And Then There Was Phoenix

On Monday night Pres. Trump had a good speech….although I do not agree with his proposal…..it was good….he made good points to lay out why he made his decision to act as he will.

Yes, I would even say that it was presidential.

The part that I appreciated was his call for peace in this country that we should come together and work as a nation (not all his words just my paraphrase)….it was good and it was presidential….but like I stated I do not think this is the best way forward for Afghanistan.

Then Tuesday night he, Trump,  goes on a campaign rally in Phoenix…..

After a brilliant speech that was very presidential and then we get the speech of a spoiled spiteful bully of a 12 year old…..he could not let his Monday speech have legs for a couple of days before he pisses on his success.

President Trump unleashed a new torrent of criticism on the media Tuesday night over the coverage of his Charlottesville remarks. At a political rally in Phoenix, Trump also stopped short of pardoning former Sheriff Joe Arpaio, but strongly he hinted he would do so soon, reports NBC News. “It’s time to expose the crooked-media deceptions and to challenge the media for their role in fomenting divisions,” Trump told about 10,000 supporters inside the Phoenix Convention Center, per the Arizona Republic. “For the most part, honestly, these are really, really dishonest people.” Trump rehashed his remarks after the Virginia violence, though the New York Times notes that he did not repeat his much-criticized theme that both sides were to blame, and he accused the media of distorting his comments.

“I hit ’em with neo-Nazi. I hit them with everything,” said the president. “I got the white supremacists, the neo-Nazi. I got them all in there. Let’s see. KKK, we have KKK,” said Trump, who had taken flak for waiting two days to condemn those groups. As for Arpaio, Trump drew a rousing response when he asked of the former Maricopa County sheriff, “Do the people in this room like Sheriff Joe?” and “Was Sheriff Joe convicted for doing his job?” He then added that he wouldn’t be pardoning Arpaio on Tuesday night in order to avoid controversy. But “I’ll make a prediction: I think he’s going to be just fine.” Outside, police arrested four protesters during the night, reports the AP. Things were mostly peaceful, but officers fired tear gas at the protesters after they say some began throwing objects as the rally was breaking up.

He does just what he blames others of….he hates anyone that will not bend over for him or kiss his ass.

After more than 7 months we have nothing positive in his win column.

This is what will pass as governing for the next 3 and half years.

  1. They showed a lot of coverage of the Arizona meeting on the news. He had a lot of support inside the hall, and the police tacked demonstrators outside. Another day in politics…
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. “Insanity is a sane reaction to an insane world.” — R. D. Laing

    The only question to be asked now is, who gets to define insanity? I don’t think there is anyone in the political world who is qualified, as they all exhibit signs of their own instability; neither does the greater portion of humanity exhibit anything resembling clarity of mind…. In short, I think, as a species, we’re pretty well committed to remaining insane, in comparison to the rest of the universe….

    Karma, ffolkes, has TWO sides; we humans seem to think there is only one….

    gigoid, the dubious

      1. Good call; Google agrees with you… In fact, I plugged that in, & the second entry was about 500 picture memes with that quote on them, mostly with a bust of Cicero (Marcus Tullius, to be exact….)…. Like most of the ancient sages, it’s an observation of how human nature behaves…. which, makes it a warning very few heed….
