I think the point is Obama wouldn't have gotten himself in this situation. Nor Bush nor any other POTUS.

But I agree, at some point people have to start acting like adults. The Congresswoman should have kept her mouth shut.

He needs to be removed from office. He's unfit for the job and it is becoming worse every day.

I think you are wrong, her actions were politically motivated.  Trump's statement included a line that you just can't say to a grieving family.  Even though I don't think he meant it the way the press is building it up to be, you just don't even go there.  For that he was wrong.  Not that he hasn't brought it on himself or deserve it, but she jumped on it for political reasons.  It's not surprising that Trump mishandled the entire thing from the beginning, but I have a hard time believing her reaction would have been the same had it been President Obama who made the exact same statement.  

Obama wouldn’t have done what Trump did

The closest example to Niger is Benghazi, which Obama addressed immediately. He didn’t wait two weeks like Trump

All Presidents tend to have huge egos but Trump’s inability to admit he ever screws up is unmatched by any prior President

I agree.  Any other politician would have realized what not to say.  Trump is simply not at all good at being presidential.  He's really not good at much of anything outside of being able to work up the people who support him.  The fact that he can't get anything done with a congress of his own party proves that.  Although quite honestly I'm not sure his party is behind him either.  I think most of them now regret that they didn't push harder for the RNC to deny him the nomination when they had the chance.

Won't deny that.  Trump will never admit he is wrong.  And it won't change because he is incapable of changing.

Oh and this congresswoman, if she actually cared, would’ve quietly gotten in touch with Kelly and said, ‘the family was not happy with the Presidents call, work on that for the future’.

The Congresswoman has been friends with the family for a very long time. She cared too much, one might say.

That's what he does.  There's no down-side for him.  His base eats this crap up.

Damn the CIA if you think the assessment was wrong

"The 90 percent conclusion that General Petraeus reached was that this was caused by the video, and it was a spontaneous demonstration," said King. "The one thing he was ruling out was terrorist involvement.

What Truth? You choose to hurl insults at Tillerson and Kelley and call that "truth"? It is pure partisan BS. Nothing more.

At least she was honest about what was said or are you going to call the Gold Star family liars as well?

She politicized what should have been a private conversation. She's a worthless tool in my opinion. She should shove that stupid hat in her pie hole and choke on it. If you don't like my opinion of her, well Scarlett, I don't give.....

"The deceased soldier was an alumnus of the 5,000 Role Models of Excellence Project, a mentoring program Wilson started for youths pursuing military careers among other fields. So were his brothers. One received a full scholarship to Bethune Cookman College and the other is training to become a firefighter.

Wilson's connection to the family goes back at least one generation. She told CNN that she was the principal of a school that Johnson's father attended.'

Yeah, what a terrible friend.

The Gold Star family obviously requested her being there, she was an old friend of the family.

Are you calling that Gold Star family liars?

She lied that he "disrespected the family" with a callous intent - that seems to be the whole point here. Paint him in the most negative light possible because he is clumsey with his words - for political purposes. There is no question that the Moron in Chief can't handle such calls with the same level of eloquence that President Obama would have, but to suggest some sort of negative intent by Trump is the lie.

Trump feels that soldiers who are captured are losers. I hate to imagine what he thinks of soldiers who die, especially on his watch.

An 'opinion' is not a lie.
