What shocks the press corps

Politico listed President Donald John "Trump's 10 wildest CPAC quotes."

Meme found at Reddit_The_Donald.

No. 10: "Right now we have people in Congress that hate our country. And you know that, and we can name every one of them if we want. They hate our country."

Of course. Why would they like a racist, genocidal, deplorable country that does not recognize all 57 genders?

No. 9: "Today I'm proud to announce that I will be very soon signing an executive requiring colleges and universities to support free speech if they want federal research dollars. If they want our dollars, and we give it to them by the billions, they've got to allow people like Hayden and many other great young people and old people to speak. Free speech."

He supports free speech. Worst Hitler ever. I think he flunked Fascism School.

No. 8 on General Mattis: "I said, 'We're going to give you a new nickname. Because Chaos is not a good nickname.' So we changed his name. We called him Mad Dog. But it wasn't working too well. Mad Dog wasn't working too well so what happened is I flew to Iraq, I wanted to meet the people on site because I learn more sometimes from soldiers what's going on than I do from generals. I do, I hate to say it. And I tell it to the generals all the time. But I didn't have to go there. I didn't have to go there. And I landed [at] this airport, the most incredible thing. We must have spent $3 billion building it. It's one of the reasons I don't want to leave Iraq so fast. I said, 'How do we leave this thing?'"

That's the real story. We spent $3 billion on an air base in Iraq when JFK is in sad shape.

No. 7: "We have a gentleman that likes raising interest rates in the Fed. We have a gentleman that loves quantitative tightening in the Fed. We have a gentleman that likes a very strong dollar in the Fed. ... We want a strong dollar but let's be reasonable, you understand. With all of that, we're doing great. Can you imagine if we left interest rates where they were? There's no inflation, essentially."

Well, that is just disgusting. How dare a billionaire think he knows more about money than an economist. What business school did Orange Man attend?



Well, that was 50 years ago before they invented the Internet.

No. 6: "Now Robert Mueller never received a vote, and neither did the person that appointed him. As you know the attorney general says, ‘I’m going to recuse myself.’ And I said, 'Why the hell didn't he tell me that before I put him in?'"

Now that's funny.

No. 5 on the witch hunt: "Unfortunately you put the wrong people in a couple of positions, and they leave people for a long time that should not be there and all of a sudden they're trying to take you out with bullshit."

He should not have said bullshit publicly because half of Washington would think he was talking about them.

No. 4 on Otto Warmbier: "I want to make a deal that works so let's not make it. But the one thing we have done is we have no testing, no rockets going up, no missiles going up. No nuclear testing. We got our great people back. We got our great, great people, and that includes our beautiful, beautiful Otto. Otto Warmbier whose parents I've gotten to know, who's incredible. And I'm in such a horrible position because in one way I have to negotiate. The other way, I love Mr. and Mrs. Warmbier. And I love Otto. And it's a very, very delicate balance. He was a special young man. And to see what happened was so bad."

Sad that some people are trying to use a dead man to stop the president from making peace.

No. 3: " If you tell a joke, if you're sarcastic, if you're having fun with the audience, if you're on live television with millions of people and 25,000 people in an arena and if you say something like, 'Russia, please, if you can, get us Hillary Clinton's emails. Please, Russia, please. Please get us the emails. Please.'"

“So everybody is having a good time, I’m laughing, we’re all having fun. Then that fake CNN and others say, ‘He asked Russia to go get the emails.' Horrible."

The press corps has no sense of humor.

No common sense.

No sense at all.

No. 2: "I should have saved the Pocahontas thing for another year. I’ve destroyed her political career and I won’t get a chance to run against her and I would have loved that."

An aside: the Fauxcahontas thing never caught on in the mainstream for the same reason Faux News never caught on as a tag for Fox News. Faux is pronounced foe, and that destroys the point the person tried to make.

No. 1: "Mr. President — President Xi of China, we have a great relationship, I say, 'How is it possible that you got away with this for so long?' And he said, 'Because nobody ever asked us to change.' It’s true."

