    What I have witnessed from the media over the past few weeks is that some show the attitude they hope president Trump will fail next week at the Singapore summit with the North Korean leader  Kim Jong Un.   Yes, it is apparent that many dislike our president., and would like to see him fail at anything he undertakes. It is very clear people that dislike president Trump becoming are becoming increasingly frustrated with his good job performance.  However, it appears their pure hate for Trump has made them void of even a smidge of common sense?

    My question -   So are you on the side that is hoping Trump fails in Singapore and North Korea remains a threat or are you hoping he once again solves a "HUGE' problem?

      Sadly, I think that for far too many the costs of failure don't matter - the only thing that is of interest is the failure of the President in all that he attempts.

        Isn't that what Mitch McConnell and his cronies wanted for Obama?  And they did keep him from nominating a Supreme Court judge as was his right.  Shoe? Other foot?  tongue

          No Randy, it was not his, (Pres. Obama), Right, it was his prerogative, albeit a prerogative qualified by the need of consent.

          The "shoe" is right where it belongs - on the foot of the vengeful. I think being an "obstructionist" can have multiple inferences -- some of which might even be rationalized as patriotic, but being "vengeful" has only one, and it is not flattering, and, it is far from being patriotic.

      Ah geez Sharlee01, what the hell kind of thread title was that - relative to the point of your OP? I find it hard to believe you actually think that - or else I wouldn't have even bothered to comment here.

      Surely something like; "Many would like to see Pres. Trump fail than succeed at reducing the N. Korean Threat" would have been much more credible.

      Unless of course you can support that ant-Trump folks really would rather be nuked.

        It does seem over the top but the quest for the 'I told you so' moment is a very powerful motivator.

        Does anyone want to be personally nuked? Of course not. Would some mind throwing blame around if someone else was? I can name a few I'd think guilty of such if the unthinkable happened.

        But, I'm impressed with Trump on this one. If it were a Democrat in office heading into this the right would be screaming as hard as they did in Iran (whether justified then, or not). So we need to let the opposition speak,fantasize an 'I told you so' scenario and pray it never comes. This is a dangerous course, fraught with fears of what Un's true goals are. I didn't think Trump was up to the task.

          Thank you for your comment. And I hope it did not offend. The comment was meant to motivate, but for my perspective not to say I told you so. Just wanted to bring two things to light. One that we have a serious division going on in the country, and that the media may well be part of the cause. It's very clear we all have our own reasons for "digging in". But when it comes to the important things like world peace, time to come together.

        Thank you for your comment,  I realize my title is alarming, it was meant to be. I wanted to provoke true thought on the subject.  It's clear there is a "great divide" in the country that resulted in the election of Trump.  The divide has become much worse over the past year and a half. My title was to make one think.  Ask themselves the question  -  " Has my dislike for this president gone too far, and perhaps my dislike for this man is disrupting my thought prosses?"

        I have noted that no one has really addressed my leadoff opinion on how the media has reported on the presidents Singapore summit.  It's clear much of what is being reported had been negative, and for lack of a better word "glib". 

        No, I do not believe anyone hopes to be nuked if it meant a Trump failure.   My question was to hit at the heart of a problem. Which appears to be a strong displeasure for our president. A displeasure that has become so depleting that "some" have lost their ability to think clearly. I also wanted to point out media has the ability to creep in and impede ones thought process.

        I am pleased my question provoke thought and comments.  It's apparent some went deeply into their protective shell, others became defensive and somewhat insulted. However, it's also clear some faced the problem head-on.

            I could write a book. Do you find it normal for a comedian to call a perfect stranger a Cun-? Then go on to insinuate incest between a father and daughter?  How about you, are you getting it on with your daddy?  I could say that if I want too.  Do you get my point?

            Let's not forget Kathy Griffen, holding a severed head with the likeness of Trump or Robert Deniro claiming he would like to punch Trump in the face?

            And then there is "Jake" he posts on this forum daily, feeling he has the right to post any vile though he can think up about Trump.

            It is very clear to me many are displeased with Trump and have in some case lost the ability to think clearly.    If you don't find this a problem, that's your prerogative.

            Have you not noticed that many on the left exhibit their displeasure with vile insults, and socially unacceptable actions?  Oh well, Not here to convince you of anything, but I think I have answered your question. My initial question was to cause controversy, to make people think about  a very divisive politics that has divided the country.  I appreciate your question.

