Trump's Anger

It's a bad week for Trump, and a worse one for our veterans, current troops, and Californians.

Trump got his ass whopped on election day and now he's pissed, cornered, and dangerous. So he's made good on his pointless pre-election threat to send 15K US troops to the border to spend Thanksgiving far from their families, scanning the horizon for a dwindling group of Honduran asylum-seekers as they crawl toward the US border. Nice way to support the troops -- send them on a taxpayer-funded hunt for brown people.

Not satisfied with that abuse of the military, he pissed on veterans while visiting Paris for the commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I.

Tweeting an insult to French President Emmanuel Macron at the start of his trip, Trump spent most of the visit hiding in the American ambassadors' residence in central Paris. He was AWOL from the biggest demonstration of international solidarity on Saturday as world leaders, walking shoulder to-shoulder in a somber, rain-soaked procession toward the Aisne-Marne American cemetery. Putin skipped it, too.

And on Sunday, Trump arrived separately from the 60 other leaders at a World War I remembrance at the Arc de Triomphe. So did Putin.

You don't need a report from Robert Mueller to know that Trump and Putin are in bed together. The mango man-child stood sullen and stiff next to German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron as they waited for the ceremony to begin. But he was practically beaming when fellow would-be dictator Vladmir Putin arrived and gave his best American Komrad a hand shake, arm pat, and encouraging thumb's up.

Trump had to endure two blistering rebukes of his America First (white) Nationalism from Merkel and Macron and didn't get any personal face time with Vlad. He'll get to snuggle him soon at the G20 in Argentina. Trump is the gift that keeps on giving"...to Russia. Putin wants nothing more than to separate the US from our traditional European allies. Listening to Merkel and Macron, they made it clear they no longer view the US as a reliable ally or security partner. Does that scare you? It should.

It's amazing what the Demented Duo have been able to accomplish in under two years.

And before Trump mouths off at Michelle Obama that he'll never forget how her husband "decimated" the military. What a load of absolute steaming bat squeeze. Trump's Veterans Administration is a disgrace, with more than 82,000 veterans waiting for their GI bill benefits. No wonder suicide and homelessness among vets is at an all-time high.

Today the toddler in chief again declined to visit the graves of US soldiers and pay any tribute or respect. He instead chose to pound out petulant tweets about the Florida vote counting. Is there a worse example of military leadership?

And then, in case he hasn't made it clear how he feels about California, he neglected to offer any sympathy or words of comfort for the victims of the deadliest wildfires in recent history. No, he blamed the state for mismanagement of forestry services and threatened to withhold federal payments. Wow.

What an unfeeling asshat. And idiot. That's like threatening to defund earthquake disaster relief until California figures out how to stop earthquakes.

Kathy never expected a career in radio as a talk show producer. Born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, Kathy was completing her nursing degree when in 2001 - in an emergency - she was asked to fill in as the producer of Mike's program. Within a few (more...)
