Trump’s Excellent Adventure

in Trump presidency

Donald Trump took to the road. He didn’t want to. He likes his own bed, predictable foods, and a steady diet of cable news. However, his hosts, after briefings from his handlers, took his fragility into account. There would be plenty of burnt steak and ketchup. Huge projections of his image on walls. And flattering remarks about his electoral college victory. And so off to Saudia Arabia he went.

There he gave a speech and the media swooned. Expectations for Trump are so low that if he reads someone else’s words without offering a ‘woe is me’ he is called ‘presidential’. It wasn’t all smooth sailing He failed to say ‘radical Islamic terrorism’ an incantation conservatives insist must be uttered to render ISIS impotent.

Significantly his handlers blamed his oversight on fatigue. Which is laughable, as Trump had sold himself as a man of energy. Another lie.

So be it.

People hoped that his new sober status might last until the end of his trip. No such luck. In a joint press conference with Bibi Netanyahu, he insisted that, in blabbing secrets to the Russians, “I never mentioned the word or the name Israel”.

This rash utterance failed thrice. First: He did his host no favors by dragging up that piece of stupidity. Second: Once again he showed that his priority is himself and that America comes second. Third: No one had accused him of mentioning Israel.

Then Trump visited Yad Vashem, Israel’s official memorial to the victims of the Holocaust, where he signed the Book of Remembrance. Some compared his message to one in a high school yearbook. It certainly lacked the poetry of a previous President.

Next, there were the Manchester bombings. He said the words that every President says. Offering condolences to the families. Promising unity with the British. And swearing vengeance on ISIS. But not before he gave his explanation for why he would call them not ‘monsters’ but ‘losers’. Thereby consigning them to that amorphous mass of people he doesn’t like.

Again demonstrating that there is no event so tragic it can penetrate Trump’s rigorous self-regard.

Which brings us to the hand holding. Or rather Melania’s evident distaste at Donald’s attempt to grab hers. First in Israel, then deplaning in Rome. Rumors swirl that Melania wanted out if Trump failed to win the presidency. Her revuslion at Trump’s small offering lends support to that theory.

In Rome Trump enjoyed himself by senselessly shafting Sean Spicer. Spicer, a devout Catholic, had looked forward to meeting the Pope. But on the big day, he was denied the honor. He was absent – sent on a coffee run, for all I know. To salt the wound, Trump was there with his Jewish daughter and son-in-law.

Then there was ‘should you, shouldn’t you’ hair-covering controversy. Trump had once chastised Michelle Obama as a disrespectful hussy for going bareheaded in Saudi Arabia. Nevertheless, Melania and Ivanka stood tall in KSA – wearing their hair uncovered.

However, their devil-may-care dismissal of local custom was inconsistent.  When it came to meeting the Pope, the Trump women were clad in black and sporting mantillas.

Anyone hoping for greater eloquence from Trump will have to wait. After meeting with his eminence Trump gushed, “He is something,” and “We had a fantastic meeting”. He also assured the Pope that, “I won’t forget what you said”. Of course, the snide among us are already questioning if he can remember saying that.

Next stop is Belgium and nothing exciting ever happens there – or does it?

Be ashamed for mocking the President. I daresay, you would not have done even 1/4 of a percent as well if you were President.

Hi Patricia, I’m from London, England and as far as about 90% of us over here are concerned, Mickey Mouse would do a better job. The world is on the brink of disaster and the USA has put the biggest nuclear arsenal in the hands of an ignorant, selfish, overgrown baby. Del

How petty you are. The Saudi Arabia trip will create many jobs. Easy to criticize when you have nothing to contribute. How many jobs did you create.

No doubt you are making excellent points. However, I have no idea what they are. If you rephrase them so the average citizen has a chance of understanding them I would be delighted to post them. Best.

Regarding Your president…, just what nation denigrates so much and for so long its president that happens to do all he can for his nation, to rehabilitate it in the world.

Compqraisions to Obama’s poestry are meaingles. So what he can speak and talk so deeply philosophically and he did all he could to put down America and its spirit, its way of life. Obama is now pleasure traveling, hose buying and Harvard’s keeping a spot for her daughter whenever she would feel ready to start her career in movies…Obama does not fight anymore to bring jobs to America(in fact he and the previous ones, sent them out-to equalize the world wealth – as social l justice- must be done- he said! ; he did not do a thing to keep peace on this planet..in fact he nourished so many wars….He did what he could to mix the world populations; he likes this to be mongrelized…naturally..
.So, let him to his pleasures.
Trump is a businessman and he can do what America needs to be done not what his persona want to be remembered of…

How you dare to insult your president? If you like it or not he represents milions of Americans that voted for him. You can have your free speeach but not free insults, no, these should not be accepted and people should keep you responsible for what you are saying.

You misunderstand America. We started off by insulting a king we didn’t like. Then ratified a First Amendment so we could continue offering opinions on leaders – good and bad. Presidents have to earn respect.

Don’t worry about Mr. Trump. Worry about the 65 million Americans who voted for him. Worry about your own British prime minister who called an early election to wind up with a minority government. Not very good judgement, what?

Indeed May did display “not very good judgement” – a common failing of conservatives. But as an American, I cannot claim her as my “own British prime minister”. I shall, therefore, continue to comment on my own minority burden. Carry on.

All you Americans are the same from the president down to the homeless person living on the street. The president is a liar, a murderer,and yes a thief. The presidency has been spinning the truth around for well over 75 years to serve its own agenda. Has anyone really and I mean really looked or studied why it is that the us seems to be getting attacked all the time? War is huge huge bu
