    "Fair point about the press. It is more balanced than 20 or 30 years ago. Old school traditional media is by and large in the liberal corner. Fox News and Talk Radio on the right."

    ---Pardon me, but this is the very far from the truth.
    Years ago, the mainstream media was considered extremely trustworthy and balanced. Pretty much everyone trusted his local paper and Walter Cronkite, Huntley/Brinkley, etc.
    --- Then came along the right wing media that drew audiences by making up slurs, and Fox News, owned by the Australian Rupert Murdoch, who wanted to change America.
    The stage was set for more lies and nasty attacks.
    Just look at recent years' election results and the dirty campaigns -- John Kerry went from decorated war hero to coward, Hillary went from 15 yrs of Most Admired Woman to "lock her up"
    These were pure mendacity and completely un-Christian attacks, not "balanced"

    July 4 was the 19th birthday of Malia Obama. Right wing online media called her "gorilla", "ape in heels", "black racist tramp", "from a family of jungle trash".

    Care to explain the drastic change in mindset within just a few short months Worf? All one must do is read the countless personal attacks throughout the Obama presidency stemming from McAllen, Texas Worf.! You're fooling no one but yourself Worf with the continued daily non factual rants which attempt to defend the indefensible and all matters regarding your supreme leader. Keep digging Worf!

    "Trump was mocked with sarcastic insults, and laughter when he suggested running for president a year ago. He fought back, and won. A leader who counter punches, and knows how to win".

    Another well thought out statement Worf. Now a dose of reality for those in the great forward thinking state of Texas!

    Thank you Mr Trump for exposing the deceit, disrespect, corruption, and dishonesty on television, and media.

    Many say that personal insults come with the territory. Nope! A president is not a punching bag.

    There is a big difference between critiquing, and insults.

    Unlike Bernie Sanders who did nothing when he was cheated out of the Democratic election, Trump will strike back.

    Trump was mocked with sarcastic insults, and laughter when he suggested running for president a year ago. He fought back, and won. A leader who counter punches, and knows how to win.

    "I think we know now why Russia wanted Trump in the White House. Because he makes the United States look ridiculous to the world."

    You are correct in that assessment. However, more importantly, Donald Trump has become an unwitting asset of Russia and Vladimir Putin. The have found they don't need to expend so much energy spying on the United States because Trump will readily give them information. All they have to do it praise him and tell him the very things he wants to hear about himself and he will tell them almost anything (as he did with the Israeli secrets) to show his importance.

    White House staffers are very concerned that Trump will insist on having a private conversation with Putin at the G20 summit coming up next week. As the great wheeler-dealer, Trump may give more away than he realizes because Putin has become his Best Bro. Staffers want to keep him on script and under control lest he make a mess of things as it did at the NATO conference.

    There are only two countries that give Trump positive ratings: Israel and Russia. The rest of the world puts him south of 25%, 10 points lower that he get in the U.S.

    Only the hard core Trump'ers can possibly defend the latest from this President. The latest line from his spokesperson that the President hits back harder when hit is only the latest proof that we have an extremely delicate problem on our hands.

    The person in charge in this country can not take criticism, nor insult. There is no grace and dignity in the man. And sadly that is exactly what the 30-40% of the country likes about him. That he is coarse and profane along with the rest of his faults.

    The US is in dire trouble with this man in the White House, and the fact that a significant portion of our fellow citizens can not see him for what he really is. That, added to the feckless nature of the GOP in Congress and the Senate, is a prescription for the end of whatever semblance of a democracy that we have.

    " . . . Hillary's misdeeds and perhaps worse, would have been largely ignored by the media. Clearly, that's not happening with Trump."

    Did you miss the onslaught of publicity that Hillary received from the House investigations conducted under Jason Chaffetz and Trey Gowdy? Where were you when the Russian-released emails of Hillary and the DNC saturated the media during the 2016 presidential election? Have you been deaf to the anti-Hillary barrage launched against her by Fox News and assorted conservative media types including Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Bill O'Rielly, Glenn Beck and more?

    The national media is an equal opportunity investigative force that is only exceeded by the tabloid press and partisan radio and TV groups. The difference in coverage between a Hillary Clinton administration and a Donald Trump administration is that Trump is much better at creating his problems that get covered in the media.

