Well this appearance by Condoleezza Rice didn't age well

Last edited Sun Jun 3, 2018, 10:00 PM - Edit history (1)

Well this appearance by Rice didn’t age well. Only a year later, H R. McMaster is now gone. When asked whether he was having trouble with Trump, Rice responded “not that I can see”. Uh huh, right. Rice paid McMaster all these accolades and Trump fired him in a very humiliating way. As was Rex Tillerson fires by Trump. So just about all the folks Rice mentioned to try to make us feel better about incompetent Trump are now gone.

Rice said all these negative things about North Korea’s leader and now Trump is saying we should negotiate with him. Nope, this video and Rice’s words haven’t aged well at all.

I wonder how Rice feels about what she said now. How would she spin it away to defend Trump.

1. Right wing "serious" and "intellectual" people are a farce

They do not deserve the attention and respect the media gives them in an effort to be fair or objective. They are either partisan shills or totally delusional.

2. She's a right wing stooge, nothing more.

No substance to her at all. But she does play the piano well and likes leather boots. That's all I remember about her.

6. Condi Rice is dishonest, but exceptionally talented at lying

Reporters never stand a chance with Condi. She has anticipated everything they can say and has carefully calculated in advance the precisely best spin to give back. She was ready when asked about guns to mention her father had a gun to protect them from racists in her Birmingham childhood. She knows fully well that her example does not refute the fact that a gun in your home greatly increases your risk of dying from suicide, accident, murder. She knows fully well that her response misleads people. But she also knows her response was a stone cold spin winner. Exactly the same with her line that the last thing we want to see in our rear view mirror is a mushroom cloud. She knew fully well that the odds Saddam had or would explode a nuclear bomb were basically zero, she knew invasion would increase the odds many many Americans and others would die, but she also knew she had a stone cold spin winner.

Condi with reporters is like Usain Bolt in a race against Donald Trump.

I know she has been a force for evil but I am in awe of her skill.

7. She has a PhD which usually means she's the kind of person who does her homework

 

in a very thorough and meticulous way.

She is no dummy. It would be a mistake to underestimate her. That also means she has a higher degree of culpability than others if she is using her talents to coverup for evil actions and behavior.
