Trump broadcasts his colossal ignorance to the world, once again and the world laughs at his stupidity.

From the Daily Kos:  "Steve Almond observed in a recently published essay, 'He appears powerful to his followers, which is central to his strongman mystique.' ”

It is evident that Trump is one of the weakest presidents to sit in the Oval Office, at least in my lifetime, and I've known presidents since DDE.

It is a well-known truism that anyone who has to use threats and bullying to get his or her way is weak. The guy who bragged so loudly about his negotiation skills has negotiated himself into a corner over The Wall. All Trump has left to convince the 60% of Americans who do not support him or his wall fetish are empty threats of creating a national emergency and his quickly vanishing "mystique."

Trump is weak.

The longer this shutdown continues, the weaker he gets.

It's interesting you care more about how this shutdown is hurting Trump than it's hurting the American people.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Anon, I care how Trump is hurting 1/4 of the federal government, which in turn affects many Americans.

Ray Cranston said...

Yeah, right, Anon. Go after Shaw instead of looking at the incompetent lying POS you put in the White house and who is the actual one making peoples lives miserable. You wingnuts always deflect when the asshole you voted for is in deep doo-doo. It's deep doo-doo of his own making. He turns everything he touches into shit.

M. Trump: Je suppose que c'est un connard dans n'importe quel réalité.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Ray, TrumpCultists cannot make the connection between his incompetence and the mess he's made of our country. They think he's doing a great job -- only a minority thibk that. The rest of America live in reality and see how he's destroying our democracy.

F.H., I'm not fluent in French, but I did understand what you wrote, and I agree.

He must be seething over being defied. Look for a declaration of a state of emergency and the resulting turmoil soon.

The irony is that he's the emergency.

Secret Service Members.
Air Traffic Controllers
TSA Personnel
FDA Investigators

And many more government employees expected to work for no pay.

Is this a GOP plan to prove government doesn't work so they can try and cut more $$$ from the budget?

Two months ago, with the GOP in charge of all levers of government, there was not a crisis, or a need to build to wall or shut down the government. Now there is?

Any guesses as to why?

Anon... the shutdown is horrible for the American people. You should visit the conservative blogs and see how happy they are about the shutdown. We want the gov't open. Them? No so much.

And PS... you'd have more credibility if you didn't hide behind ANON...

Shaw Kenawe said...

Dave, folks like Anonymous are angry when I report what Trump does and then give my opinion on his actions. What they should be angry with are Trump's incompetent actions and uninformed opinions on government.

Shaw would have more credibility if she did not write hate everyday.
Now get back to your blog, which you have not posted on for almost 6 years, troll.

I guess negotiation is no longer part of the political process. Blaming has replaced it and seeing who will take the biggest hit.
Trump has dug his heals in the sand over his stupid border wall and nancy and chuckie are delighted because the republicans are taking the brunt of the criticism. I'm sure they hope this will continue on for months because they are still getting paid their salary plus all of the graft from the lobbyists.

Shaw Kenawe said...

skud, you read only the news you agree with.

The Dems have absolutely agreed to negotiations ONCE THE GOVERNMENT IS RE-OPENED! Why should Trump use government works as hostages to get his way? Can you answer that?

Chuck and Nancy are ready to negotiate when trump stops using government workers as pawns.

In this case, it is trump who refuses to negotiate. Billions of dollars were proposed for his wall and he said NO! trump wants it all his way or no way.

Do you actually read the reports or do you just listen to Rush Limbaugh? Hannity?

To Anon: Reporting on what trump does and says is not "hate everyday," it's reporting facts, and then I give my opinion. That's what blogs are for, in case you've been under a rock for the past 15 years. It is exactly what blogs like WYD do, and every conservative blog does.

Dave uses a blog ID so that he can post and not hide behind "Anonymous" like you do. Dave is not a coward; he has the courage of his convictions.

Did I mention that DJT is not very bright?

'In order to dramatize the dangers of life without a Mexico wall, Donald Trump goes to visit a Texas border city that just had its lowest crime rate in 34 years.

The president rebuts critics who say walling off a country is sort of medieval by pointing out that all cars have wheels and “a wheel is older than a wall.”

Multitudinous fact checkers point out that a wall is actually older than a wheel."

Ms Shaw,
Negotiations don't begin with he is not getting what he wants. That is taking a stance that says we do not want to negotiate which is what nancy said and of course chuckie agreed with.

The whole government shutdown is nothing but political posturing and the American people don't matter to either party and never have. This is a great opportunity for the democrats to hold firm in not giving trump anything and blame the republicans for shutting down the government.

The democrats have already shown they don't want to enforce our laws and now they are saying the don't want to restrict access to the US and just have open borders.