              Hmm, so you apparently define engaging in insults as displaying an inability to think clearly.

              Mika Brzezinski
              CO-HOST, “MORNING JOE”
              “dumb as a rock” “Crazy” “low I.Q.” “was bleeding badly from a face-lift” “had a mental breakdown while talking about me” “crazy and very dumb” “clown” “very insecure”“off the wall” “mess!” “not very bright” “neurotic” “has gone wild with hate”

              Maureen Dowd
              COLUMNIST, THE NEW YORK TIMES
              “Crazy” “wacky” “A neurotic dope!”

              Erick Erickson
              CONSERVATIVE COMMENTATOR
              “total low life” “a major sleaze and buffoon”

              Of course, I could sit here all night copying and pasting insults thrown by just one man, a man you think is a great President, but who obviously is not thinking clearly by your own definition. Maybe you think he should be held to a lower standard than a comedian or actor? Or, maybe you need to rethink this notion that his detractors aren't thinking clearly?

              Me, I wonder if a person who believes Robert De Niro should be held to a higher standard than our president is thinking clearly. But, hey, maybe I'm just blinded by hate to think it should be the other way around.

                  Yet ,you stand silently by while Trumps entire family is denigrated by your own people and you want what , an explanation , here's a question , are you all as  "feckless" as what's her name  , the unfunny one ?

                  On the left you have ALL so truly embraced hypocrisy as to give every other human frailty the equivalence  of a mosquito bite.   If I were of the left at this point I might start a national movement for "Hug a Hurt Liberal ".

                Not sure if you read my original question or any of my comments on this thread? 

                Pretty Panther -"See, I have a problem with this, but maybe I'm not thinking clearly. Would you be so kind as to provide a specific example of someone displaying that they "have lost their ability to think clearly" as a result of their displeasure with Trump?'

                I do find resorting to insults as an inability to think clearly. Whether it be the President of the United States or anyone else.  Please read my posts I did not state or insinuate the president has the right to insult anyone.  Your counterattack is baseless.  It shows a lack of understanding of my statement. I would not have given incidence if not asked too...   Here is my comment in response to your asking me a question. It is apparent you have skewed the conversation by insulting me?  You assume too much. For one thing, I in no way defended Trump's insulting anyone. I have never insinuated I agree with his name calling.  I have clearly and will continue to comment on his accomplishments, and job performance.  You can continue to lash out and insult me and others. But that won't in anyway take away from our president's job performance.   You see we have a different way of looking at a president. I voted for an agenda, as I always have. I then consider is who I voted for keeping to his agenda, working on profiling it. 

                My comment --   "I could write a book. Do you find it normal for a comedian to call a perfect stranger a Cun-? Then go on to insinuate incest between a father and daughter?  How about you, are you getting it on with your daddy?  I could say that if I want too.  Do you get my point?

                Please tell me where in my statement did I hold the president to a "lower standard"?  This kind of statement is confrontational.

                Pretty panther - "Me, I wonder if a person who believes Robert De Niro should be held to a higher standard than our president is thinking clearly. But, hey, maybe I'm just blinded by hate to think it should be the other way around."

                I assume you feel you have the right to assume I hold Robert De Niro to a higher standard than the president?  Which none of my comments have implied?  You know what, I have made my point. IT is clear from your comments that I have well proved my point.  I was nothing but polite in my response, I received nothing but underlying glib insults back.  One only has to follow the progression of our posts to see our individual actions.

                  Before I answer, let me point out that stating Trump detractors would prefer to be nuked than see Trump succeed is confrontational. You set the tone for your own thread.

                  Here is how you hold the president to a lower standard. If you voted for him, you explicitly stated, with your vote that his behavior is acceptable enough to be President. If you didn't vote for him but think he's doing a wonderful job as President and hope he wins another term, you are explicitly stating his behavior is acceptable for a president. If it wasn't, you wouldn't endorse him for another term.

                  So simple. 

                  I voted for Sanders, but if he behaved like Trump I would have dropped him in a hot minute, no matter how much I liked his policies.

