    President Donald Trump on Wednesday finally admitted that sometimes he just has no idea what he’s talking about.

    In audio recordings obtained by The Washington Post, Trump told a crowd at a Missouri fundraising event about a trade meeting he recently had with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

    “Nice guy, good-looking guy, comes in — ‘Donald, we have no trade deficit.’ He’s very proud because everybody else, you know, we’re getting killed,” Trump said, according to the Post. “So, he’s proud. I said, ‘Wrong, Justin, you do.’ I didn’t even know. ... I had no idea. I just said, ‘You’re wrong.’ You know why? Because we’re so stupid. … And I thought they were smart. I said, ‘You’re wrong, Justin.’ He said, ‘Nope, we have no trade deficit.’ I said, ‘Well, in that case, I feel differently,’ I said, ‘But I don’t believe it.’ I sent one of our guys out, his guy, my guy, they went out, I said, ‘Check, because I can’t believe it.’”

    The guy who continually derides NAFTA as a horrible deal isn't aware that we have a trade surplus with Canada.

    Replace “we” with “I” or “me and my dwindling band of minions”.

    What is this, confession behind closed doors? It is frick’n amazing in the recording that instead of dread, this group of donors is chuckling, as in “haha you’re so clever and funny”. Does that mean, “even though you are a ******* moron (former SoS description), you’re our kind of con man”?

    Addressing the forum, do you all understand how EMBARRASSING this is for us as a country? We elected this sadly deficient, unstable, ignorant, liar as a representation of the U.S. and us. The world looks at us and thinks or asks What about that bunch of losers in North America? It’s possible they are thinking we have no business with the largest nuclear arsenal on the planet. Maybe they’ll put some Iran style sanctions on us. :oops::oops::oops:

    Trump’s biggest lie, the things I’ve done, have made us great again.
    Just how gullible are we??

    Trump is the clear exception, :rolleyes: knowing more than the Generals, more than everyone, except when he thinks he is confidentially admitting, he really knows squat. But that is only when he gets caught. :oops:

    I see no explanation of how he knows. Scary as hell.

    I'm glad to know that I sat in rush hour traffic, made worse by road closures, so this ****stick could go to a swanky hotel in one of St. Louis's wealthiest suburbs, to brag about how he lied to another world leader to a bunch of his cult followers who probably paid thousands of dollars for the privilege to be there.

    Yeah... . I'm feeling nostalgic lately... check out this exchange between 41 and 44 over March Madness. This here is what Twitter's really meant to be used for... not firing cabinet officials and hiring advisors and haranguing Congress over policy differences.

    It only took him a few years to catch up. The cheese slid of his cracker, he slipped in it and cracked his head. It’s clear when listening to him he mainly knows adjectives. It takes him five minutes to say “this is a good deal for our country”.

    “When you look at this deal, a good deal, a great deal - I came up with it by the way, I said to myself ‘I don’t have to do this, but I want to, because why not’, and I thought I don’t want a bad deal, I’m a good guy, I want something good. By the way, they are all evil, over there, I said ‘how can we get a good deal for us and a bad deal for them?’ Hillary was never over there, crooked Hillary.... I went, I sat down, I told them we needed a good deal... so I told them to take $0.50 off cases of Diet Coke for a week. It’s a good deal, an incredible deal for our country”

    But we need to ban video games and violence in movies.... I could rant and ramble on, but this is a stunningly embarrassing presidency.
