Trump’s threat to NBC’s license is the very definition of Nixonian

Tenfold was merely shorthand for the size of the increase he wanted. I don’t see how the narrative was changed from reasonable to nuts. The point of the story, the reason why Tillerson called him a moron, is clear.

Perhaps, but if he said improve and they said ten-fold that is quite a difference. I think it is reasonable to say that we must improve our arsenal. I think it is nuts to say that we should go from having 4500 nukes to 45000. You really can't see why one sounds ok and one sounds nuts?

Donald Duck :D

I was talking to my niece's husband the other day. He is a big Trump supporter and he was trying to claim that Europeans think Trump is doing a great job in America.  Would it be okay if I told him about your experiences?   He probably won't believe me but I would like to share them with him.

Feel free. The other interesting thing is that the few other Americans we encountered in our travels (a couple having breakfast at our hotel in Rothenburg, a couple in a pub in London who were also sad Ravens fans, and two ladies in a cafe in France) all described the same thing, and how embarrassed they were for having to admit that we elected the moron. :o

If your nieces husband is anything like most Trump supporters....you are likely wasting oxygen. But good luck. Most all here and who I know have a full set of Fonz 'I am wwroo  wwrooon...I am wwwron' shots. :D

It's kinda sad when you think about it.  It now appears we've become a laughing stock among average people.

Reading Papi's posts I didn't get the impression that they hate Trump as much as they think he is a joke.

I think his anti-globalism is the main reason his agenda isn't "appreciated" in Europe. He does make himself an easy target with the stupid stuff he say's for the "Euroes".

That's true as well.  Usually the discourse on here is more about personality than anything else. That's why anytime you have the same position as Trump on any issue you gonna get jumped on.

Oops, my bad, I forgot Americans are the bestest of the best because we elected the bestest of the best and those stupid Europeans don't know what they're talking about.
