There is much I’ve been wanting to write about regarding this week’s events and Donald Trump but, sadly, I’m overwhelmed. I honestly can’t understand how controversy has become so common place in America. Politics is always controversial so I’m not writing about the controversy of politics. But, rather the controversy of hatred and how clearly Donald Trump is unwelcome in England, or most places, except, maybe Russia.

Almost everyone has heard about the “special relationship” England and the United States have. Rather, had. When a giant balloon in diapers depicting the president of the United States is flown over London during Trump’s visit, it says a lot about what people really think about Trump and his politics of hatred. England and the United States have historically shared many ideals over the years and when there was discord among them, diplomacy and decorum was used to display each other’s displeasure.

As such, the giant Trump Baby balloon says a lot about where America is today, even though some will try to spin it as nothing.

The fact is that a giant balloon depicting the president of the United States as a spoiled child carries with it the reality that the United States has lost standing even with its strongest ally.

I’ll let you all ponder that for a while.

In the meantime, here’s SCOTUS cartoon for your enjoyment, courtesy of Cagle Cartoons.

  1. As they say he’s laughing all the way to the bank. So far he’s managed to get other countries to fold and agree with him. NKorea might be the only exception.

    NATO has agreed to pick up the load.The Syrian IsIs is being destroyed for once. Mad Dog Mathis has the Taliban on the run and there is an American envoy there to discuss peace in Afghanistan. The Mexican President(hope he gets security) pledged to develop a professional Border Patrol along its southern border to stop traffic. Which is smart as now he doesn’t have to be concerned with policy conflicts with the US and deal with the refugee overflow. He has pledged to improve conditions for the Mexican people. Will he deliver ? We’ll wait and see.

    He’s rough on the edges but is getting the job done. Don’t agree with all decisions but he’s trying and not bowing all the time.

    These other countries are in a panic because they are not used to a leader and catering to their whims has stopped.

  2. Trump was the only candidate talking about the issues that concern me, namely border security (the wall), illegal immigration and getting the US out of these unilateral trade treaties that have so decimated its heartland, where I hail from.

    We’ll see how he does, but I for one wish him success if he can just keep his zipper up for three more years.
