The Old Father time trying to launch a dodgy babyish new father time into 2019.
The Scottish Word:

Trump.

Stoap bein a wee shairn ersed trumper an git oan wi it. You’re the new manifestation o Faither Time, yiv nae choice but tae see the new year oot, mal or braw.

Dae yir duty an tak yer turn an serve wi mense an decorum an try no tae be be a snottering bairn like ye are noo, when yer reckoning comes.

I’ve din mine as hiv uncoonted numbers afore me, an noo it’s yoor turn.

Translation:

trump: cheat, deceive.

Stop being a small poop bottomed cheater and get on with it. You are the new manifestation of Father Time, you have no choice but to see the new year out, bad or good.

Do your duty and take your turn and serve with honour and decorum and try not to be be a sniveling baby like you are now, when your reckoning comes.

I have done my turn as have uncounted numbers before me and now it is your turn.

trʌmp

It really is.

Trump is a real Scots word and its meaning is as it says it is. Trumper means nonsense or rubbish and trumphery means trash or rubbish.

These meanings are taken from Chambers’ The CONCISE SCOTS DICTIONARY, a comprehensive one-volume dictionary of the Scots language, published by Aberdeen University Press November 1985 ISBN 0-08-028491-4.

Similar meaning are found in Chambers’s SCOTS DICTIONARY published by W & R Chambers Ltd, compiled by Alexander Warrack MA Edinburgh University in the 1968 reprint of the 1911 edition.

Another meaning for the word trump is a thing that is of small value. Scottish words are wonderful. No relationship to anyone living or dead or of Scottish descent is intended.
