A Selection of the Embarrassing Bad Craziness of Trump at the G7
Just a few snapshots of Donald Trump’s latest horribly embarrassing field trip to the G7 meeting.

President Trump is blaming President Obama -- not President Putin -- for Russia violating Ukraine's sovereignty by illegally annexing Crime . . .

TRUMP on possibly hosting G7 at a private club he still owns and profits from: "In my opinion I'm not going to make any money." ("Opinion" is doing a ton of work there!) . . . 

Asked to explain why he supports readmitting Russia to the G8, Trump quickly pivots to attacking Obama. He then says "a certain section of Ukraine ... was sort of taken away from President Obama." He doesn't have a single negative thing to say about Russia's illegal invasion.

He blew off the one conference saying that he had another meeting with some leaders.  The problem is, both of the other leaders were at the conference.

He could step out onto his rally stage with the cheering sycophants surrounding him and "Hee-Haw" like a donkey for five minutes and he'll receive a standing ovation. Most of his followers don't give a damn about the substance of his comment (because there rarely is any) so when the lies continually drip from his drooling fat face they really couldn't care less.

Now he wants to siphon off FEMA money for ICE just when hurricane season is starting.  And he is still making nasty ass comments about Puerto Rico and the money they received from the last hurricane which he claims is higher then they actually received.

Also whining about the media and Elizabeth Warren's crowd size and his crowd size are ALWAYS bigger.

Also, he wants this aides to STEAL land for his border wall so he can crow about it before election day.   He'll pardon them if they do anything illegal.

The day's still young......

The money isn't being diverted/can't be diverted!  The President already declared Puerto Rico a state of emergency so that aid can get there quicker.

BTW Puerto Rico has had a lot of problems other than hurricanes - corruption being first and foremost!

You have to wait for the hurricane to hit, don't you?  Maybe it won't be like last time, but you don't give aid BEFORE damage is inflicted!

Trump Misleads on Aid to Puerto Rico

By Robert Farley

Posted on April 2, 2019

President Donald Trump claims that “Puerto Rico got 91 Billion Dollars for the hurricane” and that it received “more money than has ever been gotten for a hurricane before.” Neither of those statements is true.

According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency, as of the end of last year, Puerto Rico had actually received about $11.2 billion in disaster relief payments since 2017.

In all, the federal government has allocated nearly $41 billion, and has obligated about half of it via binding agreements, but as we said, so far just a portion of that — $11.2 billion — has been distributed in Puerto Rico.

To get to the $91 billion figure, a senior administration official told us Trump is including the total allocation for Puerto Rico — $41 billion — plus an estimated $50 billion in future FEMA costs “over the life of the disaster,” which can stretch decades.

“It is accurate to say that $41 billion has been allocated and there will likely be billions more,” Steve Ellis, vice president of Taxpayers for Common Sense, told us via email. “But to just add up actual appropriations (most of which has not actually [been] obligated, much less cash on the ground) to some future cost estimates seems inaccurate to me.”

The president is also wrong to say Puerto Rico got “more money than has ever been gotten for a hurricane before.” The federal government spent more on Hurricane Katrina aid.

Trump’s claim — which he made via a tweet — came as Republicans and Democrats butt heads on disaster aid proposals, with Democrats seeking more aid for Puerto Rico, which was devastated by Hurricane Maria in 2017.

Trump has used this $91 billion figure before. He cited it in a meeting with Republican senators on March 26, and again on March 28, telling reporters, “I’ve taken better care of Puerto Rico than any man ever. We have $91 billion going to Puerto Rico. We have $29 billion to Texas and $12 billion to Florida for the hurricanes.”

We asked the White House how Trump arrived at the $91 billion figure, and a senior administration official broke it down to us like this: $14 billion in FEMA allocations to date, plus $26 billion in non-FEMA allocations — for a total of $41 billion allocated for Puerto Rico disaster relief.

For more details, the official pointed us to FEMA’s Spending Explorer website, which allows users to track disaster aid by state appropriated in 2017 and 2018. It tracks spending in three categories: allocated (which means Congress has appropriated the funds), obligated(which means the government has entered a binding agreement to award funding), and outlayed (which means the money has actually been paid).

