France kindly corrects false White House video attacking Paris climate change accord.

Courtesy of HuffPo: 

On Friday, just one day after the White House posted its video on YouTube claiming staying in the pact would cost the U.S. economy and jobs, the French Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs posted an “edited” version with what officials said are the actual facts of the matter.

The new video changes messages like “The Paris Accord is a bad deal for America” to “Leaving the Paris Accord is a bad deal for America — and the world.” 

And the ministry’s has the perfect response to the U.S. video’s claims that the pact would cost the U.S. economy 6.5 million industrial sector jobs. “Many major U.S. companies from all sectors, such as Exxon Mobile, Schneider Electric or Microsoft, disagree,” the French video says. 

While the White House video claims the pact was “badly negotiated” by the Obama administration, the French version says it was “comprehensively negotiated.” 

The modified video shows off a deft and clever command of the English language. The fact that it is in English is a clear attempt to communicate with Americans, and in a style very different from Trump’s.

"In a style very different from Trump's" That means coherent.

So to be clear we have, in the span of the span of less than six months, gone from a country admired around the world, to one whose leaders must be corrected by the leaders of other countries like an elementary school child who stayed up late playing video games instead of doing their homework.

If you need me I will be hiding my head in shame until somebody removes this orange shitgibbon from office.

    Two comments/criticism of the article and the video:
    A) the article ends with the original video. BAD. Because that is what stays in people's minds - what they see/hear last.
    B) the edited version of the original video is too fast for many people to read - especially some of the slow learners, who are still trying to learn after all this disaster.

    I feel ashamed at how fast and low we, as a country, have fallen in less than six months time. Incredible.

    So the French came to our aid one war, and we came to their aid in two. Looks like the are trying to even thins up by coming to our aid in a war for our planets survival and against the forces of ignorance, flat eartherz, climate deniers and paid off politicians (That includes u, Scott pruitt). Vive la France! Vive la Terre! Vive le scientifique!

    It does feel hopeful that strong leaders are pushing back at the hate and ignorance that has been spawned and conveyed by the Orangutan!
    AKA the "worlds biggest asshole" among many other colorful descriptive accurate names, ie; dimwit,imbecile,lazy,hateful,liar,racist. Just to name a few.

    “I think it is remarkable that Donald Trump might go to the U.K.,” the commentator explained. “He didn’t go to Portland when two were killed by white supremacists. He didn’t come to New York in March when a white supremacist from Baltimore traveled to kill an African-American man. He didn’t visit Muslims around this country where they had their mosques burned down. And other minority communities — Jewish, and Latinos have suffered hate crimes since he was elected.”

    “He doesn’t go there. America first doesn’t play into red meat he wants to give his base,” an exasperated Obeidallah continued. “This guy — I try not to curse — so it is despicable how he’s playing politics with people’s lives and using terrorism just like he did after Orlando when he was a candidate, saying ‘this is terrorism’ before he knew it and demonizing Hillary Clinton just days after the Orlando attacks.”

    The rest of the world must be horrified and concerned that the POTUS tells whopper lies about them and lays blame for companies like Trump businesses that manufacture overseas.

    People are stupid to overlook the profits of the Trump family who manufacture overseas. Stupid does not even begin to describe them.


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
