Comparing Obama's imperfections to Trump is like comparing someone who steals power from work to change his escooter, to someone who attempts to blow up a dam because he didn't like his electricity bill.

Nobel secretary regrets Obama peace prize

BBC News, 2015 BT (Before Trump)

Awarding the Nobel Peace Prize to US President Barack Obama in 2009 failed to achieve what the committee hoped it would, its ex-secretary has said.

Geir Lundestad told the AP news agency that the committee hoped the award would strengthen Mr Obama.

Instead, the decision was met with criticism in the US. Many argued he had not had any impact worthy of the award.

Trump Just Wants to Be #1

Jimmy Kimmel Live

Iran launched a retaliatory missile attack against US troops in Iraq while Trump was busy bragging about himself to Rush Limbaugh where he claimed he has wiped out ISIS (he has not), and claimed he is #1 on Facebook (he’s not). Meanwhile Republican Congressman Paul Gosar tweeted himself into a pickle with a fake photo, and before the ban of deep fakes takes effect on Facebook, we wanted to get one in under the wire, specifically Donald Trump on “Toddlers & Tiaras.”

The New York Times - A Narrative Collapses as Trump Tweets: ‘It Doesn’t Really Matter’

 

Jan. 14, 2020

 


WASHINGTON — In the 10 days since it carried out the drone strike that killed Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani, the Trump administration has been struggling to draft an after-the-fact narrative to justify it. 

 

On Monday, President Trump put an end to that hash of explanations. “It doesn’t really matter,” he tweeted, “because of his horrible past.”

 

 

 

 

Until that message on Twitter, the administration had insisted in various ways that General Suleimani, Iran’s most important military official, was planning myriad “imminent” attacks. ...

 

With the president’s latest utterance, he bolstered critics of a strike that had raised fears of an all-out war with Iran and had led Iraq to call on the United States to leave the country. 

 

And, the critics wondered, was it reckless and irresponsible for the United States to kill Iran’s second most important leader if the reason did not “really matter”? ...

As is well-known and thoroughly documented, Trump is a pathological fantasist and liar. He makes things up to suit his whims. If called out on his fabrications, he starts squirming. If completely pinned down, he dismisses the matter as not really important anyway.

The Washington Post - Eyeing swift impeachment trial, Trump’s legal team aims to block witnesses and cast doubt on charges

 

Jan. 16, 2020

 


White House lawyers are trying to engineer the fastest impeachment trial in American history, aiming to have President Trump acquitted by the Senate without witnesses and after just a few days of proceedings, according to senior administration officials.

 

Trump’s desire for a short trial has solidified over the past few weeks, as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) delayed transmitting two articles of impeachment to the Senate because of concerns about how the trial would be structured. 

 

The White House, which previously supported a more expansive trial in the GOP-led Senate, has now accepted the idea that senators should make quick work of acquitting Trump. ...

If it involves Trump and friends, it's going to be creepy. More intimidation from the President's fellow mobsters.
