Trump Shamed Us All!

Over the years, I have seen several US officials address the UN in times of crisis.  Adlai Stevenson was brilliant during the Cuban Missile Crisis.  There have been some black marks too, such as the time the Republican Reich duped Colin Powell into presenting lies to the General Assembly to justify attacking Iraq.  But even then, Powell’s presentation was skillful and convincing.   But yesterday, Donald Trump, could not have embarrassed our nation more, if he had tried to sell MAGA hats to the other diplomats.


In his first address before the United Nations, an organization dedicated to maintaining global peace, Donald Trump delivered a warlike speech threatening to annihilate North Korea, criticizing Iran’s “pursuit of death and destruction,” belittling his enemies, and, naturally, bragging about his election victory. It was, in other words, par for the Trump course, if set jarringly against the backdrop of international cooperation.

“The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea,” the president said Tuesday, reading haltingly from a teleprompter as representatives for the world’s governments, as well as Rex Tillerson and Nikki Haley, looked solemnly on. “Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime,” he added, deploying a Trumpian insult he had first debuted on Twitter days before. “The United States is ready, willing, and able, but hopefully this will not be necessary. That’s what the United Nations is all about. That’s what the United Nations is for. Let’s see how they do.”…

…While every permanent member of the United Nations Security Council has affirmed the nuclear framework to dismantle Iran’s nuclear program in exchange for lifting economic sanctions, Trump on Tuesday unilaterally lashed out at the agreement, which was signed by his predecessor, as “an embarrassment.” Iran, he declared, is “another reckless regime, one that speaks openly of mass murder, vowing death to America, destruction to Israel and ruin for many leaders and nations in this room.” Calling the Iranian government a “corrupt dictatorship” and accusing it of financing terrorism, he denounced the landmark nuclear accord as “of the worst and most one-sided transactions the United States has ever entered into.”

If Trump’s bombastic rhetoric was meant to puff him up on the world stage, his characteristic insistence on enumerating his self-proclaimed accomplishments left him looking small. “The United States has done very well since Election Day last November 8,” Trump said, taking credit for the economic growth and stock market rally that has continued under his administration. “Unemployment is its lowest level in 16 year. And because of our regulatory and other reforms, we have more people working in the United States today than ever before. Companies are moving back, creating job growth the likes of which our country has not seen in a very long time, and it has just been announced that we will be spending almost 700 billion dollars on our military and defense. Our military will soon be the strongest it has ever been.”

Lawrence O’Donnell called Trump’s UN Speech the worst and most dangerous in US history.  Since MSNBC had been giving some of you trouble, here’s the clip on YouTube.

I think Trump would love to murder 25 million people, because it would give him an excuse to feel powerful.

Consider this.  By viciously repudiating the Iran deal, Trump is telling North Korea that, if they make a deal with the US to give up their nuclear weapons program, they will not be able to trust the US to keep it.  That makes conflict much more likely.

Finally, this is Netanyahu’s opinion:


If Butcher Bibi loves it, it has to be deplorable!

  1. When Bibi says “bold” and “courageous,” he actually means “foolhardy” and “stupid.”  He just doesn’t know it.  And the orange spill in aisle 1600 has been embarrassing us since last November.  Well, before that, but before that it was not yet official.

    “Oooooh”, look… a pretty fireball…


  3. Trump is working at getting a LOT of people killed – and all just to compensate for his teeny, tiny pe… fingers.

  4. Nut-and-Yahoo thought that speech was “bold and courageous”? That goes to show just what a bugnut he is. Remember Bibi is the one responsible for the ethnic cleansing in Palestine.

  5. Gawd, how awful. Our??? bogus potus is NOT the leader of our country.He’s a deplorable individual, and an embarrassment and danger to the USA.


  7. If Bibi liked his speech, it had to be horrible.  Trump displays his ignorance every time he speaks.  You are right, He embarrassed us all.

  8. There is a new book out called “Golden Stream” by I.P. Standing.  That makes more sense than Drumpf.  I did see parts of his speech and was appalled by his condescension and bullying tone.  Drumpf is like Nero . . . Drumpf will fiddle as the planet burns from nuclear war.  He sounded like he was at one of his rallies, not at the UN, a place to make peace  

  9. Sorry guys, I hate to burst that fragile bubble, but Drumpf is no longer embarrassing America in the eyes of the world; the world has passed that point some time ago. The world is now looking straight at American citizens and its Congress and wants to know how much longer it will take to rid themselves from this “president” they have chosen to put in power and have a majority in Congress support him. Knowing that the Russians played a (minor) role in it, but not owning up to it, makes it even worse. America needs to stop embarrassing itself.

    Drumpf has been analyzed from left to right and from top to bottom in most of the western world as much as he’s been analyzed in America, and you can be sure that many know all about his “personality problems”, his total lack of competence, his habitual lying, how he got to be president, who helped him, who are still helping him and what Mueller is doing. Other world leaders and their governments are not stupid and mostly steer away from him. So the reactions to his UN speech were very subdued, except for those of Netanyahu and North Korea of course, because they’ve come to expect this from him. They won’t allow him to become an embarrassment to them too, so the largely ignore him now. Perhaps in the hope that Americans will rid themselves from the embarrassment they’ve created for themselves soon, and rid the world from this madman before its too late.

  10. Thanks, hugs, and amen to all! 19