        Will I not supply links? My opinion was derived from the talk jocks  - Rachel Maddow, Dom Lemmon,  Joy Reid,  Shepard Smith, Morning Joe...  Last week one could literally not hear anything positive in regards to how Trump was handling not only preparation for the summit but also his lack of mental stability to handle the summit.  So, I suggest if you have a bit of time locating any videos of the above mentioned and watch a few. Or better yet just tune in today, to CNN or MSNBC

        Here is a clip from yesterday, that is so negative it's laughable to anyone on the right. It leaves me to wonder how much eggs "Ben" will wear on his face if Trump makes a positive deal. ENJOY.

          Thanks for the link and the references. I watched the MSNBC interview you linked to, and I'm a bit puzzled.

          While I think it's fair to characterize the interview as critical of Donald Trump, the questions asked by the interviewer were questions that I think any reasonable person might ask.

          Here are all the questions (edited for brevity) the host asked in the 7 minute segment:



          As I say, I think it's fair to characterize the interview as critical of Trump, but I'm struggling to see something that suggests "they hope president Trump will fail next week".

          I know you're talking about an overall feeling you get from watching a number of different things, but I assume you linked to this interview because it's representative of what you're talking about.

          I see a commentator expressing the opinion that: the administration and the president are under prepared for these meetings; alienating G7 allies just before the N. Korea meeting was a bad idea; inviting Russia back to the G8 doesn't make any sense; and suggesting the Republican party is hypocritical.

          Whether you agree with those views or not, it's standard political commentary isn't it?

          Can you help me out by explaining exactly which aspect of the interview gives you the impression that the interviewer and commentator would rather be killed in a thermonuclear blast so long as Trump fails?

            Thought it might be wise to post my original statement in regard to what I said about the media.

            "What I have witnessed from the media over the past few weeks is that some show the attitude they hope president Trump will fail next week at the Singapore summit with the North Korean leader  Kim Jong Un.   Yes, it is apparent that many dislike our president., and would like to see him fail at anything he undertakes."

            To answer your question, I was referring to the medias attitude. I will be honest. It was very evident that CNN and MSNBC had none stop interviews with people just like the link I provided. One after another
            Government retired pundit giving their own special view of why the summit could fail due to Trump's attitude, demeanor, and even mental statues. The link provided was one that I had just viewed a day or so ago.  My statement was meant to be a bit hyperbolic, to get the reader to stop and think. I can see it has caused a stir.

            A quick question.  If something positive comes from the summit. Will the pundits that weighed in reevaluate their opinion of how the President handled the "deal"? Does all the negativity really help to gap the "great divide"?

              Sharlee , I have watched enough media in the three to four  years of  campaign and presidency to know that a large part of our  media  is not only promoting , planning and  demonstrably  hoping for   Trump failure BUT are igniting something in the conservative party that they will never be able to extinguish , a hatred of this  news media .

              From out right phoniness , AND phoniness  is there whether anyone from the left admits it or not , to outright Trump resistance , They are planning and profitizing resistance ,  obstruction ,and even impeachment .  One day with the likes of JIm Acosta from CNN and I want all of this media forever out of the white house .

              How little the younger alt-left truly understands about a phony media constant spewing lies that is somehow their adoring equivalent of "free speech " , I'd rather we had NO news media than the morons behind acrylic tables with corporate labeled coffee cups spewing forth  cronyism , plagiaristic and hateful party B.S. .WE have to ask ourselves as Americans  which is more destructive ? A majority fake news or none at all ?

                  How does Trump's statement "I love the uneducated" compare to Kennedy's statement?   Both statements reached the ears that they were meant to reach.  His words were spoken in a joyous tone, a ton that was welcoming to all.  Actually, he was telling the entire crowd how "they" were victorious.  Yes, he did say he loves the uneducated. He openly addressed a segment of our American citizens that no other politician has addressed.  Do you realize we have a population of ill-educated?  Well, Trump does.  It was maybe the first time any politician considered them...   Compare Trump's statement to Hillary's famous statement that will be remembered long after she is gone.

                  A true democracy is where the voice of the people is heard. All of the people, even the "basket of deplorable's"...Hillary Clinton - Gala in New York City on Sept. 9, 2016
                  Her words reached many ears from a lofty pedestal looking down. Condemning, belittling... Just the tone of her voice was proof of her disdain.

                  Hint, one more reason why he won. He promised to be a voice for all the people, he made promises to fix things that no other politician considered needed fixing. But the middle class and poor knew just what he was talking about.

