Trump Digs a Hole for Himself Yet Again

CNN is reporting that story that Qatar, one of our best allies in the Middle East, was supporting terrorism was “fake news” was planted by Russian hackers.  As you will recall it was the accusation that Qatar has been supporting terrorism which caused six of our other Mid Eastern allies to cut diplomatic relationships with Qatar.
Is you might also be aware our biggest airbase in the Middle East which is used by our US Air Force to support air strikes against ISIS and other terror organizations is in Qatar so having our other allies in the Middle East at odds with Qatar put us in a very uncomfortable position.
Adding to that problem, Trump, attempting aggrandize himself yet again, took to Twitter to claim credit for leaders of Saudi Arabia and five other nations turning against Qatar – essentially throwing the Emir of Qatar under the bus.
Now we find out that it was all a Russian hoax. So Trump has again played by the Russians, but he has no one to blame but himself. He was so anxious to take credit that he did not deserve that he didn’t wait to discuss the matter with his intelligence leaders who probably had the information about the Russian hacks from the start. Of course they are probably not anxious to share sensitive intelligence data with Trump given his track record.
The have been other Presidents that I didn’t support in the past, but Trump is the first in my lifetime that has proved himself to be an ABSOLUTE MORON.

One thought on “Trump Digs a Hole for Himself Yet Again”

  1. The blatant unfitness to hold the office he occupies is proven almost daily. The real question is why do not his supporters see this when it is so very obvious?
    Trump supporters are a large minority in this nation, the support he receives is , I believe, a symptom of real unrest, fear and uncertainty as to what the future holds for our citizenry. As is the fact that over 92 million registered voters failed to cast their ballots in this debacle of an election.
    In times of great unrest demagogues like Trump have their greatest appeal as voters vote out of fear and not with logic or careful consideration.
    The election of this horrifically unsuitable president is a symptom of economic uncertainty, of the widening gap between haves and have nots, the shrinking of the middle class, 16 years of war and counting which saps the nation of much needed funding for schools, infrastructure and economic repairs.
    But there is also one particular reason that must be mentioned; the lack of effective opposition from the democratic party. The voter is given no real choice between the two parties as first one then the other occupies the White House while no real change is found regardless.
