Concerning looming debt crisis Donald Trump claims, “I won’t be here when it blows up.”

To be honest, I don’t think he really even understands it.

Since the 2016 presidential campaign, Donald Trump’s aides and advisers have tried to convince him of the importance of tackling the national debt.

Sources close to the president say he has repeatedly shrugged it off, implying that he doesn’t have to worry about the money owed to America’s creditors—currently about $21 trillion—because he won’t be around to shoulder the blame when it becomes even more untenable.

The friction came to a head in early 2017 when senior officials offered Trump charts and graphics laying out the numbers and showing a “hockey stick” spike in the national debt in the not-too-distant future. In response, Trump noted that the data suggested the debt would reach a critical mass only after his possible second term in office.

“Yeah, but I won’t be here,” the president bluntly said, according to a source who was in the room when Trump made this comment during discussions on the debt.

This may be one of the most truthful things that Trump has ever said.

Of course, the Republican party is well known for harping on the national debt, and Trump has parroted those talking points as well.

However, this is what one of his White House aides said about his attention to the debt:

“I never once heard him talk about the debt.”

It appears that there is not one long-held GOP policy position that Trump supporters are not willing to abandon in order to justify defending their president.

Donald Trump cares about nothing except Donald Trump, and that becomes more clear every day.

    America First, my lily white ass! Makes sense because he doesn’t give a shit about anything else but himself.

    In other sound bites, Tucker Carlson states immigrants want to take over US. Hey Tucker, Native American Indians said the same thing about the white man.

    And that is why this idiot’s businesses went into bankruptcy time after time. He doesn’t give a damn.

    Please Mr. Mueller, find enough evidence to put the members of the Trump mafia in orange jumpsuits.

    Is it not the same excuse they use for global warming and/or climate change in lifting environmental regulations and honing in on ANWR?

    I guess I wasn’t the only one that noticed the air got a lot more chilling when the trumps arrived. Before hand the Obamas, Clintons and Carters were all smiling and chatting with each other, I even saw Hillary turn around and chat with Mrs. Cheney. In walked the trumps and all of a sudden the whole row just sat there stone faced, even though the ceremony hadn’t started yet. guess Melanomia was told not to joke around with Barack, like she did during Barbara’s funeral.

    I also don’t understand what is this crap about how gracious trump was” to lend” the Blair house to the Bush family, he doesn’t own the house, we, the people do.

    Fox News anchor Chris Wallace ‘struck’ by how quickly Trump spoiled the mood at George HW Bush’s funeral

    Fox News anchor Chris Wallace couldn’t help but notice the chill that accompanied President Donald Trump as he took a seat among the surviving commanders in chief at George H.W. Bush’s funeral.

    The president and first lady Melania Trump sat down next to Barack and Michelle Obama, who had just been chatting and smiling with Bill and Hillary Clinton, but conversation ceased when the Trumps arrived.

    “I have to say I was struck when President Trump and Melania Trump came to the front row that it was as if a chill had descended on that front row,” Wallace said. “You had seen a lot of chatty talk between the Clintons and the Obamas, the Carters. But when Donald Trump sat down, the greeting that he was given by Barack Obama and Michelle Obama was about as cool as it could have been.”……

      I was working so missed it but clips shown on my local news showed Dubya greeting them all when his family arrived, The mint handed to Michelle (funny gesture), elicited an angry snap of dotard;s head to across the aisle n his right. Too effing bad, ass wipe, I don’t care if it’s a funeral or not, you are given the respect you deserve which is NONE although Michelle gave it her best shot having to shake your hand. Third wife and he did not sing during hymns, just glared straight ahead. As someone said on another blog, why when he sits does he look like he’s on the toilet? Because he’s a rotund retard, my guess.

      No Palin appearance amongst the important? Perhaps because in 2008 after President Obama won in a landslide, Babs said when asked about her, “let her go back to Alaska and stay there!”

    I don’t know if it was planned or trump was just late so he could make his grand entrance at the funeral. Maybe he got lost in the WH again, but it seems like everyone was glad he was late. Also he couldn’t leave his coat in the back or in his car, he had to hand it off the usher like he was the hat check boy.

