It bugs me such austere unthinking regression that openly thwarts clear thinking is number two at the White House. Its quite disturbing how such people have been lurking, waiting for their opportunity. Witness all the horribleness being rolled out under the name of the so-called trump ‘administration’. Thank goodness for free journalism that can slog the long hours to call attention to the bigotry and skewed thinking of the trump / pence cavalcade.
Well done John Oliver to poke away at the Principal Eunuch aka Mike Pence and shed light on this smiling fool.
As I’ve said all along its all a ‘Medicine Show’, a presentation, a wafer thin effect at soundbite and momentary image. Education, history, depth and ability all sadly cast aside, the covert behind the scenes influence of aged old white men and ego and greed rules the roost for the time being.
Most certainly a slithering low brow performance as only rump seems capable. Here he is playing the part of voicing what he thinks is the ‘regular guys’ concerns, in other words conning to get votes. Can you see, in fact he is mocking his target audience. All those years of reality tv experience have created this monster and his equally slick but oh so photogenic daughter.
It baffles me that anyone can be taken in by this makeshift pasteboard con-man.
As with most of what trump says of others he is in fact the worst culprit.
This is the repulsive face of racism and would be wannabe white supremacy.
What is it quite that they want ?
How did we allow such low-grade f-listers to order around the media, to dictate and be unanswerable? Of course they are unanswerable, their hidden agenda from day one has been to trash the media, the pillar of free thought; of the right to place questions and ask for accountability, to expect an honest civil reply from someone of at least average ability and decent ethics.
Fascism plain and simple.
I’ve said before, I shudder to think what crooked, skewed and bigoted conversations occur behind closed doors at the trump White House.
… oops sorry to offend any cretin. But its true, trumps many chaos, many denials are near beyond number.
Yes you had porn stars and paid them off even though dollar bills were never requested, never required.
Yes you ring hapless contractors and offer them cents on the dollar.
Yes. you steam roller through to bypass any semblance of paying a tax bill or accurate and honest accounting.
trump is quite hapless, the kid that never did homework, sailed along on ‘front’ and brazen disregard.
My particular axe to grind tonight is his breathtakingly pathetic performance at G20 re climate change.
As usual a few ignorant and off target remarks and trump thinks, fools himself he ‘has it in the can’. Here in the north east of England we would call him ‘donnard’. It means stupid, dim, irrelevant, thick, of catastrophic bad performance; pretty well sums up the whole White House pantomime and its sick tired entourage. His baseless tissue thin platitudes surely can not still fool anyone?
Heres a useful succinct resume as what we are up against with the idiocy of trump; remember, his only qualification is a reality tv show of low merit.
postscript; I am most certainly critical because the nonsense we see and hear and the divisive low brow garbage Presidency of donald j trump can not be allowed to develop into mainstream and accepted as ‘normal’. It is not normal in any shape or form to wreck, sow fear and anxiety, to deride ordinary people, to alter and manipulate impressions, views, free speech ie his achingly tiresome attack of the Free Press.
The man is useless. The photo-op (as with KJU NK) is quite shallow and basically pointless, but KJU loves all of this, propelled from hardly of importance to worldwide coverage. trump feeds the world his photo-op lead story nonsense knowing fine well theres endless appetite for his trivia, this unthinking tissue thin nonsense. This obscures a more critical debate or recognition of the dismantling and regressive backward motion of his Presidency. Witness EPA, Universities etc being told to not mention climate change or even accept such peril is at hand. This to my mind is a War Crime.
Heres a useful precis of the idiocy and hopelessness of a latter day Wizard of Oz, puffing and grunting but actually quite hopeless …
I suggest for instance … Ignorance of “liberal democracy” from the above where trump is hopelessy unable to understand what is actually meant by ‘western liberal democracy’ and thinks in his usual pointless wordsalad response that it is states out west run by LBGT enthusiasts that he is required to comment upon.
soundbite soundbite soundbite …
Vast swathes of ‘ornery folk have forgotten theres a thing called books, of knowledge, precedent, history, depth and learning.
I’d like to think it was ‘nothing’ but contrary to his outward dumbed down ‘tv’ persona trump can indeed do ‘thinking’ … nasty thinking too.
Theres lots of others too that aid trump in his thinking, both on and off payroll. Hence the value of Mar-a-Lago for such covert lobbying.
There are two reasons for trumps visit, high quality footage of a prestige event and to circle around our camp in the desire to dump USA agricultural produce that falls way below our standards of husbandry and welfare. The lies and fog of obscuration from trump- KAC- Huckabee Sanders etc are endless, trump telling us yesterday that his regime has the cleanest air and water, the highest climate standards. Akin to saying ‘black is white; up is down, left is right’ … dictums I remember are available from George Orwell eighty years ago, how prescient!
Listen to trump on audio without camera footage, its the same old endless vacuous ‘fill a minute’ audio that gets rolled out for any and every occasion. So maybe its a good idea we have him on our shores and can make him ‘stay put’ for a few minutes to listen to something from the real world, something from people that he ordinarily would never hear and how so very far removed from his con-man low IQ pretence and travelling all enveloping sycophantic entourage.
I expect great things from our Queen, Prince Charles, Theresa May in the prodding of his bubble of self-agrandising ignorance.
Worth listening to, to get a grip on how the world is prceeding and how trump it seems merely mimics other controversial leaders. The expert appears at 03:00 and helps shed light on where current dynamics and desires. Note again trump and his upside-down triangle, always the upside-down triangle.
We learn of a barrier / barbed wire at the southern border, of refugees in camps, threats, poor treatment, of controlling the press, of controlling the judiciary, all mirrored in trumps own Idiocracy. Who’s telling trump what other Fascists around the world he needs to meet and greet? After all, trump can hardly read a map, can hardly get to the second sentence in any briefing material. Therefore who is steering trump?
