Miguel Arias Cañete, who is the European Union’s Commissioner for Climate Action and Energy, told us that the White House “will not renegotiate the Paris accord, but they will try to review the terms on which they could be engaged under this agreement.”
Trump’s Fourth Reich counter-punched, and said that is FAKE NEWS!!1!
But is it? The construction of Cañete’s statement sounds very, um, Trumpian. Essentially, “Ok, we’re staying in the agreement, but we’re doing it on OUR terms.” (and we should add, “LOSER!” to that.) We’ve seen this before.
Let’s examine some recent examples.
- Two weeks ago, Hair Führer announced he was ending DACA.
Then he tried to save it with Nancy and Chuck, and got nothing other than some slight funding for border security (that they probably would have given anyway). No wall, no tax cuts, no repeal of Obamacare. What a LOSER!
- About a month ago our Commander-in-Cheat declared that trans people would be banned from the military, effective immediately.
On Saturday, the DOD announced that trans-soldiers will be allowed to re-enlist, you know, while they are studying the matter.
So you can take it to the bank that this is a lot of spin. Or as my pal Bill once said:
It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
This is what Mr. Art-of-the-Deal’s mad negotiation skillz looks like: impulsive, stupid decisions, driven by his weird need to suck up to the popular kids, followed by a flip or a flop (depending) how the popular kids snub him.
Trump is not a leader, he is a middle school mean girl wannabe.
