Shut up, Donald Trump is what Trump’s own government officials are telling the world. U.S. government officials, many appointed by Donald Trump himself, are telling the world to ignore Trump’s tweets. H.R. McMaster told those attending that Munich Security Conference to ignore Trump. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has also been telling the world that never mind what Trump says, the U.S. is staying the course with its diplomacy, especially in Europe and with North Korea.

The people that speak for the U.S. are telling the world that Donald Trump does not speak for the country. They have emasculated Trump and he has yet to understand that.

Let that sink in for a moment, Trump ran on the notion that he was “Going to Make America Great Again.” Instead, what the world is being led to understand is that never mind what Trump says, the real power lies with the bureaucracy, many of which were appointed by Trump. Trump, according to the world narrative is to be ignored as nothing more than a bumbling idiot tweeting through his smart phone.

Words are cheap, so let me skip boring you with words for today and, instead, share an illustration that I believe puts everything into perspective.

So much for the promise of greatness and prosperity Donald Trump promised those that voted for him. Instead, what they got in Trump is ridicule from the world and a U.S. government actively telling everyone that Trump does not speak for the country.

It’s too funny and very sad at the same time. Donald Trump voters got what they deserve, an idiot for president.
