German news magazine 'Der Spiegel' rips Trump, calling him 'unfit' and 'a danger to the world'.......

 

 


"Donald Trump is not fit to be president of the United States. He does not possess the requisite intellect and does not understand the significance of the office he holds nor the tasks associated with it. He doesn't read. He doesn't bother to peruse important files and intelligence reports and knows little about the issues that he has identified as his priorities. His decisions are capricious and they are delivered in the form of tyrannical decrees.

He is a man free of morals. As has been demonstrated hundreds of times, he is a liar, a racist and a cheat. I feel ashamed to use these words, as sharp and loud as they are. But if they apply to anyone, they apply to Trump. And one of the media's tasks is to continue telling things as they are: Trump has to be removed from the White House. Quickly. He is a danger to the world."

 

(They say Trump simply has to be removed and break down how the Americans can and should make it happen. Even they know Republicans are spineless and do not respect the rule of law: )

 


 

''The first is Trump's resignation, which won't happen. The second is that Republicans in the House and Senate support impeachment, which would be justified by the president's proven obstruction of justice, but won't happen because of the Republicans' thirst for power, which they won't willingly give up.

The third possible solution is the invocation of the 25th Amendment, which would require the cabinet to declare Trump unfit to discharge the powers of the presidency. That isn't particularly likely either.

Fourth: The Democrats get ready to fight and win back majorities in the House and Senate in midterm elections, which are 18 months away, before they then pursue option two, impeachment.

Fifth: the international community wakes up and finds a way to circumvent the White House and free itself of its dependence on the U.S. Unlike the preceding four options, the fifth doesn't directly solve the Trump problem, but it is nevertheless necessary - and possible."

Senators from both parties blast “outrageous” Trump call praising Duterte for killing spree https://interc.pt/2qkkSnw  by @AlexanderEmmons

 

 

“He’s essentially congratulating Duterte on murdering 4,000 [sic] of his own citizens. That’s outrageous,” said Sen. Murphy.

“The reason you get briefed before these phone calls is so that you don’t say something as dumb as that.”

 

I thought it was 6000! :angry:

Read an opinion column by Doyle McManus (LA Times) today.  Among other things he stated that he doubts Trump will resign, be impeached or removed with the 25th Amendement.  An opinion I agree with.

Gist of the coulmn was about a Pres. Pence.  Would be worse or better off?  He favors a Pres. Pence simply because we know what he stands for and he is experienced in government.  As opposed to the questionable actions of Trump in law enforcement and foreign affairs.

 

I would add that Pence is far less likely to get us into a war or military action while abandoning Europe to Russia and Asia to China.

Of course the downside is that Pence may be more likely to accomplish more of the socially and religiously conservative agenda and that of the wealthy and corporations because he does know how the government works. 

then it's a win win! :D

Unfortunately that guy doesn't know how slow and how long it can take for justice to prevail in this country. Impeachment may take awhile, especially with spineless Republicans ignoring the mounting information about Trump and his staff's collusion with the Russians, outright profit ing off the White House connection, and any number of other things. THEY are colluding with this government, who allowed our adversary into our White House as our "leader" gave them state secrets and outed some of our spy operations in the process. Between Trump lying and obstructing, and Congress looking the other way, it will be many months before this guy is impeached and/or resigns in disgrace.

"the remaining countries on his itinerary announced that they would rather “wait a month” and meet with the next President instead.

 

“It makes no sense for us to roll out the red carpet for Trump when there is going to be a completely different guy in the White House in a month,” Hendrik van der Valde, a travel minister for the Belgian government, said. “We very much look forward to hosting the next U.S. President, be it Mike Pence or Paul Ryan or whoever.”

 

Citing the exorbitant costs of hosting a President, the Belgian said it “would be insane” to spend such sums on someone who “only has a few weeks left” in office.

 

“When a President comes to your country, you have to feed not only him but a whole plane full of people that he brings,” the minister added. “Jared Kushner, for example, eats a ton, and no one even knows what he does.”....

What a completely appropriate analogy.

13bcaf39f26f7dcc4bbbbfd3ef0ae577.jpg

"I think the man should be in a home, quite honestly. He's as crazy as a hoot," said the 86 year-old father of James Comey yesterday to CNN, in describing Donald Trump.


J. Brien Comey continued:

"I think he (Trump) should be impeached immediately--yesterday. He's a very incompetent guy; he's out of his League."

Mr. Comey also stated that he had been for Ohio Governor John Kasich during the Republican primary, so he did not vote for either Trump or Hillary Clinton.

PBS Newshour political columnist Mark Shields today characterized Donald Trump in this way ( to paraphrase)--

George Washington was the president who could not tell a lie;

Richard Nixon was the president who could not tell the truth and


Donald Trump is the president who cannot tell the difference.

"The man who coauthored “Art of the Deal” with Donald Trump ― a book often cited on the campaign trail last year ― said the president will soon look for a way out of all of his administration’s scandals.

“There is no right and wrong for Trump, there’s winning and losing,” Tony Schwartz told CNN’s Anderson Cooper. “And right now, he is in pure terror that he is going to lose.”


Schwartz predicted that Trump would ultimately “lose,” but said he won’t go through an impeachment process. 


“I surely believe that at some point over the next period of time he’s going to have to figure out a way to resign,” Schwartz said in comments posted online by Mediaite. But in quitting, Trump will try to “figure out a way, as he has done all his career, to turn a loss into a victory so he will declare victory when he leaves.”....

Jim Bakker: Making Fun Of Trump Is The ‘Spirit Of The Antichrist’

 

Disgraced televangelist said the first horseman of the Apocalypse is here.

 

 

http://www.huffingto...n=us_weird-news

 

 

I wasn't aware Jim Bakker was still alive.

According to Wikipedia, the first horseman is either Conguest or Pestilence, depending upon the source.

I don't understand where making fun of Trump is either one?

Of course, Bakker's theological training/experience may be different from other people's.
