Houston (and everyone else) –We Have A Problem

By on June 9, 2019 in See It Here

For those “inside the beltway,” there is a solid memory of October, 2017 when President Trump tweeted his Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was “wasting his time” in talks with North Korea and “little rocket man.” This, as Tillerson was in Beijing having face-to-face conversations with the North Korean delegation. Within months, Tillerson decided he had better ways to spend his time. And to his credit, Trump later met with “little rocket man.”

For those still inside the beltway, as well as most of us beyond, there’s a new episode of “Trump Says.”

He tweeted on June 7 the U.S. plan to return to the moon is a waste of time and money. This, after tweeting on May 13 about the U.S. going back to the moon. This, after his vice president announced plans to do it before the end of 2024. The President also suggested we should be doing bigger things “including Mars (of which the Moon is a part).”

As is said in Great Britain, from where our president has just returned, “we find this curious.”

As is said inside the beltway, something isn’t working. And,as is said outside the beltway, this guy should have just stayed with  real estate. . .Mars not included.
