Whiner-In-Chief

“I do whine because I want to win and I’m not happy about not winning and I am a whiner and I keep whining and whining until I win.” – Donald Trump to Chris Cuomo, 11 August 2015

So it should come as no surprise that he went off-script in today’s Coast Guard Academy commencement address to whine about the self-inflicted public opinion of the past few days:

“Never, ever, ever give up. Things will work out just fine. Look at the way I’ve been treated lately, especially by the media. No politician in history, and I say this with great surety, has been treated worse or more unfairly. You can’t let them get you down. You can’t let the critics and the naysayers get in the way of your dreams. I guess that’s, (we love you) thank you, I guess that’s why we won.” – Donald Trump in a commencement speech to graduates of the United States Coast Guard Academy, 17 May 2017

During the commencement, Trump was presented with a ceremonial saber. Oh great … that’s all we need … a temperamental whiny narcissist with a lethal weapon in his tiny hands!

  1. Woe is me . I am treated so unfairly. They are conducting a witch hunt about me.
    Look in the mirror oh mighty Trump,and you might understand you are a major cause of this negative energy surrounding you.

    • Yes, every last bit of his pain is self-inflicted. He just doesn’t know when or how to shut up … his mouth has no brakes, no on/off switch. Not good for a man who is about to embark on a week-long trip to the Middle East!

  2. Jill, if I were a Coast Guard graduate listening to our President, “inspired to serve” would not be the key takeaway. It would be more of a “Mom, they’re being mean to me again” takeaway. He is able to dish it, but not take it. The irony is he is the cause. Keith

    • Agreed … if I were one of the graduates this year, I think I would have felt offended to have Trump even speak at my graduation. And you’re right … it is a great irony. I think he believes that if he protests loud and long enough, it will be convincing. Personally, I lean toward the saying, “Methinks thou dost protest too much.”

  4. Now that there is a special counsel (Trump spelled it ‘councel’ in his whiny tweet this morning), I feel heartened that both sides of the aisle may be coming to their senses. He can deflect and whine all he wants. I think he’s going down in flames.

    • I hope you’re right. I am heartened by the choice of Mueller for special counsel … I think if anybody can conduct a fair investigation it will be him. I am concerned, as I read the rules, that Trump can still fire him at will … it would probably be his downfall, but when does he think that far ahead? And yes, both sides in Congress seem to be seeing the reality, but the trump-supporting citizens still seem to be under the spell. I just do not understand it!

        • No, it certainly isn’t. There have been so many jaw-dropping moments lately that I think I may need to have my jaw re-aligned! 😀 I would so love to be around in 100 years to see how this period is written in the history books!

  5. Trump whining reminds me of Jack Nicholson in the Witches of Eastwick where he shouts (kicking and stamping his feet) ‘I just want someone to look after me for a change’, ‘to pay me a little respect…’ ha ha ha.

  6. Does your WHOOP mean you believe the special counsel is bipartisan and brought in to do a real job and not just twiddle his thumbs until it’s time to say “Investigation over, nothing proved”. I’m sure the majority in the Senate would love to see this subject die a quick death now.

    • Yes, I believe he will do the job with devotion and integrity. He served … I believe 12 years as Director of the FBI and was known as a straight-shooter. I’ve never heard anything other than praise for him, and he has a history of not giving into pressure from the White House. So, if anybody can/will do the job, I believe it would be him. The only thing that still concerns me is that the rules have changed several times since Nixon fired Archibald Cox, and there are more safeguards, BUT … the president still has the power to fire a special prosecutor. Now, if he did, it seems he would be drawing his own noose, but then … we’re talking about Trump who appears to believe he is above the law. So … who knows what will come of it, but I do believe Mueller is the best man for the job.

      Cwtch Mawr!!!