                    Yes, there is such a population. After living through the Kennedy years during a period in  America where we all believed that anything was possible, the example of his advocacy or arts and sciences and the pursuit of excellence motivated each of us to raise the bar for ourselves, not lower it. The example from the Chief Executive should be to promote a intelligent, informed and educated citizenry. I never got the impression that Kennedy was elitist in leading the American people in this direction. Hillary Clinton's statement about "deplorables" was ill-advised, and revealed some elitism that may have cost her votes.

                    I am solidly middle class and I never got the impression from Trump or his policies that he was either capable or desiring of making things better for those that are not wealthy and otherwise 'well fixed'. But, he still has time to convince more of us that this is the direction he truly wants to take us toward.

                You're not amusing today; you're scary.  You would live in a place where Trump is worshiped and fawned over and dissent is absent.  Where he can lie, attack, bully, and cheat from his place of power and no media could challenge him.  You think you know what patriotism is; you don't.  You think you understand the constitution; you don't.  You and certain other Trump supporters are ignorant of what it takes to keep power in check.

              Thanks for the clarification.

              Most of the criticism I've seen has been, as you say, about whether Trump's is capable of representing the country's best interests in these talks, due to concerns about his capabilities.

              My personal view is that he is not in the least bit capable of adequately representing the best interests of the country in these talks. I think his egotism and greed for wealth are vulnerabilities which the N. Koreans are already exploiting with the help of the ever-resourceful China.

              But that doesn't mean I would want something terrible to happen just so I can say "told ya so". I think this is one area many people would gladly be proven wrong about Trump, but I do think that's unlikely to happen.

              Instead I think even the most modest outcome from these talks will be spun into some kind of significant agreement. In reality I think the outcome will be of little substance. Perhaps some minor concessions on either side. Maybe an agreement to play nice in the future. That type of thing. N. Korea has already made clear in recent weeks it won't entertain the idea of unilateral denuclearization, so I think something of that magnitude is unlikely, and the country has entered into (and broken) agreements before.

              So my prediction is: some minor agreement just to show they've done something, and statements about playing nice in the future. Trump and his cheerleaders will treat it as some massively significant deal. Others will look at the details and see little real substance compared to what has been done in the past.

              As I said, I'd be happy to be proven wrong.

                To cut to the chase.  I predict NK will denuclearize, and an end to the Korean War.  Will the left recognize it when it happens? Not sure, they tend to be able to rationalize and deflect very easily from reality.  When they don't  want to give the president credit, they defer and claim the problem was resolved in some other manner.  Just my opinion.

                Last night Kim signed an agreement to continue working on denuclearize.   This morning little is being said about Kim's commitment.  Will he keep to his commitment? Who knows, as a rule, NK backs out on their commitments...   But Trump can be trusted to keep his commitment to denuclearization NK. He is committed to continue the harsh sanction, and apply more if necessary.   Trump has claimed all along he would walk away if he saw the deal was going no where.  One thing about Trump, he does what he says.  If you're interested in seeing the document that was signed I have provided a link.  I guess we will have to wait a bit to see if Trump comes through with his "Huge" promise.  However, I don't think it will be long before we see results.

                  Thanks for the link.

                  Pretty much consists of what I expected: broad comments about playing nice together in the future, commitment to peace etc, some concessions on both sides that don't seem to cost too much politically.

                  To be fair I wasn't expecting much more at this stage. The most I was hoping for is that Trump doesn't give away too much. Doesn't look like he has, which is a relief, but not exactly a cause for celebration.

                  And of course, as predicted, Trump is hailing it as a major breakthrough, which I don't think it is.

                  All in all what I expected. I remain unconvinced that this will lead to a long term resolution though, as I don't believe Trump or Jong-un are personally capable of sustaining long-term cordial diplomatic relations. I suspect they'll be threatening each other with nuclear war again relatively soon. Time will tell.

                  Again, though I am very skeptical about the whole thing, I'd be delighted to be proven wrong.

                    I hope you are wrong. But I will take a wait and see attitude. It's not being reported today but last night on Shannon Bream it was announced Mike Pompeo would be traveling to NK on Thursday to follow up on the when and hows of the denuclearization.  I  will predict Trump will not let any "grass grow under his feet" on this deal.   I actually liked what I read in the short document. Simple to the point.  If the deal falls through we will have signed nothing away.  It's been reported by media that Trump said e would stop Military drills if all progress smoothly.   I did not note anything of that sort in the agreement. 

