Rachel Maddow goes beyond the call of duty to report all of the craziness surrounding Donald Trump’s visit to the G7.

So yesterday afternoon I was anticipating a post like this to give all of you an overview of the batshit crazy lies and misstatements uttered by Donald Trump during the G7.

To be honest I was kind of dreading it as there was just so many ridiculous statements made that I did not think I could possibly catch them all. 

Then last night I watched Rachel Maddow’s show and saw that she had the same idea and with her crack research team did a far better job than I could possibly have done on my own. 

I will also provide this link to the Washington Post article on Trump’s G7 visit and provide a few exerpts from it for those who do not want to watch the entire video. 

Here are a few of the top batshit comments made by Trump according to the article: 

1) In four days, Trump imposed new tariffs on China, called the country’s president an “enemy,” admitted “second thoughts” on the escalating trade war, reversed course hours later to say he only wished he had raised the tariffs higher, and then vowed a deal would be coming soon — because China wants one desperately, in the president’s telling. Doesn’t that make it harder, a reporter asked, to make a deal?

“Sorry, it’s how I negotiate,” he said. “It’s been very successful over the years.”

2) Trump claimed to have gotten two phone calls on Sunday night from high-ranking Chinese officials seeking to negotiate a trade deal. “High-level calls,” he said. Chinese government officials said Monday that they were unaware of any such calls. When Trump asked Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin to back him up, Mnuchin would only say there had been “communication,” avoiding the word “call.” The treasury secretary quickly interjected again Monday afternoon to add “communications.”

3) Although he said French President Emmanuel Macron asked his permission to invite Iran’s foreign minister to the G-7, Macron said that he simply “informed” Trump in advance of his plan and that it was Macron’s idea alone.

4) At length, he boasted about his private properties. Trump refused to divest, unlike many of his predecessors, and has profited from an influx of Republican fundraisers and other political events. Questioned about the propriety of profiting from next year’s summit of world leaders, he batted down any concern.

“I don’t want to make money,” he said. “I don’t care about making money.”

His resort in Miami, he said, would make a terrific locale for the G-7 because of its bungalows, proximity to the airport, large ballrooms and substantial parking.

“Biggest ballrooms in Florida,” he said.

5) “What’s England? What’s happening with England? They don’t use it too much anymore,” Trump says he told British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

6) He showed no concern that the North Korean dictator had violated U.N. resolutions by firing missiles, instead saying that Kim would not personally disappoint Trump. In a long-winded answer, Trump nodded to his wife, Melania, and claimed she had gotten to know Kim Jong Un very well; the White House later acknowledged that Kim and the U.S. first lady have never met.

To be honest that is not even all of them.

I left out the part where Trump lied about President Obama being outsmarted by Putin, because I covered that yesterday. And there were a few other bizarre things I left out as well. 

All in all Trump’s mental health problems were on full display during this summit, and from the look on the faces of some of the other world leaders they did not fail to notice. 

To be blunt, despite your political leanings, if you are still supporting a second term for this escaped mental patient you are by definition a traitor to your country.

    Funny, I just emailed Lisa Murkowski that very same accusation about loyalty to this country before I read this post.

    Thanks, anon at 8:48 a.m. You got me to do the same thing. I don’t understand that woman. It’s not like the Republicans have done her any favors that she needs to fall in line with them. I had hopes that she would show a little courage.

    Trump’s Unprecedented Fight to Withhold Information

    The 45th president has again set himself apart—this time by resisting congressional oversight to an unparalleled degree.

    How Trump’s attempt to profit off the G7 summit just ‘backfired spectacularly

    Trump’s promotion of his Doral resort — which is in steep decline, operation income dropped 69% — has backfired spectacularly.

    Not only is there no way G-7 will be there — clearly illegal — but he’s now elevated the Miami Herald report of bedbugs, likely devastating business.

    Lowlifes

    ……The latest example of this is Stephanie Grisham, who has apparently had problems with booze and plagiarism and falsified expense accounts. She is now White House press secretary, even though she has yet to host a press briefing and hasn’t granted that many interviews. She still has the opportunity to fail upward. We basically know nothing about her except that she’s a flawed and damaged white person, like the bulk of Donald Trump’s base. I guess if I was was a poor white person watching him elevate someone like her, I’d put on a MAGA hat too, and halfway believe there was hope for me too..

      What a cushy job, she doesn’t even have to perform like the old Huckabee evangelical player.
      Grisham is an infamous liar. Now she handles both of the lying Trumps, because she is so good at lying for liars like no one else can do. She is the epitome of what Melania T’s Be Best means.

    “”This unanimous decision by the European Court of Human Rights completely destroys the Russian government’s narrative,” Browder said. “It basically says that the Russian government murdered Magnitsky — and that’s a very important court finding.” – “Magnitsky had been working for the hedge fund Hermitage Capital when he alleged he had uncovered a $230 million tax fraud scheme by Russian officials.”

    You know, it seems comical and I agree with Rachel Maddow that it could be a great farcical movie IF it were not happening in real time.

    Lots of people think that the next president, assuming (I pray) that it will not be Trump back for a second term, can just undo his executive orders in the way that Trump has undone so many of President Obama’s executive orders that actually helped people and aimed to protect the world’s environment. However, since so many of Trump’s executive orders have hurt people and the environment it will be difficult to undo the damage done in the meantime. The latest, that the world’s largest temperate rainforest, located in Alaska, will be open to logging means that it could be all be decimated before a competent, intelligent different president takes office. Damage to the environment cannot be undone so quickly. For that reason, I don’t think Trump’s blatant displays of public lunacy are funny. They are frightening. Our old allies have lost confidence in our system of government and it will be difficult to restore that confidence.

      Scarecrow went to a logging convention in Oregon. Drag a girl logger reputation thru mud.
      DoD told girl logger she lost $2.4 billion a year.
      Going to court about that ‘defimation’ will cost ol Scarecrow more than she has in assets! 😳

    In short order, social media commenters buried the president in an avalanche of mockery:

    Replying to @realDonaldTrump
    -fell asleep in a meeting
    -lied about skipping climate meeting
    -annoyed other leaders with your Putin praising
    -almost fell down stairs
    -watched Melania fawn over Trudeau
    -back tracked on China tariffs and lied about it
    -laughed at by Merkle
    -had a crazy presser

    All in 3 days.
