I get the feeling there are those, such as Mattis, who are staying on because they feel like they might be saving their country (possibly even the world) by attempting to curb the most egregious impulses of the idiot in chief. Must be soul-destroying. Got to give them some respect for that.

 

 

Tennessee Senator Bob Corker said something similar to that.

 

 

I think Secretary Tillerson, Secretary Mattis, and Chief of Staff Kelly are those people that help separate our country from chaos, and I support them very much

I'm wondering what will come first: Trump's impeachment, or him running out of people to serve at his pleasure. Looks like Tillerson may be the next one to go, according to the Washington Post.

And this sentence sums up Trump perfectly :-

 

And as Tillerson has traveled the globe, Trump believes his top diplomat often seems more concerned with what the world thinks of the United States than with tending to the president’s personal image.

Holy, crap, if this is not some horrible way of thinking of the world. Moron.

I have been seeing reports that Tillerson called Trump a moron. Hotly denied, of course, but networks are standing their ground so probably true.

 

 

 

 

Of course calling someone a moron can range from mortal insult to a term of endearment - depending how it's said.

 

Trump's unnecessary denial pretty well confirms that it did happen, that it was an insult, and that he is a moron. 

 

Edit - oh wait, news networks are reporting that Tillerson called Trump a "f#^&ing moron". 

 

Twitter is being merciless - no doubt a few more users will be blocked by the POTUS.

 

 

Why did they not wake you up when the Las Vegas Massacre call came? instead they went to Gen Kelly?
Because you are a Moron

 

Why did Mullaney come out on TV after you said you will wipe the puerto rico debt to say they are not?
Because you are a Moron

 

Why did you tell a hurricane victim with a destroyed house : Have a good time?
Because you are a moron

 

Why did you ask an air force dude to say a word or two praising the coast guard?
Because you are a moron

 

Why did you say you are the first president to visit puerto rico after a disaster when you are not?
because you are a moron

 

Why did you tell 3 million americans rescuing and helping them is messing up with your budget?
Because you are a moron

 

"You are a moron" is the new " you must be a redneck" joke
and this is all in just the last 48 HOURS

Interesting...

 

http://www.todayifoundout.com/index.php/2010/03/the-words-moron-imbecile-and-idiot-mean-different-things/ 

 

The words moron, imbecile, and idiot mean different things. In psychology, an idiot has the least intelligence on the IQ scale (this now is equivalent to someone who is mentally retarded or the more politically correct “mentally challenged”); an imbecile is not quite as dumb as an idiot and is now considered equivalent to moderate retardation; a moron is then the highest level of intelligence for someone who is mentally retarded, thus considered as being mildly mentally retarded. Specifically, those who have an IQ between 0 and 25 are idiots; IQs between 26 and 50 are considered imbeciles; and those who have an IQ between 51 and 70 are considered morons.

 

In Arkansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, New Mexico, and Ohio, idiots don’t have the right to vote.

 

In California, idiots are one of six types of people who are not capable of committing any form of crime.





Any fool can make money, but it takes a special person to earn the respect of respectable people.

San Juan mayor wears 'nasty' shirt on live TV after Trump calls her 'nasty'

 

All she did was criticise America's slow response to the disaster.

 

 

The mayor of San Juan is using fashion to make a statement to the world, and the President of the United States.

They have been having a word of wars on Twitter a long time before he came PoUS. No surprise here. Yep, gutter trash, both of them.

 Why should a mayor who has probably had little sleep since the hurricane put up with BS from a President of the USA?? This all started after America basically ignored their calls for more help as there was no water, electricity etc. It was a disaster zone that America basically ignored until the Mayor spoke up.

Rubbish.

 

It's an appropriate - and in fact relatively mild response - to the abuse Trump hurled at her.

Trump came to Puerto Rico like an emperor: with pomp and little sympathy

 


President Donald Trump arrived in Puerto Rico like an emperor, coming to scold his uncooperative subjects. “I hate to tell you, Puerto Rico, but you’ve thrown our budget a little out of whack,” he said during a visit to the island on Tuesday. He might as well have blamed us for throwing ourselves in the path of a hurricane.

 

Apart from the cost, the worst part about this catastrophe for Trump seems to be how damn ungrateful these Puerto Ricans are. The president called the mayor of San Juan, the capital, a “politically motivated ingrate” over the weekend. Then, on Tuesday, he suggested the island was exaggerating its woes. Puerto Rico isn’t facing “a real catastrophe like Katrina” the president said. Just grow up and stop all your whining, in other words.

 

Trump arrived on the island more than two weeks after Hurricane Maria hit. Despite what he claims, the situation is still devastating. Only 5% of the electrical grid has been repaired; only 17% of the cellphone towers are working and more than half the island has no running water. Most of Puerto Rico’s 3.5 million citizens have to stand every day in hellish lines for food, water, gas and medicines. This is the new normal for us and our families.

 

 

The rest of this short opinion piece is well worth reading.

MikeB4: Joke of the year surely

 

Could be joke of the century - Hitler and Stalin got nominated, but that was so last century.
