The First Trump term.

Post by TheCatt »

Haley has a book coming out.
In "With All Due Respect," Haley said then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and then-White House chief of staff John Kelly told her that they were trying to "save the country." Haley writes that she was "shocked" by the request, made during a closed-door meeting, and thought they were only trying to put their own imprint on his policies.

"Kelly and Tillerson confided in me that when they resisted the president, they weren't being insubordinate, they were trying to save the country," Haley wrote. "It was their decisions, not the president's, that were in the best interests of America, they said. The president didn't know what he was doing. ... Tillerson went on to tell me the reason he resisted the president's decisions was because, if he didn't, people would die."
He's a disaster, were you really shocked? Really?

Well... I don't know the people making those statements. They could be idiots.

No. Although, I'd argue Obama had fewer qualifications to be president. However, he had the personality for it.

And, if we're being really honest, despite Trump being a dumbfuck, aren't these guys committing treason? They're trying to subvert how the U.S. government works.

I don't know if I'd go so far as to call it treason, but they all seem to be missing the fact that the President sets foreign policy. If you're not there to advance his policy, then you're not doing anyone any favors. This is the problem I'm having with a lot of the testimony from people in the state department concerning the Ukraine stuff. They were complaining that Trump was working against state department objectives. I'm like... um... if you're working against Trump's policies, YOU'RE the one that's working against state department objectives.

Watching some of these hearings, it's weird to hear about how super duper important it was to arm the Ukraine from career state department hacks that were working there under Obama when we weren't giving them jack shit yet they weren't testifying against that administration before congress.

Almost as if this is a poorly scripted clown show.

“Conspiracy theory”

Doesn’t it have to be hard to believe or something the majority of people don’t already think to be a conspiracy theory?

Trade war almost over?

The biggest takeaway for me:
Agreements on agriculture, financial services, and currency were nearly completed, and there had been “excellent progress” on intellectual property theft issues, Mr. Kudlow said, although some additional work remained on that topic.

They couldn't come up with a better lie than "phase 1 of a routine exam"?
