Is Trump alright?

Because who would say something to soldiers at a front..

U.S. President Donald Trump gave a bullish Thanksgiving address to troops overseas on Thursday, hailing progress in Afghanistan and against ISIS, and telling them they were fighting for “something real,” including a stock market at record highs and his promised “big, beautiful fat tax cuts.”


Or this:


Trump told the troops they could look forward at home to the benefits of “big, beautiful fat tax cuts,” a stock market at record highs, jobs and economic growth.
“We’re doing well at home, the economy is doing great,” Trump said. “You’re fighting for something real, you’re fighting for something good.”


or this little gem:


Trump said he had told the troops overseas the country was “doing great,” thanks to his cuts in “regulation and all the waste and all the abuse.”


What kind of military personal would feel obliged to fight for Big Bu$ine$$?
If I were a soldier hearing that live, I would turn around to my fellows, them looking as wide-eyed as me, and ask, what this fat man does think what we were doing there?!

This is a huge sh*tshow of self-adulating, nothing else.. Guys, usually I abstain from Trumps regional comedy, but sometimes he just pushes some buttons for me - like disrespecting soldiers fighting for "him". And this is disrespect!

Oldtimer, your hearing aids are not working and you left your reading glasses on the porch again. /s

You DO remember we told you to not type on that keyboard before checking the sources, righto?

Edit: you don't like your military personel, correct? Bc otherwise you would have at least checked the source before trumping..

Edit2: I am not liberal, at least not in the US-american style. And Mrs Clinton was the wrong person to vote for, too. But you still got a worse deal out of it.

I'm guessing many people hear that as confirmation of healthy economy. People being reassured that their country is strong, and will continue to get stronger.

John Steinbeck wrote :

Socialism never took root in America because the poor see themselves not as an exploited proletariat but as temporarily embarrassed millionaires.

I think this is often where people of other nations fail to understand much of what happens in the USA and the peoples attitudes. People relate and identify with the rich and the big corporations- tell them those will be protected, they can feel that they will be protected (as soon as they get there, could be any time now....)

LOl! I know, it sounds crazy. A whole lot of people are still holding on to that idea that anyone can become a millionaire over night, with just the right idea or with hard work. But it gives a sense of security and power over their own destiny. I can do it! feeling. Take that away and the world seems much more bleak and scary. "I alone" becomes powerless and we've been raised to feel deep in our gut that following the crowd, being part of a herd, is bad. I think we've been brainwashed by TPTB so that we don't band together as a herd and run them down.

What a beautiful speech , probably the most beautiful speech ever given by a president ... ever.
The troops should be proud they are fighting for the Presidents “big, beautiful fat cat tax cuts".


The President pulls the pin , his jaw flaps and nonsense flows freely ... beautiful.

The economy is a major part of the country.
Why is it a bad thing to fight to keep people fed and employed??

Big business blah blah blah....thats BS.

What brand is your car,phone,fridge,stove etc etc.
Its a big corporate name isn't it??
You use them right and you agree you use them??

Stop using those things before being offended by something like this and complaining about big business.


People fight for resources and economic stability.
I am more offended by the rose colored glasses and hypocrisy.

You would send out soldiers to fight for your right to Black Friday?

Do you think they would follow you? Because "HEY, my leader wants to have a black friday, and unless I do not die or get severly injured, my family might have enough money to buy some new iPhone or stuff these days because I am here in Afghanistan or somewhere else in the world" is good enough for a soldier?

Wow.

People have fought for resources and territory for centuries.
Be offended all you want...I call it as I see it.

I am not saying it is right.

Again,for all the big business BS,turn off your phones and stop driving if you hate big business so much.

So you need rights to shop now??
Ok??

Remember the big corporate label when shopping on black Friday and remember your willingness to use and purchase them,as is your right.
Now complain,which again...is your right.

A good prosperous country has a good prosperous economy.

Well, if we need our soldiers to continuously fight and die to have a "prosperous economy", then I really don't think we're a "good prosperous country"

I am sure that opinion would change if there were no Black Friday and there was nothing to buy or sell.
People would more than likely say "war helps our economy"

Its a dysfunctional cycle.
Again...I never said it was right.
