    A story popped up on The Hill this morning that touches on a topic that we have discussed in the past (emolument) but which bears a little further discussion.

    The White House is reportedly pushing for Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar to come to President Trump’s golf course in Doonbeg, Ireland, for a meeting when the president visits the area next month.

    "The Irish government feel that protocol dictates that any event they host for President Trump should be at a venue of their choosing and certainly not at an hotel owned by Trump,” the source told CNN.

    Irish officials have reportedly offered a compromise — Varadkar will host Trump for dinner at nearby Dromoland Castle and then come to Trump’s Doonbeg hotel for breakfast.

    The White House has reportedly refused that offer and threatened to have the president skip the visit and travel to one of his golf properties in Scotland instead.

    For a man who is 72 years old, he sure is acting like a 2 year old spoiled brat.

    For obvious reasons, Trump is incredibly unpopular in Ireland.

    Trump is also traveling to Great Britain and France to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day. If he winds up giving a speech at Normandy Beach, it will be another fiasco, since he is incapable to uttering complete sentences.

    Schmidt calls this properly "vetting" if the idiot in the W.H. knows nothing of Ireland, let alone of D-Day, because of the "bought" school certificate by his KKK Daddy.

    Dutch -- I will say it again. Amongst other deficiencies, it was well know that Trump knew shit about foreign affairs, cultures and governments other than bribing people at the top for real estate deals. He was called ignorant on foreign policies, but that didn't matter to the 63 million who voted for him because they too were largely ignorant...not to mention a bunch of bigots. I could cite sources on the internet that goes back way before the election that highlighted what was wrong with Trump, but it just didn't matter to a whole bunch of them. He was vetted and for many of the people who voted for him said, "so what". For others he was speaking their language.

    He could win again in 2020 despite all the subsequent vetting by Mueller and others. For his most avid supporters it just doesn't matter.

    I will say it again too; as I wrote many times that this is an stupid country without proper up to date laws reflecting 2019, let alone having strict laws (not just rules) for the leaders of this country as well "elections' which are "bribed' all the way with lots of money from "billionaires etc. Dock said it correctly" only "money" counts here, not "brains". And it does not matter how you got it, or paid any taxes, as long as you have an "bully" mouth and plenty of "handout" bribe money and ask "loyalty". In the meantime Trump making 424 million (where did that money come from, doing nothing?) in 2018. On top of that having 63 million uneducated voters as you said, because we rather spent our tax money on wars and war tools than "education" Amen. Even an"zillion" lawyers can't fix this country. The truth hurts.
