t fall in line to him like cultists worshiping Jim Jones. He should get someone to write another book for him and call it The Art of Being a Hemorrhoid.
The problem for lefties, is that this hemorrhoid cannot be removed until at least 4 yrs have passed. So then, I guess lefties, technically are metaphorically “butt hurt”. But it is not JUST about the janky way that our current POTUS got elected. It is the daily pain and irritation of a Hemorrhoid POTUS who makes a mockery of his office and of our nation by his pathetic character and his often idiotic and often even cruel and damaging actions.
