U.S. President Gives Thumbs Up to Murderous Dictator
This is just to remind myself that this happened today. The president of the United States said the following about a murderous North Korean dictator:
“He's a tough guy. Hey, when you take over a country, tough country, with tough people, and you take it over from your father — I don't care who you are, what you are, how much of an advantage you have.
”If you can do that at 27-years-old, I mean, that's one in 10,000 that can do that. So he's a very smart guy. He's a great negotiator. But I think we understand each other."
I liked it better when Trump was calling him names.
Nixon was a crook, and paranoid, but he wasn't delusional. Trump lies all the time but I think he believes the lies. Or he thinks he can make the world the way he sees it simply by pushing the lies all the time. It's maddening for us. For him, I think it's close to madness.
