It looks like the short guy with the bad haircut is calling the bluff of the big guy with the bad haircut .
In case you were too busy with other things today, I would like to let you in on a bit of news: North Korea attempted to launch yet another ballistic missile. This after trump all but dared them to do it. And from what I can tell, they could care less about the geo- political ramifications of their actions. trump and his big mouth and twitter tirades have apparently pissed them off.
Speaking of trump, he seems to be closing out his first 100 days with a bang. And when I say bang, I don’t mean that in a good way.
Consider the following:
He actually praised his fellow bad haircut leader in an interview.
“President Donald Trump is currently engaged in a match of escalating rhetoric and even military posturing with Kim Jong Un. And Trump has some thoughts on his adversary — thoughts in which Trump notably appears to empathise with him.
In a new interview with Reuters, Mr Trump weighs in on whether the North Korean dictator is a rational leader by pointing to the situation in which he found himself: Succeeding his late father, Kim Jong Il, at a very young age.
“He’s 27 years old,” Mr Trump said. “His father dies, took over a regime. So say what you want, but that is not easy, especially at that age.”‘ [Source]
(Dude loves to praise despots but he rips former president Obama at every turn. You gotta love it.)
He declared that former president Obama is responsible for his administration not properly vetting an individual that THEY hired. A man, by the way, who the Obama administration actually fired.
“Donald Trump faulted former President Obama’s administration for authorizing a security clearance for Michael Flynn, his former national security adviser.In an interview with Fox News, Trump said:
“But just remember, he was approved by the Obama administration at the highest level. And when they say we didn’t vet, well, Obama I guess didn’t vet, because he was approved at the highest level of security by the Obama administration.” [Source]
Today he met with the NRA, the first president to do that since Reagan, and instead of talking about the Second Amendment and issues related to guns, he spent his time making gross insults towards a sitting US senator, and bragging about his election day victory. Again.
“I have a feeling in the next election you are going to be swamped with candidates, but you’re not going to be wasting your time,” the ex-Celebrity Apprentice host told the audience of around 10,000 at the gun group gathering Friday in Atlanta. “You’ll have plenty of those Democrats coming over, and you are going to say, ‘No sir, no thank you,’ ‘no ma’am.’ Perhaps ‘ma’am’; it may be Pocahontas. Remember that?” he added, using the deliberately mocking nickname he coined for the progressive Massachusetts senator during last year’s White House race. She has claimed Native American heritage in the past.
“But she is not big for the NRA, that I can tell you,” Trump tacked on to applause about Warren, who has ruled out or declared what many think is a likely run in the next presidential election.
Warren is on a book tour and will be in L.A. tomorrow for two public events. She also is expected to meet quietly with at least a couple of potential deep-pocket donors, sources tell me.
On the 99th day of his administration, a clearly combative Trump on Friday took the stage to cheers of “USA! USA!” and launched into a mainly from-the-teleprompter speech that touched on many otherwise expected topics besides attacking Warren.
The president talked about his surprise election win, his plan for a border wall and immigration, his strong Second Amendment support and his speeches to the gun group as a candidate. As he has many times before, and to the pleasure of the NRA audience, Trump rolled out his “Make America Great Again” tagline and also touched on law and order, terrorism, the credentials of his cabinet choices and the successful nomination of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.

Donald trump said that he thought being president would be “easier.” I think I speak for millions of Americans when I say that anytime Donald trump wants to quit, he is more than free to do so.
