CNN Hot-Take: Trump Arrives In Japan For Flattery

World leaders travel the world, and get pomp and flattery. International diplomacy, right? Nothing unusual, right? Certainly, Obama received that type of treatment. But, hey, we’re in the age of Trump, so

Trump arrives in Japan eager for flattery and pomp

President Donald Trump arrived in Japan on Saturday eager for a visit salted with flattery and pomp — particularly as he escapes a hostile political environment back home.

The President and first lady Melania Trump landed in Tokyo ahead of a largely ceremonial visit to recognize the country’s new emperor. Later they attended a dinner with Japanese business leaders meant to promote investment in the United States — fueled along, Trump hopes, by a new trade agreement that reduces the $68 billion trade deficit with Japan.

The headline and first paragraph have nothing to do with the rest of the story, which is moss with Cght regarding trade talks and the problems with China and North Korea. But, hey, TDS. Which is why CNN mentions a small earthquake in Tokyo right before Trump arrived.

    CNN suffers from Elwood Derangement Syndrome. They will be sold to Al Jazeera by 2023 for $1. They wouldn’t know either the truth or an impartial news item if it hit them on their collective heads. Maybe that’s why the day after they announced there would be no layoffs due to plummeting ratings they announced there would be 300 layoffs due to plummeting ratings. They invented Fake News and made it an art form. They haven’t reported a truthful item since 1992.

      It seems like Kye has Elwood Obsession Syndrome!!

      You just cain’t quit me, can you? The next time I’m in Philly (family and a company nearby) let’s get together for a drink!

      Any criticism of the Dark Lard is considered FAKE NEWS by his worshipers. LOL.

      We all wish trump was better than he is. We all knew he was not fit for service before the election, but a minority of American voters thought it would be fun or “funny” to vote for an incompetent asshole grifter, and especially, against the nasty Clinton! What harm could it do?

      Better and cheaper healthcare! Lie.
      Mexico will pay for The Wall! Lie.
      No nukes in North Korea! Lie.
      Higher taxes on the wealthy! Lie.
      Peace in the middle east! Lie.
      End corruption! Big lie.
      Infrastructure! Lie.
      Balance the budget! LOL.

      Trade war…
      War on US institutions…
      Coarsening of America…
      Dividing America…
      Unindicted co-conspirator…
      Obstruction of justice…

      60% think US going in the wrong direction.

      He has at times cooperated with Russia.
      He has yet to kill the economy.
      Mitch gave him 2 Supremes and hundreds of Federalist Society judges.

    “eager for flattery”: so CNN is reporting that DT is a weak, egostistical man with low self-esteem that needs his apple polished by sychophants and flatterers. And then he has some meetings and stuff.

    Mexico will pay for The Wall! No Lie. (he’s sending them back, isn’t he?)

    Higher taxes on the wealthy! Lie. (no, that’s a Demo thing)
    Peace in the middle east! No Lie. (where’s IS?)
    End corruption! No lie. (the Demos are running scared)
    Infrastructure! No Lie. (he wants a real bill, not Zippy’s phony stimulus)

    Trade war… Good
    War on US institutions… You mean getting things done in spite of Demo obstruction?
    Coarsening of America… Travelgate, Vince Foster, Lincoln Bedroom, Ah did nawt have sex with thet wonam, Miz Lewinssky
    Dividing America… bitter clingers
    Unindicted co-conspirator… Let’s see where that happened
    Obstruction of justice… see below
    Grifter… Whitewater

    60% think US going in the wrong direction. According to whom?

    He has at times cooperated with Russia. Not as much as Teddy Kennedy or Bucketmouth
    He has yet to kill the economy. Zippy tried to do that
    Mitch gave him 2 Supremes and hundreds of Federalist Society judges. Yaaay. The 9th Circus is no longer a joke.

    And from the Gray Lady.

    Seems the old girl is worried Trump’s release of FISA warrants against him and his staff because it will expose the truth about Obama’s spying.

    But it is the human source that particularly worries some former and current intelligence officials. Long nurtured by the C.I.A., the source rose to a position that enabled the informant to provide key information in 2016 about the Russian leadership’s role in the interference campaign.

    John O. Brennan, the C.I.A. director under Mr. Obama, would bring reports from the source directly to the White House, keeping them out of the president’s daily intelligence briefing for fear that the briefing document was too widely disseminated. Instead, he would place them in an envelope for Mr. Obama and a tiny circle of aides to read.

    Looks like it’s Zippy who’ll be the ex-(and I use the word loosely)President who could be indicted.
