Rep Speier tweet: "I assure you our adversaries are not deliberating on the fairway."



Jackie Speier ✔ @RepSpeier

Dear @POTUS: Get off the golf course and get into the Situation Room. This is a crisis that requires your full attention and full team. I assure you our adversaries are not deliberating on the fairway.

1. In all honesty

wouldn't it be better if he stayed golfing and let the adults clean up the mess?

4. You're probably right, but Trump drove this hit, you can be sure...

and he's driven pretty much all of the "adults" out of the room.

19. Agree: dump has rid himself of "adults. Disagree: dump is being played by others

There is a disease afoot that is hollowing out the ability of the US government to make rational decisions.

dump is just a figurehead. Lindsay is a pawn as are most of the (r)epuglicons.

The pathogen may be foreign or US or both. But the pathogen wants this country to die.

6. Unfortunately most of the adults have been fired or have quit.

The top officials are incompetent sycophants - but maybe they'd be at least willing to listen to the military commanders who actually know what's going on.

14. It always enhances the chance for a lightning strike to be outdoors

it's only a slight chance, but I'll take any encouragement I can get.

An asteroid the size of a bus came close to earth last week. I found myself wishing for VW Beetle chunk to break away, rip into the atmosphere at 18,000 mph, and crush him on the 18th green. The fact that I have these thoughts makes me worry about my ultimate sanity if he gets re-elected.

And they don't give a shit over how many Americans - or Iranians, for that matter - get killed.

23. My thoughts exactly - 100% with you

 

He doesn't even play golf well, but let him stay on the fairway, kicking the ball to a better spot, cheating all his way to the green.

I know the tweet is supposed to bring to light the jackass is not doing his job, but I rather he doesn't, keep him away from any decision making, keep the buffoon out of sight as much as possible.

34. 100% true, but it's still important for the MAGAts to understand

that their hero is MIA and incompetent. In general, we over think everything and end up looking weak. He needs to be hammered constantly, from every angle.

5. We might be better off if His Lardship stays out of the Situation Room

and just keeps his fat ass on the golf course where he can't do any damage beyond driving his golf cart on the greens.

24. Put Fat Donnie in the Situation Room and take away his non-secure Twitter phone.

Disconnect the secure land line telephones. Set up the televisions so they only play reruns of "The Apprentice" when he was host and a repeat of his win in 2016. Put Lindsey Graham and a case of Chap Stick in the room. Take all the briefing manuals off the shelves and replace them with Big Macs and KFC. Play a continuous loop tape, "You are the most fantastic president ever in the history of the world. No one has ever done what you have done. Vladimir Putin loves your ass."

Finally, lock the door from the outside. Then weld it shut. Build a moat in front of the door and fill it will alligators. Finally, build a wall between the IMPOTUS and the real world.

7. OMG! Is he actually still playing golf today???

He isn't in Washington? He's at Mar-a-Barfo???

He pulled the trigger and then left the room? Or maybe he wasn't even in the room in the first place?

And WWIII is seriously trending now. Holy Shit!

So everybody with really pressing business can reach him. Or locate him with GPS.

10. Well to be fair

I don't think the Orange Clown really adds much to deliberation. Might as well keep him as far away from the decision-making as possible.

He certainly doesn't add anything to the process whatever it is.

36. Yup, it's even worse when they are bonkers.

Like all those sickly inbred kings, queens and lords in feudalism. They kept taking more and more away from the people that eventually it became against the law to pick up a dry rotted stick in the woods or to kill a rat.

A single or even a small group of absolute rulers is a recipe for disaster.
