As an antiwar activist from my early teens on, I have opposed every war that the US has undertaken during my lifetime. However, I have always believed that service people are not responsible for starting wars, so loving warriors is equally important with hating war. I have always honored the service of our troops and supported measures for their care. That is not so for Republicans. They claim that we, who oppose war, do not support our troops, but Republican support is only so far as using them as cannon fodder. When Putin’s Pervert disrespected four dead special forces troops and their families, he evaded and projected by lying about Obama’s support.

It's really worse than just making this (like everything!) about Obama. "...President Obama and other presidents, most of them didn’t make calls..." EVERY President has made calls, or recognized military dead in some way, even Short Shrub. This B-Hole* is uniquely disrespectful, uniquely uncaring.

*because he hasn't got what it takes to be an A-Hole.

RESIST AND PERSIST !!!

Noted, forwarded and shared ultra-liberally across four networks!!!!RESIST!!You know, I may be ultra-strange but it is and always has been my belief that before you can respect anyone or anything that one has to respect ones-self-it is very obvious to me that the current POTUS is so mentally ill that he lacks the capacity to respect anyone or anything! Thanks for sharing, TomCat-I too respect and cherish the soldiers but detest the stench of war!!

Well, dt shows nothing or feelings about our military. He was golfing when one of the soldiers came home to Dover. What was this ID doing? dt was golfing! He didn't even say anything till 12 days later about the deaths of these servicemen. His disrespect is palpable, he's a fraud, and a liar!!

If any of you expect tRump to “man up,” or do anything appropriate, honorable, presidential, you are going to be hugely disappointed. I’m not suggesting that we make his craziness the accepted normal for how a human ought to act, but he’s nowhere near any society’s normal, and never will be. He lies, ducks weaves, projects, projects…oh, did I say projects? This is, I remind you again, the clown who never had to ask God for forgiveness “…because I’ve never made a mistake.”
Last week I e-mailed my “Wait a year, maybe you’ll change your mind” about tRump, cousin with the heading “Well, it’s been almost a year, have you changed your mind?” The body of the e-mail was the Norman Ornstein )that wonder of the conservative think tank The American Enterprise Institute, their resident guru) article in The Atlantic, describing how horrendous tRump and his administration have turned out to be. Have any of you heard form her…I surely have not?

Excuse my indifference, or rather lack of understanding, of the strong feelings and great respect Americans have towards their military. But where mine may be excused on the basis of being a foreigner, born and bred American Drumpf’s indifference is simply inexcusable, unless one believes that his sociopathy (total lack of empathy ‘for losers who got themselves killed and embarrassing America’?) combined with his dementia (he just forgot what hardly registered in the first place) is an excuse.

When confronted with any acknowledgement over the course of nearly two weeks of the death of four American soldiers in Niger, Drumpf does what he always does: he tries to shift the blame on someone else, in this case Obama because Hilary couldn’t possibly be blamed in this. And Drumpf does it the only way he knows how: by lying or changing reality in such a way that he “did better” by suggesting that he made a personal call instead of sending an impersonal letter. I’d love to see the timeline on those calls; if they’re not pure fabrication, they were probably made right after this press conference.

BTW: Kudos to the reporter who challenged Drumpf right there and then on his lie, forcing him to retract it with the same old, weak “I was told.”

As far as I can remember from Trumpelstiltskin, there is NO truth in him. No compassion, no wisdom, no insight, no love for others. Rather likened to a devil incarnate. And the US has put him in the WH. (!!!) What does that say about this country??? Not good! Keep praying and doing all you can to change the direction of error that marks the political landscape of de-construction, and in turn, strengthen our policies across all subdivides into what our nation can honor: and that is - doing what is right and good for this nation, the people, and the healthy future of this world. I've read where Trumpelstiltskin breathes revenge. I don't think his boundaries stop anywhere. We are all under the breath of a man who is comfortable hurting the innocent for his selfish purposes. His dangerous mind is effecting everyone's sense of peace and safety. Trumpelstiltskin is playing Russian roulette in more ways than any of us would feel good to actually acknowledge. But we all must!
- Always a huge Thank You, to Tom Cat! Every word counts!

Drumpf’s obsession with Obama is insane! He should be suitably obsessed with the deaths of American troops, not Obama.

Drumpf is a poor excuse, very poor excuse for a human being!

Resist, Persist and Remove!!!

Silence is Consent!!!
