Trump Insults the Speaker of the House, Are We Surprised? Absolutely Not… It’s His Fallback MO

“You’re going to hear the president say we walked out. We were offended deeply by his treatment of the speaker of the House of Representatives. The president in my view has created a crisis in the Middle East. A crisis that undermines the world’s confidence in America. This crisis required a rational, reasonable discussion between those of us elected by the American people to set policy. Unfortunately, the meeting deteriorated into a diatribe, as Leader Schumer has said, and very offensive accusations being made by the president of the United States. I have served with six presidents. I have been in many, many, many meetings like this. Never have I seen a president treat so disrespectfully a co-equal branch of the government of the United States.
— House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer

Folks this was said by a respected member of the opposition party. Trying to recall any such statement being made by either a democrat or a republican prior to Trump’s tenure in the White House about a sitting president. I cannot.

Given all we have observed with our own eyes and seen with our own ears during these past three very trying years leads us to believe every word Senator Hoyer said.

Why it matters: Pelosi suggested that Trump was “shaken up” after the House voted overwhelmingly and in bipartisan fashion to condemn his decision to move U.S. troops out of northern Syria. Democrats and Republicans alike, including those like Sen. Lindsey Graham who have been among Trump’s most loyal defenders, have lobbed intense criticism at the president over allegations that he has abandoned the Kurds.

  •  Between the lines: This was the first face-to-face meeting between Trump and Pelosi since House Democrats launched a formal impeachment inquiry. The Washington Post notes that Trump has previously maintained a veneer of respect toward Pelosi because she acted as a buffer against impeachment for so long.

According to a Democratic source, Trump started the meeting with a “bombastic” monologue that included bragging about his letter to letter to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, claiming he had “agreed” to take part in the meeting when it was, in fact, called by the White House. Trump also suggested that that there are communists in Syria and that Democrats would like that.

  • At one point, Trump told Pelosi: “I hate ISIS more than you do.” Schumer later asked about his plan for Syria, and Trump said: “Our plan is to keep the American people safe.” Pelosi responded: “That’s not a plan. That’s a goal.”
  • Trump tried to blame President Obama for the situation in Syria and called Pelosi a “third-grade politician.”
  • Hoyer responded, “This is not useful,” before he and Pelosi stood and left the meeting. As they left, Trump stated, “Goodbye, we’ll see you at the polls.” Schumer left shortly after.

The other side: House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) told reporters that Pelosi “stormed out of the meeting” and sought to make it “unproductive” and “political” in a moment of crisis.

  • The White House said in a statement: “The President was measured, factual and decisive, while Speaker Pelosi’s decision to walk out was baffling. … While Democratic leadership chose to storm out and get in front of the cameras to whine, everyone else in the meeting chose to stay in the room and work on behalf of this country.”

The King Of Disinformation and Propaganda… DJT

Exacerbating this situation is Trump’s willingness to traffic in rank disinformation and propaganda. For instance, Trump’s ad attacking Biden claims Biden tried to remove a prosecutor targeting his son (a lie) and insisting that Democrats want to impeach him merely because he opposed “corruption” in Ukraine (also a lie).

 

Trump has been trafficking in lies and deceit since day one of his initial campaign. He is a “man” no informed and responsible individual would ever trust, let alone support.

But this is America. The land where as long as the economy is good, the country is near full employment, and terrorists aren’t flying planes into buildings apparently all is good.

Put a different way the truth is America just doesn’t care if its president is a god damn lying crook as long as the economy is good, the country is near full employment, and terrorists aren’t flying planes into buildings. But I repeat myself.

America, for most of its history has been a nation with values, principles, character, and a conscience. All that has been changing over the past four decades.

It really all started with Ronald Reagan who held that no republican should ever say a bad word about a fellow republican. Or words to that effect. Since then the club pledge (now turned into a cultist pledge) has grown stronger and become almost an unwritten law.

In essence conservative republicans and conservative evangelicals have absolutely NO problem with supporting a thrice married adulterer,  a scum who brags that he can grab pussy  and do anything he wants because he’s rich, a dude who cavorts with porn stars and strippers, a scam artist that bilked millions from people who went to his Trump “University”, an  autocratic leader who demonstrates his love for tyrants across the globe, a shameless idiot who has no problem throwing our allies under the bus (the Kurds), and the list goes on and on.

Present day conservative republicans and conservative evangelicals cheer him on. This land is no longer the America of my grandparents, my parents, or my youth. The America I was proud of and loved has changed. Trump has effectively killed it..

However, Donald J. Trump did not start this. Reagan planted the seed. GOP republicans watered and fed it. It grew strong and hideous… America was ripe for Trump and his sycophant’s and cultists.

America will deserve what it gets if Trump is not removed. This is a painful thing to admit but Americans may very well put him in office again.  If that happens this country will be become a shell of what it once was.

If the above happens who knows, perhaps Trump will declare a national emergency in October 2023 and proclaim himself Supreme Ruler Don’t laugh. He’s already been setting the stage with prior comments he’s made.
