You know in light of the fact that Donald Trump is seriously screwing up with foreign policy, it should be remember that we were warned about that very thing.

Courtesy of The Hill: 

A former Hillary Clinton spokesman on Friday said Clinton warned the nation that President-elect Donald Trump was not prepared to conduct international diplomacy. 

Shortly after news emerged of Trump's controversial phone conversation with Taiwan's president, former Clinton campaign spokesman Brian Fallon tweeted: "If only someone had warned us Trump was not up to the task of international diplomacy."

You remember that person right?

The one who had the knowledge, experience, and temperament to actually do the job of the President of the United States.

The one who had prepared her whole life for the job, and could essentially do it in her sleep.

The one who actually won the hearts of the American people as indicted by her stunning popular vote victory.

Yeah that one.

For the next four years I guarantee that this person's reputation will take on mythical proportions, and that by the time we get to the end of Trump's first term there will be more people lying about having voted for Hillary Clinton than claiming they were at Woodstock. 

Count on it.

    Ah, but the media had to harp day after day about the emails, you know. Hillary Clinton warned the American people about many aspects of Donald Trump but the US media preferred innuendo about emails, etc.

    And yesterday someone from North Carolina went to Washington D.C. to "self investigate," with his semiautomatic weapon in hand, the web myth about the pizza restaurant and an underage sex ring. (I won't even mention who the story was about because we've all seen versions of it. Even Trump's national security advisor Flynn spread the myth as fact during the campaign. Gee, I wonder how reliable his sources will be in the future.)

  2. When the President of a country outright lies, he will not have the trust of any other country. America will be shunned. If this hideous situation was a reality show, America would be voted off the planet.

    1. That petition isn't going to get anyone "out".

      It will do exactly nothing but document that outrage and protest the majority had for the voters that didn't have the critical thinking skills to make an intelligent choice.

      Sure, I think it will be great to get over 6 million signatures. I signed it and then opted out of the fucking e-mail they always send even though I specify, no, I don't want to be on any e-mail list.

      I think it would be great if they got 10 million.

      But it won't change anything and the electors will vote for Trump anyway.

      But for historical documentation, it will be fine. An amusing anecdote to an otherwise dark and dreadful piece of American history, should America survive long enough to have it written.

    What happened to the there is only one president rule? Trump is not supposed to be doing anything with foreign policy until he's president.

      If the war starts before he's sworn in will it be blamed on President Obama?

      That's actually a serious question.

      If a war is started AFTER Trump is sworn in, it will be blamed on Obama. That's how the Republicans work.

      The bails outs and other crap that Bush did while President was blamed on Obama.

      And the stuff Obama did that helped the economy was either credited to Bush or to the Congress.

      Democrats never get the praise they deserve. The Republicans always take the credit and give the Democrats the blame.

      And the media goes along.

      That's why the "liberal media" is a LIE. The media are owned by the Republicans. Look who owns the networks, the newspapers. Even Facebook isn't "liberal" given all of the fake news they let run wild.

      The media MADE Trump. They put him in the White House. They could have taken him down from day one, but he was too profitable. The ratings were too good. So they built him up for PROFIT. Now they're saying, gee, maybe we shouldn't have. But too late now. They'll profit off every story coming out of his administration too. The worse the better.

      @ 10:57 I agree the republicans take credit or blame depending on the situation.

      however it is also the fault of the Democrats who do not correct this misinformation or do not "crow" about the good they have done.

      They depend on the people to figure it out on their own. Big mistake, they need to continually remind people just exactly who saved the economy etc. over and over.

    For the good of the country even though Trump won the ELECTORAL presidency, he should have offered the most powerful Vice presidential job to Hillary Clinton. Hillary would have been responsible for domestic and foreign policies while President Trump would be responsible for Trump golf courses, Trump hotels, Trump alcohol, Trump steaks, Trump ties, Trump shirts, Trump Towers Trump Universities foreign and domestic.

    Am hearing that Trump's call with Taiwan was planned. By whom would be interesting to know. Manafort, for example, has been seen at Trump Tower. So Trump is being encouraged to antagonize China by phone and by twitter.

    You've got to wonder how much more interest China is going to want when all it's US debt comes up for renewal. And with Trump's spending plans, the debt limit will probably need to be increased and the money is going to have to come from somewhere (since it won't be coming from the richy folk who will be getting tax decreases). China is not going to be a benevolent lender to a country run by a man who bad mouths them and offends them at every opportunity. Oh boy.

