Most certainly not suited to Public Office in any shape or form. His qualification of ‘The Art of the Deal’ as we now can see multiple times is ghost-written bluff, the twice fiasco with North Korea I hope and should be, never repeated. He is no Statesman whatsoever (an essential for any leader) and aligns with all the questionable regimes of the world. He was Kim jong Uns best publicity ever, his gateway to world media.
trump will now gloat on this neutered Mueller Report for years to come, shame upon William Barr for stooping so low, it will displace trumps previous obsession with crowd size. An obsession is a handy thing to a certain type of person, it displaces ‘having to think’ and can look as if one is talking / doing something when in fact its just so much recycled hot air. blah blah blah for the umpteenth time, the umpteenth month. But never mind, we all can see it coming, the whirring helicopter engine, the charade of urgency and busy-ness, drawing close his favourite and aligned media types.
What will be most telling in the weeks and months to come is how trump will attempt to goad and humiliate the Free Press. We will see him descend to levels of vitriol so far not displayed. This forthcoming behaviour will show us all what we need to know. The more he thrashes around the further down into the stinking barrel of filth he will descend. My analogy of trump with Mao I think quite accurate. You can show a picture of Mao to a twenty year old and some don’t even know who that is.
One thing is for sure, trump will never read it. Other than looking for his name on the first page bigboy marker in hand as far as trump is concerned its just so much waste-paper.
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!
NAST NASTY donald j trump who revels in cruelty, a toxic brew of ignorance and callous disregard. Theres lots of dirty over-moneyed numskulls behind him, I shudder to think what conversations occur behind closed doors. And yet the likes of Pence a ‘so-called’ Christian is of such low morals he tags along for the ride, his only chance to feel power on his lips. A pun for Pence … very definitely small change.
I think we need to brush up on our history, how dangerous it is to think the little people the ordinary can be bullied and herded along and we needn’t take notice, to not help them; as much like trump delights in wielding the power of Presidential Office toward a helpless better life seeking refugee we need to regard their feelings and consider kindly what it is they would prefer.
trump the utter fascist, the liar and trouble maker fantasist that he is needs to be recognised for what it is. trump is hellbent on creating imbalance and disharmony; ignorance developed to an artform, as artless as it is; very much the schoolboy bully / thug.
The skilfull gradation of his onslaught is indeed very clever, you cannot say ‘moron’ or idiot because he in his horrible trumpian way is very clever, a nastiness gone crazy, thrown to its limit. trump is inded dangerous, his deliberate denigration and assault on the Free Press, his courting of dictators and to promote all that insults developed society.
These people below were uncertain, bewildered and whimsically excused every insult and deprivation that was pushed onto them until it was too late. No-one should be forced to do anything in this world that they do not willingly desire.
Note the old woman above, an image that could be from eighty or eight hundred years ago.
Clueless in some respects, calculating nasty and cruel in others. To quote the Idiot in Charge … “They don’t put their best people in these caravans,” … we haven’t got the best ppl in the WH either, in fact the dregs, the utter dregs of wealth obsessed scum. Third rate reality tv does not make a statesman …. but it does hone skills and help become master of the five second soundbite, to act the part, to pretend.
trump is a case of self-promotion gone crazy. A shallow facile world of branding, hype gone mad, pretence, stand off … all the usual con man tricks and honed sharp from the endless evasion of creditors large and small.
‘I suspect thou art not a Christian’… to borrow a line from John Hustons 1953 film.
The planet is bent achingly under the threat of global warming, time is drastically short and this gold-plated turd would rather go golfing, cannot read slimmed down donnie-sized briefings and endlessly fools and cons his way through every day, aided and abetted by personnel without morals, without integrity and no shame.
Notice how nasty and vindictive and revengeful our rhetoric has become at the horrifying spectacle of a clowning bigot that can barely read hijacks a democracy; trump has proven himself many times over to be a wrecking ball.
trump is wasting our time.
