The Chameleon President

Just as candidate Trump is different from President Trump……the president we elected is not the president we have gotten.

Trump talks one game and does another.  He changes with the wind….political winds, that is…..

MOAB sounds more like a war-torn biblical kingdom than the GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast, aka “the mother of all bombs.” Still, give Donald Trump credit. Only the really, really big bombs, whether North Korean nukes or those 21,600 pounds of MOAB, truly get his attention. He wasn’t even involved in the decision to drop the largest non-nuclear bomb in the US arsenal for the first time in war, but his beloved generals — “we have the best military people on Earth” — already know the man they work for, and the bigger, flashier, more explosive, and winninger, the better.

It was undoubtedly the awesome look of that first MOAB going off in grainy black and white on Fox News, rather than in Afghanistan, that appealed to the president. Just as he was visibly thrilled by all those picturesque Tomahawk cruise missiles, the equivalent of nearly three MOABS, whooshing from the decks of US destroyers in the eastern Mediterranean and heading, like so many fabulous fireworks, toward a Syrian airfield — or was it actually an Iraqi one? “We’ve just fired 59 missiles,” he said, “all of which hit, by the way, unbelievable, from, you know, hundreds of miles away, all of which hit, amazing… It’s so incredible. It’s brilliant. It’s genius. Our technology, our equipment, is better than anybody by a factor of five.”

  1. Isn’t it the American way to shoot first then ask questions later….. yeah, we’re an awesome country with technology five times better than anyone else. What a crock of crap that actually is! We couldn’t be diplomatic to save our lives and it will be our downfall.

  2. Whether President or Prime Minister, the one we elect is never the same as the one we get.
    That’s the history of ‘Democracy’, as far as I can see.
    Regards, Pete.

  3. Suddenly, I have images of Dump’s male cabinet members and pentagon staff, when they talk about the MOAB, they hook their thumbs in their pants, pull ’em up proud and grunt “‘merica!”
