President Donald Trump on April 9, 2018:
“It’s an attack on our country….It’s an attack on what we all stand for.”
Trump is talking about:
a) A hostile nation interfering in the 2016 election for President; or
b) A search warrant approved by a federal judge allowing law enforcement to continue an investigation into possible criminal conduct by a member of Trump’s inner circle?
L’etat c’est moi.
This might be understandable for the president of a high school student council. This is someone who has the nuclear codes. How much more can he embarrass us?
I have been restraining myself from saying what I think about the person elected by 47% of Americans to be our president. There have been so many instances where he has demonstrated his complete incompetence and lack of humanity to lead our country. This time, once again, he has passed the bar of human decency.
He said that Barack Obama did not call the families of Americans killed in contact. Anyone who pays attention, of course, knows that anything out of his mouth is probably a lie. Once again, that is a lie.
It’s one thing to admit a mistake, which Trump never does. This time, he invoked the name of his Chief of Staff, John Kelly, to support this lie. Kelly was honored by the Obama White House for his son’s sacrifice. http://talkingpointsmemo.com/news/obama-john-kelly-son-gold-star-breakfast
We have a president for whom no lie is inappropriate to attempt a justification of his deplorable behavior.
If you knew someone who engaged in this behavior, you would not hesitate to call him “scum.”
So what is your over/under on how long before today’s shooting is politicized? You can give separate numbers for the right and the left.
