An angry Trump claims that world leaders are asking him why American media hates their country so much.

As we know Trump lies about everything all of the damn time.

However this seems especially risky since of course none of his fellow world leaders are going to back him up on this.

So who pissed in his cornflakes.

French President Emmanuel Macron, that’s who.

The tweet comes after media reports portrayed Trump as looking flat-footed, with French President Emmanuel Macron surprising G-7 attendees by inviting Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif to appear on the sidelines of the summit​ ​in Biarritz, France.

When Trump was asked by reporters about Zarif’s rumored attendance he replied with a curt “no comment.”

Marcon’s invitation followed a tense Saturday night dinner in which the leaders discussed Iran’s nuclear program and whether to include Russian President Vladimir Putin in future meetings.

Trump has taken a tough ​stand on Iran, pulling out of the 2015 Iran nuclear agreement, while floating that he believed Putin should be invited to rejoin the G-7, which Russia was pushed out of after annexing Crimea.

So essentially Trump hung Macron out to dry earlier in the day by refusing to acknowledge an agreement to reopen negotiations with Iran, so Macron seems to have gone behind his back to invite Iranian Foreign Minister Zarif to come to G7 and make Iran’s case for further talks. 

This from NBC News

“No one was expecting it,” one U.S. official said of Zarif’s arrival. “It was a surprise.”

U.S. officials said early Sunday, immediately following Zarif’s appearance, that some in the administration were furious at the French government’s decision to invite Zarif to Biarritz without significant advance notice. But they could not characterize the president’s views.

However after the French authorities said that the Americans had absolutely been told about Zarif’s visit the Trump folks came back with this:

A senior administration official said later that “the president is never surprised by these types of actions” and that the administration “absolutely had an idea that he would be here.”

My guess is that the French authorities DID tell some of Trump’s staff that Zarif was coming but the word never made it to Trump or his senior advisers and now they are doing damage control. 

They probably did not tell Trump because they knew he would lose his shit. 

And apparently he is currently in the process of losing that shit now that he knows. 

Which is why he is attacking the media, his favorite target, in order to blow off steam.

      The sporting goods giant stands in sharp contrast with another retail behemoth: Walmart, which has refused to remove guns from its shelves even after the deadly shooting at an El Paso, Texas, location earlier this month.

      And that incident is far from isolated. According to the Gun Violence Archive, there have been hundreds of shootings at or in Walmart locations in just the last 3 years.

      According to data from @GunDeaths, since March 2016, there have been 500 gun incidents at @Walmart stores across the country that resulted in 32 deaths & 215 injuries.

    Trump’s Two G7 Summits

    The president’s narrative stands in stark contrast to what is happening on the ground. That raises serious questions.

    At the Group of Seven meeting in Biarritz, France, there are, in effect, two different summits under way—one that’s happening in President Donald Trump’s mind, and another that is actually happening on the ground; there’s the summit Trump is trying to will into existence, and the summit unfolding in real time.

    To hear Trump tell it, predictions that the weekend summit would be contentious were all wrong. Only the “Fake and Disgusting News” would conclude that his relations with the other leaders meeting in the coastal resort were “very tense,” he tweeted, when in fact, they were “getting along very well.” His counterparts, he insists, are coming forward and agreeing with him that it’s a good idea to readmit Russia to the group, he said today (it was tossed out in 2014 after it annexed Crimea). He’s hearing broad support for his trade dispute with China and a lunch visit yesterday with Emmanuel Macron was the best he’s had yet with his French counterpart, he said.

    Yet in none of these instances does Trump’s version of events hold up. Pressed to name the other leaders who endorse the notion of letting Russia back in, for example, Trump demurred. “I could, but I don’t think it’s necessary,” he said. Trump’s account is even at odds with what his own government has been telling reporters: One U.S. official said that the leaders agreed that the country wasn’t yet deserving of an invitation, according to The Wall Street Journal. A foreign diplomat who represents one of the G7 nations told me, speaking on condition of anonymity, that Russia has done nothing since its banishment that would warrant its inclusion in a club of advanced economies with democratic systems. What’s more, senior administration officials told reporters last week, before Trump left for France, that Russia hadn’t even asked to be readmitted to the G7.
    Trump’s trade war with China has meanwhile taken an ominous turn that is rattling financial markets. On Friday, Beijing said it would impose tariffs on $75 billion worth of U.S. goods, prompting Trump to retaliate with a new round of tariffs and a demand that U.S. companies pull out of China.