As we said, the FEMA calculator shows only $11.2 billion of the $41 billion allocated for Puerto Rico disaster relief has been paid so far. (We should note that not all disaster relief going to Puerto Rico is directly tied to Hurricane Maria. The appropriations also include relief from Hurricane Irma, which was much less severe for Puerto Rico, but which also caused some damage.)

But to get to $91 billion, the senior administration official told us, the president is also adding $50 billion, the “estimated future FEMA costs over the life of the disaster.” The official referred us to a report from the Washington Post Fact Checker that said the $50 billion was “an internal Office of Management and Budget estimate of the potential liabilities over the life of the disaster that would need to be committed under the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act of 1988,” which governs federal disaster response in the U.S. The Post added that the estimate “was described as a high-end estimate subject to change year by year.”

“Stafford Act claims can be paid out for decades, and future claims are very difficult to quantify,” a House Appropriations Committee spokesperson told us.

Post-disaster federal funding comes from two main sources, the Disaster Relief Fund and supplemental appropriations, according to Ellis. By the end of 2019, FEMA estimates that a little less than $21 billion will have gone to Puerto Rico from the Disaster Relief Fund as a result of Maria (with another $3.6 billion going to the Virgin Islands).

By comparison, FEMA to date has spent more than $50 billion from the Disaster Relief Fund as a result of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, including $32.6 billion to Louisiana. Ellis notes that nearly $200 million in Katrina-related disaster aid will come from the relief fund this year, “which gives you an idea of how long these funds trickle in.”

The appropriated funds are harder to track, Ellis said. In addition to Katrina, there were two other major storms in the U.S. in 2005, Rita and Wilma. And in addition to Maria, Hurricane Irma made landfall the same year in 2017. The funds for multiple storms can go into the same accounts, making it hard to track aid for particular storms.

The Congressional Research Service estimates that, in all, “Congress provided roughly $120 billion for Hurricane Katrina.” So even if the president’s long-term cost estimate for Puerto Rico pans out, it would still be less than what was spent by the federal government on Katrina.

Comparing money allocated after storms also needs to account for the severity of the storms, and how much damage they cause.

Although the federal spending for disaster relief in Florida and Texas has been lower, as the president noted, those storms also caused less damage than Maria did in Puerto Rico.

According to a study published in the journal BMJ Global Health on Jan. 18, “the federal government responded on a larger scale and much more quickly across measures of federal money and staffing to Hurricanes Harvey and Irma in Texas and Florida, compared with Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico. The variation in the responses was not commensurate with storm severity and need after landfall in the case of Puerto Rico compared with Texas and Florida.”

First of all we were discussing the current hurricane posing a threat to Puerto Rico....Posts 3, 3.1, 3.1.1 and 3.1.2.  Please re-read.

Second - I requested you provide a link for the claim "He is also siphoning off money from Veterans' pension funds for his 'wall'.

Third - FactCheck.ORG is a distorter of truth, which has yet to fact check the false claim made by Liz Warren & Kamala Harris that Micheal Brown was "murdered."

According to the very article which you provided (ON THE Hurricane Maria aid), FactCheck even admits that the 91 Billion estimate was based on current plus future payments. No where did Trump say we already paid the total 91 Billion. He was making a case for how well Puerto Rico WAS provided for.

Furthermore - We learn from your very own FactCheck that aid to Puerto Rico was second only to aid for KATRINA!  Now there is a revelation! We were told that George W Bush was a no good racist who didn't care about New Orleans! You know the New Orleans that suddenly became an all black city during the Katrina disaster. FactCheck is capable of telling a truth as long as it contradicts a Trump claim - In this case that Puerto Rico "received “more money than has ever been gotten for a hurricane before.”

Trump Tells Aides ‘Take the Land’ as Impatience Grows on Border Wall

The president has repeatedly suggested during meetings on immigration policy that aides “take the land” and “get it done,” according to a person who has heard him say it.  The Washington Post  first reported that Mr. Trump had brought up the land seizures, and had floated the idea of offering pardons to aides willing to break the law, a suggestion he has made before when exploring ways to fulfill his campaign promises.

Not a lie, just another in a long line of schemes trumptard is trying to sneak by fucking average Americans.

