What President Trump blurted out; what Little Donald really meant

Do you ever get the feeling that President Donald Trump is speaking a foreign language? Or that he’s speaking what he thinks might sound like a foreign language, to cover for his not having done his homework?

Looking back now, we can see whatever it was he said about talking to families of fallen soldiers, he probably needed someone to translate it to himself.

Canadian reporter Daniel Dale explained on Twitter:

Here’s the translation into English, from Craig Battle:

Glad we got that settled.

Now Trump has, reluctantly, called the families of the fallen soldiers. Somehow, inexplicably, Trump managed to make things worse, to embarrass the entire nation. We couldn’t know that, then.

It’s graveyard humor. It seems to me Trump often leaves us fearful, and looking at great tragedy, with no coping mechanism apart from trying to find humor in what he’s done.

Which suggests, to me, it’s time for Trump to go away on his own. He’s damaging the nation.

What do you think?

    If you ever visit the U.S., Jim, drop by Dallas and I’ll show you the library. U.S. history is much different when you’re actually in the U.S.

    “She has a great track record of vanquishing evil-doers……”

    Seriously? are you a star struck teenager? you do realise that she’s still married to Bill…..he’s not been vanquished! There again he’s allowed to grope, rape, harass, fly lolita ..because he’s not evil ….he’s progressive …like Harvey used to be!

    There is not concrete evidence Putin went after her solely, its just the DNC servers were hackable…..there again the FBI has not examined those servers – DNC wont let them – so it could have been anybody. The Russians will always cause mischief. but those leaked emails …..wow….own goal

    Bellicose– she voted for war in Iraq, Libya was her baby
    Slothful — 2016 election! all those weekends off
    incompetent- she was under FBI investigation during the campaign for mis handling of classified documents that she says she never knew were classified. OMG!

    Joe Biden should have been the candidate- and he would have won for god sake! and everyone would have been happy. She needs to disappear not try again like shes doing now for 2020

    Let it go!!!!!!

    No rational analysis ever shows Clinton would have been as bellicose, slothful, and just incompetent, as Trump, on any issue. She has a great track record of vanquishing evil-doers.

    Which is why Putin went after her so hard.

    Village Hiker, Trump is worse than the communist threat of the Cold War, worse than Mutually-Assured Destruction, worse than Vietnam. He does, in fact, insult, disdain, ridicule and pummel our heroes from those conflicts, at every opportunity. Those horrors called on us to show character; Trump attacks and destroys America’s character.

    Admit we cannot know it all? Tell it to Trump. Let us know if you make ANY progress.

  8. I wish he would go away but then we would have Pence who sounds better but is worse in many ways. Perhaps Trump meant well when he spoke to the widow of La David Johnson. He should have said that he did not mean to offend (instead of denying it and calling a congresswoman a liar) and apologized if his comments were not taken as he meant them. He makes everything he touches worse!!!

  9. Yes, he definitely needs to go away. But that would leave us with a President Pence. Not a pretty thought, either.

  10. You write “It seems to me Trump often leaves us fearful, and looking at great tragedy, with no coping mechanism apart from trying to find humor in what he’s done.”

    Afraid of what? Humor in the face your fear, whatever the fear is? Does the presidency of the US really hold that much power over you? Just why? I was born in the last year of the 1940s. So I grew up with the cold war, the nuclear war threat and the shooting war in Vietnam. Korea was in there, but I was too young to know. Yet, I survived happily. You can laugh at this, but life is more than politics. The left, right, Democrats and Republicans, plus all of the other political ideologies and factions, lack the ability to solve our problems. We can do it individually. How, you ask? Seek truth. Ditch the ideologies. Ditch the partisanship. Seek truth. Go beyond the partial truths of science. Admit we cannot know it all. But seek deep and complete truth. It requires a humble heart and a willingness to accept truth. Hopeless humor in the face of fear says something is missing.

    Oh, please, go away, President Trump. A national embarrassment, an ongoing disaster. And as awful as this is, the next act will likely mirror it one way or another.
