Trump Delivers…Interesting Speech to U.N.

A different Rocketman

President Trump delivered his first speech to the United Nations this morning. It went about as well as you might expect. As Politico reports:

President Donald Trump condemned authoritarian regimes in harsh and Trumpian terms during his first United Nations speech, threatening to “totally destroy” North Korea, lamenting Iran’s “pursuit of death and destruction,” and warning that major portions of the world are “going to hell.”

The president spoke before the U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday, delivering what a senior administration official described beforehand as a “deeply philosophical address” promoting his vision of “principled realism.”…

…Trump escalated his rhetoric toward the saber-rattling Kim Jong Un regime beyond his prior “fire and fury” warning, deploying his “Rocket Man” nickname as he told UNGA “no one has shown more contempt for other nations and for the well-being of their own people than the depraved regime in North Korea.”

“No nation on Earth has an interest in seeing this band of criminals arm itself with nuclear weapons and missiles,” Trump said.The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea. Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime.”

Trump’s inflammatory rhetoric seems to match his militaristic views of late; on Monday, as the New York Times reported, Trump said that he likes the idea of holding a “really great parade to show our military strength.”

Really great.

    Is there any fucking thing you Bloggers stand for without hesitation?

    Our President is the most self-aggrandizing, self-centered, shortsighted, ignorant, racist, dangerous, antagonistic, anti-democratic , militaristic, war-mongering MotherFucker this nation has known, and you still hem and haw about descriptions and use generic titles and yearn so hard (like our Awesome Senator-for-Life) to be "fair and balanced" and pretend that both sides are similarly invested in our nation's success and have similar views of our democracy. 

    Both sides are nowhere near each other in their goals and in their stewardship of this democracy.

    CPols, Jason, Alva please: PULL.HEAD.FROM.ASS.

      Have you considered professional help, Zappy? This self-medication thing isn't working for you.

      I think maybe your problem is that you're just too subtle by half . . . 

      . . . forget all your dainty liberalese sugar coating, and try, maybe, being just a little bit shrill?

      This isn't that mamba-pamby Square States site you matriculated from; there is no place here for all those polite niceties — Zap, you need to forget how you were brought up and just scream loudly at the top of your lungs (maybe you could pretend you’re still carrying a hard-on from that Bennett-Romanoff episode?) if you want to garner any attention. It worked for Fong!

        Bennet-Romanoff episode

        Ahh, memories…… Zappy will be happy to know that I voted against Thurston in that primary. (See, I'm not a Bennet shill after all.) Although in hindsight the entire 2010 nomination race is laughable. It was like a Democratic Leadership Council primary between two centrists. We would win either way.

        Your disdain and disinformation about S2 does not surprise. It's quite obvious most Democrats in this state are 1) afraid of their Republican counterparts, 2) sanguine about their perpetual inability to beat key Republicans like Coffman and Terrible Tom, and 3) perfectly ok with being bipartisan with and sharing failure with the Off-the-Charts Sociopaths who call themselves Republicans both here and in DC.  

        I would be ashamed of that. The Professional Democrats  around here are somehow proud of it

    I know everyone is perfectly happy to be a swing state, to be "purple", but the fact is that the swing is almost always rightward and the pigment is always tainted. And ignorance is bliss. Ho-hum.
