              A former klan member once said the klan meetings were so full of hate he could cut it with a knife. He had to leave because it was eating him up inside. Day in and day out living with obsessive, irrational hate. Day after day scheming to hurt people who frankly didn't give a damn about him. Powerless, self-destruction.

                  2039: Russia invades Poland.
                  Trump: we will send our best tweets to call for peace!*
                  So, is NATO going to be abandoned because we know that we can't trust USA?

                  *in 1939 UK and France were obligated to start war with 3rd Reich. UK sent their bombers full of... leaf letters calling for peace. Poor Brits needed some carrots to improve their eyes enough to realise that they were not bombs, but then it was too late for Poland. France attacked but then got scared of some border police so they retreated and started "phoney war". That is one of major source of distrust in Polish people towards NATO. Now if we add USA to countries that are known not to help their allies, things start looking grim.

                              People are missing the big picture here. Trump obviously does not believe in meddling in a border dispute that has going on for centuries. He has argued that middle east wars are a waste of money and does not achieve anything. Maybe one day the peoples in the middle east can sit down and have a last peace agreement; this is what happened in Europe after WW2. I am sorry for the Kurds but Trump is wise to not get involved in a war between Turkey and Syria. I am no fan of Trump but I understand his reasoning, he has explained himself very clearly in his own entertaining way.

                                  Omg the hosts on Fox and Friends were sooooo surprised Graham did that and were having to think of a way to please their master in the Oval Office as soon as he got off the phone. Its hilarious to watch.Its shocking how terrified of him and his twitter account they are.

                                      You guys talking about things u dont understand. its not the kurds that us allied with. İts a pkk/ypg happens to be a terrorist organization. its true they are kurds but kurds living with turks in turkey peacefully for hundreds of years. So many kurds despise pkk/ypg both in turkey and in syria. Please search before u talk.

                                          Leave Donald Trump alone. I feel sorry for him having so many people hate him when all he’s done is try to help us all. He’s done so many things to make America Great again. We are all richer now. And this rubbish about Donald Trump lying is fake news. Not one person has any evidence of just one lie he’s told but the fake news is saying he has lied over 17,000 times since he’s been President. And no one can tell me that any other president has done as much as Donald Trump.
                                          Trump for 2020.

                                            Im not even going to watch this video I just wanted to comment that Steven Colbert has really gone downhill with his hard on for anything related to trump. Got a few laughs from the boss on chopper talk and now he wont drop it. It is insane that you think doing the same bits again and again is going to net you a larger audience. Steven, your impressions suck and your content is lacking. Your forced laughter from the audience is like watching reruns of scooby doo. Boring.

Nonetheless, the fact remains Trump is indisputably dismantling the American empire by pulling the U.S. out of the Middle East and southeast Asia and Latin America, one step at a time. To say otherwise is probably due to extreme attachment to social issues or whatever pet hatred one has that ignores the benefits of Trump's new foreign policy.

                                                          Trump isn't anti-war, he created more war by allowing Turkey to invade with their Al-Qaeda militias who have already freed almost 2000 ISIS fighters. Trump didn't even initially evacuate US troops back to the US just moved them from North to South so Turkey could invade, he only pulled them out after Turkey fired at US positions and told them to get out of their way. After he pulled out 1000 US troops from Syria because he's Erdogan's pet he sent a further 3000 US troops in Saudi Arabia to help them continue their genocidal war in Yemen.

                                                          How can you deny reality like this? I don't like Obama or the Democrats either but you Trump supporters are absolutely insane and in complete denial.

                                                        Clinton abandoned the Kurds. Bush 2 did nothing for the Kurds. Obama did nothing for the Kurds. U.S. policy has never been to help every possible nationality, no matter how small, achieve self-determination. The U.S. has never ever been in support of self-determination. No rational government could be. You think the Kurds deserve a homeland? Then you think Jews do, Nazis do, American southern white supremacists do, black supremacists do, etc. If government were tied to race, then we'd all be screwed. Stop blabbing about issues you don't think through, New York & Hollywood. Jeebus Cripes, now American liberals are war hawks? Totally ridiculous anti-Trump nonsense. Talk about policy, not people, otherwise you look stupid.

The Turkish militias have already freed over 2000 ISIS fighters, thanks so much Jen!

                                                                                  Little do you know of the middle east tribal politcs. There are no allies here; its all about tribal feud lasting for several thousand years and which will never come to an end. Read some books by well known middle east historians. Invading Iraq and removing Sadam was a geat mistake; destroying Lybia and killing Gaddafi was anorher one.
                                                                                  Btw, the kurds were offered a state, but their leaders Talabani and Barazani could not sort out things between them and turned to Iran, thus stabbing the US in the back.
                                                                                  So, leave the middle east sort things out by itself.

Do you know the difference between Sunis & Shiites Muslims & WHY they have been fighting over 2000 yrs & US being there doesn't stop it! ALL we were doing was babysitting ISIS prisoners with TAX $ food, health,water.The countries they came from, EU, GERMANY, refused take them. AS TRUMP SAID AMERICA FIRST. OUR SICK,HOMELESS COME FIRST! SYRIA is basically gone. It was taken over by IRAN and RUSSIA. Pres Trump is NOT going to put us in another war of RELIGIOUS fighting and LOOSE SOLDIERS LIVES for conflict that has gone on over 2000 yrs! As he said he will devastate Turkeys economy with Sanctions & they know it. Like he said, we have crushed ISIS & he promised to go in, crush them, and bring troops home. He didn't abandon ANYONE. LEARN OR JUST CUT THE CRAP ON MADE UP ILLITERATE KNOWLEDGE!
