“I would consider it an honor if you would revoke my security clearance as well, so I can add my name to the list of men and women who have spoken up against your presidency.”

#45 salutes a general in Kim Jong Un's murderous regime.



But, hey! At least President Spanky didn't BOW, so for #45's fans, it's all good.







via Daily Kos:

"...you’d think it would be a no-brainer not to salute a general from a foreign military, one that has been threatening nuclear war with the United States for decades. But, not Trump. And now North Korean state-run television is running this video on repeat. Donald Trump saluting their general, giving him the ultimate legitimacy. What kind of message does that send to the North Koreans who’ve been living under the threat of starvation and firing squads at the hands of this very same general?"



President Trump's unique approach to our American government: 

1)  He trashes and humiliates our loyal allies, like Canada; 

2)  He praises a murderous butcher of a Communist country; 

3)  He takes foreign policy advice from the ex-Communist head of the KGB: (WSJ) Putin Advised Trump To Drop Military Exercises With South Korea;

4)  Trump trashes America's 1st Amendment by demonizing all media that doesn't suck up to him; 

5)  He trashes his own DoJ and Attorney General for not sucking up to him like sycophants do in totalitarian countries; 

6) Trump's goons have rounded up babies and children, taken them away from their parents, and kept them in holding cages. CAGES!!

 7)  Trump is vulgar, petulant, whiney, a chronic liar, and appallingly ignorant of American history and her Constitution.

His unfortunate supporters find all of this obscene and indecent anti-American behavior "refreshing." Those supporters are not worthy of being called Americans.

Of course they are. Kim must be constantly pinching himself to make sure he isn't dreaming, the way Trump keeps showering his regime with almost groveling praise and respect. A propaganda triumph beyond his wildest hopes.

No President in modern history would have humiliated the United States and cheapened its gravitas as a world power like this. Hillary wouldn't have. Bernie Sanders wouldn't have. Jeb wouldn't have. No conceivable legitimate President would have.

The best we can hope for is that a good number of Republicans in Congress are seething, whatever they say in public. Some amount of respectful treatment of Putin is one thing -- Russia is still a major military power -- but groveling before the tinpot dictator of a country the size of Syria? What would Reagan think? What would he think of the Republicans, including the trolls on this very blog, who will soon be along with the usual excuse-making for Trump's behavior?

Had to be photoshopped right?

I mean there's no way a patriot like Trump would do this would he?

Cause if it is a real undoctored photo then the folks mad about Obama's bow have some 'spainin' to do Lucy...

Or they could just pretend they're not crazy...

Infidel... no member of the GOP that is up for reelection will say a thing. NOT. ONE.

They are too afraid of angering the extremists currently in the drivers seat of the GOP.

This is the Taft wing of the party gone nuts and drunk on steroids.

OMG, this is just horrible, an actual reason for impeachment

No, Anon, it's not a reason for impeachment; it's a reason to expose the Trumpistas for the rank hypocrites they are. They lost their minds when President Obama shook hands with Raul Castro; silent when President Spanky does the same thing with KJU.
