President Trump stealthily went from Mar-a-Lago to Afghanistan on Thanksgiving Day  | USA TODAY

President Donald Trump stealthily flew to Afghanistan on Thanksgiving to serve food to the troops and meet with Afghan President Ashraf Ghani.


Air Force One, the plane Trump took from Andrews to Florida Tuesday evening, remained parked on the tarmac at Palm Beach International Airport as part of the subterfuge.

Air Force One landed in the dark, with interior lights off and shades drawn. Trump ate turkey with the troops and met with Afghan President Ashraf Ghani. After about three and a half hours, Air Force One was wheels up for its return flight to the U.S.

    The Trump-Rocky photo-shopped fiction is the perfect metaphor for Trumpism and what the Trump Cult needs in order to maintain that fiction. 
    What is the Trump Lie that helps sustain the Trump Cult? The Trump lie is the illusion that Trump is muscular, buff, fierce, disciplined enough, focused enough and dedicated enough to have a body like Rocky's. 
    What is the truth about Trump? That Trump is a fat, sloppy, undisciplined, obsessive-compulsive, narcissistic, criminal old man who can't put away the greasy foods or focus on anything but his own pleasure, entertainment and greed.

    Dodges the draft, steals from veterans' charities, pulls money from military budgets for his non-existent wall vanity project. . . BUT makes a huge photo op out of one of the 2 or 3 times he's ever visited the troops in his 4 years just as he becomes mired in yet another ethical and legal scandal. "Quietly visits the troops". . .ha!

    He gave up mar a Lago for Afghanistan? Wow that speaks volumes, the kind of man to do that just for a few moments with those soldiers during this holiday season will get him so many votes. Helping others while helping yourself, now that's how you kill two birds with one stone. I'm going to start a slow clap, please join me.
