But Trump had to weigh in, prompted by a reporter’s question, of course. Honestly, why would any reporter ask a president about what he thinks of a celebrity sex scandal unless that reporter was pretty sure she’d get a story? And she did.
“I’ve known Harvey Weinstein for a long time,” Trump told reporters outside the White House, as seen in a video posted online by CNN Saturday. “I’m not at all surprised to see it.”
Obviously, the reporter had to ask in response to him: “I asked him how that was different from Access Hollywood tape?”
TRUMP COULD HAVE SAID INSTEAD: “America has big problems, let’s not waste our time with questions like that.” And, if Access Hollywood tapes were mentioned, he could have said “REALLY? Got anything more important than that today?” OR “So, that was a set-up questions? AH, I’ve got it now. Have a nice day.”
BUT, he had to weigh in on HARVEY WEINSTEIN. STOP, Mr. President. Just STOP.
I know Mr. Trump LOVES hubris, and every family who’s lost a family member or a home is “a GREAT family” (What?) and every hurricane is the BIGGEST in history, and every group is ‘thousands and thousands’, etc….but GOOD TOWELS? They’re PAPER TOWELS, how “GOOD” CAN THEY BE??
“They had these beautiful, soft towels. Very good towels,” Trump said. “And I came in, and there was a crowd of a lot of people. And they were screaming, and they were loving everything. I was having fun. They were having fun. They said, ‘Throw ‘em to me! Throw ‘em to me, Mr. President!’”
VERY GOOD TOWELS?
I post this only because he set himself up again….for criticism. AND, mostly, I post this because it shows his personality, which isn’t such a bad thing……
SEE, I THINK THIS HUBRIS ALSO CONTRIBUTES TO HIS GREAT LOVE OF COUNTRY, THAT WE CAN BE ‘GREAT AGAIN.’ ‘THINK BIG…’ ‘THINK GOOD…’ IS IT REALLY SUCH A BAD THING?
BUT TOWELS? 🙂
Here is what Trump COULD have tweeted instead:
Be QUIET. Be CLASSY. And “Equal Time?” If only he hadn’t capitalized it….because there was the law that demanded Equal Time, which Reagan kicked out in 1987, something which has helped Conservatives have all-Conservative radio, TV, etc.
NOTHING….who cares what the late night dopes say? And, frankly, I think it is becoming so predictable and SO hateful that people might just be getting sick of it. And, please, Leftwingers, NEVER EVER again talk about FOX’s bias! As I’ve published on GeeeZ (https://geeezblog.wordpress.com/)
SO many times, FOX always has big-time Lefties, CNN very rarely has a Republican and, when they do, it’s usually a hate-Trump Republican. So, let’s stop saying the Conservatives are the only ones showing bias, you big-minded Leftwingers who won’t even let Conservatives speak on college campuses without violence.
If Trump keeps this up, I won’t need this blog and the world will be a better place. Dare we think he found me and took heed? HA!
Trump should have said, in his speech in Alabama:
“I would like to thank those NFL players who show such admiration and reverence for our great country by bending down on a knee during the playing of our national anthem. Thank you for exhibiting such patriotism, thank you for acknowledging the great sacrifice of our soldiers over the years, thank you for setting such a good example for our children. More Americans should be on their knees thanking God for all He has done for our great country. God bless the NFL players!“
Obviously, he’d have made his point and oh, brother, would it have ticked off the NFL players and the media! THIS, I’d love to have seen!
HOW ABOUT YOU?!!
