Words of Un-Wisdom …

Trump held a rally in Toledo, Ohio, last Thursday, less than a week after ordering the assassination of a high-level foreign official, nearly starting a war, and indirectly causing the deaths of 176 people.  Tonight, I would like to share some of his words of wisdom with you, so you can see just what a brilliant leader this nation has.  And, of course I cannot resist an occasional snarky comment of my own.

  • “So, we have all forms of energy. We have every form of energy and we are doing great, but they want to cripple your state’s economy. And our air and our water right now is cleaner than it’s been in 40 years, and sadly, I can’t say historic because, you know, a couple of hundred years ago there was nobody here, right? So, I assume that 200 or 300 years ago was cleaner, probably. You never know, but our water and our air is as clean as it’s ever been, and I took us out of that horrible Paris accord.” A couple of hundred years ago there was nobody here?  According to the latest scientific journals, humans have been on earth for approximately 60,000 years, and on what is now known as the North American continent for some 17,000 years.  Dumb, Donnie, dumb.  And about that clean air … that you have made progressively worse in your vendetta against our last real president, President Barack Obama.

  • “We are finally putting America first. But while we are creating jobs and killing terrorists, the Washington Democrats are wasting America’s time with demented hoaxes and crazy witch hunts. Think of it. From the day I came down that escalator, it started. Who the hell else could have taken this stuff, right? Do I get some credit for that? Most guys would have been in the corner with their thumb in their mouth. Saying, mommy, mommy take me home. These are bad people.”  Why should “America” be first?  We are among the most arrogant, greedy, bigoted people on earth!  Really, Donnie?  You who whines like a toddler whenever anybody criticizes you?

  • “Last year alone, ICE officers, who by the way, are heroes. These are brave people. I don’t want to do it. You don’t want to do it. Let’s see if you could do it? You could do it over there, you could do it. Mostly, you would not. I mean, I’ve seen it. They have these people, they like are killers and our guys are here and they run and they call them nets, they have nets, and they run and they’re swinging and punching.” Do what, Donnie???  Chase poor refugees with butterfly nets?  Do you know what you’re talking about?  I sure as hell don’t!

  • “Democrats stand for crime, corruption, and chaos. Republicans stand for law, order, and justice. That’s really the way it is. I have to tell you, a lot of things are happening.” Um, yeah, like the illegal assassination of an Iranian general that has no justification, like nearly starting a war, like destroying our reputation in the Western world, like …

  • “But see, I don’t like doing this too soon. I did it with Pocahontas. I came up with this great name. I came up with a lot of different stuff. I said she was a total fraud and everybody believed me, and she went down.” The leader of one of the largest western nations bragging about his bigotry and misogyny, and about making up childish names to taunt an opponent.   Just wow.

  • “Virtually, every top Democrat also now supports late-term abortion, ripping babies straight from the mother’s womb right up until the moment of birth. That is why I’ve asked Congress to prohibit late-term abortion because Republicans believe that every child is a sacred gift from God.” Um, Donnie? “Ripping babies from the womb at the moment of birth”?  That’s called “childbirth” and it is a natural process … the same one by which you, unfortunately, came into the world.

  • “Now, you have a President who is standing up for America. Great. At stake in our present battle is the survival of the American nation. If you want your children to inherit the blessings that generations of Americans have fought and died for, and fought so hard to secure, then, we must devote everything we have toward victory in 2020. We have to win. Only this way can we save the America that we love and drain the Washington swamp once and for all, and I have seen that dirty, rotten swamp better than anybody else in America, a lot of crooked people.” YOU appointed all those crooked people, Donnie! YOU filled the swamp! “Who would’ve thought that’s possible? Who would have thought that’s possible? We will defend privacy, free speech, religious liberty, and the right to keep and bear arms. And above all, we will never stop fighting for the sacred values that bind us together as one big beautiful America. We support, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.”  Would that be the same Constitution you have trampled, spat on, and lit afire?

  • “I am such a smart guy. I said this is the most brilliant thing ever and I went back to my people and I said, you know, I have an idea.” Mark the day on your calendar folks.

  • “And we have Bernie and Nancy Pelosi, we have them all.” All two of ’em, Donnie?  Let’s just count and make sure, shall we?

  • “We got to get lined up, Adam, you little pencil neck, nine inches.” If he has nine inches, he’s got you beat by five, Donnie.

And this is the one that takes the cake, my friends …

  • “I’m going to tell you about the Nobel Peace Prize. I’ll tell you about that. I made a deal. I saved a country, and I just heard that the head of that country is now getting the Nobel Peace Prize for saving the country. I said, what — did I have something to do with it? Yeah, but you know that’s the way it is. As long as we know, that’s all that matters, OK? I saved a big war, saved a couple of them, but under my administration, we will never make excuses for America’s enemies. We will never hesitate in defending American lives, and we will never stop working to defeat radical Islamic terrorism, never.” The winner of the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize was Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed.  Mr Abiy has introduced massive liberalising reforms to Ethiopia, shaking up what was a tightly controlled nation.  He freed thousands of opposition activists from jail and allowed exiled dissidents to return home. He has also allowed the media to operate freely and appointed women to prominent positions.  I fail to see what Trump believes he contributed … 🤷

Well, there you have it folks … as they say in poker … “read ‘em and weep”.  These are the words of the person who holds our lives in his tiny hands.  Think about that one for a minute.

