    I’ll admit, I laughed. But not in a good way.

    I don’t. What does a critique on a childish tweet from your president have anything to do with what’s going on in Washington as a whole? I said nothing about Trump’s visit in Asia, Kim Jung-un, senators being accused of pedophilia, etc.

    Try again.

    I think it was the most “sounds like a Mom” convo that we’ve had.lol. He tried to retort with “You’re not the boss of what sports teams I like. I’m allowed to like whoever I want, even the Steelers.”

    I replied “Not in my house. I’m the boss of ALL of it.” :)

    The facts may be skewed and the hill may have falsely pulled numbers but the list says otherwise

    Perhaps those political and entertainment figures being accused of sexual improprieties should utilize this proven to be successful defense strategy:

    I always find this attitude so bizarre. What would you think of a person who could never admit they had been wrong about something?

    If only all world leaders interacted with each other this way!

    Good lord, the ideal some people seem to have about how their country should behave is hopefully below the level they would expect of their children.

    I’m in frantic vacay prep mode So I can’t make it worse by involving politics ;).., However, read the bold section. Let it sink in.. And then think about why people get annoyed with statements such as the one you posted yesterday or the day before. It’s not just you, it is many, many people. So show media and pseudo- journalism is so distorted right now that I think people are becoming more ignorant than they actually were before reading a headline.

    Sometimes, having a sense of humor is okay.

    Some people might try and tell you that this is a parody. But, this...is not a parody.

    I've never liked his politics, and frankly don't think he was ever that funny on SNL (his funniest bit IMO was as a baggage handler in Trading Places). But I never doubted that he was probably a decent person in this regard. To read him described as acting like a drunk frat kid, and to even see a photo of him behaving that way, only adds to the feeling that our nation seems rudderless in our leadership.
