Tired of So Much Winning Yet?

What all of America is asking Trump.

I’m old enough to remember when Comrade Trump claimed that the nuclear deal with Iran was the worst deal ever, and if he was prznint, well, the deal would be thrown out and a new deal would be so much better. Let’s look at what led to Comrade Trump’s ALL-CAPS MELTDOWN!

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani knew an anti-Iran speech was coming from Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, so he warned that the world, “must understand that war with Iran is the mother of all wars and peace with Iran is the mother of all peace.” Rouhani also said: “Do not play with the lion’s tail, because you will regret it eternally.”

And thus the stage was set for when Pompeo, you know, threw fissionable material on the fire:

“The level of corruption and wealth among regime leaders shows that Iran is run by something that resembles the mafia more than a government. These hypocritical holy men have devised all kinds of crooked schemes to become some of the wealthiest men on Earth while their people suffer.” — US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo

…which led to:

Let’s recap:

A vague promise to get rid of North Korea’s nuclear weapons is acceptable while a specific agreement that precludes Iran’s nuclear weapons is not.

But the press is no longer talking about the Hellmouth in Helsinki.

So, you know, we got that working for us.

    Don’t know how to do strikeouts…anyway, fixed it for you.

      In this format, strikeouts work with an ‘s’ inside the leading bracket (those pointy ones, < and >) and then an ‘/s’ inside the trailing brackets. Also works for bold (b), italics (i) and blockquote (blockquote). I think it blanks out text unless you hover if you use spoiler (spoiler)
      Your way made the point, though, and totally agree. It’s another case of projection. I suppose they will come up with someone ‘sucking up to a foreign and hostile leader’ pretty soon – right now it is too close to Helsinki.

    Yep, I think I said that if the Helsinki shitshow was not on page one above the fold in a week, he’d get away with it.
    It’s been exactly a week, and it’s not, so he has.

    Another test, then: If his rage tweets at Iran are not on the front page a week from now, and are replaced by the outrage du jour, he’ll get away with this too.
    Oh, and we still have children in cages (and in courtrooms with no lawyer) with no fucking clue who they belong to. Been a while since that was on page one too, eh?

    And let’s not lose sight of the fact that he’s reminding us all that there are plenty of distractions left in his bag of tricks, including a full-blown shooting war.
    We are all clear that there are no limits at all, no depths to which this guy will not sink, no havoc he will not wreak, nothing he will not destroy, as he attempts to prevent himself appearing as “a loser”, right?
    Right?

    Pretty sure most scissorheads get that, but the Dems’ leadership sure doesn’t appear to, and the media remains as clueless as ever as they continue to flail in reactive mode as they chase every new shiny object.

      9K –

      I think that the record shows you are right. Each week and new outrage shoves the previous week’s outrage off the front page. It is a failing of the media, without a doubt.

      That said, I still do not think we have enough evidence of your unifying theory that Comrade Trump is executing to a plan to become Prznint For Life, and not just chaos personified. That said it might be a difference without distinction.

      I do think that the evidence is building that he was put in place by the Russians (whether he knew about it or not) to destabilize the west. Putin is the one with a plan, not Trump.

        I agree with TG. 45 is to most likely to chase after the next shiny object, or Ivanka-look-alike-if-you-squint hooker.

        Putin is smart. Putin is dangerous. The MHSG is a fool, and an immature loudmouth.

        Unfortunately our media and American culture allows the next shiny object to rule our world.

        I think we’re all on just about the same page.
        I’m not arguing that Trump has some 5 dimensional chess moves in his head about becoming prez for ever, clearly he doesn’t have the mental horsepower for anything like that.
        Putin might, and that he’s been looking for a foothold to destabilize the west since forever is not debatable. And obviously he’s basically Trump’s handler at this point,

        I will argue, however, that Trump’s preternatural carnival barker talents, working in harness with his no-limits vindictiveness and mendacity, while rendering him a caricature of buffoonery internationally, also make him dangerously effective and easy to underestimate here, in the current squalid dynamics now bedeviling US domestic politics.

        Getting rid of him is going to be no easy task. He’s not Nixon and isn’t going to just resign then wave to us from the steps of Marine One. He’s going to throw every kitchen sink he can find, and presidents have a lot of kitchen sinks available.

        And then subsequently, preventing Trump v2.0 (and whoever that is will have learned from Trump’s shortcomings) from emerging out of the very deep theocratic/AynRandian bench that is today’s GOP is going to be even more difficult.

        Trump is the stupid mans idea of a smart man, and the poor mans idea of a rich man.

        You’re far from stupid, 9k. The people you’re hanging around with are a bad influence.

        Trump knows how to do two things: appealing to people who would put a squirrel down their own pants for the purpose of gambling, and shouting louder than the other person.

        Please note wiping his ass isn’t on the list. Nor is lying.

        Multidimensional dimensional chess may be a thing for some of his cronies, definitely for Bolton and Putin, probably for pence, but I question trumps ability to count to five without using his fingers. And he might need both hands.

        Hmm… I shouldn’t have had that third cup of coffee.

        Goodnight, Gracie.
