    What does that suggest to our allies (Europe) and enemies (Russia) about how vulnerable we are to attack?

    Oh yeah, he told his appointees to go back to school in another Tweet.  Doesn't say much about Trump's ability to pick the best and the brightest like he promised to do (and didn't apparently)

      Trump is a lying, moronic, blowhard POS. The world is laughing at him. Our allies must think American voters are the dumbest on the planet.

      The stupidity is beyond belief.

        The fact that voters in a democratic society elected him really contributes to a worldwide argument against democracy, doesn't it? Doesn't say much for our intelligence, does it? Of course, it was the electoral college, not the majority of the popular vote, but most of the world probably doesn't know that.

          I thought the electoral college was supposed to be a check against the stupidity of the masses. It didn't work!

            The Electoral College is outdated and should be done away with. We're no longer a country without instant communications. It shouldn't make a difference where one lives which determines whether their vote counts or not.

              "We're no longer a country without instant communications."

              Which has exactly nothing to do with why the electoral college was designed.  You might look back at the thoughts and words of the founding fathers, those people that wrote our constitution, for their reasoning.  You will find that it had nothing to do with the time necessary to get voting tallies to a central location and everything to do with ensuring that every state, regardless of population, had a say in the presidential elections.  Never forget that we are designed as a republic of states (the [b]United[/i] states of America) and not as a pure democracy of people.

                I don't give a big dog f**k what our Founding Fathers thought about this particular segment of the Constitution, Dan. They were not farsighted enough to understand today's country, just as they could not imagine AR15's or nuclear weapons.

                Conservatives are in some cases......too conservative!

                  Then I have no idea what your statement that "We're no longer a country without instant communications." has to do with anything.  Can you elucidate?

                  I wish I could agree with your sentiment, Randy, but I can't.  I have too much respect for the intelligence and sacrifice the writers of our Constitution to go that direction.

                  I do agree, IF we continue to refuse to properly implement the EC, with an earlier statement that a new method must be designed.

                  Your last sentence, however, is right on.

                    Okay Eso, but do you believe they envisioned ever drawing a line on what weapon a common citizen could legally posses? I know the Founding Father's were brilliant men, but there's no way they could conceive of weapons which could destroy the world. Cannons were the weapons of mass destruction during their entire lives.

              I do agree with you, but, unfortunately, the popular vote isn't any better.

            We don't know if the EC would have worked or not.  It hasn't been run as designed for over 100 years.  The founders had three choices they considered; the electoral college was the least bad.

          It was a combination of three things:

          1 - 25% - 30% of American voters were xenophobic, misogynistic racists - perfect Trump voters and had somebody they could actually vote for
          2 - Another 10% were pissed-off at the way things were and gullible to Russian propaganda
          3 - An additional 4 or 5% simply hated Clinton.enough to vote for Trump

          It doesn't say much about the intelligence of some people, which is another reason why our Founding Fathers were so brilliant in building a hybrid goverment between a republic and a democracy.

          They recognized the abuse that comes with putting too much power in the hands of too few people (which is where we are heading). But they also recognized that a pure democracy gives too much power to idiots.

      "I know more about Isis than the generals." How ignorant and conceited can Trump be!  Hope his fans believe him, because no one else does!

        Sad. You fail to recognize his genius. He certainly does, in a bigly way.

    What else could anyone possibly expect from this bizarre looking 72 year old who obviously suffers from constant eerie and extremely dangerous episodes of "Delusions of Grandeur":
