    Politico is fake news.

    I know shocker right coming from the OP.

    People were calling in on talk radio today laughing about these fake news stories.

    I don't know anyone who is displeased with Trump.

    Wonder if Brian Williams though this strike was "beautiful" too?

    That's what I'm hearing as well.

    I do know some folks who weren't crazy about Trump in the beginning but, are more comfortable with what he's doing now.

    He bombed an air field that was in service the next day. And he dropped a big bomb in the mountains somewhere.

    The fact that some people are "comfortable" just shows that some people are stupid.

    LOL ....

    You guys are so silly when you expose your ignorance.

    Try googling why we don't bomb air strips.

    Well if you think it's fake news - then it must be right?

    God this gets so old - you only call it fake news when it doesn't apply to your obvious confirmation bias.

    It is too early to say what sort of political price Trump might pay for his flip-flopping. The Syria strikes frustrated some of his most ardent supporters, but these core backers are also the ones who agree with Trump on the most and are less likely to find another champion. Many of the others are the sorts of nuts-and-bolts issues that few voters have especially informed opinions about. Voters care a great deal about how their own pocketbook is faring, and less about the specific monetary policies that are producing that result. Trumpís harsh words for NATO and China during the campaign were never deeply rooted in fact, as Beijingís efforts to prop up its currency showed; they were more about showing toughness.

    There is a correlation between Trumpís recently abandoned stands and Bannonís views. Bannon has lionized Vladimir Putin, disdained NATO, and argued strenuously against military action in Syria. He has portrayed the Ex-Im Bank as a form of corporate welfare.

    In other cases, however, Trumpís changed views appear to be more of a reflection of the presidentís ignorance. The president was widely mocked for his claim that ďnobody knew that healthcare could be so complicated.Ē It is true that many people recognized that, but equally apparent that Trump did not. As is becoming clear, he was a blank slate on a range of other issues as well.

    I call it fake news when it is fake.

    Trumps base is not turning on him.

    Trump will win in a landslide in 2020 and the fake news MSM will continue to post articles and polls about how there is no way this can happen again.

    And, folks like you, who only parrot fake news, will be just as shocked next time as you were this time.

    How many thread do you think there will be on PH asking "How Did This Happen Again"

    Gonna blame the Russians again?
