Donald J(ackass) tRump may be physically large, but he is a small man.

In fit of rage, Trump cancels Pelosi trip to Afghanistan, endangering her and national security

"Donald Trump continues to be just the pettiest little stub of a man you could possibly imagine, because of course he is. His new public letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, in response to Pelosi suggesting that his State of the Union speech be delayed for security reasons until the government shutdown is over, is a work of tantrumming art. (Please note it took him a full day to come up with this.)

"Dear Madam Speaker:

Due to the Shutdown, I am sorry to inform you that your trip to Brussels, Egypt and Afghanistan has been postponed. We will reschedule this seven-day excursion when the Shutdown is over. In light of the 800,000 great American workers not receiving pay, I am sure you would agree that during this period, it would be better if you were in Washington negotiating with me and joining the Strong Border Security movement to end the Shutdown. Obviously, if you would like to make your journey by flying commercial, that would certainly be your prerogative.

I look forward to seeing you soon and even more forward to watching our open and dangerous Southern Border finally receive the attention, funding, and security it so desperately deserves!"

This is a Real Thing, signed by either Donald Trump or an extremely overcaffeinated small bird and sent out by Sarah No-Kidding Sanders, and is quite obviously meant as retaliation for Pelosi delaying what Donald Trump holds most precious and dear in life: appearing on television.

Aside from the glorious tantrum-having, there may be one wee problem, however! Pelosi’s trip had not been announced, for security concerns. Trump exposed it.

"The details of Pelosi's planned travel to Brussels, Egypt and Afghanistan -- particularly those destinations -- had not been previously announced. Earlier today her aides asked news organizations not to report that the trip would take place, citing national security.

The man can’t even burp without endangering national security. Wow."

I've been following this whole debacle since the last days of the campaign. But it's really getting too embarrassing now. What kind of a system gives one man the right to close down an entire Government? Especially a country which keeps invading other countries to spread this form of government!!

And what all this has shown us is that The Orange One isn't the only small man - all the dreadful sychopants who support his immorality, his bigotry, his narcissism simply for the sake of money are small, selfish little men too. There's something terribly wrong with a country which is ruled solely by the love of money.

Watching coverage of small, spitting, over-excited little men yelling and shreiking utter schoolboy nonsense, whose idea of discussion is the old Nursery-school line "I know you are, but what am I?" is very squirm-making.

Watching a mob of ignorant, badly-educated semi-mobsters behave like rival gangs of kids down at the Mall on a Saturday afternoon would be pitiful if it weren't so tragic: people working for no money, children stolen from their parents, sanctioned bigotry, pollution given the go-ahead, lack of medical care, lack of freedom of choice for women, and kow-towing to anyone who has more money than one does oneself: this is the "Great" America people voted in a moron for?

Truly embarrassing.

Nancy Pelosi's knowledge is not sufficient to participate in any talks in Afghanistan, Brussels or Egypt.
Her experience she gained through so many years of paid job does not work well with her flawed opinions.
The opinions which are actually speculations based on her experience and not on knowledge derived from methodical scientific analysis of facts.

Not only did Trump cancel the airplane and use it for Melania's vacation to Mar-a-Lago, (I do know they have more than one plane lol) but when Pelosi booked commercially, he outed those plans and endangered the whole group plus outed where the troops were. BTW - going to visit the troops, which took him two years to accomplish, is not "an excursion". She was going her first few days as Speaker. Shows who cares more about the military and veterans.

He who gives ally intelligence to the Russians right in the Oval Office, he who said he'd never tell the enemy his plans ahead of time and then did exactly that in Syria and Afghanistan, that man can't keep his little fish mouth shut. He was never concerned about a few deleted emails when he spews American military plans all over the world, announces policy everyday many times on Twitter, his daughter uses unsecured email, and he uses unsecured phones himself. Strange that he made sure that there are no records of what was said, done, and promised during all of his meetings with Putin.

I loved Nancy's answer when asked if she thought the cancellation was in retaliation for her asking him to postpone the State of Union address till govt was re-opened. She answered that she hoped not. She didn't think Trump would be that petty. Did they?

Pelosi has the power to invite Trump to Congress so she was polite by just asking him to postpone when she could have ordered it. She is the highest ranking female in US govt and has been there since 1987. I believe she would become president if Trump and Pence were removed. And she knows far more about US government and foreign affairs than 90% of those in the WH right now.

Nancy Pelosi will win:

Vladimir Putin oversees a small economy in comparison to other countries. But he is laughing today as Populist movements he helped spearhead are taking over democratic countries because of fear of others.

Canada's allies, the US and the UK have deadlocked governments. France and Germany's leaders are losing power, and in two out of three town hall meetings recently, our PM Trudeau had to assure people that Canada would never allow Sharia law. They can't all even be happy that a Saudi girl's life was spared without using it somehow to attack and criticize Trudeau.

It is all about fear being spread by the Conservatives. Fear of others coming and taking what they think is rightfully theirs because they were there first.

This is all about a wall. A wall that won't stop overstays or smuggling at ports. Pelosi and Dems are FOR border security that is more cost efficient, using technology and other better proven methods.

So when a Mexican airline came up with this ad it was brilliant.
