LOL. The fact that this particular lie did not die after Donnie Jr admitted to meeting with Russians in Trump Tower simply demonstrates how indoctrinated/brain washed Trump supporters are.

Lol, "patriots" blindly following orders.

So to you it would be a good thing if they followed the Trumptard in to WWIII if he told you all non-muricans were lizard-people? Because the Prez is always right.

You'd just love living in a dictatorship, right? Freedom means nothing to you. Follow the leader!

That was all Bolton’s fault? That just simply isn’t even reality.

And yes Oidiot is the one, with his weak knee approach, got us into this.

You're right; I was misremembering Bolton's role in the disaster and why I name him #2 on the blame list. Filtering and slanting intel will be his new job, but under Bush his job was to aggressively assert the neocon "solution" to that distorted intel. Under Trump, I assume he will continue to do that, too. Still, is "And yes Oidiot is the one, with his weak knee approach, got us into this" a "yes" to my questions?

Are you saying that patriots go to war? Well, Donald Trump dodged the draft. John Bolton enlisted in the National Guard and then the Reserve during Vietnam to avoid the draft because "I had no desire to die in a Southeast Asian rice paddy".

I guess that means neither are patriots.

logger was saying that it's likely to be Trump voters (or their children) who die in any war the US enters, because they're patriots and patriots serve their country and their president. I'm saying that if that's the criteria for being a patriot, then what does that say about the two draft-dodgers at the top?

John Bolton will send other people to die on foreign soil, but joined first the National Guard and then the Reserves during Vietnam to - in his own words - avoid dying on foreign soil.

Because slanting Intel is reality? I guess if you’re the only person in intel that might be realistic.

There is abundant evidence of collusion between Trump, his campaign and the Russian government. Anyone who has any loyalty to this nation can see that and is troubled by it. The Russian government whose leaders have stolen literally billions of dollars that belonged to the Russian people and whom practice murder against opponents.

It's scary to see people so full of hate and alienation that they not only refuse to acknowledge these facts, they act like they don't matter. Willing to throw 200+ years of democracy out the window because they think the piece of garbage in the White House is ready to indulge their revenge fantasies on fellow citizens.

The blind leading the blind. What a nightmare.

I don't recall logger ever using the word "right." As far as I'm aware, he considers the entire world to be left of him.

What would you consider "a bad actor"? Would, for example, a dictator who holds sham elections; who kills or imprisons his political opponents and anybody who speaks out against him; who interferes in foreign elections; who commits murder on foreign soil, uses that as a springboard on state TV to threaten people with death, and who mocks those affected by the murder be considered "a bad actor" by you?

Much of the USA trade deficit is directly caused by borrowing money. A trade war won't change that.

Not sure what you’re On about. You brought his lack of service in the military. The presidents interest in what’s best for America has nothing to do with his non military experience. The last two Dems shouldn’t have been president with your criteria, it simply isn’t reality.
