THe meeting was held at the UN it was for the staff who accommodated him during this past week while he was there.
A thank you. They expected a quick thanks and maybe a lunch. They got this rant instead.
It was actually more specific than that I think.
He was there to thank and congratulate one of his staffers in particular who was either leaving for another post or he was thanking her for a job well
done - I've forgotten which. I remember it was a female staffer and he congratulated her a few times by name in the middle of his impeachment rant,
which I thought was classic Trump.
BTW - his personal communication style is absurd, but he's also entertaining as hell at times, and you have to admit he's gotten a few really good
things done for the country - in spite of himself.
I was not a Trump fan in the beginning, but I've grown to appreciate him since he's taken office in 2017 - although I'm still not a fan. But if the
accusations are true, his goose is cooked. Even some of the most rabid die-hard Trump fans that I know personally, are having a very hard time with
this - assuming it's true. Time will tell...I think.
I'm on the run right now with no access to the story I bookmarked, but I'll post a link to the story when I get back home in about an hour.
In the meantime, both sides are behaving like dangerous spoiled brats - metaphorically sticking their fingers in their ears and saying "Na Na Na Na"
over & over when the other's side's case is made. It's a joke and certainly no way to run a railroad...
Either way, this ends in a train wreck for the entire country in my opinion.
My ideas for fixing the real core problems that cause this in the first place are:
Step 1 - We need to vote out all the asshats in Congress. Especially the long-serving morons that forgot what it means to have to work for a living,
care for a family or even go to the supermarket.
Step 2 - Term limits. After 2 terms you cannot run or be elected in the following term. If they're really good at representing the interests of
their constituents *and* protecting this constitution and democracy, they can run again only after getting a real job for at least 2 years and they
would be required by law to observe *strict* fundraising limits during their "off years".
But first off, it's on us to vote out the asshats and to make sure a new & better term limits law is passed. It's on us.
I know, I know - it will never happen. But a girl can dream, can't she?