Pentagon officials found extra money in   military retirement accounts   that will be diverted to help fund construction of a wall along the U.S.-Mexican border, according to   a report   in the Wall Street Journal.

Defense Department budget experts found an extra $224 million from the military’s new Blended Retirement System because   fewer   service members than expected opted into the new system in 2018, leaving some of that money unspent, according to the newspaper.

Every man in my family has served in the US military since before the Civil War, and if I had my say about where the so called EXTRA money went, it would be to provide more and better care for our Veterans who have given so much more than just their time for our country. There are far too many of our Veterans who are not getting sufficient care and/or treatment, mentally, emotionally or physically. 

We need to be more concerned about those who have served our country and have paid the extra price for doing so, than the imposed fear of who might cross the border. 

Intense hatred of anyone who is not a Republican, does not believe, agree or vote the same as you do is very telling. But, not everyone is begging for handouts. But, our homeless and disabled Vets deserve some help, no matter what their party preferences are.

Second, I can agree that money could go to homeless vets or even the VA.

Third, I am sorry to hear your situation, however, if I were a Gold Star parent, I would want as much money as possible to go to border security so as to not have the same thing happen to other parents. That is my humble opinion.

After receiving praise from Putin, "It is always a great honor to be so nicely complimented by a man so highly respected within his own country and beyond.” - DJT

In response to host Joe Scarborough's observation that Putin "kills journalists that don't agree with him," Trump stated “Well I think our country does plenty of killing also, Joe.”

The day after Flynn’s five calls with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak, Putin states in an official statement that he will not retaliate against the U.S. sanctions.

Trump signed a letter of intent (to build Trump Tower Moscow), dated October 28, 2015, the same day as the third Republican presidential debate. The tower was meant to be the tallest building in Europe, featuring a few floors of prime shopping, a high-end hotel and new office space, topped with 250 luxury residences, homes for the Russian elite. According to the terms, Rozov was on the hook for construction while Trump would simply lend his name and help manage the place once it opened. In exchange, according to the Mueller report, the presidential contender would get a cut of condo sales, beginning with 5% of the first $100 million and gradually stepping down to 1% of everything over $1 billion.

The  Washington Post  reports that Trump disclosed highly classified information to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during their May 10 visit to the Oval Office.

"As President I wanted to share with Russia (at an openly scheduled W.H. meeting) which I have the absolute right to do" - DJT

"By the way, if Russia was working so hard on the 2016 Election, it all took place during the Obama Admin. Why didn't they stop them?" - DJT (So according to Trump, Russia helping him win the election didn't happen, but if it did, it was Obama's fault).

"I look forward to all meetings today with world leaders, including my meeting with Vladimir Putin. Much to discuss" - DJT

"I strongly pressed President Putin twice about Russian meddling in our election. He vehemently denied it." - DJT

"Putin & I discussed forming an impenetrable Cyber Security unit so that election hacking, & many other negative things, will be guarded and safe." (Right, ask the criminals who hacked the election to cooperate on election security, real smart. /s)

"the next time I'm with Putin, I'm going to ask him: who were you really for? Because I can't believe that he would have been for me." - DJT

“President Putin, did you want President Trump to win the election and did you direct any of your officials to help him do that?” - reporter

“Yes, I did. Yes, I did. Because he talked about bringing the U.S.–Russia relationship back to normal.” - Putin

Putin pre-paid Trump with all the help during the election, illegally hacking private US citizen emails and releasing them publicly in an effort to embarrass and sabotage Democrats, spending $1.25 million a month surreptitiously trashing Hillary and helping Trump during the campaign.

Was that before or after Obama kicked the Russians out of the country for attacking us, or before Obama got Russia kicked out of the G-8 for invading Crimea? 

But do tell us how hard trump has been on Russia? At the G-7 trump was almost begging other leaders to let Putin back in. But Obama was schooled by Putin?

Without Russia illegally releasing stolen private citizen emails the day the Access Hollywood tape came out while simultaneously spending $1.25 million a month on fake ads there's simply no way Trump would have managed to secure the 110,000 votes in three swing States that allowed his electoral college victory. To act as if it had no effect is to be intentionally obtuse and one might ask "Why ignore or downplay the criminal election interference unless you're more loyal to a foreign enemy than to the United States?".

"Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer" !

Origin
It is common practice for people to be aware of what their friends are up to but most people ignore what their enemies are doing. This phrase acts as an advice for people, especially who are in a competitive business to be mindful of their enemies to ensure that they are not doing anything untoward. This vigilance would help people overcome any strategy that might have been planned against them

Trumps not a Bowing placating politician like the rest of the world leaders are.

There's a huge caveat in the US' expulsion of 60 Russian diplomats

A State Department official confirmed that the US will not require Russia to reduce the number of staff in its Washington embassy.

Why are you so proud of not reading the report, but continue to make crap up about it?

The report did not address collusion since it is not a crime.  However it did give plenty of examples of "collusion" occurring, without quite meeting the qualifications for criminal conspiracy. (in Mueller's opinion) 

1. Trump was receptive to a Campaign national security adviser’s (George Papadopoulos) pursuit of a back channel to Putin.

2. Kremlin operatives provided the Campaign a preview of the Russian plan to distribute stolen emails.

3. The Trump Campaign chairman and deputy chairman (Paul Manafort and Rick Gates) knowingly shared internal polling data and information on battleground states with a Russian spy; and the Campaign chairman worked with the Russian spy on a pro-Russia “peace” plan for Ukraine.

4. The Trump Campaign chairman periodically shared internal polling data with the Russian spy with the expectation it would be shared with Putin-linked oligarch, Oleg Deripaska.

5. Trump Campaign chairman Manafort expected Trump’s winning the presidency would mean Deripaska would want to use Manafort to advance Deripaska’s interests in the United States and elsewhere.

6. Trump Tower meeting: (1) On receiving an email offering derogatory information on Clinton coming from a Russian government official, Donald Trump Jr. “appears to have accepted that offer;” (2) members of the Campaign discussed the Trump Tower meeting beforehand; (3) Donald Trump Jr. told the Russians during the meeting that Trump could revisit the issue of the Magnitsky Act if elected.

7. A Trump Campaign official told the Special Counsel he “felt obliged to object” to a GOP Platform change on Ukraine because it contradicted Trump’s wishes; however, the investigation did not establish that Gordon was directed by Trump.

8. Russian military hackers may have followed Trump’s July 27, 2016 public statement “Russia if you’re listening …” within hours by targeting Clinton’s personal office for the first time.

9. Trump requested campaign affiliates to get Clinton’s emails, which resulted in an individual apparently acting in coordination with the Campaign claiming to have successfully contacted Russian hackers.

10. The Trump Campaign—and Trump personally—appeared to have advanced knowledge of future WikiLeaks releases.

11. The Trump Campaign coordinated campaign-related public communications based on future WikiLeaks releases.

12. Michael Cohen, on behalf of the Trump Organization, brokered a secret deal for a Trump Tower Moscow project directly involving Putin’s inner circle, at least until June 2016.

13. During the presidential transition, Jared Kushner and Eric Prince engaged in secret back channel communications with Russian agents. (1) Kushner suggested to the Russian Ambassador that they use a secure communication line from within the Russian Embassy to speak with Russian Generals; and (2) Prince and Kushner’s friend Rick Gerson conducted secret back channel meetings with a Putin agent to develop a plan for U.S.-Russian relations.

14. During the presidential transition, in coordination with other members of the Transition Team, Michael Flynn spoke with the Russian Ambassador to prevent a tit for tat Russian response to the Obama administration’s imposition of sanctions for election interference; the Russians agreed not to retaliate saying they wanted a good relationship with the incoming administration.

Speaking rapidly, Collins asked Mueller about part of his report that said, "collusion is largely synonymous with conspiracy."
Mueller first asked Collins to repeat the question.

"Collusion is not a specific offense or a term of art in the federal criminal law. Conspiracy is," Collins said.
"Yes," Mueller agreed.

"In the colloquial context, known public context, collusion and conspiracy are essentially synonymous terms, correct?" Collins asked.
"No," Mueller said.

-------------------------

"Another potential reason for Mueller's confused answer to the question of whether "conspiracy" and "collusion" are synonymous is that an earlier section of his report has a slightly different take on the use of the terms.