                    I did like that Trump took the peninsula's peace into consideration, and offered Kim a path to a better economy. Not just tossing some cash at him, but a solution that would help him change paths. A possible solution that would bring his country out of seclusion so to say.

    This thread is simplistic and insulting, but what's new? Certain Trump supporters on these forums refuse to acknowledge that most criticism of Trump is legitimate. Instead of acknowledging his obvious faults, they whine and cry "TDS." Yes, some are over the top in their criticism. If they are factually incorrect, address it. If they are simply hyperbolic, well, that's nothing new and works both ways.

      He is best buds with Putin and conspired with him to fix the election

      Meanwhile, the best employment picture in decades is ignored
      Kim to the negotiating table is ignored
      Returning states rights to them is ignored
      China talking on trade is ignored

        Your comment - " A displeasure that has become so depleting that "some" have lost their ability to think clearly.

        See, I have a problem with this, but maybe I'm not thinking clearly.  Would you be so kind as to provide a specific example of someone displaying that they "have lost their ability to think clearly" as a result of their displeasure with Trump?"

        I gave you three clear examples.   

        "Aw, Sharlee, you specifically mentioned three people in your explanation of why you think some people are not "thinking clearly":  Samantha Bee (by inference), Kathy Griffin, and Jake, none of whom are media.

        I in no way was insulted by your question, I just answered it.  Did I insult them by using their statements as examples? You're laughable... You asked for examples. What were you expecting? 

        "As for my last statement, you seem to be misinterpreting. As I previously stated, if Trump achieves denuclearization of North Korea, I will give credit where it is due.

        Again I did not in any way try to push my opinion on you. I  gave a lengthy explanation of my own opinion just as you have done below.  We certainly have different views in regards to Trump. I appreciate his job performance, and just not interested in his personal personality or private life. I explained my views very clearly.  Once again we have opposite views. Not sure I can say much more without being unkind.  I am not going to go there.  Just don't play that game.

Nice one, you went all the way back to Bush. You did not have to go that far in the past to deflect on presidential mistakes.

            You could have used this sad example:   "you can keep your doctor" or this is a classic:: " Syria do not cross that red line":  And then when the line was crossed, he did nothing. Let me correct myself, he made us sit by and witness pure genocide over 500,000 men women and children killed, and millions of refugees.  How about this gem?  Making a ridiculous deal with Iran supplying them with billions of dollars to support terrorism.  Were you outraged over any of these examples?  You see why job performance is important?  So far Trump has a great job performance. If he makes major mistakes as the above mentioned, I will be furious, I will be incensed. I will not defend his job performance. I will not vote for him a second term. It's called common sense, yet so many looked past Obama's poor job performance, make excuses for huge mistakes. It's hypocritical, it's nonsensical.

                    You stopped conversing because you had too. You made a fool of yourself. And I am sure it won't be the last time? One good thing, You can't delete your ramblings. Anyone can follow the thread and see the how it progressed  I  made every attempt to discourage you from continuing.  Courtesy,  you started an argument and lost it. You were cornered and made no sense. Nice try, but you made a fool of yourself. Put your fingers in your ears and hum...  Or better yet read the thread,  and face the fact you were argumentive, deflective, and glib, and in the end tried to deflect all your shortcomings on to me.  My comments where appropriate to the conversation.

    Sharlee , it's  only one sided ;

    That is the liberal understanding of all politics , one sided , it's not so much only one sided since Trump was elected as it is one mindset .   Ask them a neutral question , its going to be a one sided response , hate .   Trump Hate .     All else is politically forgotten , they know nothing but Trump hate now .
    They could be handed heaven and the response will be "Thanks but I hate Trump ".

      Horse, For me it is so difficult to comprehend this kind of stupidity.  Sorry, no other word will suffice.  I guess I am not accustomed to dealing with this type.  It's like a horse  (no pun intended)  with blinders, they run like hell, but don't have any idea what is going on behind and beside them. Just keep to one end, winning, running blindly.  My god is this what we have to  put with up for the next 6 plus years? 

      And I m not sure if it hit the left yet, we that like the path the country is on are not ever going to put up with same old BS again.  Or maybe they do realize it,  this might be one of the reasons they just can't move on.

