Trump Ramps Up the Narcissism in an Appalling Speech


His visit to the CIA was supposed to reassure the intelligence community. Boy did that backfire.

Entire Speech www.msn.com...

Trump just can't do anything right. Or maybe that’s by design.


Seemingly trying to make up for his many CIA insults he gallivants down to Langley, Virginia, CIA headquarters, and gives a lousy speech that in the end pours gasoline on the fire he already lit


He started okay with platitudinal niceties that said he supported the CIA.




That’s how the speech began, but before long, he turned to what remain his favorite topics: himself and the “dishonest media.
He complained that while, as far as he could tell, 1 million to 1.5 million people filled the National Mall to watch his inaugural address, the media reported that just 200,000 turned out for the event. The media, of course, was reporting the estimates from the National Park Service, which does this sort of thing professionally. The media also later reported that the NPS was ordered to stop tweeting after it retweeted comments about the size of the inaugural crowd. It’s not hard to wonder what CIA analysts in the audience made of this rant—and whether they feared that their own disagreeable estimates might meet the same censure.

Trump then rambled—as if this were a campaign rally instead of a morale-boosting speech in front of the agency’s most sacred spot—about how smart he is (citing as proof the fact that a brilliant uncle taught at MIT) and about how he’s been on the cover of Time magazine more often than anybody. (In fact, the title is held by Richard Nixon, which says something about what gets a president on a lot Time magazine covers.)




He also said things that must have baffled many of the 300 CIA employees who gathered for the visit, came in on a day off to see their new boss. He repeated the line, which he’d uttered many times during the campaign, that we should have “taken the oil” in Iraq (a notion that is politically daft, economically unnecessary, and militarily all-but-impossible) and that maybe we’ll have the opportunity to do so now. He also said that he suspected most of the people in the room voted for him in the election—a comment that, whether true or not, is appallingly inappropriate to make to intelligence analysts, who pride themselves on their independence and fear political encroachment above all else.


a Vintage Trump speech set to set things right with the CIA likely exploded like a bomb with the CIA people

If it wasn't for the position he holds, I'd be laughing too.

But, decisions he makes are going to affect me.

Definitely fake. I've learned to hover over the "LINK" in the O.P., look at the URL and not even click, if it says "slate.com..." and a few others. A great time saver!

That being said, it's guaranteed that Donald Trump WILL "flub" a speech every now and then. He'll also make some decisions that, in hindsight, were not the right ones. That's what imperfect humans and leaders do. Common sense stuff.. duh.

Because Trump supporters don't care about reality. If anyone attacks their dear leader it's fake news. Then they go off and read Breitbart and Infowars.

While at Langley, he was exchanged for a CIA body double. A perfect copy, but a total CIA plant, working for who exactly, that, remains a mystery. The real Donald was captured and is being waterboarded with Mountain Dew and getting his Ensure enema at meal times. Me tin hat is on and at a jaunty angle. There is a saucy bit up ahead!
