Enough Traveling for Trump 

It’s not difficult to surmise Donald Trump’s first foreign trip was another attempt to distract the public from the ongoing Russia/Trump investigation. Regardless of his many attempts to obstruct the investigation it has picked up considerable steam since his firing of FBI Director James Comey on May 09. Sorry, the trip didn’t change that.Trump’s trip abroad has had an impact of a different kind. He has proven himself as a bigger embarrassment to the United States abroad than he is at home. His behavior takes the “Ugly American” stereotype up a notch. His arrogance, his ignorance, his overly agressive handshakes, his inappropriate grins confirm what people around the world already knew, Trump is a buffoon. 

The trip was well documented: FLOTUS swiping away Trump’s hand…twice, his stupidity regarding the Middle East, Ivanka and Jared booed by a crowd in Rome, Anti-Trump Protests in Brussels. 

One particular incident caught on tape stands apart from the rest. When NATO leaders were taking a tour of the Alliance’s new headquarters, Trump shoved aside the Prime Minister of Montenegro to take a spot front and center. 

What the hell was that? Did Trump single out Prime Minister Dusko Markovic of Montenegro as a nod to Vladimir Putin? Montenegro is the 29th country to join the NATO alliance, and this was their first summit. Putin wasn’t pleased. He had gone so far as to plot an assassination of the previous prime minister in order to keep Montenegro from joining NATO. He had further plans to hand pick the replacement with someone he could control. Russia of course denies these allegations. 

Trump bullying Markovic was another blatant display of his loyalty to Putin, who would love to see the dissolution of NATO and the strength numbers it provides to it’s members. 

If Trump isn’t planning to seek asylum in order to avoid impeachment, then it’s time for him to come home so the process can begin. 

Trump: Your Secrets about ___, ___, and ____ are Safe With Me…Did Everyone Get That?

First…well actually not first, but one of the more recent bonehead treasonous moves Donald Trump made last week was when he held a meeting in the Oval Office with Russian operatives and shared highly classified information with them. 

That move was either dangerous and traitorous, or it was dangerous and stupid. As dangerous as it was, we have learned from past experience with Trump that it can always be worse. 

Dumb met dumber and birthed an orange inheritance moron with foot in mouth disease and named him Donald. I believe junior was deprived of oxygen a little longer than necessary because when he was born the doctor slapped his mother. (Old joke, but it actually might have happened in this case.)

Today President Donald Trump met in Israel with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and announced to the press: 

“I never mentioned the word or the name Israel” during Oval Office meeting with Russians. I NEVER SHARED INFO THAT WE GOT FROM ISRAEL.”

Okay, no one said you did jackass. 
Verbally clumsy oaf Donald Trump implicated Israel as the source of U.S. intelligence with his statement today. 

It would not be surprising to find other countries refraining from sharing intelligence in the future, because Donald Trump is like that friend who just can not keep a secret. If you retain the friendship, it’s arms length…but the safest course of action would be to set them adrift.

Reading the News, So You Don’t Have To

Lately I’m torn between needing a day off from politics, and sitting on the edge of my seat waiting for the next thing. The next thing is always only a few hours away, which adds a high level of anticipation to my news addiction. Donald Trump has turned me into a backseat political analyst. But I don’t do this for myself, I read the news so you don’t have to. This is a free service I offer to society…because I am a humanitarian.
Today I scan through the news and find Trump’s first trip outside his bubble: to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Vatican City, Brussels, and Sicily. That story is battling with impeachment speculation for top spot today. 


As far as said trip, the most prevalent theme is “don’t do anything stupid.” Everyone is offering up their own version of the same advise: Don’t talk about crowd size, don’t talk about the Koran, don’t grab any female genitalia, in fact don’t go. If you must go, don’t open your mouth, and don’t move your arms. Ugh- this is our representation. No wonder the world hates America. Thanks Vlad, nice choice. 
Trump has extricated Melania from her New York Tower for this trip. The Jared the Ivanka are also along to distract from the oaf. Maybe Ivanka will offer sales contracts on Ivanka Hijabs (made by children in China) to be sold with a copy of her new book “How to Be Like I Want You to Believe I Am”…or something like that. 
By the way neither Trump woman covered their head in Saudi Arabia. More hypocrisy from the man who criticized Michelle Obama for the same offense. “Many people are saying” f*ck you Donald Trump. —they are.

On a side note, NPR has interesting results from their latest poll. It shows how devided we are as a country in what we believe our priorities should be with our foreign policies: selfless humanitarianism, or materialistic greed. Don’t let my granola breath influence you, but come on Republicans!

There is also speculation in the news today, or hope, that Trump will seek political asylum somewhere and never return the U.S., in order to avoid his imminent impeachment and prison time. We won’t be so lucky. 
Meanwhile back on the ranch, Mike Pence is scrambling to appear as if he had nothing to do with the Russia scandal. He was kept in the dark about Flynn, and in spite of the fact that half the country knew what was happening, he did not…no, really. He is also raising money for a 2020 presidential run. So in other words, he is too stupid to have seen the writing on the wall, but he’s presidential material? Me thinks you can’t have it both ways. Pence is on the list of likely impeachables. (new word) 

Okay, that’s it for me…I can’t stand any more. There is a day to have. Happy Saturday!

If I Were A Secret Memo

Another uneventful day in the life and times of Donald Trump. Not much to say other than:

Congressman Democratic Rep. Al Green of Texas called for the impeachment of President Donald Trump Wednesday. 

