Cadet Bone-Spurs goes to Vietnam

How fitting is it that our president, who did an exemplary job of avoiding a trip to Vietnam when his nation needed him, finally goes and gets his ass handed to him by a tin pot despot ?

I can’t wait to see how this is spun by the right wing media as a victory. They’re already drooling all over themselves proclaiming that Trump won – by leaving. This is the ‘Art of the Deal’ ? Or does it really not matter because Donny has new butt buddy on the Dictators Dating site ?

Of course Kim didn’t know that Otto Warmbier was being tortured and abused, He lovingly looked into Donny’s eyes and told him so. Why would he lie ? After all, he’s such a good guy. He has no reason to. And our genius president who does everything ‘by his gut’ (must have a lot of knowledge IN THERE) believes him.

The worst part of this is that Trump and the North Koreans have differing stories on why the talks broke down. AND I DON’T KNOW WHETHER TO BELIEVE DONNY OT THE NORTH KOREANS. How sad is it that there is even a question?

Will Identity Politics elect Trump again?

Let’s be clear about this – I’m a life long Liberal,Progressive Democrat. I’m not even offended when someone calls me a Socialist – to a degree it’s true.

The current crop of candidates lining up to contest the current thief in chief, however are scaring me.

Our current list of candidates contain primarily people who are identified by their particular niche in the base. Talking heads continually exalt over the wide range of choices available and label these people based on identity factors that have absolutely zero to do with whether they can actually win or not.

What I don’t see yet is anyone who can bring us all together and actually get the job done.

The risks to our country and our lives are too great to limit us to categorically rejecting or promoting anyone based on their race, religion, gender identity or age. If the lessons we should have learned from the 2016 loss which I believe occurred because we nominated a flawed candidate based on idealistic motivations and an under estimation of the competition.

I’m all in on a Black, or Female or Jewish or any other kind of nominee. As long as they can beat Trump.