      Around the time of the call, John Bolton was said to have been seen at Trump tower. I also heard on CNN Sunday morning that Bolton was all for the call.

    2. So we're looking at the biggest Depression in U.S. History with runaway inflation, due to all of that paper money we're going to have to print to pay off the Chinese.

      So much for Mr. "Greatest Evah" Businessman.

      Don the Con never understood how the economy works.

    Yes, the world would be a saver place with Hillary as president.

    Now we have an insecure, weak, lying sociopath as president elect that is more concerned about his businesses and ego than the American public.

    Traitor trump doesn’t know the meaning of diplomacy and unfortunately for us, foreign diplomats already know all his weak points.

    After 8 years of hearing Republicans whine without evidence about the "least transparent President ever" we now have this gut churning disaster. No one knows what Trump's strategy is. Every move he makes is inevitably followed by "Is this guy just a dangerously unqualified idiot or is this part of some greater overarching strategy?" Unfortunately, we won't know the truth until it is too late.

    I read yesterday that Trump doesn't even plan on submitting a budget that he's supposed to have ready in, I think, Feb.

    Last night, I came across this article that shows a very clear conflict of interest re Ivanka. She was in on that meeting with Abe when her own company had already been working making a deal with the Japanese govt. (as her biggest investor in Japan) for two years:

    Wow. To wake up to the news that idiot Ben Carson will be in charge of HUD after all--WOW.

    I'm all for Trump's admin failing and completely collapsing (as long as we don't get bombed, I can deal with it) because that is what it's going to take to get anything through the heads of the f-ing imbeciles who voted for him and the evil Repubs who have been in charge of congress, but what does tick me off is that Trump's choice of Carson shows just how much he doesn't give a damn about the country's minorities, poor, and those in the cities who he knows didn't vote for him.

    The choice of Carson shows Trump's utter contempt for the people HUD is supposed to help. He must think that by choosing someone who's African American we're not going to see through to the truth. It is an utter lack of caring he's showing and contempt.

    Speaking of women and science, I just read that Ivanka and her asshole husband and the kids are moving to DC. (BTW, oldest child's in kindergarten and will adjust to the move just fine. It must be harder on Barron b/c he's older.)

    And she's meeting with Al Gore.

    It kills me how Kushner trashed Hillary behind the scenes and Ivanka allowed all the hate that spewed from him and her brothers and Trump, and now they're trying to swoop in as the liberal part of the family and make people feel better about the election.

    "White Women and Fear"
    "Obama’s presidency threatened the white supremacist conception of power and privilege that has ruled the United States from day one."the politics of fear conditioned and defined their political choice. In the face of a threat to their perceived position of racial superiority; Trump, looked to this self-defined strong man as a source of security. He, they believed, would protect them from these multiple threats, and they, in turn, would offer him their vote and their loyalty." it is undeniable they rely on Donald Trump, one of the more odious examples of brutal patriarchy, to protect and defend them."I wrote this because to stimulate discussion and understanding about why 53 percent of white women who voted cast their ballots for Trump. I hope it will generate ideas about where we go from here. I look forward to your thoughts."

    1. They didn't vote for Trump because of Obama.

      They voted for Trump because of Hillary.

      There are conservative women that still think a woman should not be a leader, should not run a country, that shouldn't even work for a living. They believe a woman should subjugate herself to her husband. The bible tells them men run things and women don't. That's their mindset.

      Then you've also got your rabid conservative Republicans that won't vote for a Democrat.

      There's also the women who simply vote they way their menfolk order them too, even though no one is supposed to be able to see your ballot. Probably absentee ballots where the husband checks his wife's choices before it goes in the envelope.

      Amazing to believe that there are actually women that hated Hillary more than they hated Trump. Yeah, really.

    The EC just needs to elect Hillary. His daughter is going to keep her business, her Dads business, and benefit financially from it. Sticking her nose into policy. People did not elect her. Again fat orange baffoon shiws no person of power. He is just a fat spoiled child as elected not by popular one person vote.

  19. Brian Fallon needs to keep this up continuously in response to every gaffe and blunder Trump commits. Especially BEFORE the electoral college meets, but certainly after the inauguration.

    He needs to be the thorn in Trump's side that never goes away.

    The gloves need to come off and there needs to be a huge slap upside the head reality check to the Deplorables and the rest of the stupids that voted for their orange savior.

    I think he needs to hammer Trump's budget and balance that with Hillary's social security and medicare pledges.

    Let all those old white fuckers know they just voted to lose their benefits to that obscenely rich con artist.
