We’ve all been watching Trump demonstrate his ineptness for the office of President since Day One. We’ve been blessed that until now we haven’t had a real crisis while he flailed about and tweeted irresponsibly. Another blessing is that he undermined Congressional efforts to destroy health care and his own to ban Muslims. Now that crisis has finally arrived and it’s one mostly of his own making.
We knew that Kim Jong-un, the one man whose hair is as bad as Trump’s is a madman. A petulant son of a former tyrant, looking to make his own mark and giving the world the finger. That exact description fits Trump as well, including the madman part. In the escalating war of words between two nations with nuclear capabilities. Which one if any of the two petty fools will back down first.
Trump made probably the stupidest comment of his career (and that’s saying something) when he said, “North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen… he has been very threatening beyond a normal state. They will be met with fire, fury, and frankly power the likes of which this world has never seen before.”
North Korea promptly responded by threatening to “destroy Guam.”
Can this all be about his need to distract us from rumors of Pence already starting his 2020 campaign? It could be the Russia investigation or could it simply be his low polls? His apologists suggest it’s possibly a part of a subtle, coordinated strategy with other Cabinet officials. To paraphrase Samuel L. Jackson from “Jackie Brown.” (Seems like Sam had the appropriate line for most everything) “If you know Donald Trump like I do, you know there’s no way in hell he’s part of a coordinated strategy.”
So what’s the idiot going to do now? The one in the White House. Maybe his Generals can talk him down and despite having left empty almost all the State Department positions in that and every other part of the world… exercise some diplomacy. We have a President that shouldn’t be allowed to speak, to tweet and when Mueller finishes with his ass… remain. It can’t come a minute too soon.
