Are we all part of a giant Putin wet dream here?

As a Troo American, I will be cooking a Trump Tower Taco Bowl for Thanksgiving, commissioning Ben Garrison to repaint "Freedom From Want" featuring the Trump Family, and, of course, praying for our brave Space Force Troopers to use the Stellar Converter on Robert Mueller's genitals.

Trump did sign an executive order that all turkeys pardoned by Obama will be executed

So much for not telegraphing your actions.

This tariff war is horrible for the country but great for democrats.
 
2018-08-10 07:26:00 PM  
Can someone please stop him from having the power to issue tariffs?  He's just screwing with other countries on a whim.  I'm no fan of Turkey but this is getting insane.
 
2018-08-10 07:26:28 PM  
I suspect NATO will eventually expel Turkey, they will forfeit their EU bid (which has been a joke to this point), and embrace Russia in a "new alliance."

Good luck with that, Ottoman.
 
2018-08-10 07:26:53 PM  
I don't know what to do. About the only thing more wonderful than seeing a crowd of people rip Erdogan's limbs off live on tv would be to see it done to Trump.

The point being: wannabe totalitarian fascist scumfarking pigs can eat an entire shipping container full of dicks.

stoli n coke: You'd think he'd like a despot who openly admits to rigging elections.


You would think that, wouldn't you?

But this is part of an effort to stir unrest in Turkey, so that Putin can move into the area and get what he views as badly needed port access.


Which I think might have been the plot of a Bond movie, but these guys aren't original in their corruption.

What ever happened with their demand for the arrest of a bunch of U.S. military they accused of taking part in that bullshiat coup?

The fact that anyone isn't rooting for the US is a sign of how bad Trump is doing.  Turkey should be the obvious bad guy but because he's issuing threats via twitter you feel some sympathy.

How is this part of "national security"? He must be made to justify it, quickly or it is dismissed. This is pure BS!

Meant to mention you in my comment. Damn the lack of editing.

I mean, I _want_ to root for the U.S., but in pretty much every case, being pro-U.S. means being anti-Trump.

I have to assume Erdrogan did refused to do something Mister Putin asked for. Or maybe something is going on in Syria?

There is no mechanism in the North Atlantic Treaty to expel a member. And I doubt Turkey would leave, it costs them nothing to be there.

Worse than that, there's nothing to do if you don't care about football or don't have a big dinner with relatives.

The power of taxation properly belongs to Congress, not the President. I imagine it's possible to challenge his phoney-baloney "national security" justifications in court, but who would do that?

jso2897: So - a career con man doesn't understand the actual nature of trade?

The list of things he doesn't understand is staggering.  Worst of all, he doesn't understand that he doesn't understand and should be enlisting people that do understand.  His ego won't allow anyone to be smarter than him in the room.  That's why his businesses all fail.  He IS a con man - nothing more.  A shallow, empty moron that started off with enough money to get others to think he's savvy.  If the Russians hadn't bailed his ass out in the late 80's, he'd be where he belongs selling Kirby vacuums door to door.

Only Congress could. If someone tried suing, the courts would most likely just say it is up to Congress. And Congress has said they would like to do something, but won't.

The smart thing would be for the Republicans to take that power away, they are going to win the Presidency less and less because you can't gerrymander states and urban populations are increasing faster than rural populations.  They should want to neuter the executive branch because without substantial policy shifts they purple states will be more likely to go blue and stay blue.

They can still gerrymander to control the House and take advantage of low population States getting two senators but they will find it harder and harder to win the Presidency, even with the voter suppression they engage in.

Easy there. I sold Kirby's door to door for a year. It was not a bad product. Everything Trump touches sucks balls and fails.
