Donald Trump Embarrasses America While Touting His Business As World Markets Drown

June 24, 2016

There is no way to make up the crazy that is Donald Trump.

The press conference that Trump held in Scotland while most of us were sleeping is a stunner, to be sure.

Facts never seem to get in the way of the orange-skinned man so it should not surprise anyone that Trump praised the British vote to leave the European Union in Scotland–a place that overwhelming voted to remain in the European Union.

To make matters more bizarre he then proudly said the falling British pound would be good for business–his business!  He openly and brazenly used the press conference to tout the opening of his new golf course in Scotland.

With racism front and center he praised the exit of Britain from the EU and referred to Brexit backers’ opposition to immigration by saying “people who you don’t want … you are not going to have to take.”

The unseemliness was a continuing theme of his conference as he made a great deal of effort to stress that Britain’s declining currency was good for business, including at his new golf course.

“If the pound goes down, they’re going to do more business.”

Before he answered reporters’ questions Trump made a huge production about the opening of his new golf course in Turnberry, Scotland.    It was the most embarrassing spectacle that has been made by an American on foreign soil in a long time.  (It is no wonder we are often scorned abroad.)  This was all happening as Trump advertised for his own businesses and bottom line on a day like today when global markets are reeling and much of Britain and the whole continent is in economic shock.

It was simply obscene.

    “After all, the chief business of the American people is business. They are profoundly concerned with producing, buying, selling, investing and prospering in the world. I am strongly of the opinion that the great majority of people will always find these the moving impulses of our life.” C. Coolidge

    No, Orlin.

    Trump is now the presumptive nominee of the Republican Party. His bottom line is now not what should concern him–the interests of the nation should be. That you also seem to fail to grasp that fact does say a lot, does it not?

    Yeah, that’s weird, a business man talking business while abroad on business.

    The flag business was a hoot! Simply perfect.

    This “reality ‘star’ performance” is further evidence Mr. Trump wins the contest for Ultimate Immoral/Unethical Narcissist — as if anyone besides Vladimir Putin would be a contender for this title. I wonder how Mr. Trump liked all of the Mexican flags that were flying in Scotland (a not-so-subtle dig at Mr. Trump’s xenophobia). Maybe we’ll see another Trump meltdown while he is abroad….
