Swagger is arrogant confidence. Right word, wrong definition.


Hopefully hstory judges him for the festering pustule he is.

No idea what it's about but " pride, humility" I'm missing the connection, is that like a humble brag? Or is he talking about to different situations?

Time, 2018
The State Department made a surprising announcement on Monday, and it had nothing to do with international affairs. The branch of the federal government had rebranded itself as “The Department of Swagger.”

The re-branding campaign started when Secretary of State Mike Pompeo launched an Instagram account on Monday, posting an inaugural photo and declaring that the State Department has “swagger.” So much “swagger” that the entire department needed to be renamed to properly reflect the amount of “swagger” shown in Pompeo’s photo. “Thought I’d launch my Instagram account with some @statedept #swagger,” the secretary of state wrote alongside an image of a new (hopefully) joke state department seal, which was also posted on Pompeo’s Twitter account.

This is Pompeo branding his 2024 presidential run.

"Pompeo! Bring the Swagger Back!"

Can we just give Iran Trump and his officials? I'm not even asking anything in return.
