Donald (Bone Spurs) Trump, five time draft dodger, has recklessly threatened North Korea. They would be:
“met with fire and fury like the world has never seen.”
Dramatic flourish lifted from:
- Game of Thrones– “Ours is the fury!”
- The Witches in Macbeth–“Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn and cauldron bubble.”
- Harry Truman- “a rain of ruin from the air, the like of which has never been seen on this earth.”
Trump recited his irresponsible dramalogue from notes, with arms wrapped around himself defensively, like a child about to blow chunks of charred steak with ketchup…and beautiful chocolate cake. His body language tells us the man is a coward who knows he is in over his head.
What happened to his flailing arms? If you would like a refresher on Trump’s typical body language:
A blatant lie. Donald Trump has done nothing with regards to anything, let alone “renovate and modernize our nuclear arsenal.” It would take years to do so, and his North Korean brotha from anotha motha would know this from personal experience.
Is threatening North Korea smart?
- John McCain: “Trump is not helping the situation.”
- James Robert Clapper Jr.: “We need to have dialogue with them. But accept the fact they are a nuclear power.”
Trump is trying to distract us with fear…but from what?
Bloomberg Report— the Trump campaign turned over about 20,000 pages of documents on Aug. 2. Manafort provided about 400 pages on Aug. 2, including his foreign-advocacy filing, while Trump Jr. gave about 250 pages on Aug. 4. The committee had asked them last month to start producing the documents by Aug. 2. Manafort and Donald Junior’s day of reckoning is coming to a theater near you.
Clearly the documents they chose to hand over were not satisfactory, because today-
Washington Post: Aug. 9. The FBI conducted predawn raid of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort’s home. This under the direction of special counsel Robert S. Mueller, as part of the continuing investigation into Trump/Russia. They departed the home with various records.
The investigation into Trump and his associates’ crimes is moving more quickly now. Let’s not let fear distract us from what is really on Trump’s mind.
