So far old 'Fess' (Parker) Tillerson has been about as effective as a piece of driftwood.

Appears that UN ambassador Nikki Haley, former gov. of S.C., is far more independent and hawkish than Trump or Tillerson expected.  Or maybe it is part of Trump's method of having staffers compete with each other?

It should be quite obvious by now that Trump and his appointees are making up foreign policy on the fly.  More proof that he did not have a clue during the campaign and was just playing to his red meat crowd.

Oh yeah.  The difference between campaign rhetoric and the reality.

 

This guy backpedals at a rate that probably makes our resident "spinner" DGF green with envy.  ;)

"Obama arrives in Germany on the same day that Trump arrives in Brussels. He will join German Chancellor Angela Merkel for a panel regarding “Being Involved in Democracy: Taking on Responsibility Locally and Globally.” This will be Obama’s first public appearance since leaving office.

Obama is extremely popular in Germany and is expected to give Merkel a boost in her September re-election bid. A Merkel win is not necessarily good news for Trump; Merkel is much more closely aligned with President Obama’s progressiveness than Trump’s backwards policies and stances....

I saw a report today that they are changing the NATO meeting agenda to accommodate Trump.  Essentially they are dumbing it down.  Limiting speeches to 4 minutes because of Trump's attention span and doing a quick wrap up at the end in the hope to avoid any nasty tweets by Trump.

".....Trump will soon depart for his first foreign trip as president. He has reportedly expressed “dread” about the tour and asked to have it shortened. It’s no wonder.

Trump has repeatedly shown himself to be a pushover in face-to-face encounters with foreign leaders, and this series of meetings should be especially fraught.....

But, has Trump finally learned that the West Wall is in fact in Israel?

Yeah, I was wondering about him, too. It's been over 3 weeks since his last post. Hopefully he's on a vacation on some tropical isle with no WiFi.

In a further move to make things easier for Dumb Donny to understand,

each 4 minute speech will be accompanied by drawings of the main

import of the speech with a person standing by their side with a pointer,

just in case.

 

I figure Down Goes was in such great shape for his age that some NFL

team picked him up in Philly.

Apparently tough guy Trump is not going to mention the words 'Radical Islamic Terrorism' while he is in Saudi Arabia.

They've given poor Donny Donny too much to read in Saudi today.  He's running out of gas and practically out on his feet.

Donny Trump lays it down to the muslim world in a powerfully bold speech. it's the kinda speech a real leader gives and that mister perfect obama NEVER GAVE.

 

almost immediately you could see the disconnection on the part of the cable news pundits. this woman on cnn said she was scared. by what? true leadership or the absence of egg-sucking political correctness?

they can't understand the lack of undefined moral diffusion. trump spoke of things long removed from their disconnected hoy-faloy psyches. of good vs. evil and of civilization vs. medieval barbarism.

 

all I heard from this one female dipsheet on cnn was about how trump might have offended the iranians! and all because obama sucked up to evil instead of opposing it like any american potus should!

 

it was a helluva great speech but the phony cable news moe foes will never see it...because they doan want to...they're closet democrats the lot of 'em!

Trump's speech in a nutshell:  We will sell you weapons and will now look the other way when you torture and mistreat your people.

That's the same deal we have with Israel, right?

Not exactly, we usually just give them to Israel or at a super low price.

To be fair, Trump's 70 and a trip like this could exhaust men much younger than that. Still, he made such a big deal about Hillary's "lack of stamina" during the campaign it's difficult not to gloat a little bit over these reports.

 

If he starts to fall down and has to be propped up by security agents we'll have a nice video clip to replay countless times besides that clip of Clinton faltering during the campaign.
