    Trump touted his "Made in America" show at the White House. Wow! The stupid asshole climbed as an "little kid" in an firetruck. He forgot to look at the tires, instrument panel, hoses as well the "steel" where the truck is made of ; the engine parts and even the spark plugs and control modules and lots of other suspension/brake parts of everything in the truck were made elsewhere. I guess this guy must be the dumbest guy in the world and not even realizes that the clothes he wears are not from here either let alone his awful ties, let alone everything in his hotels or even his golf clubs are not made here. I've never in my life seen such an dumb ass as he is.

    No Dutch, he is not the dumbest guy in the world. He knows what he is doing. His motive in "playing firetruck driver"is to associate himself with a symbol of American patriotism, the American fireman. He is not playing so much to ordinary Americans, but rather to his hard core base of rabid hyper-patriot supporters who treat him like a messiah.

    He has never tried to cross the aisle or even appease more moderates in his own party. His motives are to keep his base loyal and energized to hate...hate Crooked Hillary, hate Obama, hate the media the "enemy of the American people", hate anyone who doesn't talk kindly of him.

    The dumbest Americans are those who believe his lies and were conned into voting for him.

    Yes Schmidt, sure; thus you agree his 40% followers are "brainless"; Wow that is thus just about half this country!! ( including him) I've never seen that in other civil educated countries. Not even in Finland!

    Photo-op. Did anyone ask where his clothing was made? I'll bet not, and I'll bet he was wearing Hanes made in Mexico or the Honduras, a Chinese made tie, Chinese made socks, shoes from Italy, jeez he's a friggen mess.

    But, Oshkosh, part of Pierce is mostly American made, fire trucks are diesel powered (Oshkosh-Caterpillar) and possibly Caterpillar-China.

    You'd need to take apart a truck and inspect the parts for country of origin, but I'd say probably 10% of parts on Pierce fire trucks are made outside of the USA. BTW, Pierce, Oshkosh, and Caterpillar have union labor, republicans have been trying to dismantle labor unions for years.

    Trump also did a photo-op at Carrier in Indiana where he supposedly made a deal to keep Carrier jobs in the USA, some 600 jobs at Carrier are still moving out of the USA, so, yes, he is a hypocrite, and a pathological liar.

    How about the "steel" the truck is made of??? China for sure!!! I have a friend who worked plenty of years at Caterpillar in Peoria; lots of parts are imported.

    Many of those supporters were sporting Trump's trademark red "Make America Great Again" baseball caps that were made in China, Vietnam and Bangladesh.

    Some were horrified when they discovered their Trump hats were foreign made.

    It's a shame that DonDon wasn't raised properly, because now we see the fruit of his father's legacy, someone who constantly craves attention, he just has be the center attraction, otherwise he isn't gloating, he is definitely an attention whore. BTW, he probably suffers from ADHD, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder because it's been proven that his attention span is very, very short.

    Inattention

    Inattention, or trouble focusing, is one symptom of ADHD. A doctor may diagnose a child as inattentive if the child:

    • is easily distracted
    • is forgetful, even in daily activities
    • is unable to give close attention to details in school work or other activities and makes careless mistakes
    • has trouble keeping attention on tasks or activities
    • ignores a speaker, even when spoken to directly
    • doesn’t follow instructions
    • fails to finish schoolwork or chores
    • loses focus or is easily side-tracked
    • has trouble with organization
    • dislikes and avoids tasks that require long periods of mental effort, such as homework
    • loses vital things needed for tasks and activities

    Okay, that was cute, but how about Trump driving a big bus all painted in the American flag motif with big USA lettering, going off of a cliff and Americans hanging out of the bus windows screaming for their lives?

    On the news this morning there was a story about an automobile manufacturing plant that's being built (somewhere in the south). Sounds great right ? There were large numbers of guest workers who were brought in to build the factory. I bet there was a dime to be saved. Good jobs building the factory were given to others. Making profits great again.

    False god, profit. The only savior, human rights. Jubilee was said to be an ancient mechanism where all debts were forgiven. What is the point of a few people having all the money??? Money needs to be regulated as a resource because it represents the value of resources. Regulated to stay active, fluid and liquid. Spend spend spend. The whole concept of conservatism is analagous to going out of business.
