Woooo.

Now watching Dem's who called Bush a warmonger for starting two wars, Obama a saint for starting 4 after his nobel peace prize call Trump bad for ending 2.

a) even if I agree with the ultimate goal of getting the US out of the Middle East, (If we stop funding Israel too) this isnt an exit strategy, its more of Trump's Russian bootlicking.

To paraphrase Trevor Noah, If Trump WERE a Russian Manchurian Candidate, how would his behavior be any different?

I'm not saying I would be sad to see us end our presence in the Middle East, (As long as we stop supporting Israel as well) but we're pretty much doing everything that helps Russia right now.


I see about 4 likely scenarios
a) Trump is really beholden to Russia/Putin -- either they have massive blackmail info on him, or he really is some sort of puppet
b) Trump is actually mentally unstable, possibly early dementia. (beyond the brazen egomaniac he's always been)
c) This is more distraction. Trump's temper tantrum over the Wall didn't play nearly as well as he hoped it would. He's losing that fight, so he's making more headlines with rash moves (that even his own staff are resigning in protest over) This is just more razzle dazzle & smoke & mirrors from the biggest con-man in US Political history.
d) He's flailing about with no idea what he's doing and just hoping to draw attention away from the noose tightening around him.



In the end, those who are following the cult of personality that Trump has built up, will continue to follow him. The Republican party will continue to kiss his *** instead of actually showing an ounce of backbone. I could respect most Bush, Reagan supporters. I can no longer respect Trump supporters.

Can you explain to me the argument (with the alleged evidence) that Trump is colluding with Russia? So far all I've seen is an interview that clearly didn't go Trump's way. Policy-wise I haven't seen any actions that support this conspiracy theory.

And now the student has become the master, you see but not seeing that which cannot be seen.
