Sad and pathetic. Not the Donald as he is the man who he's always been.
The real tragedy is that so many Americans that enable Trump to make our country
look like fools on the international stage.
Where’s all of Dear Leader’s supporters?
Mark Shields, from PBS, described Trump this way:"He kisses up,
and kicks down." Trump only ever acts in his own self-interest.
The feelings of others - like Otto Warmbier's parents - never enters his
mind. He doesn't make decisions based on what is right, only what
get's him what he wants. Trump has to have an enemy - his
popularity depends on it. He hasn't done anything to actually help the
people of his base. His only accomplishment is a huge tax subsidy to the already
rich, which has added Trillions to our deficit. He sure knows how
to insult, mock, and lie though. He is very good at creating an enemy and then
getting his followers to feel like he is on their side because he hates the
"enemy" as much as they do.So Trump will continue to kiss up
to Putin, the Saudi Crown Prince, and Kim Jong-un and kick at everyone else.
There is no one or nothing that Trump won't try to exploit for personal
gain or attention. Now, Trump, after being caught in another lie, by his own
previous words, has to hold another press statement to change his position,
again. Somehow, he'll blame his own, recorded words and actions on the
"Fake News" media, and a ever shrinking support base will believe him
over their own eyes and ears.
You cannot dis Trump's new love without repercussions.He will
attack the media even more now.

"Again, the relationship is very good. He likes me. I like him. Some people
say, 'Oh, you shouldn't like him.' I said, 'Why
shouldn't I like him? I like him. We get along great. We'll see what
happens." -TrumpI can't even imagine how this statement,
along with his belief that Kim didn't know about Otto is not the end of
Trump. Not only did he not press Kim about the torture and death of Otto, he
acts like it doesn't even matter. If this isn't your red
line, folks, I -don't know- what could be.Evan McMullin put it
best: Trump is inhuman.
Kim Jung Un would certainly know what was happening to an American being held in
his country. He is a ruthless dictator who rules with an iron hand. There
isn't anything that happened to their son he wouldn't have known about
or ordered. For Trump to defend him with this issue is inexcusable.
This is not a story about how Otto Warmbier's parents blame North
Korea's "evil regime" for their son's murder. They have always
blamed North Korea. They recently won a $500 million lawsuit against North
Korea.No, this is a story about Donald Trump believing Kim Jong
Un's assertions that he knew nothing about the treatment and conditions
that led to Otto Warmbier's death. "I take him at his word," were
Trump's actual words.This is just the latest gruesome example
of Trump throwing anyone under the bus if doing so furthers his self-interests.
Combine that with Trump saying "we fell in love" and calling
Kim his "friend" and it shows tremendous disrespect for Otto
Warmbier's parents and for Otto Warmbier's memory.
