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?
bbc r4 Saturday afternoon after the one o’clock lunchtime news treats us to ‘Any Questions’ followed by ‘Any Answers’ where old people ring in to ramble on. Yet here I am also participating as listener audience and as yet do not want to be lumped together with batty old … etc.
One of the half dozen questions was regarding trumps recently announced visit to Britain for the D-day memorial events; trump whether we like it or not is President of the USA our closest ally at that time.
What no-one mentioned is that post-Brexit we will do trade deals with anyone and everyone that will shake hands and agree to do so. Its called ‘backs against the wall’ Britain and therefore we will do trade deals with all and sundry just to glean a semblance of hope. You can wave goodbye to any form of UK motor industry and the multivarious supply chain. Which side of a 100k jobs in that industry alone?
What no one mentioned despite the endless ‘worthy’ hot air was that Pres Bone Spurs couldn’t even get his backside out of a hotel room, unglue himself from the tv / twitter and attend a pre-planned ceremony at a cemetary of American war dead a few months ago. Drizzle or a little bit of wet would seem to scupper his attendance; if perhaps Pres Bone Spurs did not have so contrived a ‘hairdo’ he could do what other men would have found to be no problem whatsoever.
What no one mentioned is the disgust we feel in the Free World that trump has deliberately taken such a regressive dark turn to dismantle and wreck all that was built up as ‘good’ for his country. Maybe that needs qualification, he resides in the USA and has endeavoured to pay as little tax as possible ie falsification, schemes, inflated values contrasting reduced values to grossly inflated when it suited him, etc etc. Yet one wonders what is his real country of residence … Russia?
…and what no-one mentioned is that trump is merely a short term fly in the ointment of what is otherwise a close cordial relationship that will continue far beyond any memory of things Trumpian.
What no-one mentioned when citing the past visit of Xi Jin Ping 习近平 (tones 2,4,2 something even the bbc is clueless about) … is that the Xi2 is endeavouring to modernise, to reach forward to universal world values, to do better, is doing better when viewed in modern Chinese history whereas trump is hell bent at going in a backwards direction and inciting unease, anxiety, hatred and polarising any and all caste, creed, religion. His moslem ban is stupid beyond belief, stupid beyond belief sort of sums him up. Remember trumps obscene tax handbacks to the already super-wealthy. In trumps world the bigot reigns supreme! So any comparison with X2i jin4 ping2 and trump is not clear cut, one aims higher, the other wrecks and regresses endlessly, of poor intention; therefore the latter is undesirable, toxic, unwelcome.
trumps manner is to never allow anything other than the glibbest shallowest platitudes with other World Leaders or the Free Press apart of course from in depth briefing sessions from his Master ie two hours unscripted with Putin in Helsinki, no minutes taken or even allowed, no other person of western heritage or US Official allowed. Wow – you cannot get creepier than that, it is what it looks like, it is treason and only trump himself so brass-faced and thinking himself above any law whatsoever would have had the gall to attempt such a shameful exhibition of treachery. Hence a fifteen minute walk-out with Kju and a huge banquet gone to waste, as all scripted by his Master so that Putin can sweep in, wipe up and gain influence.
So therefore I consider the bbc r4 ‘Any Questions’ invited panel to have made serious omissions in regarding trump and the dreaded visit. Lots of pontificating but they didn’t get to the main moral and ethical arguament. Basically the baseline is that trump is repulsive.
It baffled me later in the day on extended news when we had a few words from a pundit telling us how popular trump is, how great his base in America, this I doubt; bbc r4 news bias always endeavours to bend any objective truth to trumps advantage, luckily ‘The World Tonight’ programme at 10pm is a little bit more realistic.
worthwhile wiki entry below, even this does not realise the essential nature of tone marking for anything Mandarin, without tone markings meaning is lost, is unreadable and cannot be spoken as intended, its basic stuff! …
The dreadful nastiness of donald j trump now needs to be reined in. His intent is clear and he represents a regressive mindset far worse than anything visualised as ‘the swamp’. trumps downward spiral needs to now be reined in, for decency to be pressed upon him and his unsuitability for high office made clear. However today we read trump and his tweets are getting most unpleasant, sinking to lower depths of ignorance…
Ilhan Omar, isn’t she lovely, its in her face! Likewise with AOC, these are valuable and much needed people.
Some of the nicest people I’ve ever met are Moslem and Pakistani. To berate such people is silly trending toward sick. Offenders such as trump and I guess Stephen Miller and others in the creaking decrepit wagon called the White House have most evidently inadequete and shrivelled cold hearts, their paucity of human compassion is deplorable. It also indicates they seem to have read so little, never sampled the world at large as from the printed page; their minds and hearts have never got out of first gear. As with all con artists, fantasists and bluff merchants anything other than a ten second bar-room soundbite is beyond them. Nothing wrong with such brevity in its self among ordinary folk but not fit for a President.
We know for instance trumps only reading of a serious newspaper is to work across the page with his bigboy marker to see how many times his name appears, theres no comprehension, no insight, no learning. The racists such as we see attaching themselves to the trump bunker and to trump himself are narrow and cold, certainly lacking in completeness as civilised humans. Perhaps their own guilt and shame fuels at lashing out at others they perceive as different, after all trump has quite happily mocked the handicapped. With climate change ahead we haven’t time for this nonsense. trump is immature, always was and is ignorant, always was.
Little better than a snot-nosed playground bully from the backward class.
I see a great similarity with Mao and trump, both were determined to establish chaos and set people against each other. And Mao of course just like trump in his ignorance could never accept the notion he had made a mistake, or did not understand practical reality, both are highly impractical. Likewise, Mao and trump will so quickly turn against a previously devoted member of staff. The similarities of Mao and trump are quite uncanny.
Its quite accurate to compare Mao and trump as alike …
insulated from reality.
impractical in the extreme, Mao was extraordinarilly impractical.
endlessly creating chaos, delighting in chaos.
turning upside down established practices and customs.
secretive, above the common masses as if breathing rarified air.
hidden schemes and projects.
brazen, capable of violence, no compassion, much like trumps beloved sharks.
thinking only of themselves.
knowing how to manipulate/control media, to create a cult, to create fear.
can do no wrong.
will easily drop and destroy anyone that served them.
deliberately sets person against person.
its trump / Mao they serve, not the nation.
experts are ignored.
sycophants promote absurd non-truths and their masters ignorance zealously.
Russias influence on 1950’s and 1960’s China has never been fully revealed… just as with trump!
