Half-way through the week.
Closer to fall.
So far for Hump Day, the President has tweeted 12 times.
“Thank you to Wayne Allyn Root for the very nice words. “President Trump is the greatest President for Jews and for Israel in the history of the world, not just America, he is the best President for Israel in the history of the world…and the Jewish people in Israel love him….— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 21, 2019
….like he’s the King of Israel. They love him like he is the second coming of God…But American Jews don’t know him or like him. They don’t even know what they’re doing or saying anymore. It makes no sense! But that’s OK, if he keeps doing what he’s doing, he’s good for…..— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 21, 2019
He added during his compliant that the American Jewish person who votes for a Democrat is either stupid or disloyal.
Trump: And I think any Jewish people that vote for a Democrat, I think it shows either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty.

During a TV segment on Newsmax TV, Root, made the quote that the President tweeted out this morning causing both King of Israel, and #DisloyalToTrump to trend on Twitter.

As is expected defenders of President Trump, such as his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani explained that President Trump was referring to the Democratic Jewish American’s disloyalty to Israel.
Trump Accuses Jewish Democrats of ‘Great Disloyalty’ – The New York Times. This is routine for NYT and J St. But really disappointed a rep of ADL would feign confusion about @realDonaldTrump’s statement. POTUS is referring to disloyalty to Israel. https://t.co/XZ4775RyEP— Rudy Giuliani (@RudyGiuliani) August 21, 2019
The Jerusalem Post, notes that “The claim of dual loyalty has long been used as an antisemitic trope against Jews.”
For What It’s Worth.

Having dropped that toxic bomb about American Jews, Trump has returned to his morning routine of live-tweeting Fox & Friends. Note that the caption matches what Trump presents as a Judd quote.— Matthew Gertz (@MattGertz) August 21, 2019

Rep Tlaib wants to cut off aid to Israel. This is the new face the of Democrat Party? Read the AOC PLUS 3 statements on their hatred of Jews and Israel. Check out Rep. Omar (the great people of Minnesota won’t stand for this).— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 21, 2019
As of July 19th according to the Morning Consult state approval and disapproval tracker, the President was at 41 percent approve, while 55 disapprove.
The Fake News LameStream Media is doing everything possible the “create” a U.S. recession, even though the numbers & facts are working totally in the opposite direction. They would be willing to hurt many people, but that doesn’t matter to them. Our Economy is sooo strong, sorry!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 21, 2019
Doing great with China and other Trade Deals. The only problem we have is Jay Powell and the Fed. He’s like a golfer who can’t putt, has no touch. Big U.S. growth if he does the right thing, BIG CUT – but don’t count on him! So far he has called it wrong, and only let us down….— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 21, 2019
…..We are competing with many countries that have a far lower interest rate, and we should be lower than them. Yesterday, “highest Dollar in U.S.History.” No inflation. Wake up Federal Reserve. Such growth potential, almost like never before!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 21, 2019
He tweeted once in between the next two tweets, but they link to the Fed bad Trump Tariffs good tweets.
So Germany is paying Zero interest and is actually being paid to borrow money, while the U.S., a far stronger and more important credit, is paying interest and just stopped (I hope!) Quantitative Tightening. Strongest Dollar in History, very tough on exports. No Inflation!…..— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 21, 2019
….WHERE IS THE FEDERAL RESERVE?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 21, 2019
Tariffs = tax on the American Consumer.
I feel like we are in a rinse and repeat cycle from hell.
The economy is good.
BUT DAMN THE FED!
It’s like arguing with a teen who likes Bobby even though Bobby is dating her best friends cousins sister Sheila.
My proposal to the politically correct Automobile Companies would lower the average price of a car to consumers by more than $3000, while at the same time making the cars substantially safer. Engines would run smoother. Very little impact on the environment! Foolish executives!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 21, 2019
On Tuesday, the New York Times reported that according to four people familiar with the talks, last month Toyota, Fiat, Chrysler, and General Motors, had been summoned to the White House.
They had be asked there, as the article notes to discuss, their pact with California to keep to stricter rules on auto emissions, a rule the White House is planning to lessen.
From the article.
Mr. Trump, described by three people as enraged by California’s deal, has demanded that his staff members step up the pace to complete his plan. His proposal, however, is directly at odds with the wishes of many automakers. They fear that the aggressive rollbacks will spark a legal battle between California and the federal government that could upend their business by splitting the United States into two car markets, one with stricter emissions standards than the other.The New York Times.
Autonews notes that the White House plan would freeze, “standards at about 37 mpg and is being billed by Trump as a way for the auto industry to keep new-vehicle prices down while easing regulatory burdens.”
They also point out that President Trump’s “proposal would also rescind California’s longtime legal authority to impose its own emissions standards.”
I’m old enough to remember the old normal when States rights mattered, when it was frowned upon for a President to attempt to pick winners and losers, and when tweeting crazy was for the likes of ChER.
Ah good ole’ 2015….
Because I missed it.
As the husband and I were dashing off to continue our house buying quest, the President dropped two tweets of pure comedic gold, on top of being insane.
Denmark is a very special country with incredible people, but based on Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen’s comments, that she would have no interest in discussing the purchase of Greenland, I will be postponing our meeting scheduled in two weeks for another time….— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 20, 2019
….The Prime Minister was able to save a great deal of expense and effort for both the United States and Denmark by being so direct. I thank her for that and look forward to rescheduling sometime in the future!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 20, 2019
As the News Blender reported on Friday it had been reported that President Trump had expressed interest in purchasing Greenland from Denmark, it was received in jest, Denmark responded that Greenland was not for sale.
As I was grabbing my purse, the President in a fit decided to say fuck it then, because IDK, the owners of Greenland, though it should be noted, they do self-govern, was uninterested in having a serious discussion of the U.S. purchasing something they owned.
The Denmark PM, is not amused.
As Alien noted this morning, what started out as a joke, comedy gold, has now turned into a diplomatic crisis, with yet another ally offended by the current American President.
I’m gonna attempt to hold on tightly to the comedy gold, versus weeping into my coffee.
Donald Trump Canceled Trip to Denmark Because They Won't Sell Him Greenland… No Really https://t.co/tkxVx0KnFT— Snip🦈Bytes (@SnipBytes) August 21, 2019
But wait there is more apparently.
President Trump says the Denmark Prime Minister’s statement on his proposal to buy Greenland was “nasty” and says all she had to do was tell him no. Says he cancelled his visit because “you don’t talk to the United States that way.” pic.twitter.com/v2opnIqDrw— Eamon Javers (@EamonJavers) August 21, 2019
See? Now I’m all weepy.
