Some say one man’s madness is another man’s strategy. Vanity Fair is calling it “Moron-gate,” except the dotard in the cupboard isn’t Donald Trump, it’s Rex Tillerson who takes the dunce cap for his flip, petty, slap at the President, by calling Trump a “moron,” for one thing, or another. If “Moron-in-Chief” becomes as quintessentially defining of President Trump as “Crooked Hillary” is of his nemesis, it’s on Tillerson.
The most famous two time presidential loser in U.S. history, Hillary Clinton, refuses to quietly go away. She remains bitter about losing to political novice Donald Trump in the 2016 election.
It was “a lovely visit, a first, too,” the President said. No doubt, Donald Trump was the first U.S. President to throw rolls of paper towels into a tepid crowd of puzzled people the way a low-rent concert promoter tosses out second act t-shirts. What made it even stranger was that Trump hefted them to victims of drenching hurricanes. Golf towels would’ve been a better choice, especially since Houston got very nice, hot-boxed lunches. Whoever stage-managed this inept trip needs to quit because they ruined another chance for Trump to look good again.
Remember that Liz Minelli powerful song in Cabaret when she sang, with the lights glowing behind her on stage, "Maybe This Time".
That emotional appeal suggesting that the world can suddenly come to a spinning change, whether it be luck, fortune or simply new facts.
The President dedicated a golf trophy on Sunday to the citizens of Texas, Florida, and the lazy, broke, infrastructure-challenged Puerto Ricans who want everyone to do everything for them. Devastated, homeless, foodless, waterless, powerless, and despairing, Donald Trump blamed them for their own woes in the same breath he used to praise himself for helping these American citizens. Would that this were true.
Ever since Friday night's Alabama speech, Donald Trump has had plenty to say about the American Flag, the National Anthem and the NFL disrespecting those great American symbols.
In fact, as of this writing, he has tweeted or retweeted about the issue 19 times. During that same period, not a single tweet about the likes of Puerto Rico which is an American territory and whose citizens are American citizens.
President Donald Trump’s irresistible impulse to take on everyone, and anyone, over anything, consequential or not, is a detriment to Republican values and leads to the inescapable question of whether Trumpism needs Trump, any longer, to advance its mission.
Is Donald going dotard or self-destructive?
Donald Trump against the nutty dictators, John McCain and the world has now become Donald Trump vs. nutty dictators, John McCain, the world plus now--the NFL and the NBA along, of course, with Hollywood?.
The "Ghost of Obamacare Repeal Failures of the Past" is returning, maybe.
Today, the long-respected Republican voice of the US Senate John McCauin of Arizona, has just delivered a significant blow to the latest attempt to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act and what might be a slight to his best friend, Lindsey Graham, one of the authors of the Graham Cassidy bill.
For the first eight months of his presidency, Donald Trump has been continually thwarted by a combination of the left wing media, the “deep state” bureaucracy, the Democrats and the establishment Republicans. On his own, President Trump has made dramatic and positive executive orders, but his legislative agenda has been disappointing due to the powerful forces arrayed against him.
Describing the Yalta Conference, FDR once said, “It is permitted in time of great danger to walk with the devil until you have crossed the bridge.” Held from February 4-11, 1945, the conference was convened by Roosevelt, Churchill, and Stalin to wrap up WWII in Europe. Almost from the start, Stalin ignored the agreement as he expanded Soviet influence over Eastern and Western Europe, precipitating a chillier kind of war.
One could expect that the Emmy’s would shoot at Hollywood’s favorite target Donald Trump, last night. But, did anyone anticipate that one of the President’s top protagonists would shoot at himself during the popular television show? That’s what essentially occurred Sunday night when former Press Secretary-interim Communications Director, played a cameo role as Saturday Night Live’s Melissa McCarthy, who shot to TV fame playing, of course, Spicer.
In a hectic world, millions of Americans enjoy the pastime of watching football on the weekends. It is a nice distraction from the pressures of everyday life. Unfortunately, it is becoming more difficult to just enjoy a game any longer as, sadly, politics has entered the world of sports in a big way. This season, NFL players are continuing to protest police brutality and racial discrimination by sitting, knelling or giving a “black power” salute during the National Anthem. This has infuriated patriotic Americans who view these protests as disrespectful toward their country. It is no doubt a contributing factor toward the declining ratings of the NFL this season.
“Progress Again!” Donald Trump can have the success he craves, and breach the mega-chasm of civil division afflicting the country if he becomes a Democrat. It would mean campaigning for Democratic Senate and House candidates next Fall, but he could do it. Chuck and Nancy would help, and the public would reward the new show with high ratings.
