MSNBC just brought up "the role of misogyny" in Trump's attitude toward Merkel, May

I don't think there's any question that Trump resents powerful women.

2. I wish one of his siblings would tell us

About his mother issues. I have long been convinced it was his ma who insisted he be sent away to military school.

6. I have too.

Probably why we never hear much about his mother. I am also convinced she was the one who wanted him sent away. I would stake my life that he hated his mother.

8. Not going to happen!!!

When Donald Trump’s father, Fred Sr., died in 1999, the roughly $20 million inheritance was divided up among his children and their descendants, “other than my son Fred C. Trump Jr.,” according to the Times.

Donald Trump had helped draft the will. At the time, Freddy Trump’s children sued, claiming Donald Trump and his siblings had used “undue influence” over their grandfather, who had dementia.

Donald retaliated by withdrawing the medical benefits he had promised to his nephew’s infant son, who suffered from seizures that led to cerebral palsy, according to the Times.

What many people don't realize is that his siblings agreed with him, on withdrawing the medical benefits to an infant!

They won't be saying anything against him!

3. I hope this time Angela Merkel refuses to shake tRump's hand.

He's been so rude to her since the first meeting. It's time he gets the same treatment.

9. That's not how Merkel works. :-)

She will never let personal feelings (or disgust) get in the way of politics. She had to deal with terrible politicians from all over the world, I guess she can handle Trump in the way that is best for the EU, NATO and Germany. Refusing to shake hands sounds very satisfying, but not a great idea in the long run!

5. 'Morning Joe' panel is stunned, frightened and shocked at trump's unhinged behavior!


They called him a human wrecking ball. They're asking,"Are we are witnessing the destruction of NATO?" "This is a crisis!"

They're saying that what he is doing couldn't please Putin more!

Joe said Congress should be on the Capitol Steps calling him out in front of cameras RIGHT FUCKING NOW!

7. Asked if May should remain in power, Trump said, "That's up to the people," ...

As he departed Washington on Tuesday, Trump stoked the deep divisions in May’s government to undermine the leader of America’s closest historical ally on the eve of the NATO meeting. Asked if May should remain in power, Trump said, “That’s up to the people,” and he complimented her top rival, Boris Johnson.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/trump-hits-combative-notes-as-he-undermines-may-praises-putin-ahead-of-nato-summit/2018/07/10/f04b880e-8446-11e8-8f6c-46cb43e3f306_story.html?noredirect=on&utm_term=.f5394d41a8c4

Yeah, there's nothing like undermining the leader of an ally by making it clear you prefer the man who just resigned from her government. Or arranging to meet him, although he no longer holds a government position:

The US ambassador to Britain, Woody Johnson, said meeting Johnson was “not on the schedule but the president makes his own schedule”.

“We’ll make everything possible if the president wants to do something,” he said. “Boris Johnson has been a friend of the president, was a friend during the election and he has a warm and close relationship with the president.
...
“So I have Nato, I have the UK which is in somewhat turmoil, and I have Putin. Frankly, Putin may be the easiest of them all. Who would think! Who would think. But the UK certainly has a lot of things going on,” he said.

“Boris Johnson’s a friend of mine, he’s been very nice to me, very supportive and maybe I’ll speak to him when I get over there. I like Boris Johnson, I’ve always liked him.”

Yeah, you can taste the misogyny there.

15. Oh absolutely

We've seen it time and time again. He finds intelligent, powerful women threatening and often goes on the offense before they can intimidate them. Hillary rattled him during a debate when she accused him of being Putin's puppet and looked at him like a disapproving teacher.
