    • America Is About To Feel Like A 3rd World Nation
      I spent a good chunk of my childhood in third world countries. Most of it was in Bangladesh, then arguably the poorest country in the world, but I visited or lived in Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Nepal and India, among others. There’s a feel to the third world one becomes familiar with: beggars, infrastructure that doesn’t […]

Things I learned from Margaret Brennan’s interview with Donald Trump

Here are some things I picked up about Trump vs The World.

He doesn’t listen to his intelligence advisors. About anything.

He’s afraid of what’s in Mueller’s report and he thinks Bill Barr is going to squash it for him. At no point does he say he has nothing to hide.

Pompeii is probably going to run for Senate to bring his own brand of post millennialist dominionism to the legislative process. Huzzah.

He wants to keep troops in Iraq so that he can keep an eye on Iran. He distrusts his intelligence chiefs. And anyway, Iran is like the vorpal bunny:

Might have to attack.

Kim Jun Un isn’t really serious about his nukes. It’s all so tiresome for Kim. {{flipping through psych textbook toooooo… ah, yes, projection}}

Sounds like Donald lost this round to Kim. He was pwned. Who didn’t see that coming?

He has no plan for the shutdown because there’s nowhere to go that wouldn’t piss someone off bigly.

He’s thinking about invading Venezuela, probably to distract from that Wall thing.

And finally, he thinks football is too dangerous for Barron’s brain but, you know, perfectly ok for the brains of black players who can no longer protest police brutality. But not to fear, ratings are up for the NFC. So YEAH.

I couldn’t help but notice that Brennan cut the interview short.

Then probably spent time in an art museum trying to recenter herself.

  1. Thank you for enduring the word salad spewed forth from Trump…I sometimes think that his repulsiveness works in his favor in that most are repelled and ignore him, rather than take the time to listen. He is the CIC, after all, which allows him to wield an inordinate amount of power.

    RD, thank you for this wonderful blog and providing insight even as you experience such a life altering loss. ❤

  2. OIl prices are going up, because Venezuela was our fourth largest exporter of oil. But Trump does not care, nor does he care about anything outside of himself. Not about any of the citizens, not about complex world issues. It has always been about benefitting and gratifying himself. Thus, outside of being frightened or upset, I do not understand why anyone bothers to interview him. He knows nothing, and is proud of it. He is various forms of insane. He never surprises to the upside about anything. Whatever Russia tells him to do, he does, that is his foreign policy. He is worse than even most could have imagined. The media made him, so they feel obliged to talk to him. I wish that every right-thinking person in this country would not watch one second of his State of the Union, thus giving him the lowest ratings ever. I don’t watch infomercials, so I will certainly not watch that.,which is much more dangerous propaganda than the average grifting huckster trying to convince people to buy their get rich quick plan or curling iron.

  3. I won’t watch SOTU either or the commentary, but i would like to see Stacey Abrams.
