"You have to go to other people's funerals if you expect them to come to yours." -- Yogi Berra
In order to save our country, we have to make it easy for Trumpsters to announce that we have all been misled and somehow we have to undo Trump while we can.
We gave the wrong person the world stage. And the world knows it. Our choices were lousy but it's still no excuse. Some people in the South still don't know it yet though. They will.
The King of Not Paying What He Owes, lectures NATO about past due money. They had to be amused. Trump has no idea who he is talking to...countries that let us put soldiers on their land, who want to align with Democracies....but could go the other way and let Russian soldiers replace ours. They are not without choices.
Funeral. Impressive attendance. Our largest indoor facility overfilled today. I plan to have mine in a phone booth which should be adequate even though I'll have live band.
College Professor Objects To Exclusion of Whites From Campus For “Day of Absence” . . . Students Denounce Him As Racist and Call For His Terminationby jonathanturley

The president promised to "never forsake" allies but lectured NATO members on the need to pay what he said was their fair share of the alliance costs.
President Donald Trump is being widely quoted by European allies as making a rather disturbing statements about Germany to EU Commissioner Jean-Claude Juncker and European Council president Donald Tusk. German news magazine Der Spiegel is quoting multiple sources that Trump went off on Germany over the trade surplus and said that "The Germans are evil, very evil." If true, it would not exactly be a diplomatic or even comprehensible approach. Trump also reportedly said that he would end the German car sales in the United States behind the surplus. Der Spiegel is a widely respected publication. However, this would be as big a story if the statement was not made. The article describes almost open hostility and shock toward Trump. If the statement was not made (and Juncker has not denied it), it would be evidence of an open effort by top European diplomats to portray Trump as unhinged and unstable. The White House, of course, should be able to confirm or deny the story. I truly hope that this is a fake news story because the alternative would be unnerving.

Hounding struggling people, sometimes baselessly, is the sort of business experience Team Trump brought to Washington.