  1. There was a time when I found Trump’s mendacity mystifying. Over time I became inured to it, it became just as expected each day as the sun rising and setting. What remains somewhat mystifying to me is that Trump has not become more adept at lying, he surely has had enough practice or is it that he simply does not care if he is believed?! What should be mystifying to me, but is no longer, is that the majority of the GOP in Congress enable this by their silence and more notably their support of him. This says as much about them as it does about Trump…Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham, to name but two. But, what is still mystifying to me is the undying adoration and support of Trump’s rabid base! It should not require the brain of an Einstein or a Stephen Hawking to see through the exaggerations and outright lies that Trump tosses about like confetti at these campaign events…easily disproved, but they are accepted with applause and cheering!! That is truly mystifying! There are times that I think Trump is crazy like a fox, laughing at all of the fools that believe his lies! Thank-you!

    • I know just what you mean, but that is what I’ve feared all along, that the public would become inured to his asinine behaviour and rhetoric. There is a danger in that, for the less attention we pay, the less outraged we are, the more emboldened he becomes. I’m not sure, but I think Trump has become no more adept at lying because, like everything else, he thinks he does it well. And, bottom line is that in the long run, he really doesn’t care because he thinks his kingdom is secure, that he won’t be overthrown, so it doesn’t much matter that his serfs & peasants see through his silly lies. He is extremely facinorous, as are Mitch, Lindsey, Devin, Jim, Kellyanne, and … well, you get the picture … the whole rest of his court. The sycophants in Congress are, I hope, throwing away their careers, but only if we toss Trump out later this year. If he remains, then they will still be favoured little knights, though without a conscience. What angers me most, I think, is the 40% of people in this nation who support this ignoramus, and who support the members of Congress who support him. They either cannot or will not see that he is rapidly taking this nation down the path to a dictatorship. In my estimation, we are about 55% there already. Sigh.


  2. Sigh. I am in continual disbelief of this man and of how many people don’t see through him. Last night I watched Frontline – America’s Great Divide: From Obama to Trump. It was eye-opening. I will admit back then I wasn’t as interested in American politics so some of the content was new to me. It was interesting to see how Trump had apparently been waiting for the right opportunity to strike.

    • That Frontline episode sounds interesting … I shall see if I can find it to watch online. Thanks for the heads-up. Well, we can’t possibly keep up with everything, and it’s only recently that I’ve become fascinated by the political maneuverings of the UK, in light of Brexit. For several decades, the U.S. political scene was fairly stable, not much to fret over. And then came 9/11, Bush’s invasion of Iraq, the election of an African-American president, and now … we have gone from dignity, accountability and integrity to a three-ring circus in just under three years. Sigh. Every night I go to bed hoping to wake in the morning and find it was all just a horrible nightmare.

    • 🤣🤣🤣 You caught me off guard with that one and I laughed so hard I nearly choked on my coffee! I think he meant something other than sex, and he was referring to Senator Elizabeth Warren, who he nicknamed Pocahontas because she claims Native American ancestry and Trump thought he was being funny. But still, he was being cruel, just not a necrophile! I haven’t called him that since he was running in 2016 … you’ll not that whenever I have to call him a ‘man’, I always put it in quotes. My small way of striking back. That, and I never refer to him by his title. 😉 🙋


    • So true. If you manage to maintain the sense of dumbfounding disgust you felt the first time you heard him speak, it becomes a very heavy load to carry around. Become indifferent to it may actually be more harmful on the long run though…

      • If we become inured to all the atrocities, then we are doomed. It’s easy to do, for as you say, it becomes quite a burden, takes its toll, but we cannot let our guard down, cannot allow this to become the ‘norm’.


  3. about the 163 lives, if you’re talking about the Iranian jet, trump didn’t have anything to do with that. It was the Iranians themselves who shot down their own jet. You can’t blame trump for every single thing that goes wrong. But, this is the progressive mindset today, blame the president for everything bad in the world, every.single.thing.
    We all know he lies, we all know he doesn’t keep his campaign promises but like I always say, at least be fair about it.

    • As I recall, it was a Ukrainian jet with 63 Canadians aboard.
      And it all began with trump’s pullout of the Iranian nuclear deal. He definitely has blood on his hands.
      And so I guess the Republican mindset is to blame everything on Obama or the democrats.

      • Thanks, Mary … and yes, everything that happens is somehow Obama’s fault. But, what you want to bet that if Trump died in his sleep tonight, there would be such a collective sigh of relief from the republicans in Congress that it would blow the roof off the capitol building!


    • As David and Mary both noted, it is not unfair to say that Trump has the blood of the 176 people who died on his hands, for his assassination of General Soleimani set the ball in motion. The night the plane was shot down, the Iranians were launching missiles at U.S. military bases in retaliation for Trump’s wrongful action, and the Ukrainian jet happened to turn in a direction such that it appeared to be headed for a sensitive area. Yes, the Iranians shot it down and they bear some of the blame, but it was Trump who pushed over the first domino that led to this result. I try to be fair, and I don’t think I was unfair in this one, either. If I were a spouse of parent of one of those who died, I would be out for blood … Trump’s blood. I’m tired of him playing Dictator of the World.


  4. Jill, allow me to sum up the speech for you. “I love me. I am the smartest person, maybe in history. Anyone who criticizes me is stupid, un-American and a liar. Did I say I love me?” said The Donald.

    • You win the grand prize for summing up the whole of Donald Trump! Every speech he gives has the same theme, doesn’t it? I had the strangest dream last night, that he was taped to a wall, and I was repeatedly stabbing him with a huge knife. Sigh.


    • I am not a fan of the word ‘stupid’, but more than a few times I have used it on those very people you mention. I generally consider them ignorant, but sometimes they surpass even that and meander on into stupid. In the words of Forrest Gump, “Stupid is as stupid does”.
