Zero Credibility

The title of this post by my fellow-blogger and friend, Keith, says it all. Zero Credibility. Credibility, like trust and respect, must be earned. Our current president has earned none of these, and the cost is likely to be our standing among our allies. Please take a moment to read and think about Keith’s post … it sums our current standing in the international community quite accurately. Thank you Keith, for your very good, concise summary and for permission to re-blog!

If you were a foreign leader, let me ask you a simple question. Would you trust the current President of the United States? Unfortunately, the answer is an obvious no. The sad part is the leaders have less trust in America.

With the continuation of his lying and insufficient knowledge of the issues, he has offended several leaders in so little time. His mistakes are unforced, so he has brought them on himself.

His worst mistake which weighs him down as investigations continue are his continuing insistence that his predecessor had his offices wire tapped. He greatly complicated this false accusation by indicting the British in the wire tapping. He damaged a relationship with our best ally, so that he would not be caught in a lie. So, his solution was to lie again.

Adding to these lies are the Russian conspiracy investigation, the incompetently handled travel bans and various…

  1. Thanks again. I think McCain’s reference to a centipede, in terms of the number of shoes to drop is apt. There are too many shoes that have walked in bad places with this man and they will come up in time. It is interesting to watch the President and Sean Spicer reinvent history to defend his various lies and stories that evolve. Manafort’s role on the campaign being diminished, e.g.

    • Agreed. Shoes … turds … things are going to come crawling out of the woodwork in the coming weeks/months, and Trump will not be able to come out of this one smelling like a rose! As I asked Don (Massenzio) earlier, where are the cries of “Lock Him Up”??? Can you imagine if the same allegations had been leveled at Hillary or any member of her staff??? Why the double standard? And, apart from Nixon/Watergate, has any other president in history been the subject of this much scandal?

  2. I believe the proof is there to get Trump out of the White House. I believe his relationship with Russia is not to the benefit of Americans and that will be part of his downfall. I’m hoping there will be enough proof to take quite a few down with him with enough evidence for prosecutions. I hope that next year the majority of the Republicans who haven’t brought Trump to heel will be paid by losing their seats at the elections and that recovery will take many years if at all.

    • I think you are right, and I hope that justice, such as it is, prevails before the ‘man’ can destroy much more. I definitely think next year’s mid-term elections will be interesting … I hope I am around to see the downfall of the radical-right who all thought Trump was to be the saviour. I am impatient … I want it to happen NOW … TODAY!!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ Huge, warm hugs, dear David!
