    Can You Believe This? It's True!
    The White House ordered the name of the USS McCain covered by a tarp during Trump's visit to Japan. The sailors were told to cover the name of the ship on their caps. Those who had the ship name on their caps were not admitted to the ceremony. There is no end to this bozo's narcissism.

    Verified by the Wall Street Journal.

    Reported this morning that an aid requested this from the Pentagon, unknown to the dufus, but are his aids that worried about pleasing the boss? That's pretty nuts to me, but par for the course it seems for this insane WH!

    yes it was a kiss a$$ underling presuming what Trump would want. The move doesn't only disrespect McCain ;it also disrespects all the sailors assigned to the boat .

    unfortunately too many people are taking their cues from the President . The down side to him being President is that he is a disgusting human .

    U.S. Indo-Pacific Command was listed as to having given the order. Does not seem the White house issued the order. just someone in Navy over thinking and over stepping

    and now the Navy is saying it did not happen. Does anyone have photo evidence or maybe testimonial from one of the crew ?

    We've had worse.

    In his memoirs, longtime Johnson aide George Reedy painted an ugly portrait of LBJ, accusing him of being a womanizing, perverted drunkard who delighted in having conversations with people while he sat on the toilet for the sole purpose of making them uncomfortable and bullying his staff to the point of sadism. Johnson was especially fond of whipping out his manhood, which he’d dubbed “Jumbo,” in mixed company. There is even a story, possibly apocryphal, that he urinated on a Secret Service agent’s leg, claiming it was his “prerogative.” Johnson’s behavior could be so reprehensible that it has been suggested that he was likely mentally ill, possessed of more “‘grandiose narcissism” than any other president in history.

    At least LBJ spoke in full sentences and didn't tweet.

    Must be a scary place to work when you have to cater to the boss to that extent. Unless you really believe the boss had nothing to do with it. With this boss you can never tell.

    So the solution is for the American people, having passed on the option of electing Saint Clinton, to vote in that paragon of virtue, Joe Biden?

    Finding a bold, efficient, self-controlled, ethical, and high-character president is a tough undertaking. All this whining from the "vote Clinton" crowd gets old. If democrats want to complain about it, they might want to nominate a genuinely viable alternative.

    In the meantime, both dems and repubs want to vote in infrastructure spending with, as usual, no idea of how to pay for it other than more borrowing. Every dem pres candidate has endorsed AOC's loony "Green New Deal", projected to cost a ridiculously impossible 90 trillion dollars. The national debt is now about 200 thou for every federal income tax payer. A day of reckoning is coming.

    This whole thread illustrates what is tricky in American politics. It begins with,
    Can You Believe This? It's True!
    , and ends with a statement that the WSJ had verified the story. Then it is pointed out that, no, it is not true, and so the WSJ must have had it wrong. Stories in the media seem to grow with a life of their own. By the time the truth comes out, everyone has grown weary of hearing about it and no longer cares. A careful, professional, unbiased media would be a wonderful thing.

    "The Navy's spokesman, Adm. Charlie Brown, wrote on Twitter that the ship's name was not obscured on Memorial Day at the time of President Trump's visit.

    "The name of USS John S. McCain was not obscured during the POTUS visit to Yokosuka on Memorial Day," Adm. Charlie Brown tweeted. "The Navy is proud of that ship, its crew, its namesake and its heritage."

    A request to do so had been sent from the WH.

    Isn't that what starts these boneheaded media frenzies in the first place? Some boneheaded words or antics by the WH?
