Why I am Embarrassed

President Trump is now blaming Obama for Russian hacking. A month ago he did not think there was hacking, but now that it’s getting harder to lie about it, like always, it is Obama’s fault.

Trump calls CNN, ABC, fake news, among others, only deciding that Fox is real news at a press conference in front of an international audience. He even refused to take questions from CNN, something no other President has ever done.

Trump claims our respect overseas has gone up since he became President. The opposite is true! He had to meet the Queen of England in the boonies, where he managed not to bow, walked in front of her, and was only given a very short tea because there were massive demonstrations against his visit in London. President Obama and his wife were given a tea, a state dinner, and invited to stay overnight in the Palace. Then he went to Scotland to golf, more massive protests, you could even hear the protestors the whole time he was golfing!

He insults the leaders of our best allies, calling Canada a threat to our security and insulting Justin Trudeau, although not to his face! Made statements that Germany is in thrall to Russia, and that Theresa May was a bad leader and that he had told her how to do Brexit but she ignored him and that her political competitor would make a great Prime Minister! The first time an American President has inserted himself into a foreign allies politics! He did these things on record, some on video, then tried to say they were fake news when he was accosted by the news media, all fake of course!

Trump is still trumpeting his successful talks with Kim Jung Un while North Korea is still secretly building and enhancing their nuclear arsenal! China has hired workers under the guise of an educational program, who send all their wages back to their government. This also gives North Korea a way to buy luxury electronics and other goods to keep its rich and powerful supporters of Kim happy!

American satellite surveillance and Japanese ships have observed oil transfers from Chinese tankers to Korean tankers. Russia also participates in the Korean worker/slave scheme and has increased the number of workers recently. Both Russia and China ignore any economic sanctions they can surreptitiously get around. I don’t think Russia or China really want a nuclear North Korea, but both like slave labor in their factories, and both want to take advantage of an American President who they can manipulate just like the Howdy Doody of old he resembles!

Trump admires the political strongman and desires to emulate them. He is a bully and like most bullies a coward. He makes nice in front of our allies, then tweets nasty at them from the safety of his aircraft or throne room! He tells lies that I see his party scrambling to explain or justify. Lies that are so blatant and so easily proven to be a lie. This is one thing you can check for yourself. He will say one thing in a statement, or a tweet, and then in a tweet or statement hours later say exactly the opposite. So one has to be the lie, pick the one you like best!