    Escalating trade tensions have left U.S. allies unnerved, despite Trump’s claim that his approach is winning approval at the G7. Boris Johnson, in his first face-to-face meeting with Trump since becoming prime minister, commended the overall state of the U.S. economy, but issued an unmistakable rebuke of Trump’s trade practices. Johnson told reporters that “just to register the faint, sheeplike note of our view on the trade war, we’re in favor of trade peace on the whole, and dialing it down if we can.” Asked if he would like to see “trade peace” with China, Johnson added that Britain has “profited massively” from free trade over the past two centuries. Sitting across from a U.S. president who has proudly called himself “Tariff Man,” Johnson said that “we don’t like tariffs on the whole.”

    Even as Trump gushed about his idyllic lunch with Macron, U.S. officials were telling reporters that France’s president was overly focused on “niche” issues, including climate change and the African economy.

    While Trump has celebrated what he calls the cordial spirit at the summit, profound differences have emerged in public. At his meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzō Abe, Trump said he wasn’t happy about North Korea’s missile tests, but also mentioned the “very nice letter” he’d gotten just last week from the country’s dictator, Kim Jong Un. He suggested Kim was right to be upset about the “war games” that South Korea, America’s longtime ally, had undertaken. North Korea, he said, hadn’t violated any “agreement.” Abe took a far different tone. North Korea’s launch of short-range missiles, he said, “clearly violates the relevant U.N. Security Council resolutions.”

    Trump’s narrative encapsulates a larger problem: whether he can be taken at face value, means what he says, and knows his own mind. There was a heart-stopping moment during Trump’s meeting with Johnson when he signaled he was rethinking his hard-line approach to China. “Are you having second thoughts about it?” a reporter asked. “Yeah, sure. Why not? … I have second thoughts about everything,” Trump said. That sounded like a retreat. Was Trump admitting that he wanted a way out of the spiraling trade dispute with China?

    But, no. Or so it seems….

    Let’s look at what has transpired in Donnie Dotard’s world this past week or so:
    1) While looking up to the sky, he said he was the chosen one;
    2) He tweeted a video that referred to him as a King of Israel and the second coming of christ;
    3) It was leaked that he wants to drop nuclear bombs on hurricanes headed to the US;
    4) He ordered US companies out of China;
    5) He increased taxes on Americans via tariffs on Chinese goods;
    6) He praised North Korea’s dictator;
    7) He slurred multiple words while giving a campaign speech that was listed by the White House as an official government speech;
    8) Even though he had five deferments to avoid the draft, he said he wanted to give himself the Medal of Honor;
    9) He lied, lied, lied in his texts, speeches, press conferences, and, well, everything.
    Donnie Dotard is not stable. If Obama had done even one of these during his presidency the republicans would have called for a lynch mob. With Dotard there is silence.

    Has anyone heard about him suggesting that we NUKE hurricanes to keep them from coming into the US? I first heard this a few days ago, and thought surely it’s too ridiculous to be true.

    Well, it’s picking up steam. Trump himself denied it in a tweet, so that means it’s probably true. Jesus Christ. I can’t even..

    “smokescreen” to cover his bigger problems… what really concerned him was the fact that of course he never thinks ahead and that is a problem with a day trader.”

    “The happy birthdays to Regis [Philbin] and Sean Connery and all of the distractions.” Scarborough mock-quoted one of Trump’s tweets. “I mean, this is just absolute nonsense. It was so obviously a smokescreen and this all came back to China getting the best of him. It all came back to the damage he’s causing to America and the world economy with tariffs.”

    It’s the G6 plus the U.S. They know from the get go that Trump is useless, won’t contribute and is just a disruptive influence. He lies. No matter what is said or released, he’ll contradict it. He is a useless piece of shit and an embarrassment to us in front of the world. He is there out of their politeness. In no way would any of them take or ask any advice from him. The President of the United States is no longer the Leader of the Free World. The U.S. is invited out of courtesy, not necessity. Trump is tolerated but hardly respected.

    Trump’s plan to host the 2020 G7 at his own property is proof enough that he is the office to make money, not to in any way serve the American people. I don’t see how he hasn’t been charged under the emoluments clause yet. I know one lawsuit was dismissed but I believe another is still working it’s way through the courts.
