Former Obama Aides Set Table for Donald
Trump Foreign Trip Disaster

Breitbart Big Government, by Charlie Spiering

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 5/19/2017 11:08:37 PM

As President Donald Trump prepares to take off on his first trip overseas as president, former President Obama’s officials are already setting the narrative of failure. “Trump is substantively unprepared for high-stakes, 9-day foreign trip, but isn’t bringing ANY actual NSC experts (SDs or Ds) on AF1 to brief,” Colin Kahl, former deputy assistant to President Obama, wrote on Twitter. “No way. Seriously?” Susan Rice, Obama’s former national security adviser, snarked back. But the White House suggests that this kind of chatter is idle speculation from uninformed former aides out of power. “There will be a lot of NSC staff

The progressive anti-Trump media has already written the stories about his disastrous first foreign trip and how Trump embarrassed us all with his unpreparedness and outsized ego.

To Obama, every trip to any foreign country was a vacation. He was wined and dined and treated like a Persian Poohbah. That black man Community Organizer from da hood was never treated so good even in his wildest dreams. But, doing things, hard stuff, statesmanship? No Way! that was way, way over his pay grade. Nope. You could see him gnawing on his nicorette gum, yuking it up. Now, how can trump do any worse than that on a State visit. At least, PT won´t be bowing and kowtowing to these petty tyrants and potentates.

The rise and spread ofJV Team ISIS happened (coincidentally?) on the watch of BarackHussein. ISIS profusely thanks BarackHussein, his Enemedia enablers, and the Former Obama Aides. "Disaster" is apparently in the eye of the beholder.

Like #1 said at least we know President Trump won´t bow down to muslims, Chinese or Japanese and is capable of projecting American strength instead of weakness like obama!

Obama certainly set the world on fire. Not because of his so-called oratory skills but because of his arrogant know-it-all incompetence and his America hating staff. We are now living in a burning inferno that is ready to erupt at any moment. Save your advice, homies.

@13 And they were good trips for the hundreds of friends, family and hangers on that always went with them, staying in the most expensive rooms and prolly eating Wagyu beef for breakfast. We now get to see how he (Obola) still travels as a potentate but at least taxpayers aren´t paying, except for the secret service and I´d like for him to have to cover that himself with his ´self made´ million$.

Seems to me that I can recall that quite a few of the foreign leaders that Obozo "visited" came away commenting about how big a dolt Obozo really is. He simply didn´t make an impression on just about anyone except his own people. Now, I don´t think that is going to happen on President Trump. The whole world already knows that HE is ready to fight back. (Vis a vis missiles fired into Syria)

The collective swamp dwellers who consider President Trump a back woods uncouth lout are overlooking the self made business giant who sets the playing field to his advantage.
He does not need hundreds of aides smoothing his way to dealing with leaders of any kind( the reason the taking orders from Putin chant is so nothing.
The last thing America needs is another bowing puppet.
This first visit day did set the theme--America did not sink into the fake leaders swamp.

Hey I know it´s only been 24 hours, but so far the "disasters" have only included: a royal welcome, a 350 billion dollar deal, a commitent to form a Middle East military pact to fight Islamic terrorism, and a President of the United States who doesn´t bow to the waist to foreign leaders and who doesn´t bad mouth America.

Is it just me or does this sound more like "winning"? But yeah, I can see why this is interpreted as "disasters" to those Obamunists who did everything they possibly could to harm America.

"It is my opinion that many of the leaks coming out of the White House are fabricated lies made up by the #FakeNews media," Trump tweeted Sunday morning.

On Saturday night, Axios reported the news based on “three sources with direct knowledge.” Breitbart News has independently confirmed this reporting and that Trump has told others the same thing: that he plans to withdraw the U.S. from the agreement.

A series of rituals usually unfold on Capitol Hill when a candidate wins a special election and joins the House in the middle of a Congress. At that moment, they’re just a face in the crowd. But soon they’ll be a member of Congress. The rookies show up on Capitol Hill wide-eyed, not knowing their way to the restrooms let alone the path to the House floor. There’s usually a small reception for supporters and family members, featuring punch and finger foods in the bare-bones, stripped-down Capitol Hill office that belonged to their predecessor.

Hillary Clinton says that she "beat" Donald Trump—and Bernie Sanders—in a lengthy feature article by New York Magazine. "I beat both of them," she said, evidently referencing her popular vote win over Trump. While Clinton did defeat Sanders, who is not a Democrat, in the Democratic primary, she did not defeat Trump, who was inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States in January. In the story, Clinton discussed her post-election status as a member of the "Resistance" to Trump, but she also reflected on the 2016 campaign, which included a harder-than-expected fight against Sanders for the nomination.

WASHINGTON — Shortly after President Trump took office, Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the majority leader, met privately with his colleagues to discuss the Republican agenda. Repealing the Affordable Care Act was at the top, he said. But replacing it would be really hard. Mr. McConnell was right. The many meetings Republicans held to discuss a Senate health care bill have exposed deep fissures within the party that are almost as large as the differences between Republicans and Democrats. Elements of a bill that passed the House this month have divided Republicans. Mr. McConnell faces an increasingly onerous math problem.

New revelations have surfaced that the Obama administration abused intelligence during the election by launching a massive domestic-spy campaign that included snooping on Trump officials. The irony is mind-boggling: Targeting political opposition is long a technique of police states like Russia, which Team Obama has loudly condemned for allegedly using its own intelligence agencies to hack into our election. The revelations, as well as testimony this week from former Obama intel officials, show the extent to which the Obama administration politicized and weaponized intelligence against Americans. Thanks to Circa News, we now know the National Security Agency under President Barack Obama routinely violated

It’s pile-on time for America’s commercial airlines. The contempt people hold for them has long been severe, but following a raft of highly publicized incidents, resentment has hit a fever pitch. It started about a month ago, with the forced removal of a passenger onboard a United Express flight. This was followed by several more airlines-behaving-badly controversies, up to and including the death of Simon, a giant rabbit who perished after a London-to-Chicago United flight. Over and over we are reminded about the hellishness that is commercial flying. Enabled by cellphone cameras and the catalyst of social media, even the most
