ICYMI. . .the 'daft twerp' finally got to what was South Vietnam. . .

Ricardo has copied & pasted the text below;
The 'daft twerp' alluded to the war, which claimed more than 57,000 Americans and as many as two million Vietnamese: This city was once home to an American military base, in a country where many Americans and Vietnamese lost their lives in a very bloody war. Today, we are no longer enemies – we are friends.
When he was addressing the leaders of several Asian countries with his 'America First' speech.
Someone asked 'what country do you come from, sir?
He didn't even stop to answer that question.
The image above should be a reminder of the 'daft twerp' dodging the war of his time.
A day ahead of 'Veterans Day.'

ICYMI on remarks on China by the 'daft twerp'...
Some samples;
Campaign event in Bluffton, S.C. - July 21, 2015

I beat the people from China. I win against China.
You can win against China if you're smart.
But our people don't have a clue.
We give state dinners to the heads of China.
I said why are you doing state dinners for them?
They're ripping us left and right.
Just take them to McDonald's and go back to the negotiating table.

Campaign rally in Staten Island, N.Y. -- April 17, 2016

China’s upset because of the way 'daft twerp' is talking about trade with China.
They’re ripping us off, folks, it’s time. I’m so happy they’re upset.

Than there this;
There are people who wish I wouldn’t refer to China as our enemy.
But that’s exactly what they are.
They have destroyed entire industries.
By utilizing low-wage workers, cost us tens of thousands of jobs.
Spied on our businesses, stolen our technology.
And have manipulated and devalued their currency.
Which makes importing our goods more expensive.
And sometimes, impossible.

’Good Morning America’ interview - Nov. 3, 2015

On labeling China an enemy

Because it's an economic enemy, because they have taken advantage of us like nobody in history.
They have; it's the greatest theft in the history of the world what they've done to the United States.
They've taken our jobs.

While visiting China this week, the 'daft twerp' took a softer line.
And said the country was not responsible for trade imbalances with the U.S.

I don’t blame China, the 'daft twerp' said Thursday in Beijing.
After all, who can blame a country for being able to take advantage of another country to the benefit of its citizens?

When the 'daft twerp' did NOT attack China in China.
Some of the Chinese in attentance started to LAUGH.
And the Chinese made it known before; there would be NO questions.
But that did NOT stop some reporters from asking.
If he thought China was still an ENEMY.
Folk out in Asia would call the 'daft twerp' a PAPER TIGER.

A paper tiger
The term refers to something that seems threatening but is ineffectual and unable to withstand challenge.
The expression became well known in the West as a slogan.
Used by Mao Zedong's Chinese communist state against its opponents, particularly the U.S. government.


Scariest costumes


Hint, hint, hint, not for much longer.

Not this tide.
Not this tide.
Not this tide.
None this tide,
Nor any tide.

My play on words from the poem 'My Boy Jack' by Rudyard Kipling

MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN -
SOMETIME IN THE FUTURE...

Disrespecting the flag by kneeling is it UNPATRIOTIC?
Or act to point out an INJUSTICE.
Racism is man's gravest threat to man.
The maximum of hatred.
For a minimum of reason.

Walk a few.
