The Golf Course Ratings War.

The Tiny Tyrant is, once again, where else? On a fucking golf course in Florida. For all the mouthing off this idiot did about President Obama golfing, this massive asshole seems to be unable to stay off of one for a whole three days. Poor Little Tyrant, his pointless bluster in the form of an airstrike didn’t work on his ratings. They stay at the bottom of the barrel. What’s a tyrant to do? Oh, well, let’s take a shot at provoking a nuclear war, that should work! FFS, is there no one who will tell this sociopathic idiot that most people, including Americans, really don’t fucking want a nuclear war, because most of us don’t want to fucking die just yet?

We now have two idiotic, sociopathic tyrants facing off in their “my dick is bigger!” contest, Kim Jong-Un and Little Donnie. Yeah, I’m gonna go paint while I can.

Think Progress has the full story.

Oh, there’s also this:

“Xinhua, the state news agency, on Saturday called the strike the act of a weakened politician who needed to flex his muscles,” The New York Times reported. “In an analysis, Xinhua also said Mr. Trump had ordered the strike to distance himself from Syria’s backers in Moscow, to overcome accusations that he was ‘pro-Russia.’”

Not “pro-Russia”. Right. How in the fuckety fuck does that work when he had his little chat with them, warning them about the strike? FFS, no one can take this idiot seriously, which only ups the possibility he will use nukes. Christ.

    I’ll just add this lovely quote from the [BBC] I already posted elsewhere:

    Mr Trump said in a recent interview that Washington was ready to act without Beijing’s co-operation: “If China is not going to solve North Korea, we will.”

    I think we’ve had quite enough US-style “solutions”, thank you.

    Yes, we have. I expect the doomsday clock went forward a bit.

    Look how old and worn those jets are! They must have spent a lot of time delivering high explosive liberty.

    I despise corporate golf culture because, in my experience with sales culture in the 80s and 90s I associate it with bribing customers. Golf games aren’t just expensive, they’re a way to take a customer out and show them a good time with an expensive dinner and a chance to squeeze them for (whatever) maybe compromise them a bit (like Scalia’s fatal “hunting” expedition) it’s another way of trading pay-for-access off the books, because you have all those chances to talk where the voice recorders aren’t. In sales culture it was pay-for-access and I’m sure it’s the same in politics, or maybe it’s just a chance for people to come throw themselves at the leader’s feet like, you know, they do to golfing mafia dons in a huge number of movies. I don’t think the president is being a lazy jackoff playing golf -- I think he’s being a corrupt sleaze. There are people right now who would pay or do anything to get a golf game with Trump; they can’t just flat-out pay for the chance to bend his ear officially, so it’s done on the nudge and the wink.

    Marcus, I think it’s both. I used to run the art room at a company that had a heavy sales golf culture, and yes, it’s everything you said. It’s also a way for those high up in a company to avoid work. Saw plenty of that, too.
