1. If Trump is reported to have said something that's both insane and offensive,

the report is almost certainly true.

My goodness -- Trump criticizes the Kurds because "they didn't help us in the Second War War, they didn't help us with Normandy."

I hope this mess ends with the saving and not the total destruction of democracy, but the way this fool talks, one has to wonder what their master plan truly is.

18. Even a short quote of what is supposed to be not true would be helpful.

"surely this can't be true" is not exactly an informative title. Before I click any link anywhere I want to know more than that.

but I've noticed this has become common here to put a couple of words in the title and then underneath a "Link to Tweet".

Turns out that sometime in the past I had put "Sanders" on my trash word list and I only found out about that today.

23. Are we witnessing the collapse of the nation?

Such affront to principles and values...a self-absorbed, paranoid, and evil madman at the helm...the wholesale destruction of the machinery of government...the system creaking and groaning beneath the weight of assault...enablers at all levels--including a deluded, conspiratorial cult within our own communities and families...

The body politic is convulsing moment to moment as events consume us.

WHAT. IN. THE. LIVING. FUCK. IS. HAPPENING!

Before I help anyone, I always ask myself if this person has ever done anything for me. The only way to find out another person's worth is to find how valuable they've been to you. Because everything always comes back to you.

It did take in some Jewish people that were fleeing Hitler, but it in no way took up arms against Germany and the Axis.

47. So, somebody gave him some history of the Kurds.

And since he is nothing but a conspiracy theorist (with his minuscule finger on the button) he is appealing to the ignorant faction of his base. And the racist element.

Having to rely on Cheney and Graham for pushback on his lack decency and the devaluation of our currency as a nation of honor is insane.
