Humiliating: Trump Starts Off W/ Attack of Germany, Wrong on Facts

Trump had a group over to breakfast at the U.S. Embassy in Belgium and “got right to work” so to speak, in attacking German policy. In true Trump fashion, he started out wrong on the facts:  Trump accused Germany of being a “captive” of Russia.

Rawstory is bringing us the basics.

In a startling public outburst against the NATO heavweight, Trump told NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg that Germany was wrong to support a new $11-billion Baltic Sea pipeline to import Russian gas while being slow to meet targets for contributing to NATO defense spending that was intended to protect Europe from Russia.

That’s our “boy” – quite literally – telling other countries what their domestic policy ought to be, disingenuous in premising his attack on the one thing that Russia likely most approves of (so we know Trump doesn’t actually oppose Germany’s decision), and totally butchering NATO’s mission.

Newsflash to everyone here (you already know this); We “assist” NATO nations because it exponentially helps our OWN defense to have Russia boxed-in “over there” rather than having no “buffer” between Russia and us. I once read a military specialist who said that one cannot understand Russia unless one understands that they are fixated upon their “mostly landlocked nature” and are deeply paranoid – thus their biggest priority is finding real “blue water” ports to the real ocean, and guess who has those? ALL of Europe.

Then Trump pulls classic Trump move, and is 100% wrong on his facts:

Trump, who is set to hold a meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel later on Wednesday, appeared to substantially overstate German reliance on Russian energy and to imply the German government was funding the pipeline, which Berlin says is a commercial venture.

Great. So Trump criticized the German government about a completely private corporate endeavor. And where the fk does he get off lecturing other countries about their entanglements with Russia? We had Russia ATTACK our country, we saw Russia ATTACK Brexit, and Trump is the last human being on Earth to still deny that Russia actually did it. Yet there he sits, lecturing Germany.

This is going to be epic-bad, real bad. Does he realize how many presidents, over decades, went step by meticulous step, in building the relationships and partnerships we have with NATO? Does he realize that the fact that we pay for much of it allowed us to have a far greater “say” in how we deployed NATO defense? No.

Great start, jackass. Sir. Sr, Jackass.

This shithead could affect our relationship with our allies for years. The fact so many Republicans refuse to face this fact and sit there with their thumbs in their mouths or other places, is unforgivable.
We can only hope we stomp on this idiot’s world in November enough to make him trip over himself, and he begins to spiral out of control and out of the White House, in the most expedient manner possible.

The only facts that M-FUCKING RETARD sees is the “Facts”? created solely by him in his SICK MIND & DISEASED BRAIN. For America’s sake, Let America put Mr. MANIC right where he belongs, in the nearest Maxium Security Mental Hospital for the Criminally Insane, wearing the Latest Fashion in Straight Jackets.

I think once trump is out of the way a real President will sincerely apologise for his actions to our allies. And I believe they will graciously accept anyone other than trump leading our country.I also hope they declare his presidentcy a complete FRAUD : )

My only solace is knowing that he will eventually be out of office. I just hope he doesn’t put into practice right wing conservative Supreme Court justices who are a threat to Roe versus Wade and how far women have come in this country. Women have the right to choose when violated. Anyway, off the topic but I am disgusted with his behavior to NATO leaders. It is very embarrassing to have this dumbo as our president!

Let’s face It, this nutcase is a total disgrace not only as an American but as a human being. There’s grains of sand smarter than this guy. So my question to you, I long are we going to put up with this joke.

I love all the above comments. I agree with everyone, but gotta put in my 2 cents worth in with you folks. This absolute jerk with an IQ of less than a dodo bird has no way of sitting in the Chair that he does. It doesn’t belong to him or any other yoyo in the White House or Congress. What a bunch of low lifes we have there along with McConnell. When are the right people that put up with this dead beat going to get his ass out of there. He is nothing but a trouble maker wherever… Read more »
