Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, June 12, 2018

Aftermaking the stunning concession to stop joint military training exercises with South Korea, Trump was grilled by reporters on how the U.S. would know if the North Korean leader will hold up his end of the deal and completely denuclearize. Trump, at first, asked a reporter how anything could really be known including if he or she would be able to sit properly in a chair. Then Trump admitted that Kim Jong Un may not denuclearize. "I may be wrong," Trump said during a news conference after the meeting. "I may stand before you in six months and say, 'Hey, I was wrong.' " "I don't know that I'll ever admit that, but I'll find some kind of an excuse," Trump added with a smile.

Such a hollow human being this "President" is. And he's not even embarrassed about being that way.

It'll be Obama's fault. Again.

Of course it's someone else's fault.

There's Hillary, and Obama, and the media, and alternative facts, and fake news, and liberals, and Mexicans, and Muslims, and sh¡thole countries...

Trumpublicans are so stupid. Trump could shoot one of them in the face and they'd still vote for him.

It's not humor if its a well-established pattern of real life behavior.

Trump's sense of humor is watching a football player get paralyzed on the field for his amusement. He's whined that the sport isn't violent enough to entertain him anymore.

Ohhhhhh. Trump was joking! Well. Until something does go wrong. And he inevitably ends up blaming someone else.

By the way. A smile and a smirk are interchangeable and have different connotations.

But. ------------- are always ready to defend that snake oil salesmen to their dying breath.

""I may be wrong," Trump said during a news conference after the meeting."

He then gave 2 possible options for how he would react to being wrong:

1) "I may stand before you in six months and say, 'Hey, I was wrong.' "
2) "I don't know that I'll ever admit that, but I'll find some kind of an excuse."

If you believe that Trump would select option 1 in the event he is wrong, you clearly have either not been paying attention to his Presidency or you are incapable of objectively assessing his behavior. Whether he was joking or not is irrelevant; it does not change the underlying truth of his option 2.

I posted about why i changed, and i wasn't insulting you, just speaking generally, so no need to be so reactionary. I'm definitely not a Dem though; the only Dem i ever voted for was Hillary and that was an attempt to stop the trainwreck that is Trump, who is worse than even I imagined. I felt dirty when i left the voting booth.

Trump, the author of "The Art of the Deal" gave up military exercises with South Korea in exchange for NOTHING from North Korea, without even telling South Korea what he was doing. He poured praise on the tyrant Kim Jung Un just as he had done to Macron and Trudeau, before he despised them. What an international embarrassment.

No surprise that you're wrong. He's doing SHORT term damage to their agenda. But by making health care worse, he's making eventual single payer more likely. By letting corporations trash the planet (which you live on too by the way) he's making stricter regulations more likely. By ruining the republican claim of fiscal responsibility, he's making republican elections more difficult. By exposing republicans as hateful racist morons without any patriotism or ethics, he's making democrat wins more likely.
