The greatest deal maker not March 28, 2017

Trump proudly called himself the negotiator-in-chief but couldn’t even close a deal in the House of Representatives which is controlled by his own party. 

What kind of deal maker is Trump really? 

A losing one. So far. 

Have you heard of these deals?

Trump Steaks, Trump University, Trump Vodka, Trump Suits, Trump fragrances, Trump board game, Trump ghostwritten books, Trump energy drink, Trump eyeglasses and Trump chocolate bars.

These are all Trump deals.

Maybe Trump is over-rated?

Repealing Obamacare should be essier from the budgetary point of view because AHCA should save America tax payers nearly one trillion dollar over a decade. Tax reform, defense budget and infrastructure policies require debt increase to pass. 

The bill which ultimately would reduce national debt didn’t get to pass, what chance do the ones requiring more America tax money have over the objection of the Freedom Caucus?

Not a lot.

Trump might know how to close a deal on an apartment building but he probably knows nothing about heardcare, influence of the special interest groups, what it takes to control various factions in the Republican Party and how to deal with the opposition from the Democrat Party. 

Trump still has a long way to go and a steep learning curve to climb.

No one else to blame but Republicans themselves March 26, 2017

Many conservative talk show hosts are doing their best to find cover for Trump. Ryan became the de facto scapegoat.

Some asked for Ryan’s head because he failed the party and Trump. Some even suggested that Trump was on board according to his tweet.

Some called out the “The Freedom Caucus” and suggested that they planted a dagger in the Trump presidency.

Well, I of course don’t know what’s going on in the Republican Party, but Trump, Ryan and the Freedom Caucus are all responsible for the misery they are facing now. 
Trump failed to negotiate a deal in his own party even though he kept touting his “best-deal-maker-ever-lived-in-this-world” image. Ryan didn’t do a good job as the leader of the Party. The Freedom Caucus forgot that the Republican Party was bigger than the Caucus. They sacrified party image and  party unity with by staying their ground and opposing the bill. 

Sadly to say, the Republican Party is probably the most disfunctional party of the land; about the same as the Democrat Party before the November 2016 election. 

The path ahead for the Republican Party is treacherous in the face of the united Democrat opposition. The budget, the border wall, the Supreme court candidate Judge Gousuch, the Russian inquiry, Trump’s unsubstantiated wiretap claim, the tax reform and infrastructure spending are all difficult legislation battles. Without unity, the Republican Party will fail to produce meaningful legislature, Trump will be trapped by his own wotds, Democrat will regain the Senate in 2018 and  Trump will be a lamb duck for 2 years.

Learn the lesson from the failure of the American Health Care Act and work together on the next agenda item. Trump and the Republican Party can recover from the first defeat. If one failure turns into two and two becomes three, Trump will be among the least effective presidents in recent memory.

You are fired. March 25, 2017

In general, VCs don’t buy a family business no matter how successful it is. Trump should apple the same principle too: no relatives in the White House. 

Democrats and the liberal media should have a field day with imploding of Ryancare legislation and SNL, The Tonight Show and Jimmy Kimmel Live! will make a mockery out of the Trump family too.
So Trump is “furious” but will Trump utter the words: “You are fired” to Ivanka and Khshner? 

Please stay tuned.

一丘之貉 March 22, 2017

貉的英文是 raccoon dog。它跟 raccoon 是不一樣的。Raccoon 的中文是狸。這兩種動物長得有點像,可是它們在血源上是不相連的。

這是 Raccoon 狸:

而 Raccoon dog 長得是這個樣子:

那一丘之貉是什麼意思呢?一丘是一個小土山頭。這句話就是說,一個山頭上所有的貉長得都很像。

其實,政客就跟一丘之貉一樣,個個都長的一個樣,每個都醜的很。每個政客在競選前說的話,在競選時提出來的保證,都跟放屁一樣。像洞裏吹出來的一陣風,一出來就風消雲散,無踪無影。

Trump 是一個政客,是一丘之貉中間的一個。

Trump 競選時說他不會動 Social security, Medicare and Medicaid.. 他不止一次的相選民保證,他絕對不會砍這幾個項目的撥款。

可是,共和黨提出來, Trump 也支持,今天(3/23/2017)就要在眾議院投票,爲平反 Obamacare 所提出來的法案,讓我們姑且稱它爲 Ryancare,中間就有砍 Nedicare 和 Medicaid 的條款。

簡單的說, Trump 明明白白,完完全全的違背了他競選時提出來的保證。

你說 Trump 和其他的政客不是一樣嗎? 他們就跟一丘之貉一樣。

Comey, hurry up March 21, 2017

Trump should tweet this line every day to remind FBI director that he better finishes his investigation soon. 

If Comey drags his feet into late 2018 or even into 2019, Trump will be in big trouble should Democrat win the control of the Senate. Democrat will for sure appoint a special prosecutor to conduct a separate investigation into Trump and his campaign’s connections to Russia government.
And there will be no mercy in the search of any wrongdoings by the POTUS.

