What-eF-er is he on?????????????

Having just heard Donald Trump on TV after yesterday’s attack on Parson’s Green tube station, I feel compelled to comment.
When he was voted into power, I honestly thought his business mind approach could be a good thing to wake up waning ‘sameold sameold’ politics.
Yesterday I was in hysterics as his ‘speech’ on the White House lawn took second place to a young lad having a problem mowing said lawn in a straight line, seen as the camera panned back, though in later reports it was cut from transmission.

I am so sorry to my American blogging family, but I cannot take this guy seriously **.
He is forever playing to an audience like some thirty third rate actor.
His diction is annoying, trite and insincere, and as to his sucking up to our ‘Wonderful Woman’ PM (another mouthpiece going through the motions with a nodding head out of control) ?
Please pass the bucket.
Terror is on our streets, and as always, the Experts are spurting their garbage analysis way too late. They have CCTV footage, they have the remnants of the device, a bucket and carrier bag probably oozing with DNA.
This type of event brings it home that life is not a TV Soap Opera, with the bad guys being apprehended in a matter of hours.
Of course, I appreciate that Joe Public will never be privvy to what is going on behind the scenes, but I believe that it is way past time that the public should be able to SEE that something is being done, not hear an ineffective inefficient script. **

Hubby was in security. He’d already summarised what had happened, how and what went wrong before anything was announced, as did probably several hundred other retired guards and officers. All that experience and visual expertise lost.
It is frightening that the internet and TV programmes make it so easy for a device such as this one to be put together, however clumsily. Why aren’t the authorities doing something to curb that?

Breaking news:
An 18 year old male has been arrested in connection with yesterday’s bombing.

“Seriously” is the wrong terminology as IMO, he’s dangerous. It comes across that he is merely playing an egotistical part, not actually doing the job he was elected to do.
Worrying times for us all, especially with his bluff being called elsewhere.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. I wonder obsessively about Trump all the time, and it doesn’t help me sleep !

    Don’t get me started on Donald Trump who, in New York where he is from, was never even taken seriously as a businessman. You’re so right — why aren’t all the cyber police and intelligence geniuses doing something about shutting down the how-to kits for wannabe terrorists online? Not to mention all the propaganda spread online in order to recruit more of them?

    I don’t believe that Donald Trump has an effective business mind. It is my understanding that he has a history of commercial failures behind him and his affluence is all inheritance. He does however have the skill to influence many Americans with meaningless rhetoric.

    • You’re right there Colin. I’d only ever seen him on his TV shows, and he’s coming across as an extension of that. Generally thinking, I thought a ‘business’ approach could turn things around, even those that failed could be turned to a positive learning exercise. Ho hum. Just goes to show how naive my concept is of business! Think I’ll stick to my housekeeping budget and spreadsheets!

  4. You won’t get an argument from most of us across the pond. We just hang our heads.

  5. Mr. Trump is a fraud. His wealth has been built on the backs of people he has cheated and conned. Anyone thinking a novice would be a good president for the US is naive to be polite. He continues to slap our closest ally (the UK) in the face. Hoping his tenure is short lived.

    When I was in college, I was taught that when one composes non-fiction, they are sharing information and facts; emotion was for fiction. Since I graduated, journalism rules seem to have changed because year by year, I see more emotion in ‘the news’. I also see more biases reported as fact. I’m not sure why most main stream media portrays President Trump in as negative a way as possible, but I suspect they are controlled by someone with an agenda. If you think it would be impossible to do this because of the hundreds of stations, etc., realize that the vast majority are owned by a mere 6 companies. I wrote a short blog about this last year – https://foguth.wordpress.com/2016/10/12/how-hillary-manipulates-the-media/ as I was trying to understand why so much of what I was seeing didn’t translate into the news reports. For instance, during the primaries both Clinton and Trump had rallies in my vicinity. Hillary held her’s in a quaint 200 seat theater and while the news reported that ‘people were standing in line’, an acquaintance who attended because her child was singing said the theater wasn’t full…. Trump held his rally in an airport hangar and another friend planned to take her son to it (extra credit in civics) – they along with about 12-thousand others couldn’t get in because it was packed. https://foguth.wordpress.com/2016/11/05/rallies-visual-truth/ for my blog on that.

    Bottom line, Trump has done a lot of good here, in the US, but you won’t hear about it on the news.

    • Interesting to hear the other side. I remember reading about the rallies and variance in numbers, and was glad I wasn’t an American citizen having to make a choice.

      • foguth says:

        I believe that Trump’s victory had its roots in a similar place to your own BREXIT and I think that both votes reflect the average citizen’s rejection of Globalism. I will add that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.
        Now, both our countries are suffering from attacks, which I suspect were orchestrated by those who expected to achieve power and profit once globalism was enacted…. and no, I don’t think they are personally setting bombs or rioting, but I do think they are whispering the ideas and probably even funding the atrocities.
        I’m an independent who would have liked a ‘none of the above’ on the ballot, but I’ve been pleasantly surprised by how sincere Trump is about fulfilling his campaign promises ( he’s managed to accomplish all the things that don’t require Congress). I’m not a fan of his personality but with our country’s failing infrastructure plus all the devastation of the past 2 hurricanes, having someone with his construction background to oversee things is an asset.

      • We would have liked a None of The Above option too.

      • foguth says:

        I’ve been saying that for years, and the choice seems to be getting worse and worse.

      • foguth says:

        Just found this link to a news cast I once saw … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uOTgNrP6FJk … it’s difficult to find ones that give facts.

  7. No apologies needed, I find it more than appalling that he is our commander in chief.
