I hate the 'imagine if ..... did this and how upset you would be!' But imagine. Donald Trump apologized to Erdogan for his body guards beating the crap out of American Citizens on American soil. He's so weird about the despots he supports and attacks. Kim Jong Un, we're bringing fire and fury...maybe...but we're so mad and serious about it. Putin, basically in the fan club. Apologizes to Erdogan. What a time to be alive.

Turkish journalists are now saying this may be a mistranslation of a word Erdogan used that can mean either "I'm sorry" or "I'm sad". They believe Erdogan was using it in the second sense when describing his conversation with Trump.

Meanwhile, in grifting news, it turns out HHS secretary and noted inside trader Tom Price has been running up bills taking private charter flights everywhere he goes, despite HHS secretaries normally travelling commercially. He took a $25k private jet from DC to Philly and back for a 3 hour visit, despite a commercial flight leaving at the same time :o

Also, it looks like Trump is paying his legal bills in the Russia probe with his supporters' donation money. Hard to get upset over that one though, lie down with dogs, etc etc.

is that even legal?  I would think that it's not unless I'm misinterpreting"donation money" as campaign donations but they're actually donations to a legal defense fund

It's legal if they're used to defend against allegations that arise from campaign activities, which, as of now, these allegations are.

Flying charter from DC to Philly seems a bit excessive.   Especially when you're talking out of the other side of your mouth being critical on fed spending.

This is a great speech by a great President.  Trump is orders of magnitude better, as a President, than the US has seen in a very long time:

If by "a very long time" you mean in the past 6 months you would be right.

While I question the wisdom of purposely and personally antagonizing an unstable person who has nuclear devices at his disposal, I like the fact that Trump does call out some world leaders for what they are.  His ability and willingness to pick fights with (or face down) some of the bad actors on the world stage is impressive and lives up to the Trump campaign promise of toughness.  Unfortunately, I am struggling to come up with much evidence to support a claim of greatness.  So far I see him as a generally awful president, a disgraceful moral leader, and an impulsive and petulant bully, but a guy who has 1) made a couple of strong speeches on the world stage, 2) has influenced a reduction in illegal border crossings, and 3) has made a successful nomination to the Supreme Court who will serve honorably (despite my disagreements with ideology).     Trump's aggressive language and name-calling toward Kim in NK may turn out well for the US and world peace, but it also risks disaster.  And I'm not certain the added risk is necessary.

I've only highlighted the negatives because I agree with them.  The positives you listed are not durable or memorable.  Rest assured he will be remembered as the worst president ever.

I am still shocked that not only is he calling the leader of another country names publicly on Twitter but doing so in a major speech in front of the United Nations. I don't care how much conservative Americans loved what he said about America first, calling Un "Rocket Man" is again immature and beneath the office of the President of this great country.

Agreed.

It's something you expect out of a third world despot, not the leader of the free world.

I thought the political nicknames were stupid in the primaries. Now that they're incorporated into official US policy, it's embarrassing.

I've heard comparisons to Reagan, which make me cringe. Reagan had dignity, class and credibility.
