The Orange Blob

I am sure anyone with a modicum of intelligence would see that he did not want to get his syrup (cockney slang for wig) wet and the fake tan would start to run. No respect for anybody but himself the draft Dodger. Reminds me of the so called American hero John I think I will stay here in California and make few films Wayne. No class not like James Stewart, Clark Gable et al. Sums up the US today I am afraid but as they say about the recent mass shooting ' here's to the next time'.

I think you'll find he doesn't even have a plan A, never mind a plan B...

The Plan

The Trumpster, like in the Southwest Airlines TV commercial, just wanted to get away...

The Excuse

Apparently his bone spurs were playing up.
Sounds like a Sarah Huckster excuse, maybe there will be a WH video to show proof...

Those that attended were not heads of state
So how does that square with the job descriptions of Macron & Merkel?

Perhaps it is time to again float the Trump aerostat--the one with him in his nappy and holding his mobile.

Macron is President, Merkel isn't, and to some only PRESIDENTS count.

On this day of remembering military sacrifice, the DOD just announced that operation to provide military support at the US/Mexican border has been renamed. The Trump administration originally called it “Operation Faithful Patriot” but it is now called simply "Operation Border Support".

Trump's interest in the caravan 'invasion' has apparently waned MSNBC

A leaked White house memo revealed plans to gradually de-escalate the border issue by continuous changing of the name on a weekly basis to include:

Operation Rocks Painted White
Operation Sure Fooled Them Hick Voters
Operation We Could Be Fighting Fires in California
Operation Thanksgiving Dinner From a Bag
Operation What is the Nuclear Football for $200 Please Alex?

Different venues ....

Macron and Merkel went to Compiègne to participate in a joint French/German ceremony at the site of both Germany's surrender to France at the end of the First World War, and France's surrender to Nazi Germany early in the Second World War.

Trudeau went to Vimy to visit the Canadian Vimy Ridge War Memorial, at the site of a major battle involving great loss of life for Canadian troops.

All three heads of state managed to arrive at their chosen sites in order to partake in ceremonies despite bad weather.

At Aisne-Marne American Cemetery however, instead of Trump, we had White House chief of staff, retired Marine Gen. John Kelly, and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Marine Gen. Joe Dunford. The cemetery is the final resting place of US Marine dead from the Battle of the Belleau Wood, a major battle that stopped the final German offensive of 1918 and one of the relatively few major battles involving US forces in the First World War. (In other words, this ceremony was a big deal.)

My point is that security for a Trump motorcade might have been more burdensome than that for Kelly and Dunford, since they are not heads of state, but that one way or another all three other heads of state, for France, Germany, and Canada, along with Kelly and Dunford, did make their scheduled appearances. I don't care if they variously flew, used a motorcade, hitched a ride in the back of a rusty Citroen Type H hauling fresh garlic, or even had to walk; they all showed up!

This, honoring our national war dead, is one of those things that there really is no excuse for missing, especially on the hundredth anniversary of the Armistice.

We have been treated to the spectacle of Trump, this self-described extremely "militaristic" president, flying to France, having a spat with Macron via twitter just as he was landing, and then sitting back there in Paris while his three fellow heads of state were all out there in the rain carrying out their appointed duties. Okay, to give the man his due he did tweet birthday congratulations to the US Marine Corps, but that's a pretty sorry substitute for showing up at the site of one of their major battles to honor their dead, our dead.

Teach this man how to work an umbrella, and tell him to harden the f*ck up. (Where is Chopper Read when you need him?)

Yep. DT is probably unaware of how bad a look this is.
I am pretty sure that General Kelly and General Dunford would have had to be either in traction in a hospital, or near death's door, to have missed this.
Belleau Wood is a pretty big deal for the Marines.
Semper Fi.
And appropriate to today's date and remembrance:
Solum mortui finem belli viderunt
(
Only the dead have seen the end of war )

Trump could never get the hang of the "open and close" mechanism. So he stayed inside. Figured the roof would work okay.

Neither could the previous anointed One, Obama, so he simply had a Marine hold his. Looks a lot more exalted that way, and an opportunity for reversal of slavery.

Oooh - yet more mindless Trump-bashing by the usual lynch mob - right here on JB too!!

Back here on Planet Earth, Trump is widely noted as a true ambassador, who seeks to cause minimal inconvenience during his travels. There were solid operational reasons for him not to follow the primary plan today. But naturally, liberals resumed their cliche'd, brain-dead squarking.

The irony's clearly beyond their slender grasp: Trump's a staunch and consistent supporter of our wonderful men and women in the armed forces, and is respected almost universally across their ranks. Contrast this with Obama, who treated them with overt contempt, and united all branches in their antipathy towards him. (And to interrupt facts with my own recollections - the few times Obama wasn't pouring scorn on the troops he claimed to command, he was applauding violence against our brave police officers. What a nauseating, vile legacy of hatred.)

No surprise that the usual propaganda outlets found themselves yet another way to bash Trump. Does surprise me that liberals continue to lap this up, present what they were just spoon-fed as if it was their own opinion, and continue demanding that the rule of law be overthrown, and democracy itself be abolished. Poignant to note, on this day above all, that armed vigilance against assaults upon liberty by its sworn enemies - domestic and foreign - has never been more important.

But only from afar, 2 years into his Presidency yet he still hasn’t managed to find time in his very busy schedule to visit his troops deployed to any war zones.

" ... Trump is widely noted as a true ambassador ... " how widely and by whom? The guy first did a no-show, and then showed up late for the next ceremony in Paris. I am sure that he did not mind that, but many other people do seem to mind. Not you, Crepello, and the rest of that 42% of us who probably should have paid more attention in school, but you might not represent as much of our country as you think that you do. (I like Cheetos, but I wouldn't want to eat a whole bag of them at once.)

Obama ... did you ever get straight on his birth certificate? And how about those 30,000 e-mails of Hillary's? Yes, yes ....

Is that some kind of joke? Any POTUS does a great deal of discomfitting when he travels. There is simply a wide swath that is cut.

I thought that AI was improving the quality of bot posts. I guess not...

What a crock, LOL! Tell this to the folks that live in Bedminster NJ or Palm Beach FL who absolutely hate to see him coming. He is more widely noted as an arrogant, self-serving prick, who doesn't care about anybody's inconvenience when traveling. Trump is all about Trump and that's it!

Obamalove? Simply discrediting your #FAKENEWS/#ALTFACT statement that Obama couldn’t open an umbrella.

As for your outrage over Obama having someone holding an umbrella for him...
