‘Art of the moron’: GOP strategist Rick Wilson tears Trump’s North Korea diplomacy to pieces

Published

on

Republican strategist Rick Wilson has written a blistering takedown of President Donald Trump’s trip to North Korea, which he described as “an inconsequential photo-op with a hopped-up fatboy dictator.”

In a Daily Beast column titled “Art of the Moron,” Wilson says it was absurd for Trump to tout a joint statement signed by the United States and North Korea that didn’t mention any way to verify that North Korea is dismantling its nuclear weapons program.

“Russia, Iran, Syria, and other bad actors want to thank you, Mr. President,” he writes. “You sent the clearest of signals that sanctions regimes, inspections, and verified denuclearization are no longer relevant in our brave new era of nationalist populist strongmen and Michael Bay knockoff videos.”

He went on to say that autocrats all over the world now know that they just have to “kiss your ample ass long enough and shower you with enough superficial praise and they can play you like the trifling intellectual lightweight you most certainly are.”

Wilson also predicts that Trump will pay dearly for spiking the football on North Korea once the regime starts lobbing threats at the U.S. and its allies again.

“You’ve set your fans up for a spectacular comedown when North Korea does what it always does,” he writes.

“It is unheard of for the Department’s top leaders to overrule line prosecutors, who are following established policies, in order to give preferential treatment to a close associate of the President, as Attorney General Barr did in the Stone case,” wrote the former Justice Department attorneys in their Sunday letter. “It is even more outrageous for the Attorney General to intervene as he did here — after the President publicly condemned the sentencing recommendation that line prosecutors had already filed in court.”

Air Force One in flight.

Another oops moment happened for President Donald Trump's campaign manager stole George W. Bush's photo from the Daytona 500 in 2004.

Tweeting Sunday, Brad Parscale proclaimed, "[email protected] won the #Daytona500 before the race even started."

Except, it wasn't him. As many people pointed out, the image was from 16 years ago by photographer Jonathan Ferrey, CNN reported. Parscale was forced to delete it and tweet it out again with an underwhelming photo.

‘America — y’all gotta wake up’: MSNBC panel cracks up laughing at Trump bizarre claims about the border wall

Published

on

Last month, President Donald Trump's border wall collapsed due to weather problems. A new decision was made that in certain areas, Trump's wall must be a kind of "gate" that will remain open during months known for heavy flooding.

After weeks of ignoring the news, Trump finally found something to say about the catastrophe during a press conference where he rambled about different ways that people have tried to get drugs over the wall using a sling-shot.
