Canada 4ft x 6ft Nylon Flag

Forgive US for the idiot who currently defiles the White House and plays at being POTUS. He's a disgrace to all that America stands for, and we sincerely apologize for his beastly behavior. A majority of Americans do not agree with this absurd nincompoop who insults our closest allies and defends the ex-Commie KGB president and dictator for life, Putin.  Trump will be gone one day, maybe sooner than he knows.

via The Washington Post:

"After President Trump’s atrocious and irrational behavior leading up to and at the Group of Seven summit, the disintegration of the liberal world order in place since the end of World War II and the potential for a serious international crisis no longer seem hard to imagine. 

After President Trump’s atrocious and irrational behavior leading up to and at the Group of Seven summit, the disintegration of the liberal world order in place since the end of World War II and the potential for a serious international crisis no longer seem hard to imagine.

The president, unmoved by history, ignorant of facts and guided by sycophants, has not been forced to grapple with the real world nor to hear views that don’t coincide with his twisted worldview, in which allies are ripping us off and aggressive strongmen are to be admired and accommodated. Trump — after departing the G-7 meeting early — reversed his earlier decision to sign on to the joint statement with other member nations. He no doubt was reacting to the public tongue-lashing from Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who told the press, 'I highlighted directly to the president that Canadians did not take it lightly that the United States has moved forward with significant tariffs on our steel and aluminum industry.'

Trudeau continued by declaring that the Trump administration’s decision to invoke 'national security' to justify tariffs was “insulting” given Canada’s alliance with the United States in multiple wars. As Trudeau put it, 'Canadians, we’re polite, we’re reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around.'

Trump can never tolerate criticism, let alone such public and direct criticism, so he accused Trudeau of making “false statements” and reneged on the decision to sign the joint communique.

Trump demonstrated once again that he is erratic and untrustworthy — with his own allies! The contrast between his antagonistic relationship with democratic allies and his never saying a bad word about Russia defies explanation, unless one is to buy into the theory that he is indebted in some fashion to Russian President Vladimir Putin, whose campaign to interfere in the U.S. elections helped land Trump in the White House.

Republicans had a lot to say about how President Barack Obama was weakening American alliances and alienating friends. Now that Donald Trump is actually weakening American alliances and alienating friends, the Republican silence is especially deafening.

At the G7 meeting in Canada, Trump alienated our closest and most reliable friends and encouraged our enemies. Putin couldn't have done a better job himself, destroying relations with our western alliances. But Putin didn't have to do it himself; his puppet in America's White House did it for him.

Donald Trump heads to his big North Korea summit having used the G7 meeting to isolate the United States from its allies. Trump will face off against Kim Jong-un not in a position of strength but with U.S. allies saying things like this following Trump’s juvenile behavior at the G7 and his attacks on Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau after he left that meeting: 

 “International cooperation can’t depend on anger and small words,” France’s Élysée Palace said in a statement. “Let’s be serious and worthy of our people. We spent two days obtaining a draft and commitments. We stick to it. And anyone who leaves and turns their back on them shows their inconsistency.” 

 Prime Minister Theresa May of Britain issued a statement through an aide saying she was “fully supportive of Justin Trudeau.” 

The German foreign minister, Heiko Maas, on Sunday called on European nations to stick together following Mr. Trump’s announcement. “It’s actually not a real surprise,” Mr. Maas told reporters in Berlin. “We have seen this with the climate agreement or the Iran deal. In a matter of seconds, you can destroy trust with 280 Twitter characters. To build that up again will take much longer.”

Trump is who we always said he was, a damaged man unfit for office. But where are the Republicans? Are they also who we said they were, creatures who lust after money and power and nothing else? Yes. Yes, they are.

No matter what he does and how he embarrasses America, his assh*le supporters love him. Theyre as stupid as he is. I hope they all end up eating the crap he's slopped all over America and they choke on it.

skudrunner said...

Can't see why anyone would be against Canada charging a higher tariff for American imported goods then we charge for Canadian imported goods. Seems fair to me.

Infidel753 said...

I've always just taken it for granted that the Russian regime had some kind of dirt on Trump that they could hold over him. It's a well-known Russian tactic, and Trump is the kind of guy who would generate plenty of material for them to use.

