1. Could you give a brief description?

I can't stand looking at the asshole, and looking at him while he's polluting the air with his bullshit really sends me off unto the weeds. Thanks.

2. Same request. Please don't make me watch

 

I'd rather eat crushed glass or slide down a razor blade into alcohol than listen to him.

A transcript of the crazy would be nice.

thanks!

8. It's from an interview with Trump and Salman bin Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa over Iran/SA/Oil strikes.

Trump said this crazy shit:

Q:
You don't think that we're a step closer to that, given what Iran just did?

DT:
No. I'm not. Personally, I'm not concerned at all. We have military power the likes of which the world has never seen. I'm not concerned at all. I'd like to avoid it. You know, when I came here three years ago almost, General Mattis told me, "Sir, we're very low on ammunition." I said, "That's a horrible thing to say." I'm not blaming him; I'm not blaming anybody.
But that's what he told me. Because we were at a position where, with a certain country -- I won't say which one -- we may have had conflict. And he said to me, "Sir, if you could, delay it, because we're very low on ammunition." And I said, "You know what, General? I never want to hear that again from another general." No President should ever, ever hear that statement, "We're low on ammunition." And we now have more ammunition, more missiles, more rockets, more tanks, more -- we have more of everything than we've ever had before.
More jet fighters. When I came here, 50 percent of our jet fighters didn't fly. You know that. And they were in bad shape. And now we have the best fighters in the world. Everybody wants to buy them. Are you buying our jet fighters?

SK:
We are, sir.

DT:
Which one?

SK:
The F-16.

DT:
That's great.

SK:
Signed it here.

DT:
You have good taste.

SK:
Thank you, sir.

DT:
That's a great one. So, we are very high on ammunition now. That's a story I've never told before. Breaking news. But we have -- we were very low. I could even say it stronger. I don't want to say, "No ammunition," but that gets a lot closer. I said, "I never want to hear that again. And I never want another President of the United States to hear that again." Could you imagine, as President, when they say, "We're very low on ammunition?" By the way, stronger than that, but I'm not going to go there.
That was what I was told. And I said, "I never want to be in a position like that again." And he said, "Could you delay if we do something, sir? Could you delay it as we fill up?" And that is what I inherited from the past administration. And, in all fairness, to President Obama, to administrations before President Obama.
That's what I got stuck with. And we fixed it, and we fixed it good. The Crown Prince understands $700 billion; the next year, $718 billion; and the next year, which is right now, we just got approved, $738 billion. And that's a lot of money even for Bahrain. Right?

SK:
It's a lot of money, sir.

12. The Pentagon...

has never lacked for anything. "Low on ammunition". The U.S. has enough firepower to end civilization many times over.

13. Sure, but Conventional munitions stocks do vary.

That said, Trump is a fucking psycho and obviously making shit up. There's no way we were so low we'd need to defer a conflict, short of an opponent like Russia or China.

9. Then why did Trump kill four of our troops in Niger by refusing them resources that they asked for?

Then why did Trump kill four of our troops in Niger by refusing them resources that they asked for?

Our military requested more resources for Niger mission(s) but the Trump administration refused them.

11. I bet the fat bastard seriously considered invading Niger, and wanted a pretext.

From a Republican point of view, Niger would've made an almost perfect target:

Black, Muslim, Arabic-speaking, associated in the public mind with uranium and intrigue, and dirt-poor.

But therein, I suspect, lay the problem: they're so poor and defenseless, in fact, that someone must've convinced Cheeto that invading them would've risked condemnation by most American voters - who know a stinking bully when they see one.

10. You are great. I read many based on it is you who posted it

But again, his picture should not be used. And clips should be trimmed to Min exposure and Max of compressed crimes and lies.
We are all gaslighted and traumatized. The normalization of the grotesque horrors is too much. I can't listen and I can't watch and I'm not the only one.
