Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, September 20, 2017

"Since Trump took office, confidence in the president has gone down further, on average, than favorability toward the U.S.: Confidence dropped 47 points; U.S. favorability just 13 points," wrote Gus Werezek and Andrea Jones-Rooy, at FiveThirtyEight.com, in a piece that parsed the findings in annual surveys of global opinion by the Pew Research Center. Each year, Pew surveys roughly 1,000 people in five to 40 counties. Only two countries had improved views of President Trump compared to his predecessor: Russia and Israel. Only two nations had relatively unchanged views of U.S. favorability: Israel and Poland. Not surprisingly, the countries with the sharpest declines in confidence in the president and in American government are those that are our closest allies.

Can't be. Nikki Haley is bragging about how "every leader in the world" is loving the Rocketman insult.

I'd love to hear the nicknames foreign leaders have for Trump.

As seen online but not from a foreign source: (Putin's) Pocket Man.

"totally annihilate north korea"....how did we get here folks. i remember as a junior in high school, how quiet it was in the halls between classes and in our normally deafening lunch room. girls huddled up in little groups crying. october in '62. weren't sure we'd see '63. we made it that time but that was then and this is now and it ain't the same. this challenged individual that by some quirk of fate has been appointed to lead our country puts the world in sort of the same place as europe just before the outset of the bubonic plague. they were powerless to stop it...i hope our fate isn't already similarly sealed

not to be argumentative but the simplicity of your answer demonstrates the problem perfectly. if old age has any advantage at all it is that you've been given enough time to realize just how complex almost every subject that matters, is. men and women..parents and children..race relations..economics. it's always the same. the
"answer" might never be resolved to every ones' satisfaction but debate, introspection and compromise are always absolutely essential. to try to raise your child to be a critical thinker is in my mind, your most important task as a parent hence my support for public education. if the election of trump hasn't pointed anything else out it's that that is a trait sorely in decline

Russia knows a good billionaire plutocrat authoritarian Dictator when they see one. Pres for Life Putin, skimmer of all deals in Russia, owner of the media and the Assembly and the Courts, murderer of his opponents... has been Trump's role model since day one.

Obama and hillary did putin's bidding in exchange for help getting elected?

Nope. If they had you would have been throwing a fit about it.

And yes, getting along with a man who rigs elections, throws his opponents in jail, and assassinates reporters is a BAD thing.

After decades of the Russian bogeyman haunting right wingers' dreams, do you really expect this statement to be taken seriously?
