News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Fri. Sept. 22, 2017: The only good explanation I could possibly offer for President Trump’s speech to the United Nations on Wednesday is that he was abducted by aliens. NO not those aliens, but aliens from Outer Space, who seized his brain.
Barring any evidence of an alien abduction on CNN, Fox News or any place else, the ONLY other conclusion is that there is something very, very WRONG with Donald Trump and everyone should be very concerned.
MAD man on the loose in The White House – run for cover!
In calling Trump a lunatic I want to be very specific here in this episode so I will go to the source – the exact text of his UN speech. What we will find here is hypocrisy so brazen that Trump’s sanity is in question. For any President to be making major decisions for our nation and all of us based on such a convoluted mindless view of reality is SCARY in the extreme.
So let’s dig into Trump’s UN speech. But first, let me be clear, none of my analysis has to do with that other MAD Man – Kim of North Korea. That may be the only place President Trump is acting sanely in confronting him; maybe because he has clarity when he is facing another MAD man.
The problem here is that Trump’s massive hypocrisy throughout his speech undermines the credibility of his confrontation with North Korea. You’ll see.
Finally to the text of the speech …
SORRY one more aside first. Since the subject here is speeches let me not forget another (former) President’s speech making. While Trump has been making speeches for “free,” former President Obama continues to rake in the Big Bucks making speeches to the same kind of major corporations Obama supposedly was protecting us from as President.
Well Barack Obama is getting about $400,000 a speech plus expenses of course from Northern Trust Corp., Carlyle Group, Cantor Fitzgerald, etc, etc. they sure aren’t paying him all that Dough for “nothing.” They are proving just how grateful they were for the job he did for them as President !
Sorry, sorry, sorry; yes let’s get to President Trump’s speech finally ..
“As millions of our citizens continue to suffer the effects of the devastating hurricanes that have struck our country, I want to begin by expressing my appreciation to every leader in this room who has offered assistance and aid. The American people are strong and resilient, and they will emerge from these hardships more determined than ever before.”
Not a word from Trump about the worst devastation of all that has taken place in the islands of the Caribbean. Who cares about them? NOT Trump !
Moving on …
“To put it simply, we meet at a time of both of immense promise and great peril. It is entirely up to us whether we lift the world to new heights, or let it fall into a valley of disrepair.”
And guess what? President Trump is going to add to the misery!
“We have it in our power, should we so choose, to lift millions from poverty, to help our citizens realize their dreams, and to ensure that new generations of children are raised free from violence, hatred, and fear.”
And Trump is going to do nothing to make things better for them.
“To overcome the perils of the present and to achieve the promise of the future, we must begin with the wisdom of the past. Our success depends on a coalition of strong and independent nations that embrace their sovereignty to promote security, prosperity, and peace for themselves and for the world.”
Is that why President Trump is a very big supporter of some of the most oppressive regimes on Earth? For example the Saudi “family.”
And then this from Trump …
“But we do expect all nations to uphold these two core sovereign duties: to respect the interests of their own people and the rights of every other sovereign nation. This is the beautiful vision of this institution, and this is foundation for cooperation and success.”
WHAT? …. Is this Trump’s idea of comedy or sarcasm on his part.
Again …. “We do expect all nations to uphold these two core sovereign duties: to respect the interests of their own people and the rights of every other sovereign nation.”
Sure you do Donald.
And then more ..
“Strong, sovereign nations let their people take ownership of the future and control their own destiny. And strong, sovereign nations allow individuals to flourish in the fullness of the life intended by God.”
Does that include the slaughter of the Rohingya by Myanmar that President Trump has nothing to say about let lone do anything about among many other examples around the Globe Trump is ignoring?
Trump give us more of your UN bluster …
“In America, we do not seek to impose our way of life on anyone, but rather to let it shine as an example for everyone to watch. This week gives our country a special reason to take pride in that example. We are celebrating the 230th anniversary of our beloved Constitution — the oldest constitution still in use in the world today.”
That is precious coming from Donald Trump.
More, more Donald ..
The greatest in the United States Constitution is its first three beautiful words. They are: “We the people.” WE THE PEOPLE?????? Really.
“As President of the United States, I will always put America first, just like you, as the leaders of your countries will always, and should always, put your countries first.”
This is one of the very few weak applause lines Trump got. And guaranteed it was cynical applause based on how Trump thinks of other nations.
I have to cut this short the speech goes on and on and on so let me get right to the RED meat that best displays how whacked out Trump is ..
Here is what Trump says to the UN about North Korea ….
“It is time for North Korea to realize that the denuclearization is its only acceptable future. The United Nations Security Council recently held two unanimous 15-0 votes adopting hard-hitting resolutions against North Korea, and I want to thank China and Russia for joining the vote to impose sanctions, along with all of the other members of the Security Council. Thank you to all involved.”
So far so good on North Korea but then ABSURDITY ……
“We face this decision not only in North Korea. It is far past time for the nations of the world to confront 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.”
Who might that nation be President Trump????
“The Iranian government masks a corrupt dictatorship behind the false guise of a democracy. It has turned a wealthy country with a rich history and culture into an economically depleted rogue state whose chief exports are violence, bloodshed, and chaos. The longest-suffering victims of Iran’s leaders are, in fact, its own people.”
REALLY? …. Trump Iran is just like North Korea????
Are you INSANE Trump? Sure looks that way as he proves here.
“The Iran Deal was one of the worst and most one-sided transactions the United States has ever entered into. Frankly, that deal is an embarrassment to the United States, and I don’t think you’ve heard the last of it — believe me.” Sorry Trump No one believes you except other whackos.
More nonsense …
“Oppressive regimes cannot endure forever, and the day will come when the Iranian people will face a choice. Will they continue down the path of poverty, bloodshed, and terror? Or will the Iranian people return to the nation’s proud roots as a center of civilization, culture, and wealth where their people can be happy and prosperous once again ?”
So here is the REAL story …
Iran has given up its nuclear program and is abiding by ALL the requirements of their agreement with the United States and the rest of the world and so what does Trump do in his speech? SAVAGE them and compare Iran with North Korea.
And Trump’s #1 goal as President is to find some excuse to END the nuclear agreement with Iran and by doing so telling MAD Man Kim he would have to be CRAZY to make an agreement with Trump to END their nuclear program because Trump will then turn around and SCREW North Korea.
Is Donald Trump really President of the United States? How can that possibly be? Because Hillary Clinton was his opponent! NO other reason.
I have to end this episode I can’t take any more of Trump’s INSANITY.
Except just one more clip from the speech.
What does Crazy Man Trump do after trashing Iran?
Trump PRAISES one of the most corrupt and repressive and vicious regimes on Earth – the Saudi family goons …
“In Saudi Arabia early last year, I was greatly honored to address the leaders of more than 50 Arab and Muslim nations. We agreed that all responsible nations must work together to confront terrorists and the Islamist extremism that inspires them.”
Here is the headline from The Financial Times this week ..
“SAUDI SECURITY FORCES CLAMP DOWN IN DISSENT”
I can’t take any more. Let me out of here away from the Crazy Man.
Everyone run for your life before President Trump grabs you.
