Whether you follow US politics or not, it would still be extremely hard for you to miss the news of Trump's meeting/summit with Russia's Putin in Helsinki (no pun intended), a day or two ago. And again, Trump has outdone and bettered himself in the same areas of offensiveness, contempt and audacity. Trump was so audacious that reactions in the media (social and otherwise) were negative and vicious. His own die-hard supporters like Newt Gingrich and fellow Republicans called him out on his duplicitous comments against the legal institutions of the United States - yes, his own country. A former CIA director called Trump's comments "treasonous". A New York Times article had this title: "Trump, Treasonous Traitor." Wow! Though that's not surprising considering that Trump also called the US foolish in one of his summit tweets. True.
Awwwwww poor Trump with all those mean and nasty reactions from his country folks. Well, let me do him a favor and DEFEND him - something I rarely do. Yes, you read that right. Let me help out with the damage control that is desperately being worked on by the White House even as I write this post.
Okay. All of you anti-Trumps, listen up! You including CNN, MSNBC and - believe it or not - FOX News. Trumptard, or not, you would know about the love affair between Trump and "Fox & Friends". These "Foxies" - including Hannity, Carlson, Ingraham, Jeanine [pi]Pirro (lol!) - would take a bullet for Trump. But some of them too flipped on the president. So to y'all Trump assailants let me say "Chill out!" Let me echo Trump's extreeemely patriotic base: "Trump was/is being Trump!"
First: You should stop being surprised at Trump's follies and idiocy. He has already and unabashedly told you - and demonstrated - what kind of man he is and what kind of president he was going to be. He has even informed you in a dramatic way the boundary and bar that he has set for his deviations and improprieties. He said that he would shoot somebody and there will still be people who will support him. So there's your trip point folks. Wait until he shoots someone then you can fire and unload all your ammo on him. For now he's being himself. Trump is being Trump. He has broken all the rules of common sense, decorum, civility and integrity. What could he do that's worse, ...hmmm....except to shoot someone?
Second: Some of you asked: "But where's his staff?" His whaaat? You mean the long rod/stick like the one the Samoan orators use when delivering an oration? Trump doesn't have such a staff. Oooh, you mean "staff" as in people who advise and work for him? He does have that staff but he doesn't take, consider or NEED any advice from any of them. As you all know, Trump is a very smart person. Very very very smart. In fact he may very well be the smartest of all presidents, and the likes of which the world has ever seen. Also remember that he's an Ivy League graduate (despite the fact that he still needs a lot of work and improvement on his spelling). So no staff needed; therefore lighten up, okay?
Third: Some of you have said that his summit press conference was disappointing, disgusting and disgraceful. Again, you act like you don't know Trump. All the things he said about the National Security and Intelligence departments repudiating their reports on Russian hacking are all LIES. Simply, he was lying to make Putin look good. So Trump's lies were good WHITE lies. He was being a true friend of Putin, and was only trying to "make Russia great again!" This is something a good president does and can even go as far as declaring his desire for the slogan "Russia first!" It's all part of his political ploys and strategies. He did nothing bad or disgraceful. So calm down y'all! He would soon reverse himself like he always does by telling another TRUE LIE. Incidentally, earlier today he walked back his comments by saying he used the wrong word ("wouldn't" instead of "would"). Regarding the hacking by Russia, Trump back in America, today, said "The sentence should have been, 'I don't see any reason why it
He actually said "would" while standing next to Putin - "I don't see any reason why it would be Russia." You see? He's a very smart guy. "Would or Would Not?" The query is now on a par with Shakespeare's "To be or not to be" So give Donnie a break, will ya?
Fourth: Still many of you ask the question: "Why?" "Why is Trump so friendly to Putin?" And no, Putin does not have any compromising stuff on Trump. But here's why. We all know that Trump is a very religious and God-fearing man. He is a tremendously devout Christian. Very devout. That's why the evangelicals and religious right love him. He reads and studies the Bible everyday. Many say that he's more religious and devout than the Pope. Believe me! So what does that have to do with loving and embracing Putin, you ask? Well, let me tell you. Trump is very thorough in keeping God's commandments, especially the one that says to "love your enemies and do good to those who despitefully use you..." If we consider Putin an enemy, then Trump is doing God's will and the result is that we will all go to
Fifth: If you still wonder about the imbecility of any of the things Trump says and tweets, I'd say to give him a break or chance. You see he was never a politician before, only a businessman. So Trump does not know or understand much about politics, diplomacy or the art of statesmanship. In other words he's an idiot; he's fa'avasivasi (not all there) ignorant and incompetent. And that's correct. In fact a lot of pundits claim that Trump is a fulfillment of another Russian's (Andrei Kolesnikov) political jargon of "useful idiot" - Putin's "useful idiot". And that's a great and tremendous compliment, at least among the Russians. For you Americans, be patient with him. And be grateful that Trump is president for only a few years - unlike Putin.
So again I plead with you to give Mr. Trump a break. Let Trump be Trump! And let America be ...hmmm...well, Foolish??? .... Huh???
