    Was he also making a 'joke' when he said that Obama was 'the founder of ISIS'?

    Was he making a 'joke' when he said he knew 'more about ISIS than the generals do'?

    Two simple questions there. Hope I can get simple yes or no answers. Thanks in advance.

    The President probably meant that Obama was responsible for allowing ISIS to spread because he didn't take them seriously enough in the beginning. I doubt the President meant Obama founded that particular brand of Islamic extremism.

    As to your second question: yeah... he probably wasn't joking about knowing more about ISIS than some of our generals. He likely believes that.

    In the first case, if you are right, the President needs to look up the word 'founder' in the dictionary, and realize that he said something incredibly stupid. In the second case, Mr. Trump did not say he knew more about ISIS than SOME generals; he said he knew more about ISIS than THE generals did: "I know more about ISIS than the generals do" were his exact words, a statement which manifestly includes ALL the generals, and is also a manifestly ridiculous boast which no sensible person should believe.

    Or maybe you just need to learn how not to take what this President says so literally. A dictionary is not necessary.

    If we followed you around all day and took everything that you said or wrote so literally and exactly I"m sure a lot of what you said would turn out to be inaccurate as well.

    In any case - anyone who thinks the President was being serious when he joked about the Russians finding Mrs. Clinton's emails needs to take a break from politics and go get some air. Perhaps a vacation.

    just when you thought the bar couldn't possibly be lowered in further for Trump.
    Now we have his supporters actually arguing that the president shouldn't be taken seriously.

    The funny part of it is they don't appear to realize how insulting that is to Trump.

    Once again you are dishonestly portraying what was said. Is that all you do on this board? Because it seems so.

    You can take someone seriously yet still understand when they are joking - which the President was obviously doing with his comments about the Russians finding Mrs. Clinton's emails.

    Taking someone seriously and literally when they are obviously joking - that's the problem here. So don't twist my words to make it seem like I was saying Trump shouldn't be taken seriously. Jokes aren't meant to be taken seriously. That's why they are called..... jokes.

    The only thing I see here that's "moronic" is you calling the President a traitor because he made a joke.

    why wouldn't he be a traitor just because it was a joke?
