Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, April 18, 2017

Asked by Fox News host Ainsley Earhardt Monday whether he has ruled out a military strike on North Korea, President Donald Trump repeatedly referred to North Korea's leader as "this gentleman" -- and implied he was dealing with the same "gentleman" that former presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama had grappled with. Trump said, "You know, they've been talking with this gentleman for a long time. You read Clinton's book, he said, 'Oh, we made such a great peace deal,' and it was a joke. You look at different things over the years with President Obama. Everybody has been outplayed, they've all been outplayed by this gentleman. And we'll see what happens. But I just don't telegraph my moves." There is no single "gentleman" who led North Korea when both Clinton and Obama were president. Kim Jong-il died in 2011 and his son Kim Jong-un took over.

And he didn't know what country he was sending Tomahawks into either.
I truly believe that Trump is daft. He has that same look on his face as your demented grandfather who still thinks it's 1945.

I'd love to see someone hand him a globe and ask him to point to Syria or Korea. He probably thinks Syria is part of Mexico and thats why he wants to build the wall

And his voters fall even deeper in love with him.

Ignorance is a positive selling point for these morons. Knowledge is for nerds and professers who are not to be trusted because they gave bad grades to trump voters in school. It's finally time to put a moron in charge and show those nerds how it's done!

Bring one to an Orange #45 rally and have someone show you where Benghazi is on it. Same result.

When you're 70 years old and only sleep four hours a night, that's not a good combination for cognition.

Calling someone who had his brother murdered and an uncle killed by a pack of dogs a gentleman is ridiculous.

Frankly it is the same government the leader changed but the advisors are the same and they are still trying to push us into another peace deal where we pay them cash because it worked in the past.

The truth is if the democrats had never paid them all that cash for a peace deal they would not be doing this now.

So Trump doesn't know where he launched cruise missiles at, doesn't know where his ARRRMAAADAAAA is and doesn't know who is in charge in NK? He know what's important. Like the chocolate cake. The beautiful beautiful cake.

We really need to start electing a prime minister to go along with the president. President to show up and look official, prime minister that can do math and read a map to actually administer the executive branch.

Or we could, you know, actually elect a president who is qualified to do the job.

Poor Boaz... stuck in the middle between defending the mistake-ridden idiot president or defending the lying president. It's a hard choice I know. Good to see you choose door #3 though and deflect instead. Easy way out... that what they taught you in boot camp? Go over the obstacle or go around the obstacle or walk away from it waving your hands in the air?

You should just save time by copy-pasting that onto the dozens of daily threads demonstrating trump's incompetence. Because there are only so many ways to say "I don't care that the president is a moron, as long as he's a cruel -------, that's all I need."

If this is the best defense you can come up with for Trump's mistake, you must know he's a clown.
