Trump at Margo Lago: ‘You’re the Special People’
You know as opposed to us, the little people who aren’t billionaires at his golf club and who don’t support the Fuhrer in Chief. Let alone those of us of ‘dubious whiteness.’
“Leaked Trump tape: ‘You are the special people’
“Exclusive audio shows how Trump lets loose at his clubs — inviting guests to join him on staff interviews.”
“We’re doing a lot of interviews tomorrow — generals, dictators, we have everything,” Trump told the crowd, according to an audio tape of his closed-press remarks obtained by POLITICO from a source in the room. “You may wanna come around. It’ll be fun. We’re really working tomorrow. We have meetings every 15, 20 minutes with different people that will form our government.”
“We’re going to be interviewing everybody — Treasury, we’re going to be interviewing Secretary of State,” he continued. “We have everybody coming in — if you want to come around, it’s going to be unbelievable….so you might want to come along.”
“As he prepares to spend the third straight weekend at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, the tape provides a window into how Trump conducts himself away from the prying press and among the loyal faces of his club.”
“Trump’s comfort level among his members also has raised questions about his discretion. The president last weekend turned the Mar-a-Lago patio into an open-air situation room — discussing the response to a North Korean ballistic missile test while club members snapped pictures that ricocheted around social media and put him in the crosshairs of congressional oversight from Democrats and Republicans concerned about lax security protocols. While the White House has said that Trump was not discussing classified material in public, the incident received widespread condemnation from national security experts.”
“The incident received widespread condemnation from national security experts. But club members dismissed it as just an example of Trump being the man he has always been with them — available.”
Nothing to see here-just Trump being Trump. He wants to investigate leaks? Why do spies have to go to all that trouble when he discusses sensitive information publicly for the world to see?
“PAYING MEMBERS OF Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach were treated to some impromptu dinner theater this weekend as the new president handled a national security crisis in full view of fellow diners on the resort’s terrace.”
So impeachable offenses on top of impeachable offenses. It reminds me of the old Highlights bag pages in the children’s magazine: can you spot how many things are wrong with this picture?
How many impeachable offenses are there in this sentence? Well two: handling national security in front of fellow diners. That’s one. But these fellow diners are putting money into Trump’s pocket-that’s two.
“Apparently untroubled by the possibility that foreign intelligence services might have made the minimal effort required to plant operatives among the guests, or wait staff, Trump was photographed discussing North Korea’s surprise missile test with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of Japan as waiters removed dishes and aides used their phone flashlights to illuminate sensitive documents.”
“Several images of the spectacle were posted on Facebook a short time later by a new member of the club, Richard DeAgazio, who paid Trump $200,000 to join Mar-a-Lago in December, when it was clear that one of the perks would be access to the new president of the United States.”
So $200,000 dollars to join Trump’s club. Not a bad deal if in exchange you get to see and hear state secrets. And the only reason Degazio was willing to pay this is for access to the POTUS.
“After DeAgazio cheerfully described to the Washington Post his untrammeled view of the crisis being discussed in public — and said that Trump dining on the terrace, with the club members, “just shows that he’s a man of the people” — he changed the settings on his Facebook profile to make the images private. Having made them public for more than 12 hours, however, ensured that screenshots were made by journalists and, one would expect, every foreign intelligence agency of even minimal competence.”
A man of the people? Yes, the billionaire people who can afford $200.000 for dinner. Sad thing is DAgazio meant to praise Trump-he doesn’t understand politics very well.
