It's been a veritable week of weak from Delicate Donald. Starting on Saturday, Trump felt the need to explain on Twitter that he's a "very stable genius." Then there are these pathet ic excerpts from the WSJ interview:


TRUMP: They dislike me, the liberal media dislikes me. I mean I watch people – I was always the best at what I did, I was the – I was, you know, I went to the – I went to the Wharton School of Finance, did well. I went out, I – I started in Brooklyn, in a Brooklyn office with my father, I became one of the most successful real estate developers, one of the most successful business people. I created maybe the greatest brand. I then go into, in addition to that, part time, like five percent a week, I open up a television show. As you know, the Apprentice on many evenings was the number one show on all of television, a tremendous success. It went on for 12 years, a tremendous success. They wanted to sign me for another three years and I said, no, I can’t do that.

TRUMP: Just – and so – so I was successful, successful, successful. I was always the best athlete, people don’t know that. But I was successful at everything I ever did and then I run for president, first time – first time, not three times, not six times. I ran for President first time and lo and behold, I win. And then people say oh, is he a smart person? I’m smarter than all of them put together, but they can’t admit it. They had a bad year.


And who will soon forget the "greatest meeting ever" #show for which he claimed to have received flattering letters from journalists.


Trump said he received letters from anchors telling him "that was one of the greatest meetings they've ever witnessed."

"It got great reviews by everybody other than two networks who were phenomenal for about two hours," Trump said of the response the gathering garnered. "Then after that, they were called by their bosses who said, 'Oh, wait a minute.' Unfortunately, a lot of those anchors sent us letters saying that was one of the greatest meetings they've ever witnessed. And they were great."


I'd hate to be a person so under Don the Con's spell that I believed some bull# like that. Predictably, when the WH was asked to share some of these made up letters, they instead responded with a bunch of tweets that didn't back up Trump's claims. After all, he's got a habit of this — remember the Boy Scouts debacle?

And now, knowing that he's likely to be met by large protests, he's decided to cancel his trip to London to attend the opening of the new US Embassy. His character flaws are far too great for him to either tell the truth or I dunno, not say anything at all. So instead, he came up with a bull# excuse to tweet, hiding his insecurity behind bluster and falsely blaming Obama.



Of course, like many many things Dodgy Don says, it's a lie premised in bull#. The reality is that the move was made because it was determined even after security upgrades, that the previous location was too vulnerable to terrorist attack.

And the decision was made at the end of Bush 43's second term, not during Obama's presidency.

US embassy in London to relocate


Jim Pickard
October 2, 2008

The US embassy in London is to relocate from the glamorous environs of Mayfair to the more gritty “Nine Elms” quarter in Vauxhall, south of the river Thames.

Robert Tuttle, the US ambassador to the UK, said on Thursday afternoon that he had signed a conditional agreement with Ballymore, an Irish property developer, to acquire the new site. Nine Elms is not far from the headquarters of MI6, the secret intelligence service.

The US government has rejected other options including the renovation of the current embassy in Grosvenor Square, Mayfair, he said. Instead it had decided to move to a modern, secure and “environmentally sustainable” headquarters elsewhere.


With Move Across London, U.S. Embassy Can’t Please Everyone


Ten years ago, embassy officials insisted they would stay in Grosvenor Square until the lease ran out — in 2953 — and in 2007, Washington spent $15 million on security enhancements. But even after the upgrade, and the British government’s blocking off streets and pathways, the embassy, designed by Eero Saarinen in 1955, remained vulnerable to terrorist attacks.

State Department officials say the new embassy will be safer, big enough to accommodate the 1,000 employees now crammed into a building meant for 800, and equipped with all the modern communications and environmental features. And local officials are hopeful that the embassy will stimulate development in the area.

Moving to the new site, no matter how grim it may look now, makes perfect sense, American officials say. Renovating the existing building would have cost $730 million and still would not have provided state-of-the-art security, said Lydia Muniz, director of the Bureau of Overseas Building Operations at the State Department.

“It did not have the appropriate setback,” she said. “There are some things you just can’t modify.”

The new embassy is expected to cost about $1 billion, financed entirely by the sales of the existing embassy to Qatar’s Sovereign Wealth Fund and a nearby former Navy building to other property developers, Ms. Muniz said in an interview.

Going to London is a distraction and time consumer.
The President has a lot to do right here.

America First!

I wouldn`t go somewhere where mobs of people who don`t like will be gathering,that`s not a character flaw that's just common sense. I don`t remember Obama going to any KKK meetings,that`s not a character flaw on his part that's just common sense.i`m sure the embassy will open and do whatever it does just fine without trump being there. look at the bright side at least he isn`t wasting tax payer money by going to London to see the opening of an embassy.

What a narcissist. I can't believe people think that's a good thing to have in someone who's supposed to work for everyone else. A true leader puts everyone else before themselves, Trump is all about himself. He's not a true leader, if he were he'd be humble, he's not humble at all.

It's good news. He'd cost us a fortune in safeguarding him and we'd pay twice with this rumoured state visit later in the year.

Go Trump!! His magical genius helps the UK economy from across the seas. Hehehehe.

This visit was not a planned state visit and it's cancellation in no way means that the full state visit, that is in the planning stage, will not go ahead. No points to be scored here for you.

I see $1.2 Billion for a silly embassy, then read how NASA has to literally BEG for an additional $1 Billion, and I want to puke. The priorities of the United States were (are?) way out of whack.

The queen or one of the kids can run a curry shop on the ground floor and that would take care of the rent.

Wait, is this more fake news?

Didn’t become President first time round either...

He failed so bigly the first time I can only assume his memory is deteriorating because there’s no way anyone who had such a disastrous go of something would lose the memory of it like some sort of ineffectual passing moment eons ago.




But too vulnerable?
In London?

That is not remotely believable either.

Second biggest headline of the news this morning:

Trump has his scheduled regular visit to a hospital (health-check). Any news about this?

He's saying he canceled hist visit. That would imply that he had a planned visit to cancel in the first place. Or are you saying even that was a lie?

Maybe it's because Britain is a sh**hole.

And the new embassy is a sh**hole too.

HRH Trump doesn't do sh**holes.

Meh. Totes expected, it would have been a ridiculous farce and everyone would come out of it looking like a dick. As it is he just looks more of a tool and we can carry on being cold and damp. Status Quo assured.