Three generations from brothel keeper to president.
I hadn’t realised … maybe i am stupid … but also maybe google is excessively manipulating my search results, its clear from the just found embed below that trump is trading on cruelty and that a small but significant sector of the population are so fcked up and plain ‘ol retarded (downbeat, screwed, no hopers?) …. they latch onto this and feel better from it. Oh dear … low values have really taken over the roost.
Yes the cruelty thing stacks up as to what trump is about and what allows him to hang on to his White House tenure. Its as if every ‘hard done to’ bleeding self piteous numskull rolled into one ie trump has taken residence in both the White House and the nations no-hoper white imagined maligned psyche … that like velcro he gets his hangers-on. Messy sentence but conveys my point.
This Reuters piece sums up well the dreadful non-working mangle of broken government machine that trump and his cohorts have deliberately engendered and is insistent he will steer the USA to failure and bankruptcy.
In other words when trump flew around the word only to abandon his Kim J Un fiasco it hinged upon and consisted of a piece of paper handed for them to read. Fool Bolton a man far worse at his job than realised seems to be the so called ‘architect’ of this shallow whacky scheme. The first meeting previously was itself vacuous, pointless; merely a way over expensive photo-op… just exactly what would delight trump. And as is often the case with trump I think he didn’t know what he was getting himself into. His wisecrack brag and brave face served upo for yv soundbites and home territory rallies would not serve well though an interpreter. I think also KJU now thinks trump is beneath him.
This comes round to what I’ve said previously that trump in fact is doing the opposite of the words he utters. This is exactly what Noam Chomsky has been saying for years [however looking at Chomsky vids his attitude regard of Russia collusion is adamant its all a hoax, this i find baffling] … I wonder why Chomsky takes this view? Its like watching a burning building and remarking to a neighbour “I cannot see any fire”. Never mind; trump…
He tells the crowd “We will get tired of winning” … in fact the truth is the people of the USA will get sick of losing.
All the gains of sixty years are being dismantled.
trump rallies are hour long masturbatory gorge-fests, this week telling everyone how he “Loves the Great Lakes” …. in reality has probably never given them thought other than cut aid.
Fake – most applicable to himself.
Uses Ivanka and Jared as window dressing.
Dangerously intent on destabilising the Middle East. Witness Jeruselam, Golan Heights and sale of jet fighters to Taiwan.
trump is intent on disharmony and discord, to create tension and anger that could take generations to be resolved. Witness his hatred and denigration of anything Moslem. trump is clueless as to how we all live and ‘get along’ on this planet.
The swamp – if this can be described as callous disregard, how far can you abandon self respect, mimiking slithering ugly things covered in dirt only capable of behaving to ‘type’ and their refusal of truth and accuracy … no permanence, serving a ‘boss’ whatever at the White House with trump; or should we say what Russia has enabled; then trump has created his very own swamp.
In a swamp – the little things (the common people) have to survive best they can, niche and hidden trampled on if they don’t get out of the way… just how trump wants it.
Why does trump court dictators and those with abysmal Human Rights? Giving them attention gives them a move toward mainstream acceptance, this is deliberate by trump, he is drawn to them; much as his obsession with sharks.
trump he says of himself is a ‘regular guy’, nothing cld be further from the truth.
trump rallies are stage managed to the extreme, the backdrop of vetted faces, the shallow bar-room banter. Recently trump using the BS trigger word for ‘USA’ chants to kick in. Ouch !
Endless dumbing down by trump, the dismantling and the unseen forces behind him will take a lot of effort to rebuild, he is squandering financial assets / capital on a reckless scale, diverting funds to schemes that have no valid reason to be augmented (the wall) … the enemy of the environment and climate change.
Theres no such thing as fake news as trump would like us to believe, merely a fake stance and fake information as issued and repeated by the White House. trumps lie count is endless, thank goodness there is the Free Press to keep tally and reckoning.
trump is running very much on a skeleton crew, he disregards experience, education, knowledge (probably despises all these things) and is ignorant of ability and professional contribution.
trump exists for and lives by the five second sound-bite.
