“We’re America, Bitch!”


It looks like we have a new 2020 campaign slogan.

Jeffery Goldberg at The Atlantic:

The best distillation of the Trump Doctrine I heard, though, came from a senior White House official with direct access to the president and his thinking. I was talking to this person several weeks ago, and I said, by way of introduction, that I thought it might perhaps be too early to discern a definitive Trump Doctrine.

“No,” the official said. “There’s definitely a Trump Doctrine.”

“What is it?” I asked. Here is the answer I received:

“The Trump Doctrine is ‘We’re America, Bitch.’ That’s the Trump Doctrine.”

It struck me almost immediately that this was the most acute, and attitudinally honest, description of the manner in which members of Trump’s team, and Trump himself, understand their role in the world.

I asked this official to explain the idea. “Obama apologized to everyone for everything. He felt bad about everything.” President Trump, this official said, “doesn’t feel like he has to apologize for anything America does.” I later asked another senior official, one who rendered the doctrine not as “We’re America, Bitch” but as “We’re America, Bitches,” whether he was aware of the 2004 movie Team America: World Police, whose theme song was “America, Fuck Yeah!”

“Of course,” he said, laughing. “The president believes that we’re America, and people can take it or leave it.”


Works for me.

    G7 and a once in a lifetime summit in Singapore (which has shown the EU Trash and Little Boy Blue a thing or two about making sure negotiations have a positive vibe) have not kept the administration from dealing with really important stuff back in D.C. Heads must be spinning. I am sure the WP already had a editorial planned for tomorrow dissing PDJT in someway, shape or form about not being supportive. They are already pissed they could not blame him for the Capitals loss (although I would have loved to see sin city take the swamp down).

      Funny how that worked out. Who’d a thunk it? Seems almost unfair.

    • DeniseVB says:

      LOL. Already told my kids, mumsie and popsie are set for a comfortable life, and your special brother too, so you’ll never have to be “caregivers”, the bad news, you won’t get the inheritance either. So, I have no sympathy for any segment of society who hasn’t thought this through. 😉

      This is why it’s good to have a few firing neurons and a full time job. Otherwise you sit around all day thinking of shit like this.

    • elliesmom says:

      I grew up on a farm. We ate stuff. Farming isn’t for sissies. Hunters shoot animals they’ve never met before. Farmers kill animals they’ve raised since birth.

      • Myiq2xu™ says:

        Farmers kill animals they’ve raised since birth, and then they eat them. And while they’re eating them they talk about what a wonderful animal it was.

        Spent a few summers on the Ohio family farms as a tot through elementary school. Best time of my life. I remember having chicken friends, then eating them for dinner. Other best times of my youth, the Brooklyn fams, Coney Island and yelling. Good times ❤

        • elliesmom says:

          My life hasn’t been perfect, but I wouldn’t exchange growing up on the farm, barefoot and freckled by the sun, for anything. I have a real appreciation for what’s important and what’s not. I know where things come from and how much work goes into making them. I appreciate a city life exposes us to culture life on a farm just can’t offer, and I’m glad I got to experience that, too, but if I could only have one or the other, I’d pick my youth. We’re gearing up for having the grandkids for most of the summer. I don’t have cows and chickens, but I do live where there aren’t even any street lights. They want to pitch a tent in the backyard to camp out, and I think that will be fun, but I’m not sure they have any idea of what it means to be in the dark.

    Living in the TCH bubble make me forget that the “other” are truly insane!!

    “Mara Gay, an editorial board member for The New York Times, suggested Monday on MSNBC that the meeting between North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un and President Trump exists to distract from the Russia investigation.”

    Trump just tweeted Larry Kudlow suffered a heart attack. He’s in hospital in DC.

  21. SHV says:

    Big shit gonna happen:
    “North Korean television star newsreader Ri Chun Hee, 75, revealed the Kim Jong-un’s travel to the tiny Asian city-state of Singapore, 3,000 miles south of Pyongyang in a 7 minute message on Tuesday morning.”

    This morning was the first time North Koreans learned of the Trump-Kim summit

    North Korea’s state media has described the talks between Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump as part of a “changed era” – the secretive state’s first comment on the momentous summit. The KCNA news agency…

  22. DeniseVB says:

    Who is Larry Kudlow ?

  23. SHV says:

    Watching the Straights Times coverage….very small media coverage at the resort. I bet if the US media snowflakes bitch, they will be in for a big surprise.

  24. taw46 says:

    Well, there it is, the two of them together. Historical.

    It will be amazing if Kim can turn NK a 180 and he and his family survive.

    Seems as if the media memes have been sent out….”The meeting is all do to Kim…Trump is desperate to look good and will give away the store because he had his ass handed to him at the G7 (by a fake eyebrow Pussy)

  31. SHV says:

    “Rodman in his red MAGA hat just told Chris Cuomo that POTUS’s secretary just called him and said POTUS is very proud of him!!!

    Cuomo speechless.”

  32. taw46 says:

    China expert Michael Pillsbury on FNC pointing out Trump coerced Kim Jong Un to come to Singapore by tough sanctions and threats of military action. And now he is being extremely gracious to move him along. So, an encouraging beginning.

  33. SHV says:

    The resistance is trashing Dennis Rodman’s interview on CNN…Dennis was trending #2 on Twitter… now gone…shocking, I know.

  34. taw46 says:

    Good news.

  35. John Denney says:

    The Trump Doctrine is phrasely crudely but is completely in line with the Declaration of Independence, which phrased it more eruditely, firmly, with no apologies:

    “. . . a decent respect to the opinions
    of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which
    impel them to the separation.

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal,
    that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights,
    that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.
    That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men,
    deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,
    That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends,
    it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute
    new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing
    its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect
    their Safety and Happiness.”

    Still #NeverTrump.

  37. SHV says:

    Interesting: North Korean people first heard of Trump-Kim meeting today.
    “NORTH KOREA SNAP SHOT: We are hearing lots of music coming out of North Korea from across the Yalu River here in Dandong. Locals tell me this is rare and usually only on special occasions. Could it have anything to do with #TrumpKimSummit ?”

    A lot of people who didn’t give a shit about Otto Warmbier when Obama was POTUS or when Trump released him with the first few months of his presidency, are standing on his corpse know to slam Trump.
    Not only does that demonstrate how beneath contempt they are, it shows they don’t know that Otto’s parents said a denuclearization of North Korea would honor their son.
    These people are vie assholes.

    • taw46 says:

      They are. I have been watching that on twitter. They didn’t care about him, nor do they care about all those other prisoners. It’s just another way to try and discredit the President.
