In a time of crisis the president is supposed to bring us together. Donald Trump did not.

 

 

"....It’s true that you can’t always choose those who want to march in support of you, although Trump’s refusal to condemn his backing from white supremacists is appalling. Nor can it be denied that on the extreme left there are a few, like so many on the extreme right, who see violence as a means to an end. But Trump not only has failed to speak out against white nationalists, he allows them to work in his White House and mutter seditious nonsense into his all-too-susceptible ears.

 

As he spoke on Saturday afternoon he was unable to out-and-out condemn the neo-Nazis in Charlottesville without diluting his censure, saying there was “hatred, bigotry and violence” but adding “on many sides, on many sides.” And then he tweeted, “Condolences to the family of the young woman killed today, and best regards to all of those injured, in Charlottesville, Virginia. So sad!”

 

Best regards? So sad? So lame....

 

....on Saturday, we saw into your soul, Donald Trump. And there was nothing there."

I know this will offend many, but Donald Trump shares responsibility for today. He's given these pigs validation. He's their barn master.

Duke has been around a long time, but his profile does rise and

fall quite frequently, especially after he failed to be elected to

high political office in Louisiana. But if there's any kind of

white supremacy dust up, you can bet ole Dave will be there

ASAP. 


Curse Sir Walter Raleigh, he was such a stupid get.

A year ago most of us had never heard of Steve Bannon, Breitbart or
the alt right. But the Ku Klux Klan by any name is still white supremacy.

No, Mr. President, not "many sides." There is one side with nazi flags and nazi salutes. America is not on that side.

Putin gets thanked.  McConnell gets chewed out.  Go figure.

 

How about staffing the State Department with some real diplomats and get an ambassador to South Korea?

North Korea, Venezuela, Russia and all the others are what happens when an incompetent, ignorant amateur fills his administration with other incompetent, ignorant rank amateurs.  Not to mention, running off the experienced professionals and leaving thousands of positions vacant.

Former U.S. Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul:

 

"...the comment from Trump proves that the president doesn’t know anything about foreign diplomacy.

 

“Our diplomats, professional staff, and military serving in Russia provide Washington with invaluable information about Russia,” McFaul continued. “Imagine wanting to know less about Russia’s military modernization! That’s what Trump praised today.

 

Imagine wanting to know less about Russian foreign policy intentions and plans! That’s what embassy personnel reductions will do.

Imagine wanting to have less capability to gather data about dangerous transnational diseases originating in Russia! Trump seems to want that.

Imagine dissing Americans — patriots serving our country under difficult conditions in Russia — to praise Putin. Our president did today.”

Kelly keeps hiding Trump's phones so he can't tweet, but then Trump makes staff go out & buy him new ones. Has probably bought 10 this week.

".... foreign officials characterized the American president as erratic, ignorant, and “something of a laughing stock among Europeans at international gatherings.”

 

....Trump’s obsession with his predecessor. “It’s his only real position,” one European diplomat said.

“He will ask: ‘Did Obama approve this?’ And if the answer is affirmative, he will say: ‘We don’t.’ He won’t even want to listen to the arguments or have a debate.

He is obsessed with Obama.”

 

...aside from the reckless rhetoric, Trump’s policy towards North Korea is surprisingly similar to Obama’s.....

ChristineHoard--According to Google, Joni Ernst was elected Iowa Senator in 2014.  Tammy Duckworth was elected Illinois Senator in 2016.

Regardless of who got there first, Duckworth is a true combat veteran.  Ernst and her campaign and others tend to over dramatize her "combat veteran" status strictly for political reasons.

My local paper had an announcement re: Jeff Duncan's annual Faith and Freedom BBQ ($35 per head) to raise campaign funds.  He generally gets about 20-25% more votes than his Democratic opponent, so he gives a lot of the money to other Republicans.

 

Regardless, this year Joni Ernst is the keynote speaker.  Joe Arpaio was the speaker last year.  The announcements refer to her as "first woman combat veteran" to serve in Senate.  Technically she is a "combat veteran," but it is not a term I would use and many others resent it being politicized as she and the GOP have done.

 

Didn't Tammy Duckworth get elected the same time as Joni Ernst?  If so, Joni would be one of the first, not the first. 

 

$35 for BBQ?  Faith and freedom shouldn't cost that much.  Whatever, I wouldn't have paid a nickel to hear Joe Arpaio speak last year.

yeah, absolutely no liberal hollywood celeb plays golf. :lol:

 

Are you telling me that if I go back to old posts when Obama was President you never complained he was golfing too much?  

 

I know that MM mentioned that many times about Obama and clearly he is a hypocrite since Trump golfs more than any President in US History.
