Trump Humiliates United States in Epic Press Conference with Macron

Donald Trump is busily humiliating the United States. In a press conference with Emanuel Macron, Trump couldn’t help himself and snarkily offered to send ISIS fighters to France. This, friends, is not how it is done:

Macron, who happens to be a serious adult, responded like a serious adult who is also the president of a large and prosperous nation:

“Let’s be serious,” said Macron. “The very last numbers of fighters on the ground are the fighters coming from Syria, from Iraq. It is true that you have foreign fighters coming from Europe, but this is a tiny minority of the overall problem we have … second, some of the foreign fighters are being in Iraq because of the — we have a humanitarian approach for children. very organized. and we’ll have a case-by-case approach. But we need to finish war against ISIS and don’t make any mistakes. 

Indeed, let’s do be “serious,” and we should be “seriously” upset with our brat president.

Trump humiliated us by stating that the EU was formed to “take advantage of the United States,” which is …. well, humiliating.

Originally, I conflated the European Union and NATO together, an error which I deeply regret. I said that NATO was not formed to “take advantage of the United States …” when clearly Trump is referencing the EU as being formed to take advantage of the United States.

In thinking on it more, I am starting to think that Trump intentionally referenced the E.U., which was formed to maximize the Europeans bargaining power and ability to trade among and govern each other, at the NATO conference specifically to confuse and conflate the two entities in the United States.

This is a NATO conference, meant to celebrate the anniversary of the NATO alliance, which is why Trudeau is there. So why would Trump be talking about the EU and its original purpose? I suspect he wants people back home, like me, conflating the two entities, and he especially wants his supporters believing that NATO might have been formed “to take advantage of the United States.” The E.U. might have been formed to “offset” some of the U.S.’s bargaining power, so in that way it could – maybe – be thought of as taking advantage of the United States. But not NATO, and this conference is about NATO. It is entirely possible Trump meant for us to confuse the two entities.

Regardless, I deeply regret confusing the two entities in my original column, especially when I think about the possibility it was purposeful.

The humiliation wasn’t done.

The United States is being shamed on Twitter:

 

Trump supporters deserve it, and I feel a sense of shame as an American generally.

Trump “declined” to strongly uphold Article V, the core provision of NATO that says an attack on one is an attack on all. He “passed.”

This was, in my opinion, Trump’s most epic “fail” on the international scene. Trump obviously cannot get the impeachment off his mind, and thus he’s going to humiliate “us” (punishment) for bringing it upon him. This is how Trump “acts,” it is who he “is.” When Trump feels attacked, he will punish anyone near him.

We need to watch this closely. When threatened, Trump lights a blow torch and carries around a gas tank, lighting up all around him. He punishes others because his ego cannot handle that he is going through so much pain and chaos. In his fit of pique he’s destroying seventy-plus years of trust and good will. He will continue to protect his friends in Russia and weaken those who oppose him, personally, like Macron, Trudeau and Merkel, all to benefit Putin.

Here is a taste of the latest:

Peace, y’all

I’ve been watching this debacle and I’ll tell you I’m almost embarrassed to be an American citizen right now because of this babbling baboon. He’s got the whole world laughing at us. He’s the most pathetic loser of human being ever to hold a public office. In a way the media over there is somewhat to blame for his crazy rant, asking him the same questions. Stop throwing gasoline on the fire.

This is the dumbing down of America on full display. The head nitwit making a fool of himself for all to see. His base of uneducated religious hypocrites elected him because he is just like them. His repulsive behavior makes them proud.

He must play golf at a cost of over “one hundred years of his salary “, (of taxpayers money)to keep in shape .
He used to call people , and tell them his name was “JOHN BARRON” ,( an admirer of Trump ),
and he named his son BARRON.
What to hell’s in his mind ?

Yes he wants his supporters to be confused. That way the very nice man with fake hair can explain how all these countries are screwing the US. Just like what you see and what you read is not the truth. I will tell you what is true.

Trumps, doing more to humility the Americans
than anyone else. The fact that a minority of voters , voted to put this “ reprobate “ into the presidency of the United State’s, has made us all sick , and humiliated.
How can we rid ourselves of this
“wrecking ball” , of our constitution, and democracy.
We can only hope the Senate
will do the “right thing “!

One of the things they are missing is that a lot of stuff like tricky Trumpets tax records and subpoenas for his people are going through the system. So even if he beats this impeachment there are more charges to come. And they already know he has criminal charges pending on taxes when Congress gets them.

They made his sister retire or face ethics probe that would have resulted in jail time. There’s a law says all federal employees can’t have illegal crap in their background. His sister was brought up on charges not for the tax evasion. Statues ran out. But federal law says you can’t have that on your record. So they made a deal, retire and we drop ethics charges. If they actually went after her any case she sat on would be up for retrial. Big scandal they “fixed”. Was all over daddy trump and his tax evasion. Donnie is a federal… Read more »
