Members of the mental health community and laypeople alike have speculated on what goes on in Donald Trump’s head. My take on it has always been that his mental landscape resembles a Hieronymus Bosch painting with shades of H.P. Lovecraft, which is to say — chaotic and disturbed? For openers? In any event, demonstrable lies fall from this man’s lips like scales from a molting reptile. Today’s gaffe du jour was to tell reporters after the G-7 conference that Melania, “has gotten to know Kim Jong Un.” That’s quite a feat, considering she’s never met him — at least, not that anybody knows about. Needless to say, fact-checkers and reporters were all over this one like white on rice, so the White House was forced to say something. Interesting job Stephanie Grisham has: how to cover up Trump’s idiotic off-the-cuff comments, and spin them in such a manner that they sound 1. intentional and 2. reasonable. UPDATE! “President Trump confides in his wife on many issues including the detailed elements of his strong relationship with Chairman Kim – and while the First Lady hasn’t met him, the President feels like she’s gotten to know him too.” Stephanie Grisham says in a statement. https://t.co/m3OzXMGh88 — Josh Dawsey (@jdawsey1) August 26, 2019 So, their pillow talk is so profound and detailed, that Melania feels that she’s (music please) “getting to know Un, getting to know all about Un…” That’s one theory. The other theory, is that he’s thinking about his wife-daughter, Ivanka, who has met Kim Jong Un, and who took it upon herself to play Stateswoman Barbie, at N. Korean Summit II, the sequel to N. Korean Summit I — both of them disasters. If anybody ever decides to make a movie out of these two debacles, call Irwin Allen. Here’s what happened, to refresh your recollection. New York Times: On Sunday, Ms. Trump, the president’s elder daughter, used an impromptu meeting between her father and Kim Jong-un, the North Korean leader, to further slip into the role of unofficial spokeswoman and budding stateswoman for the Trump administration. With her husband, fellow senior adviser Jared Kushner, at her side, Ms. Trump delivered news interviews, posed for photos and met Mr. Kim. Earlier in the day, Ms. Trump had repeated what her father has often said about dealing with the North: that it would be free of crippling sanctions and clear for an economic boom if Mr. Kim were to dismantle his nuclear program. Scant evidence suggests that Mr. Kim is taking the steps to do this, but on Sunday, two Trumps rewarded him with a visit. “We are on the precipice of ushering in potentially a golden era for the Korean Peninsula,” Ms. Trump told Bloomberg News in the hours before her father took the historic step of crossing into the North. But by the time she emerged from a building designed for negotiations hours later, she only had one word for journalists about her encounter with North Korea. She called it “surreal.” So, are you, sweetie. Watching you in action is definitely like an hallucination or a dream, a bad one. Her actions in Korea caused immediate blow back. “Ivanka Trump is not on the National Security Council — she is not an adviser on the issues being discussed,” Michael A. McFaul, an ambassador to Russia […]
International embarrassment loves him some dictators and autocrats, defends his dickishness.
My question to Trump at the G20: Ã¢ÂÂwhat is it with your coziness with...
I’ll try my best not to feel stupid, Mr. Pr*sident. And, hey, thanks for making it so easy.
Watching Donald Trump’s tour de force performance...
Sometimes people in Washington get it plain wrong!
If conservatives support police killing citizens without justification, climate denial, fact denial, science denial, racist and misogynistic behavior, or a litany of other absurd points of view about numerous important issues, we call them out.
