Indeed. Wacky.

Or that climate change, pollution control, and cleaner energy is a conspiracy.

Or that hat the press is the enemy of the people.

I do wonder if Trump (as noted in the video) is really that dumb IN THIS MATTER. Cause you know who is really cheering on this matter? Energy CEO’s and their shareholders. Here we have POTUS telling his followers to use a less efficient product that will enrich these companies while costing the consumer more. And does so with lies.

I think I spent about $12 on light bulbs in the last 2 years and I live in a 2000 foot two story house.

So it's treason to pay Iran back frozen assets (delivered on pallets according to Fox) but it's OK to pay them $15 billion to comply with an agreement? Can't wait to hear Tucker and Hannity explain why this is OK.

Yeah, he scraps Obama's deal with Iran, saying it "the worst deal ever", only to capitulate to the same deal, giving them more money, just so now he can have his name on the deal.

I wouldn't be surprised if he tries some backchannel deal that winds up coming to light later. He's so desperate for a foreign affairs victory he's going to try anything.

Like when Reagan sold weapons to Iran via Israel so he could pay a band of murdering/raping thieves in Nicaragua without the public's knowledge?

Classic GOP strategy.

Yeah except Reagan's cabinet were crooks who sort of knew what they were doing. The possibilities for disaster with this scattershot team of "acting"s and other various riff raff are endless.

Anyone hear Pompeo may be doing double duty as SofS and NSA? Yeah because those are both part time jobs.

The GOP wants to go back to a monarchy, huh? OK. Let's put Bill Clinton or Obama on the throne and see how they like it. Fuckers.

Primary differences:

Under Nixon: Henry Kissinger received his BA degree summa cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa in political science from Harvard College in 1950, where he lived in Adams House and studied under William Yandell Elliott. He received his MA and PhD degrees at Harvard University in 1951 and 1954, respectively.

Under Trump: National Security Adviser candidates learned Political Science by playing Risk ... and frequently losing.

That's why I'm a fan of going with the new normal rather than trying to put the genie back in the bottle... because the genie can't truly be put back... even if the Democrats were to roll things back to the old normal, when the Republicans regained control, they'd go back to the Trump normal.

Yep, Obviously Republicans overwhelmingly approve of Trump's style of governance. No reason for the next Republican President to change anything back from what Trump has done.

100%. The new normal was established before Trump even took office. To me it was more or less established when MoscowMitch came out and publicly stated that his mission was to block Obama at every turn and he did. When the democrats were in power, not once did he ever say, letís work together for the better of the US. It was all a fuck Obama and fuck the democrats. The next time the democrats are in charge they need to play the same game and tell republicans to go fuck themselves. Itís more than clear that the majority of democrats want to followe the peopleís will while the GOP wants to work for the 1% and enrich themselves in the process. Thatís why I fear that Biden winning will set everything back as he will play the same fucking game or reaching across the aisle while the GOP is playing the stabbing you anywhere I can game

Oh shit They are so disloyal.



It's like once I had a frog and he was my best friend, and one day he escaped without saying a word. True story.

Speaking of Gregory Cheadle, wasn't Don Cheadle great as War Machine? Certainly one of the greatest flying suit men.