          I will not be pleased, I would be disappointed to return to same old same old. It would confirm my belief that we have become a society of idiots.  As it stands today the country is striving underTrump.  Not about to count all the ways...  However, it should be visible to anyone that has common sense.  So, not saying I would be surprised that many would cut off their nose to get even with their face. Did you note what the subject of this thread was?  Guess it would prove my point that hate for the president has taken over some ability to have a clear thought process.      Although at my age such change would not affect me.  I came from I period where many made sure to provide for their future,  went with the flow.  Never cared for a what can you give me Government. Always like the challenge of what could I do to be successful on my own.  So I hope I have answered your question.

          How will you feel if all returns to status quo?

            Kudos to you, we just have differing understanding of what " change" means and its benefits. That is why you are Right and I am Left. Midterms have historically given the advantage to the party currently out of power.

              I appreciate your view. And you are very right historically the Dems would be expected to get their control back.  But, I ask is anything typical with Trump in the WH? This is another wait and see.  In my opinion, I think it will be close.

    I'll be very surprised if Dumb and Dumber comes to any sort of agreement at the meeting. Either they'll both suck up to each other, or Spanky will storm away from Singapore in a huff as he did at the G7 Summit. I'm still pissed he acted as Putin's minion in begging for Putin's mob to be allowed back in. What a wuss!!

      Not sure about the "sucking up"?  Feb 2018 - President Trump added to already harsh sanctions a set of new sanctions against North Korea.  Signaling that he returned to his aggressive attempt to put pressure on the government of Kim Jong-un.  The sanctions,  target 28 ships registered in China, and seven other countries, are intended to close a stubborn loophole to cut off North Korea’s imports of oil, and exports of coal.  He also has worked with Cina to comply with these sanctions.  NK is feeling the pain of a very quickly collapsing economy.

      And if you actually watched any of the goings on at the 7, you would have seen some sucking up to Trump.  He appeared to conduct himself as the strong competent leader of our nation.

      Very true none of us know what will come from the summit. But one thing we do know no other president stepped up to the plate with anything that stopped NK from developing nukes. I am hoping he solves this problem once and for all.

      Russia has a seat at the UN?  A bit hypocritical to feel they should not be heard at the G7?  Now my opinion they should not be allowed at either until they start acting civil.   

      I see you continue to call names? Do you think Trump got to be president by being dumb?  Did he just fall into a multi-million dollar business? It appears he has accomplished much in his life through his intelligence.

    Trumps North Korea policy polls at 72 % approval , even if it fails he wins ,Trump himself 52 % approval , what doesn't the obstruction party get about that ?    You are behind the eight ball and standing proud , while the cue  ball nails the eight ball , keep up the obstruction though , you're winning ..................Next , what  Twilight Zone liberal resistance comes next ?
    More jobs ?    Better economy ?   Lower illegal immigration rates ?  ICE destroying MS 13 ?  Infrastructure jobs ?

    "While advisers say Trump has been reviewing briefing materials, the president insists his gut instincts will matter most when he gets in the room with Kim. He told reporters he thinks he will know almost immediately whether a deal can be made, saying: "I will know, just my touch, my feel. That's what I do."

    Gut instincts, huh? That is exactly what has me worried and concerned.
    What is he hiding behind all the bravado?

    So right! President Trump went over to North Korea and solved a problem no president before him has even attempted. Now, as President Trump said, North Korea is no longer a threat. All it took was a little talking.

    People do not fully appreciate this amazing President.

      So true, we really don't appreciate his knack for breaking the law.  Now the NY AG is suing him and his family with a 41 page listing of the wrongs committed under Spanky's leadership of the Trump Foundation.

      That's right! All he had to do was acquiesce to NK''s long-standing desire to be an equal player on the world stage with no pre-conditions and with glowing words of flattery! And Kim agreed to talk more about a possible future agreement of some kind!  Wow, I wonder why no previous president thought of this. He truly is amazing!

        ":no pre-conditions "  Not sure if you have been awake for a week or so?  Over, and over, and over the president as well as his Secretary of State has repeated on several occasions the condition is COMPLETE DENUCLEARIZATION OF NORTH KOREA.  Perhaps you have a mental block?

        And by the way, it is disgusting none of the previous presidents did not think of this. If they did we would not have a NK sitting with 70 nukes, and the capability to blow us to holy hell?

        Do you ever deal in facts or do you keep yourself in a constant state of unawareness?
