The End of the Republic: Trump Makes DEVASTATING Mistake. Again.

I warned all of you a year ago. February 14, 2016, I TOLD you all Trump was ineligible to be the President of the United States. You didn’t listen to me. This is on you, because he is now the President and STILL making the same mistakes.

He is ordering steaks well done. Not only that, but he eats them with ketchup.

There is a detailed report of his recent dinner at BLT Steakhouse in Washington, and Benny Johnson of IJR puts in a full quote from an anonymous waiter.

The President ordered a well-done steak. An aged New York strip. He ate it with catsup as he always does. The sides and appetizers on the table were shared. Three jumbo shrimp cocktails were delivered before the meal. At one point, the President looked at his watch and remarked ”They are filming ‘Saturday Night Live’ right now. Can’t wait to see what they are gonna do to me this week.“ It was hard to serve him because he is so funny and relaxed, it makes you laugh.

This is, as you can imagine, the end of the Republic as we know it.

Both Jezebel and AV Club, distinguished journals of political commentary, took Trump to task over the revelation. Vanity Fair also wrote a piece on it. Everyone realizes, as I do, that Donald Trump is a monster who should not hold the highest office in the land.

As usual, Trump supporters came out in defense with mind-boggling statements.

Let us be absolutely clear here. If you order anything above medium, you are a monster who does not understand how to cook, treat, and eat steaks. States should pass laws requiring these monsters to be identifiable on their driver’s licenses. Congress should ban them from even buying steaks.

The Republican has never been in greater trouble. If you disagree with this post, identify yourselves in the comments and I will ask the moderators to deal with you accordingly. This cannot stand.

Even worse, ketchup. KETCHUP, people. This isn’t just wrong, it’s un-American. This is borderline Communism. Vladimir Putin probably eats his steaks with ketchup. Because it’s red. Like Communism.

What’s really bad here is that Donald Trump knows the Media will look for any reason to oppose him, and he is readily giving them ammo to do so. The Media will of course latch on to this story and use it as further proof that the man is unhinged and unworthy of the office.

And they would be right. This is a major issue, and I hope Sean Spicer comes out tomorrow and clarifies that this never happened, that the waiter who leaked this info has been found and fired and possibly sent to Guantanamo, and that Trump will speak to Congress tomorrow and eat a medium-rare steak in front of everyone assembled just to prove he is not a monster.

The Republic must stand.

Attaboy: Trump Defends Need For Increased Defense Spending (And I Agree)

President Trump hosted a number of governors at the White House on Monday, and spoke of the need to “win wars, again” as part of his call to increase defense spending.

“We have to start winning wars again,” Trump said in the State Dining Room of the White House. “I have to say, when I was young, in high school, and college, everybody used to say we never lost a war. We never lost a war. You remember. Some you were right there with me, and you remember? We never lost a war. America never lost.”

“And, now, we never win a war,” Trump said. “We never win. And we don’t fight to win.”

If you can peel through the glitch and jerk of Trumpspeak, there may be a kernel for discussion.

My first thought (and please, you emotional Nancys, don’t tell me I’m being unfair) is that a world leader shouldn’t be openly talking about winning wars, as if war was a goal. War should never be the goal, so maybe don’t signal that America is prowling the world, looking to start one, just to prove we can win.

That being said (and this is one of those promised “attaboy” moments), Trump’s pledge to increase defense spending is one I can actually see a legitimate need for.

During the Obama administration, the president set about to gut our military. Never in my lifetime can I remember an administration that was more disrespectful of our military. His deep cuts to the defense budget were a threat to our national security.

I want to see the military have what they need, in order to defend our nation, in the event of war.

“This budget will be a public safety and national security budget … and will include a historic increase in defense spending to rebuild the depleted military of the United States of America,” Trump said.

He added: “The Middle East is far worse than it was 16, 17 years ago. It’s not even a contest. So we have spent $6 trillion. We have a hornet’s nest. It’s a mess, like you’ve never seen before. We’re nowhere.”

The way Trump speaks is barely coherent, and that will haunt him for whatever length of time he’s in office, but my best translation is: The Middle East is in turmoil. They hate us. We need to be prepared, in the event things go further south than they already are.

I agree.