In that section, the report says that in looking at whether something "constituted a crime" investigators "applied the framework of conspiracy law, not the concept of 'collusion.'" But it explains that in other contexts, investigators chose to use the word "coordination" rather than collusion. 

"Like collusion, 'coordination' does not have a settled definition in federal criminal law," the report says. "We understood coordination to require an agreement – tacit or express – between the Trump Campaign and the Russian government on election interference.

"We applied the term coordination in that sense when stating in the report that the investigation did not establish that the Trump Campaign coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities."

Whatever the term, Mueller's report said, "the investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities."

This could be serious, maybe even early signs of Alzheimer's or dementia.  I have a friend who is suffering from Alzheimer's, he also would forget what he said just minutes earlier.  Since the doctor put him on some medication it has gotten better, even though we all know that there is no cure.

To clarify for you:

You did not say anything about "conspiracy", you were talking only about "collusion" and I provided you with specific examples from the Mueller report showing "collusion" between Trump's campaign and Russia.

"Yes," Mueller agreed.

"In the colloquial context, known public context, collusion and conspiracy are essentially synonymous terms, correct?" Collins asked.

"No," Mueller said.


Collins then referred to the page of Mueller's report that appeared to say the opposite.
"You said at your May 29 press conference, and here today, you choose your words carefully. Are you sitting here today testifying something different than what your report states?" Collins asked.

"No, if you look at the language," Mueller said, trailing off as he looked at a sheet of paper. He asked Collins to repeat the page, before mumbling a bit and saying, "I leave it with the report."

Trump is a self centered egotistical buffoon that can't string three words together into a coherent thought.  Where have you been?  Haven't you seen any of the headline news over the last three years?

But Trump has been a fierce challenger of the status quo and conventional wisdom.  Why couldn't Obama have done that?  Did Clinton promise she would do that?  Are any of the Democratic candidates promising to continue that?

Trump has reshaped the World Order.  There have been loud cries of despair because Trump has reshaped the World Order.  Trump has forced the United States to really scrutinize the status quo and conventional wisdom.  Do we want to go backwards?  Do we really want to rebuild that status quo?

Democrats didn't give a damn about anything except claiming title to electing the first woman to the Presidency.  And after claiming title to electing the first Black President, Democrats thought that was enough.

Clinton campaigned like a self centered, egotistical buffoon who was entitled to being elected.  Trump was simply a better buffoon than Clinton.

Democrats handed Trump the White House because they ran an inept piece of shit against an accomplished piece of shit.  Trump was better at being a piece of shit than Clinton but Clinton certainly tried to be a better piece of shit.  Bless her heart.

The 2016 election was one of the worst, if not the worst, elections in the history of the United States.  And it seems that Democrats are trying to top their last effort.

Afraid to admit the truth?  MrFrost stated: "Majority of voters voted for Clinton, not trump."  He never claimed a majority of U.S. citizens, but you jumped on it because the truth didn't fit into your claims.

Are you a news reporter or a fact checker?  Neither seems to a qualification to speak truth.

The truth is that about 40 pct of the population fight with each other to impose their ideology onto the majority of the population.  Anyone running for Presidents wins with a minority of a minority.

While news reports and fact checkers try to spritz deodorizer on the facts so they will be accepted as truth; the real truth still stinks.  The United States has become a nation of minority rule.  The American experiment is being undermined by sanitized facts posing as truth.

Which has absolutely nothing to do with your discussion with MrFrost!!

I'd like to rebuild the status quo where America was considered a world leader, rather than a country with a laughingstock like Trump for a president, who blunders from one fiasco to another.  I'd like a grownup to be my president, not a toddler who constantly throws temper tantrums.

Read @6.1.3 again.  What part of "Yes, less of the population voted for Trump." do you not understand?

Clinton received the most votes.  But all the votes received by Clinton and Trump, combined, is less than 40 pct of the population.  How does Clinton getting the most votes (which is less than 20 pct of the population) represent a majority?  

BTW, Clinton only received 48.2 pct of the vote.  The claim that a majority of voters voted for Clinton is false.  Clinton may have received the most votes (a plurality) but Clinton did not receive a majority of votes.

Mr. Frost presented a fact.  And I presented a fact.  Which fact is more factual?

Facts presented by Mr. Frost as factual fails the fact check.  Instead of begging the question, all that's left is jumping the shark.

