    • There are no import statements allowed. All code has to be home-grown and American made.
    • Instead of True and False, we have fact and lie.
    • Only the most popular English words, Trump’s favorite words, and current politician names can be used as variable names.

    I can't believe he came so far. My best argument has been: Even me with my poor English, without much practice, I could right away hold a Trump speech. No problem. At most I needed a couple of minutes to grab some pseudo-facts from the internet to pretend knowledge.

    I thought of writing a simple "Hello World" program but was afraid I'd get the response:

    The TS program says: You're FIRED!

    and the AS program responds: You're terminated

    and so Arnold wins the presidency on the rebirther ticket.

    It builds a firewall around your computer and won't let you in?

    Huh. Just random Trump quotations. Nor ready for prime time, if you ask me.
