Seriously, you can't make this crap up. The President of the United States, the leader of the free world did not know that not attending a military memorial due to rain would make him look bad? This is the guy that many people on this site and across the country claim is playing 3D chess because he is so intelligent.


Trump told aides he thought he looked “terrible” and blamed his chief of staff’s office, and Fuentes in particular, for not counseling him that skipping the cemetery visit would be a public-relations nightmare.


If this man is as intelligent as some people claim he is, and especially in the arena of publicity, how in the world did he not know this would look bad for him?

Telephone thread or not - he didn't go. The rain was blamed. For someone who 'worships' the troops, it was disrespectful.

i think this extract from the story says it all!
“He’s just a bull carrying his own china shop with him when­ever he travels the world,” presidential historian Douglas Brinkley said.

He's kind of a tool, always has been, always will be.

Doing a pretty decent job though.

Perhaps you should look closer.
Low visibility and security issues were what I read, perhaps you read something else?
Trump did attend a ceremony at a cemetery near paris in which 1500 US soldiers were buried.
Is any ceremony ok or just the one the media is crying about?

So it was only a security issue to Trump - no other leader?

Even Fox and Friends quoted the weather.

They're just looking to be outraged over anything related to Trump. The whole story is written off the backs of "anonymous sources". We know he still attended a military ceremony, he was recommended not to travel due to weather and was advised against shutting down Paris using the motorcade.

If he would've used the motorcade anyways and shut down major parts of Paris. We would be reading about how Trump has no courtesy and shut down Paris at short notice stranding millions of people living in and around the area.

Do you have a monthly quota of anti trump threads to fill?
You're like the little boy that cried wolf.
One day you'll get a real one and nobody will listen.


Nah, no quota but to me it is incredibly sad to see this site full of people who wallow in ignorance. People who actively choose to believe the line of BS coming from Trump and the right wing media. People like you and others treat Trump like he is some sort of God figure who can do no wrong. You defend literally everything he does without even thinking for a minute, "Hey, maybe I have bought into a line of bull#".

So, I'm just pointing out the hypocrisy, that's all.

He had a choice of going by motorcade and didn't. Every other leader made it to the ceremony, so what is your excuse now?

You know, you're right. That really does sum up the Trump presidency.

It's amazing clear where the ignorance is coming from. WaPo.

What label do you give to someone who regurgitates that nonsense repeatedly?

Security issues? This was long time planned trip. Are you saying that Trump's life was at risk in France, but Macron, Merkel and Trudeau were safe? Sounds like some skull duggery there!

I guess we lost the Vietnam War because our helicopters couldn't operate in the rain! HAHA

Marine One can operate in the rain and can even land on water, if necessary! Marine One has more bells and whistles than the space station! Can't operate at low visibility, my ass!
