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
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.
#7 Amen and a thousand likes. The difference is all of us here knew what a disaster his foreign policy was yet the sycophants in the leftist globalist msm wrote glowing reports of his success which was just pure bull excrement. 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.
The father of a Northern California man identified as the American citizen killed in the deadly truck ISIS terror attack in Barcelona, Spain, says his only consolation is that 42-year-old Jared Tucker likely died happy. His father, Dan Tucker, said he had not seen his son happier than he had been in the last year. He had “a magnetic personality and people loved him,” his dad said. He liked to fish, play golf and other sports, and he was deeply in love with his wife, his father said. Heidi Nunes, 40, of Walnut Creek, Calif., said she and her husband
It turns out media figures are much keener on Mitt Romney when he is criticizing Donald Trump than when he is running for president. CNN and MSNBC spent much of the day Friday touting the 2012 Republican nominee’s long-winded Facebook post urging President Trump to apologize for his “both sides” comments about Charlottesville, Va. “It was a very powerful piece,” NBC’s Chuck Todd said of the statement, while CNN’s John Berman called it “scathing” and “remarkable.” But media figures weren’t so willing to give Romney moral accolades back when he was just the guy who ran against Barack Obama in
Ever since the Charlottesville protests, the Left has ramped up their crusade against Confederate monuments and street named after Confederate generals. Using their logic, they should be calling for renaming the leftist mecca of New York, whose namesake is derived from a slave trader. The Daily Caller reminded everyone that New York is named after the former duke of York, James Stuart, who would eventually become King James II. James formed the Royal African Company (RAC), which eventually "became the largest single company involved in the slave trade," according to a 1999 UNESCO paper. The RAC traded an average of 5,000
A federal judge ordered Thursday that convicted Palestinian terrorist and Women´s March organizer Rasmea Odeh be deported from the United States, and her citizenship, revoked. Odeh was previously convicted in Israel for masterminding a pair of 1969 bombings that left two civilians dead and fourteen injured. She was later released as part of a prisoner exchange, and she moved to the United States. When she entered the United States, Odeh stated she had no criminal record. In 2013, she was indicted in federal court for immigration fraud, and in 2015, was sentenced to eighteen months in prison. The prison sentence
If you are only listening to corporate media presentations you would be left thinking the political strategy of Democrats against President Trump is working. Except you would be wrong. VERY wrong. (Photos) While the overwhelming majority of corporate media punditry and opinion broadcasts paint a picture of President Trump and the larger republican/deplorable party in retreat, the actual data, outside the influence of media, shows a completely divergent truth. The Democrats are in serious trouble; and it’s only getting worse. The latest self-admissions by the larger American electorate on Party Affiliation show the number of people identifying as Democrat has slipped
Juanita Broaddrick and Kathleen Willey, two women who accused former President Bill Clinton of sexually assaulting them are demanding his statue in South Dakota be destroyed. Juanita Broaddrick was very vocal about her disapproval of Hillary Clinton during the 2016 Presidential election. She hasn’t relented and now she is saying she would like to personally use a “sledgehammer” to destroy Bill Clinton’s statue. (Photo) Fox News reports: Two women who accused former President Bill Clinton of sexually assaulting them said it is time for his South Dakota statue to be destroyed.

In the wake of his departure from the White House, former chief strategist Steve Bannon is reportedly preparing for war — and is starting by meeting with the billionaire Mercer family. The White House announced Friday that Bannon had mutually agreed with White House Chief of Staff John Kelly to depart the West Wing. “White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and Steve Bannon have mutually agreed today would be Steve’s last day. We are grateful for his service and wish him the best,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement. It is unclear what Bannon’s
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D.-N.Y.) and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D.-N.Y.) announced yesterday that the federal government will spend up to $18,000,000 to buy Concord grape juice in an effort to increase the price that New York farmers can get for their grapes. In a letter to Agricultural Secretary Sonny Perdue urging him to have the government buy the grape juice, Sen. Schumer noted that there are “more than 280 growers with over 9,700 acres” of Concord grape vineyards in New York State. “I write to encourage the United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Agriculture Marketing Service (AMS) to utilize
Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., on Friday rejected the idea that he would soon join the Trump administration as energy secretary. Manchin told a town hall crowd at the West Virginia State Fair on Friday that he won´t leave to join President Trump´s cabinet, a Senate aide confirmed. Manchin is up for re-election in 2018. A Wall Street Journal reporter also tweeted his remarks and said he won cheers for saying he wouldn´t join the administration. (Photo/Tweet) A decision to join the Trump administration would have opened the door for the GOP to try again on Obamacare repeal since Republican
Philadelphia police arrested a man Friday in connection with a spray-painted message on the statue of former Mayor and Police Commissioner Frank Rizzo. Per Philly.com, the man arrested is 40-years-old. Charges are still pending, but he is expected to be charged with criminal mischief, institutional vandalism and possession of an instrument of crime for spray-painting the statue that stands outside the Municipal Services Building. The suspect defaced the statue Thursday night with the message “Black Power” after calls for its removal following the protests in Charlottesville, VA. Philly.com reports that the statue was egged Wednesday. Officers responded to a call Thursday
Nicholas Fuentes, an 18-year-old student who attended the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Va., this past weekend, said that he´s received death threats for months over his conservative viewpoints -- enough for him to decide it´s time to leave Boston University. Fuentes said he made the decision to abandon his Political Science degree a month ago after being constantly threatened over his conservative views. He said no longer felt safe on campus, and will not return for the fall semester. Still, despite the intensity of the backlash he´s received, he has absolutely “no regrets” about taking part in the
The National Institutes of Health is spending over $400,000 studying whether gender norms of masculinity and femininity lead LGBTQ individuals to drink too much. Trying to find the "meanings of intoxication" of sexual and gender minorities is the central question of a study that was awarded in late July. The project will "examine the extent to which gendered norms shape risky drinking practices for sexual and gender minority (SGM) young adults," according to the grant for the study. The grant states that alcohol is an "integral component of bars and clubs." "Alcohol has played a central role for SGM by facilitating
