(NBC News)   Trump's "white Power" tweet stayed up so long because, even though it set off a "five alarm fire" with senior White House aides, the President had gone golfing and "put his phone down" so they couldn't reach him to get him to agree to delete it   (nbcnews.com) divider line

Well it's good to know that if senior White House officials urgently need to reach the President of the United States, they have NO WAY of doing so if his iPhone is set to "do not distrub"

Bullshiat

Bullshiat. It stayed up for as long as they intended it to stay up.

That's obviously fake news. Trump's phone is fused to his hand.

You'd have to be an idiot to believe the president of the United States is unreachable if he doesn't answer his personal phone. Good grief.

Bunch of malarkey.  The Secret Service agents are always connected to the WH because the guy with the "football" is never more than 20 feet from the president.

Boy, really inspiring confidence in your ability to govern there fellers. Also, it's a good thing I never believed your "It's ok that he's golfing all the damn time because he's always in touch ready to drop his clubs and sprint into action" line, otherwise I'd be really pissed to hear you admit that it's bullshiat. Or it's not bullshiat, but rather "I accidentally tweeted what!? Take it down and prepare me an apology!" isn't something high on the priority list.

/Yes, I liked that comment enough to copy it, big whoop wanna fight about it?

Imagine how much crap of actual criminal evidence he has stuck to him like toilet paper to his shoe?
 
2020-06-30 9:36:04 AM  
Sure, Jan.

Trump is never without his phone.  He is always just a tweet away.  And he absolutely farking knew what was in that video.  He retweeted that and left it up to signal his base, because he knew what was in it.  He's stupid, but he's not that stupid.

Okay, maybe he is that stupid.

Okay, he's definitely that stupid, and then some.  But he still knew!

On some occasions Erdogan reached him on the golf course and Trump would delay play while the two spoke at length.


yeah. There's no way Trump* would let anything interfere with his golfing.
 
2020-06-30 9:45:04 AM  
Either it's a lie. Or in the case of an emergency, the President can't be contacted.

Presumably it's a lie. Although, when a lie makes you look this bad, damn son.

Not sure which is more troubling - the horizontal striped shirt or the lack of trigger discipline.

Yeah I'm not buying it.  There's not a millisecond that goes by where the President is unreachable by WH staff in an emergency.  Even if his phone is off or put down or whatever, someone in his entourage would be available to take the call and relay it to POTUS

I hope the guy with "the football" is carrying a case that contains an actual football which, when the President is angry enough, he can toss 10 feet in the direction of the country he's whining about at that moment.

This is NORAD we have confirmed multiple land and sea based ICBM launches. The first Impact is in 14 minutes. If the President wants to launch a retaliatory strike he must do it before them.

This is the White House switchboard, the president is on the back nine at Doral and he left struck do not disturb instructions. Can you call back later this week?

Sometimes their BS excuses are worse than the problem. Were not racist we have complete dereliction of duty.

There was an incident I wrote about in some detail during the Bush presidency where an unidentified aircraft (turned out to be a VERY lost Cessna pilot) breached DC airspace and Cheney was rushed out of town in an armed Motorcade and Laura Bush and her visiting Mother-in-law were taken to the bunker.

President Bush?  Didn't even know it happened until later.   At the time he was mountain biking at the Patuxent Wildlife refuge in Greenbelt MD, and so according to his aides "couldn't be reached".  I was more than a little suspicious of that explanation as one side of the refuse borders NASA's Goddard Spaceflight Center, and the other end touches Ft. Meade, you know, the place where the NSA has its HQ?   If One of those couldn't provide emergency coms...

THIS President?  Really?  I'm not saying I believe it 50+%, but I could easily be convinced that Trump has told people that there's nothing that can't wait the 4 hours while he's golfing.

They keep making excuses for things that, if they were true, are debatably worse than the truth. Lies are usually supposed to be better than the truth

He was arguing with his staff to keep it up.  He really thinks going full KKK is going to win him the election.

At this point anyone saying they don't think trump is a white supremacist are either bat-shiat insane and  too disconnected from reality to know what's going on. Or knows he is, supports it, and is just too spineless to own it. He's a racist POS who is showing their true colors because they are backed into a corner and left appealing to the only support he's got left.

2020-06-30 9:56:30 AM  
So it seems that the new official White House talking point is that yes, the fark-up in question definitely happened (whatever it may be: this, the Russian bounties, Corona response, whatever), but everyone knows Trump is too selfish, stupid, lazy, and scared to do anything about it, so no big deal.

And 40% of America thinks that's just A-OK.

What kills me is they give Trump the "Dick and Jane" version of the PDB and he still doesn't read it.

Obama was a voracious reader, and according to Susan Rice was meticulous in his attention to his (real, and full) PDBs.

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany and senior adviser Jared Kushner were among those trying to contain the fallout. McEnany said Monday that Trump had watched the video before retweeting it but didn't hear his supporter say "white power."
Officials said the president gets a deluge of content from aides and allies, with one of them saying the "white power" incident was a "lesson to all of us in the White House to be more aware of what's out there."
In April, the president retweeted a posting that included the hashtag "#FireFauci." When asked at the time whether he had noticed the hashtag when he retweeted it, the president said, "Yeah, I notice everything.


LOL, once again, the Orange Dipshiat can't keep his shiat straight.

It's kinda Like Matty "Do you KNOW who my DAD is" Gaetz going on TV yesterday and saying Bolton was "the White House mascot" and hired only to "Troll Iran" as if he thinks it's HELPING to say that the president would appoint a NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER solely to "troll" a country we were moving to the brink of war with