The border wall – its for climate change under the pretext of present day immigration. The drug villains and criminals will not be on foot slogging down a road ….. fool trump and fool his tiny base for believing such nonsense !
Tax and business valuations kept hidden, likewise any school or academic record.
trump can barely read, this alone should preclude him from anywhere near Government.
trump base is smaller than stated, as usual with trump is exagerrated.
There is no ‘Art of the Deal’ with trump …. its all BS.
trump says “I’ve nothing to hide” … therefore he must have lots to hide !
No collusion (therefore in perennial trump inverting mindset) .. then there must be collusion !
Two hours with Putin in Helsinki (and other meetings elsewhere) …. no minutes taken deliberately… this is in fact treason.
Note how trump cannot circulate or converse freely or constructively at his several attempts to attend world leader Summits and Conferences, yet with Putin his handler you can hardly prise them apart. Likewise at mar-a-lago his own domain, he greases along excellently, the latter is his own business; world leaders and all they represent are anathema to him.
So he looks to be doing nothing but in reality is a very dangerous destructive individual with lots of dark unseen backing. There is a more sophisticated mind at work, his constant harping at ‘fake news’ is corrosive, many gullible quick to react less advantaged jump in to join his populist tack. His is a ‘go nowhere’ mindset leading only to the suppression of ordinary populations and a moronic mindset of not questioning what is happening.
Its early days for the Mueller Report to present its facts as it is blocked by a four page Barr summary this is not utilising the Mueller material in a democratic manner. Everyone on the planet can see time and time again the Russia connection, Jareds desire for a back channel, phoney meetings, Russian money, two hours at Helsinki etc etc ….. to NOT be concerned would be disastrous. trump is the fool Putin needs to get out onto the world stage.
Heres a Guardian online quote …
But in Britain, we don’t have the bandwidth or the resolve or the understanding of the bigger picture to want to even try to understand this web of interconnected relationships. We stand by as Arron Banks and Nigel Farage ape Donald Trump. We remain incurious about the ties that connect them and the money behind them. We watch as they attack the press and seek to undermine our institutions.
People need to be stronger and stand up to trump, to make him explain his reasons for implementing / doing / or wanting such a course of action. He likes to talk, loves the camera so let him in his presidential expertise wander off script as he so much likes to do and make the effort (of which he will be seen to be incapable) of explaining as in one adult to another for what reasons, the ‘why and how’ of his endless crazy and destructive actions. He cannot.
further postscript: Years ago there was something called The House of Un-american Activities. I never would think they could be viewed in a positive light yet at what we are seeing with trump et al they would bust a gut at seeing what trump has done and is heading for. Even the slightest hint of even the first letter ‘R’ would send them into paroxysms of vindictiveness, cruelty and life altering and life destroying energy and anger. How things change!
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez speaks her conscience when many turn aside and would rather not voice any criticism. A fine incisive mind, that can detect crusty old nonsense, unthinking bigotry and perpetuated un-earned privelige from a great distance.
Anyone that has a small asteroid named after them has to be worth knowing !
This world and particularly America needs clarity of thought, to ask for actions to be justified, for people to be held accountable for misleading and less than honourable intentions. Its was a fine moment to witness AOC make it plain and clear when questioning Michael Cohen a few weeks ago that trump deliberately misled and knowingly falsified figures, knowing how it would increase his financial positon with phoney over-valued assets and property for insurances purposes and wifully undervalued assets by huge amounts so as to minimize and falsify his tax position.
Well done Alexandria for making this plain and clear to us all.
We need role models, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is an exemplary role model, donald j trump is not, yet the USA is saddled with him, literally saddled, he is riding America.
Thank goodness she is entering her prime, I extend my greatest heartfelt wishes to her continuing good work. A real person with real abilities and life experience, AOC majored in International Relations and Economics.
