Trump just made a mess of a statement about Hong Kong




Daniel Dale (CNN)

@ddale8
Trump: "The Hong Kong thing is a very tough situation, very tough." He says "we'll see what happens" and "I hope it works out for everybody," "including China." "I hope it works out for liberty...everybody...including China. Hope nobody gets hurt, hope nobody gets killed."

4. If the U.S. had any authority or credibility left

That weak sauce comment surely put the kibosh on it. This is what passes for a "tough guy" for Trump's fanboiz.

Nobody in the media will call out this limp response by the President, because they won't want to make a bad situation worse and let themselves in for all the blame when the situation in Hong Kong inevitably goes south.

5. And then there is this:

Trump said his retweet of the Clinton-Epstein conspiracy theory was "fine" because it was from a man with 500,000 followers who is "very respected."



Oy!

14. Terrence K. Williams, a conservative commentator and comedian

Died of SUICIDE on 24/7 SUICIDE WATCH ? Yeah right! How does that happen," Terrence K. Williams, a conservative commentator and comedian, wrote in the message retweeted by Trump. In a two-minute-long selfie video recording, Williams alleged that the Clintons were responsible for Epstein's death.

Trump concludes his pre-flight media appearance by listing some questions he wants reporters to investigate about Bill Clinton's relationship with Epstein.

6. Translated: "I haven't a clue what this is all about. Hope no one questions me on it . . .

Hope it fades quickly without any negative impact on me. Hope there's beautiful cake for lunch."

7. "Very tough" is Trump speak for "I am clueless about this".

but if you read between the lines, he's really saying, "I really don't care, do U?"

11. He is so out of his depth it is frightening.

This is what he says no matter what the situation: Unrest in Hong Kong, floods in Iowa, natural disasters, contaminated water, mass shootings...

"..a very tough situation, very tough." He says "we'll see what happens" and "I hope it works out for everybody,"

Translation: "I am an ignoramus and I don't have a fucking clue."

18. There was a time the US would stand up for and support freedom and Democracy

Now we have a sociopath for a president and a radical republican party that embrace brutal dictators like putin, kim, and orban and only seem concerned with lining their own pockets and dismantling our democracy.
