Should we have a caption contest???


Easy:



One Ring for the Dark Lord on his dark throne.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.
If Trump where half as smart as he thinks he is, he'd be twice as smart as he really is.

Apparently Obama gave a speech on needing to curb global warming, while he burned more carbon in a day than the average American does in a year! Apparently he flew in on a private jet escorted by 7 other jets, took a multivehicle motorcade, etc.... He is now the second most hypocritical person in the news.... only 'trumped' by you know who....

A year? More like a lifetime. Algore does the same. Ditto Prince Charles.

Just one more reason I do not believe in GW as an issue. Though I expect the followers to justify the hypocritical behavior in their own mind. They care so much, it will help the cause in the end, other usual.......

Years ago Hannity had ongoing on air
arguments with the loon Robert Kennedy
Jr. He was a big GW guy who took private
jets everywhere. His argument was, they're
going there anyway. he just hitches a ride.

Hannity's side was, you don't get rid of a
problem by encouraging the use of it. Get
rid of private jets should be Kenndey's
cause. He still flies on them, of course.
If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.

You could make a long list of examples like this.

I pick on Prince Charles because he doesn't need the communications gear that the POTUS needs. He doesn't even have his own jet. Yet he still rents a Dassault Falcon Jet to fly the 325 miles from Heathrow, London (LHR) to Belfast Intl Arpt (BFS). Why couldn't he rent a turboprop?

I don't expect him to fly Ryan Air.

It is all empty acts. Like when Arnold was elected GOCA. He had 2 or 3 Hummers, IIRC one delivered special to him as one of first made. He gets elected so he sells them to show he is "green." But the things are still on the road! A guy worth millions and cares about GW would crack the engine blocks and crush them. GW is just hot air.

Trump 'exhausted' three days into first trip abroad as president: Reports

Sounds to me like he's lacking stamina. It's almost like Donald is determined to make his hardcore supporters eat crow for everything they criticized Hillary for during the campaign....

A US President is expected to go to at least six Summit meetings unless he is dying
G7, G-20, NATO, Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC), East Asia Summit (EAS), and Summit of the Americas

Some are combined to be nearby in time and distance. The six summits are combined into four trips this year.
NATO meeting in Brussels is followed by G7 in Sicily (1062 miles)
APEC meeting in Vietnam is followed closely by EAS in Phillipines. (1096 miles)

Trump trips planned for summit meeting (except Britain which is a state visit)
A) Current trip NATO and G7, Israel and Saudi Arabia and Papal audience

B) Germany Hamburg July 78 2017 G20 Hamburg summit

C) United Kingdom London, Aberdeenshire October 58 State visit to meet with Queen Elizabeth II.

D) Vietnam Đà Nẵng November 1112 APEC Vietnam 2017
Philippines Manila November 1314 12th East Asia Summit

E) Lima Peru March 2325, 2018 Summit of Americas

Two other summit meetings which may be obsolete are Nuclear Security Summit (4 times: a world summit, aimed at preventing nuclear terrorism around the globe) and North American Leaders Summit (8 times: Canada, Mexico, USA)

Every president since Eisenhower has had an audience with the pope.
Every president since Eisenhower (except LBJ) has met with the British Queen
Every president since Nixon (except Ford and Reagan) has been to Saudi Arabia
Six presidents (Nixon, Carter, Clinton, GW Bush, Obama, Trump) have been to Israel

So far Trump seems to not have any interest in copying his predecessors Clinton, Bush, and Obama who each went on 46-54 international visits to many countries over their 8 years. It looks like he won't deviate beyond the summit meetings.

You get exhausted when you do actual work on a trip. Something Hillary never did.

Obama might have gotten tired form bowing to everyone in sight, but who knows.

Too easy. I love the stench of blatant hypocrisy in the morning!

Perhaps instead of deflecting your man's immense weaknesses onto Hillary and Obama, you could own up to the fact that he's an embarrassing joke (but I won't hold my breath).
