The Ugly American should have done everybody a favor by not going.

Word has it that he really doesn't want to go, for two reasons: he has to share the stage, and he's aware how intensely he is disdained by his counterparts.

He'll b'é in a bad mood for a bit, and Trump in a bad mood is dangerous.

Brace for incoming demented tweets.

Love the picture, even his wife looks like she doesnt understand the man she married!

Rodney Dangerfield arrives.

Hey, come on now - Rodney had twice as much class as this clown....

From Mattis’ resignation letter:

We must do everything we can to advance an international order that is most conducive to our security, prosperity and values and we are strengthened in this effort by solidarity of our alliances.

Because you have the right to have a Secretary of Defense whose views are better aligned with yours on these and other subjects, I believe it is right for me to step down from my position.

The president earlier in the day made light of a sharp drop in the financial markets in reaction to his latest trade actions, with a tongue-in-cheek tweet speculating that the Dow's plunge could be tied to the departure of a lower-tier candidate in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination.

And this is why he will be voted out, come 2020.

Not even his bigoted followers will support him for causing an economic disaster.

More like a G1 and G6 meeting with Trump mostly out on a limp and upset with the Danes won't sell Greenland. PM Bozo won't sell the NHS. Germany won't built enough tanks. The Chinese trade poo sticking to his shoes. The collapse of Ivanka Chinese business. American recession on the horizon.

I am waiting to see him in handcuffs. One year, four months, and 27 days to go.

What a plo*nker

Don’t even bet on that. Lol

I wouldn't bet on it either....

I bet they'll follow him as he tanks our economy, ruins our alliances, tries to silence a free press, starts a war with Iran, praises Neo Nazis and white supremacists, and further divides America for pure political reasons.

They'll follow him as he takes our country right down the toilet - which is exactly what Putin directed him to do...

Trump orders American companies to leave China. Dow falls 600 points. Corporate America protests. Wants freedom.

“I'm the President of the United States of America. I'm not the president of the world."

Not presidential at all, wouldn’t trust him to run a school tuck shop.

reciprocal trade or America First? He can't have both

3 ( +3 / -0 )

Well, he's not actually going it alone....

Vladimir Putin is sitting squarely on his shoulder, whispering in his ear and pulling his strings....

Trump claims he can devalue the dollar any time he likes?

2 ( +3 / -1 )

He certainly is looking angry lately. And his one-on-ones at the G7 will only be met with further disdain by five of the other six leaders. Boris is a lost cause.

Demented G1-USA will tread the boards of the world stage in Biarritz in all his glory, donned out in his "New Clothes" to the delight and acclaim of his squealing acolytes. Meanwhile, G6 hereby order him to STFU.

Some one has been binge watching MSNBC again.

Nah, Putin and Donnie prefer Russia Today....

I doubt 60 million plus American citizens are bigoted; besides, most of America is getting sick of the phantom of white supremacy let out at every chance by the real bigots.

Talk about binge watching - someone's been watching too much Tucker "its a hoax" Carlson...he sure needs another "vacation"....

Anyway, I think the current dip in the market is a necessary evil to be put up with in order to tame China. Once the medicine goes down and is digested things will get better and people will love Trump even more--except the true bigots hiding in progressive clothing.

Love Trump even more? The Trumpers' rhetoric sounds more and more like North Korea....

Rodney Dangerfield arrives.

Are we sure that some of Trump's supporters are not working for China or Russia? They seem to want to follow Trump to the ruination of the US. They are more interested in Trump than their own nation.

Trump's the man. We know it. They know it.

0 ( +1 / -1 )

Donnie's a Dimwit. We know it. They know it. Everyone knows it.... Just ask Ann Coulter....

No, you just think it. Everyone else knows he's the man. Just ask Melania.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Just ask Melania.

Does she speak anymore. You hear her about as often as the Trump son Baron.

Right, as you do not binge watch Fox News and listen to the druggie Limbaugh.

BTW, your politics and your spelling are about equal.

Not with the current selection of dem candidates he won't.

Not even his bigoted followers will support him for causing an economic disaster.

An open message to Mr Trump.

If Google, facebook etc are being hounded around the world, where would they go? A: Back to USA, don't you want those high paying jobs back in the good ole?

BTW, don't attack the Feds, they're holding back on interest rate cuts because YOUR tariffs are doing a good job with the trade war already.

Liberals have very high hopes and vote him out with what? What policy? The radical socialism that liberals want will not get any of these socialists into the WH.

Not even his bigoted followers will support him for causing an economic disaster.

Don’t even bet on that. Lol