    Just consider, for a moment, Trump's tweet storms that divert attention from getting the business of the nation done. Also, with Hillary, we would not have the Russia mess that Trump is embroiled in and nepotism scandal.

    Donald Trump is such a sleaze. He has doubled-down today and claimed that Joe Scarborough called him to ask that he kill a story in the National Enquirer after Scarborough remarked in their WaPost column yesterday about the threat from a top aide in the White House (Jared Kushner??). What a liar we have running this country.

    Not only that, Trump is a real coward. He hides behind his abusive tweets and uses his staff to protect himself from criticism. He has his friendly surrogates at Fox & Friends and the National Enquirer run stories that he plants so he can refer to in his rants and spread his lies. Can anyone ever imagine Ronald Reagan doing anything like this? Or George W. Bush?

    Anytime I hear the man talk beyond reading a script, I have to take a shower considering all the mess he throws around. He has a history that indicates that he will never change, but Republicans in Congress keep hoping. He's a 71 year-old man, mean-spirited and vindictive, narcissistic and insecure, without any feeling for people other than himself. Those who voted for him will get what they deserve and be disappointed when they don't get their Muslim ban, Wall, and "cheaper, better" healthcare.

    "And, Hillary would have been loved around the world--and probably by Putin as well."

    Putin hates her. Russia is one of only two countries polled (the other being Israel, though by a small margin while in Russia it's a large margin) that has a more favorable view of Trump than they have of Obama. Pretty much everywhere else it's cratered (dropping almost 75 points in Sweden between approval of Obama and Trump).

    You are a funny guy. Using words like "false narrative", "liberal progressive propagandists", 'without any evidence", "Party of hate", and "stand behind their lies" if very different from anything Cheshire Cat wrote.

    You've even attributed to Maxine Waters' identifying more than 2000 times the number of inhabitants on the planet. The CBO says 23 million NOT 700 billion.

    " . . . Russian collusion. Didn't happen."

    The investigation is still going on. Apparently there is a story in the WSJ about a Republican activist working with Mike Flynn getting Russian-speaking hackers to hack Hillary's emails. You should read it and stop listening to Sean Hannity and Fox & Friends.

    Let's first see where this goes before doing a Trump.

    Apparently, you don't get nuance. Chris Matthews may have been inappropriate in drawing a comparison with Mussolini, but he never suggested "murdering" Jared Kushner. You need to listen to the original and not rely upon your news sources.

    Both Nancy Pelosi and Max Schumer have not called for Trump's impeachment. You need to get your facts right otherwise you end up with no credibility and become just more noise in the air. There is not excuse for spreading false information.

    "I would not doubt that at all, considering all intell gets leaked to the tabloids before it gets to the president."

    Donald Trump has a direct relationship with the National Enquirer. He has a personal relationship with David P[e]cker,* the CEO of American Media, which owns the National Enquirer. Also, it is a fact that Trump has given stories to the magazine which then Trump refers to in his speeches. Since Trump has major support in the National Enquirer, it is easy to see him as a source of information and a recipient of its favoritism. Aside from Fox & Friends, the biggest booster of Trump is the National Enquirer (and perhaps Breitbart News and the Drudge Report).

    With intelligence leaks, the national media usually seeks and gets information about the mismanagement and confusion in the White House. If you are concerned about national secrets, Trump talks directly with the Russians. That's how the secret information from the Israeli's got to the Russians and then to the Syrians and Iranians. Remember, Russia supports both Syria and Iran.

    As for his security briefings, Trump wants it all on a one page document.

    Now we have MSNBC’s Chris Mathews again compared Trump’s administration to a third world dictatorship. He then suggested that Trump should murder Jared Kushner.

    According to Maxine Waters, 700,000,000,000 people will be harmed if Senate Republicans repeal and replace Obamacare.

    Pelosie, Shumer, Waters, all calling for Trump impeachment for the Russian collusion. Didn't happen.

    Those alarm bells keep ringing, but what can we do about it? The whole world thinks Trump is just a dumb orange buffoon, and they know how easy it is to play him.

    Kim Jong Un increased the pace of is missile research just to taunt Trump . . . And sent the dying husk of a young American man back to his family after torturing him.