      Grand entrance no doubt.
      He got the reception he deserved.

      Also the former porn model sat with her coat on the whole ceremony, pretty funny considering she spent her early career modeling no clothes. Maybe she was expecting to make an early escape.

    Bring in the Republicans and the debt skyrockets! The Dems are much more fiscally conservative.

      It is a fact, historically and economically, that the US economy does better when the Democrats are in charge. Why so many low IQ voters, and they’re are a lot of them out there, believe that Republicans are “good for the economy” is one of the basic mysteries of the universe to me. I will never forget the white woman living in a trailer park who opined that she would become rich too once Trump became president. The only people GOP politicians want to enrich are themselves and their billionaire backers.

    I still think baby bumpkins took the remarks about bush sr personally, he was scowling when one person made the comment that bush sr could take a joke about himself and enjoyed humor. Also trump supposedly graced the funeral with his presence after the bush family told him they would not speak badly about him 🙂

    Someone on MSNBC commented that Trump was late for the funeral and everyone, including the Bush family, were all waiting for the Trumps to arrive. What a pair of dicks – they deserve each other.

    Hillary actually meant to call the hardcore gop base “beyond fucking ignorant trash”

    They are unaware of how fucking stupid they are. Monsanto and Jesus have fried their fucking brains.

  12. Dmitry Peskov December 6, 2018 at 7:55 am - Reply

    “In a November 2015 email to Cohen, Felix Sater wrote: “Our boy can become president of the USA and we can engineer it. I will get all of Putin’s team to buy in on this, I will manage this process.”
    If Peskov actually was a key figure on that team, he would have seen Trump and his people, who are so motivated by money, as kindred spirits.”
    “After reports of Cohen’s statement reached the media a few days later, Peskov, who had insisted in a January 2017 NBC interview that
    “Trump never had any business here. I have never heard of any business he had here,” He confirmed to CNN that he received the {2}email$:

    “This email said that a certain Russian company together with certain individuals is pursuing the goal of building a skyscraper in the
    ‘Moscow City’ district, but things aren’t going well and they asked for help with some advice on moving this project forward. But, since, I repeat again, we do not react to such business topics—this is not our work—we left it unanswered.”

    It turns out that both Cohen and Peskov were lying—Peskov for the second time. Cohen’s plea agreement revealed that he sent two emails to Peskov’s office, on Jan. 14 and 16, 2016, asking for help in the Moscow Project, and that on Jan. 20, Peskov’s female assistant emailed him back, saying she had been trying to reach him and requesting that he call her. The two then had a 20-minute telephone conversation, and Peskov’s assistant promised help in moving the project forward.”

    “Why would Peskov have lied about the communications with Cohen earlier? Was it possibly because Peskov had been named in the explosive, uncorroborated Steele dossier as the man in charge of the Kremlin’s compromising materials on Hillary Clinton, compiled by Russia’s intelligence service? ‘Union of Soviet Societies for Friendship with Foreign Countries.’
    The dossier also reported that in August 2016 Peskov was “scared shitless” that he would lose his job as a result of fallout from revelations about Russia’s DNC hacking operation. (In fact, it was Peskov’s rival, Presidential Administration Chief Sergei Ivanov, who ended up getting sacked.) And the dossier cited a Kremlin insider as reporting in October 2016 that “Cohen now was heavily engaged in a cover up [sic] and damage limitation operation in the attempt to prevent the full details of TRUMP’s relationship with Russia being exposed.”
    “Putin trusts those guys [from the intelligence services] more than anyone else.”
    “he is a clone of Putin. He even thinks and expresses himself like Putin.” OK

    FB>”President Trump apparently shrugged off a looking debt crisis with “Yeah, but I won’t be here.” Sadly that sentiment could also apply to the global community when it comes to climate change. Today’s reports about a spike in carbon emissions is deeply disturbing. Who will champion action rather than delay?”<Dan the Man Rather