"And they said to me, 'we expected that somebody would call and say you cannot do that. Nobody called so we left it.' And I don't blame them. We should have been doing the same thing to them. But we didn't."

The only thing wild about the last quote — the Number One quote — is that it showed how ignorant of business the people in Washington are.

And yet they want to regulate it.


  1. That last comment can be applied to a lot of things other than business. Even people in health care can't manage it properly. How do folks think the government is going to do better?

    1. Problem is Doc people like AOC, Booficus
      Spartacus, Round heel Harris and the like believe in the concept of"this time it will work" to roughly quote Don.. in other terms the Coyote will always return to the Rocket skates...
      though I'm not one to believe all
      Dems are going the "Make America Venezulea Again.."

  2. Of course they left out the context of number 8. It was the fact that we have spent 7 trillion dollars in Iraq and they had to turn the lights off at the airport in order to land in safety. That is why we have to leave. Not the cost of the airport.

    I wonder how many other “outrageous” quotes are reported out of context. probably all 10.

  3. Alinsky’s Rule 5: Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. Keef Richards couldn’t riff like Mr. T when it came to that rule yesterday. Synopsis: LibCommies are evil, they hate the country, and their ideas absolutely suck. Works for me.

  4. What media bias? I did a Duck Duck Go search about the Iraq incident I commented on above as I hadn’t heard the speech but read something about the context.

    I searched on “Trump CPAC Iraq airport”.

    The top hits were all hit job articles on the speech - fact checking or attacking. Amazing. Not. I can only imagine the results being more skewed if I used the despicable Google.

    1. That’s a GOOD thing, Schlongy! It means the speech touched a raw nerve. Plante always says the media’s greatest power is the power to ignore. It ain’t gettin ignored. Great. Super!

  5. Politico is stealing Trump's intellectual property to make money. It has none of its own worth defending. Sometimes I believe the media really want DT to win in 20, then refuse to leave in 24. What will they do without him? Who of their own pathetic crew will keep them affloat in clicks? Trump is the greatest circus master they have ever seen, packing their tents with some new and exciting act every 24 hr cycle. What do they have on tap? The clown car in split screen? Getting old fast.
    Trump was honest and funny at CPAC. His comments on Otto sounded like they had been lifted from from King Lear, yet they were truly his and from deep within.

  6. Don,

    Better mind your P's and Q's: Clarice is reading here!! Yup, you've been quoted by one of the best:


  7. The uniparty hogs use the claim that they stand for the "rule of law".

    The unipartu hogs, all divisions thereof, use the "rule of law" to rule over those they consider their rightful subjects, servants, slaves, lackies, flunkies, lesser creatures, useful idiots, etc.

    The law is simply what you must not do or what you must do.

    The uniparty hogs want all to be subject to the laws of what you must do, as defined by the uniparty rulings hogs. The uniparty hogs use the laws of what you must not do to impose their preferred laws of what you must do.

    MAGA vastly chooses the laws that are what you must not do. Constitutional Republic laws. Constituional Republic laws to protect our Liberty. Our Liberty the uniparty hogs crave to eliminate.

    MAGA will deny the uniparty hogs their craving.

    MAGA is inherent Liberty.

    MAGA is the envy of all others the ruling hogs of the world have dominated under their fat, nasty hog ass crushing.

    And the uniparty hogs, all divisions, want to sit their fat hog ass upon all Americans.

    MAGA denies them their craving.

    MAGA is American Constitutional Republic.

    MAGA is all Americans not of the uniparty hog cabals.

    1. "And they said to me, 'we expected that somebody would call and say you cannot do that. Nobody called so we left it.'"

      They paid good money for all those politicians. They finally met one who wasn't for $ale.

  8. What I like best about our President is he means what he says, unlike the average American politician who says only whatever is needed to get elected when that time rolls around.

  9. MAGA - smile.
    Pres. Trump - smile.
    Fake News - smile, but sadly.
    MAGA - smile.
