More on Trump (ii)


Referring to the weekend’s terror attack in London Trump tweeted:

“Do you notice we are not having a gun debate right now? That’s because they used knives and a truck!”

Statistics Trump needs to heed:

At the time of posting: 212 killed and 528 wounded in “mass shootings” in USA so far in 2017.

Compare to:

Since 9/11, six Americans have died per year at the hands, guns, and bombs of foreign-born terrorists.

In particular note the contribution from white evangelical, former vice president candidate Sarah Palin, to see how much of a lover of the truth she is.

    ? “Donald Trump/We love you. …. Britain first/fighting back.”
    So, like ten or so instigators showing up to shout.

    And Palin has no depth of evaluation for meaning in the real world.

    However, I remember her speaking up ONCE. She said, after Trump was making a specific (artificial and not conservative) deal with a company and state, “We don’t pick winners and losers. REMEMBER?” Something pretty much like that. But she has obviously backed off.

    Meanwhile, Mr. Trump has been attacking his own Justice Department (the department he is supposed to head for the U.S. but is clearly not living up to). He tweeted that “they” should have stuck with the original travel ban and not the second one (the “watered down” one). HE SIGNED THE SECOND ONE himself!

    HE SIGNED THE SECOND ONE himself

    But he had his fingers crossed when he signed it.

    Most crisis managers agree: The world became a riskier place to do business in 2016. …. it’s only to get worse over the next three years managers believe.

    Those sentiments derive from a survey of 537 senior executives conducted in November and December by The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) and sponsored by FTI Consulting. The survey assessed the sources of corporate risk in 2016 and its evolution over the next three years.

    The executives, all of whom were involved in the crisis management function of their firms, hailed from 15 industries and represented firms around the world. ……

    Excellent photo presentation for this article. Washington Post has a good article, too, on these “models” of what it has been to be Republican or Conservative.

    This Eric Prince fella is the brother of the woman appointed (and confirmed) to head the Education Department under Trump. The siblings both want to take our money.
