 I feel so calm and confident for our future knowing that nine months into his first real job in 71 years of a life supposedly spent Winning At Business, TOP MEN are still spoon-feeding this notwit basic concepts about Trade, Diplomacy, and Millitary matters.

 I don't think we've had a test of our democracy of this magnitude since the civil war.

And a set of keys to jangle when his attention strays.

At least George W had Condi Rice, Stanford's provost and a true Russia expert, who must have spent half a lifetime schooling George.  This team Trump 90 minutes between nap and Twitter burst is sad.

true believers are the scariest freaks in the world.  does no one ask trump why he does what he does?  they just accept it?  no challenging it?  they're that scared of him?  he's a f*cking waste of organs.  these aren't people anymore.  biologically human, but that's about it.  they care more about their own image than the country.

Reminds me of this scene from Game Change:

Sarah Palin: Portent Of Doom (funny scene from Game Change)
Youtube d3cNQo-XV7k


If you've ever wondered how disastrous a Sarah Palin presidency would be, you're witnessing a male version of one right now.

Leading from Behind not so popular now?
 
2017-09-18 08:21:01 PM  
If only we had known how staggeringly unqualified he was BEFORE the election.

"My original instinct was to pull out, and, historically, I like following my instincts," Trump said.
If only Trump's father had followed those same instincts.
 
2017-09-18 08:24:08 PM  
Trump's national security team had become alarmed by the president's frequent questioning about the value of a robust American presence around the world. When briefed on the diplomatic, military, and intelligence posts, the new president would often cast doubt on the need for all the resources.

So, about the same as a large number of Farkers.

The problem is that if Trump wasn't President, we'd have Ted Cruz.
 
2017-09-18 08:37:20 PM  
At least we can point to Bannon and Ghorka's defenestration and say that some good came of this excercise.

The country is still in grave peril, but this is an improvement. Baby steps, people. Baby steps.

Why couldn't the Rmoneys and McCains have done their run this round instead of wasting it during the Obama years? Well besides McCain being too old by now.

I'd say this was like trying to teach an 8yr old. But an 8yr old would have better chance getting it.

Just out of question, do you think other presidents eschewed having experts explain things to them?  Just, went in and made decisions based on their personal experience and gut feels?

I dunno.  It doesn't seem to matter what is going on in the white house, it all gets reported as if the president is an evil greedy moron thug.  There isn't anything good to hear, so i might as well tune it out.
 
2017-09-18 10:03:02 PM

Well, actually....

If Sarah Palin was the big lumpy clumps of fat that one trim's off the goose before roasting it.

has called Trump both an "avid" and a "voracious" consumer of intelligence.

LOL

Careful, Donny. Trying to cut back on military spending is what got JFK killed.

Maybe, just maybe, it's being reported that he's an evil greedy moron thug because he's a greedy evil moron thug.

You all laugh but this is the TLDR version.

Trump: Maybe we should pull out of Afghanistan.
Everyone else at the meeting: No.

This is the party pushing Trump away from the one thing most of us would agree with him on.
 
2017-09-18 10:57:43 PM  
A few ours in "the tank" aren't going to cure 71 years of ignorance.

Yup. This is the beginning of Trump's conversion  into a neocon chickenhawk.

BigNumber12: Trump's national security team had become alarmed by the president's frequent questioning about the value of a robust American presence around the world.

So, about the same as a large number of Farkers.


Except we were alarmed BEFORE the election.

It's not that Trump wants to pull out of Afghanistan, it's why, how, and the way he wants to do it.

As much as many ignorant people, including some right here on Fark, would like it, just throwing all remaining US personnel on a few C130s and bugging out between midnight and dawn tomorrow would be worse than just staying put.
 
2017-09-19 12:36:40 AM  
Don't care how, I want it now!
 
2017-09-19 12:53:22 AM  
Are you farking kidding me? They had a 90-minute "class" on why the US has diplomats, intelligence, and military stationed around the world, and somehow that is supposed to afford some great revelation to Trump? How could you even scratch the surface on those topics in 90 minutes?
 
2017-09-19 01:19:57 AM  
You know, there's a very good case to be made for why we should NOT be playing "project American power" at all, let alone everywhere on the planet.

"Because the president is too farking stupid to understand" is not the reason.

Would it, though?

I mean, that needs to be looked at as a realistic option.

In 50 years, if we do that, is the situation better, worse, or the same as it is now?

And if it's better or the same, why are we not doing it?

Maybe the answer is worse.  But if it's not, why are we doing what we're doing?

FTA:
""What we found is someone who has not been in government, not been in the intelligence business, not having relationship to that, but is asking an awful lot of questions and a lot of them were good questions," he said."

But don't let your narrative of Trump as an ignorant buffoon be interrupted.
