As you may know, today is the day Donald Trump will announce whether he will pull the United States out of the Paris Accord.
Momentous arguments inside the West Wing over the future of the Paris climate accord became a messy public spectacle on Wednesday, with some aides saying that President Trump had decided to abandon the landmark global warming agreement while others insisted that no decision had been made.
With the world watching nervously, the feuding among the president’s aides further exposed the fault lines of a chaotic decision-making process that has swirled around Mr. Trump since he took office.
And it's not surprising that the world is holding its breath, since not only is his government a mess, he's not in great shape either.
For while Trump tried to turn his bizarre Twitter message into a joke.
Most of the jokes were on him...
Much #covfefe about nothing.— Russell Hayward (@russelljh) June 1, 2017
So what if Trump mixes up which buttons he is pushing occasionally....
And Trump's weird late night behaviour can only raise even more doubts about whether he is fit to be president.
What happened after POTUS typed "despite the negative press covfefe"? Did he doze off and hit send? What's he doing when he is tweeting that late? We hope he's engaged in important phone calls and briefings, but then again, what if the tweeting is what's distracting him from those phone calls and briefings?
Third, he is definitely not paying close attention to his tweets. Now, with almost every other citizen on the planet, that's fine. Twitter is for fun. But he's the President. His tweets matter. A lot.
And when you consider that all of this is coming so soon after his disastrous trip to Europe...
And at a time when Jared Kushner, his darling Ivanka's husband, is looking like he could end up badly.
Investigators are focusing on a series of meetings held by Jared Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law and an influential White House adviser, as part of their probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election and related matters, according to people familiar with the investigation.
And Trump could soon be joining him in a race to the slammer.
Fired FBI director James Comey plans to testify publicly in the Senate as early as next week to confirm bombshell accusations that President Donald Trump pressured him to end his investigation into a top Trump aide's ties to Russia, a source close to the issue said Wednesday.
Who can blame Samantha Bee for wondering where in the covfefe is all of this going?
And of course you know what I think.
I think Trump was always out of his depth, never knew what he was doing, and is slowly but surely destroying his presidency.
And while it may take a while, the damage is cumulative.
And his day of judgement is coming...
His whole fucking family should be locked up
Oooh wow, he makes a typo on a tweet and the losers of the internet celebrate.
his day of judgement is coming...
I assume so, let's just hope he does not wreak the world before he departs. I'd love to seem some good forensic accounts auditing his, his companies' and Kushner's finanical records and bank accounts.
Trump could soon be joining him in a race to the slammer. Revolt in 2100 dictator, "Nehemiah Scudder, the man who destroyed American democracy in the name of God". Trump may be a blundering, crooked, dangerous, fool but he's relatively ineffective. Pence seems a religious fanatic with some brains.
Blast, I managed to delete about 40% of my last post. I was referring to Pence reportedly a Christian Dominionist and all round ultra-rightwing nutcase when I was referring to "Nehemiah Scudder, the man who destroyed American democracy in the name of God" from the Heinlein's book " Revolt in 2100".
You triggered, covfefe?
The day Trump jumped the shark.
often wondered who Heilien was describing, thought it Mormons, but we got other contenders every day.
Many a celebrity has discovered the collective media can be a harsh mistress. The sagas of Lohan and Sheen are examples amongst many.
Early on in the romance she/he is willing to play any role the attention seeker desires. Sing their praises, create a new image or even play the role of a cheap hooker trading insults in a WWE type SmackDown where the entertainment value and side choosing deflects attention from the mundane truth. As time goes on the celebrity starts to sense that they are loosing their dominant position, its not working as well as it did and the mistress in gaining power. This elicits a "try harder" response such as more outrageous acts or some form of legal action or restraining order to bring the mistress back in line. The final stage is total loss of control and power resulting in destruction of the individual ending with a stay in rehab or prison in order to break the cycle.The reason for the one sided victory is that the collective media can instantly switch strategy as there is no personal emotion in the encounter whereas the individual does. Trump seems to have entered "try harder" phase of the relationship. Will he beat the odds and win? He has taxpayer money and a vast army of personnel at his disposal but age and his own personal foibles are against him.
hi anon...I can understand how you feel, but Melania and Barron should be spared, and I personally might pardon Ivanka. But when the Trump Bannon regime is finally toppled,I'm pretty sure the court cases will go on for years...
hi MC...look we can all make mistakes, but he's the president of the United States, so he shouldn't. Does nobody check what he is tweeting? Are they all too scared to point a mistake out to him? That's the real covfefe as far as I'm concerned...
hi jrkrideau....I say his day of judgement is coming because I don't know what else to say. I was raised by my parents to try to be a good person, and told that bad people would be punished. And while I'm not a saint I can't believe what Boss Trump and his gang are getting away with. Maybe I should just say the Day of Mueller is coming... ;)
hi jrkrideau....thanks for that correction. I wondered what you meant, and whether you had make a mistake, or I was losing my mind... ;)
hi Steve....yes, he has jumped a few sharks before, but this is the big one. You can't screw with human survival and hope to get away with it....
hi RT...I absolutely loathe the "celebrity" circus. I must be the only guy of my age who wouldn't know a Kardashian from a hole in the wall. But Trump of course lives for the adulation he receives from his deplorables and the Breitbart media. All I know is that a president who hates his job after only four months is probably not all there, and will probably not survive until the end of his term. At least that's the hope I'm clinging to this week like a drowning man to a straw... ;)
hi hinofan...thanks for that cartoon. So true. Trump's followers are now such a distinct breed, and I will never understand from what planet they came. Destroying government is bad enough, but destroying the planet is simply unforgivable....
