Well, Nancy, you challenged Donald Trump to a Battle of Pettiness.

Or after a decade of GOP pettiness with every attempt at “going high” being met with an escalation in douchebaggery and people still voting for them, this was the inevitable response.

In a normal world, brazenly leaking the travel plans of the person 3rd in line to the Presidency for their trip into a war zone would be a major scandal. 

 

Well **** all that **** lol

Two days ago, the story about the shutdown was centered around FBI agents and TSA screeners and Coast Guard sailors defending our country for free, while their commanders advised them on where the food banks are. 

 

And the Dems were willing the story. 

 

Now, it's about Donald and Nancy ruining each other's photo op junkets. 

 

Congratulations on resurrecting another month of "I blame both sides".

I'm confident that Pelosi and her team are having a meeting where the topic is "What should Nancy do since she won't be in Afghanistan?"  It is a chance to needle Trump some more by doing something that, but for Trump, would not have happened.  Here are some options:

 

1.  Do a big PR confab where she and a bunch of Dem lawmakers give out food and whatnot to furloughed workers in DC.  

2.  Pass yet another bill to fund the government and reopen government (with no wall funding, again).

 

Of course, she could also charter a flight and go to Afghanistan anyways.  This would be great because it would show Trump to be powerless to stop her from doing what she wants; it would be an illustration of her doing the government's business with Trump as simply an annoying obstacle.

Doesn't matter. They'll **** it up doing something dumb. Melania will be vacationing on our dime by Saturday.

Meh, tomorrow it will be back to missed paychecks (since it's a Friday).  Saturday is the Women's March on DC, which is the biggest annual Trump protest.  Sunday is the NFL conference championships.  Next week we'll all be back to shutdown horror stories.

If you grew up with various leadership training as a youth (various positions in scouts, school organizations, captain of a sports team, etc - all of these are basically leadership training for you to use later in life) this entire thing, and in general the entire presidency of trump, is just laughable to sit back and watch once you get out of the usual political stuff. 

 

The only leadership quality he has seems to be that he is able to rally support - even if that is a bewildering accomplishment when you realize it’s done using obvious lies and petulance. 

 

He otherwise is the antithesis of posessing leadership qualities. 

 

What pains me is knowing the people who guided me through those things don’t see this situation the same ways. Parents, scout leaders that guided me to eagle and running two different troops, coaches that made me captain.... all who lectured me at one point in time (most, many points in time) on “what it means to be a leader.”

 

I know they know better. I *know* they know better. It’s not a question. 

 

zooming out to 1000 feet, the longer this administration goes on the more I’m convinced the core of this situation is a serious brainwashing over decades has taken place. (And no, I don’t think trump supporters are the only group, but they’re the most easily-brainwashed of them all)

 

i know these people (that I’m specifically referring to) aren’t racist (the most often referenced LCD of the group that gets mentioned). Much like I know they know better. They have to be brainwashed. I don’t have another explanation. 

 

The people that guided me to leading dozens of teenagers to do and produce the things they did, not seeing this as a complete and utter failure of leadership, I just don’t see a better explanation.

One thing you've got to give Trump is that he blessed with his enemies.

Pretty much everyone is an enemy to Trump.

Damn good post @tshile . It's very clear his entire life is built on an ability to front.. 
Leadership is impossible for a person so self centered.

 

Brainwashing is a very accurate term, even if it is a bit 50s corny.. but this is what it does. Conditioned thought and response..  and that is exactly what the base gives, as predictable as the tide.

I love how Trump suddenly has great affection for the federal workers he screwed out of a pay raise.

So they've agreed to back pay for all the furloughed workers right?  House should pass a bill mandating that all workers get paid now instead of waiting for when shut down ends.  If everyone is agreed on eventually paying them, what justification would GOP have on waiting?
