Any of my previous daily blogs, this the eighty-sixth since the election, could have been titled WTF. Seriously, ever since election day, the Donald has been spurting crazy from his eyes, crazy coming from his wherever every day – all day long. Hence, they all have been WTF days. But today I’m going draw an arbitrary distinction and label the days we attack friends qualified for WTF status.
Yeah, I know, Trump and variants are metastasizing across the body politic. And sure, Paul Ryan and his team of crack opportunists continue to insist their faith-healing is the best for us all. But, I get their reptilian drive – they gotta take more, regardless of circumstance. Greed, it’s simple and understandable. (Disgusting, but understandable.)
But, bully Australia? Berating the Australia Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull with, I had more fun talking to Vladimir Putin? Hanging up on Turnbull like a frustrated adolescent? It’s Australia dude – WTF!
Trump may want to consider that, while Australian is one of the most laidback cultures on our sad planet, picking a fight with them is always a bad idea. Ask the Turks. The Aussies may not win, but neither will you, mate.
But, perhaps, it’s all a big misunderstanding. After all, Turnbull is an Aussie, so, tends to use English in a, if not poetic, perhaps creative fashion – while Trump speaks very little English at all. So, the chance for misunderstanding is high. Well, at least the Donald didn’t threaten military action – like with Mexico.
Yeah, in his ongoing program to browbeat Mexico into Bitch status, the Donald told Mexican President Pena Nieto, in a similar phone call, he was ready to send U.S. troops to stop “bad hombres down there” unless the Mexican military does more to control them.
Of course, damage control kicked in shortly after the statement was made. U.S. Troops? Oh, just joking, if you know what we mean.
Joking or not, suggest sending U.S. troops into Mexico – WTF!
The republic needs to take the Donald’s telephone privileges away. If he can’t be nice to his friends, soon he’ll have no friends at all.
In Peace and Justice,
PS – On a more positive note, we are one day closer to the inevitable Trump Termination Event. I’m betting on either impeachment or an accident involving crocodiles.
