G20 signing ceremony moment

There are so many {{cringeworthy}} Trump moments from the G20 but this one captures what the other world leaders are thinking:

Slightly OT, does anyone understand Trump’s obsession with the word “weak”? Does he think that if he calls other people “weak” it will make him look strong?

What kind of brainless person would believe that?


I saw this on Twitter yesterday:

Someone on the news commented that Mueller has checkmated Trump. Mueller has spent many years investigating and prosecuting organized crime and knows how to stalk his quarry, flip witnesses and cut off avenues of escape. (So you think you are going to get a pardon for federal crimes? Ok. I’ve turned a lot of your misdeeds over to state court. Pardon’s not looking so golden now, does it?)

Just a reminder that the following people are Republicans:

Robert Mueller

Rod Rosenstein

Chris Wray

Andrew McCabe

James Comey

All these people Trump says are ganging up on him with angry Democrats are REPUBLICANS.

What Trump actually hates is that these people are not politicians scratching his back. They’re career civil servants or political appointees whose terms of office were intended to survive the president who appointed him.

When Trump is throwing a tantrum about them, it’s not because they’ve become soft hearted and vindictive liberals. It’s because they’re well trained, rule following Republicans who are largely untouchable.
