President Trump Awakens On Saturday; Engages In Idiotic Twitter Diplomacy

(Before It's News)

Last week, Jonah Goldberg of National Review, wrote something very funny about Donald Trump and this thing he has for Saturday morning tweeting. It was in the wake of Trump’s tweets about his phones being tapped and Goldberg wrote:

Can you imagine the dread, the slow-burning existential panic that overtakes White House chief of staff Reince Priebus and press secretary Sean Spicer on Friday evenings?

After Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner — who are known to have a calming effect on the president — head off to honor the Jewish Sabbath, Priebus and Spicer have to white-knuckle it until dawn, gripping their phones with tobacco-stained fingers as they constantly refresh Twitter. They must feel like they work for a kind of werewolf who, in the dark, still hours of the weekend, transforms into a presidency-gobbling beast.

I can almost hear the wail that slipped past Priebus’s lips on Saturday morning when, just as the chirping birds provided a hopeful soundtrack for the first light of a new day, the president’s tweets started pouring forth.

It was perfectly stated. Granted, this morning’s Twitter adventure is not as reckless, but yapping about Germany and NATO with an important European ally is likely not the best use of his time:

Mr. President, you’re not a collection agency.

If you had such a GREAT meeting, why on earth would you heckle them about NATO less than 24 hours later?

Naturally, the sycophants are going to applaud this and say, “What’s wrong with him pointing out that Germany should fulfill their obligations?”

Time and a place, kids. Time and a place.

  • beig that nato is rothschilds army, a collection of debt would reduce our debt to rothchild seems we should be reduceing as much as possable and reduceing as much borrowing as possable, even if it means some goverment things go away, the constitution says a president isnt allowed to spend its country into if trump justs starts the us treasurey back up and gets intrist of that money borrowed he would have money to use and would make a sound dollar again. i have an idea if we declair war against the federal resurve bank we wouldent owe them a dime.