    Our enemies, those who don't control Trump, Taunt him. Our allies disrespect him. The world laughs at him behind his back. Trump has repeatedly shown his inability to govern. He does NO GOOD at all for the American people, and most of the world perceives him to be an ignoramus and Putin's puppet.

    Republicans in Congress and White House staff members must come out and own it. Donald Trumps latest outrage requires that each and every Republican member of Congress and every member of the White House staff go on record about his/her acceptance of Trump's behavior. This would also be good for the conservative commentors in this these threads.

    Such a pledge would go like this:

    "I, (name), fully agree with Donald Trump and accept anything he says, tweets, or does while in office to achieve the agenda I support. As a member of the Party of Trump, I will stand behind him and support him in every tweet, comment, word, and action that he makes in the public sphere."

    This will certainly make arguing much easier since then with Trump-related stories time will not be wasted in developing a rational argument. We could have a "Trump-only thread" which others can just ignore. Trying to have a discussion with an individual entrenched in partisan rhetoric and ideology (if ideology figures into it) is a waste of time and effort. Since many conservative positions come straight from Fox & Friends, Sean Hannity, and Rushbo Limbaugh, there will be no need to comment.

    Donald Trump is meeting with the President of South Korea today and, at the same time, telling the North Korean government that a military option is being considered. The South Korean president, Jae In Moon, must be wondering about Trump as a person of honor and integrity following the anti-Mika Brzezinski tweet storm of yesterday. Moon may think, like most of the world today, that Trump is "losing it" and can only be tolerated.

    South Korea knows that it will be the primary target of North Korean aggression regardless of the military power of the United States. Both South Korea and Japan will face the devastation that could come if Trump goes off the rails and orders massive action. This, also, suggests that China would not be very happy having a nuclear threat develop on its border.

    We have seen Trump act in such an abhorrent way for months now, striking out at his personal enemies and those who don't admire him as much as he demands. It is necessary that we have some mechanism in place to prevent him from launching a war because he gets upset. Republican conservatives may dismiss his behavior as a necessary evil to get their agenda through, but have they calculated the costs?

    Donald Trump's latest misogynistic tweet storm had certainly fired up his base supporters who apparently like whatever this guy does. Even those commenters here in this thread appear to be accept of Trump and his behavior/temperament in using the presidency to lash out at private individuals who have elicited his anger.

    If pointing out a fake Time magazine cover of Trump can bring such a venomous tweet from the White House, one wonders what would come if a comment about Trump's huge girth and lumbering gait would cause?

    Obviously Trump suffers from attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) with his inability to function in his office. But couple that with his paranoia, hypersensitivity, and narcissism and we have a recipe for international calamity. What is going to come when Kim Jong-Un tweaks his nose with threats? Will he order a nuclear strike? A tweet won't work in that situation. Un won't be impressed by a Trump signature on a executive order.

    Perhaps we could have another round of cabinet members sitting around the conference table extolling praise on the Dear Leader to calm his insecurities. Maybe Vladimir Putin will reassure him at their meeting next week.

    Good to see Donald Trump supporters stand tall and defend their guy. From the Access Hollywood tape, to the Miss Universe body shaming, the condemnation of John McCain and a gold star family, to criticizing the "blood oozing" from Megyn Kelly and now the "bloody face-lift" that was a lie, they provide a venue of acceptance that enables this behavior. The lies, planted stories in the National Enquirer, more lies and demands for loyalty, and the simple meanness in Trump is evident in the defenses that are being made on behalf of this man.

    Conservatives certainly want the conservative agenda that Trump proposes. Now we are hearing "repeal without replace" which is really popular with the wingnut fringe. But to get this, conservatives will put up with anything. If Trump were to comment about their wive's and daughter's looks and how much he would want to kiss them and grab . . . , would these conservatives object with the risk of offending, or would they roll over and say nothing?

    It appears they would rather say nothing. But how many really agree with Trump and his behavior? How many wish that they could get away with what he does?

    Trump is an eye for an eye person, not a turn the other cheek kind of guy. Like Trump once told O'REILLY in an interview on the campaign trail. The way to beat the Democrats, is to beat them at their own game, and that he has done!

