The story line……

Trump Alone G20

I was the oldest of three children. I had a sister two years younger and another sister almost five years younger. My middle sister and I, being closer to the same age, played together while we ignored or “tortured” our younger sister. But like older siblings, if anything went wrong, if anything was broken we always placed the blame squarely on our younger sisters shoulders. She was always the most convenient villain.

If you haven’t noticed “our” President likes to have people and things to blame when he says or does stupid stuff. Apparently Trump is like Mary Poppins, “practically perfect in every way”.  I am sure I will miss a few but to date he has blamed, President Obama, Hillary Clinton, the Democrats, the Intelligence Community, and his favorite target the “Fake News” media.

I continue to be amazed at how people, American people, can continue to stand-up for and behind this man as the Russian story gets bigger, dirtier, and deeper and the cast of characters grows. No one other than Trump, Putin, and the translators know what these two men discussed for two hours. Each side has a story and then that story has a story depending on who was told what. In typical Trump fashion all of this “who said what”, “who agreed with who” could have been averted if other people had been involved in the meeting. But “our” President is “smarter than the average bear”, he knows what is best for you and I. Don’t you feel better? I know I do.

So after Trump’s less than stellar G20 Summit meeting, where once again he demonstrated his utter irrelevance to the other heads of state (the photo above tells the story) the main stream “fake news” media did what they would have done to any sitting President they dissected his every move and word. They picked and they prodded. Pretty common stuff. But we have an uncommon man in the White House. A man with an ego and thin-skin the likes we have never seen, maybe the world has never seen. A man who loves adulation, no thrives on adulation and anything and anyone who doesn’t worship the ground he walks-on is the enemy.

So as Trump as done in the past, he did a few thumb stretches and fired Twitter up. As I have stated before this would be funny if it weren’t so damn serious. A small sample of what “our” President has been thinking about after the G20 and what he has been watching on Fox & friends;

“I strongly pressed President Putin twice about Russian meddling in our election. He vehemently denied it. I’ve already given my opinion. We negotiated a ceasefire in parts of Syria which will save lives. Now it is time to move forward in working constructively with Russia!”        

“Putin & I discussed forming an impenetrable Cyber Security unit so that election hacking, & many other negative things, will be guarded and safe. Questions were asked about why the CIA & FBI had to ask the DNC 13 times for their SERVER, and were rejected, still don’t have it. Fake News said 17 intel agencies when actually 4 (had to apologize). Why did Obama do NOTHING when he had info before election?”

“Sanctions were not discussed at my meeting with President Putin. Nothing will be done until the Ukrainian & Syrian problems are solved!”

“The fact that President Putin and I discussed a Cyber Security unit doesn’t mean I think it can happen. It can’t-but a ceasefire can,& did!”

Re-post from James Wood. Don’t know who he is? He is an actor, maybe he played a President once in a movie I can’t remember but certainly a man “worthy” of being re-posted by the freaking President of the United States; “Only now with a #RealPresident do we see the scope of destruction engineered by #Obama and the #Democrat cabal. @realDonaldTrump #America”

Then he re-posted a whole litany of stuff from the only true news source, Fox & friends; 

The mainstream media is neglecting their duty to represent the public. They’ve failed to represent half of the country.”

“Report accuses material James Comey leaked to a friend contained top secret information”

“HRC mishandles and destroys classified info-NO PROBLEM! Pay/play on Uranium one NO PROBLEM! Lynch BC tarmac: it’s a “matter” NO PROBLEM”

“Comey went silent when I asked him about his memos, which raised a lot of eyebrows.”

If you haven’t figured it out yet this is the story line “our” President is setting up to justify his ultimate failure as the Commander-in-chief, President Obama and the Democrats destroyed the nation so badly not even the great Donald Trump, the smartest man in the world, could salvage it. Never mind that he has alienated members of his own party, people within his administration, heads of state other that Putin and 65% of the American citizens, he couldn’t fix it because Obama messed it up so bad it was unfixable. Remember he is like Mary Poppins, “practically perfect in every way” and we are damn lucky to have him. Don’t believe it, just ask him.

  1. Pickups with Trump banners streaming from the back continue to drive by, conversations I overhear at the grocery store still laud the amazing Trump, and neighbors continue to shun me. Sadly, as you have noted, when his demise occurs, tRump and his Trumpeteers will still continue the blame game. “Just can’t fix stupid”

    OMGawd! You continue to put together such timely, accurate, and what-many-of-us-are-thinking posts!

    Another incident that I found rather interesting … he had to “leave for awhile” so Ivanka took over. NO credentials of any kind, yet she sits with other LEADERS of the world and represents the U.S. (Actually, I’m sure she did a far better job than her father, but that’s beside the point.) And where was tRump? Ten-to-one he was taking a nap!

    • He says he had a “quick” meeting with the Japanese PM. He tweeted this: “If Chelsea Clinton were asked to hold the seat for her mother, as her mother gave our country away, the Fake News would say CHELSEA FOR PRES!”. Chelsea responded: “Good morning Mr. President. It would never have occurred to my mother or my father to ask me. Were you giving our country away? Hoping not.”

        He says he had a “quick” meeting with the Japanese PM. Yeah … right! I vote for NAP!

        Good answer from Chelsea.

        I’m really getting tired of this guy and his antics, but one has to admit he makes for great blog fodder.

  3. It’s not the press’s job to ‘represent’ anyone. Their job is to report the truth – which a job Fox fails at miserably. As usual, Trump is projecting his shortcomings onto the target of his anger.
