The ‘ropeable’ people of Cootamundra in NSW’s Central-South-West have demanded all media outlets stop grossly misusing the nickname ‘The Don’ when describing American President Donald Trump.
They believe it is bad for tourism, and say they are sick of clarifying to media outlets that their town is the birthplace of Donald ‘The Don’ Bradman, not Donald ‘The Don’ Trump.
Sir Donald George “Don” Bradman, AC, often referred to as “The Don“, was an Australian cricketer, widely acknowledged as the greatest batsman of all time. Bradman’s career Test batting average of 99.94 is often cited as the greatest achievement by any sportsman in any major sport.
Because of this, his hometown of Cootamundra is widely popular for touring cricket enthusiasts, it’s a badge that they believe is being taken away from them.
“How dare they refer to Trump as the Don” says local glassie, Kyal Bourke.
“I’m fucking that off it, hey”
“Not only do we have to fight with these pricks in Adelaide and Bowral as to what is actual hometown is, now we have to fight for his name”
“There’s like six statues of the bloke”
“Trump has caused nothing but heartache for this small town”
