Trump heaps praise on himself in rambling speech to soldiers during surprise Afghanistan visit

Mod: So is this really why our soldiers are still fighting in Afghanistan? Because it is good for the stock market? Too bad his impeachment polls are running at 50%. He could have stayed in Florida and golfed.

Trump heaps praise on himself in rambling speech to soldiers during surprise Afghanistan visit (Raw Story link): During a surprise visit to troops in Afghanistan on Thanksgiving Day, President Donald Trump gave a rambling and confused speech in which he credited himself for the economy and claimed people are thanking him for their 401(k)s and saying he “made them look like a genius.”

“We flew 8331 miles to be here tonight for one simple reason, to tell you in person that this Thanksgiving is a special Thanksgiving,” said Trump. “We’re doing so well. Our country is the strongest economically it has ever been. We’ve never done so well. We have the greatest economy anywhere in the world. So it is nice to know that you are fighting for something that is doing well as opposed to something that was not doing well just a number of years ago.”

“Our stock market has reached the highest level ever in the history of the exchanges, all three,” continued Trump. “If you look, all three. It is incredible. It is incredible what is happening. Just broke a record. I think it is close to 130 days. So we’re less than three years and 130 times we’ve broken the all-time record. And to me that didn’t mean an all-time record, it means something different. It means jobs. It means 401(k)s. People come up to me with their 401(k)s and they say, ‘You’ve made me look like a genius. Thank you very much.’ They are up 78 percent. They feel good.”

Mod: In other news, I'm kind of surprised they even let Eric out of the tower.

‘Umpa lopa doodle dee doo’: Eric Trump mocked for new ‘Leave Our President Alone’ stunt (Raw Story link): On Thanksgiving Day, Eric Trump attacked the impeachment effort by tweeting an image of a classic Trump hat, with the slogan altered to read “Leave Our President Alone,” complete with a hashtag. 

In short order, commenters on social media had a field day, mocking him for the stunt — many of them suggesting meanings for the word “LOPA” in foreign languages, and others offering other phrases the acronym could stand for. Like LOPA - Love Of Putin Always.

  1. What a Complete Narcissistic Buffoon. Embarrassed that our troops had to listen to his babble.

  2. Trump lusts after other men's wives.

    Just ask Jared Kushner.

    1. The only place left somewhere if anyone booed him they could be court marshalled. Sad, a draft dodger taking advantage of patriots. HE HAS NO SHAME!

    2. Probably talked about how he avoided being captured during the Vietnam War.

    3. My guess is Trump knows the treason charge is sticking, and he is gluing himself to our military people every chance he gets in hopes the photo ops will wash away the stain. He'd never been to Afghanistan before this.

      Why now? I think it is called borrowed valor.

    4. He should have been thanking the troops instead of talking about himself.

    5. ... He spent about 30 seconds lamenting that he didn’t get to try the Turkey. And then he went on to talk about what a great guy he is and what a good job he is doing as president. He’s doing so great that random people are thanking him for making them “look like a genius” with their retirement plans ...

      The Thanksgiving trip, which lasted around three-and-a-half hours, marked the first time Trump had been to Afghanistan ...

  6. Democrats have a better choice than impeachment

    After amassing the testimony and preparing for the articles of impeachment, the House could change course and introduce a resolution for censure of the President. In it, they would recite all the behavior that would go into articles of impeachment. But instead of Trump's removal from office as a remedy, it would essentially place the impeachment process in abeyance until the House can determine whether it will be able to hear from additional key witnesses.

    5. Yeah, couple this years increase with NEGATIVE returns in 2018 and your screwed pal.

    6. yeah and when your 401k and job don't exist because the world is drowning in chaos because of climate change you will be SO happy you have money that means nothing. Remember that Twilight Zone where 3 bank robbers stole a bunch of money and put themselves to sleep in a cave in the mountains for like 100 years and they thought when they woke up they would be rich for the remainder of their lives, but while they slept money became worthless and the only thing that mattered was water? That's what will happen to all of us fools if you think that money is the only thing that matters... fools all of us until the sad ending.

  8. Interesting. Trump has hired an ex-Bill Clinton poll guy to advise him. Wonder why.

  9. Since 7:18 is challenged, perhaps a graphical representation of data will prove the market under dump is actually worse than Obama:

  11. 7:18 AM - To the "nest egg increasing" under (djt). I might draw your attention to the fact you have a leak and you need your "nest egg depends" changes at once. Other wise HazMat will have to be called. In-fact you might want to have (djt) depends changed too!

  12. Biden & Sons increased their 401ks while serving under President Obama fool. If you didn't know what lying and cheating would do for you under his party then you really missed the boat that would support you with climate change washing you away.
    Or you should have bought a home in Martha's vineyard just like Barrack and sleepy Joe since you thought their economy was so great then you would have ocean front property in ten years!

    4. You are so wrong and don't admit the truth. Just like you, the only people I support is myself and my family. And don't tell me that you all altruistic and give me that kumbaya self-absorbed bs (e.g., attending churches, donating and pretending that you are decent people). You about as fake as the ubiquitous plastic non-reusable bags and having a collective dilutional herd mentality.

    1. Give me a break... Perhaps NK is learning from the best USA business practice like stealing lands from the American native Indians. Have you ever heard of the term Indian giver??? And don't forget about using free labor by importing slaves...