    Trump is more of a Democrat than a Republican, he was Dem longer than Repub. Actually its obvious labels mean nothing to him, he's a shrewd get it done businessman first!

    One thing for sure Trump is still the same crass and shrewd person that he was on the campaign trail, not like some Presidents past that were one person on the campaign trail and totally another in office. Point being, Trump doesn't need the money from the pay to play global lobbyist swamp.

    Love him or hate him, he IS the sitting President. The action of certain congressmen/women, comedians and actors is bordering Sedition and should be treated as such.

    You are right. Hillary would not have been the embarrassment Trump has been. And, Hillary would have been loved around the world--and probably by Putin as well. The problem for me (and many, many others) is that Hillary's misdeeds and perhaps worse, would have been largely ignored by the media. Clearly, that's not happening with Trump.

    @FT.
    You are partially right. There were other choices in the primaries--and I voted for one of them. Other Republicans had a genuine shot at beating Trump, but could not pull it together.

    What happened to Bernie Sanders on the Democratic side was just sad, and probably more serious than just simply "sad." The Democratic National Committee acted in a premeditatedly undemocratic manner. No wonder a significant number of grassroots Sanders supporters jumped over to Trump or Stein, or just didn't bother to vote in the general election.

    By the time the general election rolled around, the choice was between "scorpion" Hillary and "scorpion" Trump (your words). No one else was going to be elected, in spite of all of the local noise McMullin made in Utah.

    I am sure Kim Jong-un has a whole wall of Time magazine covers saying he was "Man of the Year." But unlike the North Korean population, we are allowed to have critical thinking skills. Trump hates the fact that we do.

    Trump’s insecure obsession with winning, his egomania and rejection of advice, his impulsive and juvenile vilification of any who challenge him and his blur of truth and reality are far from normal.

    A business mentality or lack of political or military experience does not explain his bizarre White House behavior. His instincts seem reptilian. I fail to see the benefit to America.

    Yet others do. A pollster recently commented convincingly on the Trump phenomenon.

    “A single statistically significant variable predicts whether a voter supports Trump—and it’s not race, income or education: it is authoritarianism.”

    “There are people who, for whatever reason, seek strong, authoritarian leaders who provide simple answers and tell them what to do. Trump offers both.”

    “Authoritarians obey. They rally to and follow strong leaders. And they respond aggressively to outsiders, especially when they feel threatened. From pledging to ‘make America great again’ by building a wall on the border to banning Muslims from visiting the United States, Trump is playing directly to authoritarian inclinations.”

    The more the "family values" crowd worships him, the less respect the nation has for them.

    If I were an active Mormon I would've never picked up this scorpion. Just like the story of the scorpion and the frog. The scorpion convinced the frog to take himi across the river. Halfway across, the scorpion stings the frog, dooming them both. When asked why he stung him the scorpion responds, "You knew who I was! It's in my nature!"

    Likewise, we all knew what Donald was. We shouldn't act surprised the way he's acting now. That's why most of America didn't vote for him.

    It's time for the GOP to rally behind moral leaders like McMullen and Democrats who fight for sanity and morality. Trump's New York mob mentality and ethics is a moral stain.

    Trumps' tweets, alternately described as official white house communications and an intimate look at his inner self, are incredibly troubling. I watched him speak about health care and what the senate bill looks like and he comes off as knowing nothing about it. Nothing. Yet he watches a lot of tv; has time for that.
    Sarah told us yesterday he is just being tough guy trump but his twit attacks show just how tough he isn't. Tough is being able to withstand the slings and arrows of the job. Tough is standing up for the people who voted for his idea of a health care plan, and not being a tool for Congress and the GOP therein to advance their hateful agenda.
    He's got to come to the conclusion that he's president, and that involves some new concepts. Decorum, for example. Dignity. Responsibility. Time to step up.

    What a very measured and classy response!

    Once again, the Sewer in Chief looks petty and foolish, incapable of leading a Dairy Queen. While those smarter and much classier inspire and motivate. God bless Mika. No woman should be degraded and insulted the way she was. And god bless Joe!

    Keep up the good work Mornin Joe. Anything that irks this demagogue is good in my book!
