Donald Trump must really hate the rain - Bent Corner

Donald Trump must really hate the rain

Just when I think my opinion of Donald Trump can not get any worse, he does something to drive it even lower into the ground than it was before.

From ABC News:

President Donald Trump canceled a planned visit Saturday to a cemetery for Americans killed in World War I, the White House citing bad weather that grounded his helicopter.

Trump had been scheduled to lay a wreath and observe a moment of silence at the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery and Memorial, located adjacent to Belleau Wood and about 60 miles (100 kilometers) northeast of Paris.

So how bad was the “bad weather”?

Also from ABC News:

The Secret Service determines when it’s safe to fly Marine One, the president’s helicopter. Paris was covered in clouds with drizzling rain through most of Saturday.

Are we to pretend Marine One cannot fly when it’s cloudy and drizzling?

So we’re supposed to believe Marine One, laden with all sorts of high-tech avionics not found in any other helicopter in the world, cannot fly when it’s cloudy and drizzling? Nope, I refuse to believe that. Marine One is a beast. Even if the weather was truly bad, high winds and severe rain, Trump could have gone to the cemetery for dead American Marines killed serving our country in a motorcade.

Attending in Trump’s place were White House chief of staff John Kelly, a retired Marine general and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Marine Gen. Joe Dunford.

If the weather at the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery and Memorial was so bad (it wasn’t), how did Kelly and Dunford get there, an amphibious landing vehicle? A submarine?

I feel like Donald Trump wants me to hate him

I’m not proud of the fact that I despise our Commander-in-Chief. I’m really not. I try to find likeable characteristics in everyone, even in presidents I did not vote for. Some people make me try a lot harder than others to like them. With Trump, it’s impossible. No matter how hard I try, I cannot find anything about the man I admire or respect, let alone like. He cancels his trip to an American cemetery and memorial because of “severe weather” even though he knew there would be photographic evidence proving he’s a liar. He just doesn’t care.

Fake news!
The press is the enemy of the people!

When I cast my vote for president in 2016, I knew whoever won was going to be a bad president. I failed to realize it was going to be this bad. Donald Trump is the worst president in my lifetime. Worse than Jimmy Carter. Worse than Richard Nixon. Worse than George W. Bush.

Jimmy Buffett would make a better president than Trump, and I’ve gone on record that I hate Jimmy Buffett.