Impeachment? Resignation? Everything is possible because liberals hate him.

看來他心情不太好 March 16, 2017

整天皺個眉頭。頭髮好像白了不少。不知道他的假髮是不是還在。

煩惱,頭疼,無奈,一籌莫展。一上臺就一直吃癟,天天救火,卻拿他的對手沒辦法。他的敵人太多,逼得他無處可逃。這些靠寫新聞稿子吃飯的記者,罵人的技巧比 Trump 還厲害。Trump 罵他們是罵不過的。Trump 自己又常常亂 tweet 一通,說話也常常不經大腦,給他的對手一個又一個機會來菜他。看來,Trump 搞不定了。
以前 Trump 做自己公司的老闆,心裏一不舒服,想罵雖,就把那個人叫來,乖乖的跪在跟前。他想怎麼罵,就怎麼罵,髒話連篇也沒有人敢說個不字。他想炒那個人魷魚,就炒那個人魷魚。

(附註:一般來說,美國人,不論男女,罵人絕對是髒話連篇的。如果你把麥克風送到這些人的嘴邊,髒話一下子就不見了。不過有時候還會爆出一兩句。)

想必 Trump 常常會跟自己說:你看我現在有多麽的威風,多麼的有成就感。連中國以前的皇帝都沒有我厲害。

現在做了美國總統,住進了白宮,他Trump 是世界公認最有權力的人。一人(太太?)之下,三億三千萬人之上,好不神氣。白宮裏,那個人不是對他畢恭畢敬,總統這個,總統那個的,叫得他打心裏面高興。只見他,坐在總統辦公室裏面的那張桌子的後面,面對攝影機和照相機,發號施令,威風凜凜。

可是這個白宮老闆並不是真正的老闆。白宮外面有上百個老闆天天找他的渣子,翻他的舊賬。自己手下的員工也對他不滿,偷偷的把他的醜聞報給記者發表,堵都堵不起來。

現在,他也威風不起來了。做什麽事都礙手礙腳的。不但民主黨的罵他,連共和黨的也扯它的後腿。怪不得他頭疼呢。

再來幾次,頭疼事小,血壓增加,頭髮都要白光了。怪可憐的。

Trump lied.

Trump apparently read article on conservative website or listened to conservative talk radio show and claimed that Obama wiretapped Trump Tower without a shred of evidence.

Now he tried to eat his own tweets which shows he doesn’t have the mental capacity to take the White House job. He is not fit to take the 3 Am phone call.

If he continues to throw his tantrum at will, he will be laughed by people all over the world. America democracy will be the butt of the joke. Trump, well, is making a mockery of the presidency of the U.S. and is making a fool out of himself.

What a shame.

America’s standing in the world has been tarnished by Obama’s appease to foreign countries and his action of disengagement from world affairs.

Is Sessions on the way out? March 12, 2017

Trump may be wise to let Sessions go if he intends to govern with a clean slate. If Trump continues to support Sessions, which he will, he will likely face an even bigger crisis if more leaks are reported by the media.

Sessions recused himself from all investigations into Russian influence on Clinton’s campaign is a de facto admission of guilt. 

Trump of course will defend Sessions till the end because of his big ego. Yet, Trump’s first fifty days looks like an exercise of putting out fires which seemed to keep poppin out with every news article on Russian Ambassador by WP or NYT.

The way it is going so far, it appeared that almost everyone in Trump’s inner circle has met with Russia’s ambassador to the U.S. The instruction must have come from the very top. That’s why many reporters are digging deep to find that big smoking gun. They won’t stop until it is found.

Trump’s lack of experience on how government works, his naive believe that he soon would be the president of the U.S. which gave him the right to do what he wanted, his intention to improve relationship with Russia and his big ego probably led him to ask his close friends to contact Russian Ambassador before he moved into the White House. 

His denail, Sessions’s denail and Sessions’s apparent lie under oath gave the left a perfect incentive to dig further.

Left’s attack on Sessions will not stop and Trump may eventually be trapped by more denails until the liberal media contradict these lies with more leaks from inside the White House or Trump’s Justice Department.

The left has formed a powerful alliance to trash Trump. They have smelled blood and they will not stop until Trump breaks down. 

This moment mya be around the corner.

Trump is paranoid under the spotlight March 8, 2017

Trump’s “unsubstantiated” accusation of Obama had Trump Tower wire tapped before the 2016 presidential election may be Trump’s tactic to draw attention away from news media and government’s investigation into contacts between Trump’s election campaign and Russian diplomat.

On the other hand, his shoot-from-the-hip tweets expose Trump’s paranoid nature and his “can’t-handle-defeat” mindset. His rant against his close advisers at the White House, his wild accusations against Obama, his denial of contacts between his subordinates and Russian diplomats and his inability to stop Congressional and FBI’s investigations into his campaign’s Russian connections clearly exposed Trump’s anxiety and fear.

The fact that Trump is being savagely attacked by the media appears to have made him behaving irrationally.
