He Said, Xi Said

More Exciting News From Trump HQ!

Whatever news this morning that is not about Poppy Bush is about Comrade Stupid’s success in Argentina, where he did nothing, except wander away during a photoshoot and cancelled a press conference out of his great admiration and respect for the Bushes.

No one bothers to ask how many cars China imports… we’re guessing, oh, perhaps ZERO.

Axios morning email thingie (“Presented by Boeing”)  tells us:

The 90-day U.S.-China ceasefire over tariffs was greeted with relief by businesses around the world as the two largest economies eased concerns over a possible new Cold War.

Tiger Beat on the Potomac morning email thingie:

“As he crisscrossed Buenos Aires, posing for photos with dignitaries and boasting about his accomplishments, Trump left behind a trail of exaggerations meant to paper over the fractious first half of his term and rebrand himself as a globe-trotting statesman. It’s the Art of the G-20, by Donald Trump. The 45th president is writing his own rulebook on how to claim credit and respect on an international stage where many leaders have looked down on him for years.

The very appropriately named David Dollar(!) at the Brookings Institute:  

“If the econ­omy slows down, it’s very un­likely U.S. will ever ratchet up tar­iffs. But if the U.S. econ­omy is roar­ing and the ne­go­ti­a­tions are especially frustrating, 90 days from now we could be headed into a se­ri­ous trade war.”

And in related news, Poppy Bush is still dead.

  1. Yes, I swear to fucking Dog that the headline was practically ‘Trump becomes predenshul!!’ in my morning paper:

    ANALYSIS: A new Trump? Restraint and respect at G20
    By Catherine Lucey and Zeke Miller THE ASSOCIATED PRESS”

    And it contains this gem of ‘ objective reporting press-release stenography’:

    Trump also showed control when word came during the summit of Bush’s death. While Trump has struggled to strike the right tone during moments of national loss, he sought to meet this one with grace.

    He followed the scripted playbook for the state funeral, swiftly declared a day of national mourning and ordered American flags to be flown at half-staff for 30 days.

    He could literally follow a script, and say nice things about a former President OF HIS OWN PARTY!

      Well he didn’t shit in the punchbowl, push anyone out of the way for a photo-op or pick a fight with everyone.

      Although for a while there it looked like he was going to make a scene when prince bone-saw and putin were palling around. (I’m pretty sure they knew their public displays of affection were breaking his heart. That’s why they did it.)

      Let’s just hope someone in the admin talked to China before Trump started playing pop-the-mushroom.

      (Forgive me. I’ve been up since 2:00 AM and I am well caffeinated.)

    When I saw the video of FatNixon sitting on his ass, tapping his forearm, ignored by real leaders who had the energy to walk around, the first word that came to mind was “presidential.”

    RIP Poppy Bush. And not to leave anyone out……….RIP Lamestream Media.
    Gotta go – don’t wanna be late for my job interview………..as a car salesman for the new American Import Car Co. of China. Good thing I have that new app; you know, the one that converts Ameros into Yuans. Also known as “Kuais.”

    “The basic unit is the yuan (also known as “kuai”), which equals 10 jiao (or “mao”), which is then divided into 10 fen. Paper currency comes in 1.2,5,10,50 and 100 yuan notes. Paper jiao come in denominations of 1, 2, and 5.” (Which is why I need that app. It’s all nickels and dimes, really.)

    Betcha didn’t know that. [www.chinahighlights.com/travelguide/moneyconverter.htm]

    And Trump wasn’t restrained or showing new presidential calmness. He’s scared shitless. He was distracted and unfocused because the Mueller investigation is hanging over him, MBS and Putin were buddy-buddy right in front of him, and the House will be serving subpoenas in a month and a half.

    I’m surprised he showed up at all.

    Doubtless the Chinese, who have been practicing diplomacy with tough rivals for centuries with considerable success, ran rings around the Gropenfuehrer.
