Donald Trump says he does not need preparation to deal with North Korea: “It’s about attitude.”

” I don’t need no stinking preparation.”

During a White House pool spray with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Thursday, President Trump said he doesn’t think he has a lot of preparation to do ahead of a summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un in which the two leaders will discuss North Korea’s nuclear weapons program.

“I think I’m very well prepared. I don’t think I have to prepare very much. It’s about attitude,” Trump said. “It’s about willingness to get things done, but I think I’ve been preparing for the summit for a long time, as has the other side. I think they’ve been preparing for a long time also. So, this isn’t a question of preparation, it’s a question of whether or not people want it to happen, and we’ll know that very quickly.”

Yes, why would anybody prepare for one of potentially the most consequential summits in recent history? 

You know typically you do not get quite this much advanced warning before a train wreck occurs. 

The problem, of course, is that Donald Trump has been winging it his entire life, and then just declaring bankruptcy when the shit hits the fan.

The problem with his current job is that the shit in a case like this is likely the lives of American military members, and the fan they are about to hit would be bombs, bullets, and missiles fired from the North Koreans. 

His mistakes have too much at stake to simply be made on the fly, or when he is sitting on the toilet typing away on Twitter. 

Can’t we just impeach him and get it over with?

    I am not at all sure that there is any amount of preparation that would make Donald Trump competent in his job.

    …Put simply, Lord Donny Trump thinks he was elected to be the “Boss of America.” That is how the job was presented to him, more than likely, although it is possible he’s just trying to refashion the job so that he can do what he’s comfortable with. He’s done essentially whatever he’s wanted his entire life and the idea of working for someone else has to be abhorrent on some level. So, he’s doing what he’s always done. He makes decisions and he expects everyone else to just do what he says. That is why he gets so obnoxious when he doesn’t get his way. He’s always told everyone what to do and expected them to do whatever he says, with no questions asked.

    …He’s not afraid of going to jail. Trump, like most filthy rich people, don’t worry about going to jail because they generally don’t go to jail. I mean, for Chrissakes, folks; he told you that during the campaign, when he declared he could shoot someone on Fifth Avenue and not pay a price. His “lawyer,” Rudy Giuliani, said roughly the same thing last week, when he declared that Trump could “shoot Comey” and wouldn’t have to pay for it. No, Donald Trump is not afraid of going to jail because he thinks he can buy his way out of it. And why wouldn’t he? He has done things that would get you or I thrown in jail all through his public life. He has been a crook for many years, and he has run his company in much the same way crime families run their businesses. If he hasn’t gone to jail yet, he’s not likely to ever go to jail.

    In other words, I know this will make some of you sad, but you will likely never see Donald J. Trump’s orangutan-colored ass frog-marched to jail. It just doesn’t happen to people with billions of dollars or white people who are considered “pillars of society.”

      Hallelujah, someone finally said it! And why do you think the GOP are more than willing to let him get away with it? It’s lucrative to ALL of them: Citizens United, people, SCOTUS approved. Follow the money. Why do you think they’re laughing at Mueller? At least he’s trying, and Comey can pound sand for his role.

      When Trump said that “we” are looking into how China president Xi remains so for life, he was not kidding.

      The thing is he doesn’t have billions of dollars. He is mortgaged to the hilt on all of his properties, his businesses are bleeding cash in many instances, and NO ONE wants his name on their buildings anymore (a major course of income). He owes the Russians millions of dollars and has NO way to repay them other than causing the US to sink into obscurity, which he is doing very well at. He was assisted into the office of POTUS in order to pay back what he owes his masters.

    Have we seen whether or not he agreed to OUR paying for Jung Un’s $6000/night room for this summit?
    Eff YOU, Preparation H.

    Alfred E. Neuman. “What, ME worry?”
    Besides, he’s got Dennis Rodman to do the heavy lifting. Eye roll.

    Trump is like a middle school student who doesn’t think he has to study for the test the following day. What he’ll never understand is that such fake bravado doesn’t work. Has never worked and will never work.

    Yea right Mr. Bankruptcy is going to go in and try to bully the North Koreans, unfortunately for him they are already onto his lame game.

    9. “I’ve been preparing all my life.”
    1. “Russia should be at this meeting … They should let Russia come back in.”
    3. “Yes, I do have an absolute right to pardon myself, but I’ll never have to do it.”
    5. “Dennis Rodman was a great rebounder.” Trump suggested the former NBA player was a “genius” who could contribute something valuable to the North Korea summit because he had been good at grabbing rebounds despite being only 6’7 tall.
    6. “European Union treats us very unfairly, Canada, very unfairly, Mexico, very unfairly.”
    10. “Just ask Hillary.”
    14. “That’s a Democrat bill that we’re enforcing.” ‘approved to separate migrant children from their parents at the border, and insisted he “hated” the policy. He promised to end the policy if Democrats would agree to fund his border wall.’
    7. “She wanted to go, she can’t fly for one month.” ‘twice JABBed his finger toward the White House to show reporters where she presently was located.’

      2. “I’m thinking about Muhammad Ali.” The president milked the moment for maximum drama before hinting he would pardon the late heavyweight champion — whose conviction for evading the draft was overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court, and who was granted blanket amnesty by President Jimmy Carter.”

      ” “The U.S. Supreme Court overturned the conviction of Muhammad Ali unanimously in 1971. There is no conviction for which a pardon is needed.””

      During an impromptu press conference earlier Friday morning, Trump told reporters he “is not going to disagree” with Giuliani. To Avenatti, that comment was basically a show of support.

      “If you look at Mr. Trump’s comments, you know, that’s not what he said,” the attorney told Ruhle. “He basically supported what Rudy Giuliani had stated in total, which is entirely inappropriate.” “If my client’s not credible and is a liar, why did they pay her $130,000?” he mused. “It makes absolutely no sense. They paid her $130,000 because they knew she was telling the truth.

      “Whenever a woman comes forward who is credible,” “they constantly resort to attacking that woman based on her looks.”
      ““Not only did she distance herself, she contradicted Giuliani,” he said, noting that the first lady’s “extraordinary” statement claimed she had never been in contact with her husband’s attorney.

      “I think that shows there’s a lot of trouble brewing between the first lady and the president,” Avenatti said. “And I think it also shows that she doesn’t necessarily believe his denials, nor should she.””

      7. “She wanted to go, she can’t fly for one month.” ‘twice JABBed his finger toward the White House to show reporters where she presently was located.” <host*age?

    elitist>”One of my regular correspondents replied that Trump may have been confused by “this,” followed by the trailer for Canadian Bacon, the 1995 John Candy movie in which an unpopular president starts a war with Canada to raise his approval numbers.”
    “Conservative readers are saying right now, “there you go again, you snooty liberals, you and your book-learnin’.””
    ” it has become far, far worse to make fun of someone for not knowing some basic historical fact than it is to not know the fact. And that is absurd.” “A civilization that has concluded that the latter is worse is a civilization that is valuing attitude and posture over fact, and that is precisely the corkscrewed value system gave us a cretin like Trump in the first place.” “a long attack on truth set in motion four decades ago that persuaded millions of Americans that knowledge is slavery and ignorance is indeed bliss.”
