Then and Now, Now and Then

Reminder: Do Not Use This Picture of Trump. Tell a friend. Let’s wipe out the usage of this picture in our lifetimes.

You know the drill: first we look at what someone said way back when, and then we compare it to what they are saying now:

First the Then:

…and now the Now:

From the WaPo:

 “The Chinese government said Saturday it will return a U.S. naval drone seized last week in the South China Sea, a step toward defusing maritime tensions between the two Pacific powers. President-elect Donald Trump reacted to the news by telling them he doesn’t want it back. ‘We should tell China that we don’t want the drone they stole back.- let them keep it!’ he tweeted Saturday evening. The comment could prolong one of the most serious incidents between the U.S. and Chinese militaries in recent memory, potentially complicating ties ahead of Trump’s inauguration.”

And now from the transcripts of This Week with a Greek Dwarf (Martha Raddatz sitting in the big, er, little chair):

MARTHA RADDATZ: “I want to just very quickly, if we can, on the drone that the Chinese took, and they’re apparently now returning. A day after Donald Trump tweeted his displeasure, Jason Miller from the Trump team tweeting, ‘Donald Trump gets it done. China says it will return U.S. drone it seized.’ And they say they return the drone … and then Donald Trump tweets, ‘Keep the drone.’ What’s going on there?”

WOOLSEY: “I don’t know. I can’t keep up with the tweets. I don’t do the social media myself, so who knows.”

RADDATZ: “OK, better start reading those Donald Trump tweets, then.”

He’s not yet sworn in and he’s already creating international incidents, AND our military doesn’t know what to do. Not that I know any better, but if I may suggest: our Intelligence Operations need to keep track of Hair Führer as if he were a domestic enemy and start a file.

We are so eff’ed in the dark.

    Trump hopes China will write off his loans in exchange for the drone. They won’t.

    If President Obama had any stones (Dog, why do I bother even finishing this sentence), he would work with his Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, and have a Logan Act (private citizens aren’t allowed to muck about in the U.S. foreign policy arena) violation charge lodged against private citizen Trump, and have the MFer perp marched in handcuffs out of Trump Towers TODAY, before the Electoral College votes tomorrow.

    A foreign Navy brazenly steals sensitive Navy equipment on the high seas and the response of the future Commander-in-Chief is, “Meh. Let’ em have it.”

    Not exactly John Paul Jones is it? Can you imagine the horror in the Pentagon hearing that statement?

    And Wharton must be so proud of this one: “We should tell China that we don’t want the drone they stole back.”

    We’ve seen Donald contradict himself in the same damn tweet. Tweets five years apart? Not a problem for our Donald.
