"A lot of yelling" in President Stupid's meeting with US airline execs.

https://www.yahoo.com/news/lot-yelling-president-donald-trump-020047134.html

A meeting between President Donald Trump, the CEOs of some of the biggest airlines in the U.S. and Qatar Airways CEO Akbar al Baker devolved into "a lot of yelling," according to a report from NBC News detailing the meeting.

The group met in the Oval Office in what NBC News called an "'Apprentice'-worthy showdown." The outlet reported CEOs of American Airlines and United Airways were in attendance to air some grievances regarding what they believe are unfair practices by airlines in Qatar and the United Arab Emirates.

However -- and much to Trump's chagrin -- Delta Airlines CEO Ed Bastian was absent, according to NBC News.

"The president kept going back to it," a source who attended the meeting told NBC News regarding Bastian's absence. "There was a lot of yelling."

1. First... secret meetings

Congress needs to get to the bottom of all these secret meetings. It's unAmerican.

Second, what were these airlines thinking? Don't they know that Trump is a fucking idiot?

3. Speaking of secrecy, bet the key to all of his crimes

Would have been found out if someone could tap his nightly cell phone convos.

I think one part that was amazing was that they had to put an ad on Fox to get his attention for the meeting!

8. Yeah, Fox News gets to profit as a gatekeeper for the shut-in TV president

"Pay us money, and the most powerful man in the world will see your pictures and hear your words. Keep it simple, though. He's got to be able to remember your one message long enough to tweet about it, before something else comes along."

14. Yes! And the same for his hotels and Mara Lago and

Golf courses. And think about all that money Cohen was taking in from people paying for access. Jeez- if that's all not impeachable what is?

2. So much for rump's idiotic efforts to help American businesses...an out of control, poorly ...

conducted meeting that resulted in nothing getting done other than 'go to the transportation department' (that is, go somewhere else)...another failure by our loser president.

6. As Mueller said, rump would have been charged w/ a crime had it not been for the rule (a ...

stupid rule) to not charge a sitting president w/ a crime until out of office (or crime(s)), to which I totally don't agree with. Why do we have a VP, etc., in the chain of succession, to the office of the presidency, should something happen to the current so called president?

7. If this dude gets confirmed to replace Coats,

 

kiss our democracy goodbye.

I almost never watch cable news but the Pirates were getting lambasted again so I watched in horror as guests on msnbc and cnn were debating whether this guy would be ok replacing Coats. msnbc and cnn are ramping up their right wing narratives leading up to the election.

We should have impeached the day after the Mueller report came out.

5. Looks like American and United are going to have to

 

buy space at Trump Tower, and hold conventions at Trump's DC Hotel. I bet Qatar and the UAE spend money at Trump properties, oh and yeah, they did bail out Jared at his 666 devil tower.

American and United could lodge a complaint with the WTO, oh yeah, Trump says the WTO is useless, only he knows trade and it's easy for him to win trade wars.

We should have impeached the day after the Mueller report came out.

12. Actually Putin is a check on SA,

 

because he has allied with Iran. If Putin ever stops backing Iran, like say to get the price of oil up from a war, look out.

13. I wonder how many of these people supported the creature

So Fu&*ed them! I know its not good for us and the economy, but until they start feeling it in their wallets they will not change.

People are not paying attention, most people do not read history, they are not informed of what happens in other countries where the creature and his minions have used as their blueprint to screw up the USA. For those who think "It Can't Happen Here!", well it can and it is happening here.

Step 1 was to fill the Supreme Court with minions, he, and republicans, have now destroyed the Attorney General office by electing Barr, he is going to destroy the Intelligence by placing a crook, an accomplice in charge. Little by little the republicans are destroying the country, and all we, and the media, do is to discuss the creature's tweets.

I don't understand why the Intelligence agencies have not taken things in their hands, they need to leak information, they need to compile more information, they need to help get rid of all these crooks, the cost of not doing it will be huge. Everyone seems to be numb.

16. Pay for play

Trump is all about dealing with unethical companies and countries. It's pay for play and Trump doesn't trust anyone who is ethical. In every scenario he wants to favor companies and countries who break the law over ones who abide by it.

17. So their little fat monster has turned on them....Ha Ha

Now they get just an inkling of the shit Trump has dumped on the majority of Americans.

When you always side with the guy who pays the biggest bribes, there is no patriotism or sense of justice.

Those CEOs help create fat Trump. Now they find him difficult, rude, obnoxious and traitorous. Well, who would have seen that coming. The filthy rich made the same mistake with Hitler.
