Good Day World!
"Coffee, because crack isn't accepted in the work place." - Barista Life
There's some things you can count on in life.
Taxes. Getting older. A Congress so dysfunctional that when a bill does get passed - any bill - both sides do a victory dance for a week. Then Trump vetoes it.
And, the one thing Americans can count on about Trump is that he will embarrass the hell out them when he visits other countries. From the Surrender in Helsinki to love letters with Kim, he has stripped away all dignity in foreign affairs.
Trump's making lasting relationships with every dictator in the world and throwing our traditional allies under the bus.
Trump's latest state dinner event in Japan is a perfect example of how twisted he really is.
First, he berates the Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe about trade inequality, and then goes on to praise Japan's biggest enemy in the world, North Korea.
In a stunning display of stupidity Trump said - during the elaborate Emperor's dinner - he had no problem with North Korea firing off missiles again!
Abe definitely has a problem with it, and told Trump it was a violation of the current UN restrictions of no missile testing.
When national security adviser, John Bolton, said the same thing about his idiotic assertion, Trump doubled down (as usual) and said Kim just wanted his attention, and had no intention of starting any trouble.
As the polite Japanese dignitaries listened in stunned silence, Trump upped the ante and suggested Kim was a pretty smart guy because he said Joe Biden had a low IQ. Which of course, is part of Trump's current smear campaign and was heartedly received by the orange ape who agreed with Kim.
Now, wasn't that cozy? Is Kim sending Donny a message like some pundits believe? Or, is Kim trying to get Putin jealous by flirting with Donny? Who knows?
By degrading a former vice president of the United States with the eager assistance of a bloodthirsty tyrant, Trump has sunk to another new low.
In his lizard brain he sees Biden as a competitor for the presidency next year, and is doing everything he can to demean him.
I'm trying hard not to think about Trump's upcoming visit to England, where he's set to meet the Queen, Prince William, Kate Middleton, and Prince Harry for lunch. Notably, Meghan Markle won't be there because she doesn't like his Orangeness.
Fun fact: Markle voted for Hillary Clinton.
It's going to be a long time before America can restore its image in the international community. Hopefully, the healing process will begin next year when Trump gets driven out of office.
Time for me to walk on down the road...
