I was going to use the title ‘What would a dick do … ” but maybe google frowns on such direct address … instead we can read the title Bill Maher at his best and hear how the Republicans or more accurately the twisted self interest of over-wealthy benefactors can turn the ear of what should be a democratic process; wow America is hijacked !!!
… 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.
My heart bleeds for America with the incompetence and inadequacy of trump steering them to longterm damage and the destruction of so many areas of life and work. Nancy Pelosi tells us she prays for trump, that his family need to “do something about him” … the trump we witness is pretty well the donald j trump that has always existed. Hopeless and always pretending.
America has been conned bigtime, taken in by a slick soundbite charm of a latter day snake-oil salesman. We should have known fine well that skills honed at a crummy reality tv show would circumvent any need knowledge, ability or experience. This is a so-called President functioning at the level of a ten year old. Making ones-self and ones rattle-bag regime hated around the world is not how civilisation was meant to progress.
Its also commonly thought that trump is deliberately destroying family owned and small / medium farm enterprises so that big corporations can wipe up at bargain basement prices. In fact this IS what will happen viewing current indicators.
And yet still its quite easy to encounter people that consider thisbuffoon called trump to be ‘the man’. In my opinion people are less educated than they have been since 1940 and trump and his hidden twisted backers play on this fact. Here in the UK bbc radio news (apart from ‘The World Tonight’ at 10pm) has been abysmal, quite pathetic in its refusal to portray trump as the world danger that he is. It seems that the more that media and tv is mass market the more likely it has dumbed down. Its easy here in the UK to find people every day that think trump is self made, trump is successful, trump is the leader that the USA needs etc etc …. this is both quite staggering and alarming in its misinformation.
However, the point of this post is the example of one of many fronts where trump is destroying established markets and established trust, ie soybean growers and their export markets namely China. trump will have no idea that crops have to be planted, of the massive outgoings only covered once the payments are received for agricultural produce sown, nurtured, ripened, harvested, stored, transported across the world and delivered, of contracts entered in to and honoured. Note the last word ie ‘honoured’ a very non-trumpian term. trump lives in a self invented bubble where offering 50c in the dollar to desperate creditors is ‘being clever’ !!! ‘The Art of the Deal’… more like ‘The Art of the Screw’! … and as is openly acknowledged trumps ghost-written book is in fact fiction.
Remember, a few billion to the farmers is nothing compared to the trillion handed back to the already super rich and the super slick.
trump is immoral, not to be trusted in any way whatsoever, a dysfunctional chaos, a blight, a pasteboard mask; it is chiefly the thing behind the mask I question and rail against.
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.
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.
Who would have thought merely developing yourself into a brand (tv reality, hotel branding, real estate, etc) would one day get you into the White House! As from his pal and mentor Roy Cohn ‘hit ’em hard’ and ‘go after them fifty times the force at which they criticise’. Yup, seems to be the modus operandi of the Assailant in Chief.
William Barr is serving the purpose he was installed for, to nueter the Mueller Report and hand over a totally inadaquete resume. I hope in time all will be revealed, the stink of trump and two hours alone with Putin in Helsinki is alone worthy of the charge of treason. Emerging, trump looked shaken.
I’m vexed hearing the Mueller Report has no real bite. trump himself admitted he doesn’t trust email and uses couriered envelopes for sensitive information in his business dealings. Far better look at his UPS / Fedex account! After all this time, the trumps now seem more fireproof than cld be imagined. We must remember there will be some very creepy old men pickled in wealth that know fine well they have a useful idiot installed, I shudder at what conversations occur behind closed doors, Putin too. He will bankrupt America just as he has bankrupted his own inherited wealth. Its so very ironic that a decade of tv skills have served trump and Ivanka so very well, as long as they can keep coming up with five second sound bites there will always be a third of the voting population that are hoodwinked; that seems to be the nature of ‘ornery folk. BBc r4 hourly news bulletins for instance and PM at 5pm always report trump in such an uncritical glowing light to the point of being most certainly misleading; any blind person relying solely on what should be high integrity news source wld have a totally false idea of what trump is up to. .
Three generations from brothel keeper to President.
trumps hatred of moslems is stupidity itself, trump is inciteful, destabilising, non-inclusive … likewise his denigration ppl of colour, and the southern border. He has no real education, no sense or knowledge of history – the human story, struggles with the printed word, has buried any school reports. Everything about trump is sham, ‘brag and front’, for the photo-op, for the soundbite. My opinion is that its climate change that trump fully realises (but will not admit) is the reason for his stubborn insistence on the wall. As typical with trump he says the opposite of what he really thinks and always his insults are most applicable to himself.
In my opinion the young people that form the caravan to the southern border are hungry to work, to better themselves; trumps beloved drug dealers and thugs he doesn’t seem to realise will move to and fro as they wish in their vehicles, not needing to walk. And i would think most immigrants will be only too pleased to pay the necessary taxes as required, to get a lucky break to start anew in the USA as has been the custom this last two hundred years.
trump is all about fascism, self interest, imagined superiority, all these things are repulsive.
