“Pay No Attention To The Man Behind The Curtain,” It Was Just Me!

President Trump read some words to the press this afternoon. It can’t be called a press conference as no questions were allowed. He read from a script, probably written by someone else to keep his own words from the public.

Trump gave a glowing summary of the last week during which he claimed he raised “hundreds of millions” for NATO and everyone was pleased. He didn’t insult anyone like he did Angela Merkel when she was out of the room. He met with the Prime Minister of Great Britain and they got along famously (Trump tried his best to oust her from the government in a newspaper interview with one of Rupert Murdoch’s papers). The closest he came to telling the truth was when he mentioned he and the Queen of England walked in front of her honor guard. More accurately he stepped in front of the 92-year-old Queen, showing he has no respect for anyone or anything.

He finally came to his closed-door meeting in Helsinki with Russian President Vladimir Putin, claiming they resolved most of the problems of the world. They jointly stepped in front of press microphones and Trump claimed the Mueller investigation is “a witch hunt,” and of course, “there is no collusion.” Trump let us know Putin “strongly denied” meddling in the US Elections. And that Trump, “didn’t know why they would.”

In today’s “clarification,” Trump tried to say after reviewing the transcript and watching the video, he meant to say he “didn’t know why they wouldn’t.” And added for effect, it’s what you call a double-negative. To believe his new version, we would have to disregard everything he’s both said and failed to say about Putin and Russia since his campaign began. Even when he grudgingly acknowledged Russia did “attempt to meddle” in our elections. He couldn’t help but add, “it could have been others as well.”

When the statement ended, someone shouted three times, “Will you publicly condemn Putin?” Trump thanked everyone for coming and slinked away. It’s increasingly clear, that while Trump is publicly the President, Putin is the man behind the curtain pulling the strings.

  1. As usual, you’ve nailed it…”When the statement ended, someone shouted three times, “Will you publicly condemn Putin?” Trump thanked everyone for coming and slinked away. It’s increasingly clear, that while Trump is publicly the President, Putin is the man behind the curtain pulling the strings.” So our puppet with no clothes is unchallenged once more…

  2. I was led to this skatole solely by the image. Mr. Spivey, you have very little to offer other than racial animus and, perhaps, a rehash of the latest aspersions cast by such rabid outlets as MSNBC and CNN, from which you doubtless derive your infantile opinions. You will perceive that this theory, which you parroted 9 months or so ago, has been shown to be utterly and completely devoid of factual basis. It is, and was always, purely fictitious, meant to distract from the very real governmental collusion to thwart the election and nullify it ex post facto. How foolish you must feel to have fallen for it so readily, but such are the facts. It must be a big burden to deal with – that full standard deviation, if you get my meaning, sir.

    1. Mr. Breckinridge, please note that despite your critical tone. I approved your post so that the world can see you and judge. I note you seem to focus on race quite a bit? You accuse me of being driven by “racial animus,” in a piece which had no mention of race whatsoever. Perhaps just the notion of me criticizing your leader was enough to send you over the edge. Yes, I did get your meaning regarding “that full standard deviation.” As best that would be considered an average and I’m quite certain where I would fall in the range compared to yourself.
      You suggest that Trump is not Putin’s puppet, although all the evidence is not in yet. There is more than enough to support the position he’s little more than Putin’s bitch. Pehaps that makes you a side-piece, if you get my meaning, sir.
      I’m glad you took the time to read my piece, even if only because of the picture. I suggest that after the Mueller Report, the SDNY indictments, and the House Investigations are concluded. You revisit this piece and see how off (or correct) it turned out? Have a wonderful day!
