Why is Donald Trump talking foreign policy on the Today Show?

This morning master showman Donald Trump was a guest on the Today Show. He was there to promote the Miss USA pagent, but Matt Lauer decided to throw him a foreign policy question. Specifically Lauer said that Trump has repeatedly called the president “weak” what he do if he was president in reference to the behavior of Putin. Of course the pompus Trump said it should have nver happened, but when pressed Trump offered criticism and this stinging line. Trump said I hope the President does not try to “show his manhood” by doing something stupid. Why the manhood reference? Trump might be a successful businessman but he has not been elected to any office. He is a Monday morning quarterback who NBC has given an incredible platform to spew his venom regarding this president. It must translate into ratings gold for them because he is still allowed to do it. Lauer willingly lobbed the prepared soft pitch and predictably Trump hit it out of the park during his visit to the Today Show to pump anothe one of his circus acts.

Both comments and trackbacks are currently closed.

    Donald Trump was talking foreign policy on THE TODAY SHOW because as you stated, he was asked a foreign policy question by Matt Lauer. It is irrelevant whether or not you personally like Donald Trump but his assessment of the president’s lack of qualifications and being a weak leader has been proven and exposed to the entire world. It was so obvious to Putin that at one of the G20 meetings early in his term Putin was overheard publicly stating to Sarkozy “man this guy is really weak”. It was at that point that his fate was sealed with Putin. If there is one thing KGB officers don’t respect very much is weakness. The reason for the manhood comment by Trump is because it is obvious based on some of his own comments that the president is being dogged by the weak image perception.

    It isn’t clear to me what point you’re attempting to make by reminding us that Trump has not been elected to public office. Is that a prerequisite qualification for having or stating an opinion about the president’s performance? If so then we’re all in violation. But Trump has as you stated been a successful businessman and that experience is far more relevant and valuable in developing negotiating and leadership skills which the president sorely lacks than being a community organizer. And as a business leader the measurement for success are objective.

      If this is an attempt to make a point you didn’t succeed. If you disagree with anything stated here, refute it. If this exhausts the extent to which you’re able to express yourself then so be it; I’ll remain in a quandary.
