The Coward in Chief

picture of presidents in barbara bush funeral

Missing from this incredible photograph are President Jimmy and Former First Lady Rosalynn Carter and obviously “our” current President, Donald Trump. It was noted by the Carter Center in Atlanta that President Carter was on a private overseas trip and Mrs. Carter is still recovering from a recent surgery. Trump on the other hand spent another weekend at his private resort in Florida spending millions of tax payers dollars tweeting, watching television and playing golf.

Trump “claims” that he didn’t want to make a security circus of the Barbara Bush funeral which sounds very accommodating but in reality is untrue. With four former United State Presidents in attendance a couple of more Secret Service agents really wouldn’t have made a notable difference. The reality of why Trump didn’t attend can be found in the picture above, he didn’t belong there and honestly hasn’t earned the right to be there.

Other than Trump’s wife, Laura Bush and maybe Michelle Obama “our” President has spent the last 15 months skewering the other people in this photograph particularly President Clinton, President Obama and Hillary Clinton. Trump didn’t have the courage to attend Barbara Bush’s funeral because he would have had to face these distinguished Americans in the picture and despite what the Deplorable Nation believes about their man, in truth, Trump is a cowardice pussy who projects his tough guy persona hiding behind Twitter.

So while these former Presidents and First Ladies celebrated the wonderful and remarkable life of Barbara Bush, Trump spent the weekend watching cable news and hammering out one tweet after another attacking everyone from former FBI Director James Comey, NBC’s Chuck Todd and Hillary Clinton to his own Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Why does Trump spend so much time and effort tweeting disparaging stuff out about other people? Go back to the photograph above, he doesn’t belong in that picture and he knows it. Trumps only course of action is to validate himself to himself. That is what narcissistic, insecure people do and Trump is the poster child for both disorders.

Want to know the kind of class “our” President surrounds himself with? Listen to the people he takes advice from. Roger Stone, a Trump adviser and friend said of Barbara Bush; “She was a mean-spirited, vindictive drunk. She is ascending into hell right now. She’s not going to heaven. She was a bad person.” And if that wasn’t enough Stone posted on his Instagram account; “Barbara Bush drank so much booze, if they cremated her … her body would burn for three days.”

The Deplorable Nation is convinced that Trump wouldn’t want to be included in the company represented in that photograph. They think Trumps goal is to destroy the “Deep State” these men represent. In truth, being included is all Trump has ever wanted but he can’t and won’t ever achieve it. Money can’t buy manners, morals, respect, character, common sense, trust, patience, class, integrity, or love and neither will, as Trump will learn, the office of the presidency.

Trump, the man who fires people on twitter. The man who can’t face the media, didn’t attend Barbara Bush’s funeral because he is terrified of having to confront President Obama and Hillary Clinton. He is a pussy, he is the Coward in Chief and this big orange baby needs your hugs Deplorable Nation, he needs them bad. I smell an ego rally on the horizon.

  1. I’m glad that SOB isn’t in this fantastic picture; he would ruin it, just like he’s ruined the Office of the President. You know he wasn’t avoiding this occasion as a “courtesy.”

    Not only did he not attend “by choice,” it’s my understanding he was all but requested NOT to attend by the Bushes. His relationship with Jeb Bush is horrendous and from all I’ve read, Barbara would have turned over in her grave had he attended. Of course, the reason for all this is exactly what you wrote … he’s an ass-hat (I’m being nice).

    And this weekend golfing thing … I know he won’t stop, but it pisses me off that the Repukes just smile and look away. And the deplorables probably think he “works so hard” he needs the break. O.M.G.!

    And his tweeting? DON’T get me started!

  3. That is indeed a great picture which brings back great memories of how it was. Putting politics aside, they represent grace, wit, civility, intelligence, honor, and courage.
