Trump’s Children Whine – Just Like Dad.

by Pitt Griffin on June 12, 2017 · 37 comments

in Trump presidency

Ivanka Trump says she was surprised by the “level of viciousness” in the attacks on her father. It makes you wonder if she slept through the Obama administration. Or if somehow it didn’t count because the President was …. something. At the very least, it points to a lack of empathy.

She is not the only Trump sibling wallowing in this sense of entitlement – or ‘woe is us’. Younger brother Eric was equally whiny when he said that he had “never seen hatred like this” and “morals have flown out the window”. He seemed oblivious to the fact that he is a progenitor of the same vitriol he so vehemently decries, as he casually dismissed his father’s enemies “They’re not even people“.

Regardless, complaining about how tough it is in politics is the refuge of the weak. Obama never kvetched that people were being nasty to him – and God knows he had cause. The Trump young should heed Harry Truman’s admonition: “You want a friend in Washington, buy a dog.” (Although it should be noted that there is no evidence Truman actually said this).

And just to complete the matched set of Ivana’s offspring, let’s add Donald Jr’s recent contribution to presidential revisionism. Senior categorically denied that he had said anything to Jim Comey about dropping the Flynn thing. Junior, however, contradicted his old man, blurting out that dad had indeed said “he hoped” Comey would fold his tent. Sadly, the ignorant spawn thought he had dad’s back by dismissing the supposedly unuttered words as no more than a wisp of a suggestion.

I would tell the Trump folks – both the family and the hired hands – that if they wish to exude competence, they should agree on the lies they are going to tell. But that is to ignore the lead in this ignoble play. Trump is a man who refuses to learn his lines. Who will spout whatever nonsense pops into his head. And why not? It got him to the presidency.

But tapping into a middle-America’s well of want, or sweet-talking yourself out of personal bankruptcy, or browbeating the little guy doesn’t give you the experience you need to dig yourself out from under a special prosecutor and his staff.

They aren’t swayed by bullying, promises of future jobs, whining, and cajoling. They don’t have to make a profit or cover up the mistakes they made by lending you money in the first place. They are inexorable.

But maybe Trump is innocent. Except if he is, why are Newt Gingrich and Trump’s other Remoras speaking so negatively of Robert Mueller? And why is the great man himself floating the idea of firing him?

That seems vicious.

You ssaid all one needs to lnow about trumps degradation of realit tv parody disguised as a comedy of the absurd. Trump is dangerous npt because he is diabolical but because he is a 70 year old incompetent child and the so called adult republicans seem to take comfort in that fact. But they truly have no good intentions for the people they do not serve.

Trump avoids taking questions from the press & random people, he fears that he will be unable to answer questions.. His vocabulary is extremely poor. He hides while Spicer does it & his performance is poor. Currently the White House is playing out like looney toons. They’ve no clue what there doing, they are attempting to sweep the dirt under the rug. Real business goes undone. The entire world is aware of Americas nightmare. I urge all Americans to wake up & advise Senators/Congress to impeach Trump, We might as well have Donald Duck & Daffy Duck running the White House. Get these criminals out now!

Trump is criminal no doubt. One only needed to read about his business dealings with the mafia in both NY and NJ the Attorney General’s offices in both of those states — every criminal business activity well documented. What he did to the many people in those states by refusing to pay them wages, cutting off his renters heat and electricity, forcing African American renters to pay more for their rental lease contracts than non-minorities, bribing the mafia with expensive luxury cars and the list really does go on. As for the evangelical Christians that voted for him, and most Republicans in general, Donald Trump has now defined who they really are — heartless hypocrites, people who abandon their own morals for short term political gain.

“President Donald Trump “… what an oxymoron. Every day when I wake up and hear those words I want to heave. This Trogolodite is dangerous, self serving and completely unqualified to hold any public office position, especially, “President of the United States”
“Good-bye Mister Trump”

Trump has a Narcissistic Personality Disorder. They don’t have the ability to value others,
feelings, ideas and ignore others needs.
He has a narcissistic personality disorder, which is a mental illness.He puts himself first, craves attention, exaggerates himself and himself only.
He strives to win what ever that means to him. Does not have empathy nor does he
knows what that means.
He can’t take responsibility for flaws and fails to see flaws in himself.
Do to his selfishness is unable to have friends.

This is your President. Those that voted for him need to take responsibility and get him IMPEACHED before unreversed damage.

Politicians do not and will not do any good, they are there for themselves. However, politicians are elected by people therefore people have the obligation to elect a bit better ones and right to get rid of grossly incompetent & corrupt individuals. Fortunately the constitutions and structure is there , It just needs to be executed.
If people (Americans) want to ensure to stay as leader of the world for that they have to rise above day today silly acts of Trump and also vote those out, who support him , in addition who do not raise voice against injustice.

Is that why people emigrate here by the millions, every year?! Apparently they find something appealing about living the “American Dream!” What is it about freedom & democracy that offends you?! The beauty of our country is, that even if we somehow made the mistake of electing a 70 y/o toddler to run our country, in four years we will have the opportunity to correct that mistake. Our president does not have absolute power. He’s not a dictator, we have a system of checks & balances. Maybe that’s why our country has only been around for a blink of an eye, yet we are the most powerful country in the free world. You can criticize us all you want, but I guarantee that as soon as your country (whatever that is) is in trouble, they will undoubtedly look to the US for help!

Fact remains that the US now has one of, if not the most corrupt government’s in the world. And it’s all in the open for all to see. Senator’s who kowtow to lobbyists. taking money from corporations and condemning lesser citizens to bankruptcy because they get sick. You’re talking about the US 50 years ago when the world was ignorant of the facts. Despicable is the word.

America has been split into groups of warring political factions once again. The ( possible) fraudulent election of Donald.J. Trump has given America’s enemies the opening they needed to begin the final destruction of the ” Great Old Republic”. The dominant 1 %ers will continue to flourish while the other 99% of Americans flounder under the leadership of an incompetent President and his party of angry rich old white men. Enough said here!

Unfortunately it’s going to get much worse for the trump and company. Trump is just the fool as long as he’s keeping the public’s eyes off Mitch McConnell and is still a useful distraction trump will stay in office. The minute McConnell looses control of trump. McConnell will have him impeached in a heartbeat. Trump’s just a bigoted new York slum lord. McConnell the most dangerous player in the white house. But as long as trump’s playing the fool he’s safe.

The baby man with wee little hands embarrasses America every time the twit tweets. It is a sad reflection of a declining democracy when a wee little man with a wee little brain is supported by the undereducated who do not, cannot, or will not accept that he is ill-suited for any role beyond reality TV. He is a bully and, in all probability, guilty of everything in the Steele dossier. If you wish to hold a different opinion, you may do so. The record will speak for itself.

I couldn’t careless about Trunt’s whiny little brats. The real problem is Mr. Trunt himself. He’s supposed to be the so-called commander and chief. And it’s not his whining that concerns me so much as his lack of maturity and unfitness to do the job. And we thought GWB was a lousy president.

Trump is the best president by far. Tough and smart. The fake news is already uncovered. Poor CAN and their failing propaganda mission is a joke. It’s too bad that on this small insignificant world we call Earth we fight against each other as if we have some other place to go to if we wanted. Well we don’t and if we all don’t open our eyes and realize all the B.S we endure each day is just temporary we might not even have this tiny planet to call home.

We don’t know what Obama might have said because the resistance he received after his victory isn’t quantifiable with what President Trump has been subjected to. And yes, Obama was born with money.
