America's humiliation continues as Trump rants, rambles, and lies in London

Donald Trump's public behavior continues to get worse with each passing week. Whether caused by the escalating strain of an impeachment trial, a severe case of jet lag or something (cough) medical, Trump's performance in London earlier Tuesday was a spray of nonsense, bizarre claims, bullshitting, gaslighting, and possibly straight-up forgetting his own supposed policies.

Trump straight-up embraced the imperialist argument his staff apparently used as leverage to convince him to keep some U.S. troops in Syria, claiming that "We have taken the (Syrian) oil. I've taken the oil. We should have done it in other locations, frankly, where we were. I can name four of them right now, but we've taken the oil ... our great soldiers are right around the oil where we've got the oil."

Asked whether the United States supports Iranian protesters challenging their government: "I don't want to comment on that, but the answer is no. But I don't want to comment." Aside from the indistinguishable-from-parody phrasing, both Trump's secretary of state and Donald Actual Trump himself publicly stated the exact opposite position in the last 24 hours.

He refused to confirm that the United States would come to the aid of other NATO members who came under military attack.

Trump badgered the French president in an excruciatingly strange exchange, asking him "Would you like some nice ISIS fighters? I could give them to you."

1. He's repulsive. I'll bet the world leaders can't wait until

he’s gone.

2. I wish our allies would flat out denounce him for the unpresidential, corrupt buffoon he is. The

international community should help drum this illegitimate “leader of the free world” out of office or at the very least go on record calling out his unfitness.

Stop coddling him. He has insulted most of you.

3. At least shoot down his claim that we are now respected around the world again.

He says that crap as if Obama had humiliated us in the eyes of the rest of the world. A joint statement flat out saying Trump is a disgrace would be nice.

5. Yes! Yes! He is lying about the trust and respect Obama commanded as the leader of

the leading superpower in the world. Our allies see Trump’s incompetence, botched foreign policy, and that he is in thrall to Putin.

4. our allies are terrified that they might see another 4 years of this

just like we are.
Stop coddling? Remember -- this is the very stable genius we are seeing. Imagine the damage when he is enraged! Do we really need two or three more Syrias?

(not that I don't understand your sentiment. believe me!)

6. And he is vindictive and tragically the most powerful person, due to his position, in the world. I

do hear you. Maybe a few unauthorized biographies, but yes, result would be the same. He would
take his revenge.
