TRUMP THREW A GRENADE AT CHINA
Trumps gigantic blunders BEFORE he gets into office.
By Patricia Moloney Dugas
As an anti-bombast reporter, my prayers were answered when Trump threw a bomb at China by accepting a phone call from the president of Taiwan! Pure fodder for any reporter waiting for this narcissistic bombast to provide every reason of proof why America failed to heed the obvious warnings, that this man is in no way qualified to be president of the United States of America and leader of the Free World. Not only not qualified but possibly even dangerous to the stability of that very same Free World.
In 48 hours, this clumsy impostor created three, not one or two, but three major international blunders — internationally televised and watched worldwide, as Trump ingratiated himself with known hostile anti-American leaders.
Blunder No. 2, “Donald Trump’s Phone Conversation With the Leader of Pakistan Was Reckless” and Bizarre. “The U.S. President-elect’s ill-considered words could have serious regional and global consequences” reported by Reuters.
Blunder No. 3, Trump invited the anti-American, crude, vulgar president of the Philippines to his White House. Reuters
Ah, but Mega-Blunder No. 1! A reporter’s dream catastrophe to write about. Trump started his foreign policy efforts by throwing a live grenade at the second most powerful nation on earth, China! It is reported he has refused any Intelligent Briefings from the existing administration, so, on his own, he accepts a call from the president of Taiwan. Accepting the call, a deliberate affront to mainland China, the bungler that he is, has set up a firestorm of international relations – again – all over the globe!
Was this a 4th grade blunder, executed out of ignorance, an immature naiveté, or indeed, was he intending to stomp his foot and start WWIII? Look world, Trump is here! Curiously, he has selected a number of military generals for his cabinet, so even though he claims to be “smarter that all the generals,” they can help him wage war and punch out the lights of China to start with! If you are going to show the world how strong you are, just start at the top – China! Is Trump a fool – or does this way-out-of-bounds compulsive really believe he is showing the world the new way of doing ‘business’ with a Trump. (Will the outcome be settled on the Sunday Morning Talk shows? Shall we let the biased media decide the fate of America – again?)
No matter what his motivation was, this is an all-points disaster. Ignorance or ego-enhancing gullibility will not suffice to appease all the world nations that are watching his every move; his use of self-absorbed, reactionary Tweets; his gold-encrusted Trump Tower private broadcasts; or his embarrassingly complicit media spokespersons spinning his fables?
There is no way America can win this one. Unless… we gather up our honor and integrity and have him removed before he does serious harm to all we cherish as American.
This reporter is in no way “pleased as punch” that all the published protestations on my website, TheSocietalTamperer.com, and my Twitter account; @PatriciaMDugas have proven on-target, but that my efforts to protect America from itself are being validated – every day.
