The reaction on conservative and alt:right websites and forums to the NFL saga is insight into a deeply racist angry raging minority.

 

That the POTUS stirs up this kind of thing is unforgivable.  It's way beyond "stupid".

 

In the eyes of many Trump supporters, being black, successful, and having an opinion is the lowest of the low.

For a guy that keeps trying to claim that he wants to unite a divided America, Trump sure does spend a lot of time and energy on shutting down voices attempting to bridge that divide. 

It's almost as if his words don't mean anything. 🤔

Since when does a successful politician mean what they say or know what their rally slogans mean.

"President Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner used a private email account to conduct official business, his lawyer said. He did so through his first nine months in government, even as the president continued to hammer Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton for her use of a private email account for government business." Washington Post

 

Pathetic.

The US flying B1B bombers close to North Korea is stupid,  they were in international airspace but this kind of reckless act can be misinterpreted and could trigger a response that escalates out of control. A childish act of stupidity similar to the type condemned by the US.

KJU will be gobsmacked that the US can afford to do this on a budget of only slightly less than $1 trillion a year.

Trump desperately wants a war.

 

He wants to be seen as "Stronger than Obama".

 

Problem is, he also knows he can not start the war,so instead he is there poking the bear, trying to get it to shoot first.

 

Trump does not care how many innocent lives are destroyed , be they in NK, SK, Japan or even the USA, so long as he "can finish the war" and be seen as a strongman.

 

Trump is a danger to everyone, because if bullets start flying it may well go far far beyond his imagination.

No - Trump absolutely does not want a "war".

 

He wants an opportunity to conduct a surgical strike using cruise missiles or aircraft attack, to take out DPRK's control centre and nuclear facilities.

 

He isn't going to get that opportunity - China will counter attack the US if they strike first, and DPRK won't strike first and lose China's support.

 

Barring some mistake (with potentially horrific consequences) it's stalemate.

 

China also won't maintain sanctions if it's apparent that the main casualty of those is the NK people (as opposed to the regime). Russia also won't support the US on this.  

 

If you wanted the perfect way to harden the North Korean citizen's fear and hatred against the US, Trump's providing it.

Unless North Korea accidentally drops something on South Korea or Japan while testing their missiles, then it's game on.
