The Donald Rants & Ryan Cheers

By Jeff Simpson

The Donald gave a speech to the UN recently and in it, where speaking off the cuff, he said:

“The United States has great strength and patience,” Trump said. “But if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea.”

Which prompted the reaction above from General John Kelly, current White House Chief of Staff.   Apparently a lifelong public servant and military general, was not a big fan of threatening nuclear war, and the death of 25,000,000 people in front of the rest of the world. How very ProLife of him!
Not satisfied embarrassing himself and us there, he kept going.  In his best one liner, worthy of a 4th grade, he called North Korea's leader Kim Jung Un - 

“Rocket Man on a suicide mission”

This is the kind of stuff that would not even make it off the cutting room floor of a Tony Scott movie, way to unbelievable even for him.   

Yet here we are, living this current nightmare of a petulant child, reality TV "star" playing the role of leader of the free world and Commander in Chief of our Armed Forces.

Support the Troops as a rallying cry is so 10 years ago! 

It makes one long for the times when he would just sit and brag about his election victory and fake news....o wait he brought that up to the UN also: 

TRUMP: Fortunately, the United States has done very well since election day last November 8th. The stock market is at an all-time high, a record. Unemployment is at its lowest level in 16 years, 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.
Typically, his line is pure BS, but its safe BS for millions of human beings around the globe and here in the US.   

Our friends in Sweden, agreed with General Kelly, and were not amused:

—"This was a bombastic, nationalist speech. It must have been decades since one last heard a speech like that in the U.N. General Assembly. ... This was a speech at the wrong time to the wrong audience." Margot Wallstrom, foreign minister of Sweden.
But wait there is more:

One person, LOVED the speech: 

Great message from at the UN. American leadership is needed now more than ever. We must stand by our allies and confront our enemies.

As Charles Pierce once pointed out, BIGGEST.FAKE.EVER! 

The "principled, policy guru"(his words not mine) has now become nothing more than a gopher for The Donald to be used and abused on a daily basis for Trumps amusement.   

A complete and utter embarrassment to Janesville and Wisconsin.

Regardless, If you like Randy Bryce or Cathy Myers, Paul Ryan must not be elected ever again!  

Our Country, our democracy and our children depend on it!   


  1. Am I the only one reminded by this of another asshole, ca. 1960? And a Russian, more's the irony.