Not that we need that as an explanation for Trump's behavior. His own ignorance and belligerence are sufficient.

The both-siderists will really have to strain to wave this one away. There's no chance at all that Hillary as President would have alienated Canada, Mexico, and western Europe like this.

Maas and Trudeau have figured out that there's no point in sucking up to Trump because he will just turn against you regardless, for some trivial or even imaginary reason. Now we just have to hope that Congressional Republicans figure that out too.

I remember a day when the extremist right was so angered with President Obama that they felt he was endangering US relations with our closest [European] allies. They even wrote blog posts and sent incredible comments, all to show how concerned they were with the supposed lack of respect Pres Obama was showing our 'best friends in the world."

Here's a few of those choice opinions back when their knickers were in a wad over moving the Churchill bust.

Please, Mr. Obama, don't hold grudges represent ALL the American people now and some of us prefer you suck it up and display dignity and respect. Churchill did a lot of good. We don't operate on "one strike, you're OUT." Z, hostess of Geeez.

He was going to improve relations with our allies, or so I thought he said. He's off to a great start. Insulting the second best ally we have... Shoprat

In addition to being a complete amateur and a communist zealot, this guy has even not the slightest amount of decency. Just imagine, he took more time with the Chicago Bulls at the White House than with the PM of one of the most important allies of the U.S... Mr. Z

Obama is just being a consistent liberal. Take your allies for granted, and kiss up to your adversaries... Pris

Obie's doing what Jimmah Carter did. He's flipping off our allies. How long until he attempts to perform indecent acts on our enemies? Morgan

Is this the first WH to insult people who disagree? I didn't even think that level of dignity could be'd think that someone in the WH has more respect than that for others.......silly me... Z

I wonder if any of them still hold the view that a president that harms our relationship with our allies is worthless? Of if because we have Trump, and real damage is being done, it's a good thing.

Shaw... President Trump is doing real damage and the GOP members of Congress are afraid of a majority of the minority party and live in fear of losing an election as opposed to doing the right thing.

"A special place in hell"? Really? Isn't that a bridge too far even for this crowd?

Apparently not.

Dave, don't look for consistency from the raging hypocrites of the Mother Ship. They represent Trump's base, and we know its members are okay with leaving their morals and human decency outside the door of their minority Trumpista club. Like the Germans who supported Nazism, those folks will be remembered for their treachery in enabling and supporting President Spanky. I for one will never let them forget.

Clearwater, Imagine if President Obama has insulted Canada while advocating for Putin when he was president.

N.L., Every day we see the truth in your observation. See Dave's comment and understand the depths of Trumpistas' deprivations.

Infidel753, Trudeau and Maas are wise. They don't have to suck up to an idiot who revels in chaos and calling attention to himself. Trump showed up late for a forum on gender equality, and the panelists had to stop their discussion while the creep barged in and disrupted the meeting that was in session. Trump is a narcissistic hog.

Shaw Kenawe said...

"One of Russia’s principal foreign-policy goals for decades has been to split the United States from is allies. Whether by accident or by design, President Trump appears intent on bringing that dream to fruition."

skudrunner said...

All politicians play to their base and that includes Trudeau. He is up for election and he has to appear tough. It was the same as obama when he told the russian that after he election he would have more room to accommodate russia. Unfortunately that was on a open mike and he got caught.

Shaw Kenawe said...

skud, you definitely have ODS. Obama Derangement Syndrome. You cannot come here without throwing shade on President Obama, can you.

Trudeau merely stated that he would put Canada's interests first. How was that "appearing tough?"

President Obama did not say he would "accommodate Russia" on an open mic. He said he'd have more flexibility to negotiate with Putin after the 2012 election. Two entirely different things. And completely correct. Once a president has won his second term, he does have more flexibility.

Now having Russia help an American candidate win an election is entirely different and is in the territory of treason, isn't it?

Shaw Kenawe said...

Also, skud, no matter how much you crap all over President Obama's legacy, remember that THIS NEVER HAPPENED WHEN HE WAS AMERICA'S PRESIDENT:
