    '"Ok, ok, ok. Let's take a step back and be objective for a second here (which, admittedly, as a Canadian, I'm finding it harder and harder to do).

    The US President has just attended an international conference with his closest allies, both economically and geopolitically, and threatened to stop trading with them if they don't concede to his demands on trade.

    This US President, both prior to and at said conference, indicated that Russia, who had been removed (almost) unanimously from the conference for an illegal invasion of a sovereign nation, should be present because he feels they should be.

    This is the same Russia which the US and international intelligence community has repeatedly and emphatically stated interfered in the 2016 US election to help swing the result in favour of the current US President. The same Russia which the intelligence community states is currently undermining democracies around the world. The same Russia which has publicly poisoned former citizens currently residing on foreign soil. The same Russia this US President has repeatedly dragged his feet on imposing sanctions upon. The very same Russia which is currently the subject of a Special Council investigation into this President's possible collusion with them, which has already resulted in indictments and guilty pleas.

    Then, this US President has indicated in a tweet that the Canadian tariffs on US dairy are unjust and that "we should end all subsidies because they're unfair" despite the fact that the US dairy and agriculture industries are massively subsidized and the primary reason behind the Canadian tariffs in the first place. He then refuses to sign a joint statement by all members of the conference because he feels the Canadian Prime Minister made false statements.

    The US President then states that the current tariffs his nation is placing on his allies is justified from a national security risk assessment perspective because they jeopardize the US "balance sheet" despite the fact that he has signed a elaborate tax overhaul which grants massive benefits to the wealthy and corporations and will increase the US debt by 1.5 trillion over the next decade.

    I mean, I know we talk a lot here about this season having the craziest writing and that this is all nuts and beyond the norm, but I sometimes feel we're not only losing sight of the forest for the trees, but losing sight of the galaxy for the grains of sand on the beach.

    Regardless of who this US President is, this is beyond comprehension. He is actively promoting the interests of a hostile foreign power, one for which his campaign's involvement is currently being investigated, while simultaneously attacking his closest allies using blatant falsehoods and ludicrous hypocrisy.

    And this isn't some shitty TV drama. This is actually happening. In real life. Right now.

    I've lost the proper vocabulary for how insane...yes UTTERLY INSANE...this entire thing is.

    Edit: forgot that Italy was opposed to Russia's expulsion from the group for the 2014 Crimea annexation."'

    Almost More important, Chief!

    Without enablers Trump would already be out the door with the corruption he has brought to this Administration.

They see what a train-wreck this president is and they just ignore it. It doesn't matter what anyone says. Trump lies at his rallies anyway.

    I am not so sure about that. He hasn't been in office long enough to make that call. Trump is hanging himself, every day. His hard core base were not the only voters that put him in office. Moderates voted for him as well. If you want to sway moderates...you can't be a screeching, outraging fool all the time. It turns them off. We are stuck with Trump until 2020 and if the moderates see liberals behaving the same way as Trump, they will just say fuck it and not vote because they are so turned off of politics. We also need to pick and choose our outrage better. Screeching about the length of his tie or Melania won't hold his hand is useless and stupid. His behavior at G7...is definitely screech worthy.

    Just because it bears repeating:

    Then went to Singapore showering praises on one of the most vicious Dictators in the world,who is so broke he can not pay bribes any more. Onewho is expecting to get big bucks out of Tax Payers pockets. Something he will likely get from the loony tunes we have in the WH. A piece of paper that will not be worth the paper it is written on.

    Give me an answer on that,Orange Cat.

    Trump supporters are not going to be swayed by Trump's actions or his words. One thing that will get their attention is decrease in their paycheck and/or too much of an increase at the gas pumps. Unfortunately, with these tariffs this might be exactly what they see.
