Trump: 'I love cranes. I love trucks of all types'

“I love cranes. I love trucks of all types. Even when I was a little boy at 4 years old my mother would say, ‘you love trucks,’” Trump told a crowd of workers at a Shell petrochemical plant in Monaca. “I do. I always loved trucks. I still do.”

“Nothing changes,” he continued. “Sometimes, you know, you might become president, but nothing changes. I still love trucks ...”

Trump has repeatedly emphasized the manufacturing sector as he moves toward next year's election, often citing his personal history as a real estate developer.

In 2017, the president had a viral moment when he pretended to drive a tractor-trailer during a photo-op at the White House with leaders from the trucking industry.

8. Every picture of him is repulsive. It has something to do

with the subject matter.



As for Mom's astuteness, don't most 4-year-old boys love trucks? I see where he gets his brain power!

5. He loves swatches.

Trump is a moron fixated by fabric swatches.

Trump, the billion-dollar loser — I was his ghostwriter and saw it happen


Charles Leerhson
Yahoo.com, May 9, 2019

EXCERPT...

I tend to see my time with him — the first part of it, anyway, before things started going bad in a hurry — as his “King Midas” period. I never said this to him; if I had, he probably would have thought I was suggesting he enter the muffler business. But there was a stretch of months when everything he touched turned into a deal. The banks seemed to accept the version of him depicted in his first book, “The Art of the Deal,” which we now know from his previous ghostwriter, Tony Schwartz, was entirely invented. They believed it over what they saw on his balance sheets or heard coming out of his mouth, and they never said no to his requests for more money. Often they came up with things he could say yes to before he could think of them himself. As a result, a failing real estate developer who had little idea of what he was doing and less interest in doing it once he’d held the all-important press conference wound up owning three New Jersey hotel-casinos, the Plaza Hotel, the Eastern Airlines Shuttle and a 281-foot yacht.

A real go-getter, right? But Trump’s portfolio did not jibe with what I saw each day — which to a surprisingly large extent was him looking at fabric swatches. Indeed, flipping through fabric swatches seemed at times to be his main occupation. Some days he would do it for hours, then take me in what he always called his “French military helicopter” to Atlantic City — where he looked at more fabric swatches or sometimes small samples of wood paneling. It was true that the carpets and drapes at his properties needed to be refreshed frequently, and the seats on the renamed Trump Shuttle required occasional reupholstering. But the main thing about fabric swatches was that they were within his comfort zone — whereas, for example, the management of hotels and airlines clearly wasn’t. One of his aides once told me that every room at the Plaza could be filled at the “rack rate” (list price) every night, and the revenue still wouldn’t cover the monthly payment of the loan he’d taken out to buy the place. In other words, he’d made a ridiculous deal. Neither he nor the banks had done the math beforehand. Or perhaps Trump knew it because someone had told him, but didn’t want to think about it. The one thing he is above-average at is compartmentalization.

7. Truly, what is he saying?

Is there something in there that is supposed to inspire, encourage, or support the people there on-site that are listening to this drool-driven drivel?
Is there something in there that is supposed to encourage American investment in American products or industries?
Is there something in there that is supposed to give hope to Americans that are out of work and looking for direction for what to do to better their lives?

No, there's nothing in there - nothing.....................

11. He's given us a clue about his emotional age.

He is stunted in emotional development to a 4 year old level.

13. Surely a majority of human beings were horrified seeing those photos for the first time. My God.

He looks completely unhinged. Deeply disturbed.

He behaved that way knowing there were many media people standing just beyond the photo, looking straight at him.

Apparently they always have to choke it all back, hide the shock and disgust, and pretend he couldn't be more normal, or he would pitch another fit.

Just to follow him around, clearly they have to lie by their reactions, just to stay in the pack and keep their jobs.

14. One could imagine...

Perhaps Trump plays with Tonka Toy trucks on the floor of the Oval Office behind closed doors, or maybe he prefers toying with those little green army soldier guys...

15. This particular "speech" really, really, really pisses me off.

We, the taxpayers, are footing the bill for this "presidential event" and it's nothing more than a campaign rally with a bunch of people still on the time clock forced to make up the audience. The asshole even took credit for the place even though Obama is responsible for it - in his first term no less. What a stupid, grifting, ignorant fool.
