WARNING – yes breast feeding. Better not get caught by Trump. You know all about ICE, now watch out for MILK too, or else.
This is Trump’s newest agency of repression. M(others) IL(legally breast feeding their) K(ids), aka MILK.
Donald Trump claims to know what is best for very young children because he shares an IQ level with them, and also, because of his vast experience with women’s breasts as a quasi-sexual predator.
So, while Trump romps through Europe this week and also serves as a giant hot air balloon high above London with throngs of anti-Trump protesters filling the streets below; and while President Trump is having tea with the Queen, known here in Trump’s America as Betsy Windsor, the world’s richest welfare cheat, cheating British taxpayers out of billions of pounds to support the life styles of the called Royal Family …
And while he will then go off for a weekend of golf on one of his Scottish golf courses, while we will pay for his extravagant travel so he can use the Presidency to promote his personal business interests and have fun doing it …
Back here in America, Trump’s minions are going after mothers who have the audacity to breast feed their infant children instead of buying inferior formula from the giant companies who are Trump supporters.
Don’t think for a moment President Trump only goes after immigrant children; he’ll go after anyone or any children who stand in the way of his mindless view of the American way of doing business.
President Trump is our ANTI-Robin Hood. Give the rich everything!
So, it is more than worth devoting an episode of Trump’s America to breast feeding, because the issue is important, and it emphasizes so well the LACK of quality which is the Trump Presidency.
So let’s dig a little into this issue and see what we find. After giving them off last week for July 4th, our #1 media partner The New York Times is back to assist with this week’s episode. BIG time both with a recent front-page story followed later by a lead editorial. Serious stuff.
Let’s dig in beginning with NYT headline Monday …
“U.S. Delegation Disrupts Accord On Breast Feeding”
The article begins …
“A resolution to encourage breast-feeding was expected to be approved quickly and easily by the hundreds of government delegates who gathered this spring in Geneva for the United Nations-affiliated World Health Assembly.”
“Based on decades of research, the resolution says that mother’s milk is healthiest for children and countries should strive to limit the inaccurate or misleading marketing of breast milk substitutes.”
“Then the United States delegation, embracing the interests of infant formula manufacturers, upended the deliberations.”
ENCORE …. “Then the United States delegation, embracing the interests of infant formula manufacturers, upended the deliberations.”
How bad is that? EXACTLY as bad as it sounds!
CORRECTION … even worse because as BAD as that decision by the Trump Administration is, it reveals a far deeper cancerous bias that undermines decision after decision since Trump has been our so-called President.
Why this matter highlights the deeper sickness and viciousness that motivates Donald Trump is its blatantly brazen ATTACK on an undeniable health issue in which infants, deprived of their mother’s milk in favor of formula, have been PROVEN to suffer detrimental lifelong consequences.
We don’t have a President in The White House; we either have a MORON or a MONSTER or a Moron who is a Monster. Take your choice.
Back to the article ….
“American officials sought to water down the resolution by removing language that called on governments to “protect, promote and support breast-feeding” and another passage that called on policymakers to restrict the promotion of food products that many experts say can have deleterious effects on young children.”
When that failed they just tried harder …
“When that failed, they turned to threats, according to diplomats and government officials who took part in the discussions. Ecuador, which had planned to introduce the measure, was the first to find itself in the cross hairs.”
This is our so-called government in action with Trump as President.
It gets worse …
“The Americans were blunt: If Ecuador refused to drop the resolution, Washington would unleash punishing trade measures and withdraw crucial military aid. The Ecuadorean government quickly acquiesced.”
“The showdown over the issue was recounted by more than a dozen participants from several countries, many of whom requested anonymity because they feared retaliation from the United States.”
The Times turned to even wider issues in which this issue fits “nicely” (sic) and so will we. The Times goes on to note Trump’s WAR on health and good solid government policy knows no bounds …
WHATEVER BIG BUSINESS WANTS big business gets from Trump.
“During the same Geneva meeting where the breast-feeding resolution was debated, the United States succeeded in removing statements supporting soda taxes from a document that advises countries grappling with soaring rates of obesity.”
That’s right, OBESITY is good for selling JUNK food so Fat Donald Trump is an advocate for obesity; it is good for big business corporate profits!
If you are not DISGUSTED by what Trump is doing to destroy any semblance of American decency and leadership, check yourself into a mental asylum and put yourself on the waiting list for a BRAIN transplant as that is your only hope. There is much more to this article but I have only so much space and a deadline too. Let me turn to The Times editorial: “Why Breast-Feeding Scares Mr. Trump.”
I will take time for just the first two paragraphs …
“The push by United States delegates to the World Health Organization to water down or scrap a simple resolution meant to encourage breast-feeding in underdeveloped countries was many things — bullying, anti-science, pro-industry, anti-public health and shortsighted, to name a few.”
“But it was not surprising. In fact, it’s just one of several recent examples of the Trump administration’s zeal for badgering weaker countries into tossing public health concerns aside to serve powerful business interests. The baby formula industry is worth $70 billion and, as breast-feeding has become more popular in more developed countries, the industry has pinned its hopes for growth on developing nations.”
What more do I need to add?
We are all VICTIMS of the Trump Presidency!
