“When you hear about the tough phone calls I’m having, don’t worry about it.”
“Just don’t worry about it. They’re tough. We have to be tough. It’s time we’re gonna be a little tough, folks. We’re taken advantage of by every nation in the world, virtually. It’s not gonna happen anymore.”
Love love love LOVE it. Perfect response. You hearing rumors that the President yelled at the Aussie prime minister on the phone? You hearing he hung up on someone? You hearing he’s being tough as balls and ruffling feathers from the confines of the Oval Office? Don’t fucking worry about it.
Anyone who thinks every little thing needs to be transparent is a fucking moron. There are degrees of transparency required for any democracy, but what the President says on a private phone call to another world leader ain’t part of that transparency. Do I WANT to know what he said? Of course I do. I wanna listen to every second of that call. I bet it’s electric, hilarious, all over the map. I bet the Donald has some new “You’re fired!” phrase he uses but in Presidential context and to demean other world leaders and I don’t just want to know what it is I NEED it like you need the #BarstoolRundown to breathe.
But I’m not a dumbass. I’m not a naive little bitch. I’m not bitching and moaning and complaining about every little thing. Is Trump tough on the phone with Australia’s prime minister? Don’t worry about it.
