How does anyone completely mess up the opportunity to respect the 100th anniversary

of the WWI armistace? How is that even possible? If you were in Paris last week-end, wouldn't you have wanted and made every effort to be there? It's not like the event was a big secret. The commemoration has been planned all year. And yet Trump managed to befoul and besmirch the event with his petulence, narcissism, and insults. He showed himself to be a rude and clueless asshole, an embarrassment to his country, and an unworthy and feckless ally to our European partners. What good is he? (That's a rhetorical question.)

He has to eat shit at these things. Everyone knows he is a five-time republican draft dodger completely lacking in honor, who is "pretending" to be a tuff guy to mask his own inner-loathing and self-revulsion. In these settings his gross inadequacies and profound vulnerability is obscenely on display.

He really is incapable of maintaining even a facade of normal human behavior. Why he so often just gives up and doesn't even try, I don't know. Probably a combination of laziness, indifference, and overt jerkitude.

Who is on Facebook making fun of Trump. This guy is the real deal, runs for office and everything. Doesn’t win, but he runs. He doesn’t like republicans OR Democrats, but I can have a conversation with him because he’s not a bigot and is is vehemently anti-war.

Anyway, he’s got Republicans friends—(I might.. but they aren’t political on FB) and the wholesale skewed defense and cry-baby fits they respond with is would actually be funny if it wasn’t pathetic.

So I dunno. Trump destroys or lessons everything he touches
