HAS TRUMP HAS RISKED A SHOWDOWN WITH CHINA WITHOUT HAVING A CLUE HE HAS DONE SO?

BACKGROUND
  • China considers Taiwan part of China
  • China is the big dog in that part of the world
  • The U.S. doesn't recognize Taiwan as separate from China for fear of causing an international incident

RECENTLY The Bleached Blond Buffoon (BBB), who has no caution because he hasn't the faintest idea of what's  going on, acknowledged Taiwan, talked to the leader by phone, and also acknowledged ties between Taiwan and the U.S. that don't exist.

This is a serious affront to China. And this comes less than two week after China vowed to retaliate if the U.S. (BBB) levies tarrifs, commerce.


I TOLD YOU SO
Like I said before, Mean Tangerine a.k.a. Bleached Blond Buffoon, may start an actual war with his mouth and make the racism, misogyny, anti-semitism, homophobia, and islamophobia here at home look like small potatoes.  Now I'm thinking of trade wars and collapsing economy too.  I just didn't know BBB (a.k.a. Mean Tangerine) could start being dangerous before he was even inaugurated


My bad.

There are no training wheels
for being president.

 You go from a common citizen to the most powerful person on the planet.

And that is not a joke.




"He's got the whole world in his hands" is an old spiritual that has become a favorite of camping trips and sing-a-longs about the power of the Almighty. But when it comes to the affairs of humankind and the planet, you could make the case that you could almost say the same thing about the powers of the president of the United States.
War and peace. Justice and the economy. Even now with the looming catastrophe of climate change, the very health of our Earth. All are in the hands of the president. But here we have Donald Trump, who will soon be sitting behind the desk of the Oval Office tasked with decisions that will shape millions of lives and our world, tweeting lies - lies - about illegal votes.
The very job description of the presidency is you can't afford to be petty. Richard Nixon was and it destroyed him. But I can't think of anyone else who was so obsessed with apparent slights and minutiae. Donald Trump has won the presidency. I know there is a movement to recount votes in a few key states, but barring a plot twist worthy of the Twilight Zone I can't see all of this changing much. For Trump it should be a minor distraction to task a junior aid to keep in touch with not what dominates his mind to such a degree that he issues multiple public statements about it - statements far adrift from any reported fact.