It’s been a long, a long time coming, but I know a change gonna come, yes it will…

It is much too soon to flush, but good to know someone finally got off the proverbial pot.

There was something else…

Comey’s—Secret—Memos—muahaha

If this were a movie, we’d be at the point when it finally looks like the good guys outsmarted the villain, and the villain cannot recover. If I were a secret memo what would I say?… 

  • “Today he told me to drop the Flynn investigation.” 
  • “Today he wanted me to pledge loyalty.” 
  • “Today he asked me to speak to him only in Russian.” 

When I want to feel hopeful I turn to Twitter 

As an investigative reporter with reliable sources Louise Mensch offers up Trump tidbits that very often prove correct. Today her word is Comey knew he was on his way out and prepared not only by leaving a paper trail of secret memos, but he also left a digital trail on his primary work computers. 

Comey’s computers were fitted with software which allowed the Justice Department to see if, how, and when they were illegally accessed…which they were almost immediately after he was dismissed. Comey’s data was copied onto removable media and given to Russian Diplomats…like the ones who met in the Oval Office the following day…when trump divulged highly classified information…to Russian Diplomats. I guess this has proven true, since a copy of Comey’s entire file was recovered. 

One last item before I rest my thumbs:

**Note the Apple Watch on his wrist. 

House oversight panel chairman Jason give up your iPhone if you want health insurance Chaffetz is resigning from Congress due to an Ethics Complaint. Estimated departure date – June 30. 

Buh bye Jason

Schizophrenic Russian Hysteria— Not Covered 

Russian President Vladimir Putin is willing to turn over his “records” of the recent Oval Office meeting between Donald Trump and senior Russian diplomats. 

“If the U.S. administration finds this appropriate, we’re ready to provide a record of the conversation between Lavrov and Trump to the U.S. Senate and Congress,” ~Vladimir Putin

Hmm…he has a “record” of the Oval Office meeting— between Trump and Russian foreign minister, Sergey V. Lavrov and Moscow’s ambassador to Washington, Sergey I. Kislyak—the meeting photographed by the Russian press, but banned to America press— the meeting when trump disclosed highly classified intelligence to a hostile foreign government— yes that meeting…he has records of it. And this is supposed to ease our minds of any concerns.  

Putin went on to say— Trump’s foes in the U.S. “don’t understand the damage they’re doing to their own country, in which case they are simply stupid, or they understand everything, in which case they are dangerous and corrupt. It’s hard to imagine what else can these people who generate such nonsense and rubbish dream up next.” 

Yes Vladimir, Russia is the victim of a “Russophobic hysteria” that is gripping the political establishment. I believe “Russiaphobic Hysteria” is a preexisting condition dating back to WWII, it won’t be covered under the GOP health plan. So what I’m saying is—get use to it.

 

Poor misunderstood naked horseback riding former KGB agent, now Russian President Putin who made Donald Trump POTUS 45. Russia is not happy to witness good friend Donald Trump suffering at the hands of a “politically schizophrenic” government. I would say political schizophrenia falls into the category of mental health… also not covered. Maybe get use to that too.

Can we all just stop paying attention to the man behind the curtain and go about our business so Russia can get on with governing America? What could be the harm in that? 

As former FBI special agent said:

“Follow the trail of dead Russians.” ~ Clint Watts

We have reached the precipice of this crisis.  The Trump family has reportedly been playing a shell game with their money since the May 9th firing of Comey. 25 sealed indictments are supposedly ready to be served, so what’s the hold up? It’s time to take the big step.

Fealty to Laird McDonaldTrump

Last week we learned something telling about Donald Trump. Like an orange unkilted (thank God), Scottish Warlord demanding fealty from his clansmen, Trump demands a pledge of loyalty from those surrounding him. He only retains yes-men who fit into his orange tinted bubble. 

 https://youtu.be/E5BUUrps_2E

Providing loyalty yesterday in response to Trump’s latest fiasco was US National Security Advisor H.R McMaster. He provided a carefully worded denial to the story that Trump revealed highly classified information about the Islamic State to the Russian foreign minister.

“The story that came out tonight as reported, is false, the president and the foreign minister reviewed a range of common threats to our two countries including threats to civil aviation. At no time, at no time, were intelligence sources or methods discussed. And the president did not disclose any military operations that were not already publicly known.”

“Two other senior officials who were present, including the secretary of state, remember the meeting the same way and have said so. Their on-the-record account should outweigh those of anonymous sources.”

“And I was in the room, it didn’t happen,” he concluded. “Thanks everybody.”

A problem with surrounding yourself with yes-men and Russophiles is—when one provides an alibi it doesn’t wash down. This one is stuck in my throat. Rex Tillerson is Putin’s Oil bitch, and he isn’t in the photos that were taken during the meeting in question. Unless he is employed with Russia in a second capacity, as official Kremlin photographer for White House Meetings, and took the pictures, I don’t believe he was in the room…Mr McMaster isn’t photographed either.


But, for as much as Trump lies, and asks others to lie, he isn’t good at it. You have to stick with the story Donald. 

Shaking my head. What will be the fallout? It would seem the entire GOP has pledged their fealty to Laird McTrump. They have no qualms in looking the other way. They’ll all hide in the hydrangeas until the next typhoon. It is sure to blow in soon, they always do—then this will be just one of the many events that led to the end of Clan McTrump.
