Breaking News: Grown ass man able to calmly read words he didn't write, how presidential!

Film at noon, 5pm, 6pm, 9pm, midnight...


Now when Obama did this it was called by the rw an "apology tour". Prepare to be overwhelmed by "How presidential!". Don't worry however, more scandal shoes to drop shortly...

3. Yep, as predicted...

The bar was so low for this moron that as long as he kept to script, he would be lauded as "presidential". It's sickening. The right has succeeded in convincing a large swath of this country that intelligence, empathy, insightfulness, and a curious mind are things to be not only distrusted but loathed. We're not too far from Idiocracy.

4. Clearly he did not speak in the same tone he uses everyday, he could have sent a

letter and it would have been more inpressive.

15. I wonder if this wasn't done on porpoise - force the recipient to bow or curtsey

Sorta like that fat slab of a president grabbing people's hands with his diminutive paws and pulling the victim forward. "I'll show you who's really in charge."

Of course the Saudi's have a few more years of practicing humiliation. Not a whole lot more since they were recently just another group of bedouins.

18. No one forced him to curtsy. The medal was already ON HIS NECK.

Sure, the initial bow at the waist was to receive the medal, but why the little curtsy to the King afterward?

19. I couldn't stand to watch all the fakes faking it. Thanks for correcting my limited observation.

Maybe dRump wanted to one-up W who was prone to hand-holding the fakirs.

Next up, the next 'uglican president down on his knees kissing up.....

22. He doesn't even understand what he did

Doesn't know the difference between a bow, a curtsie, a bow with eyes down, a bow with eyes up.

Just an ignorant moron

7. The primary author of Trumps speech in Saudi Arabia

was Stephen Miller, a White House aide who was also the main person behind the travel ban.

8. Grown ass man BARELY able to calmly read words he didn't write, sounds oh so slow-witted.

Trump struggling to read a teleprompter is like Tom Hanks playing the part of slow-witted Forrest Gump, except Trump isn't acting.

Hopefully in his government-issued cloth.

13. Are we going to hear more twaddle now from talking heads who strapped on the knee pads

About how "he officially became President" with this speech. Any one of them that regurgitates such bs for what the fourth time, needs to find another line of work. The fact is it was a despot praising another despot and outlining his vision of despotism. By his wretched deeds you know him. That's ok though it didn't save Nixon who at least comprehended what he was saying and it won't save his treasonous ass from being held accountable for his highest crimes he has committed against America.

17. I still can't watch him very long..

But the clip I saw reminded me of a prisoner of war video. He said he was happy to be there but he looked like he wanted us to pay the ransom and get him out of there.

28. Didn't write the speech, doesn't understand it.

Was just thinking that some reporter should ask him to explain what he meant by "Abrahamic" religions, no doubt his response would be, shall we say, interesting.
