Boom! (As in “Lowering the…”)

BREAKING: Trump Just Tore Into Republican Leadership Over Children In Cages Hoax

Donald Trump let them have it with both barrels. Apparently, it was Trump unleashed like the D.C. Swamp hadn’t yet seen.

“You really want to try and win your election in November without me? I don’€™t think so.”

“I’m following the law as it’€™s written. If you don’€™t like the law then Congress needs to change it. It’€™s simple. Simple. I’€™m with you but if you don’t like it you need to do something about it! It looks bad. Sure. Really bad. If you want to change that then change the law. DO SOMETHING. You people (Congress) have to change it. That’s how it has to be done.

“€œWe all know what it is. It’€™s fake. Fake news. CNN it’€™s fake. The pictures that was Obamas, during his administration, not mine. You can’t let it scare you. That’€™s what they want. That’s why they do it. This law, you just need to change it if you don’€™t like it. And that’s the way it is. I’€™m not here to save you. I’€™m here to let you know I’ll support you but you have to do something. Or not. But if you don’€™t do something don’€™t come crying to me about it okay? Right?

“€œWhy is this coming up now? I mean, it’s so obvious am I right? Mitch knows. The economy, jobs, North Korea, there’€™s so much great news they had to do the fake news. I’€™m not saying the pictures aren’€™t bad. They’€™re bad. Certainly not good. They make it look bad.

“You have to do something. You have to work together. It could be such a big, beautiful thing if you did that. The Democrats won’€™t help. We all know that. They think this is good for them. We’€™ll see about that.

“But doing something, working together, isn’t that why you’€™re here? It should be. And if you don’€™t do that and November doesnâ’€™t work out for you then I’€™m sorry but you shouldn’€™t be here. Go do nothing somewhere else.

“You bring me something (a bill) that makes sense and I’€™ll sign it. It’€™s so simple. It should be. But it has to make sense. It has to be good for the American people. This isn’€™t rocket science folks. It really isn’€™t. Figure it out.”€

    Riot Act, Reading #1. Reading #2 is gonna be UGGGGG-LEEEE.
    Reading #3, if there is one, well, you DON’T WANNA BE THERE.

    I am so much reminded of this scene in the 1970 movie “Cromwell.”
    I wish I had the ability to edit Trump’s head on to the body of Richard Harris and several members of Congress’ heads onto the many members of Parliament.
    (My apologies for the text over the video.)

    If that’s a transcript, Trump’s on the right track, but his corporateness is getting in the way. He’s not talking to people he can chew out and fire, they’re more like a recalcitrant zoning board that’s afraid to permit something he wants to develop. He reportedly has gotten lots of local politicians and boards to come around, but I doubt it was by chewing them out.

    Trump is finding out what happens when we refuse to spay and neuter our politicians.

  • Eskyman June 21, 2018, 10:31 AM

    Those hogs at the trough in Congress need more than a biting lecture. They need a severe ass-kickin’!
    Still, it’s nice to hear that they’re at least being informed of their shortcomings.

    [This was very strange to read; on AD the text has “TM” signs after each apostrophe and an “oe” symbol after some opening quote marks (but not all,) none of which shows in the original piece which was quoted. Is this just my browser? Does anyone else see these marks? How weird!]

  • AmericusMagnus June 21, 2018, 12:49 PM

    Dr. Jay, I refuse to believe any of our politicians have balls.

  • Daniel Day June 21, 2018, 12:51 PM

    Eskyman, in Chrome, I’m getting “TM” signs after each apostrophe but no other odd symbols this time. I have seen the oe before.
    BillH, point well taken. Presumably, Trump hopes the public will join him in chewing out their representatives. Good luck to him and all of us with that.

  • R Daneel June 21, 2018, 7:19 PM

    Eskyman – Yeah, I see some weird stuff.

    I am glad POTUS is finally telling these arsewipes where the big dogs eat. The nutless eGoP RINO CofC Party needs to get a big clue. At this point we may as well get to the nut cuttin’ of CWII.

    Part of a posted comment I cribbed here a while ago:

    “Trump’s campaign is where America is turning to clean house while clinging to vestiges of civilized behavior. It represents an opportunity for renewal on many levels. If it doesn’t work, I fear America is in for much worse than it has already seen.”

    Staged, and cropped pix of kids in cages. (typical grade school tactic)
    A TV news article that had mexican kids off screen crying, “Mommy!”, “Daddy!”
    How ’bout that, Mexico is teaching kids from birth how to say mommy and daddy in english.
    These idiots are so transparently, well, transparent.
    Yet people like Peter Fonda and bazillions of others keep falling for it over and over.
    Ya gotta laugh.
    And get ready to slit some necks.

  • BillH June 22, 2018, 7:27 AM

    ghost, I agree with everything but the laughing part. I’m fearful that the Starbucks-iPhone crowd is increasingly falling for that crap. Maybe the mid-terms will indicate whether that’s so or not.

    “…but his corporateness is getting in the way. He’s not talking to people he can chew out and fire,…”

    his threat can be almost as effective…

    “You really want to try and win your election in November without me? I don’t think so.”
