Still trying to wrap my melon around the fact Chump called Beauregard an idiot




Trump called Sessions an ‘idiot’ and told him to resign after Mueller appointment: report


President Trump called Attorney General Jeff Sessions an “idiot” and told him to resign during a humiliating Oval Office confrontation, according to a report on Thursday.

Trump raked his top prosecutor over the coals during a May 17 meeting moments after finding out a special counsel had been appointed to the federal probe into possible coordination between his campaign and Russia, The New York Times reported.

Robert Mueller was named special counsel after Trump fired FBI director James Comey and Sessions recused himself from the Russia investigation.

If my boss called me an idiot and/ or gratuitously and maliciously demeaned me in such a fashion, especially in front of others, I would have told him to f--k himself.

4. What would you do if someone demeaned you, especially in front of others?

Oh, I said that was what DSB would do. I do not recommend it as an universal law.

7. Honestly depends what I knew going in

 

When I worked in sales, there were certain clients that were known to be over the top in how they treated salespeople. Clients that determined whether or not your company won tens of millions of dollars of business. One CFO in particular that looked like a walking heart attack, beet red, with sweat and saliva flying at you as he was screaming about your company dropping the ball (which it did.) So you knew going in, that survival of your company came with a bit of hell. You could choose to leave the job. I left the job.

It was not one sided either. I knew salespeople that mistreated clients. Which they would not dare to do with a maniac client.

I also see it a lot in couples, in which the recommendation is always, get the hell out, if asked.

Happens with kids in organized sports, which is why I hate organized sports.

9. I was in sales as well but fortunately I never had an abusive client.

My friend wasn't so lucky. He was selling Yellow Page ads in Melbourne, Florida . He made a cold call on a body shop owner. The body shop owner showed him his knuckles. It was tattooed F--k You.

Before I started my own company I had three bosses, two were Republican, one was a Democrat. It's hard to make inferences from such a small group but the Democratic boss was much better. She tried to run her business like a democracy with liberal and flexible rules, sometimes but not often to her chagrin. My Republican boss threatened to "break my legs" if I went to work for his competitor but it didn't stop me. He was a legit tough guy. He once told this guy in the freaking cement industry that if you bad mouth me to my competitors "I will cut your f--king balls off." He never insulted me because I made him a lot of money but he created a terrifying work atmosphere.

In the space of one month my mom had a hip pinning, a femoral-popliteal bypass, and an amputation. I was the only family she had. I was a wreck going to see her twice , three times a day in the hospital. Naturally it affected my work. My boss was giving me grief and I quit. I was stressed out. As I was packing my stuff I forgot this little figurine in the form of a teddy bear my mom gave me that contained a thermometer. He waves it at me and said you forgot something. I called him a "f---ing idiot" and left.

The story gets better. The only way to collect unemployment insurance is to be fired or quit because of a hostile work environment. I claimed the latter and got a whole week of unemployment insurance before I got a job working for my friend who understood my circumstances. I was seeing a psychiatrist because I was emotionally spent . He wrote a letter supporting my reasons for quitting. My ex boss contested it. An administrative hearing is set and he ignored it. So another one is set and we show up and the administrative judge reams him in front of me and rules in my favor. Some times the little guy wins.

Oh, Trump had no right to talk to Jeff Sessions like that.

2. Although I regrettably agree with himself....

It shows how truly ball-less Sessions is.

He bullies with pen and paper, and words.

He loves his little A.G cubbyhole, where he can force his narrow minded views upon our society.

Deep down, he is a spineless sniveling coward, afraid of anyone who is not white, and of like mind.

He, like the occupant, relies on others to do their dirty work.

5. What is it about people in Trump's orbit?

Why in the world would anyone continue to work with Trump when he treats people so rudely? Sessions is either entirely spineless or Trump has some kind of control over him. I can't understand it.

Likewise, recent reports that Trump screamed at his chief of staff, General Kelly, are difficult to understand. Kelly told people afterwards that he's never been spoken to in such a manner in his life. Why didn't he quit on the spot?

Sessions apparently offered Trump his resignation but Trump later rejected it. If I were in that position, I'd reject his rejection. As the OP wrote, I'd tell him to fuck off. What could he do? Arrest me? Of course, I'd never work for him in the first place.

It's just incomprehensible to me that anyone would work with such an abusive, ignorant, despicable person.

10. I don't imagine most folks would holler at a general.

11. What you wrote is true

Of course, General Kelly wasn't always a general.

6. Sessions is still a Useful Idiot, just impaired

But since Sessions is as morally corrupt and conniving as Comrade Casino (the republican Draft-Dodger-in-Chief) he remains useful to the KGOP Kabal Kicking America's democratic traditions in the nuts.
