It's a scary concept, especially in this day and age of so much fake news. One need only to tune into Fox news and the flow is almost endless. Don'r forget to tune into "All The Presidents Lies" tomorrow.

Without objective information, you are going to go in the direction of the person who is making up your facts.

That approach seems to be very effective among Trump supporters. I suppose not everyone has the time or wants to make the effort to do any serious fact checking so they believe a wall is being built or there was no quid pro quo, etc., etc., etc.

Trump makes another flip flop, this time on the Gallagher issue. Now he says he won't interfere with the revue of the Navy Seal. Maybe someone in the west wing got through to the dumbass that supporting a murderer/torturer who also likes to take pictures of himself with dead civilians on the battlefield, while he wears his US military uniform, is not such a good idea.

I'll venture a guess that "All The Presidents Lies" documentary contained issues most of us have already heard, although we may have gained a little more insight, while of course it will go in one ear and out the other of the Trumpites.

And when you though it couldn't get any weirder/sicker, Rick Perry now claims Trump was "ordained by God to be president". If that's the best we can expect from God then I'm glad I quit dropping coins into the collection plate so long ago.

Is there still enough room under that bus to accommodate Giuliani now that he seems to be headed there? Or will he use his "insurance" to thwart that. And the band played on.

Trump finally musters up enough cajones to take a trip into a war zone (Afghanistan) to hand out some turkey to the troops at Thanksgiving. I guess he needed to suck up to the military after recent events. I can imagine after what he has done with regard to abandoning the Kurds who served alongside US troops in Syria, the Afghan troops might be a tad uneasy, especially as he talks about making a "deal" with the Taliban. I know my way around the Bagram airbase pretty well. Glad I wasn't there now to have to listen to him.

Why would he need to suck up to the military? His support among the troops is strong!

President Donald Trumpís approval rating among active-duty military personnel has slipped over the last two years...About 44 percent of troops had a favorable view of Trumpís presidency, the poll showed, compared to 43 percent who disapproved....a gradual decline in troopsí support of Trump since he was elected in fall 2016, when a similar Military Times poll showed that 46 percent of troops approved of Trump compared to 37 percent who disapproved. That nine-point margin of support now appears gone.

Oh.

(And that poll was done last year, before the whole "Withdraw from Syria/protect the oil" policy was enacted. )

I suppose the rank and file approve because they have to. The higher ups though (secretary of the Navy for instance) not so much. Decisions such as deserting the Kurds in Syria, and now possibly the Afghans who fought alongside US troops while he tries to make "a deal" with the Taliban, have been heavily criticized.

And I'm just hearing that the Taliban have basically thumbed their nose at Trump saying that any negotiations must begin exactly where they broke down last time. I'd be getting nervous if I was an Afghan soldier.

Trump's nose is a little out of joint today as he heads for London/NATO meeting for at least a couple of reasons. Trump's good buddy Boris Johnson has essentially told Trump to keep his mouth shut regarding anything to do with Brexit, and he feels the impeachment hearings should be stopped while he is on the world stage. I hope they packed enough Cokes and burgers on AF1 to keep him occupied and not spend time hassling the crew.

And to top it all off there is Trump's little fake orgasm he portrays on stage in front of a room full of the knuckle draggers who support him. Can he get any scummier I wonder?

I get a kick out of Trump attacking Lisa Page for having had an affair as he fakes jacking off on a stage in front of a crowd MAGA hat wearing idiots. How many affairs has he had? And then of course he likes to tell people how he can grab women by the **** since he is a star. Am I the only guy on this site who gets pissed off about this crap?!

No, but one of two things has happened:

1) Morality has disappeared in which case we were here to see the end of it, and it's up to us to hold our own morality and rise above
2) Morality hasn't disappeared, and there will be great shame on all of these people some day
