Surprising absolutely no one, causing sensible heads to be palm-struck all across the world, hobo globe-rider Donald Trump pulled the U.S. out of the Paris climate accord this week. I can barely contain my enthusiasm.
The President now totally owns himself.
You want my feelings? In short, I’ll tell you: Blah consequences yada yada planet catastrophe hummina you fucking kidding me? The Paris Agreement is only a bare bones effort. There’s nothing binding in it. It’s closer to a mutual simpatico – or a continuing conference – than a step-by-step solution to anything. But apparently even a handful of meetings is too much for the business gargoyle cum pussy grabber. If ever there were a decision whereby you could take the immediate measure of a man, this would be it.
Squatting to adorn the announcement with own his touch, Trump read this from the teleprompter while his speechwriters hey-ooo’ed and high-fived in the aisles.
At what point does America get demeaned? At what point do they start laughing at us as a country? We want fair treatment for its citizens, and we want fair treatment for our taxpayers. We don’t want other leaders and other countries laughing at us any more. And they won’t be. They won’t be.
I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris…
We know exactly what this crap is. It’s a poke in the eye aimed directly at the math n’ reality types, people like you and me. How dare we choose the haute couture brie eaters of Europe over the shaggy steel worker. Shame upon the softhands who’d choose a carafe of wine over a sixer of Schlitz. The fact that President Trump’s so stupid he surely believes Obama DID sign a treaty with the Mayor of Paris doesn’t fix the blood vessels in my eye.
Let’s not forgive this pile of lies.
Beyond the severe energy restrictions inflicted by the Paris Accord, it includes yet another scheme to redistribute wealth out of the United States through the so-called Green Climate Fund – nice name – which calls for developed countries to send $100bn to developing countries all on top of America’s existing and massive foreign aid payments.
…[and] obligate the United States to commit potentially tens of billions of dollars of which the United States has already handed over $1bn – nobody else is even close; most of them haven’t even paid anything – including funds raided out of America’s budget for the war against terrorism.
There are no energy restrictions in the Agreement. NONE, zero. As for the Green Fund, we maxed out our pledge at $3 billion, toward the goal of $100 billion. $66 billion of it has already been collected from other nations. And “Every country with an official pledge has made a contribution, and nearly all have already paid a larger share of their total pledge than the United States.” And saying that this effort – or any effort – to address Global Warming will shortchange the Joint Terrorism Task Force or something is all sorts of gutless puke.
This is Trump’s own man-made disaster. Essentially every syllable that came out of his privy-gasket mouth was equal parts insulting and walloping horseshit. It’s hard for me to describe what a foul mess this dead president is.