In other words, you're wrong on all the allegations.

Trump, it seems, will be running unopposed.

Unopposed?

LOL!

Thanks for injecting some humour into the discussion!

William Weld. Weld was Governor of Massachusetts from 1991 to 1997 and is aiming to bring "equality, dignity and opportunity for all" (principles of Abraham Lincoln) back to the Republican party. He's strongly anti-Trump, both in rhetoric and in action, asserting that the president should be charged for obstruction of justice. Interestingly, he's pro-choice, which is unusual for conservatives, but he's also pro-tax cuts and pro-small government. In 2016, he was on the Libertarian ticket as VP for Gary Johnson.

Weld has been making the rounds as a very long-shot candidate, continuing to criticize Trump and warning that the sitting president might not leave the White House voluntarily if he loses in 2020. Weld also says he's continuing his fight to keep the more old-school values of the Republican Party intact instead of the cult of personality that he sees in modern-day Republicanism.

Yes, unopposed.

Everybody has been criticizing Trump for the last three years.  Adding another clown to the car won't change the circus.  If that is the case then Alec Baldwin, Stephen Colbert, and Rachel Maddow should be on the ballot.  Aren't they better at criticizing Trump than any of the Democratic candidates?

IF we are supposed to elect the best criticizer of Trump then none of the Democratic candidates are qualified.

Should the United States recalibrate its relationship with NATO?  Has the service economy really provided a broad prosperity?  Should the United States expend more effort revitalizing manufacturing?  Should the United States return to policies favoring open border free trade or shift on trade policy?  Should the United States do more to support illegal immigration or legal immigration?  Should the United States expand financial solutions to pay for medical care or should the United States exert control over the cost of medical care?  Have the environmental policies of the United States made a clean environment more sustainable?  Does the United States need to adjust its environmental policies?

Trump has put a lot of topics on the table.  Criticizing Trump doesn't tell us about alternatives.  Was the status quo in force before Trump took office really solving problems?  Do we want to return to that status quo or should be consider alternatives?  And what are those alternatives?

And Trump has done so before he was ever a candidate for President.  That news isn't newsworthy.  Everyone already knows all about Trump. 

So, Democrats are proposing to elect a better liar?  Democrats are proposing to elect someone more selective in their insults?  Democrats are proposing to elect someone better at plausibly twisting facts?  And Democrats won't brag about electing a President who is more refined in their lying and insulting?

Democrats are proposing to elect a President that would get more likes on Facebook?  How would that be progress?

You are holding Democrats to Republican standards.  Trump has never "twisted facts", he has his own "alternate facts" instead.

And Democrats won't brag about electing a President who is more refined in their lying and insulting?

No, they will brag about electing a President that does feel the need to lie 3 times an hour.  EVERYBODY LIES, however Trump is running circles around everyone else with pure numbers of lies.

And yet, today Trump says that Fox News is not working for him anymore.

President Donald Trump let loose on Fox News on Wednesday, saying the network "isn’t working for us anymore" while encouraging his followers to look for an alternative to his long-cherished cable news channel. "Just watched @FoxNews heavily promoting the Democrats through their DNC Communications Director, spewing out whatever she wanted with zero pushback by anchor, @SandraSmithFox. Terrible considering that Fox couldn’t even land a debate, the Dems give them NOTHING! @CNN & @MSNBC are all in for the Open Border Socialists (or beyond)," Trump wrote .

Today Trump says that Fox News is not working for him anymore.

Almost immediately after the president’s tweets, Fox News senior political analyst and former news anchor Brit Hume sounded off: “Fox News isn’t supposed to work for you,” he wrote.

Hume wasn’t the only conservative Fox star to fire back at the president. Fox News contributor and radio host Guy Benson essentially repeated Hume’s remarks: “We don’t work for you,” he stated.

Furthermore, Benson also said that Trump was “working the refs,” agreeing with Axios’ Sara Fischer that Trump was playing to a “fringe culture” of rabid supporters whom the president hopes would help push Fox News to intensify its already largely pro-Trump coverage.

MediaBuzz host Howard Kurtz, a former Daily Beast columnist, also took a mild swing at the president’s criticism, writing, “our job is to cover both sides.”
