With a couple of the most recent posts (not you yhwx), it’s hard to tell if you guys get what is so staggeringly stupid about his Rocket Man tweet or if you’re just providing additional commentary.

You mean Trumpy sounding like he thinks it’s been the same NK leader for 25 years? He probably never saw Team America. Or they all look alike to him.

Perhaps Un is Rocket Man Jr. 😉

Trump and his handlers knew perfectly well that his going golfing and tweeting defensively were horrible optics for Hispanics and other groups before they did it. That begs the question: WHY?

Yes. It’s truly frightening how clueless he is.

Hopefully he sees somebody pointing out his mistake on this. The tweets where Trump tries to front out his obvious mistakes are the funniest ones.

Is it safe to say now that Trump is the most unpopular US president of all time?

It looks like a fancy chamber pot, which seems appropriate. Or maybe it’s one of those fake Holy Grails? Only one way to find out!

And I love the guy nonchalantly smoking a stogie in the back.

He’s possibly the most unpopular at this point in his first term, based on polling data.

[W.] Bush, Carter, Nixon, and Truman were more unpopular at the end of their terms.

Amid intense debates about the Graham-Cassidy health care bill, the Senate and House missed the deadline to reauthorize the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) – meaning federal funding for the program will expire at the end of the month.

Last reauthorized in 2015, CHIP is a partnership between the federal government and states that insures American children from low and moderate-income families.

And though the program’s situation isn’t yet dire – and won’t be until the states begin to run out of money – some states are starting to get nervous about paying for the program.

“States are optimistic that Congress will actually act. They’re not totally panicked yet,” said Diane Rowland, executive vice president of Kaiser Family Foundation. “But, they need to know very soon that addition money will be coming so they’ll know how they can continue their programs.”

A Little History

CHIP was passed into law with bipartisan support under President Bill Clinton in 1997.

Co-sponsored by the late Sen. Ted Kennedy, D-MA, and Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-UT, and championed by then-first lady Hillary Clinton, the program provides low-cost health coverage to children in families who earn too much to qualify for Medicaid, but still need government support to pay for their kids’ healthcare.

In the years following the program’s passage, the uninsured rate among children fell significantly, from 13.9 percent in 1997 to 4.5 percent in 2015, according to a Medicaid and CHIP Payment and Access Commission report released early this year.

How the hell do they miss a deadline like that? Nobody taped a note to the fridge or something? I thought politicians had people on staff to remind them of important stuff like this.

I don’t necessarily believe in hell, but Trump better hope it doesn’t exist. A truly awful person.

Well, I do believe. And he has gone on record to say that he has done nothing to warrant asking forgiveness for from God, and that his material successes are evidence that he’s worthy. No amount of Trump not believing in it will make the existence of Hell less real.

I think Trump’s hell will be existence as a poor Muslim woman surrounded by misogynists and Islamophobes in his next life.

If his Christian followers ever turn on him, that mask will come right off, and the man will set the public image of atheists back decades. We’ll be back to explaining repeatedly that atheists are not all Russian agents, just for a new reason.

Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here?
And say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

Not cool.

Instead of making witless posts about someone who is banned and has no recourse - at a time where people may be waking up to that news from Las Vegas and have concerns for loved ones, friends and family - so I suggest you delete your tasteless post or apologise - right now.

The same applies for anyone else thinking of posting similar statements - don’t.
